Adidas Originals Kazuki Kuraishi ZX Moc

Adidas_Kuraishi_ZX_Moc
Adidas Originals' Kuzuki Kuraishi ZX Moc aren't the most beautiful shoes I've seen, but I feel like I've gotten a peek in the middle of a design process or at an unfinished prototype, and that excites me. Japanese designer Kuraishi dug deep to come up with a hybrid design that goes from white in the back to a lower, more modern moccasin sneaker displaying quilted areas. A ZX sneaker sole...

Landmark & Lions Phone Cases

Landmark_and_Lions_Smart_Phone_01
These might be too simple for some folks, but considering how beat-up all my cases get, this should do just fine for me. The Landmark & Lions Phone Cases are still quite smart, but they have a certain handmade quality, not over-polished. The topstitching here makes the case less fancy and more casual, but so do the contrasting linings of felt wool. The best part about Landmark & Lions' phone...

Denham x Child of the Jago

denham_X_child_of_the_jago_02-horz
Dark denim is near and dear to my heart. I think my "family collection" from me and my significant other has every color from black to bleached in the spectrum. But dark? So much indigo and too little time for me, and I am always looking for the next brand or collaboration to swoon over, covet, or gift. Denham and the Child of the Jago got together to develop an exquisitely dark pair of jeans,...

Rag & Bone Debuts Spring-Summer 2011 Collection
We dig a casual-though-still-kinda-upscale loafer or sneaker that goes with just about our entire wardrobe. The new collection from rag & bone definitely fits the bill; the fashion design house recently launched their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which includes some terrific shoes, including a pair of low top sneakers, the classic leather loafer, the Truro derby shoe and the suede sheffield...

Yohji Yamamoto's Slip-On Sneakers

Posted by

yohji_yamamoto_slipon_01
I'm not sure how I feel about these shoes, but they are good for kicking around if nothing else. I think they're stale for Yohji Yamamoto, especially with the colorway and upper style of this sort. There's an unfinished seam along the tongue of the shoe that leaves it looking unfinished or rough somehow, and that's yet another detail that probably could have and should have been refined in the...

The Dolce & Gabanna Charcoal Stripe Cotton Blend Blazer
The blazer-t-shirt-jeans trio is mostly always a winner when putting together a quick and easy outfit. Now if that blazer happens to be from Dolce & Gabanna, well now you've kicked it up a few style notches. This Dolce & Gabbana blazer in particular is a delightful, charcoal cotton blend that features tonal stripes.

The Artifact Lunch Bag

The Artifact Lunch Bag
I'm not here to say there's anything wrong with toting your lunch to work in the traditional brown paper bag. But this excellent Artifact Lunch Bag ($65) will provide that chicken salad sandwich on wheat with a much more stylish entrance at the office lunch table.

Highlight: J.Crew's Cool Carryalls

Posted by

JCrew_Leather_Railway_Bag-horz
Perhaps it's just us (fine, me) who collect too many carryalls for actual traveling needs. In reality, you'd need a winter and summer version of your basic luggage, like a weekender, maybe a rucksack, and a shoulder bag. These items can also be switched with the duffel, the tote, and the garment bag, depending on your personal travel requirements and sartorial leanings. J.Crew's men's bags...

HUMöR F/W 2011-12

humor_fall_2011_01
HUMöR's fall/winter's 2011-12 collection has some pieces that you can easily mix, plus others that are harder to style or that fit into the "arresting but impossible" category. A drop-crotch jean with a button fly? If you're going to pass, considered the mustard-colored rolled-hemmed slacks worn with heavy boots or Clarks and bright socks. Shirts are layered: ribbed sweaters and plaids, flannel...

The 'Strawfut' from Allen Edmonds is one pair of sharp-looking oxfords. The wingtip lace-ups are built with a combination of leather and mesh, featuring a '360° welt construction' to provide exceptional support and flexibility, while a cork midsole molds to the foot for a custom feel.

4Motion Sunglasses By Louis Vuitton
Two things to point out about the Louis Vuitton 4Motion Sunglasses: 1) the cool shades feature four adjustable points, which means the temples can be manually shortened or lengthened to fit individual face shape.

Black Camden Linen Jacket at Oak

Comune_Camden_linen_Jacket_02
During my weekly Oak stalking session, I spotted this great jacket from Comune. Instead of a heavier, structured jacket, you can take advantage of one with lightweight drape. The Camden Linen Jacket features a two-button closure, wrapped buttons, side-slit pockets, and a slit chest pocket. A good sheen on this jacket makes it suitable for pepping up tees. [$172 at oak]

Thom Yorke's Bowler Hat
This past Friday brought with it the much-anticipated release of the new Radiohead album, The King of Limbs. If we can table our intense discussion about Radiohead's return for a moment, let's applaud Thom Yorke on the wicked bowler hat he's presently rockin.'

Acne Mission Bead Shoes S/S 2011

acne_mission_ss_2011
Beaded and bright, these Acne shoes represent one of the few ways you can incorporate sparkles into your closet. Slim and with even slimmer laces, the Mission Bead Shoes for spring/summer have thin wooden soles and a refined shape. A slight stacked heel elevates the shoes and completes the look. These shoes would be great with skinnier pants and a smart jacket. $620 at acne. [via modeman]

You'll need one. [$73 oki-ni]

Furni "Rockassins"? Maybe I can wait to rotate wardrobes to spring around here. Furni's moccasin-boots don't only have an amazing name, but are made from Brazilian leather and have classic, heavy moc laces. After the name, the best part of the moccasin is the price ($98). The sole is crepe and looks quite durable. First production starts on the 21st of February; buying link at selectism. [via...

BB Bruno Bordese Washed Boots

Bruno_Bordese_Oak_01
There's something about these heavy boots' soles that make me like them more and more. While the boots have a classic tough look, there's something lighter or softer about these boots around the sole region. The BB Bruno Bordese Washed Zipper Boots are constructed from 100% leather and have a low boot heel. Silver-tone hardware, cap toe and pull tab. [$464 at oak]
