Because "dressing classically" apparently doesn't mean constructing loincloths from pages of The Iliad, there's Askov Finlayson: the latest Dayton Bros venture, opening tomorrow to clothe you right. Built into the same 1881 NoLo warehouse as the Bachelor Farmer and Marvel Bar, AF's handsome, minimalist interior (wood beams, concrete floor, brick er'ywhere) mirrors its rakish wares, with the name itself a nod to the towns on the way to the brothers' Northern MN cabin, meaning they just narrowly dodged the Hermantown Munger bullet.
Hard-to-find, quick-to-warm man-coverings include quilted jackets from Britain's Barbour, flannel-y ish from Woolrich, Momotaro jeans, bodacious surfer sweats from Warriors of Radness, and plain-spoken raincoats from Norse Project, also the crappy building where Thor had to live when Anthony Hopkins kicked him out of the kingdom.
Lest you keep your awesome new duds in a Jansport, they also rock old-school Nantucket-y duffels from century-old New York sailmaker Wm. J. Mills & Co, and basic rucksacks from Swedish outdoor gear co. Fjällräven; plus there's modern shoes and boots from Zuriick, and leather wallets and keychains from Makr Carry Goods, who given their poor grammar, probably can't carry conversation.
Although it's a man's world in there, they do also have stuff that could potentially be enjoyed by non-men, like Donna Wilson's whimsical blankets, pillows, and such, and, from France's Vilac, old-timey wooden toys -- though if you've learned anything from The Iliad, it's that you never know what's lurking within...or behind!
