It’s Wedding Season, Do You Have Your ModernTies?

If you’re like me, one thing you dread about most weddings as a guy is the need for ties. Having essentially a collar around your neck is already a hassle, on top of the need to wear a tie under that fabric is a bit much. But what If I told you that a company wants to diversify your tie game, without the need to pop your collar to get…

The Kora Xenolith Sweater Features a Merino-Yak Wool Blend You’ll Love

The trouble with winter is that whenever you want to keep warm outside, you feel like you need to bundle up in thick, heavy sweaters and coats. Kora decided to do something about that with their new Xenolith sweater that’s made out of a blend of Merino wool and Yak wool, which provides a high warmth to weight ratio.


DeadSoxy’s Socks Are a Great No-Show Experience for Low-Cut Shoes

I’m not a huge fan of socks if I don’t have to wear them, especially with low-cut shoes like Vans or TOMS. However, I do not enjoy smelly feet or athlete’s foot so I tend to wear no-show socks a lot. There are many brands that make them, but not all are created equally. And then there’s DeadSoxy.


Showers Pass Outfits the Entire Family Year Round

Showers Pass has the whole family equipped for all seasons and every weather condition. They were nice enough to send my wife and me some outerwear to try out now that Fall is upon us, the Men’s Trailhead Bamboo-Merino Hoodie and the Women’s Rogue Hoodie. Both demonstrate the high quality that Showers Pass has become known for.


Olivers Passage Pants Are Pricey but Oh So Comfortable!

I’m not one to spend a lot on clothes. When I need new suits, I wait for a sale at Joseph A. Bank. When I need new casual clothes, I wait for a sale at the Gap. But, after getting the $158 Passage Pant from Olivers Apparel, I was reminded that you often get what you pay for!


Waterhoody Will Shield You from the Sun’s Harmful Rays

Sun-kissed skin may make you look healthy but as we know, excessive exposure to the sun can cause irreparable damage. As a parent, I try my best to protect my children’s skin from the sun by using highly rated EWG sunscreen and SPF clothing, which is why Waterhoody is now one of my essential summer items.

Protect and Free Your Feet with Xero Shoes!

Several years ago, “minimalism” was in for running shoes. Companies were falling all over each other to make thin-soled shoes. That fad has mostly passed, for better or worse, but the companies left standing are the ones making high quality, truly excellent footwear. Xero Shoes is one of them, and we’ve been testing their Z-Trek Sandals on many adventures!


Add a Bit of Flair to Your Outfit with ODD SOX

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge fan of what could be considered “funny” socks. I vividly remember having a pair of socks in High School I purchased from Spencer’s with a wacky phrase on them that I would wear in the summer that stood out against the typical black or white socks you’d see in the Targets or Wal-Mart’s of the world.



Nova LED Jacket Marries Safety with Style!

I used to do a lot of early morning runs when I was training for half marathons. Once, I was staying with my parents, and my mother ran into me as I was headed out while it was still dark. She looked over my reflective gear and the headlamp I had over my hat and remarked, “Be safe, you look like a lost miner.”

You’ll Love Wearing Olivers’ Terminal Tech Tee

When I’m not working, my “uniform” of choice is a pair of jeans or shorts and a monochrome t-shirt from either Express or the Banana Republic. Those t-shirts are made largely from cotton; they’re soft and wear well but need to be washed after every wear. The Terminal Tech Tee from Olivers takes a different approach, and I’m rather pleased.



Tavik Interface System is the Only Outerwear You’ll Need

It got cold here in New Jersey last week. Fortunately, I was armed with a review sample of Tavik’s new Interface system. This isn’t just a jacket. And it isn’t just a series of outerwear. No, the Tavik Interface system is truly an outerwear system That offers a ton of features and is ready for pretty much any weather.


A Skeptic’s Review of ActiveEdge Gear

When I first heard about Active Edge, I was skeptical. Carly had written about them some time ago, and her review left me curious. When I was offered an Active Edge shirt to try, I wasn’t sure what my experience might be. This post holds my subjective thoughts on the product.
