As we may have mentioned before, the exclusive clothing brands our very own, in-house design teams create are nothing short of fantastic. We recently tried some items on for size from Nordstrom-exclusive brand Wallin & Bros.—and found timeless menswear staples boasting quality fabrics, an ideal fit (trim but not tight), and appealing price tags, to boot.
We decided Wallin & Bros. could easily outfit you for a full week at work, so continue reading for five days of office-ready looks featuring our own exclusive brand.

It’s that special time of year: Anniversary Sale. A time not only to revel in scoring new Fall items, at sale prices, ahead of schedule—but also a time to look back on our 100+ years of history.
Did you know that the first Nordstrom was a shoe store? John W. Nordstrom himself set up shop in Downtown Seattle in the year 1901. A century later, we’re still here in Seattle—and still family-operated.

SHOP ALL: ANNIVERSARY SALE FOR MEN
A brogue is a strong Irish or Scottish accent. It’s also a name for a perforated shoe, originally designed to allow water to drain after crossing a bog.
While we wouldn’t recommend these shoes for water sports (sorry, the holes on modern iterations are merely decorative), we would suggest you pick up a pair for inclement commutes this fall and winter. Each wingtip below features a sturdy rubber sole, guaranteed to grip wet pavement—as well as the treacherously slick floor in your office lobby.
Ted Baker ($220)
Tod’s ($545, Designer Collections)
Get a grip. (The rubber and synthetic
soles of the shoes above.)
