PONYTAIL CHEZ BACKYARD BILL.

PONYTAIL CHEZ BACKYARD BILL.

We had an absolute blast shooting around NYC and Paris with Bill Gentle (a.k.a Backyard Bill). You can check out our guides for both respective places but here are the funnest pictures that Bill kept for himself. Very Salty.
EVERY FLAVOUR AT MADE BY LEGACY

EVERY FLAVOUR AT MADE BY LEGACY

Made By Legacy, our favourite Bangkok flea event of the year, and a bit of a show for people and their rad styles. This year we set up a little portrait booth to show you just what we’re on about and to have a little bit of fun.
ON THE RADAR: SESSÙN’S OUTERWEAR THIS WINTER / VOGUE

ON THE RADAR: SESSÙN’S OUTERWEAR THIS WINTER / VOGUE

We’re delighted to see French label Sessùn coming forward with a super military-inspired outerwear collection. Think about heavy military coats in virgin wool, tailored to a super feminine shape to bring back elegance to the silhouette... And they didn’t miss a beat in bringing out the cable knit turtleneck back (respect).
PORTRAIT OF A LADY / CABOURN WOMENS AUTHENTIC

PORTRAIT OF A LADY / CABOURN WOMENS AUTHENTIC

We bring you all the winter inspiration you need fresh from London’s Army Gym by Nigel Cabourn. Think denim suits, army jackets, windbreakers, suede workboots, and you’re on the right track.
CABOURN X LYBRO DOES W’MENSWEAR.

CABOURN X LYBRO DOES W’MENSWEAR.

For Cabourn fans around the world, the new Cabourn x Lybro collaboration might have popped up on the radar this year. Lybro, an iconic British workwear label established in 1927, clothed factory workers of the wartime. So when Nigel Cabourn bought rights to Lybro, that iconic yet deceased piece of British workwear history, we got really excited about the prospects of breathing life back into this great giant.
FALL W’MENSWEAR AT THE BROOKLYN CIRCUS / PF FLYERS x BKc RAMBLER

FALL W’MENSWEAR AT THE BROOKLYN CIRCUS / PF FLYERS x BKc RAMBLER

What’s to come at The Brooklyn Circus this fall are some kicks that will put up a meaty fight to canvas shoe category, with that great BKc promise to rep the history books in all American style. It takes a really thoughtful person with skilful eye to edit something so well that people can understand what it’s about without too much thought. I take my hat off to whoever can.
WHAT REALLY GOES INTO OUR PICTURES [ PTJ BROKE THE INTERNET. ]

WHAT REALLY GOES INTO OUR PICTURES [ PTJ BROKE THE INTERNET. ]

This is a little exploration into the art of styling, and the delicate art of having your picture taken. There are so many elements to be considered and it can be an all overwhelming experience. The way we see style or coolness if you like, is something that can’t be put down in words. You can’t dissect it, nor can you force to try to capture its essence. So don’t bother trying to force it into a photograph. We take you in on what goes into a PTJ photoshoot with this series by Ryan Plett in NYC.
A DAY OF PONYTAILISMS / THE STYLE EDITORIAL.

A DAY OF PONYTAILISMS / THE STYLE EDITORIAL.

We’ve put together some classic looks that will get you from A to B, the gym to class, and off to work, all in the name of style. At Ponytail Journal, we believe this word can’t be taken too seriously, nor can the decision between a plain white oxford or one with a 3D print that requires red and blue glasses to experience fully. You’ll find our new and old friends like Atelier de l’Armee, Gitman Vintage, Merz B. Schwannen, Arpenteur, and lots of newness from Paris’ new sartorial club member, Victoire Barber Shop. Watch our day of style unfold.
THE MERCANTILE STORE DO W’MENSWEAR

THE MERCANTILE STORE DO W’MENSWEAR

We’ve just made new friends with The Mercantile, internet newness that speaks to a slightly more feminine flavour of w’menswear to the table. The store together hand selected vintage pieces from California alongside modern basics and interior accessories designed by the founders themselves, and we bring you favourites from their latest vintage drop.
HAVERSACK GOT THEIR SPRING SUMMER 16 TO A FINE TUNE

HAVERSACK GOT THEIR SPRING SUMMER 16 TO A FINE TUNE

It’s not often that you come across a collection where you would see yourself wearing every garment, but Haversack did just that for us this coming season. They nailed that fine balance between looking new while referencing the past, and especially in menswear where so much inspiration is drawn from vintage, it’s hard to maintain a unique and strong aesthetic without being compared to someone else.
MARKET CAMOUFLAGE / PTJ FOR L’OPTIMUM

MARKET CAMOUFLAGE / PTJ FOR L’OPTIMUM

If you didn’t get your hands on this month’s issue of L’Optimum, PTJ is bringing you compartmentalised, focused style reportage on each look I brought to the table. This instalment we thought colour was needed for complete urban camouflage at Bangkok’s vibrant flower market.
