Weekend Preview | FREEDMAN's Look Book

Freedman Clothing has done it.  They have made the rain that has taken over New York that much worse and made me homesick.  The folk/rock aesthetic of Freedman hits close to home (and we all know home is where the heart is) with their shirts being named after Southern California cities.  And his use of contrasting but not conflicting fabrics and Navajo-pattern accents are yet again amazing.  But my favorite this season has to be the Cambria Folk Rock shirt.  The corduroy shoulders accents the brown in the plaid pattern perfectly.  I will admit the Santa Cruz chambray is a breath of fresh air from the basic ubiquitous chambray.  A couple more pictures after the jump.

The Denim Debate

In October Ryan Plett of [you_have_broken_the_internet] fame approached myself along with 7 other people to be a part of a denim experiment. Ryan wanted us to be the lab rats for the grand Denim Debate. With almost 30 contributors now wearing in 23 different denim brands the Denim Debate has been launched and will be a constantly updated source for everything denim. My denim of choice: the Rogue Territory Stanton. Made from Cone Mills sanforized raw selvage denim and made in the USA.

Vans Heritage | The Off The Wall Pack

Back in August -- I know I'm a little late on this bandwagon but I will never give up an opportunity to talk about Vans no matter how late I am -- So, back in August Vans, the world's first skateboard shoes, launched their idea of a heritage line called Off The Wall.  It consisted of 3 of the original colorways of their now infamous Eras, one colorway of their slipon, one of their Old Skool '77 and one of their Mid Skool '77.  Launched with a limited edition box donning a vintage picture and a quote by Two John himself.  They are surprisingly the Eras are only $5 more than the basic styles while the Old Skool '77 are no different in price and both can be purchased here (the slipons and Mid Skool '77s are sold out, sorry).

The Hells Angels

Berdoo, the mother charter of the Hells Angels MC World, was started in 1948 in San Bernardino, CA and still exists to this day.  As an official men's club, with their love for beards, bikes and leather jackets, the original members met as the first legs of many of their rides from Fontana to Oakland at the Blackboard Cafe on Chester St in Bakersfield.  And to join you need only fulfill 6 requirements: 1. Be male, 2. be white, 3. have a valid driver's license, 4. have a working motorcycle (preferably Harley-Davidson), 5. not be a child molester, 6. not have applied to become a police officer or prison guard.  The HAMC through out the next 62 years will be known for drug peddlers, rabble rousers, and an overall motley crew.  They will cause many problems, like the Altamont free concert, and cause many deaths, such as the River Run Riots, but will stick together like a true brotherhood through it all.
