True story: it costs more to manufacture clothing in NYC than it does in Italy. So when Aimé Leon Dore announced they were going to produce their entire third collection there, I knew it was going to be some king shit. And it is. Comprised of french terry sweats, cableknit sweaters, thermal-lined flannels, distressed selvedge Read more
Anyone who has children can appreciate how seriously I take my down time. I plan what I’ll watch on Netflix, what delicious meal I’ll consume, and what lavish habiliments I’ll be draped in, which will most likely be one of these Hooded Robes from Reigning Champ. They’re made in Canada out of midweight cotton twill Read more
To you, these Monocle Kamedajima Slippers may seem opulent. But not to me. For I am a king, deserving of Japanese hand-spun slub yarn and a cushioned sole in which to gallivant around my palace while getting fed fat-ass, juicy grapes by one of my 27 wives.
This Foreign Rider Co. Long Sleeve Tee looks like a regular ol’ t-shirt you could get at Kohl’s or Walgreens for $5 bucks, right? WRONG! This New Zealand Merino wool joint is medium weight for all year comfort, has flatlock stitching to eliminate bulging seams, and it’s expertly-made in Canada.
I recycle a lot of things. Cans. Cereal boxes. Jokes I find on the internet. But none of those are quite as cozy as these Faribault Woolen Mill Recycled Throws. Recycled wool gives them a unique heathered appearance and texture, while a touch of recycled acrylic adds softness and longevity.
Melange-flavor wool is my favorite flavor wool, and Upstate Stock is keeping me dripped up and draped out in it with these Wool and Deerskin Gloves.

Crewneck sweatshirts are a lot like bomber jackets – it’s the little details that differentiate them (and make it okay to own two or three or ten of each). Case in point, these relaxed fit, cotton fleece Altona Sweatshirts from Sködia have a fleece-lined, on-seam side pocket.
I’ve been trying to keep Rough & Tumble under-the-radar because its rare, and awesome, and I don’t want any of their stuff to sell out before I can get it for myself. But, being the nice guy that I am, I’ve decided to throw y’all a bone and let you know about their new LC Read more
Joshu+Vela’s Bucket Totes are made in San Francisco out of impenetrable 24 oz. cotton canvas. Alright, penetrable by, like, knives or bullets, but still super tough. They also feature leather handles that are tanned with organic vegetables including kale and radishes.
Made in the USA. Cordura Ballistic 1050D nylon body. Horween Chromexcel leather accents. YKK hardware. If I told you those were features of a backpack, how much do you think that backpack would cost? The answer: $79. That’s right, only $79 for these new Ballisitic Backpacks from Gustin.
