Here’s a photo taken by Fred Herzog in 1968 in Vancouver entitled Man with Bandage. This photo was shot from the hip while walking past – without being noticed – and because of this it really seems to capture the moment. I’d love to be able to time warp back to this exact moment just to see what happened next.
Here’s a gif from the UK street artist INSA’s collaboration with EVISU. It’s a mix of fetish with, of course denim, and can be found at the EVISU gallery in their Hong Kong store. I prefer this kind of “in context” art rather than seeing a whole load of pieces in a gallery. Looks pretty cool too.
Nike ACG Alder Low in Black / Mercury Grey

Nigel Cabourn Everest Parka Camo
Synonymous with Nigel Cabourn’s AW season, the Everest Parka goes into slightly new territory for AW13 with this Camo version. Priced at £2699.00 from End Clothing, they seem to get more expensive every year, but this is a pretty special one. If you can hold tight till the sales I’d recommend saving upwards of £1000…
This is the single Sunday from Australian psych-rockers Crocodiles who just started their UK tour. Seeing these guys tonight at the Sebright Arms in London. Tickets already sold out unfortunately.
Reebok Classic Jam Black / Orange
I like these! Not to everyone’s taste and perhaps overly retro 90s but a bit of black and speckled stuff has me sold. I’m not sure whether these are available from the UK but you can pick them up from French store Snkrs for €85.00.

"A Day in the Life of a British Clothing Factory"
Founded by Thomas Hill in 1860 British label Sunspel must be one of very few brands that still manufacture in the UK So all credit to them and a fitting video to celebrate. Their range encompasses mens and womens basics as well as trousers, knitwear and outerwear.

Adidas Originals Tech Super Grey Purple
New for AW 2013 are two colourways of the Originals Tech Super. What makes these different form predecessors is the addition of nubuck on the upper alongside the usual mesh and suede. Apparently these aren’t available till Autumn / Winter but it appears they’re on sale from the Adidas online store in the UK.
