Don't let the lingering Summer sun fool you, we are in fact in October, and Bahr has a new list for this heat and the upcoming Autumn chill.
I know, Im like an old sneaker head with all my Nike plugs. But guess what, thats what I am. Nike has dropped another color in the Inneva Woven. They sold out as fast as Usain Bolt when they released, but my watering hole in Beantown, Bodega has them. Wolf Grey even sounds as good as these came out.
No need to put away your Birkenstocks just because Fall has arrived. Rock the brands London style with enclosed heel, freak it with some nice thick socks and stay comfy all through Winter.
I know a zip sweater might not sound too appealing but in Norse Projects go-to Bubble texture knitwear, Im telling you this is a great piece to layer. Throw a five dollar thermal on underneath so you dont lose any street cred. It may be cold in Copenhagen but Norse keeps the heat coming every Winter.
My good friends over at Naked & Famous have been coming with real innovative denim over the years. From their Pomegranate colored denim (real Pomegranate juice in the dye), to scratch-n-sniff raspberry-scented denim, to the Thermochromic Selvedge that changes color with body heat these dudes keep things interesting. Im liking the brands Japanese Nep Selvedge, (nep is when little cotton fibers sort of fluff out from the weave) with a multi-color yarn nep fabric that gives these jeans a Donegal Tweed feel. Some people actually think that nepping is a fault but N&F love raw denim of all varieties, and theyre weirdoes so they think that nep denim is actually cool. I concur!
Well, well, well! Any True Yorker knows that The Army or M-65 jacket has been a staple in the NYC boroughs for years. Once it gets cold, cats go to the local Army & Navy store and cop this with the removable lining. In the past few years all of your favorite brands have incorporated the M-65 into their collections but of course no one does it like Supreme. Recently theyve teamed up with the estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat for a small capsule collection. This M-65 featuring Basquiats Cassius Clay work screened on the back is the stand-out piece.
Right after their epic New Balance collab, here comes Norse Projects banging us in the head with another clean collab, this time with Vans. Made from some weird material, theyve coined it 'Stoflighed', it's Danish for texture and form. Looks and feels pretty sick. They come in both era and chukka, Cant go wrong with either.
When it comes to Japanese brand WTaps, its the subtle pieces that appeal to me. The collection is always military inspired and really expensive. I prefer their older stuff and this lumber cap with the foldable earflaps reminds me of the accessories that Ive loved since the brands inception.
You ever wake up and even after a shower your face just doesnt feel awake? Never the case with Kiehls Facial Fuel products for men. With exception of the eye-depuffer which I just cant get into, Kiehls has concocted a whole range of good stuff that will wake your face the f**k up!
Are you ready for some football?! If youve noticed, football jerseys are making a comeback with the fashion kids. Quite a few brands have released football jerseys with numbers referring to the year the brand started or blah blah. Personally I just keep it official and turn to Mitchell & Ness for my throwbacks. You can size down this isnt 2001 and any cool guy can pull the jersey look off. I rock players that I loved when I was shorty, like this 1980 Philadelphia Eagles Wilbert Montgomery, who was so underrated in the era of great running backs. I was pissed when the Raiders beat them in the Super Bowl.
Kanyes A.P.C. capsule collection was hotter than fish grease and sold like crack in the 80s. This A.P.C x Kanye Trippy Symphony tee has been restocked at END Clothing for the fiends that love to say theyve #beentrill. Not exactly my cup of tea but its in store now for all you new jack streetwear kids!
