Tanner Goods collaborates with San Francisco-based denim label Tellason for this Roll Tote bag. It’s extremely portable and features high quality fabrics and craftsmanship throughout. It’s available in three editions, each with particular leather and denim detailings. A few of the fabric options to choose from are 12.5oz denim, 10.5oz deadstock duck canvas from Graniteville Mills, and a heavier 19oz black waxed canvas. The attached should straps allow the bag to be rolled up and tucked away, adding some functionality to a great looking piece. (via hb)
From Dents comes these suede lined leather driving gloves, a lightweight winter essential. The elasticated, snap fastening cuff features a hint of red trim while there’s perforation throughout the gloves. The black finish is a bit more subdued than a brown or cognac variety so it will be a bit more versatile and conservative should the occasion call for it.
Boxing legend Joe Frazier, former champion and first to ever beat Muhammad Ali, has passed away at the age of 67 from liver cancer. “You can’t mention Ali without mentioning Joe Frazier,” said former AP boxing writer Ed Schuyler Jr. “He beat Ali, don’t forget that.” They fought three times, Ali and Frazier, and each time, both fighters gave it their all, even in the “Thrilla in Manila” where both fighters really left it all in the ring. I think that’s what we’ll remember Joe for — his resilience. That and the fact that he was one of the most standup guys to put on a pair of gloves. He was lighthearted and will forever be engraved in boxing history.

For those that follow us on Twitter (shameless plug), you may have noticed my declaration of love for Boardwalk Empire. The show’s set in Atlantic City during the Prohibition Era and is undoubtedly one of the most well-written shows on television today. One of my favorite characters in the show is Chalky White played by Michael Kenneth Williams, though it should be said that he’s been quiet the last few episodes, hopefully that changes. Back to the subject at hand, MR PORTER actually sat down with Mr. Williams for a brief Q&A, one that gives us a little bit of insight into the man he is off the screen. At the same time, they’ve also dropped a few accompanying looks as he sports the season’s best coats.

From Augustin Pictures, one half of whom spent 3 years living in the country, comes Afghanistan, a short film that looks to shed light on the beauty of the country rather than what the political media as delivered in the past decade or so. The travels span highlighted in this video span from Kabul to Mazar-e Sharif, locations the producers chose were the least probmatic though this doesn’t mean incidents didn’t occur. Enjoy the clip below.
Filson drops this umbrella made from highly water repellent Cover Cloth. It’s strong enough to stand up to wind and rain yet light enough for easy carrying. This durable umbrella also features an embossed Filson logo on wooden handle and opens to about 40″.
From Christian McCann, founder of Left Field NYC, comes Choctaw Ridge. The label features well-designed and impeccably-crafted undergarments that are manufactured right here in the USA. The goods come in a 1930s style gift box that’s also printed and assembled here in America. It all started when Christian came across an old underwear box from the ’30s. The box represented an era when men put considerably more effort in their appearance and though this has been lost in many ways over the year, Christian looks to turn back the clocks by introducing product worth buying.
Gear Patrol turns us to a new book from the NYT, one that sheds light on the amazing travel destinations available to us in the United States as well as Canada. “Filled with photography and gorgeous illustrations, The New York Times, 36 Hours: 150 Weekends in the USA & Canada ($25) brings together a host of their famous travel series in one complete package, without a single ludicrously overpriced expedition in site. Take it with you for a cross-country sojourn or leave it at home as inspiration for your next excuse to break out the weekender. After all, Columbus didn’t have Trip Advisor, so we’re pretty sure you can survive without it too.” Well said, friends.
