Carhartt Squire Coat.

Carhartt is a brand that's been on everybody's lips recently, what with their heritage collection proving a huge success it seems people who knew about the brand before but never really took much notice are starting to realize the 122 year old company are capable of reworking their classic pieces and bringing them into the 21st century.

Last year I bought the chore coat and it got me through winter, this year Carhartt brings out a slightly modified version with a distressted look called the Squire Coat, unlike the chore coat it has enforced elbow patches and ribbed storm cuffs with a lived in look, the jacket is incredibly warm, a great autumn colour and an absolute timeless piece.

The Carhartt Squire Coat is now available at Attic for £190

and if you're still not sold, watch below.

Kieth Haring book: flick through.

A million bloggers have given their very interesting insight to this book, but one thing I found when googling was that hardly any had shown the inside of this 500 page mammoth. See below for a very quick "in the bookshop" flick through which I hope intrigues you into buying this great book.

Heard the sad news this morning and it reminded me of a double page spread about the man himself I have in a copy of The Face magazine from 1983. R.I.P.

Nike Vintage: Cortez

Recently across the blogworld a lot of attention has been on Jerry Seinfeld’s choice of Nike trainers during the hit sitcom Seinfeld, but to me one of the best and most certainly overlooked Nike models of the show was George Costanza’s (Jason Alexander) infamous navy Nike Cortez’s, which he wore in every episode and apparently when the show ended in 1998 Alexander asked if he could keep the pair as the most legendary artefact of the show.

I knew that a couple of years ago Nike had released a vintage version of the shoe and because of this there would be no hope in anywhere still stocking it, therefore leaving me to keep an eye on eBay. With a bit of luck last week a pair popped up in my size, brand new and at the bargain price of £32.

Plywood 2.

A small update from a previous blog post of mine.

It's been a slow year for me and Supreme decks. When I heard of a John Baldessari collab I initially had high hopes, after stumbling upon this blog post, and instantly became a fan of the images he used with bold, bright colours but the final design proved to be very poor and a huge let down. The George Condo decks were a little too Yeezy for my liking so that was another easy pass, however 2011 brought out the best deck since the Damien Hirst spin paint set from 2009 and was a no-brainer, with Robert Longos men in cities deck "Eric".

Brilliant book with brilliant images. It has inspired me to buy a pair of these from Saturdays Surf NYC, only because these Yellow Rat were out of stock. I may however return for one of their l/s pull over shirts. It is surprisingly difficult to find older-style trunks
