Happy Socks by Terry Richardson

We are digging the repurposing of Happy socks into articles of clothing in their new ad campaign shot by Terry Richardson 
Makes us want to get out our sewing machine and see what we can come up with ourselves. It also reminds us of the brilliant Maison Martin Margiela who in his '91-92 Fall collection created tops recycled from old but unused military socks. Check out a step by step tutorial of who you can make your very own here.

Sharp and Snazzy!

A beautifully tailored 3 button jacket in a black and blue plaid. Inspired from a classic hunting jacket with angular elbow patches and upper back yoke in black. The collar can be buttoned all the way up and secured with the cross tab for more of a military look.

From 12-4 enjoy spiked cider and Apple Cider Doughnuts from Dunwell Doughnuts, Williamsburg’s brand new artisanal, vegan doughnut shop, while supplies last. raves about Brave GentleMan, “With its rugged, slicked-back aesthetic and stoic self-assuredness, the Novacas for Brave GentleMan shoe collection underscores one indubitable fact: It’s never been manlier to be vegan. A collaboration between blogger Joshua Katcher of The Discerning Brute and the Portugal-based vegan footwear label… The names of the shoes, ‘Worker,’ ‘Defender,’ and ‘Mastermind,’ call upon traditional roles that men take pride in, and that also inspire men to embrace sustainability and guardianship as very masculine, brave, and necessary work that needs to be done.
An of our ties“Despite their speckled, tweedy texture, each neck- and bow tie is constructed from a blend of organic cotton and recycled hemp, then stiffened with interfacing derived from recycled plastic bottles—a manufacturing first for ties. All eight designs are crafted in New York City’s historic Garment District under fair-labor conditions, with options that include a 2.5-inch tie, a narrow bow tie, and a broad bow tie, depending on what style of “dappery” is most appropriate for the occasion.”
