Jesus H. Christ, can Norse Projects stop it? JUST. FUCKING. STOP IT. Every time I think “I need to find X for a decent price,” Norse Projects drops just what I’m looking for and snatches my dolla, dolla bills ya’ll. This time it’s the perfect Slim Black Jeans.
I’m drunk right now, so I’ve decided to let my wife write about Oak’s Portuguese-made, bomber-style Raglan Snap Jacket: “It’s a nice black jacket, I guess. I like the snaps. I feel like you have enough jackets, though. Wait, do you have this jacket? Oh, no this one is cotton. Yeah, I like it, but Read more
I don’t know, maybe living in Iowa for the last ten years has had an effect on me. I mean, I’m really feeling these Five Brother Heavyweight Flannel Shirts even though they are farmland-y as hell. But a US-made flannel you can wear as a jacket in the fall? And that dope throat latch, and Read more
I’m spending Christmas in Denver this year, so I’m thinking about picking up one of these US-made, Polartec Fleece Jackets from Topo Designs. Not only will it be great for battling the weird mountain weather, it’ll also help me to look like a bonafide Coloradan.
I tried, guys. I really did. I was on the straight and narrow. I went to counseling. I distracted myself with other types of jackets. But then Aspesi had to drop these crack-rock Harris Tweed Bombers and now my addiction is back in full force. The two-way zips, quilted nylon lining, and slim fit give Read more
It’s becoming testicle-shriveling cold outside, which means it’s once again time to put away my beautiful, Guatemalan-artisan-made Jed & Marne Shorts. Fortunately, this year I can swap them out with some of these beautiful, Guatemalan-artisan-made Jed & Marne Long Sleeve Shirts. Same hand -woven and -dyed fabrics, same killer construction, but way more seasonally appropriate.
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.
