I like to think Deluxe named their Japanese-made “Clinton” Button Ups after our first black president, Bill Clinton. Like the shirts, he’s also a nice mid-weight, thanks to his love of jogging and Big Macs. Both Clintons are military-inspired, without having ever served. And, both Clintons are good at hiding things; the shirts have a Read more
Wow. This is embarrassing. I already used my “you could store food in those pockets” joke for the multi-pocketed Nemen jackets I wrote about this morning, so now I don’t know what to say about these multi-pocketed Mil Shirts from Engineered Garments. I mean, aside from the NYC-made shirts’ two gusseted chest pockets and additional Read more
While you may notice the dusty patina of the weather-resistant nylon shell (which is created through a meticulous 3-stage garment dying process), or the removable goose down hood liner, it definitely isn’t the first thing about these Italian-made Nemen Multipocket Smocks that catches the eye. Hell, the name points right to it: there are a Read more
I can’t think of anything clever to write about this Canadian-made Wings + Horns Indigo Field Jacket, but that’s because it’s one the most amazing field jackets I’ve ever seen. First off, you guys already know how I feel about indigo-dyed anything. It’s also got a quilted Primaloft lining for extra warmth.
There’s so much I want about these Japanese-made Ones Stroke Mild Man Shirts. I want that band collar, because regular button-down collars are boring. I want that frayed hem and those unfinished cuffs because they look bad-ass, and I like looking bad-ass.
Welcome to the Jungle Jacket, it’s a tailored thing. This Journal Standard / Hill-Side collab has everything you want, including a slim fit, four front flap pockets, and custom woven label so you know the names. With this jacket you will find, a way to fill your Japanese-made outerwear needs.
I admit it, sometimes my writing may seem a little out of left field. But there’s actually a method to my madness; it’s all about association. Example: this UK-made Tweed Overcoat from Harris Wharf is like a Teddy Ruxpin doll. Why? Because the 100% wool tweed outer and tartan plaid inner look all plush and Read more
It’s time for me to grow up. No more silly blog posts with childish dirty jokes in them. I need to start acting my age, and The Knottery’s AW14 collection is going to help me do it. Made in Brooklyn out of grown ass fabrics like silk, cashmere, and wool, the co.’s ties, double-sided scarves, Read more
Is it me, or does just seeing something with quilted stitching automatically make you feel all warm and cozy too? Like with these HeadPorter Plus Quilted Sweatshirts. Not only do the Japanese-made, poly-cotton blend sweats look like they could literally warm me like a bowl of chicken noodle soup, but their ribbed cuffs and hem, Read more
The other night I had a really surreal, yet vivid dream about this Patrik Ervell Field Coat. Ervell himself paid me a visit after many, many invites and I was all “Patrik, Patrik, Patrik. I’ve been waiting for you. Please, sit. Relax.” I then asked him if I could take the coat he was wearing, Read more
