While our last catalogs came with precise instructions to melt the freezing cold of your adventurous boots, we now unbutton the coat switch out the ski goggles for polarized sunnies and grab a hold of our canteen of coffee to watch the snow slowly start to thin. Yes, Spring is waiting for us around the corner (at least down here in the regular altitudes). March Catalog is outfitted as a hybrid of transition out of winter, but also has you dressed for any sudden temperature drops as winter’s ice-cold hands reach out to hang onto the cuff of your pants—nothing your Harland Suede Boot is afraid of kicking off.
As a Spring takes the lead in the endless season race, we recommend acting like the ice. Let any struggles or stresses melt away, with the world working together to get through this still existing challenging time, we undoubtedly can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Let the sun in, thaw the mind, and outfit the soul with our March Catalog, dedicated to dissolving away any doubts, and taking on spring as the best version of yourself.
THE TS ALPHA INDUSTRIES M-51
This sharp jacket made with a 100% organic cotton shell exudes structure and style out of its handsome indigo color. The YKK antique brass zipper in the front is a subtle element that still screams for attention. Not often can a seemingly regular zipper, make the jacket feel so bold. The voice of this coat is that of a man who speaks deeply but not loud. While the cotton liner will keep you warm for the rest of the winter, it’s a perfect article to rock well into this spring. Taylor Stitch didn’t reinvent the wheel with this one, as the M-51 has been around for decades, they did, however, make the wheel look fresher than that dude that started in Philly and ended in Bell Air.
If you know us well here at CYTIES, we love a good wallet. One that feels more like a gadget than a paper weight. The Parliament Wallet + Tracker Card from Ekster is a slim, bi-fold wallet that gives you instant access to all those cards The Points Guy convinced you to sign up for. It includes smart features (yes, a smart wallet) like a solar-powered tracking function and RFID blocking that making it more of an EDC gadget than an everyday billfold. With a push of a button, Eksters card slider tech has all your CC’s right in the palm of your hand for easy access. This is a wallet made for people who believe time is money, built for maximum storage and minimum bulk.
This is one of those collaborations that will have you hypnotized with its absolute awesomeness. Say hello to the Super Seawolf Farallon, a watch born from the exclusive collaboration of Zodiac and Huckberry. This thing is a nautical beast, and the colors hit on spring aquatic tones. Let’s talk about the name (lights tobacco pipe, leans back in squeaky chair) The Farallon Islands are twenty-seven nautical miles off the coast of San Francisco, nicknamed “devils teeth” because of the sharp rocks that surround them. This timepiece pays homage to that environment of harsh elements and bountiful wildlife, such as Great White Sharks. It’s a Limited edition run of only 82 watches, each one numbered on the caseback and powered by Fossil’s Swiss-made STP 1-11 automatic mechanical movement. If you’re an aspiring Jacques Cousteau, this watch was made for you.
Floating somewhere between an invisible wardrobe piece and an underrated member of your pockets EDC. The Clearwater solid Fragrance by Fulton & Roark has hints of Madagascan Geranium and Oak Moss complemented with notes of fresh water. This scent should keep you feeling fresh for the next seven months and is exactly what your upcoming season smells like. Leave the chill in the past and join us in the future. The air is warm, the sun is shining, and the vibe is carefree.
Leather, suede, and rubber. While those sound like they should be rap lyrics, they are actually just the characteristics of ALLSAINTS’s desert boots. Crafted from smooth suede and dusted off with a rubber and leather tread, these bad boys will be your top wardrobe piece this season. Black, brown, blue, whatev’, there isn’t a pant color they don’t go with. If a few more snow flurries fall, all good, sunny days? Even better. There is sunshine at the end of the tunnel, and these boots are taking home.
The right travel pack makes all the difference, especially when it is as sleek and functional as Aer makes them. Travel pack 2 is constructed to take everything you need with you, wherever you are headed. There is plenty of pocket space and a special compartment for your shoes or dirty laundry. Built to withstand the elements, the outer shell is a durable 900D eco-dyed exterior, with YKK zippers and Duraflex plastic hardware, with padded top and side handles for versatile carrying. The saying “pack it up, pack it in” has never been more spot on with the Travel Pack 2, a must-have for any modern explorer and thrill seeker.
What Filson is for bags, Leathermen is for knives. Their products are sturdy, manly, and we can always make an argument as to why more pocket knives are ESSENTIAL. The Crater C33 is simple, but sometimes that’s all we want. It’s lightweight, slim, and has a carabiner/bottle opener clip. In a time not far away all men shall be judged by the EDC they keep, don’t fail the pop quiz, gents. Stay strapped with Leathermen.
Frost thawing streets and landscapes call for steaming hot coffee. If you’re hanging in the alpines or cruising down 5th and Broadway, the Stanley Master Vaccum Bottle has all you covered with a Cold-rolled 1mm stainless steel and Quadvac construction. The lid pulls double duty as a cup if needed, and the Filson graphics on the side will turn some heads with approval. In 1913, William Stanley changed with the game with vacuum insulation. It’s only fitting the company teamed up with Filson, who continues to push the boundaries of excellence when it comes to outfitting. Cheers.
When the words Dark Smoke are mentioned in the color, do you even have to think twice? It’s a color that in some strange way makes you think of Mortal Combat or a vibe that is so stealth that you don’t know why, but you have to have it, be apart of it. Let the tint on these shades speak for you. They say so much without saying a thing. RAEN never fails when it comes to creating optics that carry us into spring. The sky could cry, the sun can fade, and we could have 30 days of darkness, The Adins aren’t coming off.
