This past weekend, New York’s 5th annual Pop up Flea played host to the second leg of LVC’s “The Biker with Oil and Leather & The Bikeriders” exhibition. LVC’s Fall 2012 collection pays homage to the rebellious spirit and renegade style of the American biker – white t-shirt, black leather jacket and the classic 501®. To take things next level, the brand teamed up with 13 artists and illustrators from around the globe to customize black leather motorcycle jackets with the use of oil paints, with 21 jackets designed in total. The results are tremendous with designs that cover even the most minute detail.
The Pop Up Flea back for their 5th year, this time bringing together a group of menswear brands that’s as good as ever. From our experience, the Pop Up Flea has allowed folks to meet the people behind their favorite brands at a more personal level while getting access to exclusive product and a ton of stuff you just won’t see anywhere else. A Continuous Lean’s Michael Williams and Randy Goldberg of Urban Daddy fame are the duo behind the juncture so the planning and organization happening behind the curtain is nothing short of flawless.
Brands on deck include Hodinkee, Oak Street Bootmakers, Gitman Brothers, C.H.C.M., Terrapin Stationers, Unionmade, Schott NYC, Danner and many many more. Pop Up Flea 5 takes place this weekend on November 30th, December 1st & 2nd, 2012. Location: 443 West 18th Street (btw 9th & 10th Ave.), New York, NY.
We’re a day away from the launch of this year’s Pop-Up Flea here in NYC and some pretty major news just came through the wire. Online watch publication Hodinkee is launching their first Pop-Up Store at the event. So what’s up for grabs, you ask? The type of stuff you expect to be reading about on Hodinkee. Ben Clymer & Co. have done an amazing job lining up the offerings. We’re talking vintage watches, old clocks, pocket watches, vintage watch advertisements and posters, and other old-timey watch miscellanea. They’ll even have a bunch of NATO straps in different colors, along with some Horween leather and suede NATOs and straps.
We have just a ton of great stuff, ranging from just $350 up to a few thousand. We will be accepting all major credit cards and we promise you, this will be the best vintage watch buying opportunity in New York city in all of 2011. We’ll have a good range of Rolex (more affordable than you think) Omega (including some seriously awesome Speedmasters), Heuer, Universal Geneve, LeCoultre, Longines, Hamilton, Breitling, etc.
The Pop-Up Flea kicks off tomorrow at 3PM and will run Saturday and Sunday as well. You’ve got three days to get your hands on some really exceptional product. For a more detailed look at some of the offerings, head on over to Hodinkee.
The Pop Up Flea is entering its fourth edition next month and is now one of the most highly anticipated events of the year, IMHO. Michael Williams of ACL and Randy Goldberg of Urban Daddy get some of the best men’s brands under the same roof, product on hand and ready to buy. It just ends up being great time as you’re able to talk to folks on a more personal level and really get a feel for the product you’re checking out. It’s running from December 2nd to the 4th at a new location this time — 159 Bleecker Street. More info over at A Continuous Lean.
Open now in SoHo is The Pop Up Flea‘s third coming and this time, it’s bigger than ever. The list of brands on hand this year is tremendous with some of our favorite labels showing up for this once-a-year showing. Atop the list of notables is Michael Williams‘ own ACL & Co., which teamed up with San Francisco-based Tellason for a special pair of denims that debuted last night at the opening of The Pop Up Flea. Mark McNairy also showed up with some of his finest shoes, including his collaborations with Engineered Garments and Bass Weejuns. For the first time ever, L.L.Bean’s Signature collection was shown outside the label’s Freeport, Maine shop.
We could honestly go on and on about all the happenings at The Pop Up Flea but you’ll have to just go in there and experience it for yourself before it shuts down on Sunday. Saturday the 20th, it’s open from 11am to 7pm and Sunday the 21st, it’s open from 11am to 6pm.
