J.Crew 'Holy Jackets' Video

J.Crew, as part of their J.Crew on Film series, recently took a trip to one of the storied Italian mills that produces fabric for our Ludlow suit. The team traveled to Italy’s Vitale Barberis Canonico mill to learn how the intersection of family, tradition and passion creates a suiting fabric tailor-made for the J.Crew’s iconic Ludlow suit. The film highlights the American brand’s appreciation for design, quality, heritage, artistry and the people who bring their designs to life.

Check out the video below in which Francesco Barberis Canonico, the charismatic scion of this family business, provides narration. The full story can be found on J.Crew.

From Valentino comes these lace-up sneakers for the Spring and Summer seasons. We actually saw this in person a short-while back and are glad to see MR PORTER picking them up. There’s a nostalgic appeal to them as the design takes us back a bit. The detailing is exceptional and ranges from a rich grey leather upper to red and blue suede heel patches and of course Valentino’s iconic studs along the heel. They’re Italian made and also feature contrasting brown and black rubber soles.

Tenue de Nîmes x Rogue Territory Broken Twill Jeans

Tenue de Nîmes x Rogue Territory Broken Twill Jeans

A collaboration we feel long overdue, LA denim brand Rogue Territory teamed up with Amsterdam outpost Tenue de Nîmes for a pair of jeans that pay homage to denim legend Wrangler. The jeans are based on the ‘Stanton’ slim-straight fit and are made from a 14oz ‘broken-twill’ from Cone Mills with a ‘double out seam’: two of the most important characteristics of the old Wrangler cowboy jeans. Broken Twill’s a denim weave that’s seldom used these days but the fabric breaks in very nicely and it’s a shame we don’t see more of it. It was originally developed by Wrangler as a solution for the natural habit of a yarn to twist and the thereafter ‘twisting legs’ of jeans.
