01. Made in Japan.
02. Cotton and nylon blend.

Words

Sasquatchfabrix. have produced another amazing offering this season, one which includes this beautiful Wa-Neck shirt. While their clothes have never been overly tailored, this collection took things into the realm of certified bagginess, which is an aesthetic that looks great when paired with traditional elements like a kimono collar.

Undercover 03816 T-Shirt

01. 100% cotton.

Words

Undercover’s Television pieces for Spring-Summer '15 created quite a stir when the collection was first shown last year, causing plenty of people to raise all kinds of grievances. Most seemed to call-out the large graphic treatments and liberal use of photos from their two album covers. I myself am a huge fan of Tom Verlaine and his fellow band members and feel they are far and away the strongest group associated with the late '70s NYC punk venue CBGB. For me, this T-shirt, while very pricey, uses all the right Marquee Moon references, making it just about the best one you can find for a band with an absolutely sterling output.

—01. White Birkenstock EVA sole.

Words

A pair of sturdy sandals are a necessity during the summer, whether they’re Birkenstock, Teva, or this Horween leather option by Waltzing Matilda. Produced in Maine using hand-tacked copper nails in their construction, they are sure to be one of the most well made, not to mention attractive, versions of this usually less than desirable style.

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

The use of various striped shirting fabrics is nothing new for Comme des Garçons. However, using these fabrics to piece together this snap button coaches jacket offers a fresh take. The Ganryu collection features a playful aesthetic overall, falling somewhere between Junya Watanabe's namesake label and Homme's more classic styling.
