We’ve been inspired by covering the stories of brands and products that we believe can enhance the inner and outer style of our Mr Feelgood community. You can buy some of our favorites here.
Spectacle Magazine is a Feast for the Eyes

Spectacle Magazine is a Feast for the Eyes

The creative offspring of photographer husband and wife, Guy Aroch and Anna Palma, with design by famed graphics maverick Rockwell Harwood, Spectacle magazine is a fresh, advertiser-free, editorial expression on par with the greatest publications of bygone days. It focuses — no pun intended — on all aspects of the multi-gazillion dollar eyewear industry and is smart, sexy, elegant, and provocative without being vulgar. The project is inspired by Aroch’s life in a family of prescription glasses wearers. A must-have for any budding artist, especially those entering the lanes of advertising, fashion photography, or visual messaging.

Podcast Takes Us Inside Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton has launched the Louis Vuitton [Extended] podcast, a deep dive into the iconic brand’s past, present, and future. In the first episode, series host Loïc Prigent (pictured), a French fashion journalist and documentary maker, talks with Pharrell Williams about his first men’s Fall-Winter Fashion Show as Louis Vuitton’s men’s creative director. The conversation is a joyful journey into the inspiration behind the show and the process of the luxury label’s new star signing. And just as intriguing is the insight the series will offer into the other creative minds of the Maison, including Nicolas Ghesquière, creative director of women’s collections; Jacques Cavallier-Belletrud, master perfumer; and Francesca Amfitheatrof, artistic director of watches and jewelry. It’s available for free wherever you get your podcasts.

Stylish to a Tee

Here at Mr Feelgood HQ, the search for the perfect cotton t-shirt is a labor of love. Those who share our obsession should check out Wittmore, a men’s lifestyle shop in Malibu, Larchmont Village, DTLA, and online. Wittmore curates clean and approachable menswear from around the world — including a wide selection of soft, simple, and effortlessly stylish tees. Among their collection is an exclusive collaboration with Velva Sheen; a heritage sportswear brand originally from Cincinnati, OH, that has recently been revived by a Japanese-run, California-based firm. These 100% cotton slub tube tees, recreated from the late 1970s, are made in a circular machine so have no side seams, and hang perfectly on the body for a precise but relaxed fit.

Happy Healing

We at Mr Feelgood were lucky enough to be treated to a perfect double dose of relaxation and nourishment this week, supping Ayurvedic rich blends from Chakra Chai, prior to experiencing the serenity of an Altha Healing sound bath session. We rarely feel this good.

Pharrell's Louis Vuitton Collection Lights Up Phasion Week

Pharrell’s Louis Vuitton Collection Lights Up Phashion Week

Pharrell Williams’ debut men’s collection for Louis Vuitton Spring 2024 has been unveiled at Paris Fashion Week — with his new tune, aptly named Joy, performed for the occasion. And joy was certainly what the pieces elicited and inspired, to rave reviews. Beyonce, Rihanna, A$ap Rocky, Lewis Hamilton, Lebron James, Jude Bellingham, Marcus Rashford, Zendaya, Naomi Campbell, and Kim Kardashian looked on as Pharrell shared his artistic vision for the future of the men’s line, taking up the baton from the late Virgil Abloh. Williams’ collection features statement graphics on hats, caps and eyewear; updated pixelated version of the LV Damier squares on camouflage suits (‘Damouflage’, as worn by himself and his whole family); brightly colored logo bags in every size and shape; impeccably-tailored short suits; bear-footprint soled shoes… and pearls everywhere. Closing the show was a gospel choir wearing white robes — again in the pixelated print — a fitting moment to pay tribute to Abloh whilst simultaneously ushering in a bright new beginning with Williams.

Enjoy Your Time With Panerai

Last week Mr Feelgood were invited guests at the opening of ‘Casa Panerai’, the new Panerai flagship on Madison Avenue in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The esteemed manufacturer of luxury timepieces, which combines Swiss watchmaking know-how with chic Italian design, opened their very first shop in 1860 at ‘Ponte alle Grazie’ in Florence, serving not only as a watch shop and workshop, but also as the city’s first watchmaking school. One of their prize contributions to the high-end watch market is the ‘Luminor’, patented in January 1949 and named with a nod to all the luminescent and self-luminescent materials used. These watches are some of our all-time favorites — rugged, elegant and precision pieces of collectable art that will bridge many generations. If you aspire to owning such a treasure — or perhaps to gift one for the upcoming Father’s Day — our Feelgoods pick this week is the Luminor Marina PAM01312 -44MM. Learn more about the Panerai collections for both men and women at panerai.com.

All Eyes on Jacques Marie Mage

Inspired by our shoot with the actor Tom Pelphrey, photographed at a beautiful mid-century bungalow, are these classic frames from Jacques Marie Mage. JMM produces rare and collectible eyewear which marries quality manufacturing, precious metals, and striking designs with a nod to retro influences. These Atkins frames, made from 100% titanium with a production batch limited to 400 pieces, combine angular edges with subtle curves for the perfect balance of style and function. This small but substantive Los Angeles-based brand continues to raise the bar for spectacle design, and is truly one of our very favorite brands.

Formula Fig: Skin Deep

There’s a new kid on the recently regenerated block of North Sycamore in Hollywood, which in the last few years has welcomed Tartine Restaurant, fashion's coolest Los Angeles store Just One Eye, Supervinyl record shop, and eyewear’s leading maverick Jacques Marie Mage. Formula Fig — originally founded in Vancouver by beauty pioneer JJ Walsh, and with a fifth store about to be opened in Canada — decided it was time to head to the west US coast and open up to the clientele of Tinseltown. Offering transformative skin therapies, stingers (injectables), hyper functional facials (in a schedule friendly 30-45 minutes), and a wide array of covetable products, it promises to fill that lunch break with revitalized skin in the time it takes to queue for your salad. JJ, also a mum-of-three, wanted to create a marketplace where all aspects of skincare were available under one roof, housed in a calming atmosphere and fig-green color palette. We test drove the All-in-One facial which nourished and tightened and will definitely be back for more. Self care isn’t only skin deep but a little lunchtime pampering can do much to sharpen the swagger and make you feel good.

The Celebrity-Tested House of Skuff

Founded by the godmother of men's grooming, Mira Chai Hyde, House of Skuff is the result of more than three decades at the sharp end of the male beauty industry. Mira was a roommate and collaborator of the late, great designer Alexander McQueen, and has had the likes of Muhammad Ali, David Bowie, and David Beckham in her barber's chair. She's used all that experience and creativity to formulate her all-natural House of Skuff products, which proudly state they are 'Tested on Celebrities Not Animals'. Potion No1 is a silky, all-purpose styling cream with a light to medium hold. It can give that elegantly disheveled, no-product look that so many people want, but very few products successfully achieve. Or it can be layered to add more hold for a sharper, slicker style. With more products coming this year, and a portion of all proceeds going to charity, Mira's brand is ready to follow her personal career path and reach the very top.

Dewar's and Jay Fielden Make a Beautiful Couple

Dewar's and Jay Fielden Make a Beautiful Couple

With Valentine's Day around the corner, acclaimed writer and former Esquire magazine editor Jay Fielden has partnered with Dewar's Scotch Whisky to create some unique alternatives to the clichéd messages changing hands at this time of year. From witty pick-up lines to satiric social commentary, these 'Mal-entine's Day' cards are available with the purchase of a bottle of Dewar's 12 Year leading up to the big day. As a part of Dewar's online personalization emporium, folks can choose from 12 cheeky cards penned by Fielden, who the The New York Times once wrote had “the belletrist whimsy of Oscar Wilde and the gunslinger gusto of Wild Bill Hickok." With Fielden's help, you can fire cupid's arrow with a sharper edge this year.

Cashmere Dream

Continuing the spirit of friendship, this issue’s FeelGoods choice is from a business borne out of a gift, from friend to friend. Holistic healer and jewelry designer Sat Hari had a unique button-up cashmere shirt made for her pal Brad Pitt, which inspired a business partnership, and God’s True Cashmere was created. Each shirt is made from 100% cashmere made in Italy, and the yarns are sourced from various ethical goat farms (“We’d love to have our own goat farms [one day]”, Sat Hari told Vogue. “And to name all our goats”, added Pitt.). The shirts are also embellished with 11 snaps, made of gemstones hand-carved in India to represent the chakras of the body. The line already has a cult following, and has since introduced tracksuits, with accessories and blankets coming this winter.

Supplements Fit For Bruce Wayne

When ASYSTEM founder Oli Walsh was asked to create Bruce Wayne's daily supplements, it was a "dream brief" for the self-proclaimed "comic nerd."  Partnering with Warner Bros, Discovery, Uncrate.com, and DC, ASYSTEM are now launching two new products inspired by the wealthy vigilante behind the superhero Batman. Out now is the PRE-WORKOUT+ supplement, powered by the potent mushroom cordyceps, ashwagandha, and beetroot powder to boost energy and improve muscle strength and endurance. And coming soon is the IMMUNITY+ supplement, anchored by the clinically-backed ingredient Elder-Mune, which helps boost our ability to fight off infections, and reduce the duration and severity of respiratory illnesses. The products are part of a broader range of sophisticated lifestyle goods being released under the banner of Wayne Enterprises, inspired by the Gotham protector.

Voicing Change With Rich Roll

The wisdom of endurance athlete, plant-based diet advocate, and podcaster Rich Roll has stuck with us since our interview last year. “Mood follows action,” he told us. “The change in state that you seek is only a result of taking actions.” His inspirational book ‘Voicing Change’ is a highlight reel from his podcast, which is among the most successful in the world of wellness, featuring timeless wisdom from the world’s most accomplished and cutting-edge minds.

Tom Ford Ocean Plastic Watch

Tom Ford’s 002 Ocean Plastic Timepiece helps us to look and feel good. The timepiece is simple, elegant, and made from 100% ocean plastic waste. The equivalent of 35 plastic bottles are used to make each watch and strap, upcycled with 100% solar energy, and the packaging is also made from entirely recycled material. So for every 1000 watches sold, approximately 490lbs of plastic from the ocean is reduced.
