Aside from Burberry I don't put a lot designer brands on the blog but I have a weakness for belts especially leather belts with equestrian hardware. I tend to keep leather belts on rotation and my canvas belts in the recent years have been getting less wear time. Lately I keep seeing on magazine advertisements Gucci Canvas Web Belt with the Bee Buckle. This belt is a perfect combination of the uniqueness of the leather equestrian belts that I usually wear with the comfort of a canvas web belt. Signature Web canvas belt with a unfinished faded leather trim and our plaque buckle with embossed bee detail.Green/red/green cotton canvas Web with brown faded leather detail. The belt is made in Italy.The belt looks great when worn with solid colors in my opinion.The belt retails for $395.

A mocassin that looks great without putting a hole in your bank account is the L.L. Bean Signature Jackman Blucher Moc. I own a pair of Blucher mocs and they are very comfortable from the first day you wear them.I do recommend sizing down half a inch. The mocassins feature full grain leather and a molded sole. I'm seriously considering adding another pair to my shoe collection. They look great regardless if you are wearing corduroys, jeans or khakis.Available now in three color options.

Now women will no reason to borrow SoPro clothes from the guys! Southern Proper put in a lot of hard work into designing the collection for women which looks great! It has that timeless but fun style that we all love about the brand! Check out the collection now

Even though I'm pretty organized with my wallet and card holder. In the business of real estate you exchange your business card very frequently.On the daily basis my pockets look very similar to George Constanza from Seinfield. I'm obsessed with Bison Made snap pouch in Navy. The snap pouch makes for a great business card case. It can also be used as a wallet to hold cash and credit cards. A versatile everyday carry item, this design was inspire by a WWI era military issued "khaki set". Made with Horween Leather; with 100 year old formulas and an old world style of craftsmanship, Horween has been making the finest leathers for over a century.
Crescent Down Works earlier did a collaboration with Freeman Seattle.Crescent Down Works I have huge admiration and respect for. They make their down jacket the highest quality possible. The good news that I have is that the down vest are on sale only thing you have to hope that you can fit a extra small or small. Freeman Seattle used the classic The Italian Vest from Crescent Down Works.
|In the L.L.Bean Catalog since 1925|
Looking at an old L.L. Bean Catalog before going to sleep. I came across to what's left of LL Bean 1941 Fall Catalog. The highlight has to be the Hudson's Bay Blankets. The Hudson Bay Point Blanket has been in the L.L. Bean catalog since 1925. This heritage striped wool blanket is practically windproof and water-repellent to keep you warm and dry. It will last a lifetime, according to Leon Leonwood Bean himself, who always kept one on hand (even in his car). Back in 1941 we were in the middle of a war, L.L. Bean was aware of a shortage since the wool came from England. L.L. Bean was carrying large quantities to protect its customers.

Why not start the year right with durable, quality canvas canoe pack from Duluth? Duluth is a familiar name at the wonderful StayCrispyMyFriends website. The original #2 Original Duluth Pack canoe pack has been the time tested favorite for discerning individuals who demand rugged durability and uncompromising value. Made in Olive Drab or Waxed Canvas. All other colors made to order. Made for the rugged trail, yet elegant enough for a complete different environment. The canoe back makes a great backpack if you work in an office. I really like the design of the canoe back because of its simplicity, it doesn't have all the additional pockets compare to backpacks.
