Living in South Florida doesn’t give me a whole lot of opportunity to wear thick wool, but that hasn’t kept me from coveting the latest collection from San Francisco-based Taylor Stitch.Read More

I recently connected with California-based clothing company Edgevale through Instagram. I had been eying their goods for a while, and lucked out and was able to scoop a few things, and I couldn't be more excited. All their products are designed, tested and manufactured in California.
The Chambray workshirt is an instant classic. I havn't had it for long, but I've been wearing the crap out of it. It holds up great while hustling in the woodshop, trekking through the woods or bellying up to the bar. I might need to add a second to my wardrobe.
Their Cast Iron shorts are another piece getting a lot of wear. Made from a heavy duck cotton (they can take a serious beating), they also feature a special reinforced pocket gusset to hold pesky wear and tear at bay from keeping your knife in your pocket. On top of all that - they're the perfect length, landing a few inches above my knee.
The Keep on Ramblin' Pocket tee is exceptionally soft and comes in a great lean cut. It feels like an old favorite you've had a decade right out of the box. Plus it features their awesome camper truck logo emblazoned on the pocket tee.
and then there's the North Coast Shirt Jacket. This thing rocks. The perfect weight for shoulder seasons / winter in these southern states. Wind and water resistant, trim silhouette, this is the best shirt jacket/overshirt/shacket/etc I've come across. Wish I had this during my and Kay's summer on the road.
If you havn't already, head over to EdgevaleUSA.com. Their made in USA goods are stylish, functional, and timeless - you won't be disappointed.
Made in Northern California, perfectly at home in South Florida.
I recently discovered Alite Designs (who produce and sell a variety of outdoor-ready products), but their Bike to Beach bag is the one I'm most excited about.
Made in San Francisco, the bag easily coverts from tote to backpack (and not in the ugly, clumsy with too-many-moving-parts way I've seen from other manufacturers). It comes in a few different colorways of 18oz canvas, features a U-lock pocket, and the adjustable leather straps making this a highly versatile tote.
For $135, this bag is an timeless classic that will last you years and years to come (not to mention Alite's lifetime guarantee!)
Check it out over in the Alite Designs shop
They also make a smaller version here!

Say farewell to summer with style cues from this '77 adventure film.
A criminally underrated movie, The Deep is based on the novel by the same name from author Peter Benchley (who also brought us Jaws). The film takes place in beautiful Bermuda as Nick Nolte, Robert Shaw and Jacqueline Bisset scuba dive in search of treasure.
I recently watched the film with my dad and absolutely loved it. It wasn't well received when it was released, but it is an extremely fun and suspenseful adventure film. Not to mention stylish (as illustrated in the screengrabs featured below).
Here's a Deep themed guide to looking sharp this Labor Day Weekend.
+ Find a colorful short sleeve shirt with a fun pattern. Treat offers dozens of stylish options.
+ Wear a hat designed for the beach, like this classic panama from Target. It wont cost a fortune, so you won't be heartbroken if it gets claimed by the sea.
+ Beat the heat with a classic - Taylor Stitch's cotton/linen blend shirt
+ Go the extra mile and catch your dinner with the JBL elite woody sawed off speargun
+ It's no secret that I love a good chore coat, and the one Robert Shaw wears in this film is no exception. Stay warm during the chilly evenings with one like this from Le Laboureur.
+ Throw all your beach gear in a clean and simple tote. I'm particularly fond of this bag from the folks over at Herschel Supply.
Last but not least, how can you not be envious of Romer Treece's (Robert Shaw) lighthouse-home?!
