WINTER FITS TO CONSIDER:
Came across these fits this week and wanted to share the inspiration!
ON THE GO:
Jeff Staple remade this iconic, 1950s lounge chair and it looks SICK (video).
The Rowing Blazers x NBA drop was a nod to MJ’s dorm-room at UNC (video).
MSCHF destroyed these Hermès birkin bags and made BIRKINstocks.
Throwing Fits podcast shows Drake’s around NYC (editorial).
90s Anxiety and Patagonia nostalgia…
5 PRODUCTS I DIG:
Bode NYC’s one-of-a-kind jacket.
GoodHood and Vans made a wonderful skate shoe.
L'ECHOPPE Japan with this clean Mackintosh-esque coat.
JJJJound took a bomber jacket and turned it into a weekender bag.
A bit about outerwear…
Came across this piece on Manready Mercantile’s IG page and it looks phenomenal. It’s actually from Freenote Cloth, a brand owned by two brothers based in California. I once got to visit their studio in San Juan Capistrano, right near the beach.
Here’s a bit about the piece and its background:
“The Keynot is Freenote Cloth’s reinterpretation of a classic hunting jacket. Based on a vintage piece we found in Alaska and updated with military inspired details, the Keynot is the most complex jacket we have ever made… The overall fit is tailored, without sacrificing mobility. The Keynot is offered in two versions. The first is a recolored cold war era camo, printed on Japanese textile. The second is an olive colored Bedford style cord from Japan…”
That’s what I call it. Not gonna knock it though, that thing looks COMFY. I bet it’s more like a weighted blanket. Honestly, though, what a genius idea to have your daily uniform for all Hangouts / Zoom meetings we sit in on everyday.
Would you pay $300+ for this?
