For Issue 02, we flew down to Cuba to do some long-awaited exploring, gathering all of the cigars and rum the island has to offer. We then returned stateside and dug up even more. In Southern California, we visited the garage-oasis of Mercedes Motoring and obsessed over their immaculate collection of classic Benzes. We wrapped things up with edited guides full of machetes, submarines, golf equipment, sneakers, watches, and skateboards, among other gear.
Inspired by the timeless look of 007, the Mack Weldon Vesper Polo brings effortless style to your wardrobe. To pull it off, the company created a lightweight knit fabric that uses micro mesh to enhance breathability, and high-end, fine-thread cotton for added comfort and a smoother look. The collar keeps its shape wash after wash, the chest pocket gives you a little added on-the-go storage, and the modern, tailored fit pairs well with everything from shorts to sport coats.
