If less is more, the Porsche 911R might be everything. The German automaker took the 4-liter engine from the GT3 RS and matched it to a six-speed manual transmission. It threw out the back seats and air conditioner, and used carbon fiber to bring the car's weight down to just over 3,000 pounds. The result is a $184,900 car that will go to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and likely be an absolute thrill to drive Continue reading

via Homespun socks are some of softest, most comfortable work socks I think I’ve owned. The secret is in the predominantly cotton construction, with added wool for warmth and just enough synthetic material to keep them returning to their original shape. They look just like a classic pair of work socks, but are far removed in texture from the scratchy varieties we’re all surely familiar with. Homespun Dustbowl Work Socks Continue reading

via I’ve been following the Japanese reproductions of Brown’s Beach products ever since I tried on one of the vests a few years ago. Anyone who has experienced the brand's signature wool and cotton blended fabric will know there isn’t anything else like it. They've now created a thick black chesterfield coat out of the inimitable material and the results are simply fantastic. This is a piece of outerwear that will last for decades, and remain as appealing as ever season after season. Brown's Beach Solid Black Chesterfield Coat Continue reading

via It seems that whenever a new Ten C coat or jacket is released it climbs to the top of my favourite outerwear list almost immediately. That’s basically how I feel having seen this down jacket. The brand’s designs are always exceptional, anchored in understated styling and first-rate construction. Plus, the triangular stitching on the neck flap in this instance is incredible. They’ve made a few brighter colours in this style, but when it comes to wearability, you can’t go wrong with navy. The Ten C Arctic Down Parka is constructed from a water-repellent polyester blend with down feather... Continue reading

via I’m astounded that Corona hasn’t been picked up by any stockists in Europe or North America – not that I know of at least.

This nylon taffeta jacket has a vintage hiking feel that is both utilitarian and unique, amounting to a well-styled outer layer that can be easily worn over a heavyweight wool sweater.
