Stussy Deluxe looks to take things next level with this collaborative effort with UK leather goods company, Ettinger. The co-branded leather billfold are a great pickup for the holiday, whether it’s for you or someone else. Ettinger has been crafting fine product for over 70 years and have even been granted a Royal Warrant by the British Royal family. This custom-made billfold is another exceptional delivery as it features a coin pocket and comes in three color ways: black with yellow interior, brown with red interior and tan with powder blue interior. These pieces are hand made and feature the utmost attention to detail.
Mark McNairy does it again, this time teaming up with Canada’s HAVEN for a limited run of these Country Brogues. What’s not to like about them? They come in an extremely versatile navy suede upper that’s mated to a hand stitched Goodyear welt on a Natural crepe wedge sole. The contrasting white round laces and eyelets allow you to dress this down a bit but shouldn’t stop you from wearing them to your next semi-formal outing.
Real McCoys product for Winter season has dropped at Superdenim with this deer skin down vest leading the charge. It comes in a brown shell that’s made from deer skin and fitted with Buck suede on the shoulder. The label consistently delivers classic sportswear-inspired pieces with all the right luxurious touches and this down vest is no different. It’s made in Japan and features duck down filling, ensuring top notch insulation.
We’ve seen iPhone cases done up in a wide range of colors and finishes but Il Bussetto’s leather cases really look and feel more luxurious than most of the others we’ve come across. The shell is made of hand painted leather and features a camera hole and an embossed Il Bussetto logo.
From ts(s) comes this amazing looking jacket made from Italian Tweed and fitted with a knit collar for added warmth and detail. The Japanese label chose a high-end double faced wool which was washed to give it a rugged feel. The soft ribbed shawl collar, double breasted closure, rolled up buttoned cuffs and large broad side pockets all add to the fine details of this modern day classic. Available now through Por Vocacao.
From New York’s Thom Browne comes the Jersey Parka. It’s made from, you guessed it, jersey fabric but has the construction of a hooded parka. It features a button front closure and stripped left sleeve, while the iconic Thom Browne stripe can be seen going down the front closure for added detail.
Wolverine 1000 Mile is pairing up with NYC retailer Leffot to auction off the #1 pair of their limited edition Wolverine 721 LTD Boots to benefit GlobalGiving’s project helping orphans in Japan rebuild their lives post-tsunami.

Junya Watanabe of COMME des GARCONS continues a fruitful collaboration with The North Face with this winter down coat from the eYe COMME des GARCONS JUNYA WATANABE MAN line. This piece is really well-thoughtout as it features elements from military-inspired classics like the N-3B and B9 and blends it with modern detailing. Note the leather trimmed pockets, classic check on the inner lining and the corduroy collar to top things off. The removable hood features fur and a central zip as well. Look for this piece to hit select accounts soon with an MSRP in the $1,750 range.
I recently stopped in to visit good friend and one of New York’s best dressed men, Nish De Gruiter of Suitsupply. We got the talking and realized it’s the perfect time to really shed some light on the brand. ‘Tis the season. The Dutch custom clothier made its way over from Europe about six months ago and they’ve already begun to lay their mark on the city. The suiting is well-made and features all the proper sartorial touches. Beyond housing a long wall of suits, the SoHo boutique also has a ton of complimentary pieces such as outerwear, neckwear, footwear, travel goods and shirting. Suitsupply also features a Made-To-Measure service that competes with the best of them.
We love to work with great people that are doing great things. Suitsupply embodies all of this. Nish & company are really feeling the holiday cheers as they’re looking to giveaway a holiday package to one lucky winner. The package includes one slim-fit button-down shirt with cutaway collar, a wool tie and a cotton/cashmere blend buttoned sweater.
