Welcome to A Rake In Progress!
I'm originally from central Iowa, but I now live and work in Washington, D.C. Like many men, my passion for tailoring began at work, but it was soon obvious few others in DC viewed suiting as anything other than an unfortunate necessity of their chosen line of work.
In search of inspiration, I turned to the online menswear community and found a vibrant community of fellow enthusiasts. My menswear journey is still young, and I'm far from an expert, but I think I've learned a few things along the way. I started this blog to share my journey and hopefully inspire others in turn.
In particular, I will try to focus on classic menswear products that give the wearer an elegant air at an affordable price because I believe it shouldn't take a fortune to dress well.
I hope you enjoy my blog and thank you for reading.
