London Undercover has made this umbrella which pays homage to the classic vintage Green Line coaches that linked central London with country towns within a 30-mile radius. The umbrella is really special as it features vintage Lincoln Green exterior with hints of gold and a 1960′s Routemaster seat fabric pattern interior. The maple wood shaft & handle are fitting as well.
We initially reported on Thom Browne’s first ever eyewear collection which is set to release for the Fall 2011 season a while back and it seems a few select shops have already taken stock of the goods. The shots here were taken at Hong Kong’s Dita boutique and give us detailed looks with highlights of a few key pieces. We knew this collection would be phenomenal and from what we’re seeing, Thom Browne did not disappoint.
The collection will feature 20 unique styles that draw inspiration from the professors, artists, politicians and architects of the 1940s to 1960s and will be made from acetate, with specifically developed color combinations that will be complimented by genuine leather and metal mesh side cups as well marked with Browne’s signature red, white and blue logo stripe.
The goods can be had now at Dita in Hong Kong and other select retailers worldwide. More looks from the collection below.
California-based outerwear company JanSport has announced their latest collection which looks to pay homage to co-founder and original designer, Skip Yowell.

Look for this limited edition collection to drop in select JanSport retailers this season. (via hb)

Who would’ve thought an ad campaign by a sock company could be so edgy? Well, that’s what happens when you expand the budget and get famed photographer Terry Richardson to get behind the lens for the shoot. Happy Socks did jus that for their Holiday 2011 campaign and we think it’s turned out great for them. The product is displayed in an abstract way and features some notable folks including ASAP Rocky, Sky Ferreira, Mykki Blanco, Maluca Mala, Physical Therapy, Braydon Szafranski, Ashley Smit, and Action Bronson.
Not sure if anyone noticed but it was pretty cold this morning (and still is). I got up and went scarf hunting like there’s no tomorrow. One of my favorite scarves in my current arsenal is a wool blend beauty from Original Penguin’s Fall 2011 collection. The only sensible thing to do was jump on their site and see what they have going for Fall 2011 and well, I would not disappointed. This cotton blend scarf caught my eye. It features a Jacquard Penguin print and looks to be the perfect pickup. The navy and white throughout really make it a bit more versatile and the print is phenomenal. Impulse buy anyone?

Japanese label The SoloIst and Los Angeles-based Oliver Peoples have teamed up once again for a small collection of eyewear. In total, three different styles will be available, with each dropping in two gradient colorways — black and light brown. As you’ll see from the shots above (and below), there’s a more classical style that’s been crafted and one that’s a bit more modern as well to appeal to a wider range of folks out there. The frames are set to drop in early Spring 2012 to the Japan/Asian market, though you can expect a small quantity to hit Oliver Peoples Boutiques as well.
Lexdray has launched a video series to compliment their current Classified Collection. Each day, Lexdray will be showcasing a piece from the Classified Collection via 3D video, which have been crafted in coordination with LA production company, Wendel. Viewers get a 3D look at each bag so they can see all the intricate details from the military grade hardware to the weather resistant fabric.
We’ve covered the goods in the past, heck we even were even fortunate enough to take Lexdray on a trip with us a few months back. They blend Japanese craftsmanship and modern functionality and deliver them in all black shells. Each bag is individually numbered, and our personal favorite is the Tokyo Pack, the video of which can be seen below alongside another for the Boulder Pack. Be sure to follow the video drops on Lexdray’s blog to check out detailed looks at the Tahoe Duffel and Manhattan Messenger.
