Por Homme Trench by Stock Manufacturing

Por Homme Trench by Stock Manufacturing

In collaboration with Chicago-based Stock Manufacturing, we introduce to you this trench coat. It’s our first jump into design and we’re really excited to get it out on the market and see how it’s received. Stock gave us the option to pick any garment we wanted and I decided to go with a high quality, any-season trench as it’s one of the most essential garments a man can own.

It comes in a trimmed down fit which flows nicely with the overall minimalistic design. The mid-thigh length was key here as was going with a weather-resistant fabric. I wanted to deliver something that was versatile and I’m really confident in the finished product. Blend the details with the old-world tailoring techniques and the finest Japanese fabric and you’ve got a must-have for any man’s closet.

This piece will be sold exclusively through Stock Manufacturing, for two weeks only. After the next 14 days, the team in Chicago will produce what was ordered, and that’s it. This exact piece will never be available again. So, click through, check it out, and if you dig it – buy. Any questions / concerns / comments, please reach out to me directly if needed — atif@porhomme.com.

Introducing | The New Red Wing Heritage 875 and 877 Boots

Introducing | The New Red Wing Heritage 875 and 877 Boots

Red Wing’s Heritage division has updated the leather used on the iconic 875 and 877 boots to be truer to the original. Red Wing Heritage’s new Oro Legacy leather will replace the Oro-iginal leather that has been used on the previous version of the iconic 875 and 877. Oro Legacy is a supple, more natural richly colored leather that harkens back to the days when Red Wing’s salesmen recalled pulling boots out of the box “slick with oil”. And like the other leathers in the Heritage collection, it’s made right in Red Wing, Minnesota at S.B. Foot Tanning Company. The new Oro Legacy is a more natural leather that displays much more character than the previous 875 and 877 leather.

The 875 6″ moc-toe boot and 877 8″ moc-toe boot will retain their shape and classic styling, but the Oro Legacy leather update means that they’ll be as close to the originals as possible. Learn more about the 877 and 875 boots at RedWingHeritage.com.
