Weekender || New York Part II

leave a comment »

I’m going back.  I’ve been to NY many times before and each time I seem to enjoy myself more and more.  I was as cold as I think I have ever been, save for traveling in Prague and Berlin a year ago.  Had a little fun with layering up in the morning and definitely slapped a dent in my wallet.  I don’t really have the energy to recant everything that happened so I hope these pictures will do.

Weekender || New York

leave a comment »

Haven’t updated in a long time probably one of the busiest autumns I’ve remembered as of late.  I’ll be bumming around New York City till Thursday, and as all my weekenders and trips, I’ll be snapping photos here and there.  A bunch of fun updates coming up here and there with other things going on.  Stay tuned…

Week 38 Roundup || Black Guys Know How to Layer

leave a comment »

Fall Layers are dope.  Especially if you can dress it up like this guy.

The Black Ivy series that the Street Etiquette boys are putting together is straight up phenomenal.  Really great collection of effortlessly cool dudes.

Chalkboard Headboards, or anything chalkboard related seems like a great idea for a cheap blast of creativity in your room.

Linus Canvas Panniers are always on my radar, but now I just might have to jump on it.  Linus with a great set of panniers that are simply classic.

In My Pocket || Field Notes

leave a comment »

I believe there are things that are necessities in every man’s pocket.  Without any of them, a man’s efficiency and performance in all things man are significantly compromised.  One of these necessities is a quality notebook.

Moleskine has created a cult trend lately with a smart marketing campaign and  very simple yet effective notebooks.  Yet a problem I have with Moleskines is it’s mobility in my pocket.  A softcover notebook still contains hundreds of pages that are most likely blank, and if they’re mostly filled, most of the pages you won’t look back on.  Solution?  Another company that’s creating a cult following: Field Notes.

Seen on the left is the classic Field Notes that comes in a 3-pack for $9.95 and on the right, California 3-Pack for $9.95.  They function as a template for my thoughts, quotes I find inspiring, moments that move me, a place to doodle my grocery list, a folder to hold my receipts, an outlet when I’m bored in class, I can go on and on.

It looks simple, is Made in the U.S.A. with care, and it fits in my pocket.

Week 35 Roundup || Glorified Rats

leave a comment »

Skount + Laguna + Kera with their new Rat in Spain.  Unurth is a fantastic street art blog.

Autumn 2010 Kit with in depth explanations of why each item is fantastic are always fantastic.  Free / man does a good job curating this list with Lineage of Influence.

Gant Rugger F/W 2010 from Sartorially Inclined is a great look into a pretty solid brand that plays it safe yet keeps it fresh.  At least worthy of some ideas for the cold in the coming months.

DIY or BUY from someone who did.  That’s the idea behind thegetupandgetdown, made from the fella behind A Time to Get, one of my favorite blogs on the web.
