Approved: Selvedge Denim Jeans

Jeans are much more than another pair of pants to most guys; they're a uniform. They're durable, comfortable, and they look good with just about every other piece of clothing. Selvedge (see also: Self-Edge or Selvage, they all mean the same thing) denim jeans are close to indestructible, which makes them worth investing ... continue reading

Decoded: Jägermeister

In fact, a lot of the Jägermeister tale is displayed right on the label. Here is a breakdown of what it all means. ... continue reading

Deus Ex Machina is a name you're probably familiar with. They do everything from motorcycles to clothing and they do it all really well. What you might not be familiar with is the fact that Deus has physical outposts throughout the world filled with what we can only describe as testosterone filled shopping porn. You ... continue reading

Heritage: Jason Jones

This is my "Bailey" Jointer Plane. It dates somewhere in the early 1900's (pre-1935 for sure). Belonged to my great grandfather Sterling Jones. It's not worth much other than the sentimental value. Love the simplicity of the design and the used patina of the steel and wood. He was a Freemason and I think these ... continue reading

The Game of Thrones Sex Infographic

To say there’s some sex in Game of Thrones would be a ridiculous understatement. It’s like saying there’s some nudity in Hustler. The show that’s always poised to kill off a character, is also always up for an impromptu orgy or two. We charted out all the hook-ups from the first three seasons so you could easily ... continue reading

Inside VooStore Berlin

On our recent trip to Berlin, we had the pleasure of stopping by VooStore. Voo is located in the cultural and creative heart of Central Kreuzberg, on the grounds of an old locksmith shop. With no major street signs, tucked away in a small square, Voo might not be the easiest place to find, but that’s all part of ... continue reading

Heritage: Greg Cordeiro

Given the field that I have chosen, I don't really get 'dressed up' too much. When I do, I relish the chance to get to wear my grandfathers old tie clip that was handed down to me after he passed away. I have no idea of its origin and significance to him personally, but to me it has become a small reminder of how to ... continue reading

Current Obsession: Old Medicine Bottles

Before every pill came in an orange-tinted bottle with a white cap, they were dispensed in small glass numbers with sharp little labels. They often treated minor problems in ways that now seem crazy. “Oh, your child has a cough? Here’s some heroin.” Now those bottles, if you can find them, sport a worn appearance ... continue reading

Heritage: Andrew Brodrick

Since I couldn’t choose my wife, kids or my French Bulldog, I choose my latest surfboard, which I received from our marketing director’s husband, Florian Saylor, who is a shaper in Los Angeles. The purpose in starting Freenote was to create an apparel company with a heartbeat where we all know exactly where the ... continue reading

Heritage: Joe Sadler

This is a 1938 Gibson Mastertone passed down from my father last year with a case that has been covered in Bill Monroe Bluegrass stickers and tickets since the mid 70's. My mother actually went into labor with me while they were at the show in 1979. I used to sit in the case listening to my parents jam at house parties ... continue reading
