10 Things Menswear Nerds Are Obsessed With

"Aspirational" Brands

Brunello Cucinelli, Ralph Lauren Purple Label, White Mountaineering, Finamore, Visvim. What do these labels have in common? Most of their wares are waaayy out of the average guy's price range. Thousands of dollars for a pair of pants? A month's rent for a pair of shoes? It's safe to say there are plenty of men not willing or able to drop that kind of dough. And to be honest, neither can most menswear nerds. That doesn't mean they don't know how to appreciate aspiration though. On the flipside, should they be able to come up on something at a sample sale or get a good deal, that means they'll appreciate it even more. Regular dudes? One look at a price tag is a huge FOH.
