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 in. Over time, they’ll fade and whisker based on what you’re doing in them and how frequently you’re wearing them. They’ll age gracefully, like a fine wine or scotch. Here are some of our favorite options in a bunch of different price ranges.

  • Gustin – $100
  • Flint and Tinder- $110
  • A.P.C. New Standard – $150
  • Rogue Territory Stantons – $220
  • Baldwin The Henley- $220
  • Samurai Jeans S710XX – $350

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
