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.

CE SS 2017 from c.e on Vimeo.

C.E. has been known to release a video previewing each season and spring/summer 2017 is no exception in that regard. This time the film taps directly into club culture with a rave scene playing out with models rocking outfits from the collection. The music comes by way of Trilogy Tapes (the track feature EMG “Mother Funk”. I always thought C.E was a streetwear label that paired perfectly with nightlife and this video confirms that fact. Look for items to drop on the C.E. website as well as stockists including END CLOTHING and Well Gosh.

While there are countless online boutiques serving the latest items from designer brands, it’s harder to find a carefully curated selection of past season items. For most hardcore collectors and enthusiasts, the only solution has been to scour eBay, international auction sites and online marketplaces on forums and Grailed. At the end of 2016, a new online boutique shop emerged called Huiben. The shop had a very focused lineup of designer goods, including some very covetable items ranging from Acronym to vintage Helmut Lang. Also refreshing was the fact that the shop felt so independent and carried both women’s and men’s products. The site is launching plenty of great new items at 2PM PST on Thursday, Jan 12, 2017.

I had a chance to speak with the founders of Huiben and get the inside scoop

Fans of Guerrilla Group’s offerings have been patiently waiting for the latest EYES&SINS collection from the collective. The FW16 collection is here and entitled THE SLEƎPER. The collection takes inspiration from a little known cold war Soviet clandestine operation explained on their site. The actual pieces themselves once again extend the mix of techwear and militarism we’ve gotten to know. Some of the more interesting pieces including  beefed up winter noragi and also a technical apron piece similar to what you might see welder’s use.

While a couple pieces have been spotted on the site for sale, expect the entire collection to be available later tonight on the GFIRMG site.

Nike and Errolson Hugh have been busy this year, between the release of the Prestos and now this latest batch of ACG goods. In what might be the best collection to date, there are several key pieces that really take from the ACRONYM DNA and make it a bit more accessible and sports-oriented. Among them are the Alpine Jacket and the cargo pants which come in new DWR water-resistant fabric. You can shop the collection now online and at END.

A new mix has emerged from New York based producer MNTN. One of the main producers for r’n’b artist BOYSLASHFRIEND and rapper/singer GETOVERHER. For the mix MNTN lends his support to the protestors at Standing Rock. The mix itself is an audio journey through different genres and soundscapes featuring everything from J Dilla to Nine Inch Nails. In this highly politically charged year, this mix serves as a social commentary that borrows from protest music both new and old.
