Look, this isn’t Hodinkee or anything, so I’m not going to be able to walk you through the ins and outs of these new Filson watches. All I can say is they look pretty dope and if you’re looking to spend under a grand on a watch, these could be in your wheelhouse. So basically, if you’re a Filson fan and want your wrist to match up with your tan briefcase, then good news! If not, that’s cool. Just don’t buy the Apple watch. It looks like shit.
“Filson chose Shinola to make our watches because where things are built matters. Where we work defines what we make, and what we make is better for it. Our place in the Pacific Northwest inspires the best in us and our environment, like our culture, demands superior products. Shinola shares the same bond with Detroit—no other town knows more about building machines. Only Shinola can build American watches that deliver on our uncompromising standards.”
Presale is on at Filson.
We can all learn a thing or two from the now four time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady. Say what you will about his often varying hair styles or supposedly deflated footballs, but when it comes to clothing, time and time again Tom Brady is the best dressed man in all of football.
The guy rocks the suit and tie on the plane while other players are in sweats (as seen above). Simply put, Brady dresses like a man. And whether you are a Colts, Packers, Giants or Seahawks fan, you have to respect that.
So what can we learn from Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr.? Regardless of your profession, a coat and tie classes up both you and your vocation. You might not always look the best on the field but you can still look the best off the field. Don’t live off past success. When you stay hungry, you get fed.
The only thing I like more than crepe soles on a chukka is when they’re unlined. Couple those features with the olive backstay and you’ve got yourself a winner with these Quoddy Wabanaki. Double bonus that they’re in Tobacco and/or Navy Chamois. Luxe chukkas made from a goat-antelope species native to mountains in Europe trump pretty much anything else you can wear on your feet.

No better way to give winter weather the bird than getting full blown into spring shirting in the midst of a blizzard. Keep warm thoughts going by imagining yourself in GV’s Indigo Bandana Print Shirt. That’s right, just ponder a warm breeze and you’re having cocktails riding that made in the good ol’ USA, lightweight and slim fitting with a button-down collar and rounded hem vibe.
Shit man, don’t think all that long, that warm feeling may be hypothermia setting in!

White Mountaineering’s Yosuke Aizawa just locked arms with Barbour to give you some radical water camo that’s straight up Melvillian. Navy and literally wavy, you could get all of these, wear them all at the same time and legally change your name to Moby Dick. Or buy the jacket and have all your friend’s call you Ishmael when you wear it. Or you could get the backpack and a small ass dog you carry around in it, named Ahab. Or just the t-shirt and shorts and change your Twitter handle to Queeque. Or don’t buy anything and just go eat a can of tuna, you cheap bastard.
