By their own admission, Norway based Johnny Love fuses the fundamental elements of classic menswear with the modern streetwear sensibilities of today. The results are futuristic yet timeless, bold and adventurous yet still and confident with a heavy slant towards military-inspired creations like the jacket pictured. Johnny Love’s designs clothes not merely to make you look fantastic, but designs them to perform as well. By performing well I do not mean holding up after a few washes either. Johnny Love fuses their garments with nanotechnology that essentially makes this jacket waterproof, flame-retardant and wind resistant. Part of the Johnny Love 2011 Spring / Summer collection, this jacket has fabulous buttons, drapes the body well and is a perfect weight for sunny days that are still a bit on the windy side.
You just found out that one of your friends was struck by love somewhere between the New Year’s and March Madness and is now getting married. You’re invited to the wedding (of course) but you will need a proper suit to attend, and not anything you would wear to work or a funeral. You’re not looking to star in a Wedding Crashers sequel, but you don’t want to sit twiddling your thumbs at the wedding reception either.
Besides a quick refresher on etiquette, a bespoke Kilgour suit can do the trick and keep your evening chock full of surprises, a la the Hangover, but without the ruffies. In fact, aside from the suits worn by Daniel Craig (and others) as James Bond, the Kilgour suit worn by Cary Grant in the 1959 film North by Northwest is one of the most celebrated and talked about suits in film.
Taking almost two weeks to complete, roughly 100 hours or so, Kilgour tailors each bespoke suit to your exact specifications and measurements. Intricate details assure that you will have a suit as unique as you are and the entire process is done entirely at the Kilgour shop by one tailor on the legendary Savile Row.
Oh, you are not in London. If you are not traveling in London nor have any plans to be there anytime in the near future, you are in luck. Kilgour sends their love, skill and tradition across the Atlantic, and will have their tailors in the US during April (N.Y., Chicago, L.A. and San Francisco) and May (N.Y., DC, Dallas and Houston) for their limited spring schedule.
The popularity of military inspired clothing has increased in recent years. This is traditionally the case whenever a country is involved in war. However, despite the political reasons for the shift in clothing design, military inspired clothing also looks damn good!

For your enjoyment Wolverine 1000 Mile boots are available in several colors and styles.
A boxer short that is white as milk, runs true to size and made from 400-count Pima cotton seems like a dream. Well it was a dream until Royal Highnies made these high quality boxers a reality.

After oogling over the Brookklands Hooded Rugby, I ventured over to the sale section of RL’s rugby.com only find more goodies. What better way to save during this global financial fiasco than to buy (when you need to) clothes on sale. For me, one highlight of the Ralph Lauren sale is the Clifton Waffle Crewneck. The shirt is simple and something that can work in your wardrobe plain or casual, dressed up or down and is also great foundation piece to build up from for a layered look. Other Ralph Lauren men’s sale items I spotted include Solid Fleece Hoodie, and several longsleeve rugby shirts.
