Well here’s a fine how do you do (that’s an expression people still use, right?). These new Portugese-made Wool Civilian Blazers and Trousers from Apolis are only $486 for the pair. That’s less than $500 for a European-made, winter-weight, unstructured, slim-fit suit.
Holy shit you guys, I picked up two of these Merino Crew Slim Fit Jumpers from Charles Tyrwhitt a few weeks back, and I can honestly say it was one of the best purchases I’ve made all year. 100% superfine merino wool (thin enough for under a blazer), great slim fit, made in Italy, and Read more
These US-made Freeman Seattle x Crescent Down Works Vests are like plush little time machines. Everything from the design, to the materials, to the colorways, to the factory they were made in hasn’t changed in over 40 years. So basically they’re like a trip back to when your parents were still cool.
At only $56 a pop, these LA-made Sunset Joggers from Rustic Dime pretty much sell themselves, so, yeah, not a whole lot for me to do here. I guess I could also mention that they come in both 100% cotton twill and ripstop, and that there are over a dozen colors to choose from, but Read more
What’s so good about Good Candle? Well, they handcraft all of their candles in Brooklyn using American grown soy wax and high quality fragrance and essential oils.

Hand-stitched in Maine, the slip-ons have a Horween calfskin leather upper, calfskin lining, leather sole with a Read more
One outfit, two price-points, everything responsibly made.
Imagine if your favorite jacket and your favorite sweater had a baby, and then that baby grew up to be a Nobel Prize winning scientist / Olympic athlete / male model. That’s basically the story of these new M-Back FreeShells from Outlier. They have a weather-proof nylon outer, cozy merino inner, and a slew of Read more
It’s official, guys: no-sock season is no more. Thankfully, our buddies at American Trench are now offering their excellent US-made socks in an equally excellent discounted bundle. When you buy one Wool & Silk Boot Sock, one Cotton Ribbed Sock, and one 2014 Striped Sock, you’ll automatically get 20% off all three.
There are some things in life that just can’t be explained. Like how the Pyramids were built. Or why M. Night Shyamalan is still allowed to direct movies. Or, how Jomers is able to make these Chinos in New York City out of American and European fabrics, but only charge $38 a pair.
