Bluffwork pants will change the way you travel

Jogging pants on a plane anyone? We don’t condone it. The reason(s)?

  1. We are a menswear style website
  2. We like looking good and not like a cheese bag
  3. We discovered Bluff Works

Founded by a gentleman named Stefan who worked at a software company but dreamed of the Life of Riley, he came up with a travel pant that would work hiking in the desert of Egypt to dinner at the hotel that evening. We tried out a pair on a recent trip from Charleston to Rome to Sicily to Jersey (the one in the English Channel!) to London to Charleston. Let us tell you we will never travel without our Bluffworks.

  • You can wad them up and they roll out handsomely.
  • They look great but feel like wearing pajamas on those eight hour overnight flights.
  • There is a hidden pocket for your phone and a zip pocket for your passport.
  • Awesome fit. We thought The Originals were a little grandpa but The Chinos offer a more tailored fit, which we dig.
  • They are quick drying, breathable and moisture wicking.
  • They are made in New York City. Woot!

The pants come in a variety of colors so stock up for your various travels. They are also amazing for bike commuters (like us!) and lightweight enough to wear all summer.

Why You Should Rock a Pair of Flannel-Lined Jeans
Flannel-Lined Jeans

Ah, shoulder season, the purgatory period of the calendar year. It’s cold, it’s windy, it’s gray, and most of all, it’s mercurial. You can wake up to the sun shining and think winter is finally over, only to learn upon leaving the house that snow flurries are expected later in the day. Not only is this psychologically onerous, but it presents a deep quandary when getting dressed. If you can’t predict the weather, what are you supposed to wear?

Choosing your wardrobe from the waist up remains relatively straightforward in shoulder season — just layer up or strip down as needed. But alas, there’s no such solution for your lower hemisphere. It’s either put up with a few more months of bulky base layers or grit your teeth as the cold blows right through your Japanese selvage denim.

Banana Republic’s New Jeans Are Changing the Way Denim Is Made
banana republic dry indigo denim jeans feature

Doing things sustainably in the fashion industry -- one that can sometimes cut corners in favor of churning out the latest and greatest -- isn’t always easy. And that’s doubly so when it comes to crafting men’s denim, one of the most energy and resource-intensive products on the market -- and yet, Banana Republic’s remarkable new Dry Indigo Denim is changing the way denim is made by using a heck of a lot less water than normal in the process. 

By a heck of a lot less water, to be precise, we mean that Banana Republic’s new denim line is made using 99% (yes, 99%) less water than conventional denim, to go along with 89% fewer chemicals, reducing energy usage by a whopping 65% in the process. It’s the foam-dyeing process that cuts down on energy and water usage so effectively, while at the same time delivering a pair of jeans with the same look, fit, and feel as traditional (less eco-conscious) denim.

Unbound Merino is one of the few companies that tout its theoretical never-wash ability. Since the brand recently added button-down shirts to its collection, we had to see what the hype was all about.
