We love the direction that style is going in, trends are soon a thing of the past, and we are inspired by the past and present in moving forward. Margaret Howell’s Autumn Winter look book this year is so much of that timeless goodness that speaks to greatness through history, with her romantic poetry that’s woven through every scene. Alasdair McLellan has yet again communicated her exquisite fictional world that we can’t help but think about stories of audacity during war time. Watch the film unfold, the narrative is yours to finish.
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.
Matthew Dolan made a new food-group everyone. He shredded his classic American sandwich up into strips, wove it into a rainbow cake and when you bite into it, you burp unicorns while farting sparkles. The sum of its parts made a whole new thing. It’s workwear for women at its highest evolution.
The Plotnicki’s behind Merz B. Schwanen are romantics. They have given second life to Industrial revolution era German circular knitting machines to make their knitwear that in turn, is refreshing the ephemeral nature of the garment industry with things that represent long-lasting style.
Yeah, Instagram sucks when you’re stuck at work while everyone in the world seems to be on the Amalfi coast right now. That’s why we prepared some important packing notes on the hot and steamy travel destination, because it’s time you booked that long weekend already.
For Cheeze Magazine’s 11th Anniversary Issue, ’Get Real’, we shot some W’Menswear looks to celebrate great people in the world who embrace newness, respect the past, and are constantly pushing to better what already exists. Grab a copy now, and for those who can’t here’s a little glimpse of funnest-styling-possible in the studio for the issue
We’ve been cooking up a ’lil something in the Denim Cave with Ben Viapiana to bring you lasses some great workwear.

A little inspiration for your summer threads, the Jinbei. Think cotton, hemp, sugar cane, or linen, soft washed and cut into a loose wrap around. It’s engineered for the heat, Japanese style.
Last week we visited the Mountain Research studio with our pal Nigel to have a look at their great pieces for the ultimate adventure. Then I made an explosion diagram.
From red shearling to twisted peacoats, we premiere the Kapital fall/winter 2015 runway show that happened in Hiroshima. Shot by ponytail pal Eric Kvatek.
