One outfit, two price-points, everything responsibly made.
Leaves are changing, temperatures are dropping, days are shortening, and that means it’s time for your yearly reminder about the Standard Shirts from Bleu de Paname. Yes, we post these every fall, but there’s a reason for that (or rather, several reasons): they’re made in France, come in array of winter-ready fabrics, and they only Read more
These Please Call Keys from Noah Lambert are a good idea, if you believe in the kindness of strangers. To me, having my phone number on my key chain in case it gets lost sounds like a ransom situation waiting to happen. But maybe I’m jaded. Either way, I can still appreciate that the keys Read more
There are two sides to the Fidelity label: the Gerald & Stewart side, which makes luxury-priced, heritage-inspired, heavyweight wool outerwear. And the original Fidelity side, which makes bargain-priced, actually-utilitarian, heavyweight wool outerwear. These CPO Shirt Jackets come from the latter.
Wish you had something a little more impressive in your pants? Well, you may be in luck, because we’re giving away one of these stunning Rivet Wallets from The Leather Shop. Handcrafted in the USA out of a single piece of leather, the slim-profile cash-carriers are handsome and hardwearing.

These Jens Melton Overshirts from Norse Projects are made in the EU out of a 70% merino / 20% nylon / 10% cashmere blend.

According to the New Balance website, these US-made 3040 Sneakers have a “unique interior design [that] helps reduce irritation caused by rubbing.” So basically, they’re like that giant bottle of Lubriderm you keep next to your bed, except they’re for your feet, and they’re not mired in shame.
Attention corner-cutters, half-assers, and other lazy bums: these Black Two Tone Jeans from 3sixteen are made in the USA out of an exceptionally soft Japanese selvedge denim, which makes them much easier to break in than typical raw jeans. So, you can get all the fades without all the effort.
