Lately, we’ve been noticing an interesting new trend developing: a few of our favorite tipple-makers have been teaming up with some menswear labels to handsome results.
It all started when we heard Johnnie Walker was teaming up with Harris Tweed Hebrides to make scotch-infused tweed. Then they launched a pair of Blake-stitched brogues. Then Cutty Sark commissioned a pair of minimalist leather sneakers. Then Boodles Gin unveiled a handsome new line of extra-fine merino scarves... and suddenly a new trend was born.
Now that the pleasantries of our introduction to fall are over, it’s time to get serious.

And today, we’re revising our stance once more to include the glorious celebration of a fabric that we rely on so dearly during the fall and winter months but won’t see much of for the next six or so. Like most of these holidays, the founding is dubious at best—but ultimately, it feels like a good enough reason to give the rugged wools a proper farewell until we meet again.
