The thing about form & function
*In partnership with Olivers
…is that sometimes you need both. Whether you’re catching a flight, biking across town, got a long day of meetings, or furiously running errands before a nice dinner, you need comfort (and to look good while doing it).
Olivers designed this dope pair of jeans just for that. Looks like denim, and daily performance. It’s the rite of passage you need.
Check em’ out here. Price: $148
My obsession with jackets
Ok. I keep finding too much dope outerwear. And I know we’re hitting summer, I just can’t help but keep wanting more dope pieces for the wardrobe. So here’s the latest roundup of pieces I’ve found that I just dig.
The storm coat from Quaker Marine (fisherman vibes)
The Reese Cooper DIY jacket (yes, you actually have to make it, don’t worry they’ll teach you)
A phenomenal looking beach pullover from Snow Peak
This Embroidered chore coat worn by my guy Mark from New York
Ralph, LV, KITH… now Snow Peak made a restaurant
We’ve already seen brands dip into the food & beverage scene, from Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar, to Louis Vuitton’s Le Café V, and KITH’s Sadelle’s in Paris.
NEXT UP —> Snow Peak (one of my favorite outdoor brands) just entered the hospitality game, launching a flagship space in Portland Oregon.
Snow Peak is arguably one of the most important outdoor brands that doesn’t get enough attention the way Patagonia and The North Face do. Born in Japan in 1958 as a simple outdoor brand for outdoor people, their new space is a phenomenal manifestation of the brand they’ve been cultivating for decades.
This is experiential retail at its finest—a place to shop, try out new gear, eat & drink, and buy into the Snow Peak experience, complete with Japanese sensibilities.
I will be paying them a visit when I’m in Portland next.
And some shirts too
This flower lace summer shirt from Japan
The classic pearl snap West Major
This unreal pattern work from Old Joe
This breezy banker stripe shirt from Howlin’ Knitwear
TRY THIS ONE
Koio made their own Birkenstocks… I’ll let you judge if it feels right or wrong.
Buck Mason FINALLY dropped t-shirts for women. And they’re damn comfy.
WM Brown Project wrote a book about Negronis, and it’s out next week.
Gearing up for the Euros
The good blokes at Art of Football just dropped a new collection of upcycled vintage-wear with shirt designs for every European country in honor of the Euros this summer. I’m still trying to find out when/how they release the actual kits (below), because they’re just too clean!
Also check out Classic Football Shirts, they’re stocked with vintage Euros jerseys!
