Human Made Campus Sweat

01

Images

—01. Human.
—02. Made.

Words


Plain is best, but every once in a while a sweatshirt like this catches my eye. It will usually feature a collegiate print and a small C above the cuff, but this is something a bit more special. The large applique letters - front and back - won't be to everyone's liking, nor is the price particularly realistic for the vast majority of us. That doesn't stop it from being a great sweatshirt though, and one I'd happily add to the stack of more subdued options in my wardrobe.

—01. Highlighters.
—02. Circle of Seven.

Words

The Norwegian born, LA based photographer Torbjørn Rødland's 'Eighteen Analogue Double Exposures' is currently on display at the Standard gallery in Oslo. The exhibition offers a unique and minimally hung view of Torbjørn's black and white photography, which has previously been seen in books by Steidl, Hassla, and Libraryman. If you don't happen to live anywhere close to Oslo, his work is also well worth checking out online, or in print, if that's the closest you can get.

South Willard in Brutus Magazine

—01. Ryan Conder.
—02. Birds Nests by Stan Bitters.

Words

This is technically old news, seeing as how this particular issue of Brutus magazine came out in July of last year, but I discovered these scans today; courtesy of the ever-reliable Reference Library, and thought it worth a post. Thankfully both the internet and back issues exist, so there's still hope for those eager to track down a hard copy of issue 713: California's Best Businesses.

The Real McCoy's Deer Skin Vest

01

Images

—01. Deer Skin with Buck suede shoulder.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words


When the temperature drops there's nothing like a French duck down vest to keep that core warm. Exotic insulation just feels better. McCoys are capable of sourcing some incredible material and I can only imagine how nice that deer skin leather breaks in. I can't justify buying this piece, but I can appreciate how incredible it is.

Visvim Skagway Estlin

01

Images

—01. Canvas Upper.
—02. Leather Trim.

Words


It's those simple items that have the most wear-ability, easily interchangeable between any outfit in any season. The Skagway Estlin is that shoe for me. It's accessible and it's not overly detailed. I appreciate the classic model made well and Visvim produces a great version here.
