wtaps 2015 spring summer editorial by grind magazine 1 WTAPS SS15 Editorial in GRIND Magazine

GRIND Magazine is one of my favorite men’s style mags out of Japan. They always are able to present both high fashion and streetwear in a clean, creative context. WTAPS is one of the brands that they consistently feature and they really are able to nail down imagery that captures where WTAPS is currently at. While the military influence is still there, WTAPS has broadened both its audience and viewpoint over the last several years by diversifying the product and making it less of a literal ‘milspec’ brand than it has been in the past. The result is the brand embracing more items like the hats, sweats and flannels found here.

looks lies rocky 1 LOOKS / LIES 001

Today marks the launch of a new feature on Third Looks called ‘LOOKS/LIES’. The concept came as a result of various discussions between my friend Jayne Lies and I.  We’ve teamed up on some projects in the past including the Verticals music video for Celestial Trax and we always found the experience rewarding and eye-opening. We decided to launch this feature together as a means of preserving a moment in time (through photographic snapshots) in a quick and fun interview format. This ongoing series will serve as a platform through which we can document each subject’s style , aura thoughts and experiences within our local communities and beyond.

To launch the feature, Lies took a few photos of myself as I had been looking for a way to share my personal style is at currently. Through the word association style  interview questions that she put together, you should also get to know where i’ve been and where my head is at now. looks lies rocky 2 LOOKS / LIES 001

While the goth-street aeshetic this fits into is now a crowded space, the execution of the stands above much of the competition.  See more from the collection and explore the current offerings at Damir Doma’s online store.

Acronym x Nike Lunar Force 1 SP 4 Acronym x Nike Lunar Force 1SP

Fresh off the heels of the re-launch of Nike ACG, Acronym designer Errolson Hugh has once again teamed up with Nike on a new take on the Lunar Force 1. The literal centerpiece of the sneaker is a metal zip that extends up the upper. The sneaker features premium suede along with a patent leather heel. My favorite detail is the branded perforated leather tongue that sits atop the design.

Earlier photos also showed a white colorway of the sneaker but time will tell if those will be released alongside these black/white joints.  Look for these to hit Nike Lab locations and select Tier 0 accounts like END Clothing, Hanon and Oki-Ni in mid-June.

mr gentleman 2015 fallwinter collection main Mr.Gentleman Fall/Winter 2015 Collection

While Mr.Gentleman’s lead designer Takeshi Osumi may be better known for his work with the streetwear label Phenomenon, Mr.Gentleman continues to shape a unique vision of what a grown wardrobe can look like. The label exists to fill the gap between casual wear and a more tailored/refined look. I was immediately struck by the creative styling found in the Fall/Winter 2015 collection. While the usual assortment of men’s basics are here, they are remixed in ways that trigger lots of new outfit ideas. 

While the label is still difficult to find outside Japan, you can check out the SS15 collection online HERE and you can see more looks after the jump.

undercover x supreme 2015 spring summer collection 2 Supreme x Undercover SS15 Release

undercover x supreme 2015 spring summer collection 3 Supreme x Undercover SS15 Release

We’ve covered information on the Supreme x Undercover collection as it has slowly leaked online. Now an official release date has been set with the pieces dropping in-store and online this Thursday, March 26 in London, New York and Los Angeles. It will be available in Japan on the 28th.

Pieces include a Schott Perfecto collaboration, a Trench Coat, 4 T-shirt designs, hoodies, shorts, flannels, bondage pants and sweatshirts. The manufacturing , branding and pricing all seems geared towards the Supreme audience as opposed to the regular Undercover consumer. On the plus side I anticipate the pricepoint will be more in line with regular Supreme (hopefully) instead of the types of prices we saw with the CDG Shirt x Supreme collabs.

If there was a show stopping item here, it would definitely be the Schott collaborative leather jackets. These take some of the design ascents of the UC riders and translate them over to a standard Schott design. Other than the schotts, I expect the t-shirts and hoodie to generate the most interest. I can only imagine the type of line that will be forming this week, so if you don’t want to pay resell prices the best point is to check the Supreme site Thursday morning right when the drop happens.
