I wrote a post about the history of the striped shirt for Kaufmann Mercantile this month, and if I wasn’t into stripes before, I’m officially addicted now. This is one of the images that accompanied the post, and it features Lisa Przystup of James’s Daughter Flowers wearing a striped shirt from Armor Lux.
Everyone, meet Armitage & McMillan, a new store owned by the former Operations Manager of Unis New York, and the former Vintage and Antiques Buyer for The Brooklyn Circus. Not only does A&Mc offer an excellent assortment of quality men’s goods from an equally excellent assortment of quality men’s brands (The Hill-Side, Winter Session, Save Read more
You guys don’t know this, but Brad censors me, like, a shoot-ton. If you got the raw, uncut Nick, you’d be getting something a lot like these Beautiful Fül BF Raw Hem Sweatshirts. Made in LA, the heavy cotton pullovers have a ribbed neck and cuffs for your pleasure, and a raw hem that adds Read more
A little insight into my racial ambiguity: my grandfather is Scottish. That’s right, I have Scot’s blood. I’ve even participated in the Scottish Games, bitches. So you can bet your sweet Lorna Doone that your boy loves him some Blackwatch. Mix that beautiful pattern with a bomber-style jacket, like this Broom Baseball Jacket from Common Read more
I’m not even going to pretend like I’m a scarf guy. But I’m still intrigued by these Karu-Ori Scarves from Kiriko. Artisan-made in Japan, the scarves are woven on generations old wooden looms using the Kasuri technique, which gives the intricate patterns a slightly blurred effect.
Well here’s a fine how do you do (that’s an expression people still use, right?). These new Portugese-made Wool Civilian Blazers and Trousers from Apolis are only $486 for the pair. That’s less than $500 for a European-made, winter-weight, unstructured, slim-fit suit.
Though it’s rarely seen, your wallet plays an important role in your life. And since my current wallet looks like an old dog turd, I’ve decided to trade it in for this California-made, Horween leather Vernon Wallet from Headlands Handmade. Not only will it hold all my dolla dolla bills y’all, it’ll also gain a Read more
Holy shit you guys, I picked up two of these Merino Crew Slim Fit Jumpers from Charles Tyrwhitt a few weeks back, and I can honestly say it was one of the best purchases I’ve made all year. 100% superfine merino wool (thin enough for under a blazer), great slim fit, made in Italy, and Read more
These US-made Freeman Seattle x Crescent Down Works Vests are like plush little time machines. Everything from the design, to the materials, to the colorways, to the factory they were made in hasn’t changed in over 40 years. So basically they’re like a trip back to when your parents were still cool.
At only $56 a pop, these LA-made Sunset Joggers from Rustic Dime pretty much sell themselves, so, yeah, not a whole lot for me to do here. I guess I could also mention that they come in both 100% cotton twill and ripstop, and that there are over a dozen colors to choose from, but Read more
