And there are some certain items, from a great pair of classic black denim to stylish brown leather boots, that just tend to help you look, feel and dress your best. That’s what we’ve rounded up in this first edition of The List, so come along for the ride and feel free to leave me some feedback on Twitter — let’s go!

Flint and Tinder All-American Washed Jeans in Stonewashed Black — $118

Slim-fitting stonewashed jeans in a cool shade of black.

Looking for the perfect pair of black denim? Flint and Tinder might have just come through with the All-American Jeans in Stonewashed Black. Ideal for your next rock concert.


Filson Watch Cap — $45

A dependable watch cap from a brand that knows how to make ’em.

The cold chill of winter has finally swept in … but the Filson Watch Cap is the dependable winter hat you need to help you through, my friend.
Fourlaps Rush Jogger — $78

Slim joggers that work for lounging or actually working out. Truly!

Do you need these joggers in your life? Well, do you need to stay cozy and comfortable this winter? That’d be yes to both — plus, they work even better at the gym as you jumpstart your New Year’s resolutions.
Thorogood Belloit Boots — $229.98

Beautifully rugged boots that can take a beating this winter.

The Thorogood Belloit Boots are, to put it quite simply, the type of rugged leather boots that you actually look forward to wearing in the winter. And at that price? Get the Belloit Boots on your feet now.
Life/After/Denim Oak Park Cardigan in Navy — $198

A substantial upgrade over your weekend hoodie, that’s for sure.

Why is it worth it to shell out nearly $200 for this Life/After/Denim cardigan? Well, the Oak Park Cardigan is at once rugged and refined, able to layer up over your favorite henley or a classic chambray shirt and a knit tie in equal measure.
GrowlerWerks uPint — $30

Quite the way to enjoy your favorite beer, don’t you think?

Here’s one for all you craft beer fans out there — the GrowlerWerks uPint is every bit as good as the rest of the GrowlerWerks line. And yet, the uPint is just a smaller way to keep your favorite brew cold and fresh.
Taylor Stitch Chore Blanket-Lined Jacket — $198

A durable Taylor Stitch jacket with a warm blanket lining? That’s as good as it gets.

Taylor Stitch knows all about the gear you need this winter, and the durably crafted Taylor Stitch Chore Blanket-Lined Jacket is cozy and stylish, plus tough as heck.
Farmhouse Pottery Fir Candle — $30.98

A small apartment or home upgrade that makes a difference.

Because life is about more than clothes, I’m recommending the Farmhouse Pottery Fir Candle. I always like to have a candle going when I’m at my apartment blogging or hanging out, and this Fir Candle offers a pleasant, rugged scent.
Taylor Stitch The Crater Shirt in Navy Plaid — $128

A classic Taylor Stitch shirt in a cool Navy Plaid — now, how about that?

We’re letting Taylor Stitch have another spot in this edition of The List simply because the Crater Shirt is too well-made and too stylish to pass up. Wouldn’t you agree? Wear this with some Taylor Stitch Slim Chinos, and you’re all set.
Vague Watch Co. Brown GMT Watch —$290

A refined-yet-rugged leather watch that looks great with darn near anything.

This edition of The List gets closed out with the stunning, relatively affordable Vague Watch Co. Brown GMT Watch. It’s a durable leather watch that’ll pair well with a tan herringbone blazer and blue denim, or alongside slim joggers and a thermal crewneck — it’s as easy as that.
OK, friends — we’re wrapped up with this edition of The List! How’d we do? What piece of gear is your favorite? I’ll tell you this … I positively can’t get enough of the Thorogood Belloit Boots, and that’s the last word on that!
