Friday | Doing It Right

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s Friday, so go out and do it right.  Bring the attitude, bring the grin, order all your drinks stiff. Shake a leg, hang loose. Walk into the bar like Charles f-in Bronson, smoke your cigarette like Steve Mcqueen, and kick back like Marlon Brando. Lastly stay as approachable as Paul Newman.

There you go. Ditch the straw. Cheers. More pictures inside.

Weathered | Barbour & TO KI TO

Barbour’s outerwear by the hand of Tokihito Yashida breathes new life into a brand grounded in tradition and function. In To Ki To’s Beacon Range collaboration with Barbour, a sharp sense of design is instilled while still keeping their boots firmly grounded with the classic lines of the British clothier. Barbour & To Ki To’s  Blousson recalls the form of World War II bomber jackets. With the use of their traditional waxed cotton, the jacket boasts a luminescence and edge that most overly conservative bomber jackets lack. Pick one up while you still can at the Bergdorff Goodman flagship store, as the Beacon Range is limited.


Wolverine 1000 Mile | I’ve Been Everywhere

Wolverine boot has endured a history of over 125 years. Founded by G.A. Krause in 1885, the company has been producing quality rugged boots for both work-wear and casual necessity. However, it is their Wolverine 1000 Mile boot that has brought its name back to a modern cultural relevance with its design homage to the classic American work boot.  Centered in Rockford, Michigan, the Wolverine brand is one of the many menswear names gaining notoriety today for their “Made-In-America” hallmark. Manufactured by the leathers procured by the hands of The Horween Leather company, an equally historically relevant brand, we find every contour and crevice of this boot finished with the utmost care and attention to quality. Manufactured entirely in Horween Shell Cordovan, these handsome boots are sure to take a good beating and age gracefully like an underdog boxer would.

As its namesake suggests, these are a pair of boots that can be worn to hell and back. And in doing so, you can at least say you turned a few horned-heads along the way.
