Face facts, slim sweatpants are the new selvedge denim. Omnipresent yet continuing to be compelling, the updated tapered leg and cuffed hem are keeping sweatpants in the limelight for the foreseeable future. So if you’ve not opted in up to this point, now’s officially the time. And while I’m not suggesting you should wear them to your year-end review, every man has a time in his week where a good pair of sweatpants make the consummate companion. Take a look at the Assemblage below and click out on the titles for further details and purchase info.
The Bros Corsillo just put a sewing machine on your Christmas list with their new fabric store, featuring all your favorite archived fabrics. Ever wanted a pair of modified herringbone underwear but tired of waiting on them to show up at Hickorees? Donzo. How about a geometric flower print mock turtleneck? Bam, done. Just keep in mind you can’t sew for shit and the last time you tried you spent 45 minutes just threading the needle. Maybe just order a bunch of the melton wool double-sided camouflage and just straight up use it as an awesome blanket.
Head over to The Hill-Side Fabric Store to scout the inventory.
Guys, these are the grizzliest shoes currently known to man. Italian Cortina lug sole, hand stitched, Horween leather and mothafuckin’ beaver tongue. Beav tongue, guys. I’ll be the first to own up to the fact that there is no way I could ever pull these off. I was gonna write about all the new Blue Blue Japan outerwear over at Unionmade but I click on “view 96 per page” and all of a sudden these sons-a-bitches blow up my Macbook and mind.
And don’t do the whole, “I don’t know, is it real beaver?” bullshit. Beavers are not your friends. If they could take all the wood from your home and leave you naked and alone, waiting for a cold death, they would. Beavers are ruthless beasts. Don’t defend them my refusing to wear their carcass to titivate your footwear.
If you’ve got the balls, they’re at Unionmade.
*Editor’s note: Beavers may or may not be evil creatures who ultimately want to murder your family.
Always a sucker for pretty much any Alden in Natural CXL and these Hanover Bal Oxford are no different. They sort of look like grandpa shoes but that doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. Grandpa’s get to be generally crotchety about all things, including loud neighbors and today’s youth, in which I empathize. They also gather to eat at breakfast buffets and go to bed early; both big wins. And they don’t have to put up with people’s shit since they can just act like they can’t hear what you’re saying or just play the “I’m older and wiser, so shut the fuck up,” card. Prostate problems aside, being a Grandpa sounds awesome.

The Collective Quarterly is another exceptional magazine that integrates a passion for design and a love for travel. But it’s also an exceptional magazine that integrates design and travel while uniqely incorporating designers and artists into the process. Essentially, the makers participate on the expedition and have their creation process documented. Each magazine then showcases the story behind all the details that go into producing product, from letting the locations inspire all the way to offering the products that were created on the journey.
The issue I destination is Livingston, Montana and titled, Absaroka after the northern edge of the mountain range that lies just along side Livingston. I can’t stop watching the video above, directed and edited by Duncan Wolfe featuring Jon Levitt’s poem, Horse Bones, being read by the author. Check out the magazine and wares at their shop after you’re done playing the video again and again and again.
Time to talk blankets again my dudes. In the wintery months you’ll get far more use out of a badass blanket than you would any shirt you own. Furthermore, there are times in a man’s life (hiking, picnic with the lady, football game, just generally being cold since you’re cheap as hell with turning on the heat, etc.) that you will need to break out a blanket. Why not have a first-class throw to call into duty when that time comes? This Chief Joseph pattern from Pendleton has both the heft and the history to be a worthy choice.
My man Chief Joseph was the Northwest’s Native American great Nez Perce leader. This blanket celebrates his memory and is one of the oldest blankets produced by Pendleton Woolen Mills. If I was ever celebrated with a blanket, I’d hope it’d be with woven jacquard that is reversible like this Chief Joseph action. My grandma made me a blanket once that had birds all over it. I mean, the birds were cool and all but it was too short to really cover both your chest and feet at the same time and it always smelled kind of funny. Small, smelly ass blankets are worthless. Sorry, grandma.
More details on the Chief Joseph Blanket, which is a sizable, 64″x “80 at Stag. I can’t confirm it’s odor.
I don’t know about you but I like saying the word “tartan.” Go ahead, say it with me, tarrthun. Feels good, doesn’t it? It’s kind of like when you can actually pronounce a cool sounding French word correctly and you try to find ways to work it into conversation but end up forcing it and coming off as a huge dick. C’est la vie. But don’t let that stop you from checking out Uni-made’s new collection featuring the winter weather constant, featuring Gitman Vintage, Golden Bear, Begg and a few others.
