Christopher Cloos x Brady Collection
Thinking back a year I could I simply could not imagine a world where Tom Brady would leave the New England Patriots and come play for my Tampa Bay Buccaneers and relieve me of Jameis Winston’s INTs every Sunday. If you told me that was a possibility I would’ve laughed in your face. But here we are. Me, flipping on my TV on Sundays to root for the G.O.A.T. and his gorgeous Christopher Cloos custom shades.
This collaboration between Brady and Cloos are made with biodegradable frames. Brady wanted to bring his eye for precision to this collection and the two parties came together for these gorgeous shades. There are 16 options in total which you can check out by hitting that ‘shop now’ button below!
Best Men’s Hoodies You Can Ask Santa For
I was first turned onto Fourlaps Hoodies when they did a collaboration with Peloton over a year ago (they recently did another) and I’ve loved their running shorts along with their hoodies. It’s my go-to hoodie in cold weather. The Fourlaps Rush Hoodie 2.0 ($98) and the Fourlaps Rush Pullover Hoodie 2.0 ($98) are both excellent options they just differ a bit stylistically so it’s up to a matter of personal preference. The Outerknown Sur Snap Hoodie ($128) is made from crazy soft French terry fabric.
The Patagonia Diamond Quilted Bomber Hoodie ($169) and the Arc’teryx Atom LT Hoodie ($259) are two heavy-duty options for when it gets cold out. These are shells as much as they are hoodies, offering warmth and protection from the elements while staying true to a hoodie fit and feel.

Dan Akroyd’s Crystal Head Onyx Vodka
I only recently learned that legendary actor/comedian Dan Akroyd was one of the creators behind Crystal Head Vodka, a vodka I’ve seen on shelves before and had taken notice of but didn’t really know much about. The story on Crystal Head Onyx Vodka is pretty interesting if you like to look past labels, this vodka’s made with Blue Weber Agave sourced from a single farm in Mexico, Onyx and one of the first commercially available agave-based vodkas.
Blue Weber Agave is typically reserved for super-premium tequilas but it apparently makes for an incredible base of a world-class vodka. It’s sold with the brand’s iconic ‘Crystal Head’ bottle but this one is Onyx like the name suggests. A 750ml goes for a suggested price of $55 and you can look for it on Drizly and order online by following that link below!
MeUndies Men’s Long Boxer Brief W/ Fly

Rock this all Fall and Winter with a plain t-shirt underneath and you’ll look fresh AF out there.

OluKai Indoor/Outdoor Slippers
It’s Slipper Season and I wanted to put these two Indoor/Outdoors slippers from OluKai on your radar. OluKai has been a favorite footwear brand of mine for years and both of these slippers are built for staying comfortable this Fall and Winter while running errands, lounging around the house, walking the dog, grabbing drinks, and/or chilling out.
I’ve included two slippers, the OluKai Moloa Slipper which comes in three different shades of leather (Toffee, Tobacco, and Dark Wood). The second slipper is the OluKai Mahana Slipper which has an outer constructed from incredibly soft jersey fabric. You’ll love both of these you just need to find the fit your needs.

Keeping Busy Outdoors All Season
I wanted to put the Asket Hoodie ($110) as a standalone item here because their mission is to bring you a world-class men’s garment at a cost that’s less than the competition. They even give a breakdown of the cost in materials and production of them vs. their competitors on their website. This hoodie comes in Dark Navy, Black, or Mud Green and it’s cut from their custom-developed heavyweight 100% organic cotton loopback. They’ve optimized for form and function with this hoodie and you 100% get more than you’re paying for.

Limited-Edition 6″ Xtratuf Deck Boots
Some wouldn’t be able to make it through a workday without deck boots while others might not even realize just how badly they could use a good pair of deck boots a handful of times each year. Deck boots are to Alaska what Bean Boots are to Maine or flip-flops are to Florida, they’re a way of life. And Xtratuf Deck Boots have long been the favorite of Alaskans and their brutally wet weather.
The gentlemen at Huckberry teamed up with Xtratuf for a limited-edition Camo trim colorway on Xtratuf’s flagship 6″ Deck Boot and it will keep your feet dry no matter how treacherous the weather is. And sometimes it’s not all about staying dry. I wear these while fishing here in Florida so I don’t slip on the wet boat deck AND so my feet don’t get crazy sunburned.
Gear To Add To Your Wishlist
First up today is The Runwell by Shinola Watches ($550) which is a stylish American-made watch that’s assembled by hand in Detroit. This watch is powered by a reliable and highly-accurate maintenance-free Argonite 715 quartz movement. One of the things I love about this watch is its versatility. You can dress this watch up or down depending on the occasion. Rock it with shorts and a polo or with a suit. This watch isn’t cheap but you’re buying some of the best craftsmanship and quality in America so you get more than you pay for with this brilliant timepiece.

100% Waterproof All-Weather Duckboots
The All-Weather Duckboot II ($188) laughs in the face of foul weather. Your feet will always stay dry and these boots look damn fine in two different colorways.
The Duckboot is a classic style that offers the durability and versatility of a Range Rover. It’s the rare bot style that you can dress up or down for foul weather and won’t be judged on the style of footwear because it’s a universally accepted boot. Whether you’re camping, hiking, riding, running errands, or headed to work in inclement weather this is the go-to style of the season.

These Wolverine 1000 Mile Evan Boots ($400) as are nice of a pair of leather boots as you’ll find anywhere in the world and they are handcrafted at Wolverine’s factory in Big Rapids, Michigan.

Russell’s Reserve 2003 ‘Vintage’ Series Release
Russell’s Reserve just blessed the world with their third release in their prestigious ‘Vintage’ series from master distiller Eddie Russell. The Vintage Series pays homage to Eddie’s father, Jimmy Russell, aka The Buddha of Bourbon. Only 3,600 bottles of this limited release will be available at select retailers nationwide so you’ll want to track this down locally if you love Bourbon and make sure you don’t miss out.
The Russell’s Reserve 2003 for a minimum of 16 years inside the RRR distillery’s Tyrone warehouses and this marks the absolute last of Russell’s Reserve 107-barrel-entry-proof whiskey. The flavor profile and characteristics are similar to special Wild Turkey releases from the late 80s and early 90s and Eddie Russell had a bonafide ‘Eureka!’ moment when he first tasted the barrel’s whiskey bursting with spice, fruit, and butterscotch.
As you can see above, Russell’s Reserve 2003 has a rich dark amber color. The aroma is full of sweet baking spices, fully-ripe stonefruits, and butterscotch. Two of my sweet ‘vices’ are caramel and butterscotch and the palate carries balanced flavors of burnt caramel, pepper, leather, and buttery vanilla. The finish is smooth, smokey, and has lingering notes of sweet caramel and vanilla. As I said above, it’s bottled at 107-barrel-proof but it drinks at 89.5-proof which means you can very comfortably enjoy it neat without needing to dilute it. To check for local availability you can follow that ‘shop now’ button below to visit Drizly or you can head to the WildTurkey website for more.
