Rugged, Handsome Menswear: Rivay’s Perfect Collection

first_img Dickies 1922 Collection Offers Some of the Best Menswear Made in America 14 Scandinavian Clothing Brands You Need to Know Raleigh Denim Workshop Makes Jeans with Artistry and Ingenuity in the U.S.A. The 100% Biodegradable Vollebak T-Shirt Is Made From Plants and Algae The Best Men’s Parkas for Braving the Cold Editors’ Recommendations If clothing built for adventure and style is what you seek, the Rivay menswear collection is absolutely the place to go. Beautifully made, handsomely designed and finished with a rugged edge — it’s perfect for the modern man.The brand’s line of thick-knit sweaters, textured T-shirts, vintage-inspired sweats and essential tees & Oxfords is just the luxury-minded (yet approachable) menswear upgrade your closet needs for the rest of the year. That the clothing mixes a balance of style and function is all part of the brand’s design process, founder Jon Ruti said.Coming from grueling hours as an assistant district attorney in New York City, Ruti struggled to find gear that worked outside the office as he pursued hobbies like travel and vintage cars.“Existing brands were either too technical or too fashion,” Ruti said. “I wanted a clean, modern, well-edited collection that looked natural while going to and from my weekend passions.”And so started Rivay, with a design sensibility that calls to mind the downtown cool of NYC and the rugged appeal of upstate — or anywhere adventure calls, really.Made in North America, the collection is enough to outfit any guy from head-to-toe. That includes the functional and sleek Keats Hooded Parka — Ruti’s favorite piece in the line — and carries over to the Hopper Selvedge Oxford Workshirt, a modern and still rugged take on the classic shirting style.And Ruti’s NYC background can be seen throughout the line — as Ruti says, the city is a hard place to get around and look good without your clothes taking too much of a beating.“Living and working here gives us insight into how our designs should function,” he said. “ …  NYC is a place where classic and modern exist in harmony. It’s a characteristic that informs our designs.”Take a piece like the handsome (and extremely limited edition) Renn Cable Sweater. It’s made from Italian alpaca wool-blend yarn and features the kind of comfort and warmth that’s plenty ready for layering up on a commute and hitting the road out of town on the weekend.Even the brand’s T-shirts call to mind both modern and vintage inspirations — the slub cotton jersey tees pair just as well with today’s leather jackets as they would’ve in downtown NYC decades ago. And right down to Rivay’s moto sweats, there’s a blend of the technical and stylish that can’t be beat.“Our silhouettes are clean, modern and made to stand up to daily life,” Ruti said. If that’s the kind of menswear you need more of in your wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with Rivay.last_img read more

No. 24 Fresno State outlasts No. 19 Boise State in snow

first_img By signing up you are agreeing to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service. Share: Fresno State (11-2, No. 25 CFP), which was 1-11 two years ago before Jeff Tedford arrived to right the ship, has completed its return to college football relevance and seems poised to challenge Boise State for conference supremacy in the near future.Boise State (10-3, No. 22 CFP) was victimized again on a big stage by its special teams, missing a 42-yard field goal and having an extra point blocked late in the fourth quarter that sent the game to overtime.Rivers’ game-winning touchdown set off a wild celebration with Fresno State players sliding across the snow-covered field and making snow angels. And after losing all nine games the Bulldogs had previously played on the Broncos signature blue turf, the celebration was a long-awaited one.Tedford shook his head when asked about finally leading Fresno State to a win on the blue turf.

(AP Photo/Steve Conner) Photo Gallery McMaryion was 20 of 32 for 170 yards and one touchdown, and Rivers led the Bulldogs on the ground with 63 yards. Mattison rushed for 200 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries for the Boise State. Rypien threw for 125 yards, completing 15 of 31 passes with one touchdown.Boise State’s last overtime game at home was a 69-67 victory over Nevada on Oct. 14, 2007.POLL IMPLICATIONSFresno State: The Bulldogs won’t move up much but could gain a spot or two after a few teams ahead of them lost this weekend.Boise State: The Broncos aren’t likely to remain in the polls, but should have a chance to finish ranked with a win in their bowl game. UP NEXTFresno State: With UCF’s victory likely securing the Group of 5’s spot in the New Year’s Six bowls, the Bulldogs will head to the Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 15 for a matchup with a Pac-12 team.Boise State: The Broncos will find out the location and foe for their bowl game Sunday afternoon following the Bowl Selection Committee pairings announcement. An opportunistic Fresno State struck first, turning Brett Rypien’s fumble into a touchdown when Marcus McMaryion hit Michiah Quick on a 15-yard strike,Rypien atoned for his mistake by driving Boise State and hitting Sean Modster on a 10-yard scoring play to tie it.The Bulldogs cobbled together a 13-7 lead on Asa Fuller’s field goals in the second and third quarters.With 8:01 left, Boise State’s Alexander Mattison ripped off a 34-yard run, muscling his way into the end zone with a defender draped on his back. However, Hoggarth’s extra point attempt was blocked by Matt Boetang, leaving it tied. Share: “It was hard sledding tonight running the football, but he just kept battling for yards and made that count in the end,” Tedford said of Rivers, who finished with 63 yards.Boise State’s seven-game winning streak ended, and both teams’ dreams of crashing the New Year’s Six bowl games died when UCF beat Memphis to complete a perfect season.“We’ve played (Fresno State) four times now and they’ve done a good job of getting themselves ready to play every time,” Boise State coach Bryan Harsin said. “Congratulations to Fresno. We just came up short. And the bottom line is that’s what it comes down to_and we didn’t do that tonight.”With the temperature in the 30s and a constant mix of snow and rain falling, the teams struggled to sustain anything offensively. “The blue turf thing again?” Tedford asked with a smirk. “I don’t know how many times I have to say it – and the field wasn’t even blue tonight, it was white – it doesn’t matter what color it is, you’re playing a good football team and a well-coached team.“Our players had another opportunity to come here and play a great football team and come away with the victory. It’s hard fought and rewarding.”When Tedford arrived at Fresno State — a program that built a national reputation on former coach Pat Hill’s mantra to play “anybody, anywhere, anytime” — the program was a shell of its former self.But one of the first recruits Tedford pursued was Rivers, whose father Ron Rivers starred at Fresno State in the early 1990s and played six seasons in the NFL, and Tedford coached there as an assistant.

Outerknown is Throwing it Way Back with the Woolaroo Wool Swim Trunk

first_img Next Patagonia Goes 100% Sustainable with New Line Called Shell, Yeah! 14 Scandinavian Clothing Brands You Need to Know Previous $125 from Outerknown Using the latest spinning techniques from Woolmark, the Woolaroo is built from a performance Merino created without any chemicals or synthetic finishing agents. Points to the brands for going chemical free, but where the duo really rack up the nods in their favor is how the Woolaroo wears.Wool is naturally breathable and resistant to odor. It’s also fairly water-resistant and quick drying, making it one of the best fibers for outdoor wear around.“The Woolaroo perfectly sums up the soul of Merino wools,” Woolmark Company Managing Director Stuart McCullough notes. “Soft on skin but tough enough to handle the elements, wool is not only the world’s oldest fiber, but also the most technically advanced with modern manufacturing techniques, making the best even better.”We like the simple, streamlined look of the shorts on top of all the benefits already mentioned. These trunks would look as good off the beach as they do on a board and their quick-drying, long-lasting nature means you can easily move from hanging ten to having a couple of post-surf shots with your buds.For other, non-wool swim trunks to get you surfing this season, check out some of our other favorites. How to Choose the Best Organic Mattress for Greener Sleep center_img 1 of 3 9 Socially Conscious Sweaters for Cozying Up in Comfort This Fall We’ve come a long way since the earliest Western bathing suits that consisted of cloth wrapped around the genital area during the Middle Ages. Prior to that in antiquity and the classical period, all evidence points to swimming totally nude with no suits in sight. Fast-forward through the Renaissance (when people literally did not swim because they thought it was detrimental to their health, the poor fools) until you get to to the Enlightenment when full-on bathing costumes became the style straight through to the early 20th century. It was at that time when the first men’s swim trunks hit the scene. And they were mostly made from wool until synthetic fabrics were introduced in the 1950s.So, it should come as no surprise that the fashion and performance wear industries are going all-in on this old-school fabric, only with a 21st-century twist.Rather than the heavy, scratchy sweater wool we so often think of when we call the fabric to mind, Outerknown , a brand dedicated to creating environmentally friendly sport and lifestyle wear, partnered with The Woolmark Company to create the Woolaroo swim trunk.“We love collaborating with like-minded brands to push boundaries and chart new territories in sustainable design,” said Outerknown Co-Founder, Kelly Slater, in a statement. “The Woolmark Company’s longtime dedication to authenticity, fiber quality, and supply chain excellence naturally aligns with Outerknown’s ethos, and we’re so excited to launch the world’s first Merino wool trunks together.” Outerknown Woolaroo Merino Wool Swim Trunk You Need One (Or More) of the Best Men’s Henley Shirts in Your Wardrobe Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more
