For several years now California-based clothing brand Publish has done an admirably impressive job of releasing affordable bestsellers that merge the coolness of streetwear with the clean look of contemporary men’s fashion. A pioneer in introducing the now ubiquitous jogger pant on American shores, Publish continues to expand its offerings and churn out apparel and accessories that call for more than just a cursory glance.

Brand director Alex James recently shared the story behind the label–and offered a glimpse on its future releases….


What is the background of Publish?

The brand started as an idea to create quality clothing in a new marketplace where street and contemporary collide. Publish was created out of a void of fashion-forward clothing with street roots.

What is Publish best known for?

We are known for creating the American jogger pant. Our Legacy and Sprinter styles have become extremely popular around the globe.

What sets the brand apart?

Our design aesthetic coupled with quality materials creates an affordable cool that can’t be matched.

What are some key pieces in the current collection?

The Koby is a custom paint splatter denim jacket that elevates any outfit. The Maverick is the evolution of a jogger pant with snaps at the cuff. You can customize your look depending on what shoes you wear.

Where is the brand sold?

The brand is sold in 26 countries at some of the best stores. We have an awesome global representation.

Who is your “typical” customer?

We don’t have a “typical” customer. It ranges from 14 to 44. We make clothing for all walks of life.

How would you describe the overall design aesthetic?

Comfortable, Progressive, Smart, and Universal.

What special fabrics or details do you employ?

A lot of our clothing has a DWR coating that aids in spillage and stains. Most of the fabrics we use are natural and fully breathable.

Where is the brand manufactured?

We make product in the USA, China, and Vietnam.

What are the future plans for the brand?

Continue to grow organically and introduce more product besides clothing. We want to break into home goods, eyewear, and progressive sports accessories.

How often do you release new merchandise?

We release a lot of products year round.

What are the top reasons readers of The Manual should check out and wear Publish?

If you want to feel good about yourself, try some Publish clothing and experience something different.

To what may we attribute this hardiness? After some research, we’ve determined it’s the clothes they wear.

TAG Heuer Aquaracer Calibre 5 Automatic promo shot

Like a ripe Valencia orange, bursting with juice and color and plucked off the tree at the perfect time, orange watches for men will zest up your wristwear game. In a sea of monochrome monotony, where the average watch is usually blue or black with a stainless steel bracelet, orange watches will certainly have you standing out.

Orange is not only a great way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe, but the color has major significance and use. No, we're not talking traffic cones, Halloween pumpkins, and other unsightly things that famously use the color. It's also seen in a Tuscan sunset, used as a way to see better in the depths of the ocean, or sometimes aids as a symbol of an organization or good cause like environmental conservation.

Tudor releases watch to commemorate Giro d'Italia
Pelagos FXD Chrono Tudor Pro Cycling Team Edition on wrist

On May 4, the Giro d'Italia kicked off, with cyclists embarking on a challenging (a simple word for the mind-boggling, grueling race) journey that spans 3,400 kilometers across 21 stages. It started in Venaria Reale and will conclude on May 26 in the land of pasta and pizza, Rome. The Giro d'Italia has an incredibly long history dating all the way back to 1909, but this year promises an entirely modern update with the addition of the Tudor Pro Cycling Team. Naturally, the Tudor watches has introduced a new timepiece to commemorate what is their first Grand Tour.

The Pelagos FXD Chrono Tudor Pro Cycling Team Edition, a watch so sturdy it can certainly handle the long name, might look familiar to fans of the brand, as it looks just like the Tudor Pelagos FXD Chronograph Alinghi Red Bull edition from last year. However, as is true of the brand, this Tudor watch embraces some technical specifications that make it perfect for the sport it represents.
