Vans-Flannel-Insole-Zapata-Del-Barcos

It’s been a long time since we lived in a world when a man couldn’t appreciate a quality pair of shoes as much as a woman. Cards on the table, we probably actually own more pairs than she does and it doesn’t bother us one bit. We like looking good. When did that become a crime? Even though there are lots of loafers, oxfords and boots, sneakers and their more casual brethren will always make up the largest portion of our collection. It should come as no surprise then that Vans make an appearance on more than one occasion. Vans take on boat shoes, the Zapata Del Barco, is available in a standard off the rack configuration and also as part of numerous collaborations. Adding to their slightly “rough around the edges” collection of Zapata Del Barcos, Vans has three new pairs with flannel insoles. The only decision you have to make is black, navy or gray.

Gerber-Pocket-Square-Linerlock-1_1024x1024

A pocket square is a touch of old school class. It’s an element that casually lets people know you’re a gentleman. This knife from Gerber borrows its name from the humble pocket square because it too is sharp and dressy. Eschewing superfluous design elements for a sleek, clean appearance, the Gerber Pocket Square Knife is refined and mature. The machined aluminum handle is paired with a 3” drop point blade and an ambidextrous thumb lift for one stunning folder. If James Bond relied on a pocket knife, this would be it.
