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.

Everlane Chino

Read More

Everylane is interesting in that as a company, they are trying to be completely transparent. A good example of that is their chino. They openly list that the pant is made in China and even provide photos of the factory. On top of that, they list both their cost ($31.33) and their retail price ($68).

GOAT

I have an obsession with shoes… Jordan 1s and a variety of Vans to be exact… And if you are at all like me, you need to check out GOAT. You can see the website here, but it’s the mobile APP that really shines.

“Smartish” sunglasses that double as ear pods of sorts. Apparently, they sound fantastic.
