Michael Allen Harris is a denim detective. And no, we’re not talking Sherlock Holmes clad in a Canadian tuxedo. When the weekend hits, Harris ditches his paint cans and drop cloth to explore old mines in hopes of unearthing some super rare denim. The jeans he digs up are from the old West and have been valued up to $100,000. He makes it tempting to get in on the action. We just hope this doesn’t start the Great Blue Jeans Rush of 2014.

Finding a belt that fits exactly right when your weight fluctuates is impossible–unless you’re wearing a Mission Belt. Mission Belts use a unique ratchet buckle that adjusts every 1/4″, which means a comfortable, easy-to-adjust fit every time. Their full-grain Italian leather collection includes seven options, so there’s a good-looking, high-quality Mission Belt for every occasion. As if that wasn’t enough, $1 from every belt sold goes to their “Mission” of fighting poverty with micro loans through a partnership with Kiva. To date, they’ve loaned over $4.1 million in over 75 countries. Fits perfectly. Fights poverty.
