At first glance, Buck Mason might seem like yet another carbon copy “Heritage” brand. They’ve got the old-timey sounding name. They talk a lot about the importance of domestic manufacturing. Their collection is comprised of selvedge denim jeans, oxford cloth buttondowns, and chambray work shirts. They even employ the consumer-direct business model that so many Read more
These Jens Melton Overshirts from Norse Projects are made in the EU out of a 70% merino / 20% nylon / 10% cashmere blend. I’m not sure how those exact percentages were decided on, but I’d like to think a team of impeccably dressed Norwegian physicists and one of those three story chalkboards were involved.
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.

These DPSTCH Dopp Kits are to other toiletry caddies what those armored, Secret Service SUVs are to other cars. Made in the USA out of heavy-duty ballistic nylon, and boasting features like elastic organizers, dual access pockets and a removable padded valet tray, the bags are like a mini motorcade for your mini Listerine.
What do you guys think about these new Memory Man Sneakers from Veja – ’cause I’m kind of on the fence about ‘em. I mean, I like that that they’re made in Brazil out of organic cotton, veg-tanned leathers, and sustainably harvested Amazonian rubber. And I dig the Visvim FBT / Nike Footscape inspired styling.
These Three Button Blazers from Vetra are cut and sewn in France, come in an array of naturally-dyed wool and cotton fabrics, and cost between $150 and $210 per, so basically as much, or less, than the cost of the shirt you’d be wearing under one. They’re also unstructured, slim-fitting, and have notch lapels and Read more
These new Organic Cotton Tees from Dyer & Jenkins are like a Rambo II era Sylvester Stallone wrapped in a pink silk kimono: strong and soft. Made in Los Angeles out of dense yet velvety, 6.75 oz organic cotton jersey, the shirts take coziness to a whole new steroid-addled, jungle-dwelling, guerrilla warfare-ing level.
