These Barracks Blazers from Cadet remind me a lot of the Baker Jackets from Engineered Garments, and as an admitted EG-Stan, that’s a big, big compliment. Cut and sewn in Brooklyn, the Barracks are unlined, lightweight, and beautifully tailored. And now that they’re on sale, they’re half the price of the Bakers.
Fatherhood is great and all, but lately I’ve been looking more and more like a soccer mom and less and less like my usually fantastic self, and that’s no good. Thankfully, Epaulet just replenished their stock of Kamigata Jackets, so I can get back on stylish track.
I used to despise zippers. I didn’t want them on anything, especially shirts. “Buttons only!” I would say. But that was before I saw this US-made, 100% cotton Zip Up Shirt Jacket from Steven Alan. With a classic CPO fit that’s perfect for layering underneath, this multi-season shacket has made be a zipper believer. And Read more
To the park during a monsoon. To the beach during a sandstorm. On a magic carpet ride through a swamp with Aladdin. These are all the places I want to take this Imogene + Willie Selvage Canvas Tote. Not only can the US-made bag’s sturdy cotton canvas with red selvage detail withstand the brutalist of Read more
These Cadete Shirts from La Paz are great for a bunch of reasons, like the 3/4 placket, and durable Portuguese construction. But it’s those two official-looking front pockets that I’m really excited about. They look so important. You know, the type of pockets you put your hands in when you’re conversing with a colleague in Read more
Henleys are usually worn as an underlayer, but when they look as dope as these ones from Homespun, why hide ‘em? Made out of soft mock twist cotton jersey from Japan, these short- and long-sleeved Standard Henleys have all the qualities I look for in something kept close to my beautiful, sun-kissed skin.
3sixteen cofounder Andrew Chen is a buddy of mine, so I want to be as tactful and respectful with my next statement as I can. This 3Sixteen Chambray Workshirt looks like it fits like shit, but it doesn’t. You see, the shirt’s made in the USA out of 100% cotton selvedge chambray from Japan, which Read more
Can’t breath. Hyperventilating. Must have this Arrow Jacket from Needles. Life depends on it. Boiled linen. Not sure what that is. But, I want it. On my skin. Great shade of grey. Goes with anything. Zipper chest pocket detail. Lord. Have. Mercy. And it’s marked down to $311 at Inventory.

I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover, but I just can’t help it with these Patrik Ervell Standard Jeans. I mean, sure, the breathable cotton twill is great, and the made-in-NYC construction is top notch, and the subtle detailing of the gray suede patch and blank white tab on the Read more
