N’East Illustrated, Vol. 49

Friend Jules Davies is always on the road to cool and interesting places for her gig as a photographer (and she’s very good to boot!). Loved this shot of her in the Bonneville Salt Flats. She can rock a hat and bandana unlike anyone else I know.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Buck Mason is really nailing it in the men’s essentials department. It’s not just that they make great basics, it’s that they make great basics you feel totally cool in. Even if you don’t have an awesome vintage truck to lean against.

Best Made Co. traveled to Uruguay to shoot the famous chef, Francis Mallmann, at his restaurant, Garzon, for their No. 15 catalog. The highlight of the shoot, in my opinion, is this pup Luna wearing one of their Tenuguis. That smile!

Just like Brad got all flustered over these new Apolis chambray shirts, so did I. Meticulously tailored by a 90-year-old Honduran tailoring cooperative? Check. Crafted from organic cotton? Check. Mill-washed in accordance with the Global Organic Textile Standard? Check. Reasonably priced? Also check. I mean, at $98, you can get both colors.

Alison Carroll and her husband Jay Carroll are not only a creative consulting duo, they also launched an olive oil brand, Wonder Valley, a few years back. Since then, I’ve seen their iconic black bottle popping up in all of my friends’ kitchens. Their remote desert oasis has rooms for rent (a cabin and a blue trailer!), and a flagship store with complimentary household goods. And, Alison is one of my favorites to follow on Instagram for her effortless style.
