Westcomb Outdoor Jackets With Urban Intentions

Fall is here and winter is creeping around the corner. The time for winter commutes to the subway that feel like crossing the tundra are almost here. Thankfully, Westcomb, the outdoor brand synonymous with mountaineers, has just the thing to keep you comfortable and looking sharp. This Fall Westcomb debuted its Soho Jacket and Pemberton Parka. Both are made from Schoeller® c-changeTM fabric, which essentially adapts to your body temperature. The fabric constantly opens and closes during temperature shifts (aka it actually breathes). Both jackets have this material throughout for optimal comfort whether you’ret trying to keep warm walking or trying not to overheat on the subway.

The Soho Jacket comes in a pavement gray with no hood. It’s made of Schoeller® c-changeTM face wool and has a relaxed fit. It’s definitely your jacket for the daily winter commute. The Pemberton Parka comes in black and fits from your head down to your knees. It’s made of premium Canadian Hutterite Down without the marshmallow man look. It’s the Don Draper of down coats. You’ll want to break this beast out for this winter’s blizzards or that nor’easter.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

Every holiday has its own traditions and customs. And St. Patrick's Day is no different.

Here are a few ideas on subtly keeping your style intact while protecting against the invasion of pinches the day brings.

We've rounded up our favorite gear picks from our favorite brands for this green-centric holiday. You don't have to go over the top and throw on shamrocks left and right.

It turns out that learning to tie your shoes in Kindergarten may not have been the win you and your parents thought it was. Men’s slip-on shoes are all the rage these days. Call them ugly all you want — they’re easy to slip on when you’re in a rush and cozy to boot.

Maybe you’re a resident sneakerhead, or perhaps you simply don’t feel like splurging on a pair of designer men’s slip-on shoes. You might simply not be able to get passed the “ugly shoe” label of Birkenstocks (or the more budget-friendly dupes). Still, the ease of slip-on shoes is a massive perk.
