It’s All in the Cuffs

Ever felt like you wear the same styles over and over again, yet you yearn for something that sets you apart from the everyday, mundane wardrobe? Finn Apparel has you covered (or is it cuffed?). Their classic vintage guy’s pants are perfect for everyday wear, but for days when you need a little something extra, just roll up the cuff to expose a one of a kind splash of color to be sure to get you noticed. The creators of Finn Apparel began brainstorming to design an awesome pair of [... more]

Look Good Working Hard

Okay so looking good probably isn’t your number one priority when you’re out working, but it doesn’t mean you can’t get functional work clothes that just happen to look really good together. We started with a sturdily weaved WearGuard work shirt that will protect you from whatever you run into on your workday. Pair it with some durable Mountain Khaki’s and some Red Wing work boots that are made to order from their US factory. Combine these staples with dripping sweat and a job well done and you’ll [... more]

Hardly a Wallet (And That’s the Way We Like It)

Like the movie industry, the fashion world can feel like a place full of watered-down remakes. But, on rare occasion – if you get the right mix of people and materials, maybe even a sprinkling of fresh ideas thrown in – the new version can end up better than the original. And that’s exactly what we think happened with this new approach to a sleek, durable, and simple aluminum wallet from Machine Era Co. There’s not much going on here, and that’s what we like. It’s just a high-grade aluminum shell with [... more]

Pry Open Awesome

We admit it: buying gifts for guys isn’t exactly easy. When women can rush out to the nearest boutique and come home with literal basketloads of gifts, we dudes find ourselves more often stuck with an ugly necktie. And that has to end, my friends. If you’re tired of finding the gifts you’ve given in Goodwill piles or crammed under the bed, then you should probably consider buying your next gift from Man Crates. They’re built with rough and rugged manliness practically bursting from the wooden crates they come in.   Man Crates each [... more]

How to be a Stylish Man

It may just be us, but some of the clothes we see on the runway these days seem to be nothing more than explosions of ridiculousness. And quite frankly, we would like to see more examples of classic style without all the hype. Mr. Porter is one of the most well-renowned resources for men’s style choices, which is why we think The Manual for a Stylish Life: Volume 2 is the style outlet for the modern man. The kind of guy who goes to work, and out [... more]

Your Keys, All Grown Up

We’ve seen it before. When it comes to something as simple as a set of keys, we often settle for the most convenient at the time. But after a certain age, generic carabiners with chipped paint and promotional bottle opener keychains not only scratch up the other things in your pocket, they make you look like a kid. Bottom line: a gaudy set of keys can really ruin a wardrobe.  Thankfully though, a sleek leather key ring like the ones we’ve featured here can add just the right amount [... more]

More Than Just Good Looks

Simply put, Sid Mashburn does it all. From tailored suits to pajamas, this Southern brand from Atlanta, Georgia is one you can’t overlook. Their mission is to be more than the place a man buys a great new sport shirt and pair of socks; they are here to help men reclaim a lost world style plus sophisticated service. “Our inspiration draws from Gordon Parks and Steve McQueen, from Charlie Feathers to Belle & Sebastian, from the 1971 BMW 3.0CS to the BMW 5 diesel station wagon — a fresh interpretation of [... more]

HUCKSTRAPS: More Bang for Your Belt

We got the chance to talk to Dustin Vann, a Southern entrepreneur that is bringing new life to fashion. One of problems Vann saw in the fashion industry was how boring belts were, so he hit the drawing board and came up with HUCKSTRAPS. “I started researching and kind of dreaming about, you know, if I could make a belt - what would the perfect belt for me be? So I started brainstorming different materials, different looks, but I knew we didn’t really need to reinvent the belt, cause [... more]

Nice Socks

The owners of Nice Laundry wanted high-quality socks at a low price, so they cut out the middleman and started making their own. Cuff tension, heel pocket depth, fine raw materials and a shrink-resistant final product are some of the things that they had in mind when they began designing, and the results feel as good as they sound. There are a few special things about this brand. First, it offers a recycling option for your old socks. You can send them in and they’ll salvage what they [... more]

Stand Out From the Pack

Guys don’t have nearly as many options as women when it comes to carrying their stuff around. There’s the business briefcase, the sporty backpack, the utilitarian messenger bag, and…that’s about it. The San Francisco-based company Everlane combines the function of a backpack with the utilitarian style of a messenger bag with its casual chic Twill Snap Backpack ($65). Relatively small in size, this backpack will hold all of your necessary day-to-day and travel needs without being bulky or cumbersome. As a brand, Everlane designs and produces its [... more]

Men Have Skin Too

Men often overlook their bodies’ largest organ, their skin, thinking it may seem feminine to take care of it with lotions, balms and creams. However, since you’re going to be stuck in your skin just as long as any lady is, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to start paying attention to it. Guys, let us introduce you to Ursa Major. The company’s line of skin care products, targeted specifically for men, provides a combination of all-natural ingredients coupled with a highly pleasurable experience for its users. [... more]

The Last Bag You’ll Ever Buy

You can count on using luggage for the rest of your life, so it makes sense to get bags that look timeless and will last forever. Emil Erwin, a Nashville, Tennessee-based leather and canvas goods company, patterns, cuts, sews, and assembles each bag by hand in its studio. The brand’s shoulder bags beautifully hold your laptop, lunch, work files, and whatever else you feel like putting in them. They’ll cause the grumpy old guy at the office to do a double take, but decades down the road [... more]

Keeping Up With The Hamiltons

A lot happened in Texas in 1883. The state hosted what some believe was the world’s very first rodeo; The University of Texas was founded; and the Hamilton family started making fine shirts for men. The company adopted the motto “quality above all” and has stood by that statement for more than a century. Unlike mass-produced products, each Hamilton Shirt begins with a roll of fabric pulled off the shelf of the brand’s single, pristine Texas workshop. The fabric is hand-cut and constructed from start to finish, [... more]

Wrist Luxury

Cufflinks are a status symbol, and the men’s fashion brand Alice Made This fits more luxury in each of their finely crafted pieces than seems possible. Alice Made This uses methods similar to those employed in making aerospace components, with giant machines etching away at rods of the highest quality metals, including stainless steel, brass, and copper, to produce these intricate accessories. The brand’s non-metal cufflinks are slowly and meticulously woven to ensure consistency and quality, resulting in beautiful, flowerlike knots that will subtly remind your friends [... more]

Hat Trick

A hat is like a moustache: If you notice it right away, it probably looks bad on you. It’s an accessory that some people pull off flawlessly, while others wish a strong gust of wind would blow it into a puddle so they would have a reason to get rid of it. The first step in the hunt for a good hat is finding the type that suits your head and style; we’ve picked a few to get you started. A baseball-inspired classic, the six-panel hat looks [... more]
