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
What’s so good about Good Candle? Well, they handcraft all of their candles in Brooklyn using American grown soy wax and high quality fragrance and essential oils. They offer a wide assortment of scents, all of which are pretty great. And, they want to award one lucky well spent reader with not one, not two, Read more
We always joke about how many bomber jackets I write about on Well-Spent, but the truth is those aren’t even my favorite articles of clothing. That’s right, motherfuckers! Crewnecks and pullovers make me even more randy, and these Snow Peak Wool Knit Pullovers are straight sartorial Viagra. Made in Japan, they’ve got contrast stitching, elbows Read more
In the immortal words of John Wayne, “giddy up motherfuckers.” Okay, I don’t think he actually said that, but he might if he saw these new Calfskin Bit Loafers from Oak Street Bootmakers (and if he wasn’t dead). Hand-stitched in Maine, the slip-ons have a Horween calfskin leather upper, calfskin lining, leather sole with a Read more
I used to want to be an astronaut, but I don’t really like math, or physics, or any other science-y junk, so I decided to pursue a different career instead. However, now that ISAORA has dropped these Insulated Tech Oxfords, well, I still don’t want to be an astronaut, but I can feel like one Read more
