It is challenging to pin down exactly what Vancouver B.C. based Forest and Waves is exactly. The brand’s founder Ed Juan decided to switch gears in 2012 and leave the animation industry to start a business with greater personal meaning to him.
If you’re anything like me, you struggle to keep all of your cords and headphones tidy, and sort of freak out when they are in disarray. This Is Ground‘s Cordito Roll is the perfect companion to keep all of your shit together in a stylish fashion. The Cordito Supreme (pictured) is $70 while the regular Corditio is only $40, a fair price for leather goods crafted in Los Angeles.
There is a very real stigma about the “man bag,” sometimes known as the “murse.” Men carrying around over-sized bags on the street is something that is common among style blogs, but really, how often does the average man carry a tote or large bag? The answer is not that regularly. Which is stupid because tote bags are versatile, durable, and aren’t constantly slung over one, or both shoulders. The Good Camp decided to put together a list of three, simple, stylish tote bags designed for dudes in mind. Here you go:
Duluth Pack Market Tote ($100): “The most popular tote by Duluth Pack; this simple bag is northwoods-strong. This tote is the ultimate shopping companion, a spacious handbag, the perfect carryall for your day, and even a weekend travel bag. There is no longer a need to be the multi-bag person; toss your lunch, satchel, and gym clothes in your market tote to be ready for the day. Feel organized and prepared when carrying this versatile bag.” – duluthpack.com
Barbour Harbour Tote Bag ($?): The Harbour Tote is a ‘carry-all’ travel bag in Barbour’s robust waxed cotton, with stylish leather trims. The generous outer pocket features a stud-fastened strap, while a zipped inner pocket safeguards valuables. – barbour.com
Carhartt WIP Scott Tote ($118): The Scott Tote features a water repellent, coated 100% nylon cordura shell, a detachable shoulder strap, and an interior pocket. Simple design in the iconic “Hamilton Brown” Carhartt color.
It would be a mistake to not own a pair of Red Wing boots. Whether you beat them to death on a job site or wear them as a statement in the office, make no mistake these Minnesota-made boots are second to none.
In order to meet the demand of a market asking for more styles of Red Wings other than traditional work wear. Red Wing Boots established the heritage collection. The fall 2014 collection features some amazing colorways of the Chelsea and Iron Ranger boots. Think of a pair of Red Wing’s as an investment, a pair of boots you can take care of and keep forever. I’ve had a pair for five years and they aren’t going anywhere.
Recently Filson and Magnum photographer David Allen Harvey collaborate to design a line of camera bags built specifically for the outdoors. The entire phenomenal collection can be viewed here. Although it’s impossible to pick a single apple of my eye from the bunch I highlighted a few that I would mind taking out into the wild.
1. Outfitter Travel Bag ($440): Water-repellent, soft travel bag packs like a suitcase and has a separate, nylon-lined compartment for wet items. The roll-top storm flap provides added protection. Bridle Leather shoulder strap and handles for carrying comfort.
2. Original Sportsman Camera Bag ($395): Made of weather-resistant Tin Cloth and Rugged Twill, this bag is durable and versatile. Structured modular dividers and multiple pockets provide storage options. Snap-closure leather handles; optional 2″ twill shoulder strap; YKK nylon zipper.
3. Camera Field Bag ($320): Durable Tin Cloth, rain-diverting gutter flaps and ample interior storage space make this camera bag ideal for on-location shooting. Features a wide shoulder strap for carrying comfort.
4. McCurry Tote ($245): A lightweight tote with rugged shoulder straps, padded handgrips, multiple pockets and optional snap closure for easy access to equipment. Removable padded divider has its own snap closure. Tote is both water- and abrasion-resistant.
