At the end of the day, if we had to pick just one seersucker look for all eternity, it would without a doubt be the classic blue and white stripe. That being said, we absolutely love when brands break away from the classic look, and offer seersucker with a bit of a twist. That just what Brooks Brothers is doing with their Over-Dyed Seersucker Pants.
Last night we finally got to do something we’ve been waiting to do for quite some time, sit down and watch the Orioles play the Yankees. Sure, it is only Spring Training and half of the Opening Day lineup didn’t make the trip, but when our beloved Birds take on the Evil Empire, we’ll be watching. With baseball season just around the bend, we’d been inspired to add a new baseball shirt to our rotation, and we found it just a couple of days ago. It’s the Charged Cotton Tri-Blend 3/4 Sleeve T-Shirt from Under Armour.
Yesterday we went live with a feature about a Bonobos sweepstakes a bit too early. We’ll be reposting when things are official, but, in the meantime, we’re going to keep the Bonobos love going. Over the last few years, Bonobos has become our go to for Go to Hell pants, but also a number of other things. In fact, you could put quite the Fat Tuesday look from their collection.
Once again, we find ourselves staring outside at a sea of bright white snow that Mother Nature decided to deposit here in Maryland. While a little bit of snow from time to time is fine, we’re 100% over it this year. It’s only a matter of time until we get to break out our boatshoes, and when we do we’re going with some bold color courtesy of the latest collaboration from Sperry Top-Sider and Barneys New York.
It was one of those weeks for us, one that has left us enjoying the weekend a bit more than usual. With nothing too pressing on the schedule, it’s going to be a jeans and t-shirts couple of days, and we couldn’t be more happy about it. To round out the casual look, we may pick up something that we’ve never had in our wardrobe, a varsity jacket. American Giant just released their take on this iconic piece, and we’re intrigued to say the least.
Our love for all things nautical is pretty well documented. From anchors, to signal flags, to the occasional captain’s hat, we love it all. This week’s Bowtie Friday pick is definitely one we’ll be breaking out once boats are back in the water. From the shores of Lake Michigan comes the Classic Burgee Bow by Bird Dog Bay.
Gentlemen, wedding season will soon be upon us. Odds are that means you’ll be traveling a few times in the coming months, and a suit is going to have to go with you. Unless you are a far better packer than we are, the only way to make sure you’re going to show up with something that doesn’t look like it was piled in the corner for a month is with a solid garment bag. Just this morning, our friends at Hudson Sutler took the wraps off of their entry into the world of garment bags and we’re definitely impressed.
Dear Colored Denim,
We tried to like you, we really did. We wore you just like we would a classic pair of jeans, and it just didn’t work. We like your 5-pocket look, but things just didn’t look like we thought they should. It’s not you, it’s us.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, it’s time to move on. We really did want to like colored denim, but we just couldn’t do it. Luckily for us, Vineyard Vines included some Five-Pocket Garment Dyed Pants in their latest collection. These may be what we have been looking for all along.
Over the last couple of months we’ve made a reference or two about our disappointment in the fact that Lands’ End had decided to discontinue their Canvas line. With more modern cuts, and price points that you can’t help but love, Canvas was a line that we really liked. Well, it sounds like we weren’t the only people who were disappointed, as it appears Canvas is back! Along with a restock of some of their staple pieces, Canvas has added a few new pieces to their lineup as well. Both new colorways of their Plaid Poplin Shirt look great.
