Converse 3-Panel Chuck Taylor 1970 Ox

01

Image

—01. Canvas uppers.

Words

While not as understated as the numerous solid colour '70s Chucks out there, this red, white and blue version might be the right choice for those that appreciated the ‘stars and stripes’ model released earlier this year, but felt they couldn’t quite pull them off. Slightly more wearable than those, the tricolour design feels simple enough but is sure to attract a little more attention than standard editions.

A Book of Glyphs by Ed Sanders

01

Images

01. 160 pages.
02. ‘Gnarl Moth’ glyph.

Words

Ed Sanders is a legend of New York City’s 1960s LES art scene and after reading his biography and general recounting of the era, Fug You, I’ve become pretty obsessed with his work. Responsible for Fuck You: A Magazine of the Arts, the Peace Eye Bookstore and the folk-rock group The Fugs, as well as numerous books and poetry collections, Sanders seems to be a little closer to the respect he deserves. This book of 72 glyphs, created in 2008 and released this year, features a series of simple coloured pencil drawings imbued with a sense of humour and visual style that have been a trademark of Sanders' poetry and mimeograph printed zines since 1962.

Weekend Viewing: Zane Lowe meets.... Rick Rubin

Info

Facilities courtesy of Amos Clarke & Eric Lynn
Produced by Lee Edmenson

Words

Although it was published earlier this year, I only just got a chance to watch Zane Lowe's interview with Rick Rubin. As one of the music industry's most unsung heroes and influential contributors, he opens up about working with a variety of musicians, the different processes, his start with Def Jam and his admiration for the artists.

—01. Ribbed collar.

Words

As new collections continue to show up in retailers around the world, there are a handful of items that work just as well in the summer as they do crossing over into fall. This border tee from Comme des Garçons SHIRT is a simple, easy to wear piece that would look great with some shorts on the yacht or layered under some navy and black wool in the winter.

Backpacker: 1970s Issues Online

01

Images

01. Vol. 1, No. 3 – Autumn 1973.
02. Vol. 1, No. 4 – Winter 1973.

Words

On numerous occasions Google Books has been an indispensable resource for hard to find materials that I was dying to see. One such treasure was searching for and happening upon issues of Backpacker magazine from the 1970s. The first few years of this publication are worth a scroll through to see advertisements from now iconic companies like The North Face, Patagonia and Eddie Bauer in a fledgling hiking magazine. The vintage gear from these brands and many smaller mail-order companies is certainly the highlight and this collection of copies online is incredibly generous.

02. Black.

Words

I've been wearing black and navy trousers pretty consistently of late, and while I'm happy with the bottoms I've found, the grass is always greener. Neighbour have received their first fall delivery from Acne and the cotton Roc Twill trousers appear to be an ideal everyday option.

Wästberg Studioilse W084T2 Table Lamp

01

Image

—01. Dimmable and adjustable.

Words

The price tag is sure to frighten those with better sense than I, but I haven't been able to stop thinking about this lamp since I first saw it. Designed by Ilse Crawford’s Studioilse and produced by Swedish lighting company Wästberg, it takes just enough reference from early 20th century task lights so as not to render it unrecognizable, but also features a certain amount of playfulness, offering a choice of brown or red braided cables and mixing materials such as cast iron, beech and aluminium.
