What We Read This Week


As it turns out, there’s a lot more to the internet than just clothes, or, at least that’s what the other Well Spent writers keep telling me. So, I’ve decided we should start doing a weekly round-up of our favorite clothing and non-clothing related links. Welcome to the first edition of What We Read This Week. Happy clicking.

Since discovering it a few months back, Milstil has quickly become one of my favorite blogs thanks to their posts on the not often seen (or blogged about) side of menswear.
