Off the Hanger : Duck Season

Just so you don’t get confused about the new hunting enthusiasm felt by many right now, I thought I’d put together my list of staples that I will actually use (the shooting iron would be the one I would use if I had the coin) this weekend when the season opens. Tin Cloth Jacket Mechanic’s [...]

Trying to find a few more examples of the “fancy” hoody I was talking about seeing in San Fran. The top 3 are from Life After Denim, the 4th from Nobis, and last is, of course, that shirt from BR. Not all hoodies, and yes, still military in there, but maybe that’ll give you more [...]

Dievas Vintage

Really nice new line of vintage inspired watches from Dievas. I’m sure these probably get the rag from the hardcore trads but I’m still a fan. I think they might even be better on women, for that old timey hand me down from grandpa look.
