Have you ever said this?
“I would NEVER spend that much on that product”
“That’s just outrageous!”
“Where does this brand get off charging this much?”
Well, that’s not the case today.
Today’s article is going to cover the 10 luxury brands that are actually worth digging into the pockets a little more for.
These are brands that don’t come with the regretful feeling of buyers remorse.
I’m not talking about your usual suspects like Rolex or Omega either.
These are hidden gems. Diamonds found in a sea of overpriced coal.
Yeah, they’re literally that good.
It takes a lot for me to say something is worth the money.
So why do I feel comfortable suggesting these?
As a quick reminder, it states that Value = Number Of Wears x Feeling/Price
You’ll get the mileage out of every item, which means the value is worth the price.
So…what are they?
Listed below is a list of 10 items that I consider to be worth every hard earned penny spent on them.
There are few simple pleasures in life that can compare to a good night’s sleep. How do you improve the quality of your sleep?
Invest in a memory foam mattress.
Originally designed for NASA airplane seats, memory foam is soft and highly energy absorbent. The material (made from a substance called viscoelastic), molds to the heat and pressure from the body.
When you lie on the memory foam mattress, it softens on contact with heat from your body. It returns to its original shape when the pressure is removed.
Leesa Memory foam mattress is home delivered in a convenient and easy to carry packaging. This is a mattress the whole family (and guests) will love.
The greatest thing about Leesa is their commitment to social entrepreneurship and giving back to the community. You can get any size mattress delivered right to your doorstep and for every 10 mattresses bought one mattress is donated to a homeless shelter.
I practically lived in my Tani thermals this winter. These underwear are odor-absorbing, incredibly soft to the touch.
Tani’s design aesthetic is uncomplicated – there are no hidden pouches or panels. The underwear is designed to be comfortable.
Tani’s boxer brief line is great for any man. In my personal experience it comes down to 3 main reasons:
- Body temperature regulation – Unique knits such as Micro Modal Air are used to create tiny pockets of air that help regulate body temperature.
- Softness – Luxury performance fabrics such as Super Pima & Swiss Cotton are used to deliver a softer feel. The longer and thinner cotton fibers enable a tighter & stronger yarn to be woven – thus a better quality fabric for your briefs.
- Shape and retention – The addition of Lycra and fabrics woven to retain shape provides support and durability to underwear. Higher quality underwear utilizes the wear to better retain shape vs. rely solely on elastic bands. It’s a small distinction, but one that can best be understood when cheap underwear falls apart and you spot rubber band like threads hanging from the seams.
Anson Belt and Buckle is a very impressive business started by a father and son entrepreneur combination out of South Carolina, USA.
David and Frank have created an innovative “hole-less” belt system. In addition, their belt is both stylish and VERY reasonably priced. I highly advise you purchase your next belt from them.
They set out to solve two problems with belts.
- Fluctuating waist sizes
One of the first review I ever posted online was for Anson Belt & Buckle.
You can build a complete belt with interchangeable straps and buckles, which allow you to wear them a variety of outfits. The sizing aspect is comfortable and convenient. The innovative “hole-less” belt system uses micro-adjustable technology to give you a more exact fit.
These belts are both reasonably priced and stylish. I would highly recommend this father-son run family business for anyone needing a good quality belt.
The pick-pocket proof wallet?
How is that possible? For two main reasons.
- It fits in your front pocket (Try getting pickpocketed from the front)
- It has built-in RFID credit card scanner protection
The Rogue Wallet is a simple, no-fuss classic addition to your timeless style.
This practical wallet is designed for daily use and fits comfortably in your front pocket. The curved edge of the wallet mirrors the pocket shape of men’s pants. Keeping your wallet in your front pocket reduces the risk of theft and concerns about back pain caused by bulky wallets in the back pocket.
Fitted with RFID (radio frequency identification) technology, this wallet keeps your credit card details secure and protects you from identity theft.
Made in Maine, this family owned business offers a great selection of wallets. As a testament to their durability, I have been using the Rogue Wallet for the past 3 years!
The Double Monk Strap shoe is one of the most popular shoes in menswear today. It is among the most versatile pair of shoes a man can own.
The Double Monk strap resembles a Derby style shoe with the upper quarters overlapping the tongue of the shoe. The main difference is that the Double Monk Strap does not have laces.
You can pretty much wear these shoes in any environment, with socks or no socks. You can dress up a casual outfit with these shoes or tone down a formal suit with a pair of these shoes.
My default shoes are a pair of Oxblood double monk straps from Paul Evans. This shade pairs extremely well with a pair of blue jeans as well as a navy blue suit.
Double Monk Strap shoes are very stylish and go with a majority of the items in my wardrobe.
Try them out, these could easily become your default shoes as well!
My friend, Aaron Marino (Alpha M) and his friend/stylist, Stephen Posta own Pete & Pedro. They created a line of high quality, paraben-free men’s hair products that are made right here in the USA.
I have been using 4 of their products for the last year and LOVE them.
- Clay: A non-greasy, matte finish, and styling control product, clay adds thickness and body that makes hair feel fatter.
- Paste: Offers medium shine, medium hold. Great for medium and long hair styles.
- Pomade: Designed to give any hair type excellent shine, hold, and control.
My friend Steve, the owner of Vero Linens, sent me a set of the finest bedding I’ve ever owned. The combination of the memory foam mattress and premium linens makes our bed the most comfortable place in North Central Wisconsin.
These Italian made, high-quality cotton bedding will transform your bedroom into an amazing hotel experience.
Quality bedding gives you better sleep and lasts longer.
From experience, I’ve observed that you get more for your dollar out of a high-quality premium set of sheets than you do from an inexpensive and cheaply constructed set.
It is worth spending extra on getting better quality bedding.
After all, we spend a third of our lives in bed!
For the past two years, I’ve worn the same pair of shorts to the gym.
The Strongbody Apparel workout shorts have the best fit and the fabric to suit my workout needs.
Made of 92% percent polyester and 8% spandex, the fabric is reinforced with a coating that makes it odor resistant.
The trim and tailored fit on these shorts ensure that they go right above the knee when lifting weights. They stay close to your thighs and the zip-up side pockets are perfect for holding your cards and keys during a run.
Strongbody makes the best pair of shorts I’ve ever owned.

The stays keep your shirts in place by attaching your socks to the hem of your shirt with adjustable elastic braces.
The 4 thin but strong elastic bands with adjusters for length control and rubber suspender clips on either end are hidden beneath your trousers.
With the correct positioning and length, this type of Shirt Stays hold your shirt in place and ensure that your socks will never slip down.
