Game of Thrones x John Varvatos Collection Drops Just in Time for Final Season Premiere

Fans of Game of Thrones, get ready — there’s something more than winter coming.

That’s right, diehard menswear aficionados and “Throne” fans alike have a little something extra to wear and enjoy as the final season of GOT approaches on Sunday, April 14 (finally).

Rock and roll inspired designer John Varvatos and HBO are partnering on Game of Thrones x John Varvatos, an official, exclusive collaborative collection of menswear inspired by the popular series. Whether or not you’ve powered through and caught up with each episode of the acclaimed series, this collection is worth a look. And there no spoilers, we promise.

With 11 different pieces to satisfy your appetite for killer style, from the seriously expensive Winterfell Leather Jacket (pricing in at more than $2,600) to the more affordably priced Heritage Henley, the Game of Thrones x John Varvatos is the menswear-TV mashup you didn’t know you needed in your life, and it couldn’t come at a better time.

The real kicker here is that Varvatos has turned the visually striking world of Westeros into a menswear collection that captures the texture of the show — from the linen-cotton Kingsroad Pants, featuring a tapered fit and a distressed finish, to the heavy-washed linen construction of the Heritage Henley (pair up both with a denim jacket or perhaps one of the leather jackets from the collaboration itself).

For the guy who prefers his everyday carry essentials to have a bit of flair, there’s also the Traveler Bag, which doesn’t look too far off from something you’d see slung across the back of a horse-mounted rider on the show. There’s also a run of graphic T-shirts, including one with that famed phrase, “Winter Is Coming” (hey, you had to know that was being made, right?).

But the real king of this collection is the aforementioned Winterfell Leather Jacket, with all the edgy appeal you’d expect from a John Varvatos leather jacket (and a price tag to match).

Are you really a fan of Game of Thrones if you don’t pick up a piece from this collection? We’ll leave that for you to decide. Pledge your allegiance wisely, Westerosians!

Sad you don’t see any footwear included in the above collection? Look instead to Adidas that has a whole slew of shoes to help you rep your House pride.

Your Apple Watch’s band may look clean, but a recent study has shown that your favorite band is probably covered in the sort of disgusting filth you would expect to find crusting up the seat in a public lavatory. According to Florida Atlantic University, 95% of the straps tested were coated in something unpleasant. This includes the infamous E. Coli -- a bacterium that is usually found in the intestines of mammals and has been linked to numerous severe food poisoning outbreaks over the years.

Other unpleasant microbes discovered by researchers include staphylococcus spp, which can cause staph infections when it is introduced to an open wound, and pseudomonas -- another organism that can cause incredibly dangerous infections under the right circumstances.

The world today is based on a "throwaway culture." That means we have become obsessed with one-time-use items like plastic water bottles, grocery bags, and paper towels. While this can make things feel cheaper and easier up front, it can be more expensive and cumbersome in the long run, not to mention hazardous to the environment. This is also true with your wardrobe. There are plenty of places you can get cheap clothing if you just need to wear it one time. In the long run, though, this is detrimental to you, your bank account, and the environment.

Learning how to care for your wardrobe to make it last longer is better for you, your wallet, and your sanity. Invest in quality items that are made to stand the test of time so that you won't have to shop for clothing every time a new event comes up like other men do. Once you have those quality items, here are the tips that will ensure they last for years, and maybe even a lifetime.
