They say you can’t please everyone, but that hasn’t stopped Beams+ from trying. Their SS15 shirt collection includes oxfords, madrases, ginghams, broadcloths, and chambrays, all of which are made in Japan and have button down collars, single v-stitched chest pockets, and box pleats and locker loops on the back.
It’s great that American Apparel finally fired their piece of shit CEO, but I’d be lying if I said the brand didn’t still make me feel kind of gross. Maybe it’s the visible assholes in their advertising? Whatever the reason, I’m willing to look past it for these Low Top Sneakers.
These Pistol Lake Crew Neck Sweatshirts are made in Los Angeles out of custom-milled 16 oz. french terry, have raglan sleeves and a v-insert at the neck, and only cost $65 a pop. Pistol Lake kind of sounds like the name of some brooding, slow-moving indie drama, doesn’t it?
These Chicago-made Flannels from Stock Mfg. Co. were already a deal when they were priced at $88. But now they’re only $65. I mean, that’s almost too low, right?

I know it’s silly, but there’s a part of me that really likes having something no one else does. So I was a little hesitant to tell you guys about East Dane’s Southern Field Industries sale. See, I’ve got one of the Japanese-made PX Backpacks, and literally every time I wear it people stop me Read more
You guys, I’m not making this up. The other night I was telling my wife that I wanted a gray cotton jersey bomber with a super heather-y fabric and a two-way metal zipper, for under $150. And then, like, a day later I find this California-made Stadium Jacket from Welcome Stranger. I mean, this thing Read more
