GANT Rugger’s dropped a line of sunglasses at a pretty affordable price tag. We had a chance to preview them last week at the Project Show in Vegas and have to say they’re really well made and come in some vibrant finishes. The shells are hand-made acetate and come in custom color combinations and are fitted with polarized lenses. At $125 a pop, you just can’t go wrong. They’re available now at Barneys, Scoop NYC, GANT.com and GANT store.
The fine folks over at Hodinkee have really outdone themselves with this one. The Portuguese Sidérale Scafusia is one of the most complex timepieces IWC has ever made, and the ten years it took to develop this wondrous beauty proves just that. The Scafusia features solar time, the sidereal time (both can be set independently), power reserve and a very large tourbillon as seconds display. The rear side displays Customized celestial chart and horizon, sunrise and sunset display, sidereal time and solar time, day, night and dusk display under celestial chart, perpetual calendar with display showing leap years and number of day.
Warrior of Radness is known for delivering all the proper beach essentials but they’ve gone season appropriate for the fall with knits, long-sleeve tees, heavier button-downs, jackets, sweats and a few other goods. Don’t worry, there are still tanks and tees available in case you’re fortunate enough to still be soaking in the sun.
From Unionmade comes their latest collaboration with New England’s Alden. The McClaren Longwing wingtip shoe is offered up in a two-tone colorway of tan and brown and is built on a double oak sole for unparalleled comfort. The details are immense as the shoe features all-around reverse welt, hidden eyelets and round cordohyde laces.
Ben Sherman Modern Classics delivers some top-notch product for its third season. The Fall 2011 collection features high quality fabrics with detailed craftsmanship, giving us more staples for the modern wardrobe. The upcoming season’s offerings take much inspiration from, “the Great British outdoorsmen of the 1950s, with particular reference to the challengers of the World Water Speed Records; a prestigious title that was intermittently but vehemently battled and defended on Coniston Water by the slightly more eccentrically epicurean gentlemen of the 1900s.”
SLVR by adidas delivers this Belt Pocket for the Fall 2011 season. It’s a cotton canvas belt with metal eyelets and three removable pocket pouches with hidden magnetic closures.
Here we have a look at Hussein Chalayan x PUMA Urban Mobility collection for Fall 2011. The imagery gives us a look at the collection as a whole though our attention naturally gravitates to the footwear on display. The apparel features a darker color scheme with hints of color and graphics as well.
The collection is available through select PUMA Urban Mobility dealers. (via hypebeast)
At this week’s Project show, we had the opportunity to check out Triple Aught Design in person for the first time. The San Francisco-based high performance apparel and equipment company makes gear that’s built to withstand the most rugged use cases, from special operations forces to wilderness exploration and conservation to adventure travel. Some of the pieces take inspiration from pieces used by international armed forces for decades and deliver them in updated, more versatile fabrics but keep all of the fine details the original pieces featured.
We’re really excited to be able to present to you all some highlight pieces from Tovar, a brand that we came for the first time at this week’s PROJECT Show in Las Vegas. The Los Angeles-based label is launching in Spring 2012 and their product is really exceptional. There’s balanced mix of simplicity, functionality and wearability. The shirting fabrics are really soft and lightweight so they’re perfect for the warmer months while the outerwear pieces are so versatile in both form and color that they have no barrier when it comes to season.
Selectism turns us to this Denham’s Longshore Pea Coat, which the label’s made available in three different fabrics. Apart from the Japanese denim shell you see above, the Pea Coat’s available in black painted canvas and (Fox Brothers & Co) Melton wool as well. “The coat’s overall design draws influence from vintage naval outerwear, yet deviates from the box-fit of archetypal works attire, parading a number of modernist revisions and a streamlined silhouette.” There’s a fresh blend of American heritage and Japan’s desire for detail and functionality.
