Here we have a look at Haversack’s Fall 2011 lookbook. This is most certainly one of the label’s most eccentric winter offerings as it features some vibrant prints. The fit looks to be as exceptional as ever however and there are definitely a few gems in the mix. The outerwear looks to be a pretty consistent point in the collection, with each offering as wearable as the next. (via cs)

The other night, we had the chance to stop in for Park & Bond’s Movember event at the Blind Barber here in NYC. For those not familiar, Movember is annual event that looks to change the face of men’s health. During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Where do you come in? You support their efforts by donating and joining in on the movement as well. This way, the support grows as does the conversation around men’s health and specific cancers that affect us. A long list of gentlemen from Park & Bond’s team have joined Movember, and we were there on November 1st to witness a few guys known for their beards hop in the barber’s chair and wipe it all off.
To donate to Park & Bond’s team, head on over to mobro.co/parkandbond and get in on the conversation.
A small crew from Por Vocacao took a recent trip to Tuscany, Italy, home of shoe manufacturer Buttero. This video which covers their trip and gives us a look at the inner workings of Buttero, sheds light on a family-owned and operated company that’s extremely close in relation and one that’s filled with people that share the same passion for making quality product. “We learned about their ways, their craftsmanship, Tuscany’s unique leather making background and truly understood what sets Buttero apart from other shoe brands in the market.” The Sani family, owners and founders of Buttero, are true representatives of this Italian and their genuine love for the trade shows in this video. Enjoy.

Heritage Research has released their Sierra Nevada Ventile Parka for Fall 2011, one that takes inspiration from a 1952 photo printed in A LIFE magazine of Jack Kennedy in the Sierra Nevada mountain range wearing a classic 1950′s military mountaineering parka. It’s got all the proper details like a navy weatherproof Ventile shell, adjustable hood with removable shearling sheepskin lining, military RiRi zip under a double front placket nickel popper closure stormflap and much more. The authentic pivot sleeves allow for climbing while the four front angled hand warmer pockets will give protection when you need it most. The light tan Ventile and wool blanket lining looks tremendous and does a splended job insulating as well.
Libero Ferrero introduces their debut collection, one that unites old world craftsmanship with modern design. The luxury bags and cases feature custom Horween leathers and Holland & Sherry fabrics and a handmade construction to give the brand a signature collection that’s clean and masculine. Brothers Matt, Adam and Peter Lafferty founded Libero Ferrero in homage to their grandfather, the brands namesake, which pays reverence to the creativity, ingenuity and dedication of his generation. From these first looks, we’d say they’re on the right track.
Libero Ferrero can be found at select boutiques in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago as well as online at www.liberoferrero.com. See the exclusive look at their Holiday 2011 lookbook below.
Gant has launched their first in-house fragrance aptly called “GANT”. It’s inspired in part by the New England waters and coastal living lifestyle. Pierre Dinand designed the bottle and pulled inspiration from wicker baskets that cargo ships in the old days used to transport fragile goods. If that wasn’t enough, Gant also commissioned Pierre Wulff to craft this unique fragrance formula. He chose some exclusive ingredients and created a scent that pulls in the freshness and airy sense of the ocean and combined these characteristics with dark woods and tar ropes.
The film below highlights the relationship between the two gifted talents and how they worked together. This cooperation is pretty special in itself as many times this work is very separate. The fragrance is available now exclusively to Gant stores in 26 countries as well as online at gant.com. For now, make a purchase online and you’ll get a .5 oz sample bottle for free.
