TGIF Shopping: Visionary Boot By Brave Gentleman

Visionary Boot - Brown Every man needs a good pair of boots that will age gracefully through more than one winter. While we appreciate leather, the Visionary Boot (100 percent vegan) by Brave GentleMan can hold up just as well as the best calfskin on the market. We are not suggesting you change your mind about throwing a steak on the grill, but these boots give you a wardrobe option you can feel good about. They are 100 percent vegan, sustainable and fair labor.

Visionary Boot- FrontThe Visionary Boot is part of an ongoing collaboration with Brave Gentlemen x NOVACAS. NOVACAS is an organization committed to providing animal-friendly as well as environmentally friendly products. The boot is built out of Italian PU microfiber that breaks in like any leather. They are manufactured in Portugal in worker-friendly factories too. The boots come in brown, black or patent and run $304 a pair. If you like these and want to consider adding eco-friendly menswear to your arsenal check out the Brave GentleMan. The line by designer Joshua Katcher is all eco-friendly. Katcher is known as a leader in ethical menswear. He started menswear site The Discerning Brute in 2008, which focuses on fashion, food and etiquette for the “ethically handsome man”.

Meet Up Mondays: Christopher Bastin
Christopher Bastin

With a global presence in more than 60 countries, GANT is one of the most celebrated lifestyle brands today, applauded for capturing not only the look and feel of how men want to dress today but also its subtle newness and just downright good-looking American sportswear season after season. Much of the company’s success is owed, of course, to creative director Christopher Bastin who worked at Acne, Whyred and H&M before heading to GANT in 2005 as the lead shirt designer and then head of design of GANT Rugger, the more directional and excellent archive-inspired label, in 2009. Bastin quietly ascended to the post of creative director of 2012, relinquishing his role at Rugger; however, if  anything has changed under his watch, it’s that GANT has never looked better and more appealing as the brand you want on your backs. Herewith, our conversation with the designer on great style, great food and the next great collection. 

M: Christopher, what are you wearing in this picture and is this how you dress daily?

Meet Up Mondays: Ernest Alexander
Ernest Sabine feature

Named GQ Magazine’s 2013 Best New Menswear Designer in America, Ernest Alexander has been steadily evolving its accessories and tailored business since 2009 into the definitive American menswear brand for the next generation: born out of necessity and cut from tradition with the entrepreneurial spirit, sheer perseverance and contemporary eye of one Ernest Sabine, who grew up just outside of Boston summering in Cape Cod, attended an all-boys school and picked up a few tricks of the trade from his seamstress grandmother and great-grandmother. The brand didn’t come immediately, however. After Boston Sabine pursued a BA in Art History and a MBA from Columbia, then landed in the creative department at Laird + Partners. A quest for the perfect men’s bag then led to the idea for his own men’s accessories label. Shifting gears from corporate branding to product design, Sabine launched Ernest Alexander in 2009 beginning with his now ubiquitous signature messenger bag. Since then, the label has grown into a complete lifestyle brand comprising clothing, shirting, denim and tailored suiting, conceived in the vein of “new American luxury” with all of his products manufactured in the USA. Here, our recent conversation with the rising star of American designer menswear.

M: Ernest, you’ve come a long way from your bags. What’s it like to be growing into a full lifestyle brand?
