If our latest snow storm wasn’t proof enough, our beloved groundhog is calling for another 6 weeks of winter! As horrid as that sounds there are still a few things you can do to keep warm and protected from this merciless winter. For starters, if you haven’t already invest in a winter-coat, we still have several styles left to choose from. Secondly, invest in some great cleaning products. Salt maybe ideal for melting snow, but it’s like acid when it comes to anything else- especially your shoes. There are two main ways of removing salt stains from your shoes, the hard way or the Jason Markk‘s way. Our Jason Markk line-up has everything you need to stay salt free this winter.

Step 1: Jason Markk Quick Wipes


Quick Wipes come individually packaged making it convenient to have a couple on you at all times – whether you’re headed to the club, school, or…anywhere! Each wipe is dual-textured for the ultimate in cleaning versatility on the go! One side of the wipe contains small blue dots which offers a slight abrasiveness and comes in handy when working out tougher stains – while the softer white side is great for general cleaning.


Step 2: Jason Markk Essentials Kit


  1. Dip brush into bowl of water
  2. Apply liberal amount of solution to brush
  3. Dip brush back into bowl of water
  4. Scrub shoes creating foaming action
  5. Wipe clean with cloth or towel, repeat steps 1-5 as needed
  6. Air dry

Step 3: Jason Markk Repel Premium Water and Stain Barrier


From the maker of The World’s Most Trusted Shoe Cleaner, comes Jason Markk Repel. JM Repel creates a durable, breathable barrier that effectively repels liquids and stains. Repel’s water-based formula is safe to use on all materials including (but not limited to) suede, nubuck, leather, nylon and canvas.


Take the hard line with Vitaly’s Kusari bracelet. The chunky, stainless steel piece has a modern rocker vibe that complements off-duty gear (think denim, plaid and lots of black or white tees) and works to add a finishing detail to casual evening looks.

What is Kusari? Kursai was used in samurai armour from the 1270s but particularly from the Nambokucho period of 1336-1392. The rings were lacquered black to prevent rusting and were always stitched onto a backing of cloth or leather. Kusari was often concealed entirely between layers of cloth.

Axelrad NYC’s intertwining vine of thorns lends simple attire a definite hit of edge. Inspired by its city of origins tough and gritty exterior, the hard silver bracelet haphazardly circles the wrist three times. Pair the piece with vintage tees, worn denim and motorcycle boots.

Style Tips

Let’s start by agreeing that whoever said that men shouldn’t or can’t wear colourful trousers was probably colour blind because if you think that coloured pants make you look any less of a man then you’ve seriously got it backwards. From celebrity hotshots, to athletes, to GQ’s best dressed, everyone is embracing this growing trend, correction style, and it’s about time you did too. This isn’t about jumping on a “trend” but rather embracing a style aesthetic that has been around for generations and North American needs to catch up.

Not matter the occasion, formal, business, social or casual, coloured trousers are easy to style and are guaranteed to help you stand out from the pack. Check out these great looks for inspiration on how you can incorporate this style in to your closet.
