for fall: the motorcycle jacket

i’ve been obsessed with motorcycle jackets ever since i discovered the ramones.  it’s one of those things i’ve always wanted, but have been hesitant to pull the trigger on because i don’t “technically” have or ride a motorcycle.  who cares about that?  not me.  now might be the time to buy one as affordable options are popping up in online stores like park and bond.

if you’re thinking about buying one, here are a few things to remember: #1 black is best.  this fall i’ve seen them in brown, burgundy, dark green, and other strange colors.  stay from those.  go with black.  #2 don’t buy a “”washed” leather jacket.  part of the fun is breaking it in.  “distressed” and “washed” leather jackets will make you look like you’re trying too hard.  #3 don’t blow your budget.  there’s no reason to spend your life savings on a motorcycle jacket.  you may never wear it.  keep it under a grand with these two options below.

good find: filson leather briefcase

gq picked a few of their favorite items from the new park and bond online store.  one of them was this filson leather field satchel (or briefcase if you don’t work in the field).  it’s an investment at $795, but one that will hold up for years to come.  you can give it to your kid one day.  he’ll thank you later.

if you haven’t heard of park and bond, head over to their site and do some browsing.  it’s basically an online men’s store for bloggers.  kind of takes the fun out of finding some stuff, but j. crew started it last year with their “in good company” collection.  not complaining; just saying.
