Raleigh Denim Nash-Rinsed Jeans ($285)
Yeah, they’re pricey. But the Raleigh Denim company doesn’t outsource or import anything; they design, cut, and assemble all of their jeans with American fabric right in their North Carolina headquarters. Each pair is sewn with vintage machines and individually signed and stamped. You get awesome jeans and you are supporting American workers.
Aksel Paris Socks Suitcase ($195)
Few guys relish the opportunity to go shopping for socks, which may explain the number of threadbare old socks in most guys’ closets. Well, Aksel’s suitcase is here to help. You shell out for the suitcase, but then you have 19 pairs of high-quality cotton socks that’ll last you a long, long time. And socks are a great way to add bright color to what you’re wearing without dressing like a magical creature. (Translation: It’s a low-impact way to make women think you’re fashionable.)
