OLIVE – Fall’s Military Inspired Color

olive falls military inspired color fall
For this fall, martini’s aren’t the only place you might be seeing olive(s).  Olive is back in the spotlight for many reasons.  The military angle is certainly strong this fall, as is all things hunting, camping and camouflage.  And we have been wearing plaids and ginghams for quite some time now, so let’s call Olive the perfect palate cleanser.

We rounded up some of our favorite olive fall pieces from a variety of brands we like:

Coach – Quilted with a brown suede shooting patch on one shoulder, has a stow-away hood, zippered closures at the cuffs, and shirttail hem to keep you protected from the wind. This sporty jacket is tailor fit and has a bit of dressed-up hunting vibe.

Aether – Lightweight pullover hoodie made from 2-layer duo fold cotton jersey. This fabric was originally developed by the U.S. Army for their Extended Cold Weather Clothing System. It combines softness with thermal properties making it great alone, or as a layering piece.

Howe – This jersey short sleeve t-shirt emblazoned with RPBLC CLFRNA. Great it’s own, or perfect for a layering piece, for all you West Coast lovers.

Burkman Bros. – With ribbed waistband and cuff, this woven cotton style is a cross between a fatigue and an athletic pant. It’s two front hand pockets and back patch pockets, and zip fly and button closure, make it perfect for any weekend.

G.H. Bass – With a suede upper and sturdy non-marking sole, it’s a shoe that takes you from work to weekends. The Pasadena Buc is a rugged oxford, but can still be worn like a dressed-down dress shoe for your favorite pair of denim.

Cole Haan– The Greenwich Messenger bag is made of soft Italian leather, and is very multi-functional. With two external pockets (one with a magnetic closure) and three interior pockets. One of inside pockets is for your laptop, a second pocket for files, and the third, a zip closure, for your secret stash.

Skagen – Seamlessly blending natural elements with modern design, Skagen, designed in Denmark, features a jet-black steel dial connected with an olive leather strap.

VRST Is the Best Alternative to Lululemon’s Athleisure We’ve Seen So Far
vrst athleisure line 2021 q1

This is not a story about Lululemon. It is a story about VRST, a Dick's Sporting Goods exclusive line of athleisure clothing, including commuter pants, joggers, tees, hoodies, and other easy-wearing lifestyle pieces that you'll want to wear every day, especially when the occasion calls for something that both breathes well and looks put together. But it's about Lululemon in the same way that the subtweet you sent was really about Drake even if you never mentioned Drake specifically. (We all knew who you were talking about.) Let me explain.

VRST is about Lululemon even if it never mentions Lululemon because Lululemon crushes with its ABC Pant, which stands for Anti Ball Crushing and, as its name suggests, is very comfortable. I have no fewer than five pairs of them, and I've owned more because they look like a pair of khakis but feel like a pair of running shorts. And in my home in the South, where the interminable summers are trying to crush my family jewels for six months out of the year, minimum, they are a godsend. Playing golf? Yes. Attending a Sunday service? No doubt. From date night to work event, they are so versatile and comfortable and flattering that I bought them in every color. To date, my only complaint is that, after repeated wears, they can retain the stink of old sweat the same way your workout tees can hold past funk. Lululemon's essentials, from tees to pants to polos, are guy favorites the world 'round, which is quite an accomplishment for a company previously synonymous with women's workout tights.

The Best Men’s Leather Gloves, Hands Down
best mens leather gloves 2020

The old saw about losing the majority of your body heat through your head has been disproven. The reality is that you lose the same amount of heat through any exposed skin on your body — so if your hands are bare, you’re also losing heat. While sport gloves or work gloves preserve your digital dexterity with thick lining, waterproofed exteriors, and reinforced palms, “streetwear” gloves rarely combine good looks with effective thermal protection. Generally speaking, you’ve got a choice between chunky knitted mitts that don’t pair well with grown-up fashion, or driving gloves made from thin, unlined leather that are pretty to look at but impractical in the cold.

If you’re out there suffering from frostbitten fingers, we’re here to help. It’s time for you to discover the world of dress gloves. Made for the style-conscious urbanite who isn’t above nodding to trends, the category of dress gloves is narrow, but the offerings are broad and inclusive. You can find dress gloves at online outlets like Huckberry as well as department stores like Bergdorf Goodman — basically, wherever you shop for quality goods. And if you want pieces to go with your leather gloves, check out our Black Friday fashion deals.
