Jim the veteran gets extreme makeover’d for veterans day and charity:
That zip-up he has on.. “President’s Club – Sick” is that a SUPREME collab? Shit is tight. Would cop.
1:52 – #Menswear in the house.
It’s amazing how a haircut and some nice clothes can change a person. Good to see at the end that it says Jim has taken control of his life.
You can donate to Degage Ministries (the Veterans Charity) over at the YouCaring website.
Alexander McQueen does the combat trouser right:
You can play around with other combat trousers, even attempt to buy surplus and get them altered. I’ll venture a guess though and say even at skilled-Asian-lady-who-inexpensively-alters-like-a-finely-tuned-matcha-powered-machine prices, all the details you’ll want duplicated on these trouser are going to run you a grip. In addition to the high cost of labor, you’ll also run the risk of being judged by her for not having your priorities straight – Whoa whoa easy there, I thought we had an arrangement? You take care of the alterations I’ll take care of the looking good.
£485 ($774 USD) over at Oki-Ni. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m done saying I’m done playing. When I need combat trousers I’m hollering at my dude Alex McQueen for the hookup.
One of my favorite outerwear brands Ten C, with this Olive snow smock:
Definite M-65 inspired design cues, but sauced up with a badass hood and removable belt. I don’t really have much to say about this jacket besides the fact it has a nice vintage look which will wear well, and the 5 external pockets coupled with a pocket or two inside should definitely provide enough space for all your contraband. Honestly, when you buy a jacket that should definitely be high on your requirements checklist.
The hand printed size and red wax seal of their logo on the inside is too legit. I put that in the idea vault for things I should for ENDO someday.
Grab this snow smock over at The Bureau for a cool £800 ($1277 USD).
Meet Asher, and his Krane “Asher hooded peacoat”:
The peacoat is coveted by all pretentious white guys named Asher, it’s built into their DNA. Some Asher’s have the misfortune of not being born with a silver spoon in their mouth though, so they have to settle with a peacoat from the GAP or JCrew and pretend they are hot shit anyway. Step up your hustle yung-budget-Ashers, and come correct this A/W13.
This Krane brand peacoat shits on basically all other peacoats I’ve ever seen. How can a sub $200 joint compete with this masterpiece which not only has more closure buttons than average, leather elbow patches, and a split hood? Those few details alone gently whisper “fuck your basic peacoat” to every guy you’ll walk by, and divert his girl’s attention to you in the process. I didn’t say this life shit was going to be easy. These are the breaks with lux peacoat ownership my friend.
$1001 over at Revolve Clothing. Where that extra dollar was added to the price just to make you break a hundred and get obnoxious denominations of change back because Suzanne running the till only has 5s, 2s, and nickles.
Lanvin absolutely crushing it with this roll down military style duffle:
Plenty of (read MOST) guys out there aren’t going to appreciate the attention to detail and beauty of such an item. Skewed quilted stitching on the leather, carry handles, zippered pockets, and an ample inner compartment. By my calculations this duffle will definitely hold about a quarter million in hundreds while still leaving room for condoms, a passport, clean socks / underwear, deodorant, cologne, and a few ENDO Apparel t-shirts… the weekend kit of the successful bachelor 😉
$2600 over at SSENSE, where don’t ask don’t tell only refers to the price tag.
Send my condolences to the dry feet game:
Complaining about the rain will only get you so far. Drop $100 on these Swims camouflage print Galoshes though, and you’ll be stepping over the wet corpses of guys who have heart attacks when your stylish feet hit the streets. Bonus points if during a day of potentially inclement weather, you keep a pair of these rolled up in your bag and wear your Tier 0 limited edition Jordans anyway.
