The weather’s shifting and as we head into the cooler months ahead, it’s only right you have the right coat to help you survive. A shearling collared coat like this one from Shipley & Halmos’ Farrand jacket is perfect for anything the winter throws at you. The collar’s removable which adds much versatility to the piece but the detailing is timeless and elegant. It’s double breasted with oversized buttons, features a ton of pockets with leather detailing and is built to last.
From Baxter of California comes their latest creation, the Double-Edged Safety Razor set. Building on the doubled edged safety razor, Baxter added a badger hair shave brush and stand to the mix creating its first ever shave set. The handles on both the razor and badger hair shave brush are made of brass, nickel-plated and are polished to a shiny finish. They are both engraved with a pattern that borrows design elements from the classic barbershop pole.

HODINKEE continues their relationship with Drake’s Of London as they’ve collaborated on another knit tie and added in a pocket square to the mix as well. The tie is again a silk knit (best on the market in our opinion), but this time, it comes in a beautiful red finish with gilt, hand-sewn dots. HODINKEE’s Heritage Tie could be the only red tie you’ll ever want to own. It’s inspired by the Tudor Black Bay, a gorgeous modern dive watch, and the HODINKEE team worked closely with the Drake’s to ensure the color match between the tie and the Black Bay’s bezel and gilt dial was spot on. Mission accomplished.
HODINKEE’s first foray into the pocket square market comes in the form of their Snowflake Square, which is inspired by another Tudor beauty, the Tudor Pelagos. The detail and craftsmanship is unparalleled as the thin silk square has hand-rolled edges and a great feel. The black and white colorway gives it a ton of versatility as well.

J.Crew has been on a bit of hot streak as of late as they gear up for the upcoming season. Their fall catalog was pinned on their Pinterest page in its entirety and made available to pre-order. Note that this is before the products even showed up in their printed catalogs or on their Web store. Now, J.Crew is has also unveiled Discovered, a new shop featuring a curation of hand picked, hard to find items that the American retailer has gathered from trips around the world, word of mouth and some from their own archives even. What we love most about Discovered is that it will unveil new interesting and unique finds every month. J.Crew’s creative and design teams will pick 10 special pieces from third party partners and their own in-house items for Men’s, Women’s and Crewcuts.
The selections will vary from month to month and each item will feature its own editorial content, photography and/or a curated video. This rich content will help to tell the deeper story behind the product and provide insight into why it was chosen.
Discovered went live online today and will debut in J.Crew’s September style guide with a dedicated section in the catalog each month. For the month of September, some standout pieces include Ebbets Field Hats, Nanamica Camo Cruiser, New Balance 998, DS & Durga Homesteader Cologne, and Monogramming. Oh, and speaking of which, J.Crew rounded up four style experts to get their thoughts on the venerable monogram. Video can be found below.
In collaboration with Chicago-based Stock Manufacturing, we introduce to you this trench coat. It’s our first jump into design and we’re really excited to get it out on the market and see how it’s received. Stock gave us the option to pick any garment we wanted and I decided to go with a high quality, any-season trench as it’s one of the most essential garments a man can own.
It comes in a trimmed down fit which flows nicely with the overall minimalistic design. The mid-thigh length was key here as was going with a weather-resistant fabric. I wanted to deliver something that was versatile and I’m really confident in the finished product. Blend the details with the old-world tailoring techniques and the finest Japanese fabric and you’ve got a must-have for any man’s closet.
This piece will be sold exclusively through Stock Manufacturing, for two weeks only. After the next 14 days, the team in Chicago will produce what was ordered, and that’s it. This exact piece will never be available again. So, click through, check it out, and if you dig it – buy. Any questions / concerns / comments, please reach out to me directly if needed — firstname.lastname@example.org.
