Guys, if you’re not into the ‘Putty’ coloration, then shame. I really want to tell you more about the many glories of white on white on white but I just got free HBO for three months and am straight up stuck watching movies I wasn’t really interested in enough to see in theaters, but am just interested enough in to distract me from doing anything with my life at home. Take The Wolverine, for instance. No, not Wolverine, the second one, in which they just added the ‘The’ on the front to suggest part II. Now, I’m not really sure what the fuck’s happening, as I’m catching it about 1/2 way through, but it seems that Logan (aka, Wolverine, from Wolverine and The Wolverine) is making his way through Japan without his healing powers. I keep waiting for him to hit up some cool menswear shops but instead he just keeps slashing through people and falling in love. Maybe the BlueRay has some outtakes of him going into Nakameguro or Minotaur but free HBO doesn’t include outtakes.
You’re all on your own researching the highlights of the Carhartt x Slam Jam Collection over at End.
For all you gents looking to save some dinero, your paper will go a long way at the Toddy S. winter sale. I mean, shit’s not cheap, cheap but it’s not like they marked everything down 7% and are calling it a sale. How big of a sale is it? Fuck man, don’t make me do math, just go check it out for yourself. Or don’t; no pressure. TS isn’t that needy ass Kickstarter your buddy is trying to get off the ground that you end up funding because you feel a little guilty. Todd’s gonna be alright with or without you or me.
Boots are pretty straightforward, so no need for elaborate introductions here. Dress them up, down or somewhere in-between; boots are all-around footwear, all winter long.

I’m a straight sucker for multicolored blues + patchwork + oddly placed pockets. Blue’s pretty much the only color in my wardrobe. When people ask me what my favorite color is, I always reply, “Marge Simpson hair blue,” ’cause fuck cerulean. I’ve never gone so far as to wear blue contacts, seeing how I have green eyes, but it would probably match up my whole personal brand. During undergrad, I once painted my room in the fraternity house a lighter color of blue and pretty much got made fun of everyday for it. I mean, it was called “Gunmetal Blue,” so you’d think it’d be fucking awesome but it somehow dried much lighter than I thought so it looked like I was preparing to keep an infant babe in there. I still get nervous anytime I have to go buy paint.

Oh, you don’t do berets? Tell that to Ernest Hemingway, haha. Oh you “can’t, ’cause he’s dead,” huh?
Fine. Well, then, try explaining yourself to Max Fischer. Oh, he’s a “fictional character,” huh?
Well, Che Guevara looks badass in a beret, right? Oh yeah, he was executed, right. But it probably didn’t have anything to do with him wearing a beret, right?
Wait, how about G.I. Joe’s Flint? Damn, that’s a cartoon character. But come on, he was pretty cool, some of the time. Oh, you liked Cobra better? Well, fuck, everyone did.
Wait, got it, Picasso! Wait, dead too, shit! Well, that guy sure could paint, right? Oh, you’re not into Cubism.
I don’t know why I even try with you.
Whatever, Engineered Garments French Twill Berets are at Context if you change your mind.
Don’t get stuck in thinking you can’t wear a denim jacket this time of year. Denim jackets come in all shapes, sizes and thickness and can be both fetching and functional, regardless of the forecast. On frigid days, use them to stave off the cold as a layer below a thicker coat. You’ll also get plenty of bang for your buck as spring shows itself and you still need some warmth without the bulk. Couple that with the wide range of denim jacket designs and you’ve got yourself one of the most versatile pieces of attire in your closet.
If you’re in the market for a denim jacket, take a look through the Assemblage below to find one you can call your own. Click out on the titles for price and purchase info.
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.
