Wishlist: November

Large Plaid Peak Lapel Flannel Blazer  Wishlist: November

(Simon Spurr Large Plaid Peak-Lapel Flannel Blazer – This is not just a regular plaid jacket.  The fabric is truly unique.)

Cargo Pants Wishlist: November

(Gant by Michael Bastian Cargo Pants – It is no secret that I have a soft spot for olive green.  I wear my Uniqlo vintage chinos almost daily maybe these could replace them.)

Selvage Chambray Military Shirt  Wishlist: November

(Todd Snyder Selvage Chambray Military Shirt – This is Todd Snyder’s first season and they have been really making waves.  They make classic well made clothing that you can incorporate in your daily wardrobe.)

Lambswool Cardinal Sweater  Wishlist: November

(Gant by Michael Bastian Lambswool Cardinal Sweater – This sweater is one of my favorite pieces from the collection and it really stood out during the presentation last February.  It really is a cool sweater; chicks will dig it.)

Tanker Multi Pocket Backpack  Wishlist: November

(Porter Tanker Multi-Pocket Backpack – I need a new backpack…)

Anthracite Suede Long Wing Brogues  Wishlist: November

(Mark McNairy Anthracite Suede Long Wing Brogues – Last season, I missed out on getting a white buck with a similar sole.  The sole is really outstanding in person.)

Merino Wool Boot Socks Wishlist: November

(Richard James Merino Wool Boot Socks – You never can have too many socks.  Socks will always begin to wear in the heel and repairing them is usually a waste; just buy some new ones)

Pocket Square Wishlist: November

(The Tie Bar Pocket Square – This hand rolled cotton pocket square is only eight bucks; purchase like ten of them.)

gant MB Blazer Wishlist: November

(Gant by Micheal Bastian Prince of Wales Two-Button Blazer – The red glen plaid with the red elbow pads is a great combination.  The soft shoulders makes this a really comfy jacket)
