Olivers’ claim to fame is that they “make premium athletic staples reimagined for the 21st century.” That’s a pretty apt description of their growing line of quality casual wear. I love their Passage Pants, and the new Olivers Stadium Shirt Jacket I received for review has already become one of my favorite pieces of clothing this fall.
A good pair of shorts should look good, be comfortable and be tough enough to take whatever your warm-weather activities can throw at them. The LIVSN Flex Canvas Shorts cover all those bases and more. I’ve worn them hiking, mowing the lawn, and out to dinner. They were up to it all. That makes them my favorite shorts right now.
While working from home last year, I found a new appreciation for clothing that is also both comfortable and durable. Now, as I prepare to return to the office, I’m building a smaller wardrobe filled with exactly that. I’m focused on comfort and durability; the Olivers Apparel Passage Pant is part of that new “uniform.”
“I’d like a shirt made from old soda bottles and coffee grounds,” said no one ever. That is, until Coalatree, purveyors of “Eco-Minded Goods,” created their Switchback Shirt. At $79.99, the Coalatree Switchback Shirt is not inexpensive, but it’s an unusual shirt with a lot going for it. Available in several colors, the Switchback Shirt is currently on sale for just $67.99.
During the pandemic, Raina and I knew we needed to spend more time outside. We began hiking on the reservation near our home with our mini golden doodle Nava. The first few times, we didn’t have the right gear; now we do. Here’s a look at the hiking gear that we’ve come to depend on.
Do you give much thought to what your underwear is made from? I’ve mostly thought in terms of “these are comfy” or “these aren’t comfy,” and that was usually the extent of it. WAMA Underwear wants you to consider that your underwear, like everything else, has a bigger environmental footprint than you realize, and the answer is to make your underwear out of hemp!
In 2015, I reviewed the All Over Shorts, a pair of reenvisioned gym shorts from a new company named Olivers Apparel. The company has updated the All Over Shorts and has significantly increased its apparel offerings since then. In 2015, Olivers All Over Shorts were $68; they still are, but now they’re better than ever.
Smartglasses have been a bit of a solution in search of a problem. It seems somewhat obvious that there’s this untapped space on people’s faces that could be filled with technology, but it’s been hard to figure out what, if anything, is enhanced by people needing to utter the phrase “hold up, I gotta go charge my glasses.” Eyeglasses+headphones are a natural fit, but early attempts were bulky, ugly, and expensive. Fauna Audio Glasses are affordable, attractive, and don’t scream, “hello, I have giant speaker-glasses.” Are eyeglasses really improved by the addition of headphones? Read on to find out!
As a man, there’s not much worse when it comes to wearing boxers than when they ride up or get twisted. I recently had the chance to check out Beau Ties, a brand that aims to become your go-to pair regardless if you’re wearing them to the gym or on date night
Attempting to be more active doesn’t require much, but what if I told you the one item that people fail to include when they start going to the gym again is a solid pair of socks?
The HOMI Pro Jacket is currently on Kickstarter. The project has already passed its goal, but there are still a few days left for those who want to get in on this project at substantial savings compared to what it will cost at retail. I was sent an early version and am pleased to share some initial thoughts.
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 it adjusted?
In my decade-long career as a food, drink and travel writer, I’ve learned to really appreciate the value of versatile, intelligently designed travel clothing. Believe me, I’ve tried all sorts of potential solutions before I settled on my new go-to brand, Bluffworks.
With winter “almost” behind us and Spring right around the corner, I was looking for a light jacket that I could wear on those cooler days and nights, and I think I may have found it with Outdoor Vitals LoftTek Down Jacket.
TOBE, or not TOBE…prepared for all of your skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling adventures. That is no longer a question. Thanks to TOBE (pronounced Toe-Bee), backcountry athletes now have a full line of stylish, functional, and high-quality clothing to keep them protected from the elements. TOBE has created gear for activities including snowmobiling, snowbiking, skiing, and everyday wear.
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.
One of the hardest things for working out for me, especially when playing running or even playing Basketball is protecting my Achilles and ankles from eventually hurting. I’ve looked high and low for solutions, yet the best that I have found are Lasso’s Compression Socks.
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 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.
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!
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.
