Pop Up Flea‘s coming back to New York City and is set to be the largest event the boys have put on to date. The space is massive and they’ll be in the heart of Soho. Oh, and the lineup’s as good as we’ve seen it. Everyone from Hodinkee and Shinola to Rancourt & Co., Todd Snyder, Baxter of California, and the Carson Street Clothiers team. The cool thing about the Pop Up Flea to us is that you get to connect with the folks behind all these great brands on a real one-to-one level. The space is always filled with great people that just want to have a good time and show off some of their great product in the process.

Pop Up Flea 2013 in NYC will take place from December 6th to 8th at 82 Mercer Street in Soho. For more info and to stay up to date on all things PUF, check out thepopupflea.com, Twitter and Instagram.

Isaia Napoli Factory for ACL Made in Italy Tour

Isaia Napoli Factory for ACL Made in Italy Tour

MW drops the third installment in ACL’s Made in Italy Tour, this time giving us a look inside the workspace of Isaia located on the outskirts of Napoli. Isaia is a family-run business as it was founded in 1957 by Enrico Isaia and is now helmed by the designer’s grandson Gianluca Isaia. The majority of folks that work in production are second or third generation tailors, with the craft being in their blood. As for the factory, it’s a two-story building that’s “tucked away in an unmarked alley with a large gate.”

Gilt MANual | A Continuous Lean Factory Tour

Gilt MANual | A Continuous Lean Factory Tour

Though we’ve had the opportunity to visit Michael Williams from ACL on numerous occasions, we still enjoy watching the man get his well-deserved shine. The one thing you see during this sit down with Tyler and Josh of the Gilt MANual is that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. He enjoys what he does and all the recognition and respect that come with it are just bonuses.

This is out MANual Minute we wished was much longer. Check out the video below.

ACL | Tokyo’s J’Antiques Vintage Store

ACL | Tokyo's J’Antiques Vintage Store

Michael from A Continuous Lean has been keepeing himself busy as he was recently over in Japan and thankfully for us, he didn’t leave his camera at home. He turns us to J’Antiques, an amazing vintage shop located in the Nakameguro district of Tokyo.

In addition to the beautiful merchandising, J’Antiques was stocked with great vintage. The shop has everything from paper goods to vintage military clothes to work wear and a shit-ton of antique furniture.  Granted, a lot of what is for sale there is from the States, but go for the inspiration, go for the wonderful dirty mix of old stuff and go to J’Antiques for that hard to find something that they beat you to.

Check out some of our favorite shots after the jump.
