We always joke about how many bomber jackets I write about on Well-Spent, but the truth is those aren’t even my favorite articles of clothing. That’s right, motherfuckers! Crewnecks and pullovers make me even more randy, and these Snow Peak Wool Knit Pullovers are straight sartorial Viagra. Made in Japan, they’ve got contrast stitching, elbows Read more
I used to want to be an astronaut, but I don’t really like math, or physics, or any other science-y junk, so I decided to pursue a different career instead. However, now that Isaora has dropped these Insulated Tech Oxfords, well, I still don’t want to be an astronaut, but I can feel like one Read more
My wife and I attended a wedding in Branson, MO this past weekend, and had a grand ol’ time. But I keep thinking about what could’ve been had I been wearing one of these new Jackets from The Hill-Side. Would the droves of women throwing themselves at me and my NYC-made, slim fit, patch pocketed Read more
This Blue Blue Japan Wool Pastral Hat looks like it could have belonged to a 19th century hobo, and because of that I love it. Between the thick wool body, channel-stitched brim, and tattered indigo-dyed ribbon, I can totally picture it perched atop the head of a man named Oilslick McGillicuddy, as he roamed the Read more
Do you want me to talk about the 5.5 oz waxed cotton / nylon shell? Or about the custom-knit worsted collar? Or the brass snaps with leather reinforcements? Or maybe the 700 power down fill? Well too bad; I’m not gonna talk about any of that shit. You’re just going to have to pick-up one Read more
Sometimes, I gotta break free from the pomp and circumstance of menswear and just take it easy, you know? Like, I don’t need a collar. Hell, I don’t even need full length sleeves! Maybe that means I’m losing it. Or maybe I just really want this Japanese-made Deluxe “Cannonball” Baseball Jersey.
Jesus H. Christ, can Norse Projects stop it? JUST. FUCKING. STOP IT. Every time I think “I need to find X for a decent price,” Norse Projects drops just what I’m looking for and snatches my dolla, dolla bills ya’ll. This time it’s the perfect Slim Black Jeans.
I’m drunk right now, so I’ve decided to let my wife write about Oak’s Portuguese-made, bomber-style Raglan Snap Jacket: “It’s a nice black jacket, I guess. I like the snaps. I feel like you have enough jackets, though. Wait, do you have this jacket? Oh, no this one is cotton. Yeah, I like it, but Read more
I don’t know, maybe living in Iowa for the last ten years has had an effect on me. I mean, I’m really feeling these Five Brother Heavyweight Flannel Shirts even though they are farmland-y as hell. But a US-made flannel you can wear as a jacket in the fall? And that dope throat latch, and Read more
I’m spending Christmas in Denver this year, so I’m thinking about picking up one of these US-made, Polartec Fleece Jackets from Topo Designs. Not only will it be great for battling the weird mountain weather, it’ll also help me to look like a bonafide Coloradan.
