The Dickens, from British staple Barbour is perfect for this coming spring. Made of Barbour’s traditional waxed cotton, it should keep you dry in the approaching rainy weather. The jacket is a departure from their traditional patterns and colors and represents a more modern style from the brand. Coming in at £169, it’s expensive, but won’t leave you penniless. Available now at endclothing.com.

Nike brings us their first ever platypus-inspired sneaker with the Air Force 1 Duck Boot. The mixture of classic duck boot and Air Forces will come in two colorways, black and brown. The combo carries over not just in design, but also functionality; the shoes feature a wool collar and thermal insulation as well as outer waterproofing. A release date hasn’t been officially announced but look for them to hit retailers soon.
LAYERxlayer, whose made-to-order bags we’ve posted in the past, has a collection of great looking denim aprons soon to be available. Like their bags, the aprons are also made-to-order and produced with American grown & woven denim which provides durability and breaks in well over time. At this quality, they should be the first choice of any artist or craftsman that uses an apron. While you can’t order online directly yet, they should be available soon and you can contact LAYERxlayer to be placed on notification list. When available, the aprons will come in black, grey, or raw denim varieties and cost $75-$95.
This Stussy x Manhattan Portage collaboration brings in a fresh new year with clean lines on either black/white or blue/white colorways. Unfortunately the bags are only available in Stussy Japan stores for now, but Manhattan Portage announced they’ll be sold worldwide later this Spring. We’ll keep you posted when they become available.

We’re liking these brown suede chukka boots by Timberland. Part of their Abington collection (stemming from Timberland’s original name- “The Abington Shoe Company”), the boots are produced with premium leathers and suede from Charles F. Stead & Co. and manufactured with hand-sewn construction. Like any TImberland boot, they’re built to last. They come in brown and grey colorways and tend to go fast when they’re available, so head over to Bonobos for a pair while you can. $140
Despite their great cause, we’re yet to see a pair of TOMS shoes that we wouldn’t feel silly wearing out of the house. Until now, that is. Their grey Wool Fleck Botas bring a solid new style to the brand while continuing their praiseworthy mission of charity and the use of environmentally friendly materials. The Botas feature an upper made out of polyester and recycled plastic bottles, a faux shearling lining for warmth and comfort, and the classic TOMS suede insole. Lightweight yet warm, they might just be the perfect winter shoe… long as you stay on the beaten path. They’re available now for $80 at TOMS online. You’ll probably have to wait for a post-holiday restock though, as the shoes are currently sold out in most sizes.
A few months back, we wrote a short brand spotlight on Chicago’s Oak Street Bootmakers. Now, we bring you the latest addition to their stock, the Hunt Boot. The boots are available in both navy and brown and are hand-crafted to order right here in the USA. They’re made with Horween Chromexcel leather with Vibram soles, wax stitching, and rawhide laces. The boots don’t drop until January, but you can pre-order now for $356 at Oak Steet Bootmakers.
