We’re all privy to General Knot doing it big with all things tie related but they’ve recently expanded into other accoutrements to supply your vintage fabric fix. You’ve gotta have some bravado to carry a floral folio but don’t sweat it as they’ve got straight indigo offerings if you’re lacking in the machismo depo.
My freshman roommate Lucas literally only wore Hawaiian floral print shirts and he’s the boldest dude I’ve ever met. This one kid took his parking spot right in front of him in the parking garage and he doubled back around after he found another spot and stole the guy’s license plate right off his car. He also was known for whittling giant dildos out of wood and then hiding them in friend’s houses for their parents to find. My man could straight up make an eerily authentic representation of a human man’s cock out of pine. Floral prints and making homemade wooden penises is undeniably only for the lionhearted.
Take a look at the sampling below and make your way over to General Knot for more details.

Thanksgiving is easily my favorite holiday. A relaxed day filled with family, food and football is my idea of the perfect day. However, my idea of the worst day is having to leave the comfort of my couch and be crammed in with crazies going Black Friday shopping. But if you’re like me, you plan on eating yourself into a coma on Thursday and pretty much using all weekend to digest in your expensive sweatpants rather than leaving your residence to fight the Black Friday fools.

Gitman Vintage has released their new custom shirt service, which is awesome on all levels. Their fabrics include an array of oxford, tartan, and chambray with unique patterns. From there they keep things simple and let you select the collar, sleeve, button-up or pop-over (yes, they have a pop-over option) and then neck and sleeve length. Done.
Too often the customized shirt experience can be all about gilding the lily and can easily lead a man to wrestling with a measuring tape or at worst, getting a product that doesn’t fit or feel all that custom. Thankfully GV is saving us from ourselves and offering the customization to the essentials and letting us trust GV’s classic design on the extensive options like placket, vents, back pleats and buttons.

We all know the higher the NB number the stronger the shoe. These 1500’s also have an M in front of them. That’s right, numbers and letters. Also of note, these are a triumvirate blend between Parisian-retailer Starcow and America’s New Balance made in England. That’s a lot of country collaboration.
From End, “Parisian-retailer Starcow have teamed up with Flimby’s finest New Balance to create a rendition of the ever-popular M1500 model. Comprising of two carefully considered colourways taking in hues of both grey and green, the M1500 is constructed in premium suede and classic mesh adding a unique yet timeless quality to the release. Focusing upon the trainer’s ‘Made in England’ provenance, the two neutral reworkings shot against the backdrop of the sportswear brand’s inner factory workings in Cumbria, UK, celebrating the meticulous process that goes into creating each piece of New Balance footwear.”
