When it comes to writing about clothing, some have kindly called us prolific. Others, perhaps closer to the mark, have been heard to utter, "OMG ... not another article by Kelly & Kabbaz"!

Wherever the truth may lie, there isn't much about what we offer which hasn't some sort of educational tome. From button-sewing and shirtings to garment care and socks, you'll probably find something - hopefully useful - in the list below.

Not that we need encouragement, but if you have an idea for an article you and others might find helpful, please send it to us. If we aren't knowledgeable on the subject, we'll get one of our artisans to answer the questions and present it here.

Most of the pieces were written by us. Some were contributed by our artisans or other professionals in the field including master tailor and wardrobe consultant Jon Green (Jon Green New York Bespoke Clothiers) and John Cusey, our resident expert on shoes.

Right now we're looking forward to new contributions from, among others, Massimiliano Bresciani (Bresciani 1970) and a new series currently being written by Jon Green.

Check back here regularly for new clothing instructions, learning, and entertainment. "Prolific" knows no bounds.
