Dyer & Jenkins Pops in on Hemingway and Sons

Last Thursday there was a party at Silver Lake’s Hemingway and Sons. The store looks like your effortlessly cool friend’s apartment, complete with painted portraits on the wall, a beautiful woven rug on the floor, and a jukebox cranking out soulful 50s and 60s music, but fortunately for us, this homey place is a store. Brother store to Hemingway and Pickett, it already boasts a selection of great menswear at reasonable prices, but they added to it when threw open their doors to Dyer & Jenkins for a Pop Up shop.

People crowded into the store, browsing the jeans, tees, and baseball hats Dyer & Jenkins had on display, chatting with co-founders Josey Orrs and Paul Jaworski. Even more people braved LA’s version of a chilly autumn night waiting to go in, chowing down on the warm, spicy food from Tacos Tacos Tacos and beer from Lagunitas Brewing Company that the guys from Dyer & Jenkins provided for the opening party.

On top of their classic, versatile jeans and tees, Dyer & Jenkins also brought some items from their apothecary line to Hemingway and Sons. They’ve created candles, shave and beard oils, and shelter sprays to help your face and your home smell heavenly. Three scent options are named after famed Americans with a penchant for the outdoors and are made of essential oils so they’re not overpowering. The Clemens is sweet and smoky with vanilla and tobacco, Walden, for the man who so dearly loved that pond, gets a woody scent of sandalwood, cedarwood, balsam fir to name a few, and Whitman, where good ol’ Walt gets a lighter smell of Tea Tree and peppermint. The shelter spray in particular is delightful as it livens up the room, providing a comforting smell before gently lingering away– a perfect item for those days when you’ve got someone coming over, but didn’t have enough time to deep clean.

Hemingway and Sons will be hosting Dyer & Jenkins for one more week, but their full line is always available at (free shipping on orders over $100). They can also be found in stores around the country. Forge your own path with Dyer & Jenkins, looking and smelling damn good while doing it.

Apple Watch Series 9 vs Apple Watch Series 8: Should you upgrade?
The Newest Apple Watch Comes with Siri Built In
Apple Watch S9 with Nike bands

Apple has debuted its next generation of smart watch, promising more power, increased functionality, and an all round upgrade on previous generations. But if you dropped around $400 on an Apple Watch less than a year ago, is it really worth opening your wallet again?

There are several arguments against buying new tech every time it comes out. There may not be that big a performance leap between one or two generations of a device, or in the case of an iPhone changes may actually be minimal from year to year. Then there’s cost to consider. A device like a smartwatch is a significant purchase, so why buy another if you really don’t have to?

Overland is the king of ski towns: Celebrating 50 years of American mountain west outerwear
How did Overland win over the mountain town
Taos Storefront 2023

Every industry has its mainstay brands that only get stronger with more competition. There will always be some new and fresh idea that challenges all those before it and tries to change the industry. Then there are those brands they face, who have been around for decades, weaving in and out of competition and outlasting every challenge thrown their way. For every new and exciting watch brand, there is a Rolex standing strong. While there are plenty of explanations for why a brand outshines every other around it, Overland Sheepskin Co. has an explanation all its own. On this, their 50th year, we look back and try to understand how this family-owned business became the King of the Mountain towns and what keeps them on top.

Back in 1973, the flagship store in Taos, New Mexico, took a bale of sheepskin and a sewing machine and began creating coats, hats, and mittens for the surrounding area. As word began to spread about their quality, the whole family had to pitch in to help out to meet the growing demand. Five decades later, with 17 stores throughout the Rocky Mountains and across the country, they have become a mainstay in the mountain and ski towns for their quality and dependability. We got a chance to sit down with Monty Goodson, manager of the Santa Fe store and a buyer for the company, to find out how they did it and how they maintain the culture that has made them who they are today.
