We’re starting to see some Colorado-based brands crop up who are making fresh menswear and accessories that reflect a rugged sense of utilitarian chic that translates across lifestyles. Winter Session has to be one of the coolest brands we’ve discovered lately and they’re straight outta Denver.
Here’s a fun startorial fact for you. On average, men spend 732 minutes a year thinking about socks. Now I like a nice pair of socks -don’t get me wrong. And when I see some that are unique, I gotta have them. But generally speaking and on most days, I just need a pair that does the trick. And that’s what Blacksocks is all about. Sturdy socks that do the trick, delivered to your mailbox -when you need them.
A great outfit and accessories mean nothing if they’re not accompanied by proper grooming. We see this time and again, a guy can have the best look from say shoulder to toes but often falls short from neck up. It’s not always intuitive. I remember those first adolescent shaves and nicking my face and feeling like I’d never master the whole shave game.
Last month, we told you about Ruitertassen and their collection of -what they call- old school career bags. And old school they are… As the brand has been around for almost 100 years. Since we last wrote about it, the belgium brand has launched the Vanguard collection, an updated version of their best-selling bag.
