So a word to the wise. If you order from up and coming New York-based clothier CXXVI, be prepared to wait. I ordered this sweatshirt on November 2nd, inquired about the status on the 6th, and received a response on the 8th telling me that it would be arriving the end of the week, the 12th. I emailed them again on Monday, the 15th, requesting a tracking number, and have not heard from them yet....
The Rustico tweed crewneck sweater by J.Crew. Made with Alpaca/Wool/Acrylic. It’s starting to get cold up in this piece. This will have to be my last pickup of the season. But it’s a good one… Sold out now; ordered it this morning for $56. Don’t hate.
LVC 1947 501XX Jeans
So I’ve really been digging the Levi’s Vintage Clothing line— I especially love the cut and fit of the 1947 501’s.

HUF Rebels Tee
I keep telling myself that I’ll never buy another t-shirt again. Fool! I recently bought this tee from skate/streetwear brand HUF. I love the “Dirt Bag Crew” theme this year and something about a cat in a boot makes me laugh. Maybe the print reminds me of those old black-and-white cartoons from the 20s and 30s. Bonus: Made in the USA. via HUF
Bean Pole x Band of Outsiders
I recently returned from Seoul, where I was able to visit the Bean Pole shop in Myeongdong. I had vaguely heard of the brand, but never really gave it much thought, since it advertises itself as having a neo-British-heritage aesthetic thing going on. Not that I don’t like the look, but it’s not a dissimilar concept to the outdoorsman/hunting/sporting/workwear theme found in...
Origami + Furoshiki = Orishiki
Naoki Kawamoto unveiled this design for a suitcase at the Tokyo Designer’s Week event. Check out the photos of how it folds- much like the way one would fold paper origami. The other inspiration for the design was furoshiki, which encapsulates the concept of versatility and practicality one can find in a piece of cloth or large handkerchief used for bundling and carrying objects....
