The Standard Relay: Lookbooks from Beauty & Youth, Private White V.C, Happy Socks, Lifetime Collective, & Aether Apparel

Posted on August 30, 2012

After a bit of a hiatus The Standard Relay is back and just in time for lookbooks dropping like flies. Wait…Anyway, here’s a roundup of lookbooks and other good stuff that’s been coming out this week. And last week, too. Beauty & Youth United Arrows F/W ’12 Lookbook There’s not much here that really showcases clothing but the shoot looks like it was fun as hell. Click through for some highly stylized debauchery (via Selectism). Private White V.C. F/W ’12 Lookbook A somewhat somber and serious looking shoot, the clothes look great and make me wish I still had a cold winter as a future here in Los Angeles. The clothes remind me of a mix between something I’d see from midwestern laborers and…

The Standard Relay: White’s Boots x Imogene + Willie, Moore & Giles Apron, Baracuta Promo Video, Explosions in the Sky, & more.

Moore & Giles Leather Work Apron For those of us who don’t work behind a desk To tell you the truth, I’ve grown a little tired of seeing companies churn out work aprons and charge an arm and a leg. It’s exactly what’s wrong with “workwear”, or maybe it’s the point of why it’s cool in fashion. Either way, I dig these aprons quite a bit. They’re more expensive than most but the pockets are well thought out, they’re cut extremely well, and the leather looks quite durable. Somehow they pull all this off without it appearing even remotely bondage-esque (via Cool Hunting). Postcard from 1952 by Explosions in the Sky I’m aware that Explosions in the Sky has it’s share of haters out…

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

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.

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…
