Welcome to “How to be Swell” This blog is about the day-to-day that I come across about being swell. I will address almost anything, but mostly I’ll stick to clothes, watches, and style. What I write here is primarily addressed to gentlemen, however the ladies should feel free to be entertained as well.
This is a forum for the things that interest me and hopefully you too. I will be reviewing cool new and vintage stuff, and discussing the swell culture at large. I am a jeweler, a hopeless romantic, a die-hard traditionalist. I collect watches, guns, and cars, I like to look good,and to entertain. I am a vintage fanatic. I want to harken back to days when men were men, they knew how to dress, how to act, and how to treat a lady. Back to the days of old hollywood when people the likes of Carey Grant looked impeccable on the silver screen, and off. I came up with the idea for titling this blog from the retro shorts that they used to play on nick at night. They ran in between some great classic television shows. I hope you enjoy what you see, and continue to come back, because…that’d be swell.
