Neighborhood Mash Jacket

01. Embroidered throughout.

Words

While not one of Neighborhood's most subtle pieces, the detailed embroidery on the Mash Jacket is incredible. It would be easy to get something like this wrong, but the Japanese brand have successfully updated a beautiful reference, creating something rich in design and balanced in aesthetic and feeling.

Noah Davis and The Underground Museum at FUG

Info

FUG
431 E 6th Street, Basement
New York, NY 10009
April 4 – 25, 2015

Words

I've never claimed to understand exactly what the infamous Bruce High Quality Foundation is; over the years I've just assumed it's a bunch of Fluxus lovers aiming to confuse. It turns out that it's actually a school of sorts, and more recently a gallery named FUG, which is the setting for this, its first show. And they couldn't have picked a more wonderful artist to launch the space with, as Noah Davis is sure to amaze with his twisted vignettes of decades past. It's also the current home of a few pieces from The Underground Museum, a non-profit he runs.

Name. Finx Oxford Checkered Flag Shirt

01

Images

01. Giza 45 Egyptian cotton.
02. Made in Japan.

Words

I'm a sucker for anything with a check pattern, possibly because of The Specials poster that was in my mom's bathroom when I was a kid. Even without the back detail, this would still be a beautiful garment, as Name. makes some of the best quality shirting to come out of Japan.

Image

—01. Battle Dress Uniform.

Words

This Engineered Garments BDU Shirt is pretty much a perfect piece. Made from high count twill, the classic military style functions as a great lightweight jacket, not overdone on the details, but modernized just enough from the original reference.
