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.

Visvim excels at making modern classics. Designer Hiroki Nakamura excels at bringing new life to overlooked vintage designs. The Iris liner is no exception. A reversible design with nylon on one side and a wool/mohair blend on the other; the liner can worn on it’s own or discreetly layered under fall/winter outerwear.

Click through for more images of the liner and go to IDOL Brooklyn to shop their Visvim selection.

Earlier this month, Visvim’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection was previewed in SENSE magazine. Now take a look at the official lookbook from the Japanese label. Shot in a scenic Californian modern home, the collection channels the laid-back west coat vibe of the 1970s. Workwear pieces blend in with easy staples and military jackets. Two of most sought after pieces are the insulated noragi and an overcoat adorned with native American inspired graphics. Look for the items to release on the Visvim site and international retailers like SSENSE and Mr.Porter.

While I didn’t like Visvim SS15 offering at all, Fall/Winter 2015 proved to be one of the labels best collections in some time. So far the follow-up seems to be quite promising with what’s shown in this new editorial in SENSE magazine. There’s a promising red anorak as well as a tan colored technical trench. Consider this a teaser for the full SS16 lookbook which should be dropping soon on the Visvim site. Look for product to start arriving online at shops including Mr.PorterSSENSE, END and Haven.

The FBT is an iconic Visvim model and also one if it’s most popular. The elk leather version popped up in the mid 2000’s and its awesome to see it brought back. There’s something undeniably luxurious about ‘elk leather’ and only someone as dedicated as Hiroki would think of turning it into a moccasin. A vibram sole and removable fringle round out this classic. You can get it over at END Clothing.

I had the pleasure of seeing the FW15 collection up-close when their showroom was setup in New York. The collection came about as a result of head designer’s Hiroki Nakamura’s travels through the United States, Italy and Europe. You can expect a host of fire outerwear including a great iteration on the MA-1 and a field jacket covered in vintage-style patches, not to the mention the Noragi inspired by bomber jackets.

While the pricepoint may have you saving for a few months, the creatively layered looks from the collection should tide you over. Look for stockists including Farfetch and End Clothing to get a hold of these pieces outside of Asia.

I’ve spent most my life firmly in the anti-boat shoe camp. The shoe conjures up images of frat parties and business casual conferences at the local Howard Johnson, but leave it up to Visvim to upgrade this prep staple into something more than the sum of it’s parts. These deserve to be on the deck of a mega yacht, not your buddy Steve’s poor excuse for a speedboat.

Find these over at Mr.Porter.

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.

Check out the full feature after the jump

Visvim hosted a showroom of sorts to present it’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection to press and buyers in town for New York Fashion Week. The serene space was a contrast to the hustle of other runway shows this week, and with no audible music, models or other distractions the attention fell upon what really mattered, the product itself.

Split between men’s and women’s each rack was separated by category, shirting, jackets , pants and accessories/shoes. One of the most exciting developments was the addition of MA-1 bomber jackets, some embroidered with flag details as seen below. Other field jackets were adorned with hand-illustrated graphics or embroidered patches. The footwear were mostly returning styles of boots and sneakers with the addition of a new minimal stan-smith inspired model. There’s definetly strong styles in here that are worthy additions for Visvim collections and the outerwear in particular represents a return to form in comparison to recent collections.

Find current season (SS15) items available now at SSENSE, Farfetch, and END Clothing.

As per usual each season Visvim introduces their seasonal collection in the pages of Japanese men’s style mag SENSE. The spring/summer 2015 selection isn’t much of a departure from past collections although it does seem like Hirkoi wanted to bring a more casual approach this time around as seen in the graphic tees and some of the busier ‘vintage’ prints. Of particular note is the return of the townsend fishtail in an washed cotton and a striking red Nomad jacket. See both pieces after the jump and shop select items on the visvim webstore or retailers such as SSENSE, Farfetch and Barney’s.
