Leroy Grannis - Legendary Surf Photographer

01

Info

—01. Photographs by ©LeRoy Grannis. All rights reserved.

Words

Leroy has provided us with some of the nicest surf photography dating back to the early 1960s. Odds are if you've seen any shots of the Southern Californian or Hawaiian surf culture in the 1960s and 1970s, he probably captured it. From black and white to an explosion of Technicolor, he really helped frame a generation of surfers. As Leroy passed away earlier this year, it's important to remember his contribution to that era of surfing. Before the shortboard, endorsements and telephoto lenses, when the sport was really at one of its most pure stages of evolution, his iconic photos help depict an era with absolute beauty. His photos will live forever along with the essence behind every shot, the love of the sport.

—01. Light weight summer pants.

"A pinstripe cotton work pant with cinch back by Junya Watanbe Man. Due to the looser cut legs, these pants will be most comfortable in warm climates. The best look - with rolled up legs."

Gitman Vintage Corduroy Polka Dots

—01. Gitman Vintage BD shirt.
—02. 100% Japanese Cotton Corduroy.
—03. Made in USA.

Words

While it does seem a bit crazy, I believe this shirt is from Gitman Vintage's FW11 collection, and yes, it is already available. The brand has started working with more and more interesting fabrics imported from Japan. This blue on blue polka dot corduroy is a really nice combination and I think it offers a great variety of texture and subtle color.

Post Overalls BDU Jacket

—01. Tan cotton twill.

Words

One of Post Overalls less popular pieces of outerwear is their BDU jacket. With a little bit more of a military feel, the jacket has simple pocketing, nice subtle details and a great casual fit. The SS12 BDU jackets were definitely some of our favorites, but Steven Alan was the only shop that I've spotted this spring's version.

Arc'teryx for Beams

—01. CIERZO18.
—02. Compact size, playful colors.

Words

Included in a slough of Beams collaborations is this great, playful backpack made by Arc'teryx. The 35th anniversary products have produced some outstanding items for the Japanese retail giant, but this multi-color and fabric bag is really appealing. The size is ideal for bike rides to work or short hikes on the weekend. While not the most subtle bag on the market, I've always liked the use of color in more technical items, be it bags or outerwear.

On Sale: Woolen Mills Upland Jacket

—01. Tan Burburry fabric.

Words

I probably shouldn't be pointing people to another web shop's online sale, as a retailer, but as a consumer I thought it was worth noting that this great jacket from Woolrich Woolen Mills is now on sale at Oi Polloi. It's still available in good sizes, and might be your last chance to pick up one of Daiki's best Woolen Mills pieces before they're gone forever.

Olive Clarks Desert Boots

—01. Olive suede.

Words

There isn't a whole lot of new developments with Clarks Desert boots, and that is just fine. I haven't seen these classic all-season shoes in this olive green before, and they look like a very nice alternative to the sand, wolf and cola, all of which are great. The olive is just another to add to the list.
