You guys don’t know this, but Brad censors me, like, a shoot-ton. If you got the raw, uncut Nick, you’d be getting something a lot like these Beautiful Fül BF Raw Hem Sweatshirts. Made in LA, the heavy cotton pullovers have a ribbed neck and cuffs for your pleasure, and a raw hem that adds Read more
A little insight into my racial ambiguity: my grandfather is Scottish. That’s right, I have Scot’s blood. I’ve even participated in the Scottish Games, bitches. So you can bet your sweet Lorna Doone that your boy loves him some Blackwatch. Mix that beautiful pattern with a bomber-style jacket, like this Broom Baseball Jacket from Common Read more
I’m not even going to pretend like I’m a scarf guy. But I’m still intrigued by these Karu-Ori Scarves from Kiriko. Artisan-made in Japan, the scarves are woven on generations old wooden looms using the Kasuri technique, which gives the intricate patterns a slightly blurred effect.
Though it’s rarely seen, your wallet plays an important role in your life. And since my current wallet looks like an old dog turd, I’ve decided to trade it in for this California-made, Horween leather Vernon Wallet from Headlands Handmade. Not only will it hold all my dolla dolla bills y’all, it’ll also gain a Read more
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!

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.
