Words

Blue Button Shop has just received this outstanding version of the CT300 by New Balance. The black suede upper, tonal ’N’ logo, and contrasting sole unit make for an understated treatment on an appealing retro tennis shoe, that's seen a quiet renaissance in recent years next to their always popular running styles.

Maison Margiela Patchwork Knit Sweater

Image

01. Asymmetric hem.

Words

Fall-Winter collections might be arriving in stores, but I have a hard time considering coats and knitwear during the height of summer. If you're able to overlook such things, this thick cotton sweater from Maison Margiela features a mixed patchwork pattern that is unique yet easy to pull off. You just might not want to pull it on for another couple of months.

Words

Although he's issued two RRL titles and one about Marilyn Monroe, most of the publications that Tom Adler produces focus on iconic imagery from the annals of surf and climbing culture. To coincide with the recent release of An Uncommon Archive, a new volume from T. Adler Books that "draws from the seemingly disparate worlds of surfing, fashion and style, fishing, music, fine art, rock climbing, travel and adventure," T Magazine caught up with Tom at his Padaro Lane home near Carpinteria, California.

Brion Gysin: Unseen Collaborator

Info

October Gallery
24 Gloucester Street
Bloomsbury
London WC1N 3AL
July 2 – October 3, 2015

Words

I was aware of the role Brion Gysin played in creating the incredible Dreamachine light sculpture, but until reading William Burroughs’ latest biography, Call Me Burroughs, I didn't know how innovative an artist and thinker he really was. Having introduced Burroughs to the cut-up technique, it’s hard to say where one of the most famous beat writer’s careers may have gone without him. "Neo-calligrapher, master of line, multimedia revolutionary and cultural historian, Gysin’s experiences in New York, Tangier, Paris and London influenced his seminal artistic productions." Judging by the imagery online, this seems like an outstanding exhibition, and a welcome return for an artist who had his first solo show in the UK at the very same gallery.

Online Feature: Arc'teryx Veilance SS15

01. Photography by JIMA.

Words

Many people associate technical fabrics with specific forms of exercise or poor weather conditions, but functional clothing is equally relevant to the requirements of daily life as temperatures rise, particularly in a city environment. When it comes to the latter and the countless considerations involved, few brands succeed in the way that Arc'teryx Veilance does. This season's collection, captured on the streets of New York for our latest online feature, combines innovation and wearability with a well-balanced colour palette.

Star of Hollywood "Unholy Boomerang" Shirt

01

Image

01. Urea buttons.

Words

Every summer I find myself lusting after one of Star of Hollywood's incredible short-sleeved shirts. An eBay search turns up next nothing vintage-wise, so the licensed reproductions by Toyo Enterprises offer an appealing alternative. Click on the brand's name in the tag section below to see the mind-blowing version from last year that I still regret not getting. Fortunately, this one is equally outstanding. Made in Japan from a slubby cotton fabric, it features a perfectly boxy 1950s cut alongside a tasteful graphic treatment referred to as "Unholy Boomerang," which wasn't originally available with a black background.
