Rainy day movie selection


VISVIM 01 non washed social sculpture

































Hands down one of the nicest washes around. The denim has a dry hand feel since it has been distressed without having been in contact with water, thus the name "non washed".
This is the VISVIM 01 fit, which means they are a classic straight with selvedge lining (most of their other fits do not have selvedge). This fit also features a button fly. At the moment I am wearing a lot of looser fits contrary to all the slimmer cut denim's that's on the market right now.

Got them! Adidas Stan Smith 2014 re-release

























This is the new re-release of the Stan Smith. Available somewhere in 2014, but I already received mine through a very limited pre-release (30 pairs) at Dover Street Market in London.

The thing with cargo pants...





Basically I like the look and attitude of cargo pants. That military feel, the rugged exterior. But, when it comes down to the detailing I hate the cargo pockets on the side. You are now thinking; isn't that the whole thing that makes it a "cargo" pant? Hmm, nope. Some are available with the pocket on the upper front leg, like my Engineered Garments Ghurka pants you see in the pictures. It will give you the same look and feel, but in a more updated version.

Sick


























Sick of seeing everybody (read; hipsters) running around in the same Nike's (read; Roshe or Flyknit)? Then try these Mayfly Woven QS.

Still good.


WigWam Cypress Socks






































Although best suited for winter, these cypress socks could also be worn in spring or fall since they are a mix of 70% cotton and 30% nylon. My main attraction to these socks however is not practical though, but purely the melange look to offset the dandy feel of my Alden's. Available through Woodlandsshop.

Summer Essentials









































You scroll through the style blogs and you see those cool guys without socks? Nope, you're wrong! You are being tricked into thinking that they go sockless. Nobody wants to stink up their fresh sneakers or dress 600 euro Alden's!

A.P.C. Selvedge Type 2 Jacket




In the past all A.P.C. denim jackets were selvedge and produced in Japan. Then they moved their production to Tunesia and the Japanese selvedge versions are quite rare. In the pictures a Japanese production.

New York Black Yankees 1936 Ball Cap










































Ebbets Field Flannels have been remaking vintage baseball caps for over twenty years now, and for that Yankee-doodle dug-out vibe, their caps can’t be beat. The New York Black Yankees 1936 Ball Cap is a replica of the hats worn by the New York Black Yankees. Up until the late 40s, black baseball players played in what were affectionately known as the ‘Negro Leagues’. The New York Black Yankees were one of the most popular teams in the league, but interestingly they were also one of the worst, finishing in last place in ten seasons of the National Negro League before folding in 1948.
