Great piece. I wait for these lists all year, excited to see more as we get closer to the holidays.

Too bad they don’t have boots called Johnnie Walkers..

This would be great, except Jeffersons didn’t bottle any Presidential this year. Although, the Jeffersons Ocean aged offering will be hitting stores in the in the upcoming weeks.

Jefferson Presidential is only second fiddle to Pappy

Behind the Brand: Dubarry of Ireland

Fall is coming, folks. There is nothing we can do to stop it. Gone are the days of ultra-high humidity and sunsets at 8:30PM. The cold mornings are followed by warm afternoon sun and cool evenings. The rain will play an important part of the next few months as well. It’s time to prepare accordingly […]

Atlantic Drift Goodies

Outstanding work by Atlantic Drift on their Oyster Roast Tuxedo shirt and their Fly Visor.  How do you like that Wm. Lamb artwork?  Get ’em quick…they may not last long.

Filson Announces Their Restoration Department

  Well, it makes perfect sense. Not only will a Filson bag last longer than you’ll have a taste for it, but now a hole, tear, or too much wear won’t stop your Filson from holding up it’s end of the bargain.  Filson has announced their Restoration Department which will take care of your worn […]

Res Ipsa: Winterizing

You’ve heard me go on and on about the great work Res Ipsa is doing.  I first came to know them this Spring, and have been a fan ever since.  I have a couple pairs of the kilim loafers, and wear them all the time. Josh and Odini are simply killing it.  I’ve seen their […]

Great write up Jay. I have a question for you. Let’s say you were going out to buy a garment bag / suit holder (really just something for an overnight or two day trip).

Would you go with the Camo Res Ipsa bag or a canvas one from Filson?

JRS - October 27, 2014 - 5:09 PM

Hey Greg – I would go with the Res Ipsa cover or the Hudson Sutler option. For a suit cover, the Filson is a bit to heavy for my taste.

Thanks so much for a fantastic site!!! Do you have any idea when this line will be available in their store?


JPD - November 7, 2014 - 7:56 PM

I love that Res Ipsa garment bag! I wouldn’t mind having that at all

EMM - November 26, 2014 - 8:35 AM

Any idea on the release date? I have been checking back with no luck

Beau - January 4, 2015 - 8:46 PM

I’ve been constantly spying on their website since this article. Any idea when we might be able to get one?

Drop by if you […]

Recent Finds: Winter Jackets

I’ve recently added two new (vintage) jackets to my winter lineup.  Luckily, I’ve remained in pretty good shape, so a few of the tweets that I used to wear are now too big.  I like to think it’s my eating habits and pseudo-dedication to staying healthy, but more than likely they have just stretched out. […]

I recently got a cashmere tweed jacket by Southwick very similar to your Pendelton one, even with the subtle blue check. I’ve only worn it once but I think it will be a favorite this Fall/Winter. Looking forward to seeing how you wear yours.
