Nepenthes New York NBA Legends T-Shirts

Words

These Nepenthes New York pocket T-shirts are an absolute stroke of genius in my book, and I’m sure that fans of '80s and '90s NBA basketball will agree. The designs feature the full names of four of the sport's legends, mixed with non-basketball themed graphics. My pick of the bunch is the John Stockton option, with its striking piano bar treatment.

In addition to a handful of jackets, End have just recieved a nice selection of shirting from the New York-based, Nepenthes affiliated label, Rough & Tumble. The short-sleeved, cut and sew button-ups come in a variety of options, and feature a blue and white palette alongside stripes, polkadots and gingham. Unique yet wearable, the cotton shirts have mother of pearl buttons, a curved hem taped at the rear, and are all made in the US.

Simple, effective; well-cast and styled in an interesting yet wearable way. What more could you ask for, from an online editorial? Don't Hold Me Close is the latest visual offering from Nepenthes, featuring items from the Engineered Garments, FWK and Workaday Spring-Summer '15 collections. Worth a click. Worth a look. I quite like those runners too.

Needles Papillon Glasses – Samuel Sunglasses

–01. Four colour options.

Words

Whether it's shoes, socks, hats, clothing, remade clothing or eyewear, Needles seem capable of producing just about anything at a high level. The Samuel model from the brand's Papillon glasses collection comes in four options and features flip up lenses. I don't think it was the designer's main point of reference, but I was instantly reminded of Ozzie Smith.

The Needles Spring-Summer ’15 lookbook was recently released on the Nepenthes site, and features Keizo Shimizu’s customary reworkings of vintage, military and sportswear classics with his unique sensibility. There is also a sneak peek at a number of completely new styles from the Rebuild by Needles sub-line; the most outstanding of which are the hunting shirts that utilize a vast array of woodland, duck hunter and desert camouflage, just to name a few.
