This year Patagonia celebrates the 30th birthday of the Snap-T and to shake things up a bit from the standard but well-loved Synchilla fleece body they employed some interesting tricks this season. Down insulation, deep pile fleece, and other fabrics make up the six piece collection being retailed exclusively by the company- they’re just that good.

More on the collection here.

The Hill-Side Summer 15




The Hill-Side has come a long way from their humble beginnings in pocket squares, ties, scarves, and other simple Japanese and American-milled textile accessories. Today the collection consists of those things still but adds shirts, sneakers, jackets, and even denim. For Summer 15 they’ve shot their entire lookbook within a few blocks of their South Williamsburg home base, which also happens to be where their brick and mortar shop Hickoree’s is located. Check out the lookbook in full here and keep an eye on THS- FW15 has some really good stuff coming.

Pop Up Flea NYC



Pop Up Flea‘s been going on since 2009 but somehow I’m just getting around to visiting it this year in its’ sixth edition. Internet shopping is convenient and all but there’s something special about getting to see all these brands side-by-side and under one roof. Should be a hoot.

Hackney GT Bobble


Hackney GT came out with the perfect bobble cap to go with their ever-so-popular alpine kit, but I gotta say it looks just as nice when worn without the rest of the ensemble too.. swoop the cap here and fleece jacket here.

Columbiaknit Rugby



This is a great vintage number from Portland’s Columbiaknit as seen on Countyline General; six different swatches of stripes make up the shirt in all. The company still makes these wacky rugby’s from leftover fabric they have around and you never know what you’re gonna get. A gamble sure, but they get as cheap as $16.50 per shirt if you’re willing to commit to buying six of them at once.

Topo Designs Fall 2014




This season Topo Designs updates some of their staple bags like the Daypack with new colorways (the clay cordura is a beaut) and expands their collection of apparel. Notable pieces from the apparel line for me include the wool work shirt (also comes in plaid flannel) with it’s mismatched pockets and the soon to be released puffer vest filled with lightweight Primaloft.

Also, be sure to check out their feature on Colorado Makers to learn more about one of my favorite gear companies out there.
