Today's post I will be talking about my experience with two, in my opinion, great brands. Warby Parker, the great fashion forward stylish glasses. And Strong Suit Clothing, the fashion forward stylish clothing for men. . .
First off, both of these brands give you such a bang for your buck. Let me start off with Strong Suit Clothing.
One thing I can't stand is when certain brands/Companies give you a product that is nowhere near how much you should be paying, or not giving you the quality of a product for the dollar amount you're paying. Same thing. For example, Hugo Boss, John Varvatos USA, These brands that you can get a suit off the rack and is also a fused garment (stock Glue) for about $795-$1000. That's ridiculous, in my opinion, you shouldn't have to pay more than $350 for a fused garment suit. Especially if it's off the rack. So this is when Strong Suit comes into play. For about $795-$895 I can get a Made to Measure garment that is a stitched half canvassed with a wing facing ( French facing) finish. For around the same price as one of these off the rack suits from the two brands listed above, I can get this great piece from strong suit that will last longer, look better, lay better, and also shape to me the more I wear so it'll look better the tenth time I wear my suit, and will move with my body more than a stiff glued garment. Also where else are you going to find a double breasted suit like mine off the rack? Nowhere. I can choose my style suit, my pattern, customizable to my taste and style all close to the same price. I love it. I get what I need from this brand. Now, are they the best suits in the whole world? No. But who needs it? This brand does what I need it to do and more. You can find the strong suit on their website at strongsuitclothing.com or you can go to some of your local Nordstroms and get their pieces there. Or if you're in the Nashville area, come visit me at Nordstrom at the mall at green hills to get your first Strong Suit.
Now Warby Parker. First off, amazing service! They have all the right people working for them. They have all the right product, great fashion forward pieces, and on top of that, they're prices are amazing. I used to pay around $300 for my glasses and always was left confused as to why I paid so much for plastic, and I thought eh maybe because of my prescription. Then I go to Warby Parker and I'm paying around $130, more than half the price! The brand gives me what I need and more, I purchased three frames and I love them all, one of my favourites is shown in the photo above. Also, another great thing about them is with in the first year of my purchase with my new glasses and I need to change the prescription, they'll change them out for free! It's so great to Check them out for you new pair of glasses!
Now, this is all my opinion based on experience with different brands and my knowledge. I have a passion for getting people good quality pieces for the price they deserve to pay, not to over pay for product that doesn't compare to the dollar amount they purchased it for. Gents check these brands out, up your wardrobe a little bit. You can't go wrong with these brands.
