Sometimes I wish I was white, so I could have sweet hair. Sure, there are other privileges that come from being caucasian: money, power, respect, safety, but I’d be content with just the Anglo-Saxon mop, so I could use this amazing Bomber Card from Corter Leather. I’d be combing my flowing, golden locks all the Read more
I want to know what baseball team wears jackets as kick ass as these Save Khaki Wool Baseball Jackets, so I can try out for ‘em. If I knew I could get my hands on a New England-made, shawl collared, snap buttoned beauty like this, I’d practice, throwing and… um… batting, and…. uh… sliding?
I DARE YOU to call these Wool Baseball Pants from Muttonhead “sweatpants.” Try it, and the incredibly talented ladies who designed them might come for your neck. See, even though these Canadian-made trou have a drawstring and elastic ankle typical of a sweatpant, they also have impeccable craftsmanship and are made from sustainable wool.
Do you know what it feels like to be overprotected? I don’t mean Peyton Manning all-day-in-the-pocket-to-throw-bombs protection; I mean three layers of waterproof / breathable protection from the elements, like you get with these 3L Tech UX Parkas from Isaora. Poseidon’s wrath couldn’t penetrate these Portuguese-made, Japanese nylon, fish tail style shells.
It seems like only yesterday that I was in the 7th grade and my Nike windbreaker was rubbing up against Angel Kubin’s North Face at the homecoming dance, making sweet nylon-on-fleece music. That’s why these new US-made Windbreaker and Fleece overshirts from Gitman Vintage hold such sentimental value for me.

The details alone – 100% virgin wool, unlined, slim cut and carefully made by some sweet, old Latvian lady – are (almost) enough to make Read more
Quilted always equals better. Blankets. Toilet paper. And of course, this Snap Vest from Utility Canvas. Constructed in New York out of 7 oz. quilted cotton canvas, throw this over your favorite chambray and under your favorite parka for your new favorite brisk weather #menswear ‘fit.
Do you want to get street styled by Tommy Ton? Of course you do. I did wearing a brimmed hat just like this Luke Fedora from Yellow108. So, if you’re in NYC or Paris or Milan or wherever the fuck Tommy gets flown to next, and you’re wearing one of these US-made crushable, recycled-wool hats, Read more
Forget the fact that the abbreviation of Lease on Life Society is “LOLS.” Forget the fact that you’ve never heard of the brand, even though they’ve been around since fall/winter 2012. What you won’t forget? The perfection of their made to order, 100% french terry cotton, scoop necked, round hemmed, chest pocketed No. 1 Pullovers.
My favorite restaurant has over 20 dipping sauces for my wings – and every one of them is great. So even though it’s hard to choose, I know I’ll always be happy with the sauce I get. Fracap’s Scarponcino boots are crafted in Italy and come in approximately 1.8 buttloads of premium leather upper / Read more
