2 Twists On Traditional Men’s Jeans By Chip Foster


Just when you think you’ve seen everything in terms of wash, treatment, distressing, and style, a denim designer comes out with something new and exciting to keep consumer wheels turning. Chip Foster has a few new styles we’re excited about, ranging from comfortable and stylish to clever and quirky.

The first style is a flannel-blend slim straight fit men’s jean. Though slim, the fit is more relaxed, and the 12 oz indigo fabric feels just as comfy as the flannel sheets you put on your bed in the winter.

The second pair is a rainbow nap 12 oz  relaxed fit jean. The outside looks like your run-of-the-mill pair of jeans, but the inside features a rainbow spectrum of the threads woven into the nap. That means as your jeans begin to wear and crease, you’ll have hints of color showing subtly. How cool is that?

Both pairs of jeans will be available in late August at Nordstrom, Henry Lehr in the Hamptons, Loren in Brooklyn, and Independent in Arkansas. Check back for an expanded list of retailers on the Chip Foster waiting list, or contact melissa@chipfoster.com for details.

Men’s Dapper Style & A Red Bow-tie #projectny


We ran into this stylish show-goer browsing menswear at Project NY and had to snap a pic of his put-together look. Summer or not, some guys layer on vintage-inspired style. Some of them, like this guy, really pull it off! He wore a light blue summer jacket with a muted plaid shirt, red polka-dot bow-tie and beige chinos with black loafers. Switch out this jacket with a chambray alternative for fall and you’re good to go.

Kunna’s Denim Jackets, Inspired By Japanese Industrial Uniform #projectnyc


The roots of denim lay deep in the highly functional uniforms of industrial workers worldwide. We love when brands reach back into these roots and transform the concept into something modern and fashion-forward. Japanese denim brand Kunna showed us a heavily washed, soft-textured chambray jacket that does exactly this, featuring patch pockets and a relaxed fit. Pair this classic with your current summer looks to transition seamlessly into fall.

Raleigh Denim’s Summer Canvas Jean For Men #projectnyc


We’re live blogging from PROJECT New York for the next three days, hand selecting our favorite new products on the market. First up, our friends from Raleigh Denim just tempted us with this rad pair of men’s canvas jeans. The 10.5 oz oak mill natural canvas is highlighted with red top stitching, and if you turn them inside out, you’ll find hip bones screened on the cotton pockets. The paper bag treatment creates a crinkled texture that adds dimension to the silhouette. We’re sold.

Take A Peek Behind The Levi’s Vintage Clothing Brand


What do you know about Levi’s jeans?  Online retailer Mr Porter takes us behind the scenes and inside the Levi’s Vintage Clothing brand.  Denim heads will appreciate taking a peek inside the archival vaults of 100-year old garments, barely holding together in an acid-free shroud.  Design Director Miles Johnson and his team documents vintage garments to faithfully capture “the spirit and heritage of American work wear,” from the San Francisco vaults, and recreates them at the LVC Amsterdam headquarters.  You don’t have to go that far to get your hands on a Levi’s reproduction.  Mr Porter carries some covetable denim pieces you can wear, now. Scroll down to watch the video.

Fresh Men’s Shoes For Spring: Our Picks From n.d.c.


Spring is the perfect time to refresh your shoe collection and add some interest to the mix. Whether the warm weather will find you hosting gatherings in the park with your friends or embracing downtown New York strolls on the regular, make sure you do all of these things with style. The made-by-hand men’s shoe line n.d.c. has your back (and your feet, obviously).  We highlight our favorite pairs from the spring lookbook below.

ndc-mens-shoes-hand-made-spring

Our favorite picks…

Espadrilles: Take a stroll along the French Riviera in the 1960s with these flexible, relaxed and easy espadrilles. Made with the flexible and light ‘Strobel’ construction (where the upper and insole are stitched toether), the shoes are slip-lasted and stitched to the leather outsole with natural yute trimming the edge.

The Maxim

The Pablo

Foundation: Reminiscent of 1960′s London’s city-gent style, these elegantly shaped rejuvenated classics belong in every man’s wardrobe.

 Faderless Toecup Son 

ndc-shoes-faderless01

-

Goodyear: The Goodyear line goes back to the beginning of the n.d.c. story when designer Enrique washed his pair of n.d.c. Goodyear brogues in his home washing machine after deciding that they looked just a little too perfect. The esult was like nothing that has been seen before on the market: beaten-up, washed shoes with a whole personality of their own.

Addison
