men’s accessories web shop that’s worth taking a look at. Opumo is stocked with some pretty killer bags, wallets, sunglasses, ties, socks and so much more. Even my hard to impress husband was in awe of the great selection they carry. So if fine menswear is your thing (or even if its not), Opumo is sure to be a great resource.

Navy Gingham Flannel Sport Shirt
Sand Suede Double Monk
today actually; the Run of the Mill fall/winter 2011 collection is tight but very smart. The pieces are described by my husband as “ridiculously awesome,” and although I am no authority on menswear, I agree! The shoes are made in Italy, the shirts in the U.S.A., the fabrics are carefully sourced, and the styles are thoughtfully cut. They’re taking pre-orders for one month only, so if anything peaks your interest, get on it. What strikes me the most is that three influential bloggers collaborated to turn out the Run of the Mill shop, it’s inspiring to say the least.

Otis James Bowtie
Otis James Necktie
to mix work and play in your wardrobe, then check out Otis James. Hand made neckties and bow ties that only add to an outfit, not take it over. The fabrics and patterns are sophisticated, yet still fun. Located in Nashville, this designer’s motto is “keep it simple”, and for the most part he does. However, lucky for us the craftsmanship is intricate and detailed, from the hand stitches down to the stamped/painted labels. The talented tiemaker also does custom work, which is something you just don’t find everyday.

I find it so stunning when a girl effortlessly wears men’s clothing..understatedly cool.

Diemme Roccia Vet
designed as a hunting shoe, the Roccia Vet has been updated with lighter, more comfortable soles making it the perfect shoe for everyday wear. They’re from Diemme, an Italian company that was started by 2 brothers about twenty years ago. Over the past 2 decades, the brand has built a solid name in the industry and for good reason – the product is classic, well-made and designed to take a beating. It’s evident they take pride in their craftsmanship and all products are handmade in Italy from the best materials available. These mountain boot inspired sneakers are made from rugged suede with an extra soft cow leather lining and a vegetable latex footbed. Not to mention cool details like contrasting laces and heel. They’re designed to withstand the elements so these kicks are perfect for the crazy weather that’s coming our way. No surprise, but they seem to be going fast, so get on it guys.
