The Risk/Reward Sale At 75% Off

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.

  • On this Thanksgiving Eve…

    …we can reflect on all of the things we are thankful for: Family. Friends. Health. TARP. Jessica Alba. Small batch bourbon. Google Reader. In that order. Bill Lavin, whose belts we have been carrying for years now, releases dozens, if not hundreds, of new belts every year. It’s tough for us to keep up. Worse… Read more »

  • Our “Hipster” at Treasury

    Over the weekend, the Economist profiled President-Elect Obama’s nominee for Treasury Secretary, Tim Geithner. You might assume we liked the article because of this passage: "The current treasury secretary, Hank Paulson, is reworking the $700 billion bail-out plan on the fly" (emphasis ours), but that statement, for reasons that should be obvious, doesn’t make us… Read more »

  • Update on Safety Razor Shaving

    Since I know you are all very concerned with my shaving regimen, I wanted to provide a brief update on my experiences with Safety Razor shaving. Three weeks in now and I’m now beginning to enjoy it. Here’s what I’ve learned so far: Cream is key. While they call it "wet shaving", cream seems more… Read more »

  • Hanging Around with Kirby

    Kirby Allison is an officer and a gentleman. Kirby is the young entepreneur behind the Hanger Project: a company dedicated to creating hangers that are as beautiful as they are functional. That, in and of itself, is enough to interest me since I used to require that all of my dress shirts were hung on… Read more »

  • May He Rest In Peace

    You don’t start a business like this if you don’t already enjoy reading men’s magazines. I have, at times, been subscribed to GQ, Esquire, Robb Report, Men’s Health, Details, Maxim, Men’s Journal, Playboy (for the articles), and a handful of others that have since disappeared from the landscape (Vitals, Player, FHM to name a few)….

  • UrbanDaddy Covers the Store Opening

    UrbanDaddy, a necessary email subscription for any modern gentleman, first featured us nationally back in 2006. The hit featured Ike Behar’s custom shirt program called C.E.O. for Custom Express Original. Fast forward to 2008, and UrbanDaddy featured the opening of On The Fly’s flagship store in downtown San Francisco on the day that it opened:… Read more »

  • Your Quantum of Solace Premiere

    Tomorrow night (or midnight tonight in some cities), Quantum of Solace, the new Bond film is released in the U.S. (it’s been released just about everywhere else in the world already which may or may not be reflective of our diminished standing in the world). For some, tomorrow night will be a must-see movie night… Read more »

    We are 4 days away from opening our first store in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District. One Embarcadero Center on the Street Level to be exact.

  • Neuroses of a Modern Gentleman III

    I swear this will be my last neurosis related to coffee. Since, according to readers, "real men" don’t drink (1) mochas, or (2) any coffee drink with a straw, I have had little excuse to go back to Peet’s Coffee. After all, we have our Capresso Impressa Z5 in the warehouse that makes a perfect… Read more »
