I am not a punk, nor do I like feeling grungy, but dangit if I don’t love a good flannel. This pullover one from Snow Peak is handmade – and hand-dyed – in Japan, and has a peasant collar, side-seam pockets, and a little extra length to it, so it’ll fit my lanky stature.
I’d like to start this off by suggesting you never do a Google search for “jacket fetish,” because I just did, looking for a joke to use in this post, and wound up with countless can’t-be-unseen images of freaky people doing freaky things in, on, and around outerwear.
My 2-year old is a goddamn monster. He draws on everything. Gets food on everything. Wipes his boogers on everything. I literally have to hide the stuff I don’t want covered in marker, or peanut butter, or bodily fluid. But I feel like I wouldn’t have that problem if I had this amazing Dunlap Popover Read more
We’re already halfway through March, so I can understand if you’re asking, “Nick, why the hell are you posting a quilted over-shirt?” You see, my office is cold as shit. I’ve had to stash all sorts of blankets and shackets like a fat guy stashes candy.

I tend to lean more fashion than function because, well, I am fashion. But luckily, this Japanese-made Needles Jean Shirt Jacket doesn’t force me to choose between the two. It takes the classic denim trucker and lightens it up with a lightweight cotton / linen mix, then dyes it with a deep indigo and adds Read more
Have you guys read Watchmen? It’s my favorite graphic novel, and this Cadet Flight Parka totally seems like something one of the members would wear. While it isn’t quite bullet / bomb / Dr. Manhattan disintegration-proof, it is made in the US out of water-repellant nylon, and has hood and waist pull tabs, and a Read more
As the owner of a few Engineered Garments CPO Jackets, I should be able to tell you exactly how the SS15 version fits. But I can’t. Because even though the details are pretty much always the same, Daiki is never not switching up the cut. Every. Freaking. Season.
