Honestly handcrafted by Astray Goods Co. Simple Rolltops just crafted the way they used to be crafted. Solid built with 16oz Bees Waxed canvas, thick sturdy 3.5mm leather straps, and solid cast brass hardwares. Basic, solid, but it is pretty heavy at 1.5KG empty. Oh, and they are all guaranteed for life.
Do you ever find yourself in front of your computer and ready to purchase some great joggers (according to the reviews) but then you start to question if they would be long enough? or, if they are wide enough?
For all of you big boys out there is a solution to the anxiety of not knowing if these joggers would fit or not.
Altussen is a somewhat new brand in the market, their joggers are specially made for people who are taller than the 5 feet 10 inches average. Altussen joggers vary in length from 45.5 inches to 46.9 inches and their hip range from 42.5 inches to 44.8 inches.
Altussen pants are not only guarantee to fit, but they are also high quality pants with a composition of 95% cotton and 5% elastane. They are manufactured in Ecuador, where conscious manufacturing is visible: companies like Altussen ensure to share 15% of their profits with their workers, provide health care, and also contribute an equal amount as their workers to their pension fund.
Perfect year around...
Curious about experiences with this classic. Cautious to order online if the fit isn't great...though it seems they can be returned within 45 days (except for custom boots).
Fit: Online comments suggest ordering a size 10, for example, rather than 10.5 (as a typical ideal fit). How about width? Is a standard D actually D width or slightly narrower or wider? D and 3E seem to be the only width options.
Models: So many.... Any advice/preferences/etc. in picking the style? An attempt at summarizing *boot* style variations:
Original -- including a leather sole...
Evans -- grippy sole, otherwise original style?
Addison Wingtip -- fanciest?
Rockford Cap-toe -- fancier...
Harwell Chukka -- lower cut & fancier...
Montague Chelsea -- slip-ons & grippy sole
Courtland -- grippy sole & boxier toe??
'Cortado' -- full Vibram sole
I'll likely go for the Original, though the Evans is also appealing. Are leather or rubber soles 'better'?
Color: How do the various color options wear...
We're very excited to announce the very first product line from Firsthand Supply's rebrand!
FHS has been a great partner for us for the past few years, we're so happy for their recent relaunch/remake of a classic community favorite. I want to share some of the rebranding and production convos we've had with FH:
MD: Tell us about the new Firsthand Supply!
FH: We are building a company that values people on both sides of the transaction. From how we source the ingredients and materials used in our products to our commitment to closed loop sustainable practices; everything we say, do, and make supports that truth.
In our pursuit to create the best hair products on the globe, our aim is to become the most human-centric consumer brand through honest sourcing, sustainable process, and a heavy dose of give-a-damn. Why? Because we believe people matter, so we make stuff that matters.
MD: What is the major difference in the new packaging...
Anyone else interested in an Obscure brand belt drop?
I have no idea if Obscure would be interested in partnering with Drop, but I think their style of belts might be a good fit for the Drop community. If you aren't familiar with them, they're a Wisconsin product with unique claps mechanisms instead of traditional buckles. You attach a metal stud at the belt hole for your size and then a clasp in the buckle grabs the stud. The tail of the belt is kept on the inside and because the leather is never threaded through buckle it tends to remain in good condition. They offer a lot of designs and several leather options to mix and match, have won several awards for design, and the belts are broadly unisex.
A Review of Solid State for Men's Wayfarer Solid Cologne
Solid State is a company that produces solid fragrances for men. I can’t find too much history on the company online, but they’re based in Australia, and produce a range of fragrances, body and face washes. Their major USP is the fact that their fragrances are ‘solid’, in some kind of a wax base, so the product should last longer, and is much more convenient for taking out and about with you, to ‘top-up’ (which according to almost every review I read), is a necessity.
But hey, these are the days of the metrosexual male, and there is absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t too become accustomed to pop off to the loo ‘to refresh’ our fragrance, just as women have been doing for years. Having been bombarded by their UK Facebook advertising campaign, I thought I would give it a go.
So I placed an order from their website. I thought I’d play it safe, and go for the variant which has attracted the most positive reviews, ‘Wayfarer’, which is ‘inspired’ by Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille, which...
I used to enjoy checking the style shop and find SAXX, Darn Tough, PARC City shoes, etc. I haven't seen these brands lately and have noticed a decline in the variety of offers in the style community. Is there not enough demand for these products or is there some other issue in getting more than belts and denim offerings there?
