Nica Chromexcel Sandal

01

Image

—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 Nica. 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.

Leslie Williamson: Handcrafted Modern & Modern Originals

—01. Modern Originals.
—02. Handcrafted Modern.

Words

Having trained as a portraitist at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, the primary focus of Leslie Williamson's more recent work has been the world of interiors. Eschewing the glossy format often associated with this subject, she captures people's homes and the work of iconic designers and architects in a far more artistic way. Her first book published by Rizzoli, Handcrafted Modern, has done exceptionally well, and her second from the same publisher, Modern Originals, was released in April of this year.

—01-03. Prada Spring-Summer '15 by Alfredo Piola.

Words

As the world tour of men's fashion weeks continues, there are few resources better than Style.com and T Magazine for quality updates on the latest collections and behind the scenes imagery. I especially like this series from T Magazine which uses beautiful photography to capture a more intimate look at the clothes and the people wearing them.

Bru Na Boinne Aloha Shirt

01

Image

—01. 55% Rayon, 45% Cotton.

Words

It might not be in the same realm as a hand-painted vintage original, but this Aloha shirt by Japanese brand Bru Na Boinne is the best contemporary version I've seen in a long time. The lightweight fabric, the subtle combination of greys and pinks, and the simplicity of the asymmetrical flamingo pattern – with what looks like a stingray and a diver thrown in for good measure – add up to something very special. I was sold as soon as I laid eyes on it.

—01. 175 x 85mm.

Words

For those that carry their wallet in another bag, a jacket pocket, or maybe like to have something a little larger for travel, this leather version by Porter is a great option. It's subtle, beautifully made and provides plenty of storage opportunities.

Weekend Viewing: Last Days

—01. Michael Pitt as Blake.

Words

Sometimes you see a film at just the right time and it strikes an emotional chord. I'd been putting off watching Last Days, Gus Van Sant's 2005 semi-biographical account of Kurt Cobain's demise, but I was ready for it last Sunday. Michael Pitt stars as Blake, an often incomprehensible musician disenchanted with life, especially other people. Beautifully shot by longtime Van Sant collaborator, Harris Savides, the film follows Pitt around a sprawling Pacific Northwest estate, escaping conversations with friends and family. Restrained but gripping from start to finish, the most special moments are when he's alone and allows himself to open up through his music: the only way he knows how.

Tretorn Nylite Canvas Sneakers

01

Image

—01. 100% post industrial sock liner.

Words

I’ve always been a fan of the unique design and simple nature of the Tretorn Nylite sneaker. The silhouette is unlike most others and the gullwing branding, especially in this case, is distinctive yet subtle. Suited to a variety of uses from deck shoe to daily wear, they would be a great alternative to the more common white sneakers that are readily available.
