Natural tan leather has been creeping into so many sneaker colorways this year but this clean execution of a Vans slip-on is too clean to pass up. Vans released a pack of Vachetta tan sneakers using it’s classic models such as the Era, the Slip-On and the Old School. The obvious reference to Hender Schemes comes to mind when you see these, however these are just a fraction of the price.
You can get these directly from Vans.
While the the recent retro of the cross-bone WTAPS Vans have come and gone from most store shelves, this off-white anaconda WTAPS Vans Era have slipped under the radar. Low-top anaconda-embossed leather in off-white featuring a logo patch at the tongue. Tonal stitching and a rubber gum sole round out this model.
Get these at SSENSE before they’re gone.

London based Good Hood put together this editorial with some select items Featuring the latest goods from brands including NEIGHBORHOOD, Norse Projects, Unrivaled, Soulland, Maiden Noir and P.A.M. Without a doubt more and more men’s shops are brands are using females in their visuals, however I think this is one of the better lookbooks I’ve seen styled with a street sensibility in some time. All the looks are a bit oversized and the silhouette here is can inspire guys and girls alike.

As a gatekeeper to one of New York’s nightlife staples (Le Bain) Ian has literally seen it all. Given his own sense of style it’s not surprising that Ian has also made a career for himself as a stylist. He has worked with major brands including Levi’s and Uniqlo but also contributed to countless editorials dressing the likes of Azealia Banks. Most recently he did the styling for DEGEN and ODD’s New York Fashion Week presentations. I linked up with him recently and photographed him in some of his favorite fits while discussing his viewpoints on styling and style.
How did growing up in DC influence your style? How has your style evolved since then?
Growing up in suburbs of DC, I think it’s made my style kinda preppy; but since middle school I’ve always read fashion magazines and had access to the internet which I think influenced my style more than where I grew up.
As of late, I find my style gearing to more simple and classic pieces, less trendy and disposable items.

How did you start out as a stylist and what approach do you bring to styling?
I came to the city to study fashion design, but realized it wasn’t exactly what I wanted… After learning all the the potential things a stylist could do, I knew it’s what I wanted to do.
When it comes to styling, I just want to propose great outfits that people can actually wear; give new perspectives on layering, contrasting prints, or mixing brands.

I’m constantly inspired by the style of strangers on the streets of New York. But when I’m online I like to take a look at what’s occurring in far off lands and Japanese streetstyle has long been my favorite. I would say that Japanese streetstyle blogs really emphasize brand-mixing and celebrating a personalized look. Here are some of my favorite looks from the Japanese streetstyle blog Style Arena.
Here are some of my November streetstyle picks from Harajuku, Ginza, Daikanyama, and Shibuya.
Hunting jacket: JUNYA WATANABE COMME des GARÇONS MAN
Sarrouel Pants: GANRYU
Loafers: Hender Scheme × HARUTA
Bag: Hender Scheme
A very Junya-esque look worn with a lot of confidence. The proportions and lines are clean and the pants are drop-crotch without being extreme. Casual and effortless and the all khaki is a good contrast to the indigo shirt below.
Trench Coat: COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS
Shirt: COMME des GARÇONS
Paz is wearing a men’s jacket and owning it. This pattern isn’t easy to pull off but the color on the dress and shoes help tone down how eye-catching it is. This fit is better than the sum of it’s parts and to me that indicates great personal style.
Chester Coat: URBAN RESEARCH
Loafers: URBAN RESEARCH
Tote Bag: MARC BY MARC JACOBS
A nice languid fit that’s broken up by the cropped patterned trousers and cropped coat sleeves. A simple fit but the looseness of the clothes puts a really nice drape. Doesn’t hurt that this beezy has such a great haircut either.
Chester Coat: JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN
Shirt: JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN
Slacks: JOHN LAWRENCE SULLIVAN
Tote Bag: YOHJI YAMAMOTO
The vans in this fit tone down a luxe look with mostly John Lawrence Sullivan. I like that the chesterfield does not look too dressy here and instead gives more of a youthful vibe. The slacks fit perfect but the purple socks put this one over the top.
Coat: COMME des GARCONS
Jacket work: COMME des GARCONS
Shirt: COMME des GARCONS
Pants skinny: banal Chic Bizarre
Shinya is pulling off three difficult things here: orange hair, black and navy and layering a jacket underneath a coat. For that he deserves props. Before you attempt this look make sure your swag is up to pair, self-doubt will be your downfall.
A few glimpses at an upcoming Third Looks editorial ‘No Guts, No Glory’. Look for the feature later this week featuring men’s pieces by Kenzo, White Mountaineering, Comme des Garcon, Junya Watanabe Patrik Ervell and more. A sincere thank you to everyone who helped this come together.
