Converse was kind enough to send me a pair of their latest collaboration with Missoni featuring the Auckland Racer. Missoni’s iconic multi-stitch fabric woven with a Mazarine Blue multi-color gets paired with the Auckland Racer silhouette that hails from the early 70’s with strong success. Each shoe features the Missoni designed wool/viscose upper with a subtle lamé yarn woven into the fabric, premium canvas lining and white rubber soles.
They look so damn good I hate to actually wear them but every single time I’ve put them on complements follow. Even my wife, who hates any sort of sneaker for all activity other than the gym, speaks kindly of them. Take a look at the photos below to make your own judgment. If you want a pair of your own I hate to say they’re sold out most places due to the limited release but you can hit up eBay and I think there still might be a few pairs left at End.
Nobody does denim better than Karl from Rogue Territory and when you couple that with an exclusive collection of washed out wear for summer with none other than Need Supply you’ve got full blown
denim delirium, menswear madness, work shirt wildness, field jacket frenzy, well, you get the idea.
The “Wash Me Over” collection features hand-distressed, enzyme-bathed field wear for life. Each item is named after a character from Apocalypse Now. The hang tag includes a quote from Lt. Col. Kilgore: “You can either surf, or you can fight.”
Take a look at the images below then get your ass over to Need Supply to scout the collection for yourself.
Summertime is time for colorful ass trousers. Your boy Sid’s got what you need, so hit him up to grab those popsicle pants (i.e. cool and colorful). *Editors note: Never, ever call them popsicle pants.
All on Sid Mashburn.
We all know Tellason makes high quality jeans but these capable selvedge chore-coats are making me wish it were winter. Well, maybe autumn. I suppose I could just get one now and turn the A.C. down really low.
From Woodlands, “The chore-coat is a quintessential necessity for any man looking for a dependable, and rugged workaday garment. It’s an American classic, built to be the work-horse of your closet. The Coverall jacket is an updated classic from the upstanding gentlemen at Tellason. We think it’s one of the very finest chore-styled coats on the market today. Various pockets of all shapes and sizes, selvedge ID detailing all throughout, and 100% made in the USA of 12.5 oz cone mills white oak selvedge denim.”

I know, I know, a post on Persol isn’t the most cutting edge on the sunglasses spectrum. But what good would it be to tip you off to some other eyewear when these babies exist? Why do anything but remind you of the best available?
Certainly choosing a pair of sunglasses is about about face frame fit (your face + right frame = good fit) but I hear kind words from the crowd about my pair damn near every time I wear them. I’m sure I’ll recommend other optical options in the near future, as it never hurts to have eyewear alternatives, but don’t say I never told you about Persol.
Give them a look at Need Supply.
