Smile Wool | Indigo Work Jacket

March 4, 2015

I really need a natural dyed indigo work jacket. Although I always feel a healthy amount of guilt when buying a ‘work’ jacket that I never really end up doing any ‘work’ in. Maybe I’ll get this one by Smile Wool and go chop some wood or something. I guess I’d need to buy an ax and/or maul as well and then find some tree to hack down. I’m just gonna be pissed if I drop 320$ and some rogue branch rips a hole in my loopback cotton fabric that has been naturally indigo dyed for a nuanced, rich color.

Engineered Garments | Twill Overalls

Overall’s looking like they’re about to hit the scene and I, for one, am major afraid. Take these EG one’s, for instance. Shit’s not even got buckles up top, just holes to tie your straps through. You know you’re gonna need to double knot that strap or it’s gonna come untied throughout the day, giving you a Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes vibe you’ll pretty much want to avoid at all costs or your squad’s gonna start singing Waterfalls whenever they see you. But what’s a guy suppose to do when he’s gotta piss real bad and can’t get his straps un-knotted? Just make sure if you procure these that you grab a pack of Depends as well, as you wouldn’t want to piss through a $264 pair of overalls.

Carhartt x Slam Jam Collection

February 25, 2015

1 2 3 4 5

Guys, if you’re not into the ‘Putty’ coloration, then shame. I really want to tell you more about the many glories of white on white on white but I just got free HBO for three months and am straight up stuck watching movies I wasn’t really interested in enough to see in theaters, but am just interested enough in to distract me from doing anything with my life at home. Take The Wolverine, for instance. No, not Wolverine, the second one, in which they just added the ‘The’ on the front to suggest part II. Now, I’m not really sure what the fuck’s happening, as I’m catching it about 1/2 way through, but it seems that Logan (aka, Wolverine, from Wolverine and The Wolverine) is making his way through Japan without his healing powers. I keep waiting for him to hit up some cool menswear shops but instead he just keeps slashing through people and falling in love. Maybe the BlueRay has some outtakes of him going into Nakameguro or Minotaur but free HBO doesn’t include outtakes.

You’re all on your own researching the highlights of the Carhartt x Slam Jam Collection over at End.

For all you gents looking to save some dinero, your paper will go a long way at the Toddy S. winter sale. I mean, shit’s not cheap, cheap but it’s not like they marked everything down 7% and are calling it a sale. How big of a sale is it? Fuck man, don’t make me do math, just go check it out for yourself. Or don’t; no pressure. TS isn’t that needy ass Kickstarter your buddy is trying to get off the ground that you end up funding because you feel a little guilty. Todd’s gonna be alright with or without you or me.

Junya Watanabe MAN Collection

February 10, 2015

1 2 3 4 5 6

I’m a straight sucker for multicolored blues + patchwork + oddly placed pockets. Blue’s pretty much the only color in my wardrobe. When people ask me what my favorite color is, I always reply, “Marge Simpson hair blue,” ’cause fuck cerulean. I’ve never gone so far as to wear blue contacts, seeing how I have green eyes, but it would probably match up my whole personal brand. During undergrad, I once painted my room in the fraternity house a lighter color of blue and pretty much got made fun of everyday for it. I mean, it was called “Gunmetal Blue,” so you’d think it’d be fucking awesome but it somehow dried much lighter than I thought so it looked like I was preparing to keep an infant babe in there. I still get nervous anytime I have to go buy paint.
