Filson partnered with Detroit-based Shinola on a super sweet little bicycle called The Bixby. Both companies have strong histories of American manufacturing, making it a perfect fit. The Filson x Shinola Bixby bicycle is Shinola’s interpretation of a 3-speed bicycle for urban adventurers and commuters. The lightweight steel frames and forks are hand-crafted in Wisconsin, by Waterford Precision Cycles and the bicycles are fully assembled in Detroit, in Shinola’s small-scale assembly facility.
The Filson Green bike features stylish bamboo fenders and the special Portland Design Works rear rack with bamboo deck, featuring a custom laser-etched Filson logo. Filson also worked with Shinola on the Tin Cloth bags for the front and rear racks and the front can easily be taken with you as a carry-all for your shopping. Purchase one of these bicycles here. This could be the best holiday gift ever.
Club Monaco just launched its newest collaboration with Canadian brand, Reigning Champ. This small collection is made up of sweats printed with the original Club Monaco logo from 1985. Around the time of Club Monaco’s founding, the logo printed sweatshirts and sweatpants were a staple of the collection, and this is the first time in over a decade the logo will be used in a large way. The brand partnered with Reigning Champ to pay homage to the logo, while also staying true to their Canadian roots. Check out the collection here and get cozy in this cold weather.
It’s time to hunker down and admit that layers and boots are on the agenda for the next few months (even for those of us wimps in SoCal who feel the need to layer up in the low 60s).

In addition to the new winter-proof Ice Cutter are nine more styles plus classic designs like the Chukka and 6″ Moc are also available in new leathers this season.

Patagonia just release a short film that takes you on an off-the-grid surf camp in Baja, Mexico, a family’s maple syrup harvest in Contoocook, Vermont, an organic farm in Ojai, California and into the lives of a champion skier, a National Geographic photographer, and a legendary alpinist. The idea is to celebrate the stuff you already own… an antidote to Black Friday & Cyber Monday, if you will. Watch the full film here. In addition to the video premiere at 15 retail stores (retail list here) Patagonia will also be launching its repair collaboration with iFixit to encourage consumers to repair their old products instead of buying new. Find out more in-store or here.
