Welcome to our newest regular roundup feature: The Sunday Swag Report (TSSR). We have scoured the Internet to bring you some of the most interesting, informative, funny, etc. style articles from the past couple of weeks.

Brooklyn suit-maker Martin Greenfield brings 70 years of expertise to the set of the hit HBO series Boardwalk Empire and provided some really great suit fit tips to GuiltManual.

TSBMen (aka The Style Blogger) wants to know “Is Your Tailor Full of Sh*t?,” writing “…the custom tailoring business can be a very shady one. I’ve seen clients pay $5K+ for ‘handmade in NYC’ and receive suits that are worth more like $500 ‘machine made in Hong Kong.’” He then goes on to provide 7 important questions to ask your suit maker to help you snuff out the pros from the novices. These points could be really helpful to dapperQs because (1) many of us are just buying a suit for the first time and do not even know what it even is we’re looking for and (2) there are new suit companies popping up left and right that are vying for our dollar, some that have proven worthy of dressing celebrities on the red carpet and others that have gone bankrupt and run off with our wedding suit deposits! Read TSBMen’s questions for tailors here.

Embedded in the Men’s Style Pro post on why black double monkstraps are this season’s pre-fall shoe trend are some equally awesome tips on how to pull off a monochromatic ensemble (three examples of monochromatic outfits are provided). We’re digging the style…and the shoes. More here.
