Contest

It’s been a couple months since I’ve hosted a giveaway on Scout Sixteen but I couldn’t be more excited to revive the tradition with one of my current favorite e-shops, Kaufmann Mercantile. Kaufmann Mercantile curates the most spectacular array of products ranging from must-have home goods to handcrafted clothing you’ll want to wear all season.

A quick peek through the site will prove there are pieces to fit any personality; but for this special giveaway, I’ve decided to highlight two different personalities with their own prize packages: The Traveler and The Bon Vivant.

The Traveler:

This package is for the guy (or gal) who makes looking stylish on-the-go a priority. He spends more time in planes, trains, or automobiles than he does in his own home. He finds no greater joy than in the process of discovery.

Includes: Navy Canvas & Leather Weekender, Copy of Man of The World, Pair of Fingerless Gloves, Pair of White-Striped Socks, Jar of North Carolina Peanuts

The Bon Vivant:

is for the intellectual with a passion for culture. This guy (or gal) acts like a sponge soaking up every exciting opportunity to educate and stimulate. He is a lover of life’s little pleasures and seeks to carve out his place in the world.

Includes: Denim Bow Tie, Navy Canvas Carry-All, Waxed Canvas Pouch, Postalco Notebook, Set of Blackwing Drawing Pencils, Brass Pencil Sharpener, Horn Pocket Comb, Hot Cocoa Mix, plus a $25 Gift Certificate

Entering is easy and can be completed below*. Be sure to comment on this post with the prize package you’d like to win – as there will be two winners (one for each prize package). The more points you get below, the greater your chances of winning… and some of the options can be done every day.  Good luck!

Skin Deep

Scout Sixteen - Skin Deep Scout Sixteen - Skin Deep Scout Sixteen - Skin Deep

It’s no surprise I’m always on the move. Any avid readers of Scout Sixteen know my schedule gets quite chaotic. Each week, I board planes, trains, and automobiles headed towards unique story opportunities. With each new destination, my skin takes a stressful beating through swaying temperate climates or an overall lack of hydration. My busy schedule has left my skin feeling tired, sagging, and dull.

To combat this, I’ve been using the newest additions to Kiehl’s Facial Fuel men’s line, the anti-aging powerhouse called “Heavy Lifting”. Every night before bed, I dab my eye area with the Facial Fuel Heavy Lifting Eye Repair and then use Facial Fuel Heavy Lifting Anti-Aging Moisturizer all over my face. I’ve noticed some of the fine lines in my face have definitely softened and my skin overall is already looking fresher and more hydrated than it has in years!

I want to look like I’m in my mid-twenties forever. Now, I’m one step closer. Read More

A Little Luxe

Fall came like a swift messenger in the night. Just yesterday I was sweating through t-shirts and today I’m struggling to layer up. I recently received some pretty spectacular pieces from 7 For All Mankind, including this mixed-material jacket and these black jeans from 7FAM’s new Luxe Performance collection. Like my morning coffee or pizza nights with friends, I’d say wearing luxe denim is part of my growing list of ‘little indulgences’. The enduring fit and unique feel of this particular pair of jeans has me in extra-sensory heaven (which can be attributed to the exclusive brushing process that gives the inside of each jean a cashmere-like feel).

Baker’s Man

Mondays are always so damn hectic. With everyone back in their offices, the emails and deadlines come back in full swing. Tuesdays, on the other hand, are far more relaxed; I get to take a moment to collect my thoughts, enjoy a little free time, and solidify blog posts for the week. While I rarely have a day completely free, I do allot Tuesdays as my “day of rest” – I realize this is not normal, but I’ve always said normal is for boring people. Wouldn’t you agree?

I decided to sport a bit more polished look today and opted for almost head-to-toe Ted Baker. I’ve been a fan of the brand since we first started collaborating last year. If you’re not familiar with Ted Baker, it’s about time you educated yourself (and your style) with the brand’s classic blend of British smarts and American prep. Aside from the clothing, my favorite pieces from Ted Baker are the accessories… and these spectacular brogue boots are no exception. I mean – just look at these beauties! If you’re ready to start upgrading your wardrobe for fall, Ted Baker is offering customers 20% off everything in-store and online on Thursday, October 9th. Get on it, friends!

Excited to share this look I shot while I was in Los Angeles last month. I love a casual outfit and this one is no exception! This t-shirt is from designer John Elliott in his collaboration with GAP x GQ. If you haven’t checked out his pieces at GAP, head on over now.

Back to Black

Scout Sixteen - Back to Black Scout Sixteen - Back to Black Scout Sixteen - Back to Black Scout Sixteen - Back to Black Scout Sixteen - Back to Black

Before moving to New York, I had heard all the warnings: “It’s a dirty kind of chaos”, “You’re going to end up working all the time!”, and “I bet you’ll start wearing all black”. The latter of these warnings was one I feared the most. I used to have such a colorful wardrobe – a bevy of favorite patterns, palettes, and purveyors. After six years of living and working in the City, my closet is 80% black and navy, and I can say I rather enjoy it. There is a certain “in the know” power that comes from wearing so much black. It isn’t scientific but it’s there; any New Yorker will tell you so.

Bulls Eye

After a week recharging my internal battery in Los Angeles, I’m happy to be back on my hamster wheel in New York City. I love traveling but being away from home so often means I’m juggling to keep my home life and travel life in proper balance. My days have been running together a bit, so much so that yesterday I packed my backpack and hiked over to a local coffee shop for work. It wasn’t until a friend texted me that I realized it was Sunday (and not a Monday morning).

This was a look I shot with my pal Anthony about a week and a half ago. If you’ve read Scout Sixteen for a while you know how much I love a sport casual outfit. Comfort is my number one goal when getting dressed every morning. I love this Chicago Bulls t-shirt emblazoned with #23, a nod to Michael Jordan that will never get old. Since I was just running errands, I paired the look with my new Teva sandals and this slick gold necklace from Half United.

This necklace comes with a pretty cool donation, too: half of all proceeds go to fighting hunger across the globe. Over 115,000 children have been fed with purchases made on Half United since 2010! I always like knowing my money is going to a great cause.
