Hands On || Wm. J. Mills F/W '12

Wm. J. Mills F/W '12

For the past few months, I've been carrying around a few items from Wm. J. Mills F/W '12 collection
and have been very impressed with their craftsmanship and durability.  Using the waxed cotton "Boston Bag" for my camera/tripod equipment and even taking the "Sag Harbor Duffel" on my first camping, I put these bags through the paces and got many compliments along the way.  I guess it is true that not all canvas bags are created equal.

Hands on || Mark McNairy x BBC

As a fan of the first two seasons of Billionaire Boys Club (BBC), I was excited to get a sneak peak of their collaboration with Mark McNairy, titled the "Bee Line." When I spoke with McNairy about my own BBC/Ice Cream collection from 5 years ago he asked me if I still wore any of it today. I replied that I only wear the understated pieces and he said that's exactly what he was going for in the upcoming Fall/Winter collection, a grown up version of the line. And with a collection filled with Crescent Down parkas, blazers, cardigans and plaid shirting, McNairy definitely succeeded.

Inside Confirmed Stock

Just a few blocks from John Hopkins University in a old church, Baltimore, Maryland hosted its first men's pop-up flea on Saturday, April 28, appropriately named Confirmed Stock. The weather held up nicely as people poured in to get a chance to test and purchase many of the products that they’ve only seen online. Brands such as Bull and Buck, Randolph Engineering, Cause and Effect, Two Inch Cuffs and Blue Claw Co. were represented which made for a good mix of leather goods, clothing, and footwear selections. And with the success of this latest pop up shop, plans for a Fall showing is already in the works.
