Stand Out in the Dark: Rickshaw Bagworks Reflective Tweed Collection

It was the passion for the city of San Francisco that started it all. Founder and CEO Mark Dwight took the energy of the City by the Bay, combined it with his love for urban cycling, and came up with the idea for Rickshaw Bagworks. “We design our bags for people who thrive on the urban experience and celebrate the creative spirit,” reads the company’s website. Rickshaw Bagworks isn’t Dwight’s first foray into the industry; he is the former CEO of bike messenger bag company Timbuk2.

When he started the company eight years ago, he wrote in Inc. magazine, Dwight’s goal was “to offer infinitely customizable bags for individuals and corporate clients, build them to order in my own domestic factory, and provide fast delivery and low-minimum-order quantities.” Dwight’s penchant for simplicity is part of why the company has succeeded.

As a tech veteran — Dwight worked in Silicon Valley prior to joining Timbuk2 — Rickshaw Bagworks also prides itself in innovation. Last year the company discovered an innovative reflective yarn. Although it was hard to weave and expensive, they managed to find a mill in North Carolina that would help them develop it. Once they turned the fabric into bags, they were blown away by the results. “Even in ambient light the backpack ’shimmers’ — and in the dark, the bag explodes with reflectivity when illuminated,” reads the company website. “The fabric is visibly special in both daylight and darkness.” With six styles, The Reflective Tweed Collection, will definitely have something that fits your needs.

Now you don’t have to worry about being missed in the dark; Rickshaw Bagworks’s Reflective Tweed Collection will make sure that you’ll get noticed.

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.

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.
