Do you have all your Fall & Winter menswear wardrobe essentials?   Here is a basic checklist to ensure you're ready to Live Dapper during the colder months.  Add or subtract items for a custom fit wardrobe for your lifestyle.

  • 1 Overcoat in grey or navy, add a second custom camel overcoat for variety
  • 2 Suits: 1 flannel & 1 bright slate (the new “it” color), try a custom three piece suit in thick chalk stripe and wear the vest with jeans for a warmer, dressed up look
  • 2 Sport Coats: 1 textured solid in a blue, grey, or charcoal & 1 subtle pattern like a glenplaid or herringbone
  • 5 Dress shirts, 10 if needed the full work week:  white, blue, lavender and 2 fun patterns (try a dot, paisley, or chambray this season), try all custom shirts to ensure a consistent fit
  • 3 Trousers: blue, grey, and tan plus 2 flannel pairs in any color
  • 1 Long sleeve polo, perfect for casual Fridays or weekends, and can easily be worn with a sport coat
  • A cardigan, v-neck, or shawl lapel sweater, try the latter for a more updated look
  • 2 belts, one black, one brown; Try a custom belt for fun in suede or a with a contrast stitch
  • 5 patterned socks in subtle colors, too bold is too last year
  • 5 ties in smaller patterns to make matching easy: 1 of each base color- 2 blue, purple, green,  and red, try wool for an updated look
  • Pocket squares: 2 white, 1 blue, and 2 fun prints, be sure they match your suits and sport coats

On this list you’ll find businesses that exercise the body and the mind, push the boundaries of virtual reality and 3-D printing, and delight fans with rock concerts and (in the case of the No. 1 company, LootCrate) superheroes. Thrill to these companies' amazing exploits--and learn a thing or two about the hard, real work.  See the full article here, Introducing the Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest-Growing Companies  See our listing here, Nicholas Joseph Custom Tailors - Chicago, IL
