In the regular world, almost everything that’s “black” is bad. Black plague. Black mold. The Black Eyed Peas. But in the fashion world, that’s flipped, and the more black things are, the better. Case in point: these US-made, slim-fit Black Denim 5 Pocket Pants from Wings + Horns are a deep, overdyed black that won’t Read more
Let’s talk about this “old rose” colored Graça Jumper from La Paz for a second, shall we? Not to snub the blue or black versions pictured below, but the old rose, it makes my heart sing. And that kangaroo pocket, and the wonderfully textured Shetland wool, and the solid made-in-Portugal construction – this sweater is Read more
If you’re reading this site, you already know that when it comes to fast fashion what you save in price you loose in quality, craftsmanship and fit. But then there are brands like Haberdash’s in-house Bespoke 607 line, which are affordable but still give you a great bang for your buck. These three button Italian Read more
While I’m a fan of McDonalds, I know the quality (or lack thereof) will do numbers on my fragile tummy. So I usually try and seek out a similar yet higher quality substitute. It’s sort of like how these orSlow 60’s Denim Jackets are fashioned after the timeless Levis Trucker, but made in Japan out Read more
I like to think Deluxe named their Japanese-made “Clinton” Button Ups after our first black president, Bill Clinton. Like the shirts, he’s also a nice mid-weight, thanks to his love of jogging and Big Macs. Both Clintons are military-inspired, without having ever served.

Wow. This is embarrassing. I already used my “you could store food in those pockets” joke for the multi-pocketed Nemen jackets I wrote about this morning, so now I don’t know what to say about these multi-pocketed Mil Shirts from Engineered Garments. I mean, aside from the NYC-made shirts’ two gusseted chest pockets and additional Read more
While you may notice the dusty patina of the weather-resistant nylon shell (which is created through a meticulous 3-stage garment dying process), or the removable goose down hood liner, it definitely isn’t the first thing about these Italian-made Nemen Multipocket Smocks that catches the eye. Hell, the name points right to it: there are a Read more
I can’t think of anything clever to write about this Canadian-made Wings + Horns Indigo Field Jacket, but that’s because it’s one the most amazing field jackets I’ve ever seen. First off, you guys already know how I feel about indigo-dyed anything. It’s also got a quilted Primaloft lining for extra warmth.
There’s so much I want about these Japanese-made Ones Stroke Mild Man Shirts. I want that band collar, because regular button-down collars are boring. I want that frayed hem and those unfinished cuffs because they look bad-ass, and I like looking bad-ass.
Welcome to the Jungle Jacket, it’s a tailored thing. This Journal Standard / Hill-Side collab has everything you want, including a slim fit, four front flap pockets, and custom woven label so you know the names. With this jacket you will find, a way to fill your Japanese-made outerwear needs.
