While TOMS made it’s mark in the footwear market several years ago with it’s unique signature style and social-good platform, it is the wide selection of hip designs combined with more recent organic options that makes them our pick for today’s Manly Monday post.  Made with certified pesticide-free cotton, the Grey Cousteau Organic Cotton Men’s Cordones shown above are just one of the many organic options available.  And, as you likely know by now, for each pair of TOMS shoes purchased the company donates another pair to a child in need.  Click here to purchase this exact pair, or here to browse the entire orGLAMic website.

The brainchild of Los Angeles-based jewelry-designer-turned-philanthropist Tina Tangalakis, Della has already made a huge splash in the short time since it’s inception in 2009.  Employing and empowering the women of Hohoe, Ghana, Della offers one-of-a-kind, handmade, vegan bags and accessories made of sustainable materials.  My personal pick is the Summertime in Yellow Classic Della Bag which would add the perfect punch to any day at the beach – and I love that every item has a label signed by the artist who made it.  Click here to purchase the bag pictured above and here to shop the entire orGLAMic collection including messenger bags, wallets, business card holders and more.
