So, my wife (humblebrag) bought a pair of these Aigle Jodhpur Ankle Boots last week, and I’m actually kinda jealous. Not only are they exceedingly well made (handcrafted in France), they’re also 100% waterproof (the upper looks like leather, but is really rubber), so you can wear ‘em anywhere.
These Classic Peacoats from Sterlingwear are made in the USA out of 32 oz. melton wool. Just how thick is 32 ounces? Well, the average jean jacket is around 11 ounces, so imagine wearing three of those at once. Plus, the Peacoats have a full quilted lining, so throw a blanket on top of that Read more
Everyone, meet Armitage & McMillan, a new store owned by the former Operations Manager of Unis New York, and the former Vintage and Antiques Buyer for The Brooklyn Circus. Not only does A&Mc offer an excellent assortment of quality men’s goods from an equally excellent assortment of quality men’s brands (The Hill-Side, Winter Session, Save Read more
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. They offer a wide assortment of scents, all of which are pretty great. And, they want to award one lucky well spent reader with not one, not two, Read more
In the immortal words of John Wayne, “giddy up motherfuckers.” Okay, I don’t think he actually said that, but he might if he saw these new Calfskin Bit Loafers from Oak Street Bootmakers (and if he wasn’t dead). 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.
