The legendary red oxford shirt by Gitman Bros. for h(y)r collective is back in stock. It was a long time coming but after an untimely factory vacation and short supply of our custom red oxford cloth, we’ve finally had a few more shirts delivered. We’ve received numerous emails over the last few months regarding the shirts but we thought it was only fair to release them on a first come, first served basis. The 2 ply oxford cloth, locker loops, box pleats and sturdy made in the USA shirting is what we always expect from Gitman. With ours you also get side gussets and the custom red stitch and labels alongside the perfect shade of light red. The nice weight works all year round and will surely last you for many seasons to come. This will be the last batch of red Gitman for h(y)r collective shirts, so don’t hesitate as numbers are scarce. Available at The Shop, $150

I saw this post over on allplaidout and I love it. The two bloggers met up recently and a third party exclaimed to James of Secret Forts, "You look like your blog." Of course he does right? With the million and a half product blogs out there, how many bloggers actually practice what they preach and pine after the products they post, or actually wear the outfits they post? My guess is not very many. So I feel that's why there has been a tight circle of blogs recognized in this little niche market. The sense of honesty and actually living your blog in the real world is important. I personally wear the items I write about (unfortunately a small portion) but still, the ones I really can afford or want. I know Michael over at ACL and Jake also are in the same boat, and there are others. It's the reality of our tastes that help us connect with each other, as well as the readers. It's always been something that urks me about some other sites I suppose, but I've never really touched on it. So there it is, practice what you preach. Thanks to the other bloggers out there for making the Internet more interesting. *In Addition: I do realize a lot of blogs have to get traffic and actually rely on making money for their job. So personal accounts and thoughts might not have a place. There is a balance, and it can be tough.
Yes, we're a little bit behind the ball on catching up with the social networking media outlets of our time. But we're on top of it now, and would like to invite all readers who aren't sick of us between the Dailys and monthly issues to join our Facebook fan page. You can even follow us on Twitter now too. Our facebook page actually has images from all of our 10 issues, as well as a RSS feed from the blog and all the other incredibly uselessful Facebook features. We're actually going to be keeping it up regularly and maybe even previewing some exclusive pieces on there. Twitter has actually been semi fun to check out in the last week as well, it's nice not having to think too much and still get a post online. We are also streaming the RSS feed through our Twitter page, but we plan on keeping up what's happening in the studio and in the field too. Thanks for the support. h(y)r collective Facebook Page h(y)r collective Twitter
I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but I figured I would try it out. I am currently working on a new layout/design and potential development for the blog which may require a new column. Things need to be tightened up around here so I thought I would ask you, the readers, what you thought. Are there certain aspects you hate about some blogs? Are there particular features you love? Since the blog is really for your use, I would hope you would find it aesthetically pleasing, functional and better than the rest on the Internet. Is that too much to demand? Maybe with so maybe subjective views it might be hard to please everyone. But I'm open ears for your thoughts now before I get too deep into it. Thanks in advance.
WANT Les Essentials is probably the nicest accessory brand coming out of Canada these days. With very useful pieces geared towards the Macintosh using global citizen, their leather iPhone, Mac Book and iPod holders were great items last fall. Back in our issue 6 interview with Dexter and Byron, they hinted about their new organic cotton collection - which have now arrived at Nomad. The prices are definitely not something to overlook for most of us, but you also have to realize what you're getting and the long term investment in something that will look even better with time, be convenient and keep your goods safe. I would definitely like to get my hands on the passport wallet myself, even though it's not from the organic selection.
I would have loved to have a brand new fresh issue up and ready for you today but as usual, we are running a couple days behind. Traveling hasn't really helped the process either a whole lot. I am hoping it will be up for Monday so everyone who is back in their office can at least kill some time with some decent reading and pretty pictures. I am pretty excited about Issue 9. I think it's a solid offering and I hope you agree when it drops. The next few should be packed with some great designers and people, not that the previous 8 haven't been, but I'm happy that things are continuing to build and progress. Anyways, it's coming, hopefully you can hold on. Go shopping or something, take advantage of these sales, I plan on it.
