The Air Force 1 is the model of choice this time around with three colourways, olive, black and camo, ready for launch.

Lego Volkswagen T1 Camper Van

 

I dont care what age you are…you gotta love Lego? Yeah? If not you will now…I  present you this amazing replica of the iconic 1962 Volkswagen camper van. It is designed right down to the last detail, such as the rounded roof and window frames, the three way color split at the front, the opening ‘splittie’ safari windshield and roof rack. Definitely a must have for every die hard VW fan.

Stussy MFG MA1 Jacket

 

With each consecutive collection, the range of Stussy apparel has developed better and better since its early years — each season adopting new styles and venturing into newer garment executions. For Autumn Winter 2012 the Stussy MFG range debuts a military-inspired MA1 Jacket that is mocked up in olive or black. Initially developed in the 1950s, the MA1 jacket taps the bomber jacket roots with both a classic execution as well as in two iconic colorways. Manufactured from a 100% nylon shell, the jacket features a bold orange interior lining, a zip front, snap button front pockets and is rounded out by a Stussy MFG embroidery tag near the lower cuffed hem.

Publish Autumn Winter 2012 Lookbook

 

Publish is a brand that prides itself on timeless products “that transcend the realms of art and fashion.” For Autumn Winter 2012, the label’s collection is titled, “The Officer and Gentleman,” with its primary influences being military garments  refined for the modern gentleman. As such, the clothes take on a more sophisticated polish for the season while still leaning heavily on technical details and prints. Included in the line are familiar styles and motifs — elasticized jogger pants, contrast pocket tees and camouflage patterns that all make encore appearances in fresh makeups. Meanwhile, the label’s range of seasonal outerwear is the collection’s real standout, a blend of classic outdoors-inspired styles and street elegance.

Swims Autumn Winter 2012

 

The Norwegian climate has never been one kind to footwear. The wet season often required footwear to revolve around either old beaters or galoshes, both which yielded little sartorial flair. The creation of SWIMS looked to redefine the modern-day galosh, providing an intersection of timeless shoe designs with waterproof and water resistant performance. The range of offerings spans some familiar favorites including desert boots, brogues and Chelsea boots. Look for SWIMS at select retailers globally.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feit Leather Bund Watch Strap

The Bund Strap watchband was first used by WWII pilots because of its insulating properties. The leather band would ensure that the watch face would not freeze or burn a pilot’s wrist as they were exposed to extreme conditions. Later the first man to venture into space – Yuri Gagarin – wore his watch on a Bund Strap. Perhaps its most celebrated wearer was Paul Newman whose signature Rolex Daytona was always worn on a Bund Strap.

The FEIT Bund Strap is classic and simple and is made from the same vegetable leather we use for our shoes. This leather is dyed with only natural ingredients and isn’t treated with any heavy metals. It contains none of the chrome found in most leathers and is, therefore, much better for your skin.
