Run Of The Mill is a new online shop put together by a few good men with the honorable intention of simply curating their favorite styles and pieces. Featuring design collaborations with none other than Mark McNairy, the new creative director for heritage label Woolrich Woolen Mills, their Spring/Summer lineup is small but smartly tailored.
It seems the guys at ROTM decided to knock us out with the first punch; Their first colab with McNairy is the Loden Green Suede Longwing, a deep olive suede wingtip with a natural/welted crepe sole. By adding some light leather laces, this new classic will be perfect for transitioning into fall. Personally, I can't get over the 8 pocket Navy Cargo pants by Mark McNairy New Amsterdam which at $238 might leave you with nothing to fill all those pockets with, but at the least, I'm feeling inspired to thrift a similar pair and visit the tailor.

Once you get past the "cheese" of the iMovie Aged Film effect, The second Army vs Navy series video teaser is actually pretty informative. Not only does it offer a sneak preview of the vintage military textiles used in the colab, but it almost acts as a simple how-to of basic shoe construction.

In attempt to share more style inspiration from women's wear, Do any of my female readers have any blog/website suggestions? Especially if their style is menswear influenced. Nina Sky is wearing my daily uniform in this photo; she always manages to keep her femininity while looking dope as hell in her menswear.

Ronnie Fieg Presents: The Sebago Nexus Project - Trailer by Jake Davis from Jake Davis on Vimeo.
Several months ago, Shoe Designer Ronnie Fieg had an idea. With the increasing rise of influence possessed by those owning the blogosphere, it only made sense that his next collaboration had to be with his favorite online tastemakers. Backed by Sebago, Ronnie called to arms his "Dream Team," a swag-tag group of influential bloggers currently carving the way for menwear and men's lifestyle in general, to form The Sebago Nexus Project.
Soon Marcus Troy, Jake Davis, Greg Weinstein of Culture Shoq, William Yan, and Joshua Kissi of Street Etiquette all found themselves at Sebago’s Dominican Republic Facility where they were asked to redesign Sebago's classic styles to create a series of ten custom Sebago shoes. What really inspired me about the project was that each participant not only designed but worked hands on with Sebagos craftsmen to construct the first pair, a truly fairytale-like experience for these Bloggers who most of which have no formal background. This collaboration is not only a testament to the power of the internet, but to the power of one's unique voice. In an online world where everyone's ideas can be shared, original thought, talent, good taste and hustle is still worth everything.
Throughout the summer, each blogger will have their own trailer filmed by Jake Davis which will debut on their respective sites. The shoes will be available exclusively at David Z’s flagship store in New York as well as davidz.com.

Swedish brand Human Scales just released a new collection called Archipelago. Although this line is heavily inspired by marine life and and fishermen of the past, Human Scales brings a fresh approach to these classic ideas without feeling too overly nautical.
