Duct Tape Bill Holder

Our Duct Tape Bill Holder is a riff on the great American tradition of taking whatever’s readily available and repurposing it into something useful. In this case, we took the image of the homemade, disposable duct tape wallet and printed it on leather.

Brockman Merino Cardigan

Every man needs a cardigan in his wardrobe. Our Brockman in merino wool combines thoughtful details like herringbone tape on the interior placket with a body length that’s perfect to be worn under a jacket.


There is no greater comfort than the feel of a simple pencil in your hand. Its purposeful, no-frills function is very appealing in the age of touch and swipe. I don’t know if this makes me sound like a Luddite, but there’s nothing better to draw with; especially when you’re bored during a meeting.

Slicker Jacket

The inspiration behind the Slicker Jacket is a fisherman’s all-purpose oilskin coat. We constructed ours like a trenchcoat, however, with all of the seams bonded so that it is especially water-resistant. Bill Connolly, a Scottish comedian who’s among my favorites, once said: “there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes.”

Mill Leather Correspondence Bag

Photojournalists’ camera bags travel all over the world protecting their equipment, gaining character as they go. Our Correspondence Bag is built with this in mind. I love to collect cameras, from cheap disposables to the classics. One of my workhorses is an old Pentax K1000 from the 70s — very basic but bulletproof.

Mexican Spinning Tops

While on a quick vacation in Mexico, I found some hand carved and painted tops. They’re beautiful objects, and boy do they spin. Perfect for performing hypnosis or amusing your young nephews for hours.

NY Fashion Week: The Spring 2015 Collection

Minimalist painter Josef Albers understood that color is relationship: one to another, the eye to the mind. Even simple blocks of it, placed with care, can create a whole greater than the sum of its parts. The JACK SPADE Spring 2015 collection explores interactions of color and its ability, through careful application, to lend sophistication […]

“The Long Road” by Richard Haines

Richard Haines is a Brooklyn-based artist, illustrator and designer whose blog, “What I Saw Today,” captures the personalities, stories, and style of New Yorkers he encounters. In the spirit of our summer 2014 collection, we commissioned Richard to create a series of original illustrations about life on the road. “The Long Road” recalls the black-and-white […]

Escape To: Fort Tilden

Used by the military to house artillery until 1974, Fort Tilden‘s abandoned concrete structures are slowly being swallowed up by nature. The beach is the least developed stretch of the Rockaway Peninsula in southern Queens, and an ideal place to bird watch, let the dog off the leash, or just explore.

Escape To: Brennan and Carr

Placed in the center of a busy intersection in Sheepshead Bay, Brennan and Carr is a quintessentially Brooklyn restaurant that’s been in business for over 75 years. As the sign promises, its signature dish is a hefty roast beef sandwich double-dipped in its own broth. You’ll need a fork and knife, napkin and a tall […]

Escape To: The Noguchi Museum

An unlikely refuge from the din of the city, the Noguchi Museum is hidden in plain sight on an industrial block in Long Island City, Queens, across the street from a Costco. Inside, you’ll find a world apart, created under the direction of renowned 20th century Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi in 1985, just three years […]

The Vendor Project

New York wouldn’t be New York without street vendors. They’re as vital to the outdoor life of the city as Central Park and jaywalking. When scouting models for our inaugural sunglass collection, we thought: who better than these men who work outside every day? With photographer Jeremy Sachs-Michaels, we captured portraits of the ice cream […]
