This blog is a personal journal about my own experiences as a self-made “thousandaire” in pursuit of sartorial stealth and effective living on a limited budget, with a loyal readership of discerning and interested men who aren’t millionaires but who like to look good and live well. The message is emphatically about well-made, great-looking, high quality goods and services without the luxury price tag. In terms of price, quality and aesthetics, your product or service must be the right editorial fit.
The advertising model is simple: banner ads. Product reviews and “help us get the word out” stories are available to advertising partners ONLY.

THE FINE PRINT: All advertisers must meet four criteria: the goods or services must be handsome, well-made, affordable, and workable, as determined editorially by me. Ads must be approved before placement to ascertain that the content is compatible with my values, tastes and standards. After placement, an advertisement can be removed at request of the sponsor at any time, however payment is non-refundable.
Advertisers have no extraneous control over the content of the blog’s content and shall make no request to edit, remove, or otherwise alter any content on the site.
