A Guide to Levi's Numbers

Levi Strauss & Co. manufactures some of the highest quality jeans in the world. But believe it or not, they weren’t always in the clothing business. When they were founded in 1853, Levi Strauss & Co. was a simple drygoods store. Although it sold denim patches to custome...

Mott & Bow's New Shirt Is Made With Fabric From a 187-Year-Old Mill

Mott & Bow's New Shirt Is Made With Fabric From a 187-Year-Old Mill

To make the best shirt you need the best fabric. That’s why Mott & Bow turned to Albiate, a famous Italian mill that’s been in operation since 1830. The 100% cotton fabric they sourced for their slim button-down makes it light and ideal for summer and fall. It’s what the weather calls for. Cut to be worn tucked or untucked, it’s a dress shirt that moves beyond the office, allowing you to look sharp wherever your day takes you. And since Mott & Bow only stocks six staple colors, they can keep the price down, meaning neither you nor your bank account will be sweating.

Mission Belt: Fits Perfectly. Fights Poverty.

Mission Belt: Fits Perfectly. Fights Poverty.

We’ve never found a belt that fit exactly right. With holes every inch, they are always a bit too loose or a bit too tight. Mission Belt solved this problem, with a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″. That means a comfortable fit even when your weight fluctuates. There are plenty of styles to choose from but you can also go a la carte and mix and match buckles and straps. We’d be fans of Mission Belt even if that was all that was great about the product and the company, but the fact that a dollar from every Mission Belt sale goes to the “Mission” to fight global hunger and poverty is a huge plus in our book. By partnering with Kiva, Mission Belt has made over 67,000 microloans in more than 70 countries, totaling over $1.6 million in loans. Not a bad little bonus for buying a good-looking belt that will fit perfectly for years to come. And yeah… it’s the belt you saw on Shark Tank.
