Here is a short collection of some great things for dudes.
Oars + Alps Best Men’s Skincare – I was introduced to this me’s skincare line from an client/friend of mine. Immediately I was attracted to the concept and grew more fond of the brand after I heard the story behind it. Here is a brief background…
“Mia and Laura were frustrated in finding the perfect gear to protect their husbands’ skin from the extreme conditions of their outdoor lifestyles…both avid rowers, skiers, snowboarders, and cyclists (hence the name, Oars + Alps). Every option was too expensive, full of chemicals, tailored to women, or just plain inconvenient. Sasha is prone to skin cancer. Stoney has extremely dry skin. Both had long relied on chemical-packed products and their wives’ expensive creams. So with Mia’s MIT science and engineering expertise and Laura’s ecommerce and marketing savvy, they set out to make something better.”
Since I am outside all the time either on the beach training, paddle boarding, or surfing — In the mountains hiking, biking or skiing this was the perfect match. The objective is to give active guys the best possible skincare with the most powerful ingredients – all without the hassle, toxins, and massive markup.

THE CASSETTE COMPANY EYEWARE – I was introduced to this cool sunglass/optics brand that has some great style and design concepts. Not only do they have a solid product that is reasonably priced for the quality, they are handmade and ecofriendly. What really make it special to me is that fact that they have a program called the “G1VE PROGRAM”. Basically, for every single pair of sunnies and glasses that are sold, they give a pair of reading glasses to someone in need. Now that’s a great way to spend your money and feel good about it!

VEJA SHOES – The coolest sustainable shoe
If you like classics like Chuck Taylor’s, Adidas Samba’s then you will like Veja shoes. I love something about the simple, stylish and timeless.
I particularly like Veja shoes because the story behind the brand. French founders In the early 2000s, Morillion and Kopp were recovering business school graduates who realized they were far too idealistic for the world of business deals and bottom lines. Along there travels and love for shoes. While traveling in Brazil, Morillion and Kopp noticed something interesting—a canvas and rubber volleyball shoe that was popular in that country.
The guys wanted to create something like it, using the small producers they’d met during their year on the road. Before long, Veja’s first shoe was developed as a canvas sneaker with cotton from a small family farm in Ceará, a state in northeastern Brazil.
Today, the company buys more than 30,000 pounds of fair trade cotton every year from more than 320 families. I have no problem supporting that.
