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
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.

Fracap’s Scarponcino boots are crafted in Italy and come in approximately 1.8 buttloads of premium leather upper / Read more
Before I even started writing about these Canadian-made 4 Horsemen Supplies Extended Cotton Flannel Shirts, my spidey-senses were already tingling. I could hear the moans and groans about the “extended” length, transverse back seam, and fabric loop at the ream hem. But, I could also sense that, for some of you, the soft cotton flannel Read more
Before I laid eyes on Isaora’s new MOVEBETTER collection, I thought I was the best at moving. But, as it turns out, I was highly mistaken. See, I didn’t have breathable, double-knit bonded neoprene sweats, or technical jersey mesh tees with wicking properties. Shit, I didn’t even have luxe terry knits made with fabric from Read more
Have you guys seen Hender Scheme’s raw leather reinterpretations of the Air Force 1, Margiela German Trainers, and Vans Authentics? They’re beautiful, but totally unaffordable, which is why I’ve decided to buy one of these $40 Leather Trays from Archival Clothing instead. Made in collaboration with Minnesota’s Hollows Leather, the handcrafted trays will suavely hold Read more
Have you guys seen the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie? It’s actually pretty dope. You know I’ve always wanted to be a Ninja Turtle, but I lack a couple of the main attributes. However, with this Light Shell Parka from Battenwear, I could be the American-made, snap-buttoned, floral-laden chambray shelled one named Caravaggio.
