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.

The best places to buy vintage t-shirts: Our top picks
Rep your favorite fandom with these tees
Man in Levis tee

 

The best men's clothing will always be full of divisive ideas. As we push the boundaries of what is acceptable, stylish, or masculine, certain items in your closet or drawer will cause backlash for some and praise from others. However, one item will transcend this argument (while simultaneously being the most hotly debated part of it) mostly because it sparks something nothing else in men's fashion does: nostalgic conversation. T-shirts may always walk the line between beloved casual and home wear, but vintage t-shirts find a way to transport us back to a time when the world felt simpler.

NFL’s Kirk Cousins reveals his secrets for the ideal boating day on the lake
The perfect boat and the perfect hat for the NFL QB
Kirk Cousins driving a boat

Nothing beats a day on the lake. Or the ocean. Or even the pool. But not every day on the lake is the same, and some of those moments on the water call for more than just a summer set or a great summer look. Being by the water is nothing compared to being on the water, feeling the waves and basking in the sun where the closest person is sitting on dry land.
That's where Manitou comes in, with its mission to get people off the sand and spend their time getting wet. And no one is better to help Manitou get people out on Lake Michigan better than hometown hero Kirk Cousins, who teamed up with the brand to bring a new twist on the pontoon boat.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the NFL quarterback to ask him questions about the boats, his day on the lake, and even a little football. When he's not leading a team with his arm, he's spending time with his family on the water, and he gave us a peek into his ideal day on the lake, and one of the items he always wears.

Why Manitou?
