In case you're just tuning in. I document men and how they wear their clothes. I'm also very much inspired by and love old cars. Especially love the wear these old cars have in Northern California. So while I currently may not be walking Madison Avenue following men in Hermes or J Press, I am hiking while my pals surf and finding these amazing cars with patches (I'm sure Juan will email me the correct word for), and cars with colorblocking (doors or panels that are a few shades off or a completely different color). Can someone paint this car for me please?
I detest how people 'these days' say 'my friend' or my good friend when they don't even know the person. Matt Singer is a friend. I had the privilege of working with him at JACK SPADE. I was first introduced to Reynspooner from Matt and I'm sure a few other good things. His collection is pretty rad. Here you see just a smidgen of his flavour. Leather lighter covers in cheetah, dalmatian, and tie-dye prints & a version in brown lizard, each comes with mini Bic lighter.
Love these low desert boots w/ the binding of wax or whatever. His short sleeved sweatshirts pretty rad too. He is siting outside the Albam shop which was a new to me really cool shop. Nice oxford banded collar pop-over shirts..
A new Grenson shop with a cool staff. I just found this article and y'all should really appreciate it!
Can't remember dudes name right this second! Matthew?So sick.
My favourite. The Casper.
Different than the gal in Wiliamsburg or San Francisco in the same polka dotted blouse and cut-offs.
Hostem has got to be one of the coolest shops in London right now. Like many I saw, they kept the old exterior or made it look old...
Just some of the brands they carry.Labour And Wait. One of the coolest shops in za vorld right now. they even have their own section at Dover Street Market. They sell kitchen supplies along with Musc from Portugal and Face Cream for the gals. Both come in the same packaging it has been in since the 30's.
Another beautiful building.
The only way to display shirts. At The New Republic this is what the shirts were displayed in. I will have one in my shop one day.
In case you thought I was no longer shooting older dudes who stay killing it. The guy on the steps is here to remind you..
Said his inspiration is all Jerry Garcia. Saw dude outside Levisons on Cheshire Street. Really great 2nd hand mens shop. For a more wordy description check acl.
A few great short sleeved Levi's work shirts. Not insanely vintage but insanely good.. Not just because I work here but because s/s work shirts are kinda good.
I've always been a fan of sammy scarves. I wont get into the history of them..that the mods popularized them, but I been collecting them for years. It always amazes me to find so many in one store.. Long story short, the best scarf to wear all year indoor or out.Some hipness in them streets. But a good look, not mad. At least in London when its summer you can actually wear wool cap and not look stupid. ITS NOT AS HOT AS SAY WILLIAMSBURG where you'll look like a fool in that cap in the summer heat.
A store I have covered here before but as it's my favourite shop in London, and it's been 2 yrs since I've been. I'll share. Not alot has changed which is a good thing.
Some silk robes at their shop across the way which only sells pajamas, robes & ties.
If you know anything about me, I love miniatures. More than actual size sometimes.
LVC created the entire collection in minis. The attention to detail was incredible.
These T's are not the minis, I want one of each.
One of Nigel's gals.
Thyre womens but I'm a try em. If thy'll be out in the USofA.Nigel's cuff.
I like how Sam added the pocket to his T.
Birds in Europe just do the mensshit so well. Oversized Levi's sawtooth and some khakis. Ill Nana.
