Hook and Albert Leather Garment Weekender Bag Review

via hookandalbert.com

via hookandalbert.com

If you are a consultant, travel is a huge part of life, from the point challenges to the specific order you unload your pockets in the security line, to the way you pack. Traditional carry-ons, while easy to roll around, tend to wrinkle the crap out of your shirts and suits. That’s where a garment bag like this one from Hook and Albert comes in. This Garment Weekender unzips completely, allowing you to lay two suits and a couple of shirts flat, reducing wrinkles, and store a pair of shoes in the sides. The bag then zips back up into a weekender duffle shape, providing more room for your other items like underwear, socks, ties, etc. Plus, this weekender has easy access pockets on the outside for your electronics, and fits nicely into an overhead, so you don’t have to check it (God forbid). The leather construction keeps everything dry, and elevates the look. So if you’re tired of running a hot shower for 4 hours when you get to your hotel, only to have to iron anyway, a change in your luggage could do the trick.

Meater Wireless Thermometer Review

Nothing is better than being in the shadow of your college stadium, the drinks are on ice, and meat is on the grill. That being said, cooking during a tailgate takes a lot of concentration. Old friends and new comers are stopping by constantly, saying thanks for the beer, trying to discuss this year's O-line, all while you are trying to not burn the burgers, steaks, or pieces of chicken on the grill. Quell your worries with this bluetooth-enabled meat thermometer by Meater. It connects to an app on your phone allowing you to monitor your meat from the cooler rather than slaving away over top of the grill.

Rag & Bone Fit 2 Chinos in Stone Review

via bloomingdales.com

via bloomingdales.com

Listen, these will likely get the most attention from the aforementioned self-proclaimed fantasy fashion officer Brittany because we are still past Labor Day and these are pretty white. These are however, technically "Stone." So you can once again tell Brittany to lay off. While we have never seen a stone this white, it fits our criteria for the week, and these chinos are pretty great. There is a reason Rag & Bone has become the preferred "step up" from the J. Crew's and Banana's for many millennials. Quality, and fit. They made their way to popularity partially due to their chinos, and these are their most popular fit, in a color that you can wear all Spring, Summer, and Fall, making it well worth the investment.

Converse X Comme Des Garcon High Top Play Review

While the tag technically says "white" they are really just white canvas, meaning they're just a bit warmer than true white. This Comme Des Garçon play on the classic converse high top is fun, playful, trendy, and different than what you'll find everywhere on the street. They will dirty a little fast, but that's totally fine, and expected. Don't baby these, just go out, have a good time, and see who notices.

J.Crew Slub Cotton Henley Review

Labor Day has come and passed, marking the unofficial end of summer. With that comes the start of the snarky comment "don't you know you can't wear white after Labor Day?" Thanks Brittany, we get it.

In order to quell Brittany's sass we have collected a few items that aren't technically white, but close so you can yell at Brittany "It's not technically white Brit, so back off I look good!" To kick us off, an oatmeal colored slub cotton henley from J.crew. This will be a Fall standard as a stand alone top or in a layer scheme. Pair with browns and black and greens and blues, and most other colors because it's oatmeal, but can basically function as white, Brittany.
