The Standard Relay: Corter’s Bottle Hooks, Nau Wool Organizer, Taylor Stitch Summer Denim, & more.

Posted on May 29, 2012

Shutter Island Not the film you’re thinking of This is pretty. And excellently edited. Enjoy [via Gear Patrol]: Kaihara 8oz. Selvedge Summer-Weight Japanese Denim Taylor Stitch has put out an 8oz. selvedge denim for summery-purposes. The line on these guys reminds me of some of the deadstock selvedge rolls my grandfather has lying around from his old fabric business: extremely bold detailing. It appears they’re sold out of every size of the very reasonably priced pant but hopefully we’ll see a re-stock soon. Nau Wool Organizer Die Cut for design precision From first glance, this thing looks rather unimpressive. That is until it’s unfolded and all of the storage pockets are revealed. This thing can handle all of your small electronics and folds up…

The Standard Relay: Outlier x The Hill-Side, Bottled Cocktails, Field Notes’ Beginnings, & more.

Posted on April 25, 2012

Outlier x The Hill-Side Spring Vest Two of our favorites Outlier, one of our consistent favorites, has launched a collaboration with The Hill-Side bringing forth a very nice springtime vest, just warm enough to get you comfortably through the chillier days and nights but just sharp enough aesthetically that you probably won’t want to take it off. Speaking of both of these brands, Hickoree’s has just put up a few other items from Outlier in their web shop. Certainly something to check out. (Photo: Hickoree’s) Kevin Diedrich’s Bottled Cocktails Old article, great news These things are ingenious. I’ve had those crappy canned/bottled cocktails from the corner liquor store and if you haven’t, you know you’ve been curious what they’re like. Well let me go…

The Standard Relay: Handsome Coffee x WoodSmithe, Hiut Denim, Levi’s Commuter Collection, & Tsutaya Books

  Handsome Coffee Roasters x WoodSmithe A Gorgeous Video on a New Shop This has been out for a little bit but the video is absolutely gorgeous. Makes me proud to have such a strong tie to the coffee industry when videos of this caliber are released. Obviously it’s purely masturbatory to the aesthetics of caffeine meccas, specifically Handsome Coffee recently opened in Los Angeles, but it’s a feast for your eyes and really makes you want to grab a beer with the mustached gentleman. Hiut Denim Resurrecting a Denim Town FREE/MAN Brand did a very nice interview with David Hieatt, owner of Hiut Denim from the UK. It’s got some heft to it so certainly take your time reading it. Very interesting insight to the…

The Standard Relay: Hammarhead Duomatic, Blue Highway Denim, General Quarters, Tenue De Nimes Big John, Disneyland 1957, and more.

Posted on February 13, 2012

Hammarhead Industries Duomatic Rad Bikes from Philly Hammarhead Industries is a custom motorcycle outfit based out of Philly. I’ve talked about them before, a few of my friends work for the company, and they churn out bikes that are nothing short of impressive. Speaking of bikes as in bicycles, Hammarhead has now put out their first one called the Duomatic. Below is a photo of my good friend Maxine riding the sucker into oblivion. My understanding is that they’re very much sold out but maybe you can get in touch and still try and snag one (via Cycle EXIF). Tenue de Nimes Big John Natural Indigo Selvedge Denim I dig the faded indigo, I did the yellow selvedge line, and I dig the fit. Check…

Standard Relay: Red Wing 4563, Denham Steamer Trunk, Vice Guide to North Korea, Post Overalls Engineer Jacket, Artisanal Pencil Sharpening, and more.

Red Wing Heritage 4563 Boot: Available at Select Nordstrom’s Department Stores I’ve seen this on a few different sites now but it’s worth a mention anyway. If you live near one of the lucky Nordstrom stores graced with this special boot’s presence, go check ‘em out and tell me what you think. I’d love to hear all about it and I’m sure your wardrobe could benefit from a pair (mine certainly could). This boot was built specifically for farmers because of it’s high durability but lasting comfort all based upon a hybrid construction. You can find the boots at the following Nordstrom stores: WA:  Seattle and Bellevue Square CA:  San Francisco, South Coast Plaza, Topanga, The Grove, Santa Monica & Fashion Valley UT:  Fashion…

The Standard Relay: Billykirk x Need Supply Co., Natural Process denim show, Machine Shop Lighting, Imogene + Willie’s Nashville Guide, and more.

Posted on December 15, 2011

Billykirk x Need Supply Co.’s Schoolboy Satchel Bag: Let’s be real here, no schoolboy will be carrying this thing. Even the waspiest kids on earth would get their asses walloped at prep school for hauling this sucker around. But you won’t. No siree. You’ll get some pretty swell looks from whoever you pass on the street, assuming you don’t drive to work. $365 from Need Supply Co. (Found via Selectism). Travelin’ Around: Imogene + Willie’s Guide to Nashville: This is a really super article written by Matt & Carrie Eddmenson of Imogene + Willie for Park & Bond. Take a look around it especially if you’re headed to Nashville sometime soon or were even thinking of it.   Natural Process: a study in worn…

The Standard Relay: Makers in the Modern Era, Vintage Camera Nightlights, Aether Apparel’s Airstream, Geoff Watts of Intelligentsia Coffee, and more.

Posted on November 23, 2011

Makers in the Modern Era catalog:  Basically a great photo set of Portland-based artisans working in their shops. The professions cover a host of walks of life so there’s a little something for everyone here. (via Cool Hunting). Vintage Camera Nightlights:  Exactly what it sounds like. Vintage camera night lights. They look neat and will match your Instagram/Hipstamatic app oh-so-perfectly. (via Curated Magazine). Aether Apparel’s Airstream Trailer: I don’t know why this isn’t being done by every medium-sized apparel company in the U.S., probably because this ain’t exactly high season for taking a road trip. Regardless, check out some of the photos from Aether apparel’s airstream trailer that’s meandering it’s way around the U.S. (sort of) (via Cool Hunting). Cool Hunting’s Gift Guide: Cool…
