Visvim has brought back one of it’s best footwear models – the 7-Hole ’73-Folk. The boot references the US Military Vietnam jungle boot and is one of my personal favorites. The latest iteration of the sneaker comes in vegetable tanned leather and canvas on a Vibram sole. It’s especially nice to see the return of the murdered out version of these with a black sole. Three color ways of the boot are now available at IDOL Brooklyn.

Following up last summer’s ultra popular Kaws UT capsule collection, Uniqlo has hit up Futura for a series of collaborative graphic tees.  Fans of the street artist will recognize familiar prints including the point man, atoms and his signature hand-style on the tees. The release is set for March and should retail around the $15 mark if past UT collabs have been any indication. My personal favorite is the paint drip tees with his familiar script on the back.

In the jewelry world, the marketplace is divided into two segments: fashion jewelry and fine jewelry. Let’s compare and contrast the two.

The main distinguishing factor is the materials used in creating the jewelry. Fine jewelry is unsurprisingly made from precious metals and is set with precious gemstones such as diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires. On the other hand, fashion jewelry is made from base metals and is set with commonplace stones such as synthetic gems. What constitutes a precious metal? Generally only a few precious metals are used for jewelry: gold and platinum.  Of these two, gold is far and away the most popular, and for good reason.

The Kinfolk shop in Brooklyn is one of the best men’s shops in the city. With a mix of great labels from the US and Japan, the shop is immaculately designed and decorated. The Kinfolk team’s latest endeavor is two pop-up shops inside legendary  department store Lane Crawford in both Hong Kong and Shanghai. To commemorate the opening, the shops will stock exclusive Kinfolk tees as well as debuting the Eric Elm’s designed line POWERS. Check the above video to get a feeling what the original shop and pop-up are like.

Adidas is back with another Raf collab but this might be one of the best color ways yet. While the Ozweego has faded a bit into the background with all of the new releases Adidas is putting out each week, this ozweego comes in a really clean toned down color palette. In addition the team at Raf has placed some typographic design details around the sneaker along with a subtle logo hit. Get these now at Revive Michigan.

The leather jackets from Saint Laurent are some of my absolutely favorites. This lambskin version from SS17 has an easy to wear cropped cut and the usual essential details on a riders jacket. The zippers are off-set with zip and flap pockets at the front.

If you’re into double riders and want one that feels more luxe in terms of hardware, details with a more modern cut it’d be difficult to go wrong with this one. The only downside is the high price point.

Available at SSENSE.

Photos of these have circulated around blogs and IG for a few months now but finally a release is imminent. Errolson Hugh took to IG today to announce the launch through the ACRNM website which has already sold out. The shoe takes on the familiar Air Force One high and adds a compression strap and a zipper upper sleeve that covers parts of the shoe. The craftsmanship on these looks excellent but clock do cost a fair bit more than a normal Air Force One coming in at 250EUR.  If previous releases are any indication expect these to pop up exclusively online through Nike Lab and wholesale accounts.

With so many menswear shows and lookbooks released already for Fall/Winter 2017, I’ve done the tough work of looking through them to find some of the best looks thus far. While looking through collections can be great to find future grails and items you’d like to purchase come this fall, it can also just be an effective source of inspiration for putting together new looks for yourself. The styling in collections tends to be a bit out there for everyday wear so feel free to pick and choose aspects of these looks to try out yourself this year.

The Fall/Winter 2017 from Undercover is based around the theme of the Brain Washed generation. The pieces themselves cover all the essentials from tailored pieces to footwear and accessories and heavy weather parkas. There are many patterned items with graphic flourishes displayed but there are also a ton of more muted tonal looks in here. As always there are some signature Jun Takahashi design details such as the leather sleeves on the asymmetrical down jacket. The inclusion of oversized and downright baggy looks in this collection is a welcome departure to the usual UC formula as well.
