U-made just dropped their deepest collection of GV yet. Better still, this collab includes some indomitable suits, jackets, and knit ties and for the sartorially adventurous, a kimono fabric cummerbund set. If you happen to be getting married this summer, surprise your bride to be and break this bad boy out on your wedding day to set the precedent for all the future occasions you will make ill-considered attire choices of which she disapproves.

Father’s Day Gift Guide | Assemblage

June 7, 2015

I know, I know, another Father’s Day Gift Guide posted out there in the void of nothingness that is the internet. Don’t think the irony is lost on me that you good folks reading are the one’s hoping to receive the type of items below but in all likelihood your wives and children aren’t avid readers and are probably going to get you an electric razor or a pair of boxer shorts this year. I can’t change that, but do yourself a solid and nab something for yourself this year. Maybe something in the Assemblage below will pique your interest. If fatherhood for you is anything like it is for me, you deserve it. Click out on the titles for price and purchase info.

New Balance M998CSB

June 4, 2015

1 2 3 4

Like any red-blooded American, I love the 998’s. I don’t really know if it’s the overall comfort as an actual shoe (imagine that) or the aesthetic that merges suede, plastic and mesh in some haphazard way that looks a touch odd yet lends itself for contrasting colors and materials that all somehow integrate beautifully. Throw them at me in a new coloration featuring reds and blues and label said coloration as a “special edition,” namely part of the “Connoisseur Summer” pack, and I’m sold.

Bather Trunk Co.

If you are getting ready to hit to beach or post up poolside this summer, swimwear is a current need. But indeed, swim shorts can be a fickle thing. Depending on how often you attend the gym and/or avoid the drive-thru, certain suits are off limits. The ubiquitous board shorts typically fit well around the waist, but make most men look 10 years old and 4 feet tall.

The other options are the elastic waist band trunks. Lengthwise, they foot the bill fine and the elastic waist may keep your shorts up when you’re being tossed around by the waves or jumping off the high dive but for the dadbod challenged, they hug pretty tight and make a man’s midsection bear a resemblance to a trussed pig.

It can be a tall task finding a well fitting, well made pair of trunks that combine the board short waist with a more suitable inseam. This season, I’m giving Bather’s Surf Trunks a go. Made in Canada with a double lined quick drying nylon and a spot on 6.5 inch inseam, they’ve found the golden ratio for swimwear.

If you’re interested, hit up Bather for price and purchase info.

Washed Denim | Assemblage

May 13, 2015

This time of year, a man needs a washed pair of jeans. But if you haven’t put in the work of wearing and washing your raw denim from years past, you might still be in the beginning stages of your denim metamorphosis. In that case, getting your legs in light wash denim is a good option on a hot day when rigid and raw jeans should remain in the closet. And while I’m not a huge supporter of utterly destroyed denim,¹ there is nothing wrong with letting a brand age your denim before purchase² to give you a head start on the break in process that you’d have had to suffer through seasons of raw wear to obtain.

Take a look at the Assemblage below of 20 different pairs from some of the best in the denim business in every washed color of the denim spectrum to find a pair you can call your own. Click out on the titles for price and purchase info.

¹ Especially a pair you’ve not spent the time destroying yourself.

² As long as you stay away from the acid wash.

Warby Parker | Luminary Collection

April 22, 2015

warby_parker_abbott_optical_heritage_bronze_frontwarby_parker_abbott_optical_jet_silver_front warby_parker_abbott_sun_heritage_bronze_front warby_parker_abbott_sun_jet_silver_front ProductImageStyleGuide_v2 ProductImageStyleGuide_v2 ProductImageStyleGuide_v2 ProductImageStyleGuide_v2 ProductImageStyleGuide_v2 ProductImageStyleGuide_v2 ProductImageStyleGuide_v2 ProductImageStyleGuide_v2Warby Parker just launched their new Luminary Collection with each pair constructed from Japanese titanium. I don’t know a good deal anything about Japanese titanium but I’m pretty sure it ranks just below adamantium and mithril on the all-time awesome metal list. Couple that with the five new styles which are both minimal and classic with the new colors (Heritage Bronze, Antique Gold, Brushed Navy in addition to the Jet Silver) along with WP’s affordable/ethical approach to eyewear and I think I just found my new pair of glasses.

Sid Mashburn | Knit Tie

April 13, 2015

B D I M N S SS

Just so you know, Sid’s got pretty much every color of knit tie you can possibly imagine and they’re the perfect width of “2.125 and they’re made in Italy and they’ll only set you back $75 and I know $75 is not necessarily a small amount of money and I shouldn’t just throw that around like it’s some amazing deal and the overuse of “and” is just my laziness and I’ve also not shaved in a week due to said laziness and spring really isn’t the traditional time to be growing back out a beard and I don’t really care because shaving is a pain in the ass and I just wanted you to know about these knit ties because I care that damn much about you and your neckwear being on point.

More colors and info at Sid Mashburn.
