Need a badass, last second gift for the dude in your life that wont totally break the bank? Check out the (Made in USA) canvas bags at Billy Reid. They’re all on sale right now and if you order before 3pm CST today, you can get free two day air shipping included.

Another day, another watchband made out of an animal hide. This time from FormFunctionForm. A very blog-friendly brand, FFF offers handmade wares of (to my knowledge) unique design.

This is the shell cordovan button stud watch band. The devilishly simple band is made of a strip of Horween shell cordovan and a stainless steel stud affixed via Chicago screw. Shawn of FFF told me that it would fit snug at first but relax with wear to a better fit. He wasn’t lying. I could barely put it on at first but after a few weeks of wear, it’s stretched to fit my wrist nicely.

Bands are made in the USA and customizable in terms of color, width, and length (I got mine in color #8). Get em while they’re still available. They’re $105 which, to my knowledge, is the least expensive shell watchband you can procure.

*Edit* Also, because I get this question so much, I’ll answer it right here. The actual watch is a modified Seiko automatic (with sapphire lens). It was done by Harold Ng of yobokies. Harold doesn’t have a real online store so you have to e-mail him and tell him what you want. He may not have the parts you want in stock so you have to ask him what’s available and he’ll tell you how much everything costs.

Guys, I was wrong. You all keep asking me what kind of denim I wear and I’ve been saying “ACL x Tellason collab but they’re no longer in production”. Technically this is true. However, Tellason has since been producing the same cut of jean with the same Cone Mills denim only without the ACL cobranding. I’ve been assured by Tellason that the Ankara Straight Leg jeans are indeed the same as the ones I wear. They’re some of the most generously cut American-made selvage denim I’m aware of. They’re currently available in 12.5oz and 14.75oz weights from Tellason’s shop and many other retailers for $198.

As you may have noticed, I’m a pretty big fan of raglan-sleeved, crewneck sweatshirts, especially in heather gray. It seems a bit of a challenge to get a good quality, well-fitting version of something like this without spending a lot more than you’d ever dream of spending on a sweatshirt. Via a follower, I recently found out about American Giant, a San Fransisco company that is making tshirts and sweats in the U.S. at very competitive prices: $25-30 tshirts and $59 sweatshirts (more for buttons/zippers/hoods).
Use my referral link and get 40% off your first purchase and I’ll get a $10 credit. Woo! Everyone wins. Even without the promo discount, I think you’d be very hard-pressed to find product like this that is made in the US at such a low price. Crazy, really.

Woolrich Woolen Mills shawl-collar, unlined field jacket, XL. 65/35 poly-cotton blend, buttoned throat latch, “shooting patch”, two overlapping besom pockets, zippered stash pocket, one interior pocket, taped seams. I got this for a song but it’s a bit too big.

I really like it but I have so many similarly-serving jackets and it just don’t fit right. I’d say it’d be ideal for someone in the neighborhood of 6’3”-6’5”, 220-240lbs (or a woman in the neighborhood of 5’5”-5’9”, 120-140lbs). Retails for several hundred or something but make an offer if you want it.

Measurements available upon request.

I really like the solid, bad-ass look to these Machine Era bottle openers. Probably wouldn’t carry it around with me although it looks small enough. But I could definitely see one hanging on a hook off the side of my grill or on the side of the fridge. They’re a bit pricey at around $50, but I reckon something like this would make a great gift.

This is just a really pleasing photo to me.
