You can’t go wrong with heavy knits for the colder months and the Harding cardigan from Pendleton’s Portland Collection is amazing. The smoked tan finish with the red and brown print throughout will work exceptionally with several different stylings. The wide neck, shawl collar and patch pockets add comfort to a well designed piece. Oh and it’s unisex so you can share with your lady friend(s).
It’s always good to have options and for that, we bring you a look at Rocky Mountain Featherbed Company’s military-inspired down vests. They’re well designed with deep front pockets and a slim fit throughout and come in tan, olive and black. The style is a bit out there but it’s definitely unique from most of the vests we’ve come across this season.
New York’s FSC has looks at two of their finest outerwear pieces for Fall 2011. The piece shown above is the WWII-inspired N-1 Deck jacket that features a recessed rib cuff and corduroy collar.

Both pieces come in 8.5 ounce waxed cotton shells fully lined with Melton wool for sealing out elements and sealing in warmth.
Superdenim and Viberg have teamed up to create a fine selection of Oxfords for the F/W 2011 season. The 145 Oxford is available in four different finishes, each with their own unique details. Our favorite happens to be the tan rough out suede variety shown above (shots of the other finishes below). It features a deconstructed toe and an upper that’s made from an incredible rough out suede leather. The wedge sole works well with the tan shell and the brown details in the stitching, laces really stand out. Each boot is hand made in the Viberg factory in Victoria, Canada.
Killspencer’s utility backpack is made from premium vegetable tanned black pebble leather and features some amazing detailing. The bottom is made from premium bullhide while the inside features flame retardant and waterproof black nylon lining. It’s made to withstand even the toughtest of environments as the military spec webbing passed a 4,000 lb. test. The exterior padded laptop compartment can hold a 15″ Macbook Pro while there are also other slots for exterior cable, iPhone, Moleskine and 2 exterior small side pockets for cards or whatever else you see fit. We won’t tell anyone but there’s also an internal secret pocket for plane tickets, valuables, etc. and if that’s not enough for you, Killspencer can also customize this beauty with your initials or full name.

Once called “the most beautiful car in the world” by none other than Enzo Ferrari, the 1964 Jaguar XK-E still exudes a timeless elegance that only a few cars of its generation can. The 60s wonder is currently one of six automobiles permanently on display at New York’s MoMA but don’t think that’s all it’s good for as there’s no doubt it is still capable of ripping the road as it tops off in the 160 mph range. The Two Inch Cuffs team had the opportunity to take this 1964 Jaguar XK-E around Ft. Lauderdale and there’s no doubt it turned heads and left many wishing to be in the driver’s seat. Amazing stills from the day can be found below.
