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.

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.
It makes me sad that East Dane made this S.N.S. Herning Naval Jacket look so pedestrian with their Gap Factory Outlet styling, but that doesn’t deter me from wanting one. 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
