Things I fancied this week, (from left to right):
- Royal Suede Sneakers, PRO-Keds x Mcniary
Alright so these have permeated the internet and my brain for at least a couple of weeks. I think they're bordering on a season staple at this point. In four colors, including Kelly green, make them do-able for anyone.
- The Anthem Baseball Blazer, Uniforms for the Dedicated
A really phenomenal take on the classic baseball coat. Make it slimmer, refine the collar, axe the bungee bottom, and this is what you get. The detail work, closures and piping, really put it on the map for me. Beautiful piece.
- Canvas Tote, Mismo
Danish company, Mismo can do no wrong and it's been cropping up everywhere this week. This tote is perfect for every day; a sleeker alternative to Filson, that looks good in a more formal office too. If you like, check out the Mismo write ups on Free/Man & Selecism.
- Cabinology by Dale Mulfinger
Anyone who knows me is familiar with my obsession with cabins/cottages and according to the blurb "If you have a cabin dream, this book is your ticket to making it real." Where do I sign?
- Franklin Chino, Vanishing Elephant
Just a classic chino in a great color and something else to consider besides Dockers. I have not seen them in person but from the measurements it looks like these are a medium/slim fit.
- Floral Button Down, YMC
I've actually been eyeing this for a good month now. Floral is a bit of a trend this season, and while it's not for everyone, YMC does it quite well here. Also, I don't think this company gets enough love given how awesome their offering is lately.
- Marine Automatic Timepiece, Stowa
German manufacture Stowa is one of the greatest mid-level watch companies I know of. This is such an amazing piece for price, which is under $800. Those navy hands just kill me. Honestly, this needs a post of its own but for now, check out the Stowa collection here.
- Organic Cotton Flax Stripe Pocket Square, The Hill-Side
A whimsical little detail for spring that is just informal enough that you could wear it to brunch or a cocktail party. Something tells me this will attract the ladies too - "oh your pocket square is just so charming!" - take my word for it.
- Hooded Mac, APC
APC is hit or miss with me but it is a consistently good brand when it comes to outerwear. This trench will take you through the transition of the seasons, with a 100% cotton outer and removable wool liner and hood. The silhouette on this one is hard to beat and the nicely over-sized buttons are a good touch too.
