The Man in Cashmere: Naadam and Three Types of Sweaters for Men

THE MAN IN CASHMERE.
 
 
 
Ooo, you feel that breeze— it’s a little chilly outside. Shorts move to the back of the closet and sweaters to the front. Well, actually, we’ve joined the Kondo movement so shorts can stay where they are… but multi-seasonal closet organization aside, sweaters are what we are about to move into our daily rotation. The thing is though, this year is the year of cashmere.  Our crew necks and shawl collars aren’t simply sheepswool or cotton, we’ve upgraded to grown man status. Pass the cashmere please. 
 
 
 
And to get us started on our new winter fabric of choice, we introduce Naadam Cashmere. Naadam is looking to bring out the inner nomad in us all. You see, Naadam isn’t just your typical luxury cashmere sweater. They fall into that category, of those people, you know the ones that insist on being socially responsible and supporting the actual economic growth and livelihood of a particular group of people? Yea, those folks. And in this instance that group of people are nomadic herders. 
 
 
 

So we’ve chosen to experience 3 responsibly sourced Italian-made luxury cashmere sweaters to show our Urban Gent family. The cashmere cardigan, the cashmere high neck (turtle neck alternative), and the cashmere coatigan – all stylish and ready to keep you warm for many winters to come.

Mini Urban Gentleman: LACOSTE x TUG Fall Winter KIDS Look Book

TUG x LACOSTE: LA VIE EN COULEURS

We teamed up with iconic luxury sportswear brand Lacoste to create a special Mini TUG LookBook entitled, "Life in Color" or "La Vie En Couleurs" to pay tribute to the french brand. Our approach and idea was simple — we wanted to display elegant colorful clothing on beautiful children in a sophisticated yet playful setting. The "Los Trompos" outdoor interactive exhibit at The High Museum of Art was the ideal location… in fact it was the biggest inspiration for this season's Mini Urban Gent Look Book. While this feature was initially centered around the original and kid sophistication of a mini Urban Gent, we decided to include what is the ideal mini Urban Gent girlfriend as well — who's equally as fashionable and beautifully compliments his style. Needless to say this was a fun look book, it was a sunny day full of laughter, spinning art, skateboarding, drawing cool logos on sidewalks, basketball, and playing fetch with a toy parti poodle at a beautiful museum.

How to Pick the Right Dog for Men: Budget, Breed, Lifestyle

No Urban Gentleman and Gentlepup series would be complete without a TUG Guide to Picking the Right Dog for You.

When on the search for a new pup the selection process can be as simple or detailed as you would like.  Three years ago, when I was on the hunt for a new dog, there were a few things I knew I HAD to have: he needed to be small (I lived in an apartment), he needed to not shed (I didn't want to have to constantly cleanup hair), and he needed to be smart (I couldn't deal with slow/stubborn dog at that point in my life, lol ;). Those parameters narrowed down my list pretty quickly, so similarly I would advise you to  follow the steps below when choosing a new dog.

List of 6 Steps to take when Searching for the Right Dog

1. Think about your lifestyle and what you want and need from a dog-– write down your findings. This doesn't have to be long, just a few sentences. After doing this you'll probably already have a few breeds in mind that you think could work.

2. Decide what size you want: Small, Medium, Large. This will largely depend on where you live and on your purpose for having a dog.  Are you in the suburbs or city? 1 bedroom apartment or 6 bedroom townhouse?  While there are big dogs that do well in small spaces, its always best to try to keep the dog's size proportionate to your living situation.

Also get down to the nitty gritty of why you want a dog– just for companionship?  to play sports/be active with? to be an extra layer of security? If your sole purpose is to just have an on-call co-pilot then you may be more keen to have a smaller size. On the other hand if you want a dog that can be your canine bouncer then you'll likely want a pup with more build and stature.
