Oliver Spencer Shirt From Monocle
Into Moncole we go, happily bypassing what are probably interesting articles on 'innovative marketing in the Swiss Alps,' 'Moscow architecture' and the 'Montreux Jazz festival' for the all-important Monocle Shop. Yet another fine collaboration with UK designer Oliver Spencer and Monocle has resulted in a stylish third shirt featuring a classic Oxford design with signature cuff and pocket...

Stussy x Ransom by Adidas Originals Plain CS

stussy_ransom_collab_01
Are these worthy of your wardrobe? I'm impressed. Ransom by Adidas Originals got together with Stussy to make the Plain CS Stussy shoes in royal blue, black, and tan. They don't have a lot of bells and whistles, but that's all right by me after seeing those odd backwards flipped-around shoes from Kazuki Kuraishi. These are much more pleasing to the eye, aren't they?

The Stolas Harbormaster Spinnaker
"Put on your sailin shoes," as the band Little Feat instructed us to do in their classic tune from '72. The nautical theme goes nicely with the new Harbormaster Spinnaker, which speaks to the (stylish) sailor in all of us. Part of the Stolas Harbormaster collection, the Spinnaker features a carbon fiber dial, teal blue colors on the bezel, numbers and orange lightning bolt...

Naked & Famous x Big John Jeans

naked_famous_big_john_01
Here's another set of premium denim for the ogling, this time in a collaboration that'll leave you hoping for a couple more collections of less limited-edition pieces (so you can stock up, naturally). Naked & Famous got together with Big John for a nice take on classic, stiff indigo without the distractions. Big John was the first premium denim brand in Japan and has been stocking closets for...

Outlier 60/30 Chinos

Outlier_pants_05
Outlier explains that their well-designed pants are made for "rain, grit, and motion of real life," and that seems believable enough if you take a peek at the cut and fabric used for these spring-perfect chinos. They're planned for the long haul with key loops and a stash pocket, but they also have more hidden features like a cotton/elastane blend for ease of movement, with some nylon popped in...

The Oliver Peoples Vintage Collection

The Oliver Peoples Vintage Collection
The classic, scholarly frames associated with the new Oliver Peoples Vintage collection are quite terrific. It was founder/creative director Larry Leight who decided to explore the archives of Oliver Peoples and rediscover these modern classics. Leight selected three, notable styles, and even called upon the original Japanese factory that first produced them to give the specs...

LAS Animal Rings at Oak

LAS_jewelry_hare_01
Oak NYC regularly stocks interesting men's jewelry and accessories, and I make it a point to explore their recent additions to the site each week. Their animal-inspired items are intriguing and have been on my radar since they first added unusual men's pieces from LAS. The Hare and Wolf Rings at Oak (wolf shown after the jump!) have a distinctive design aesthetic that puts them in the same...

The Wings + Horn Bathrobe

The Wings + Horn Bathrobe
There's a part of me that would have loved to have been a boxer. Having been punched once as a youngster and not liking it (at all), I knew my dreams of boxing stardom had to settle for repeat viewings of Rocky and Raging Bull. But these awesome, custom hoodie bathrobes from the Vancouver-based wings + horns have me ready for the ring!

Nautical Schmautical Collection 2011

nautical_schmautical_2011_01-horz01
Nautical Schmautical's 2011 collection is sparing and simple, evoking a quiet spirit of the past. A cocked navy cap might seem to be a bit much, and it would be in real life, but the collection's spread, including black and white shots, has a grainy feel to it as though it were pulled off a Super 8 roll. Family vacation photos, maybe, if your cousins are that handsome. Nautical Schmautical's...

The Ally Capellino Satchel
If I ever decide to head back to campus to work on that masters degree in economics I've always dreamed about, I'm absolutely taking the Ally Capellino Satchel with me. I might not succeed back in academia, but I'll go fall carrying a very sporty satchel! From London-based designer Ally Capellino, this cool, $215 bag is spacious and produced with durable cotton canvas leather...

Matthew Miller F/W 2011-12 Lookbook

matthew_miller_FW_2011_02-horz
I couldn't help but laugh when I flipped through Matthew Miller's F/W 2011-12 looks. Some are almost enchanting because of their outrageous nature, like the beige-colored cloak with a carabiner clasp and unexpected cutouts shown post-jump. Would someone actually wear this? I can imagine admiring a cloak like that if it were worn without the belt, maybe with boots and a well-cut trouser... maybe....

The 6876 Conner Check Shirt

The new Conner shirt is being trumpeted as a re-introduction of the iconic 6876 shirt aesthetic.

Have a taste for the natural side of fashion, possibly things that evoke memories or even daydreams of moss, trees, foliage? If you're a hiker, then you can probably relate, and if you're not? You can connect if you're a dreamer in the city and drawn to the parks instead of your apartment. John Rocha's F/W 2011-12 collection looks like a good find for the office type with an out-there job that...

Harrys of London Suede Driving Shoes
This particular pair of dark brown suede Harrys of London driving shoes is going to make your chinos look so damn good(!). Casual, yet plenty urbane, the shoe marries modern technology with classic style; this comfy, easy slip-on loafer can go top of the list for ideal weekend wear or traveling.

Balmain F/W 2011-12

Balmain_AW_2011-horz
Balmain's Fall/Winter 2011-12 looks are highly layered for the next cold snap. Even though the combinations represented seem complex due to styling, looking at each piece by itself shows a lot of potential for wardrobe connections beyond what's displayed here. In others words, you'll get plenty of mileage out of your chosen garments and will be able to find lots of ways to mix and match as you...

The Bozeman B1 Hellcat

The Bozeman B1 Hellcat
It sounds like the name of a fighter jet, so no surprise that the B1 Hellcat from Bozeman is inspired by the infamous F6F Hellcat of WWII, a U.S. Naval fighter plane that proved to be the most successful in aircraft history. Bozeman's latest timepiece, a blend of modern and vintage style, features 25 Jewel Swiss movement, 28,800 BPD and water resistant to 330 ft.

The Architect’s Shirt By Taylor Stitch
Inspired by the clean sartorial sense of mid-century architects, independent shirt maker Taylor Stitch and the modern architecture/design magazine Dwell collaborated rather nicely together on an organic, yarn-dyed cotton dress shirt that is known as the Architect's Shirt. The result is a dapper, slim-fitting shirt that comes in a graphite-colored gingham, and even...

Grand_Brixton_2011
Brixton's hats are ready to be bought and top your latest as soon as it really stops being wintry out. Spring is...almost...here, and we're looking for hats to match the happy mood we're in about the winter being almost over. The Brixton Grand hat is one of our favorites, with a finer woven straw and a vintage fit. It's a fedora, yes, but it has an elegant appearance to it--I think it's the...

The S.E.H Kelly Corduroy Blazer
Direct from S.E.H Kelly, their first garment of the year is a lovely, three-button unstructured blazer with drop shoulder. Ideal for spring and summer, the lightweight slate grey blazer is made from 11-wale horizontal needle-cord, which is 100% cotton for extra (extra!) comfort.
