The Lion’s Share at Lyonstate

  • Najib Benouar

We’ve just got word that Alabama menswear shop Lyonstate is taking all of the handsomeness they’ve already got on their web shop, putting it on sale, and then slashing off an additional 25% (with the secret code “TAKE25”). Which puts some of these prices at the lowest we’ve seen for stuff from brands like Our Legacy (like this double-breasted blazer), Rachel Comey (like these oxford shoes) or Oliver Spencer (this fisher jacket, for instance) go for. There’s plenty more where that came from, so get after it, gentlemen.

Take a closer look at our favorites, after the jump.»

Deeply Felt


Rachel Comey has been a favorite of well-curated boutiques for some years now—especially Brooklyn standby Hollander & Lexer—but somehow she’s never gotten the name recognition she deserves. It’s a shame because, as you can see, she makes quite an oxford.

This pair, dubbed Uncle Dan Oxfords, are cobbled together from felt, placing them somewhere between a plimsoll and a flashier suede version. More importantly, it’s more or less guaranteed to be the only forest green item in your shoe collection, which should come in particularly handy the next time you decide to bust out that khaki suit.
