New York-based outerwear performance brand Hawke & Co. just released a new capsule collection with CFDA designer Burkman Bros., which features classic fall favorites in fashionable, laid-back styles.

“It was truly a pleasure and a career highlight to work with Doug and Ben Burkman,” began Hawke & Co CEO Michael Rosenberg. “I always thought of them as the edgier younger brother of our brand. This collaboration was full of synergy and I think the collection itself reflects that harmony.”

This harmony manifests in a handsome, understated collection of stylish active wear for the man on the go. As the two brands began to develop the looks that would comprise the capsule, they kept a tight focus on warmth, durability and comfort.

While the designs ended up being quite modern and stylish, the coats were built first and foremost to keep up with their guy, whether he be traversing a mountain path or a busy city street.

“We made sure to create pieces that are lightweight for an easy transition from work-to-play yet can resist temperamental weather,” Rosenberg explained. “These versatile pieces will last you through any adventure big or small, whether it’s hiking, kayaking, or even just taking a walk.”

The capsule boasts fleece zip-fronts ($150), bombers ($195) and down-filled popover jackets ($210) in polyester and nylon, which give them their durability. The jackets are designed for a slim fit and stuffed with duck down, which keeps them both warm and lightweight.

The pieces come in neutral colors (grays, blues and hunter greens) as well as a few playfully innovative prints (such as their Snake Print Down Popover).

“It has truly been incredible,” Rosenberg had to say of the collaboration.  “To fill white space with a clear design aesthetic in a mature and saturated market is a testament to the Burkmans and their design aesthetic, as well as the strength of the Hawke & Co brand.”

The capsule is being offered exclusively through Bloomingdale’s and can be viewed, here.

A new study reveals how filthy Apple Watch bands really are

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.
