Deluxe has delivered their take on the classic motorcycle riders jacket for the F/W 2013 season, giving us a heavy cow hide leather shell that’s been meticulously dyed and washed. The end result is a jacket that looks perfectly broken in. Other contemporary details include ergonomic pocket positioning, and a bold leopard printed lining, with traditional elements in the mix as well such as zippered cuffs, adjustable side cinches and iconic moto lapels.
Hodinkee continues to drop some really impressive product and this time, they’ve wrapped up a collaboration with GJ Cleverly, one of the last old school shoemakers known the World over. The duo teamed up for a very limited run of leather straps made from Russia Leather, a specially tanned reindeer leather recovered from a shipwreck dating to 1786. A short history lesson — Russia was renowned for their leathers back in the eighteenth century and one closely-guarded tanning process resulted in a water resistant leather with a rich reddish brown color, a cross-hatch patter, and a very unique smell. Then came the Russian Revolution and after 1917, production was stopped and the tanning process was lost to history.

HODINKEE has teamed up with motoring lifestyle brand Autodromo to deliver their latest work, the Stelvio sunglasses. Completely handmade in Japan, they’re named after the famous alpine pass – one of the finest driving roads in Italy – with each pair requiring over 130 operations to build and a month to complete. They are laser etched with a serial number, and made of the highest quality amber acetate in the world, with polarized cognac lenses. Each pair comes with a quilted leather carrying case inspired by some of our favorite vintage Ferraris. Numbers are limited here as only fifty pairs will be made.
The weather’s shifting and as we head into the cooler months ahead, it’s only right you have the right coat to help you survive. A shearling collared coat like this one from Shipley & Halmos’ Farrand jacket is perfect for anything the winter throws at you. The collar’s removable which adds much versatility to the piece but the detailing is timeless and elegant. It’s double breasted with oversized buttons, features a ton of pockets with leather detailing and is built to last.
Suitsupply has opened doors to its second New York City location, this time staking claim in Manhattan’s Madison Avenue shopping district. The detail of the shop was unveiled at last night’s opening party and it’s everything we’ve come to expect from the European brand. Similar to their Broome Street location, the new space at 59th and Madison is perched on the second floor though the view from these glass walls is more inspiring than that of the iconic Soho shop.
In trademark Suitsupply fashion, the new space features a tailoring kiosk front and center, ready to perform alterations on the spot, as well as an expanded made-to-measure program and the full Suitsupply collection, which includes tailoring, knitwear, shoes, and accessories, plus a new, exclusive collaboration with GQ Best New American Designer Baldwin Denim, all unified by Suitsupply interior designer Floor Enneking’s bold use of graphics and color, and innovative, inviting product displays.
