Montedoro Quilted Bomber Jacket

This thing is super gnarly. Made from quilted polyester, printed to look like tweed, this is a perfect fall coat. Triple patch pockets on a bomber isn’t something you see every day.

Awl & Sundry Handmade Custom Footwear

image

I haven’t been writing reviews on the blog lately, because there haven’t been many new products that I’ve been truly excited about experiencing first hand. As you can see, I’m reviewing Awl & Sundry now, and I’m definitely excited. 

We all know that custom menswear is huge right now. There are a number of new custom shirt and suit makers popping up every few months, whether they be online or brick and mortar shops. The risk is always the quality of the product, which varies very drastically. The same opportunities and risks have recently become present in the footwear market as well; however, Awl & Sundry has proven that quality isn’t an issue at all. These guys produce custom, handmade, full grain leather shoes, finished with a hand-sewn Goodyear welt. Every pair is made to order, and is customizable down to the last detail. 

The selection of options really impressed the hell out of me. There are five lasts to choose from, as well as four styles (derby, loafer, monkstrap, and oxford) to set as the base of your shoe. Once you pass the initial options, there are variety of options to add to the vamp, eye stay, toe, and foxing. After that, the full grain leather options are vast, including a variety of colors in plain calf, calf grain, calf suede, alligator, and ostrich. The laces and stitching are also color customizable, and all of the options I’ve listed above are intuitively visualized in a great 3D display that updates as you create your shoe online.

I posted a while ago that I had ordered a pair of custom, grain leather double monks, and I received them in the mail a few weeks ago. To my delight, they were absolutely beautiful. The quality of the leather was the first thing that I noticed, superbly smooth to the touch and visibly striking. The grain of the leather that I chose is subtle enough not to be overbearing but still present enough to make a distinction, and it was handled and stitched beautifully. The last really showed off the leather quite well, with a rounded toe and slim body. There were no visible flaws in the handwork on the shoes, including the Goodyear welt, and the shine and polish of the leather on the outer and sole were both on point.

Recent Pick-Up: Add Rain Coat

Somehow, I’ve been existing without a raincoat for almost a year now. My old one was left in a cab in Manhattan and never seen again. I just snagged this really gnarly coat with heavy tech/tailored vibes. It’s made by Italian label Add, a brand who is known for ultra-lightweight waterproof/resistant outerwear. I got this for just under a hundred bucks via Yoox, with the yooxcode: SUMMER15, which is valid until midnight tonight.
