Picks of the week 4.0

Lauren Larsen

Happy Thursday, y'all!

Thursday is one of my favourite days of the week for a few reasons... firstly, it is a great day to get together with friends after work because it isn't as busy as Friday but still has a good vibe, secondly, it is Friday eve, thirdly, Spotify has throwback playlists, and fourthly, it is the most stylish day of the week. Ok, I made the last one up, every day of the week is the most stylish, but the rest are cold, hard facts. :)

Because it has been a while, I am going to give you a list of a few of my favourite things, and by a few, I mean ten. Ten things that I think you need to check out!

Here we go...

Ensemble Style Calgary Men's Fashion Personal Stylist
  1. Steven Alan sunglasses. 
    • I am obsessed with American designer, Steven Alan. His heritage-inspired collections are easy-wearing, comfortable and stylish. His optical line is equally cool, which is why these sunglasses have made the list.
       
  2. Saturdays Surf crew neck pullover.
    • Saturdays Surf is another brand I love... and by love, I mean LOVE. Not only do they have a really, really cool surf shop/coffee bar in SoHo NYC (with a hidden gem of a back patio area) their clothing line is equally awesome. I like this sweater because it has colourful speckled detailing, making it different than your standard pullover sweater. It also has matching jogger pants, if you're brave enough. 
       
  3. Chapter leather biker jacket. 
    • Ch. is a really cool brand that focuses on simplicity, modernism, function and quality. Their clothing is cutting-edge and ready to wear. This biker jacket is perfect - it is made of quality leather, fits impeccably and can be layered in the winter with shirts and/or sweaters. 
       
  4. Simon and Garfunkel 
    • I don't know where I've been, or where they have been all my life, BUT you know what they say, it is better late than never. I have developed a recent obsession with Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel - together they are amazing and apart, Paul Simon alone will put you in a happy dance mood. Pull a few of their songs for your next party playlist and your guests will thank you!
       
  5. Baxter of California razor, brush and stand.
    • Whether you have a beard, stubble or like it clean, you need a good razor. Baxter of California is reasonably priced and will last a lifetime. The best part, the replacement razors are very affordable, at $5.00 a pack.
       
  6. Everlane bag.
    • Everlane is a new(ish) brand that is taking simplicity to a new level. Their quality clothing is affordable, simple and of good quality. They are transparent with their manufacturing, providing a list of the factories they use, complete with descriptions and images, on their website, and they source and design everything in house, cutting out unnecessary middlemen. 
       
  7. Doc Marten boots.
    • These boots are a nice alternative to the traditional Doc Martens. They are less bulky and can be easily paired with jeans or chinos.
       
  8. Aesop Moroccan Neroli post-shave lotion
    • This lotion is quickly absorbed, made of quality ingredients and smells great. Swap it with your standard drugstore lotion and you will add a touch of luxury to your morning routine. 
       
  9. Pendelton for Brooks Brothers plaid button-up.
    • I'm a big fan of anything Pendleton - the brand's heritage-inspired, classic pieces are great for Canadian falls and winters. This shirt looks awesome on its own but also can be used as a layering piece - under a jacket on cold days or over a shirt and without a jacket for the chinook days. 
       
  10. Portland General Store for Club Monaco whiskey shave puck.
    • What man doesn't like the smell of whiskey on his face? I'd argue, none. This shave puck is perfect to use with a shave brush - just keep it in a dish on the bathroom counter, swirl your brush in it to create foam and lather it on your face. 

And there you have it, 10 stylish picks for the modern gentleman. 

Let me know if you have any questions or need help finding any of the above items! I am more than happy to point you in the right direction.
