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.

Despite being designed and manufactured in Woodstock, NY these Codura nylon Ohayo bags from PMW MFG are about us un-Woodstock as it gets.

Now under Japanese ownership, the label’s legacy lives on with these incredibly accurate reproductions of work shirts from Read more
Don’t let the name of these Japanese-made, heavy cotton twill Tight Fit Chinos from Studio D’Artisan scare you.

These US-made, 6 oz. Cover Cloth Explorer Jackets from Filson have an “Action back for freedom of movement,” which makes them a great subject for our first post after the holiday hiatus, since we’re officially back in action. Woof. It’s gonna be a long 2015.
Here at Well Spent, we don’t just write about responsibly-made men’s clothes and accessories, we buy them too (or we’re gifted them). So, Nick and I decided to close out the year than by counting down our top 5 gets of 2014. But before we do, I just wanted to thank everyone for reading, commenting, Read more
