Thom Sweeney Wool-flannel Trousers

A good garment that is made to last will cost you more. It's a fact. With H&M and others making throw away garments, we are becoming accustomed to paying less for things, forgetting they will only last us 4 months. A smart gentleman looks passed the current, the now, and into the future, to make investments in his wardrobe. These gray wool trousers from Thom Sweeney are exactly that, an investment. Designed with a tailored fit and side tabs at the waist for a more body-conforming construction, these are pants that you will be able to wear for the next 5 winters. We suggest you sport these with brown leather shoes and a navy sport coat. Or, mix it up and go a little more casual by throwing on a navy cable knit sweater.

River Island Navy Knit Crew Neck Sweater

Via riverisland.com

Via riverisland.com

If you haven't heard of River Island, it's most likely because they haven't really made it to the states yet. But don't discount them, they are one of the premier clothiers on High Street in London. Their sweaters, or Jumpers, as the Brits call them, are super soft, mostly because they aren't made from cheap wool or cotton, or wool or cotton at all. They make their amazingly soft sweaters out of Acrylic, Elastane, and Nylon, just like that really soft Neff beanie you always tote around. This also makes them machine washable, and resistant to shrinking, which is great for the accidental "Oh no I put my wool sweater in the dryer and now it might as well be sold at Baby Gap" kind of moments. Pair this with light colored jeans or gray chinos for a stylish, yet comfortable look in the colder months.

Modern OM Wrist Mala Bracelet

Accessories can speak a lot about a person. How a man adds small nuances to his daily attire shows his attention to detail and, in essence, shows what he cares about. Adding a bracelet like this one from Modern OM is a great way to add warmth to a blue suit or green sweater while showing creativity and uniqueness through the addition of something special to everyday attire. If you are into meaning, this Wrist Mala represents passion. The red sandalwood beads are supposed to promote relaxation while the orange jade is said to stimulate creativity and sexuality. We can't say if there is any truth to this, but in the off chance it does work, that doesn't sound like a bad boost. If anything it could be a good conversation piece if noticed.

Go Ruck Gym Bag

Via GoRuck.com

We have all spent money on a gym bag that has lasted a month or less. The cause of the rapid deterioration of gym bags is no mystery, the wear and tear you put on your bag isn't the most gentle. The year-round, near daily use (hopefully) without regularly cleaning it takes its toll on standard fabrics and stitching. That's why we like this Go Ruck gym bag. Made in the USA from water resistant fabric and stress tested to hold 400 lbs, this bag is good for the long haul. Constructed with a 38L main compartment and 3 zipper pockets (2 outside, 1 inside), this bag is the perfect size to carry a change of clothes and have room for a water bottle, shoes and a light hoodie. Throw away the tattered free gym bag you got with your New Years membership, and check out one of these that will last you close to forever.

Organize your closet in style.

Nike Free RN Flyknits

The Flyknits were designed as a running shoe, meant to be unnoticed when worn, but in reality, they make a great, comfy street shoe laced with style.

Be comfy and look good, grab a pair.
