One outfit, two price-points, everything responsibly made.
They say you can’t please everyone, but that hasn’t stopped Beams+ from trying. Their SS15 shirt collection includes oxfords, madrases, ginghams, broadcloths, and chambrays, all of which are made in Japan and have button down collars, single v-stitched chest pockets, and box pleats and locker loops on the back.
Have you guys read Watchmen? It’s my favorite graphic novel, and this Cadet Flight Parka totally seems like something one of the members would wear. While it isn’t quite bullet / bomb / Dr. Manhattan disintegration-proof, it is made in the US out of water-repellant nylon, and has hood and waist pull tabs, and a Read more
It’s great that American Apparel finally fired their piece of shit CEO, but I’d be lying if I said the brand didn’t still make me feel kind of gross. Maybe it’s the visible assholes in their advertising? Whatever the reason, I’m willing to look past it for these Low Top Sneakers.
These Pistol Lake Crew Neck Sweatshirts are made in Los Angeles out of custom-milled 16 oz. french terry, have raglan sleeves and a v-insert at the neck, and only cost $65 a pop. Pistol Lake kind of sounds like the name of some brooding, slow-moving indie drama, doesn’t it?
These Chicago-made Flannels from Stock Mfg. Co. were already a deal when they were priced at $88. But now they’re only $65. I mean, that’s almost too low, right? It’s like, “c’mon guys, these are handcrafted out of Japanese yarn dyed twill, and have custom etched buttons. At least let me pay you $75.”
As the owner of a few Engineered Garments CPO Jackets, I should be able to tell you exactly how the SS15 version fits. But I can’t. Because even though the details are pretty much always the same, Daiki is never not switching up the cut. Every. Freaking. Season.
I took an abstract art course in college that was basically just me splattering paint on a canvas to “represent my raw emotion.” My teacher said she could sense “anger and sadness.” It was an easy A. I wonder what she’d think about these Paint Splattered Belts and Bracelets from Cause and Effect.
According to the Centre Commercial website this Kestin Hare Baseball Jacket is made in England out of a fabric that’s 67% polyamide and 33% tricky. And what is tricky, you ask? I have no earthly idea (and neither does Google, apparently). But, this jacket looks fantastic, is designed by the former Creative Director of Common Read more
For anyone who’s ever wondered what it’s like working for Brad, I’ll tell you: dude is a fucking dictator. Last week, I pitched him denim climbing pants, faux suede trucker caps, and some really beautiful English-made shoes. But did he pick any of that stuff? No. Instead, he made me write about these Outdoor Voices Read more
