Gone are the days of your zip wallet from middle school. A decent being deserves a decent wallet.

With spring quickly approaching, it’s a sure bet that we aren’t the only ones shedding our sweaters and hoodies like crazy. Still, we may have to make one exception. B:Scott recently introduced its Denim Double Mock Pullover, which combines everything we love about hoodies, sweaters and jackies, expertly combined into one beautifully executed piece of clothing. At $155 it might be a tad spendy for some, but with looks like this, we’re sure it isn’t going to stick around for long.
Founded in 1849, Lobb is one of England’s oldest makers of bench-made shoes. Everyone from Royalty to Hollywood has had a pair of John Lobb’s. The William II shoe, which is by far the most popular John Lobb shoe, is a double buckle monk shoe with a hand stitched toe cap. Special care is taken to select the leather that will be used and the traditional British stitching on the bottom of the sole is done entirely by hand. William II shoes can be found online at JohnLobb.com for $1,240, or at all Hermes stores.
More than a money clip, less than a wallet. The Magic Wallet by J. Crew is perfect for those of us who are likely to carry more credit cards than we do cash. It carries just enough credit cards and IDs without having to deal with an extra fold in the wallet, and a compartment in the center can easily hold cash if that’s how you roll. Buy the Magic Wallet at J. Crew for the modest price of $25. As of this posting, the wallet is unavailable until April 7th of this year, but if you’re in luck if there’s a local J. Crew store at your nearby mall.
The recent passing of Alexander McQueen is a tragedy and a loss for the fashion industry. We’ve had a few items suggested to us from his catalogue of work, and this is the first of them.

The front of the shoe features the heart-shaped peep-toe, and the undersole is available in a variety of daringly bright neon colors. Available for $699 from Zappos.

If you’re looking for a hair product that doesn’t give you the shiny appearance of hair wax or pastes you should try Osis Dust It by Schwarzkopf. This product will give you the texture you desire through a powder form that allows your hair to move naturally. Sprinkle it directly on your hair roots for a volumizing effect or work it through your hands and apply to your ends for a separated look. Dust It works great on all hair types and is available for $12 on Amazon.
Scott Hansen (also known as ISO50 or Tycho) is one of our favorite designers, and it’s no surprise that his merchandise shop houses quite a few prints, shirts, and even albums that we’d love to own. With a bit of a classic retro modern design flair, you’re sure to find something amongst his wares. Take, for example, the SYV mens thermal shirt ($30 and also available in womens) or the Vuela 1979 print ($17) pictured above.
