“Classic Menswear with a modern twist” is how one would describe The William Malcolm Collection. Created by, well, William Malcolm, the collection focuses on custom suits, tuxedos, overcoats, and accessories. Every garment is designed and hand-crafted for each individual client based on their specifications.
Upon entering his website, its feels like you’re stepping into the lobby of a luxury hotel or high end boutique– the jazz puts you in quite the relaxing, luxe, and ready to shop mood.
But before you begin shopping, stop by the museum, yeah that’s right– the museum, lol. It’s filled with custom William Malcolm suits (that may give you an idea of what you want) and inspirational quotes. After you have perused the gallery for awhile, you’re ready to design…
You’re able to create a custom suit from his Black Label, WM Monogram, and Formal Wear Collections; you feel like a designer as you pick and choose between the hundreds of fine fabrics that are offered. Once you’re done creating, lounge around the website to learn more about designer William Malcolm.
William Malcolm doesn’t just stop at designing modernly classic suits, he’s also a guy that’s working to uplift young American men. He’s the founder of The Suit Project, a program that focuses on self empowerment, educational advancement, presentation skills, and entrepreneurship, among other things for young men that are 18-22 years of age. Many mentoring programs tend to focus on teenagers and young kids, but most people can admit that ages 18-22 are crucial development years for those preparing to enter the “real world”. It’s great to see someone recognizing that there is a need and is poignantly responding to that need. Learn more about The Suit Project here.
Be sure to support Urban Gent William Malcolm as he continues to design elegant suits and works to change young lives. See more of The William Malcolm Collection here.

Adam Kimmel. frumpy see as frumpy do. Even though it seems as though many have moved passed baggy and saggy and turned to more clean lines and straight silhouettes, Kimmel like other designers this season, are showing otherwise. Here again we have a rising of the over-sized and bulky… do we leave it or do we love it…. who knows. But he certainly takes the worker look to a real level, almost giving each look its own personal story- and for that reason I am a fan… 7.8/10.
PS- I live for the star and striped sweater. People who dress like this in real life are always so cool.
Alessandro Dell Acqua. flesh tones, cuffs, bigger tops smaller bottoms, structured shoulders… in the water we all must go (high-watered pants)… Though Dell'Acqua's new catch phrase is "bourgeois revolution", I for some reason, get a feeling of "modern goth with alot of class"- clean yet emotional in subtle ways- the elongated sleeves, cuffed pants, flesh tones… immaculate pieces for the most part… 7.9/10.
Alexander McQueen. drama is his middle name- always has been always will be. I must say aside from the scary faces McQueen unsurprisingly brings it once more- his array of designs, patterns, textures, shapes, can easily be seen in the wardrobe of any well dressed man. When viewing his collection, like always, you have to look at the individual pieces. And the pieces are very well executed. Though I feel like these models are going to jump off the screen and get me- I do like the overall collection… but I didn't however like the order of the show, I would have changed it a bit… 8.9/10… The man is a brute.
