The final shot of the #AFewGoodMenSG campaign. On behalf of the whole jing bang, our sincere thanks and gratitude to those whom had given support one way or another. The response was wayyy better than expected. Humbled, methinks what's important, is that we definitely hit the mark on the main purpose of the campaign--which was to create some awareness, sparse in this region--on dressing up, and the wholesome lifestyle in which it cultivates. As we bid our au revoir, a quote from a gentleman himself! Samuel Langhorne Clemens or better known by his pen name, Mark Twain. "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog."
For being the first point-of-contact at inspiring majority of men to wear proper clothes as well as taking it off. Today we acknowledge, we appreciate and we honor all the beautiful, strong, intelligent, empowered women -- all over the world. Happy International Women's Day 2014 ladies.

Parisian Gentleman (http://parisiangentleman.fr) says it best—— "These days, it is more likely for a man to feel good about having immaculately polished shoes and to find satisfaction in knowing that a belt is rarely needed with a suit in the first place, since the complete body line of a man looks much better when he opts for trousers designed for no belt, thus avoiding the “cutting of the man in half” visual effect that a belt causes."
First study the rules, and learn from them. Only once the foundation is right, and this very important. That your anchored by the right things and not by what your pissed drunk date mentioned last night. Only when that's set in stone —— then break them. Cause' every gentleman knows that rules are only but guidelines. Like how all your colleagues are talking about getting another leather shoes in a dark tone. You could opt for a navy suede pair in a clean, sleek design, as shown on the picture. Suede shoes are normally casual, but with the right color and shape, you could make it work. And thats awesome. Just remember, you can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes. RH

"From being a consultant to a co-partner and shareholder of Hertslet & Co. Bespoke - My responsibilities and undertakings may have changed but one thing is for certain. Never has there been a day on the job or for the matter of fact, since the day I stumbled upon the world of menswear, that I have ever stopped loving what I do, even for a second. The passion burns as strong, if not stronger than before. Being different yet complimentary at the same time in terms of the way we dress is a juxtaposition of Hertslet & Co's brand philosophy of being "Cut from a different cloth". While I am trained in and prefer the simplicity of classic menswear, my partner is the creative tour-de-force driving the brand with different ideas and interpretations of what style means to each individual." ON THE FUTURE OF HERTSLET & CO. BESPOKE My vision for Hertslet & Co. at the end of the day is for the brand to grow and develop to such a stage whereby it becomes iconic in its own right, a la Tom Ford. The brand is not be recognized by the people behind it or the label it adorns, but the product itself becomes an icon that it is instantly recognizable by connoisseurs and aficionados alike." MENSWEAR QUOTE: "Personally, I believe that dressing up is not merely to flaunt or peacock. but rather as a sign of respect for the host and the occasion. Dressing well empowers and builds confidence in an individual to excel and achieve their goals. Simply put, a suit is the modern day gentleman's chain-mail armor in the battlefield that is the corporate world. An inspiring quote that I have adopted as my personal motto? "Dress not for the present, but for who you aspire to be in the future." Only when a man is empowered, will he be able to control his own destiny and create history."
