The Sartorialist | Lunch for 25


Marking  The Sartorialist’s first video debut, Scott Schuman reveals Lunch for 25. Featuring the dapper cognoscenti at Pitti Uomo, the heavyweight summit includes cameos by Nick Wooster, Simone Righi and of course Mr. Schuman. With the aid of  Garance Doré, frame after frame of well executed personal trimmings mark a visually awesome assembly. If only we could be a fly on the wall at such a meet – that role surprisingly went to Kanye West.  For now pull back a chair and pour yourself a limoncello, The Sartorialist’s Lunch for 25 will provide the dash of sprezzatura.


Schooled | Chevrolet’s Around the Corner (1937)

Aspiring motorheads and learned gearheads, listen up. Every man should know what the hell a car’s differential is. Up for your enjoyment is a short produced by the folks at Chevrolet back in good ole’ 1937 and serves as the best explanation for the way a differential works that I have ever heard. One up your fellow man if you haven’t already and feast your eyes on the American automotive industry’s standard for production value in its Golden age, you will be glad you did.


Treading | Red Wing Iron Rangers Black Harness

Our love for the craftsmanship by the hand of Red Wing grows deeper with each encounter. Put through the toughest of paces, the Red Wing Iron Ranger’s in Black Harness have the swagger for the meditatively formal and for the outright tough. Part of their Heritage collection, the No. 8114’s are a cap toe boot made of Black Harness leather featuring an even more durable Nitrile cork sole. Channeling the classic with a 6″ ankle, its form is reminiscent of boots built with a nod to sophistication in comparison to its tactically inspired contemporaries. In conditions threatening the worst of outcomes, a light wash restores them to in-rank inspection passing status. Rakish attitudes may ensue.  For a list of stockists, head over to Red Wing Heritage. More to come of the Iron Rangers on foreign soil.
