After a brief hiatus, the Menswear House Podcast returns this week with Episode Three.
This episode, Jake, Jeff, and Kyle argue what it means to be a classic American brand in the current retail market and whether or not we’re too driven by a nostalgic ideal. Brooks Brothers, JPress, Paul Stuart, and Kamakura are all in the mix as we examine what it is these companies can do to reach new markets while still staying true to their heritage as America’s leading classic brands.
We also call our listeners lazy for liking non-iron dress shirts. I mean, C’MON, just wear a wrinkled shirt you lazy MF’ers.
Knottery S/S preview.
Two tiez, 6 pocket squarez guiz. #menswear mockery.
Double breasted, double ties and sextuple squared. J, did you sew 8 extra belt loops on?
This is what’s wrong with #menswear.
I have to ask why people think this is serious. What makes you think 2 ties and 6 pocket squares is a real thing? Who hurt you along the way? Did someone write a rant and you thought, “Yeah, fuck menswear.” Things are “wrong with it,” yet it’s at its most accessible to the average man.
For being such a “funny” crowd #menswear has lost its sense of humour. It was a joke guys. You can go back to circle jerking each other now.

The only way to do a white party is in white tie.
