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…

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…

Designy Temporary Tattoos

Ask any guy or gal with a permanent tattoo (including yours truly) and they’ll tell you that tattoos are addicting. They’re painful, permanent, expensive, and you’re always thinking about the next one you could get. And then there’s the world of temporary tattoos, where most of the options are silly and childish. That’s where Tattly comes in with their hip and “designy”…

Bellroy’s Note Sleeve Wallet

The folks at Bellroy were kind enough to lend me one of their Note Sleeve wallets for a while. It’s the first bifold wallet I’ve used in over a decade and I like it. Most traditional wallets are plain and lifeless. They have the expected layout for your cards and a spot for your cash and receipts. The Note Sleeve has these…

Ugmonk’s Mountain Hoodie

Graphic designer and fellow snowboarder, Jeff Sheldon, brings the majesty of the mountains to a hoodie — Ugmonk style. It’s a simple, abstract design but isn’t without meaning. I’d wear this.

Slimmy Wallet

I have owned my J. Crew Magic Wallet for so long I don’t even remember what wallet I had before it. You can tell a lot about a man by the wallet he uses, and I think most men care deeply about having just the right wallet. I know I do. And though I’m always on the lookout, it’s been at least…
