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.

Wearables by BOSE

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

Champion Reverse Weave Sweatshirt

Read More

I’ve written in great length about how much I love the American Giant sweatshirt. Hell, everyone has… But I recently stumbled upon an alternative that is just as good, cheaper, and more readily available – the Champion Reverse Weave.

I liked it so much that I bought a shitload of them to sell on The Jalopy Journal garage sale page.

Vans Ultrarange

Read More

What’s weird about the Vans Ultrarange line is that they are crazy light, but really damned durable… I’ve got a solid year on a pair now and they still look pretty decent.

Native Color

Here’s the thing… I wear t-shirts every single damned day. And my favorite, the American Giant Premium, runs $38. I think I have five of them and I feel guilty about it. So I just don’t think I could spend $55 on a t-shirt and feel great about it – no matter how good the story is behind the company that is making it.

Native Color is an Austin, TX based company, makes their shit out of good wholesome stuff, and makes it all in the USA.

They aren’t made in the USA anymore, but they are still probably the best made winter shirt I know of…
