On Veterans Day, we’re reminded of the great contributions our servicemen have made over the years.
Not only to our nation, but also to the way we dress—from peacoats to desert boots to the venerable field watch.
And since it happens to be Tuesday, we’re taking a closer look at the best of the handsomely utilitarian watches—inspired by the timepieces issued to officers in the field since World War I—on the market today…»

And when it comes to his fragrance…
It ought to be made by an exquisitely clothed man.
That man: Issey Miyake. Perhaps you’ve heard of him—he’s been creating handsome things for as long as anyone can remember, and the latest is Nuit d’Issey, a woodsy, spicy, leathery, bergamot-y potion formulated specifically with your evening endeavors in mind.
When it comes to our knitwear, if it was good enough for Hemingway, McQueen and ancient Irish fishermen it’s good enough for us.
Case in point: the fisherman sweater—or “Aran sweater” to the purists—a chunky-knit wool sweater with a pronounced cable knit. Back in the day, there might have even been a meaning or association linked to a specific knit design, much like tartan plaids, but today they’re just a good way to stave off a brisk morning and add some more texture to your getup.
The one and only Leonardo DiCaprio will celebrate his big 4-0 on Tuesday, so we’ve taken the liberty of rounding up some of his hottest dates over the years for your viewing pleasure.
Every Friday, we filter through all of the online sale noise and grade your best weekend sale-ing options out there, to bring you…
Not to get too apocalyptic on you, but… winter is coming.
And you ought to be prepared—your trusty jacket might need reproofing, your parka could probably use a bit more down fill and your leather shoes need to be steeled for the snow and salt that will be on the ground before you know it (just ask South Carolina).
