(CAPSULE) // BRAND HIGHLIGHT: TIMBERLAND

Timberland-2

Probably one of the more surprising showings was from Timberland, yep, that Timberland. Looks like they’ve been changing their tune a bit with the entirely new workwear inspired line, Abington, and freshly revamped GT Scramble line up. Both are good moves for the brand, which is smartly seeking more traction with forward-dressing urbanites, and I … Continue reading

SPECIAL EDITION | FOR THE NEW PROFESSIONALS

Screen shot 2011-11-25 at 10.35.18 AM

I recently took a job with Svpply, a startup in NYC.  I’ve written about Svpply previously – it’s a fantastic company filled with fantastic people. Last week, one of our co-founders, Zach Klein, pointed me to this question on Quora: “What can a man wear in Silicon Valley business circles to be impeccably dressed with … Continue reading

VIDEO | GILTMANUAL MINUTE : PESKO VS. WOOSTER

Screen shot 2011-11-26 at 8.46.56 AM

This week’s GiltManual Minute brings us the thrill of a cheeky sartorial dual: menswear legend and street style icon Nick Wooster vs. GiltMan Style Director and street style ‘rival’, Josh Peskowitz.  Two men. Two arsenals of choice threads.  One steezy survivor. Well, kind of. In the end (spoil alert!) they shake hands and talk suits … Continue reading

IN CONTEXT | MARK MCNAIRY TWO TONE SADDLE SHOE IN NAVY

If Menswear had its own Chinese new year style calendar (now there’s an idea…), this would most definitely be The Year of the McNairy.  After garnering notoriety as the respected lead creative director of classic American label J.Press, the past couple of years have seen Mark McNairy collaborate with some of the most prominent brands … Continue reading

IN CONTEXT | MR. HARE MAILER LOAFER

You’ll notice that the image above contains ample negative space and one bombastic pair of shoes. Mind you, I know these aren’t for everyone and certainly intimidate most, but they also promise to be the crowning sartorial glory of any man’s shoe collection should he be ballsy enough to take the leap. These loafers just … Continue reading

IN CONTEXT | NIKE AIR ROYAL MID QS ‘WORKBOOT’ SNEAKER

The Nike Air Royal Mid comes in two colorways, black & wine each with leather uppers, white contrast stitching & white mid-soles. A perforated Swoosh marks them as Nikes. $150 at sneakerhead.com. Sure, this post is kind of apropos of nothing and yes, I am more than a bit behind the game on these considering … Continue reading

ASSORTED | BOOTS FIT FOR THE SNOWPOCALYPSE

Stockbrokers in the blizzard of 1888 Look out the window. Now down at your loafers. Now back at the six foot snow drifts. Now back at your sopping feet. Now up at this post. Sadly, none of these boots are on your feet but they probably should be, given the 5′ of snow that was … Continue reading

OBSESSED | ZURIICK NICO BOOT

I’ve been stalking these boots for about a month now so it’s absurd that I haven’t blogged about them yet. I first saw them online, oogled over them at Shoe Market in Williamsburg, and have steered many a gent in their direction. This boot embodies why I first admired Zuriick – a minimalist take on … Continue reading

MONITALY & YUKETEN F/W 2010

I first came across the Monitaly Riders Coat while devouring this quarters’ Men’s File, and have since seen it spread across every blog I know and respect.  And with good reason, these are probably some of the most distinctive pieces this season.  I love how they’ve spun traditional with bold rings of color.  It’s very post-apocalypic in a … Continue reading

VIDEO | VIBERG BOOT

I recently stumbled upon this video about the Viberg Boot company produced by Inventory Magazine’s “Inventory Films”. It is about a year old so I’m surprised I haven’t seen more coverage, but, as one would expect from Inventory, it is still a beautifully shot piece about a company with an authentic past.  Inventory’s description does … Continue reading
