Backpack Round-Up

fryebackpackWhether you’re carrying a computer, packing your it’s-starting-to-get-chilly jacket for the evening, or keeping a beach blanket wrapped around a bottle of champagne: a backpack is your friend.

And we must not overlook this accessory’s great style potential. Think about it. Your outfit is slamming and then you drape some raggedy bag over your back? Nullifies everything. Don’t be that guy.

Be the guy who gets compliments on his backpack.

In this category, the leather Frye backpack above is our current object of desire. See six more lustworthy backpacks below:

A couple weeks ago, we introduced our Fall Boot Guide  with examples of the tough-but-refined Wingtip Boot.

Today, we’d like to focus on a class of Rugged Boots that fully embraces masculine military and workwear influences—but still can (and should) be worn in a dressy way.

Just look at how handsomely they anchor a plaid tie and tweed vest in the images above. Add a bleached-out jean jacket and you’re ready for anything, from drinks with the guys to lunch with a new client. It’s called contrast, sirs—and it’s the key to a cool outfit.

Here are 6 of our favorite Rugged Boots (in addition to the Frye ‘Logger’ Boot above)—but be sure to shop our full selection here.
