If a man had to pick only one brand to wear on the daily, Taylor Stitch would be as wise of a choice as any of us could make. TS always seems to find the ever evasive sweet spot between fashion and function, repeatedly producing classic Americana garments with impeccable fit in their always available essential line and in their fund based workshop, where active projects are open to reserve for production at a pre-sale discount.
Currently open for funding is the Rover Jacket. Made from 6.25 oz. waxed cotton with a 10 oz.100% British cotton moleskin lining, this infinitely wearable jacket would be a consummate companion regardless of the weather.
Gentlemen, you now have permission to ditch your baggy Barbour and get with an updated fit. More details at Taylor Stitch.
These new boots from OSB are the tits. The black are Horween® Chromexcel® while the cognac are from Tannerie d’Annonay® French Calf leather. Those tanneries are the top tits of the tannery game. Minimal stitching, Goodyear Welted, low profile toe box, all tits. Oiled double leather waterlock soles, straight tits. Stacked leather heel with dovetail toplift, double dovetail tits. But the “Lakeshore” moniker reminds me of this mental asylum with the same moniker back in my hometown that was suppose to be haunted. Haunted shit is not the tits, guys.
Price and purchase on these definitely not haunted boots at OSB.
Really into this new Pronto from Greats, colorway suitably titled, “Beach,” as who doesn’t have awesome memories of the beach unless you got really traumatized at some point on spring break after drinking way too many faux Mai Tai’s, as Karl certainly didn’t know how the fuck to make a Mai Tai but called it so even though he replaced the Curaçao with OJ which didn’t taste half bad but also got pretty nasty when you guys ran out of OJ and he started replacing the OJ with V8 but you kept drinking them anyway, cause, “SPRING BREAK” and all but then you woke up having shit yourself under the boardwalk and now that Drifters song, Under the Boardwalk brings back recurrent and distressful memories.

Isn’t it super rad sweats are sticking around and you can now viably wear them pretty much anywhere and not be looked at like you’ve been recently laid off and are living in your parents
house basement and dating a girl named Melissa who brings you Chipotle and cigarettes on her lunch break but can’t leave without lecturing you on how she really wished you would get out of the house basement more and is worried that you might really be depressed and can’t break out of this cycle due to the inability to feel motivated to just apply for a new job coupled with how the joblessness makes you unmotivated and you’re all like, “Of course I’m depressed! I’m living in my parents house basement playing the GTA 4: Ballad of Gay Tony expansion pack my little brother downloaded on his PS3 he left here in 2009 over and over again just trying to avoid the further realization that my B.A. in Philosophy only qualifies me to run a podcast on how both The Right Hegelians and The Left Hegelians, aka Young Hegelians, both miss the mark on Hegelian philosophy and his work should best be understood as an expression of mysticism!”

Overtly washed denim jackets are basically hiring people to do the work for you. But come on, you do the same thing when you go to the butcher shop. Imagine for a second if you had to kill everything you were going to eat. Hell, the only wildlife I ever even see are squirrels and I’m not particularly fond of the idea of eating one, or killing one to then try and eat.
Anyway, this jacket from Neighborhood is washed as fuck and has a really long title, Cuff Trim Savage Stockman Denim Jacket, which can only mean that the good folks at Neighborhood think highly of it like rich people do when they name their kids really long names like Thurston Shepherd Howard Youngman IV or some shit. Also, if your name is Thurston Shepherd Howard Youngman IV, your name being referenced is merely coincidental. Also, also, if you name is Thurston Shepherd Howard Youngman IV, do you make your friends call you Thurst? Any Thurston’s out there, feel free to comment below.
