Don’t Be a Hazard

No one gives you a jersey for golf, so you’re in charge of the image of your one-man team. We’ve seen that freedom get out of hand with clashing bright colors and players just trying to make a statement, so we toned it down to let our swing do the talking. But note: “Toned down” doesn’t have to mean boring. A flat cap from Tom Morris perfectly accents a simple striped polo and solid pants. Round out the look with a streamlined glove from G/FORE and some [... more]

Threading It Old School

Add some subtle texture and interesting history to your wardrobe with this fabric that has its roots in a barn on the Virginia countryside. The men that make this “modified herringbone” fabric came upon the textile design by accident one day when they were goofing off with the 100-year-old loom. After looking at what they thought was a mistake, they realized they liked it and The Hill-Side has made a whole collection out of the beautiful happenstance. Scarves and ties are available in the collection now, but [... more]

A Better Way to Wallet

Few men give serious consideration to the front-pocket wallet, but when the cards and receipts and all those Benjamins start stacking up, sitting down can be uncomfortable and cause you to be lopsided, which leads to back pain. The front-pocket wallet takes care of all of those problems by simplifying the piece and moving it to the front. While working to create the perfect billfold, leather craftsman Michael Stricklin from Opelika, Alabama, designed the Loyal Stricklin Front Pocket Wallet ($89) using tan Chromexcel horsehide, tan stitching, and [... more]

A Bona Fide Bag

Building up quality staples such as a great bag can help you turn a style into a lifestyle.
