We are excited to announce the opening of 2 new Cuffwear Express machines at Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). You will find one of our high tech machines from Signifi Solutions right outside the Delta Sky Lounge near gate A17 and also at E8. We have a great selection of Cuffwear cufflinks, Power Stays and wallets from Wurkin Stiffs and some amazing ladies and men's socks form JHJ Designs.
The machines are set up to give travelers the convenience of familiar E-commerce style shopping via a large touch screen display with the immediate gratification of receiving the item on the spot, dispensed in a very premium, smooth way with each item being delivered in a gift box or gift bag.
This is a great opportunity for last minute gift ideas, convenient shopping while you wait for your flight and a great way to quickly pick up some items you may have forgot to pack.

We are excited about the expansion of our Cuffwear Express automated retail machines. 2 years ago we were introduced to Signifi Solutions, a Canadian technology company specializing in automated retail. Signifi works with some amazing companies, Home Depot, Rogers, Staples, The Source, Canada Post and many others. We launched our first test machine with Signifi for Cuffwear Express in 2014 and the results were incredible.
With the success of our first machine in a Toronto retail shopping mall (shown above), we secured a prime location in the Detroit Metropolitan Airport and launched this machine in January of this year. (shown below)
In addition to a wide selection of Cuffwear cufflinks, we are excited to offer Wurkin Stiffs' patented magnetic collar stays, amazing RFID protected wallets and their new microfibre pocket squares. We also carry fun and stylish socks form JHJ Designs.
It is quite an amazing experience, each product is dispensed via a robotic cart in full view of the customer and is delivered already packaged in a gift bag. This innovative concept combines the ease and familiarity with e-commerce style shopping along with the immediate gratification of instant delivery. We are excited to be launching two new Cuffwear Express machines into the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International airport, the world's busiest airport, in April.
Stay tuned for more US airport locations coming soon!
In this week's video we take a look at some stylish Men's outerwear. The north east has had a mild November/December so far so a lot of us are still wearing fall coats and its been great. It's only a matter of time before the temperatures start to drop and we will need to break out the super warm coats.
Here is a quick recap of the styles shown in the video:
1. Top Coat - this is certainly the best option over a suit but don't be shy to wear it over a more casual look, just make sure its not oversized otherwise you may be mistaken for Keanu Reeves in the Matrix
2. Double Breasted Pea Coat
I really like the military influence of this look and really enjoy the really fitted style
3. Duffle Coat
A duffle coat, is a coat made from duffel, a coarse, thick, woollen material. The name derives from Duffel, a town in the province of Antwerp in Belgium where the material originates. Duffle bags were originally made from the same material. This is a neat style with some really cool variations out there.
4. Shearling coat.
Shearling is a skin from a recently sheared sheep or lamb that has been tanned and dressed with the wool left on. This style has made a strong comeback this season so you will see a lot of them this winter.
5. Puffer Jacket
A puffer jacket’s trademark is its sectioned or quilted design. The coat’s exterior is comprised of a number of puffy sections that are separated by seams and are filled with down or a synthetic material that is intended to provide warmth to the wearer. The jackets are typically both light and warm, unlike heavy wool coats.
A parka or anorak is a type of coat with a hood, often lined with fur or faux fur. The hood protects the face from freezing temperatures and wind. The Caribou Inuit invented this kind of garment, originally made from caribou or seal skin, for hunting and kayaking in the frigid Arctic. Some Inuit anoraks require regular coating with fish oil to retain their water resistance.

Have a great Holiday season and we will be back in late January.
This week, we look at some fun and festive Holiday party attire.
This week we look at some the basics of Men's sweaters.
With the colder weather hitting the north, its a perfect time to look at some of the basics of Men's Sweaters.
Our video goes through the basics of the Crew Neck, V Neck, Cardigan, Cable Knit and Turtleneck. The most popular fabrics are wool, cotton, cashmere and blends. It's important to buy a sweater that is comfortable yet you want to make sure it fits properly. Often times, guys buy sweaters that are too big and it tends to look sloppy. The V neck is a definitely a flattering look and should be an important part of the winter wardrobe.
Proper care is important, make sure you read the label and never hand your sweaters as this will typically stretch out the shape of it and also leave "hanger dimples" in the shoulders.
If you still need an ugly sweater for a party this season, check out the fun sweater's at Nordstrom, as shown below.

This week we take a closer look at the very basics of Men's suit jackets and blazer styles.
There are many variations and customization options for men's suit jackets and blazers these days. The custom, made-to-measure market has never been hotter or more affordable in North America. We will focus on the proper fit in one of our upcoming segments where we will interview an expert, but for now we will just go over the basics of the more popular styles.
First we will look at the lapel styles:
Above are the three basic styles of lapels. Below we show the 2 basic jacket styles.
The single breasted can come with one or more buttons in a row and the double breasted jacket is defined by the overlapping front flap with 2 rows of parallel buttons.
The options for the back of the jacket are shown below, the double vent (the far left) is the most popular.
There are many detailed custom features that you can add to your suit or blazer to make it more personal, some of the more popular items are:
Ticket pocket - the small pocket that is occasionally found above the right hip pocket on a jacket. It follows the angle and style of the pocket below it.
Pick stitching - visible stitches around the lapel of the suit jacket or blazer, using hand sewn.
Surgeon's cuffs - this is where the buttons on the cuff of the jacket are functional and not just decorative.
Contrast stitching - a detail where the lapel hole has a contrast color thread or one or more of the cuff holes has a contrast color thread.
Patch pockets - a pocket made of a separate piece of cloth sewn onto the outside of a garment.
Here are some questions answered that may be helpful.
what type of hanger can I use for my suits and blazers?
never use a wire hanger, always use the big hanger that came with the suit or blazer, this will help preserve the shape and structure of the shoulders of the suit, and hang up your suit! .....every. single. time!
should I dry clean my suit jacket and suit pants always at the same time?
yes, dry cleaning can fade the original color of the fabric over time so its best to always dry clean the complete suit at the same time
why are the outside, side pockets sewn shut on my jacket?
you should never use the side pockets of your suit jacket, using them will compromise the shape of your jacket so its best to keep them sewn shut
is the fit of my jacket important?
this is the most important part, the #1 issue in menswear is a lot of guys buy clothes that are too big for them, we will interview an expert in one of our future segments
