Throwback to our MadMan x Banana Republic x The Urban Gentleman Feature.
We've vowed to do 3 profiles for our Men of USA, first we had White Collar's Neal Caffrey, second Covert Affairs' Jai Wilcox, and lastly we'll cover Suits' Harvey Specter (played by Carnegie-Mellon graduate, Gabriel Macht). Harvey Specter truly is the epitome of high-life living, and its constantly shown in the series, take the last episode for example– not only was he perusing around in a new Mercedes S-Class, but one of the guest characters commented on his "$12,000 suits".
He dresses like I expect modern day men in power to dress– widespread and cutaway collars dress shirts, thicker tie-knots (none of that skinny sh*t), double vented suit jackets, and suits that aren't slim, but just very well tailored (so they're often confused as "skinny"). oh and lets not forget he sports more ticket pocket suits than any other TV series character I know, and he likes a 3-piece suit every now and then.

We visited the Buckhead store off Peachtree Rd. in Atlanta, and were very kindly greeted by the staff upon entering.
Buckhead store manager and Louisiana-native, Larry Hubbard, charmed us all afternoon, while giving us a few clothing facts and advice along the way– I'll sprinkle in a few of his words throughout. Let me start off by saying we truly had the complete Men's Wearhouse experience. We began in suits and sport coats, hit up pants and dress shirts, then worked our way around to accessories, shoes, and casual wear. Check it all out below:
But anyway, in his breakthrough role, Chris Pine looks pretty good playing Captain James T. Kirk. He also manages to look equally as jaggedly handsome in his latest GQ Summer Suits spread.

CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN
Style Notations: Notice that the most of the candidates opt for a black or navy suit and a red, blue, or gold tie. That’s called classic clean…. Personally, I’m a sucker for a well-tailored navy suit, spread collar white shirt, and red tie or light blue tie- It’s perfection.
One thing that I do HATE about alot of older politicians styles is there tendency to have a skinny knot… it just looks old-fashioned in a bad way. And it makes them look fat because the tie goes from skinny to fat- it’s uneven and very unflattering unless you’re rocking a skinny tie.
