Apple Watch

Even though nobody knew it was coming, we all “knew” it was coming. And today, it was announced: the Apple Watch. It comes in six different colors, including stainless steel, brushed aluminum, space gray, and rose gold. Each available in either 38mm or 42mm size for small or large wrists. The face made up of a sapphire crystal display, which is super…

Alton Brown Bow Tie Collection

Celebrity chef and dapper fellow Alton Brown has teamed up with hook + ALBERT to produce a limited-edition line of bow ties and pocket squares for the 2014 summer season. They’ve got a number of cuts and reversible prints available, my favorites being the “sweet and sour” tie and the “blueberry compote” pocket square. The ties are all $65 and the pocket…

Greyhours Essential Watch

The Essential is a sleek timepiece made by Greyhours that represents everything I want in a watch. This minimalist watch tracks only the time, day, and date—the only features I really care about—and it’s beautiful to boot. And for $250, it’s not outrageously expensive despite the use of high-end materials in its production, such as Italian calf leather and an IsaSwiss quartz…

Mehaz 660 Professional Nail Clippers

We mention a lot of fancy gadgets and whatnot around here, but sometimes it’s good to think about the little things, like personal grooming. A common mistake I see people making is not taking care of the appearance of their nails—even people whose hands appear in close-up promo shots of iPhone apps (*shudder*). The first step to fixing this problem is getting…

‘The Hare & The Flying Tortoise’ Collection by Gnome & Bow

“What if bags could be more? What if bags could tell stories?” This is the question Quanda Ong asked himself in May 2013, when he quit his banking job to found fashion company Gnome & Bow. This mindset led him to develop an imaginative brand that focuses on making great bags and other accessories that use clever, subtle details to tell a…

Stalward Ltd.’s Heavy Navy Gingham Tie

Winter may be almost over, but there’s still a little time left to rock a nice-looking gingham tie, and Stalward Ltd. has you covered. Their $68 heavy navy gingham tie is both stylish and classy, and is neutral enough to pair with just about any shirt. If this tie in particular isn’t your style, they’ve got plenty others to choose from.

Nice Laundry

Nice Laundry is a company that sells premium, stylish socks for men and women. As their tagline states, their goal is to “rid the world of old and boring socks.” They sell individual packs of socks (each containing 6 pairs) for $39, but the real draw here is what they call the “sock drawer makeover”, a discounted deal that gets you 3…

Pocket Squares by ‘Put This On’

We’re big fans of the Put This On video series around here. As they themselves describe it, it’s “a web series about dressing like a grownup.” More than that though, they do a lot of behind-the-scenes interviews with people who work in various parts of the industry. Definitely watch the whole series if you haven’t already. They also design and sell pocket…

Baxter of California Shaving Kit

I recently linked to a shave kit that was really only missing one key item: a razor of some kind. Now I’ve come across the Baxter of California Shaving Kit, which has a double-sided safety razor, as well as a nice Dopp bag to carry everything around with while traveling. Also, where the previous kit I mentioned had a simple boar hair…

Field Shave Kit

Something I’ve noticed a lot of in the last few years is a renewed interest in the old-school, ritualistic style of shaving, often referred to as “wet shaving“. Guys are tossing out their modern shaving stuff in favor of the kind of gear their grandfather might have used back in the day, and in turn they’re getting a much more relaxing and…

Need

The other day, our good friend Matt Alexander launched his long-awaited startup, Need. To sum it up, Need is a monthly, curated retailer and lifestyle magazine for men. What does that mean? Well, the way it works is that each month, Need unveils a line of awesome, limited-quantity products – such as attire, books, artwork, coffee, and more – that they’ve partnered…

Sons of Trade Journey Pack

Ever since I picked up an iPad 4, I’ve been on the lookout for a bag that will snugly accommodate the device along with some other items. The Journey Pack by Sons of Trade ($139) seems to fit the bill nicely. It sports a sturdy felt exterior (available in black, olive, or gray) with water-resistant interior lining, and lots of little storage…

Cyclops SE Watch

The Cyclops SE is not your usual wristwatch. It has a black stainless steel case and black stainless steel mesh strap, but the real magic happens on the face. Each hour is represented by a circle and a red hoop eclipses and releases each circle in turn to indicate the time, as seen above. I’d imagine this would take a little getting…

Phil’s Handmade Leather Wallets

Phil’s wallets are crafted out of clean, durable leather that might have gone to waste but instead has been rescued and given new life. They sport that minimal look, yet can fit up to 20 cards and 20 bills at a time. If you need more than that, you may want to consider getting a backpack. Phil and his girlfriend maintain every…

Merkur Model 180 Long Handled Safety Razor

While we know not a single one of you has shaved since Halloween, when the time comes to get rid of that beard of yours, the Merkur Model 180 Long Handled Safety Razor is just the weapon we recommend to use. The chrome handle is easy to grip when your hands are wet, and the single blade is designed for multiple passes…

Nike USA Olympic Team Windrunner Jacket

With the 2012 Olympics wrapping up before we know it, now’s a great time to celebrate America’s impressive medal count in the London games. Nike’s selling the silver windrunner jacket worn by American athletes at the game. Complete with Team USA badge and dotted ventilation perforations, this jacket is promises to be both stylish and comfortable. The men’s jacket is available here,…

Indochino Custom Suits

It’s not the easiest thing in the world to find a suit that you look and feel good in. The key is to find a suit whose size and cut compliment your frame, as well as it being one in which you feel confident and comfortable wearing (because, as they say, the man makes the suit). If you’re not in the market…
