During a trip to Ireland, Rob packed all his personal items in a plastic grocery bag and upon unzipping at arrival all his clothes were covered with an odd shampoo/shaving cream mixture. I learned two lessons that day. #1. Carry on at all costs. #2. Get a damn good dopp kit.
Rob went on to simply tell everyone he didn’t really need underwear anyway and rocked a week + in Ireland commando. He also bought Guinness related attire that he pretty much wore the whole trip rather than find a way to launder his soiled clothing. I also learned a third lesson on that trip; don’t be friends with Rob.

FEIT footwear intrigues the hell out of me with the unique use of leather and their minimal aesthetic but I’m honestly a little afraid of the foot comfort factor making me regret dropping over a half K on shoes I’ll be happy to look at but unable to pound the pavement in without bloodying up my feet. Again, I have no clue how they fit or feel, (they could be like jamming your foot into an angel’s ass for all I know) but I’ve been burned by footwear too many times to not be a skeptic.
It probably all goes back to how in the 5th grade my Reebok Pumps that I dreamed would make a chubby kid who liked watching Batman the Animated Series instead of practicing his jump shot profoundly better at basketball when in actuality all my Reebok Pumps did was make my drunken dad really angry that my mom paid over 100$ for shoes and made it harder for me to move my fat little feet since they were heavy as army boots.
Also, I’m not certain, but I think “FEIT” is pronounced “feet” so annunciate at your own risk.
So, in summary, I don’t know anything about these shoes.

While I’m technically in the fan column of OCBD’s year round, the summer heat often keeps them hanging in my closet until mid-September. Thankfully, that time of the year has arrived and the OCBD is back on my back. If you’re looking to add an oxford or two to your own collection, give a look at the Assemblage below. And keep in mind that while there is nothing wrong with going for the classic colorations of white and/or blue, just don’t sleep on the many other options one has when owning an oxford.

Sure, you wear jeans, own a sawtooth shirt and even do the denim jacket, but if you’re any kind of indigo enthusiast, you’ve gotta be asking yourself, “How can I further integrate denim into my daily existence?” Denim boxer briefs? Unique, but wise to pass on the grounds of
possible likely crotch chafing. Denim socks? Interesting proposition but probably an outright painful experience. Denim umbrella? Not sure if it would techincally keep you dry. A raw denim towel? Might wipe the wet away but would leave you raw and blue. Denim backpack? We have a winner. Particularly this one from RGT and Archival made with 16.75oz Japanese selvedge slub denim with Horween leather accents and the heavy-weight waxed twill on the back to keep the indigo from turning every shirt you own blue.

Never not gonna love a shawl cardigan with a varying dark navy weave pattern. Look at this beauty from RRL. If you didn’t know, it could be brand new or 20 years old. And you will be thinking the same thing in another 20 years. Another bonus, it doesn’t have a ton of obnoxious buttons with anchors on them. Bonus #2, it’s 100% cotton, which is always a better choice than a heavy (and scratchy) wool version this time of year.
