I’m always on the lookout for a great bargain. For the 99%, it isn’t realistic to wear custom-tailored suits from Savile Row or $200 designer selvedge denim jeans. And you shouldn’t have to spend untold sums of cash to look great. To combat this inequity, Combatant Gentleman sells clothing directly to the consumer only via the Internet. This is a growing trend in menswear. What makes this brand stand out though is their price point.
I haven’t tried their clothes, although I plan on purchasing some to review once I move back to the U.S. in April. I’m really interested to test out the quality of their clothing given the reasonable price point which is lower than most online-only menswear labels I’ve seen. So keep your eyes peeled for a follow up post. Today I just want to introduce you to Combatant Gentleman and name off a few of my favorite pieces that are currently have available.
First, I’ll just jump into their suits. With a price range of $160 – $200 these would be a great pick for the recent college grad just entering the workforce. Sometimes it’s also nice to have a suit you can use and abuse while not worrying too much about getting a stain or tear in the fabric.
With one of these suits you won’t need to worry about a spill on your next wine tasting tour. I personally like the grey plaid three-piece (above) and the brown nailhead (below) suits.
Selvedge denim can be ridiculously expensive yet Combatant Gentleman has made a range of jeans that’ll leave you with some money left over to stuff into your new pockets. These jeans are made with denim milled in Japan and sewn in California. There are grey and black options, however, I prefer the classic indigo.
It’s difficult to find a good looking dress shirt under $40. Don’t fret though, ’cause these guys have you covered (literally).
A micro-windowpane pattern like the one above in navy adds texture to any outfit. I’m also partial to this green & blue gingham shirt.
What good is a dress shirt without a tie to go with it? My two choices to go with the navy shirt above are these two ties. The first is a purple tie which has a “holepunch” pattern. The second is named “Coral Gables” and at $16 you can’t go wrong.
Stay true to yourself. Be kind to others. Define your own style.
