TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph

TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph
One look at the TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph and it's easy to tell this watch is going to be pricey. TAG Heuer has introduced the first ever column wheel integrated mechanical chronograph displaying the 1/100th of a second with a striking central hand allowing for easy reading. To me that just sounds expensive.

H?Katsukawa, Tokyo Silkprint Collection

Luxury shoes always fall on the side of "buy," but the shopping list would get too lengthy, too fast if we really planned on getting every single pair we saw. However, the H?Katsukawa Tokyo Silkprint Collection might be something that you actually want to track down, budget for, beg for, whatever suits your fancy. Certainly for the dapper man, the Tokyo Silkprint Collection has derbys and...

Acronym iPad Bag

acronym_ipad_bag_01
Acronym's iPad Bag costs basically as much as an iPad, and when I first saw it, I thought that maybe you got the iPad, and the bag came for free. Wrong, but that could be a cool partnership. The Acronoym Circdiscover iPad Bag has a swivel design that's so ingenious. You'll want this if you love your iPad, without a doubt, using it while you're standing on the street corner, in line, or...

Clarks Original Desert Boots in Slate Blue

ronnie_fieg_slate_blue_2011_01
Ronnie Fieg's Clarks Originals Desert Boots are great, aren't they? I can't get enough of Clarks--like a lot of people out there, to be honest--and the slate blue ones are a good choice when it comes to bridging the gap between blacks/greys and colors for shoes. Matching slate blue laces are the finishing touch here, leaving these both denim-friendly and a pal to well-worn casual pieces. The...

The Japan Hope Polo Shirt
Ralph Lauren has joined the relief effort in Japan by selling special edition “Japan Hope” polo shirts. Polo Ralph Lauren linked up with the United Way, with 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the limited edition polo shirts donated to the humanitarian effort through the Central Community Chest of Japan, a part of the United Way worldwide network.

The Orvis Pineapple Pants

The Orvis Pineapple Pants
At first glance I was not loving the Pineapple Pants from Orvis. I've dabbled with sharks and lobsters on my pants, but no fruit to this point. But it wasn't long before I was envisioning myself in the pants, accompanied by a crisp, white t-shirt and flip-flops. At a beach bar somewhere, of course. Sure, you have an easy conversion starter with the pineapple-and-leaves print covering your...

Schön Spread Styled by Ioannis Dimitrousis

Posted by

schon_sailor_editorial_01-horz
If you want an easy way to punch up a spring outfit, go for stripes. They can be navy-and-white on a striped jersey shirt; they can be thicker and across a blazer body; they can be on an accessory of choice, like a cocked hat or a pair of deck shoes. While tight-to-the-body picks from Jean Paul Gaultier were the looks of choice featured in Schön, you don't need to shrink-wrap yourself in a pair...

Red Wing Chukkas

red_wing_chukka_boots_03
Give me chukkas, year-round. For all the pseudo "outdoorsy" pieces I see on the websites I visit, there are some items that I can imagine actually wearing to do stuff. I have a hunting-trapping-fishing side of the family that rarely puts their seal of approval on things, but I know that they'd like the clean lines of these Red Wing chukkas in warm leather and leather laces. In fact, these could...

The Talladega Polo By Billy Reid
Maybe you're lucky enough to be heading down to Florence, Alabama the first weekend in June for a party known as The Shindig; for the past two years, Billy Reid (the guy and his company) throws this weekend-long bash for friends and family that's filled with live music, good food, boating and booze. If you're not on the coveted guest list and feel like crashing, well,...

Boris Bidjan Boots, New Origin of Lights Shades

boris_bidjan_boots_01-horz
Remember when the Origins of Lights sunglasses were sold out all over, and I managed to finally hunt them down? Now Oki-Ni has the Chronicles of Never sunglasses in the tortoiseshell frames that were pretty hard to locate before, plus an excellent pair of boots from Boris Bidjan to add to the mix. Neither are cheap, but both I covet immensely. Quality is king; you'll have to be ready to pay for...

Benjamin Eidem By Weston Wells
Summer inspiration doesn't get much better than this. I had been having trouble sourcing relatable spreads in my budget: Too many colors, too many untranslatable silhouettes and fabrics, too many fine pieces that could't be sourced. It's exciting, but it's hard when you need to shop fast. Benjamin Eidem got styled up by Albert Torres and photographed by Weston Wells for a collection of shots...

quamta_FW_2011_01
QUAMTA's going to offer some pieces this fall that will suit a select number of leather lovers. Their looks aren't for everybody, but the nifty pouches and zipped holders could help you stay more organized. Billfolds, wallets, and coin pouches are all represented in the QUAMTA collection. Exotic leathers are exactly what you'd expect from a South Africa-based label, and they don't disappoint:...

Jil Sander Memphis 999 Derby Shoes

jil_sander_memphis_999_01-horz
On the right snappy dresser, these pink-soled shoes could be out of this world. Jil Sander's bright Memphis 999 shoes are pictured here in black and vivid pink, admittedly not everyone's go-to colorway, but still a pick that isn't without merit. Think pop art, avant garde, fresh designers, street art, London, funky suits, and conversation-worthy hats, and your mind will start whirling with...

Pen Magazine's Oskar Tranum Spread

Posted by

Pen_Mag_Oskar_01-horz
I'm getting a slight David Bowie vibe here from this spread in Pen magazine with Oskar Tranum. I love unisex and androgynous looks, and this has its moments of gender-bending, with the cheekbones, high color (after the jump), and slim-cut suits. There's a dandy vibe, with a certain Asian aesthetic to the garments' drape. Deeply pleated pants with room to spare look elegant with...

New at Oak: Antoine & Stanley Braided Shoes

Posted by

Antoine_Stanley_Braided_02
Oak just released a couple breezier shoe styles, and these ones are by far the most agreeable of the newly-dropped options. Oak's selections are a little mandal-y, a little oxford-y, including a pair with a buckled heel strap and an open design. Oak's shoes are hit-or-miss this time around, but the Antoine & Stanley Black Calvin Braided Shoes are winners. Highly glossy and textured, these shoes...

Generic Surplus Spring "Dury" Shoes

generic_surplus_white_Shoes
Could you pull these off? They're a challenging summer shoe style, but the pre-Memorial Day and post-spring span always leaves me wishing and wanting more light colors in my collection. These Generic Surplus "Dury" shoes are so dapper that they're worth the plunge, although matching gets decidedly trickier. Generic Surplus's shoes are fashioned from fine, sleek canvas with a leather sole, and...

Tom Ford Bath Soap

Tom Ford Bath Soap
It's almost never that we'd feature a bar of soap here. But when the bar of soap in question is from style master Tom Ford, well, attention must be paid. You're probably just fine with the three-pack of Zest you have now, but it's perfectly normal to wonder how you might smell and how you might feel after a long, hot shower with the Tom Ford designer bar soap.

+Beryll Adam Bag

+Beryll-Adambag
This padded leather case from +Beryll has me captivated--that's some great sheen on the "metal" version. Also available in black, the Adam bag is intended for the iPad or a laptop, with dimensions of 15.75" x 12". Handcrafted in Los Angeles by "good people"--Beryll's little tag line--the bag features an original edge on the flap that gives it an artistic, creative feel. It's not just the shape...
