The Risk/Reward Sale Starts Now

It’s that time again. Our twice-yearly Risk/Reward Sale launches today. For those new to Wingtip, this is not your typical sale. Escalating markdowns are common, but with most stores, you don’t have any notice when the sale might increase from 30% off to 40% off, or from 50% to final markdowns. With our Risk/Reward sale, it couldn’t be more transparent.

  • DC Calls NY “LA”

    My head is spinning. Last week, the Wall Street Journal features an article titled, "The Return of Old School Power Attire" about a law firm in Dallas & New York where newbies are taught the proper way to dress through passive-aggressive clues. If your shoes aren’t nice enough, they don’t tell you to buy new… Read more »

  • Examiner.com Calls Us “The Store of the Moment”

    Man-about-town and style writer for Examiner.com, Dino-Ray Ramos, swung by our San Francisco store and had some very pleasant things to say. Money quote: "If Sex and the City?s Mr. Big would shop at a store, this would be it." You can read the full article here.

  • Oval Office Dress Code Controversy

    I am very torn over the political issue that is taking Washington by storm. Not the Economic Stimulus Package, but the fact that President Obama has been photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket on.  The uproar was instigated by former Chief-of-Staff to President Bush, Andrew Card, who likened the scene of President… Read more »

  • Gotta Smell It

    Last week, we announced a new feature called Gotta See It — our attempt to highlight products that are virtually impossible to do justice…virtually. In my eagerness to post something about the amazing Australian Saltwater Hornback Crocodile Belt, I didn’t consider the possibility that I might want to write about how something smelled rather than… Read more »

  • I’m in Love With a Wonderful Guy

    Hopefully, my friends & family will read beyond the title else rumors circulate on the Intertubes. Pointing out that the post’s  itle is stolen from a song from the musical "South Pacific" probably doesn’t help, but what can you do?  My new love is named Luciano. He’s Italian, and he was my holiday gift from… Read more »

  • From the Chairman to Bono to Me to You

    Is there anything Bono can’t do? Musician. Activist. Knight. New York Times Op-Ed contributor.  I’m not sure what the purpose of today’s piece was exactly. It reminded me of the collapse of the Irish economy which was profiled by the NYT Business Section last Sunday. It made me think about the new year. It reminded… Read more »

  • GWB to Snub “21”

    While I try to stay away from the New York Post for health reasons, I was forwarded this article from a friend who knows the "21" Club in Manhattan is one of my favorite spots in ‘Merica. Apparently, every sitting POTUS since FDR has eaten at the famed restaurant with the exception of the current… Read more »

  • 7×7 Magazine Pimps the Fly Guy

    San Francisco’s 7×7 magazine may soon be profiling our new store in print, but in the meantime, they have written up a blurb about us that we couldn’t have done better if we’d done it ourselves.  Money quote: "Guys who?ve endured being dragged to the girliest of shops over the holidays will especially appreciate the… Read more »

  • Our New Year’s Resolutions

    Granted, it’s 6 days late, but that’s because we spent the first week of the new year dropping 10 lbs., spending more time with our friends & family, and paying off all our debt. But seriously, we do have big hopes and dreams for 2009 and thought we’d share them here first:  Blogging more frequently… Read more »
