We’re leveraging some of our Holiday Gift Guide assets for this week’s Weekly Look. Andy is looking handsome in our new Long Sleeve Polo (made out of a unique rugby cotton) layered under our Denim Terry Cardigan. And here’s a secret: The jacket under his arm is our soon-to-land Heritage Jacket (waxed canvas with a striped flannel lining). Jenna is daring anyone out there to look as dashing as she does in our new Olive Canvas Jacket, and as comfortable in a subtle stripe long sleeve.
Brought to you by a hip husband and wife duo based out of Austin, TX, we’re excited to showcase Son of a Sailor. Their subtle, yet colorful products are handcrafted through innovation and storytelling. We appreciate their simple undertones, and think you will too. Not to mention, how cool is their workspace?
We find a lot of similarities between Son of a Sailor’s products and our own – understated and colorful, easy to wear and use. We’ve enjoyed mixing & matching…
Feeling a little chilly?
Like our Ski Tahoe tees, the Camping Shirts are an annually anticipated garment. Made in San Francisco and in very limited runs, the production process for these shackets isn’t exactly low maintenance… but well worth it!
Wovens are some of the most thoughtful and time consuming garments we produce. After sifting through hundreds of fabrics, our plaid palette is curated by our design team. The chosen fabric is then ordered and shipped straight to the heart of the Mission. Each garment is carefully constructed using single-needle, double-needle and overlock stitching. The Camping Shirt’s true ‘specialness’ comes with the ML signature cotton-modal jersey lining, so not only is the shirt warm but also really, really, ridiculously soft (and good looking).
We love making shirts, and after four years we’re even pretty good at it…. But sadly one can only have and receive so many tees, so we figured it may be time to diversify. Not surprisingly we’ve discovered a large number of folks out there working equally hard on their own craft. Instead of spending 4 more years trying to perfect another artistry, we’re excited to introduce ML Found, a collection of goods we love. Officially launching this week online and in stores. Vendor profiles coming soon so you can learn much more about each of these brands.
For our latest weekly look we’re staring winter directly in the face with a defiant eye keeping some fresh color and weather ready gear in the spotlight. Mike wears our classic Otis Woven layered with our signature Lined Hoodie along with our heavy duty, winter repellant Flannel Lined Canvas Jacket, while Lucy wears our new Brushed Chambray Woven and the Sweaterknit Cardigan along with the Stolen Sunday Indio Scarf for a pop of color.
Winter is coming… The lifts are up and running at Squaw in t-minus 10 days, so we can all start dreaming of heavy snowfall and spiked cocoa.
It’s unclear why such a cool sport can lead to such tragically hilarious clothing. Hence our inspiration for these vintage photos…
Next up on our Employee Spotlight is Daniel – by no means an intern and the star of the ML Holiday Challenge. Why him? We have no idea, just seemed like a lay up — every time we hit a holiday-centric goal, we get to undress him right down to … well, wait and find out.
Meet Daniel, our Senior Operations Associate.
How many parking tickets have you gotten in the bus? At least 5 plus I drove the van into the garage door and broke it.
How would you describe your style? I would describe it as hot. Bohemian meets rustic country gentleman but according to my colleagues I never got the memo that parachute tshirts and non-skinny jeans are no longer in style.
How much do you bench? Not enough to fit into a large t-shirt yet so working on that for next summer.
Favorite Restaurant in San Francisco? Love all the shared dishes at Terzo especially the meatballs and the calamari.
Biggest phobia? Snakes. Please elaborate. I am really really afraid of snakes cause they are scary (how do I expand on this one?)
If you’re alone on a desert island, 20 days & 20 nights, what do you do to keep yourself entertained? If alone on an island for 20 days and 20 nights I would probably learn how to ferment coconut milk in 19 days and throw a big going away party for myself on night 20.
We visited the Art Institute this week to enjoy some amazing views and sport our latest gear, with Lucy in our best-selling Boucle Dress accompanied by the Seed Stitch Sweater from the Peru Collection and a Forrest Green Slub Scarf. Andy – making his first appearance since the very early days of ML – was in our new Hammet Woven, the Olive Green Peru Collection Sweater, and a Barn Red Signature Logo Tee. If you wanted to try a variation of this same look, you could trade the Hammet for the Hickory Woven – either way, you’re looking good.
