Monocle Voyage: Sharp Threads for Globetrotters

For those unfamiliar with Monocle magazine, it is a super slick publication that focuses on international affairs, business, culture and design. When we heard the Monocle brand, which also head up a radio station, concept stores across five cities and a café in London, had launched their inaugural fashion collection we were a little more than intrigued.

MV_TravelBlazerTrouserLRThe Monocle Voyage Collection was designed with experienced travelers in mind. Whether roaming on foot or sitting in-flight, globetrotting takes precedence in the design of each garment. Designer Daniela Diletto found inspiration in the hectic, international lifestyle of Monocle Editor-in-Chief, Tyler Brûlé. According to Diletto, the Monocle Voyage man is ‘a well-traveled gentleman who is always looking for high standards of comfort and functionality’. Amen to that.

We love the extreme edit of this capsule collection. Consisting of just five pieces that have been designed to suit all manner of climates, packing just five great, beautifully crafted pieces into the world’s smallest suitcase is the ultimate travel dream, are we right? Pieces include a Japanese classic crew T-shirt, a pair of navy straight cut trousers, an unconstructed travel jacket to match, a sweatshirt available in navy or grey marl and a classic Oxford shirt made from high-quality cotton sourced in Italy. All that’s missing is your passport…

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?
