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]

Let’s Hear It For Science

Recently, clothiers have started carrying seersucker in modern slimmer cuts, but Betabrand has upped the ante with the help of science.

Even though seersucker is light and breathable, traditionally the ridges run up and down, which directs heat up your pant legs to the rest of your body. Not good. By changing the direction of the fabric to run horizontally on these Blue Seersucker Pants, you have not only a modern [... more]

My Kind of Khakis

I’m absolutely not a khakis type of guy, but every now and again I need to mix up the regular denim rotation. I like my clothing to have more of an industrial edge, and the weight and cut of Dockers Alpha Khakis fit this requirement to a T. It has the sturdiness of denim but the look of some nicer pants, and it comes in a lot of interesting colors beyond your basic tan pants. I chose a bronze color for my first pair and my next [... more]

Nautically Inspired

The pelican hook (named for it’s beak-like shape) was developed to give sailors a way to securely fasten lines while still allowing for quick detachment should the need arise. I think this bit of maritime engineering works equally well on a strip of leather that fastens up your pants. The burnished brass hook is paired with quality full-grain leather, giving the belt a worn, vintage feel. The handsome details of this belt will elevate your dark jeans and khakis alike. Featured belt available from Ball and Buck. [... more]
