PREVIEW /// MAN OF THE HOUR: JUSTIN BRIDGES
On the last day of March, Eric and I traveled to unfamiliar territory to meet with Justin Bridges (I honestly can’t remember the last time I had been above 59th street). The weather was frigid and the rain pelted our faces but Justin’s cool demeanor and laid back style made us feel more like we were just hanging with the fellas at an old friend’s apartment. Check back tomorrow for the full interview.
The Hudson British Tan wax messenger is made from durable wax canvas, a naturally water shedding fabric that develops a rich patina with age. This bag features a wider 2” leather shoulder strap that gives extra support across the shoulder. The riveted leather handle allows it to be carried like a brief. A back storage sleeve, interior laptop sleeve and plenty of extra pockets make this the perfect bag for all your organizing and carrying all your needs from workday to weekend.
Ernest Alexander - Brave New World Menswear Presentation
“Our Fall 2012 collection was inspired by the first Alpine explorers, men whose sportswear still maintained a sartorial sense of style. Further inspiration came from English dandies like George “Beau” Brummel and Fitzwilliam Darcy’s Edwardian style of dressing. I also looked back at my days at a New England all-boys prep school where coats and ties were the norm. This collection marks a new beginning for our line as we venture from the world of accessories to ready-to-wear, dressing our man from head to toe. We’re featuring double pocketed blazers made from British wool, finely tailored vests and selvedge denim jeans that are easily dressed up or down. It’s been even more of an adventure as we maintain our commitment to manufacturing in America and seeking out the best craftsmen that still work within a few miles of our New York studio.” - Ernest
Thanks for the invitation Ernest Alexander. Also loving the Menswear Whiskey. Hope its Jameson.

Ernest Alexander - The Nylon Collection
I had the opportunity to stop into E.A.’s Studio a few weeks back and they showed me their new collection that was just released. The manufacturer that happens to make these also make the nylon bags used by the U.S. Military so the quality and durability is going to be there. This collection is actually quite attractive in a way that its very hybrid, it looks great in street wear and it can also be carried around in suit and still look good (as seen above). These are definitely worth checking out.
