Mizzen + Main: Apparel For Gentlemen

2019 best holiday gift ideas for men Mizzen and Main

Mizzen + Main has been my #1 brand for button-down shirts over the past few years because there’s simply not another brand out there that can compete with them.

There’s not even another brand in the conversation, that’s how much better Mizzen+Main is than the competition. Here we see three offerings, The Draper, The Manhattan, and The Stanton pullover. These are lightweight, machine washable, wrinkle-free, and built to keep up with your active lifestyle.

Some Items To Ask Santa Claus For

best everyday carry gear Christmas wishlist ideas

First up, we’ve got the 47mm ‘Whiskey Barrel’ watch from Original Grain isn’t just a random name, the wood on this watch is actually sourced from reclaimed American Oak Bourbon Barrels. It is powered by a precise Japanese Miyota Citizen Quartz movement and housed in a 316L Brushed Espresso Stainless Steel case. This stylish watch can fit with pretty much everything in your closet other than a tuxedo and it’s sure to turn some heads.

Next we see the Olukai Hawai’Ilao Manu Ihu boots. These are probably my favorite leathers released in recent memory. I’ve been rocking these for a few weeks now and they are amongst the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned. They look perfect with jeans and chinos. The upper is made from a soft nubuck leather, the lightweight compression molded EVA midsole feels great, and the supportive single-density poured PU anatomical footbed has a microfiber cover that’s moisture-wicking and odor-absorbant.

Canadian Club ‘Chronicles’ 42-Year-Old

Canadian Club 42-year-old

Canadian Club

Canadian Club has just announced the second release in their iconic Chronicles (premium) series and this is a 42-year-old Canadian whiskey that’s poised to blow everyone away this holiday season. Clocking in at 90-proof, it has a rich aroma of rye spice, oak, and caramel. On the tongue, you’ll feel waves of warmth as this 42-year-old washes over your mouth and releases complex flavors of brown sugar, spices, and toffee.

Announced in a recent release, this definitely has my taste buds buzzing.

Batched and barreled more than four decades ago, Canadian Club 42 Year Old is masterfully blended to showcase robust rye spice, delicate notes of brown sugar and baking spices to create an exceptionally rich, smooth taste. As a result, this exquisite marque leaves fans with the complex, yet rich flavor profile Canadian Club is best known for.

This bottle has a recommended price of $299.95 which puts it in the upper echelon of how much you’re willing to spend on a holiday gift but if the gift is for you or someone who loves whiskey this will be money well spent.

‘The Bootleg Series’ From Bob Dylan’s Heaven’s Door Whisky

Heaven's Door Bootleg Series Bob Dylan Whiskey

Heaven's Door

Listen up, my dudes, because the release of this exquisite spirit fuses two of your favorite things: music and whiskey. Bob Dylan’s Heaven’s Door Spirits announced the inaugural release of The Bootleg Series. The first expression sounds out of this f’n world good. I have a sample on my home bar waiting to be tasted just as soon as I kick this cold so I’ll definitely report back on that once I regain my tastebuds.

The limited-edition Bootleg Series features ‘a rare 26-year old whisky finished in Japanese Mizunara Oak barrels’ that’s being dubbed as Volume 1. Each of the handmade ceramic bottles will feature artwork from one of Dylan’s best-known paintings, Train Tracks, and the bottle will come housed in a gorgeous protective leather case. Bottled at 111.5-proof, the ‘signature flavors from the Mizunara Oak barrels’ are able to shine through due to the low Rye mashbill. It carries complex notes of coconut, incense, and coriander with a smooth, long finish that’s often characteristic of Japanese whiskeys.

Due to this being released in extremely limited quantities, it’s all but certain to be a quick sell out. Luckily, you can pre-order your bottle on ReserveBar‘s website by following that ‘shop now’ link below.


Baker’s Bourbon 107-Proof Single Barrel

Baker's Bourbon Single Barrel

Cass Anderson

Some exciting news this Fall coming from the Baker’s Bourbon Team is news that their signature 107-proof Bourbon aged a minimum of 7-years will now become exclusively a single barrel release. This means the nuance and complexity of each barrel will be able to shine through in the best of ways.

To kick off this pivot to Single Barrel, Baker’s Bourbon has released an all-new bottle (pictured above), closure, and label with information on the warehouse each bottle was aged in and the date it was barreled. Baker’s Bourbon was the Mona Lisa of Baker Beam, the grand-nephew of Jim Beam and a 6th generation Beam family distiller. Throughout his 38-years at the Beam family distilleries he was known for his charisma and this Single Barrel is said to be a celebration of his individuality. To find a bottle you can hit that ‘shop now’ button below and use their product locator.

Dope Kicks

you bros need to get on board with DopeKicks and I really mean this. You’ve heard me harp on in the past about how Portugal is the world’s epicenter for shoemaking right now and this is 100%.
