It has a tailored fit that keeps the outfit looking clean regardless of what you pair it with.

The new hot item for the 2011 cold weather is the jacket you could never earn - a sports varsity jacket. It seems that every designer from every brand is taking their own spin on the varsity jacket but most of them are at least $1000. At least the True Religion Varsity Jacket comes in at half the price. I think you might get more style points if you managed to score a vintage jacket from Weed High School in California.
Black weekender? Brown weekender? Why not pick up something a little more exciting like the Lotuff & Clegg Red Leather Duffle Travel Bag. This USA made (crafted in Massachusetts) Lotuff & Clegg weekender is made from hand selected ‘Origins' tumbled vegetable-tanned leather, contains solid brass RiRi zipper and hardware and natural suede backing to keep it looking sharp.
The only thing that strikes me about this bag is that it does not have metal feet to protect the bottom. Maybe Lotuff & Clegg weren't fully thinking things through or maybe the leather is so tough and buff that they weren't required? I guess someone is going to have to make the purchase and put it through a heavy travel season.
The Nike MAG was perhaps one of the most wanted shoes the Nike fan club never got their chance to get their hands on. It first appeared to our delight in the 1989 movie Back to the Future II by the young actor Michael J. Fox as the character of Marty McFly. Now many years later Michael J. Fox, The Michael J. Fox Foundation and Nike have teamed up to introduce the 2011 Nike MAG shoes to help raise money to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
The 2011 NIKE MAG shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the original from Back to the Future II. The aesthetic is an exact match, down to the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap. The 2011 NIKE MAG illuminates with the pinch of the “ear” of the high top, glowing for five hours per charge. 1500 pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each day for the duration of the ten-day auction, one hundred and fifty pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG shoes will be made available via eBay’s Fashion Vault. The auction started on September 8 and will end on September 18. You can find more information, view the entertaining videos or just admire the shoes in more detail at the 2011 Nike MAG website.
