Two rad ladies and one collection of FW15 apparel hit the road to shoot some photos. More specifically, Chelsea Parrett and Jules Davies with some choice pieces from Snow Peak‘s new collection featuring some fun printed down.
Today the brand announces the opening of a new store in SoHo at 59 Crosby Street on November 20th. Follow along with the new shop here.

Manastash was once a Seattle-based brand founded by Robert Jungmann, today running Jungmaven, but since 2005 the company has been in the hands of Japanese owners. Over the years they’ve done some great and funky stuff: patchwork synthetic outwear, patterned deep pile fleece reminiscent of Patagonia Snap-T’s, and some more traditional outdoor inspired apparel. This season’s collection has a more refined tone compared to years past, which I quite enjoy. View the whole lookbook/catalog here.
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.

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.
Amazing vintage hemp Yeti Cycles cap, manufacturer label reads “warning: do not smoke this cap.” Up for grabs on ebay to whomever has a $79 hole burning in their pocket.
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 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.
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.
