New! Poler X Nike SB

Personal style, in the world of Portland, OR—which, if you’ve been there, you know is almost exactly the same as it’s portrayed in the TV show Portlandia—means apparel that’s all at once tech-y and earth-y, at times willfully weird, and suitable for work, play, and frequent daytrips into the great outdoors. Get on their level with the Poler X Nike SB collection. That’s Poler, the adventure/style company from Portland, blended with Nike’s skateboarding/skate-culture SB division, which is headquartered in nearby Beaverton.

We agree with Herschel Supply Company that there is a virtue in being truly #wellpacked, and documenting it. Because at some point while adventuring you might need to play some cuts (shout out to Bluetooth deejays). Because you never know when you’re gonna need to Gift & Go. And because cold days are way better with a flask.

The crown jewels of our latest Olivia Kim-curated Pop-In Shop, GIFT & GO, are a series of five blacked-out Rolexes customized exclusively for us in collaboration with Bamford Watch Department.

Make no mistake: Each watch is literally the only one of its kind in the world. Through advanced technologies, our friends at London-based Bamford take brand-new luxury watches, custom-color each individual component, and reassemble the watch to its original premium-grade specifications.

Keep reading for a closer look at our custom Daytona, Milgauss, Explorer II and more—and to hear the backstory of the brand from founder George Bamford.

Plaid: it’s as old as the hills. But today’s best applications of ages-old tartan patterns take that traditional country club madras and your grandfather’s Sansabelts and throw a handful of future at them. Urban bravehearts hoping to steer clear of geezerville should aim for flat fronts and slim, even slightly cropped legs. And it goes without saying (but we will just in case): pair solid tops with checks, please.

Considering: Smart Slippers

Look, on days like these, even a total genius just wants to hang around the house in a pair of slippers and eat Nutella out of the jar.

Just maybe—hopefully—not those slippers.

We took the liberty of picking out a more gentlemanly pair for old EinsteinThe L.B. Evans Duke Opera. As for his choice of spreadable Italian snack food? Oh, right. That’s our choice. And we’re fine with it, thanks.

Our guest editor Thig Nat (right)—a polished professional by day, hip-hop musician and talented photographer by night—possesses an innate sense of style that shines through on the microphone as much as it does in his personal appearance.

Keep reading for a look inside Thig’s creative process as his band, The Physics, heads back into the studio—and to see his favorite fall items that work as hard as they play.

The thing about the monk strap is that it’s a very statement-y classic. On the continuum of classics from subtle to strong, it hits the right end of the spectrum, and rings a couple of bells and whistles while it’s there. Smart, sophisticated bells and whistles, though. Think, free jazz bells and whistles. Think, well, Thelonious Monk.

We typically stay away from blanket statements, but in today’s jogger pants-with-a-sport-coat economy, you really can’t go wrong with this style: put it with a sharp, slightly short trouser or throw it under some cuffed premium denim. For your consideration: three of our favorite specimens.

Pop-In@Nordstrom Welcomes I.T: We collaborated with Hong Kong fashion collective I.T to bring menswear brands izzue, :CHOCOOLATE and Aape by A BATHING APE to the U.S. for the first time.

With looks ranging from best-in-class bomber jackets to preppy cable-knit sweaters to all-camo-everything from a streetwear legend, our latest Olivia Kim-curated Pop-In Shop has something—nay, many things—for menswear fans of every stripe.

To help cut through the euphoria-inducing sartorial overload, we asked stylist Ashley Helvey (a talented artist, tea connoisseur and Giants fan with a deadpan sense of humor) to tell us her favorites. Keep reading for tips from the pro who assembled every I.T outfit in our shop.
