The good folks at Nomad Toronto posted up an interview with Errolson Hugh founder of ACRONYM and designer at Stone Island Shadow Project. As a visionary in technical clothing, it’s always worthwhile reading some of the insights that Errolson gives into his design process. Most of the interview focuses on his designs under the Stone Island Shadow Project label. A quote from the interview is below
What has Shadow Project enabled you to do that you haven’t been able to do with Acronym?
Errolson Hugh: Colour. Colour, and all the fabric research. We’ve learned an incredible amount making things in Italy. The way things are made in Italy is unique, I think, to the world. The tradition, the manufacturing culture in Italy is so, so strong, stronger than anywhere else I’ve ever seen it. It’s incredible to meet people who have been in the industry – like, Carlo is eighth-generation textile. And his son, Silvio, will be the next. It’s crazy. People identify themselves with their work here, with manufacturing, with making fabrics, with knitting garments. And, so, when you talk to them about it, and you talk to them on the level of, “I’m really into this and want to try that,” if you’re sparking new ideas, they’re totally excited to try it. They’re not like, “Well, are you gonna order two million?” It’s really a product, craftsmanship-based culture that I hadn’t encountered at that level before. Without which, Stone Island is basically impossible. The suppliers they work with closely, they have a partnership where, in some cases, Stone Island is almost like their research division. There’s an incredible amount of openness between the fabric suppliers, even the yarn manufacturers, or the dyers. That’s something we would never have seen otherwise. And then, of course, designing fabrics is something you just don’t usually get a chance to do. And designing fabrics in the way Stone Island can make them is also its own special thing. Very, very interesting.

In case you missed it, take a look at our previous shop profile with Nomad.
The best part about the process of posting these style profiles is getting insight into someones style and getting to know them better as a person through that . I’ve known Lucas for some time now as a friend and it was cool to interview him for the site and hear more about how his style developed.
I hear a lot of my taller friends complain that it’s hard for them to find clothes that fit. At 6’7″ Lucas definitely stands out in a crowd but I admire how he was able to mix pieces from a variety of brands to create a personal aesthetic that represents his personality and interests well. I sat down with the homie to discuss where his style has been and where its going.
When did your interest in clothes start? What kind of stuff were you wearing back then?
I have always had an appreciation for clothes, but the turning point for me was the first time I went to the old Recon store on Eldritch Street. I was finally making enough money to get some decent clothes. I stumbled across the store when the first Stash AF1 was releasing, and I was blown away by the product. The store manager was kind enough to educate me about the brand and the NY streetwear scene in general. This lead to finding out about Retail Mafia brands that were prevalent in the scene at the time. In particular I wore SSUR, Supreme and Alife tees and hoodies, Evisu jeans, Northface jackets, and Nikes.

For one reason or another I’ve never tried customizing my own pair of Nike IDs until now. I was always a bit put off by the wait time and I suppose I was waiting to get inspired. A few weeks ago I really wanted another pair of Air Max 90′s so I pulled the trigger on this design. The design is inspired by the Air Max 90 Infrareds. My goal is to make the whole shot lighter and more minimal feeling.
I basically took the parts on the shoe which were originally black and switched them out for white. The color on the IDs doesn’t exactly match that of the infrareds and I wasn’t able to keep the red on the actual soles. Other than that, I’m pretty happy with the way these came out and excited to wear them constantly. The quality on the IDs are passible but I was a little disappointed with some of the stitching (particularly around the plastic part that reads Air Max). Definitely enjoyed the actual process of bringing the sneaker from concept to reality and I really hope that they put Air Max 95′s back on the Nike ID website.
Friends: how many of us have them? by Lucas Tyson
(Editors note:Whodini may have some input on this)
I had an easy time making friends in college. Relating to others came naturally because we were all thrust into the similar circumstance of a brand new environment that we had to learn together, along with an abundance of free time to socialize. I finished school and still made friends, but they came at a considerably slower rate. Less free time, more stress. Over time the closest of my college friends began to leave New York, and my social life began to disintegrate. This was extremely troubling, because let’s face it, when you’re drinking alone at noon on a Sunday, it’s not called “brunch” it’s called “a drinking problem.”
After much introspection I realized the reason I wasn’t acquiring friends was internal: I was waiting for people to find me instead of pursuing them on my own. If you’re reading this you may be experiencing the same things. There is a method to making friends that works for me, and I’ve broken it down into four parts to ease the process for you.

I haven’t had the chance to check out The New Order Magazine Vol.9 for myself yet, but I did come across this editorial featuring garments from EG Fw13 and some familiar faces from the Nepenthes camp. I really like the casual photo style here and the inclusion of both louder patterned items with more subtle gear. The magazine cover story is a feature on Jun Takahashi so it seems like the latest volume of the publication is well worth purchasing.

Most of the time I much prefer looking at clothing through editorials rather than lookbooks. Over the years I’ve saved quite a few images from various sources that feature pieces by NEIGHBORHOOD. The brand has such a strong point of view and I appreciated the way stylists and photographers were able to flip it’s brand image any manner of ways. To find inspiration for my personal style I like to look back at both old editorials of brands I like just to see the evolution of the brand. The range of editorials after the jump range from moody and militaristic to more casual everyday style.
Journal Standard’s M.O is to put out well made casual wear classics. Their Fall/Winter lookbook has that in spades. If you are looking to get your grown man on at your day office job, you could definitely do worse than Journal Standard.
