Timbs in summer has always been a strong look. All-white Timberland boots can often look oh so slightly off. Art Shudy comes to your rescue with their own timb-inspired boot for men contstructed from 100% rubber. White on a light tonal lug sole and with black/white laces. At $150, these are worth picking up from the VFILES shop. Just don’t wear them with DADA.
Nothing sets the Holiday mood like open bar and Chinese restaurants. The snaps are from the VFILES Holiday party which took place on Monday night. It was tons of fun celebrating with everyone who works so hard behind the scenes to keep VFILES humming along.

If you haven’t yet checked out Season 1 of Model Files you’ve missed some serious laughs. Everyone likes models and snarky humour (cept maybe Nazis) so definitely watch check out the VFILES YouTube channel with all the episodes.
I took some photos at the reunion show set a little while back and you can see those HERE.
Watch the episode below and witness familiar faces from the season and co-host P’Trique from “Shit Fashion Girls Say” fame do his thing.

Streetstyle is considered a recent phemenon and although it has definetly exploded in popularity in recent years, the documentation of style is nothing new. Film documentaries such as Wild Style and American Hardcore captured style through the the lens of subcultural movements and a host of newspapers and magazines have had street style features for decades.
VFILES has collected a small archive of streetsyle shots from the Japan-based Tune Magazine dating from 2005-2007. From these I have selected some of my favorites in this post. Images such as these act as a counter-balance to what has been filling up modern streetstyle blogs. These looks are not based around current trends or designer label whoring. It is clear through the images that these looks are a result of careful consideration and attention to the details. The lesson for me is that stylish individuals wear items in a way that imposes their style on the clothes not the other way around. You shouldn’t have to spend a ton of money to look great, you just have to know how you want to look. Let us know your thoughts on these looks in the comments section.
