01. Front.

Words

Quietly released last week by independent clothing label Bianca Chandôn, Best of Friends is the first record by & Co. The group is made up of Alex Olson, Alberto Bof and Paul T., who met one another in California through surfing and skateboarding. The trio's debut 12-inch "blends the piano-heavy, slo-mo style of Still Going, with twinkling jazz pianos, an air of humid Balearic sunshine, and occasional flashes of Timothy J. Fairplay style acid."

As part of the ongoing FvF x Zeit series, this interview delves into the verdant sanctuary inhabited by Alberto Arango and Ramiro Guerrero in the urban environment of Mexico City. Occupying a 1950s vecindad brimming with plant life, they run a flower shop called Flores Cosmos. The married couple's workshop is right next door to their home, with every square inch of the complex acting as a way for them to exercise their obvious passion for greenery.

Human Made Hickory Hat

01. Screen-printed branding.
02. Unlined interior.

Words

I’m a big fan of both hickory stripe fabric and bucket hats, so this headwear option was ostensibly made for me. The shape and size look perfect, but the most unique detail is the reinforced, bias cut brim. It creates a striking visual alongside the subtle screen-printed branding, reminiscent of the stamps seen on vintage military items.

Tricker's Handsewn Darby for Peggs & Son

01. Gold.
02. Navy.

Words

This season Peggs & Son have collaborated with Tricker’s to produce what seems to be the perfect winter shoe. While commando soles are commonly used by the Northampton-based shoemaker and do suit wet climes, the Dainite option employed here offers equally good traction with a lower profile. This gives the shoe a clean and simple look, while the Y-tip construction and contrast white stitching add some embellishment to a very functional piece of footwear.

Strangeways NYC Pocket T-Shirts

01. Bored Before.
02. On Tour.

Words

One thing I’ve noticed in listening to The Smiths and Morrissey over the years is that they can be pretty polarizing. There are obviously those that are blissfully unaware either way, but few music fans seem to take the work lightly – loving it or hating it, with not much room in-between. These T-shirts from Stangeways NYC would be a great way to show your allegiance to the divisively outspoken frontman.
