Gant Rugger F/W 2015

Christopher Bastin, creative director of Gant Rugger, used Sonoma County as inspiration for his forthcoming Fall/Winter 2015 collection. For your money, Bastin has beautifully blended Gant's prep aesthetic with the more relaxed California wine country vibe. He describes the looks as "what you'd expect when you open your heavy, wooden, countryside closet door."

Beckett Simonon | April Pre-Order

Beckett Simonon is on a mission to provide stylish, handmade shoes at the most affordable price. Their team handles all aspects of design, production, and sales, which significantly reduces the markups that you're used to absorbing when purchasing footwear. Recently, they shifted their approach so that the customers decide through a pre-ordering process which models will be made. With all four styles in the inaugural March campaign successfully funded, the April offerings--cap-toe oxford, penny loafer, double monk, and tassel loafer--are now on the table. Each model is made of full-grain leather and features Blake construction, which means they can be easily resoled. Orders for the current batch will be accepted through April 30, and are expected to ship in late June. Price per pair is $135, or buy two pairs for $235 with the code "2PAIRS" at checkout.

It's more of the same from cherry director William Strobeck, with the likes of legend Jason Dill and strong BX up-and-comer Tyshawn Jones casually stomping ridiculous tricks and generally defying authority.

Woolrich John Rich & Bros. | F/W 2015

Woolrich John Rich & Bros. is celebrating 185 years with an extraordinary collection. It's divided into three themes. The "Authentic" line (with pieces such as the railroad vest and hunting jacket) features original American wools from the Woolrich woollen mill in Pennsylvania. "Teton" gets technical with a focus on performance, durability, and protection from the elements. The "Contemporary" offerings--knitwear, felted-wool blazers, fleece chinos--are stylish, comfortable, and casual. You'll be keeping an eye out for this sizzle next fall.
