CDG put their ridiculous heart logo aside for once, got the Disney blessing and hit the cotton running:


£125 ($209 USD) over at END Clothing.

I bet you didn’t even know camo blocking was so hot right now.  I didn’t either, but know I know.   Add prototype looking Mickey Mouse sketches to it, a Mickey multicam into the mix, and what you have is a witches brew of straight fire.

If I would have known about this before I went to Disney Land with my family this Christmas I would have copped and stunted on all the basic park goers.  Instead, doing as I normally do, I packed a massive duffle bag and a carry-on backpack full of clothes and shoes…. Did I wear all/most of it?  Nope, I wore the same pair of raw denim I’ve been trying to break in, and just changed socks, underwear, and my t-shirt (ENDO Apparel of course) all week.

Side note: I didn’t forget about this blog, don’t worry.  I’ve been crazy busy with ENDO though, so that’s been taking up most of my time.  I’ll try my best to get posts up here more regularly!  Thanks to all of you that still are subscribed and check back!


Perfect for cozy P.J. rides to your girlfriends parents place for the weekend:


This isn’t the first time SOPHNET hit the side of a flannel with camouflage.  Good call on the multicam this year because it’s hot… Kryptek would have been cool too.  Notice I specified I liked the multicam… not whatever that urban-multicam grey bastardization is on two of the shirts.

Most girls just won’t appreciate the multicam detailing.  Going to her parents for the weekend you tried to push the envelope a bit and wear something fall appropriate with a collar, but not look like some boring J.C. Penny lame… she won’t shut up about how it’s too casual.  She knows you keep an extra kit stowed just for emergencies so watch out for that “Oops, turbulence caused me to spill mimosa all over your chest” move.  Girls can be sneaky like that.  Just tell her you’ll turn the plane around if her ass keep complaining, and it’s a wrap.  Her young guy cousins and you will bond over the multicam, you’ll toss beers back and poke fun at the struggle Movember staches they are all cultivating, probably shoot some quail or something, everyone will love you, and all in all it will be a good weekend trust me.

¥24,150 ($242 USD) over at SOPHNET.


Loud camouflage socks:


$40 over at Nice Laundry.

At the end of the day isn’t that #menswear life all about quietly announcing to other guys how superior you are, as often as possible?  If some ways happen to be inexpensive, then great.  Sure $40 per pair of socks isn’t cheap if you’re used to buying Costco 12-packs.  How many socks do you really need though?  I suppose the first question should be how often do you do laundry?  If you do laundry once a week, and want a bit of a buffer then 10 pairs of socks would probably do it.  I don’t have a specific laundry schedule, so I have like 30+ pairs and have even bought more instead of doing laundry.  I was actually thinking that I needed some nicer socks a while ago, so I’ll probably add at least a pair of these to my drawer.  Good to have on hand when you know you’re going to be chilling out in public, casually throwing an ankle onto your opposite knee where your denim raises up causing the sock to peek out.   Random people are not likely going to tell you how great your socks are, but when you catch them doing a sideways glance then quickly looking away you can chalk it up as a win.

Beams+ camouflage bow tie:

Beams-Plus-Camouflage-Bow-Tie-2I faced the music a long time ago, I know you guys follow this blog primarily for one of three reasons. The first being you have a genuine interest in military inspired menswear and fashion in general… that’s great; “bless bless” (as they say).  The second, you want to feel good about yourself because you’re not as #ForeverAlone as I am.  Lastly maybe you’re forever alone too, and you like to relate.  Any of those reasons are alright, as long as you keep coming back.  Don’t worry about me, I’ll blog through the loneliness and might even end up with a camouflage bow tie or two.

$65 over at Mr. Porter.  Definitely one of the cheaper items Beams+ makes next to their socks.


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.


Australia’s own UGG comes through:


Hear me out… I know that after a 4.5 month hiatus from this blog a lot of you are going to be criticizing this homecoming post being about Uggs and not some next level Japanese shit I blessed you with so often before.  Cool out, because these are slippers not shoes and that Japanese stuff is going to be coming back full speed.  It should be noted that a fair number of douchebags aren’t going to understand the science behind slipper vs shoe construction, and frankly discussing that with you guys or anyone else is way below my pay grade.  In case you didn’t know, driving shoes semi-recently became the new menswear “thing”, and a lot of guys are not wearing them just for driving.   I was commenting to one of the girls at Nordstrom a while back how I wish a low key pair of Gucci driving shoes they had in stock came in a street version, and she was like “O ya… you Be surprised how many guys just wear them outside anyway and then try and bring them back for a refund in 2 months when they all wore out”.  I said nothing, but gave two disappointed nods in which “no doubt sistah” was implied.

$140 for the slippers.  They come in both “Stout” and “Metal” colors.  I don’t know who comes up with the names for these colorways, but I now feel I should do something arbitrary like that with my own line just because I can.

Holy @ the sizing going all the way up to 18.  I’m 6’4″ and my feet are pretty substantial at size 12.  Funny when you click on Ugg’s own sizing chart, 18 isn’t even on there… it only goes up to 16.

I have a pair of non camouflage Ugg slippers, so I can attest to their quality construction and their coziness.
