Maybe it's because you just screened Liam Neeson's existential arctic wolf chase, The Grey, but this limited edition coat from British outfitter Nigel Cabourn is howling your name. Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Captain Robert F. Scott's final, fateful Antarctic expedition, the Sleeping Bag Jacket is inspired by the sheepskin sleeping bags that the 1912 expedition party made themselves. Nigel Cabourn worked closely with the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge, spending six years researching the expedition and focusing on the clothing and gear the explorers used. The jacket is crafted in Scotland by Aero Leathers. The book is included.
And for good measure, this delightful interview with Mr. Cabourn, in which he describes his mission as a designer.
Teen entrepreneur Jack Uesugi is launching a scholarship program for student artists through his company a1000x, and in partnership with TeeSpring. The first T-shirt design features a version of the a1000x motto: "Respect Art: Go Forth and Make Some." All profits from the shirts go toward supporting future artists. The goal is to get at least 200 pledges in 10 days or the shirts will not print. You'll only be charged if the campaign succeeds. Plus, your pledge gets you a 20% discount code for use at a1000x.com.

Outlier just dropped yet another amazingly well designed and constructed pant with a fit that's spot on. The Nyco Slims are Outlier's take on the classic, trim-fitting American chino. They're made from a 9-oz. Nyco fabric, which is an American-made, military surplus blend of 50% cotton/50% nylon. It's gone into rugged military gear for decades. Tougher than raw denim, these trousers will stand up to some pretty rugged wear.
