The Howler Brothers are known for over-the-top quality at a decent price. I’ve got one of their shirts and the reputation is earned. Right now, you can get a pretty damned good deal on their Sunset Scout.

The Redwing 1178

Read More

This is the best work boot ever made. That statement comes from years of experience… I bought my first pair at 16, resoled them three times and didn’t buy my next pair until almost 20 years later.

A Proper Aloha Shirt

Read More

Best Made released these Aloha shirts to start the summer at $250. Far too rich for my blood. But now, they are on sale for $150. So tempting…

The best shop pant in the world. Made in the USA. And almost $200… But worth every penny to the right guy.

DSPTCH V-Buckle Belt

Read More

DSPTCH sent over one of these belts for me to play with. I’ve used it for a solid week now and I like it quite a bit. Essentially, it has all of the functionality and burliness of a “tactical” belt without making you look like Rambo or some shit like that.

Pros:
1. Made like a brick shit house.
2. Light.
3. Subtle aesthetics
4. Set and forget length with a buckle that works gloriously
5. You can add all sorts of modular options.

Cons:
1. I honestly can’t think of one… Hell, it’s even priced well.

Space Inspired

Read More

I’m a space nerd… and a closeted sneaker head with a Jordan 1 collection that embarrasses me if I think about it too long. Even so, I’m totally digging the latest trend of mashing sneakers with NASA inspired color ways. It started with Vans, moved on to PG3 Nikes, and now Jumpman is in the game.

I’m too old to pull this shit off, but damn if I don’t enjoy looking at it.
