You've Labored Hard: Treat Yourself
Your journey to the top may not always be an easy or straight path. Life is filled with twists and turns, and your dreams are subject to setbacks and delays— it’s important to reward your hard work.
With Labor Day weekend headed our way and the end-of-summer blues setting in, we fully embrace the idea of treating yourself (as popularized by the NBC’s Parks and Recreation). For all those lads working their rear-ends off, sacrificing sweat, tears, and more than the occasional night and weekend, we have two words: TREAT YO’ SELF.
TREAT YOURSELF TO…THAT CASHMERE SWEATER
So maybe you and sweaters didn’t get off to such a hot start—those audacious, itchy jumpers your mom put you in as a young lad really cramped your style. But then you discovered cashmere, a material whose name alone evokes luxury. The moment you felt its soft embrace, you knew you had to have it.
life/after/denim’s Columbia Cashmere Crew is the cashmere sweater you’ve been waiting for. Slip on this butter-soft knit and feel like you’ve arrived (no matter how much farther you actually have to go).
TREAT YOURSELF TO…A DATE WITH THE HOTTIE
YOU'VE BEEN EYEING
You’ve traded smiles and even come up with clever excuses to walk by their desk, but you haven’t had the nerve to go for it. Life is for living, and if you don’t swoop in, someone else will. Work up the courage to land the date of your dreams, and make sure your style is on-point when you do—this date should be memorable for only the best reasons.
life/after/denim’s Far East Shirt and Far East Tie (both available in Ivy League, and blue blood) are like Lennon and McCartney, Jay Z and Beyonce, and Nutella and… anything— they’re a perfect pairing. What better way to launch your own perfect match than by donning this duo?
TREAT YOURSELF TO...A WEEKEND AWAY
Whether you go for drunken debauchery with your closest friends, a romantic getaway with your special someone, or a meditation retreat by yourself, a weekend reset can keep your engine running on max-efficiency.
Channel the limitless possibilities of your college days, and put your top-tier sweater game on display, with the sophisticated comfort of life/after/denim’s Collegiate Cardigan. It’s the next step in your sweater evolution, helping you relax without looking like you’re ready to go back to dorm life. It’s a winning—and comfortable—cardigan to impress whomever you’re spending the weekend with.
TREAT YOURSELF TO...CHECKING SOMETHING OFF
YOUR BUCKET LIST
Whether by skydiving, seeing your favorite band live, or traveling to an Instagram-worthy locale, give yourself a rush this fall.
No matter the location or activity, life/after/denim’s Old School Crew is the casual layer for your fall arsenal. Made from 100% French terry—giving it a soft and inviting feeling—it’s a warm hug of stylish courage when you need it most.
