Need Supply’s got that spring sale up and running and you work hard for your loot or not; you might actually just be a big leech on your parents who are just fucking trying to save for retirement but have to keep working to support your layabout lifestyle and want nothing more than for you to just get a job anywhere and move your ass out so they can finally move forward with their lives but feel too responsible to force you to leave so they continue to enable your laggard behavior but secretly lay in bed at night and talk about where they went wrong and are guilt-ridden for regretting your birth. Either way, take a look at some of the best gets below and save 20% with code SELECT20 at Need Supply.
Warby 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.

Spring is here, but fuck it man, you know you still want to wear black. I mean, you’re gonna probably perspire a lot but that doesn’t necessarily have to be a terrible thing unless you sweat like my friend Teddy, who straight up pits out through all his shirts regardless of the weather and reeks like onions and rotten eggs. He swears he never eats onions or eggs and I believe him as I’m pretty sure that kind of odor only comes from some kind of voodoo curse.

You might be wondering if these sneakers are some variant design of Yohji Yamamoto or maybe closer to a pair of Skechers Shape-ups. And while that is indeed a just conundrum, remember that the thin line between glorious and hideous often has to be blurred when securing sui generis shoes. And just think of how fun it will be to correct anyone who mistakes them for kicks Joe Montana peddles by telling them you paid $325 for them. Well, $325 plus shipping.

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.

Rogue Territory just released their second batch of spring attire and leading the way is the 11oz sanforized ecru Japanese red-line selvedge denim from Nihon Menpu Mills. Personally, I think you should buy both the jacket and the trousers and wear them together like a denim loving Tom Wolfe.
From RT, “Ecru refers to the natural looking color you get from the unbleached unadulterated raw cotton fibers that are spun together to make the yarn. These fibers still maintain bits of the cotton husks that are usually sifted out before spinning. This denim is a 2×1 weave construction instead of the traditional 3×1 weave construction that you’ll find with most denim. There’s 2 great characteristics that you’ll find with this 2×1 denim. The first is the light weight which is perfect for warmer weather. A 2×1 weave uses 1 less yarn in the warp yarn, which lends to the lighter weight feel and shorter break-in. The second is the unique look of a less defined directional twill pattern due to the 2×1 construction. Additionally, this denim has a great vertical slub texture which will only become more apparent with wear. It’s these characteristics that make this denim so special.”
