Levi’s Vintage Clothing Double Breasted Parka

by Accidental Bear

Selectism - lvc-parka-01

 You may have flashbacks to 90’s pea coats but give it a fresh make over of a plaid lining, corduroy collar, two side flap pockets and horn buttons. This coat is most definitely worth arm wrestling your best friend over or stealing from some trick at a bar (I didn’t say that).

Naked & Famous Glow in the Dark Selvedge Denim Jeans

by Accidental Bear

These jeans will be desired by some and to ween down that grouping more is their price of $240. I was working retail back in the peak of raver day’s and can remember these little, brightly colored kids, sucking of pacifiers and glow sticks usually had mommy and daddy’s gold card in their back pocket. I call that roughing it, not! So, these pants will still be worn by those trying to get away with their down and out-starving-artist-wannabe-look. Money is nothing to be ashamed of, I just don’t have any.

Sartorially-minded ravers everywhere rejoice: your uniform for this fall has been decided. Naked & Famous recently dropped their unique Japanese selvedge creation on select Barneys New York and Barneys CO-OP locations.

See, the secret is in the phosphorescent coating which, when exposed to natural or artificial light (read: wearing them all day) absorbs and charges that light and then BAM! You step into your favorite lounge or dive bar looking like a walking glow stick. But, during work hours, these go-to worthy pair of straight leg 13.5 oz. raw indigo denims will keep you the incognito Clark Kent of clubland: safe until the sun sets…

Tenue de Nîmes Indigo-dyed Chuck Taylor All Star

Tenue de Nîmes is launching a collection of special, hand-dyed, natural indigo, customized Converse Chuck Taylor All Star shoes. They’re bangers indeed. Released during Amsterdam Fashion Week, the custom indigo colored Chuck Taylor All Star shoes will be issue in a run of 50 pairs.

“Tenue de Nîmes asked the legendary denim experts, the Manabe family from Okoyama in Japan, owners of the Momotaro brand and Rampuya dyeing factory” to produce the run. The results are outstanding. They deliver and drop on July 15. (selectism)

Naked & Famous Denim for Tenue de Nimes: Do you Have What it Takes to Fill these Pants Out?

by Accidental Bear

Canada’s Naked & Famous denim house goes head to head with AMS’s own Tenue de Nimes for a special 24 pair run of 13oz green rope-dyed repro denim. They have a vintage army feel to them. “Specific attention has been paid to matching the shade of green perfectly. The mid-green color proved a particular challenge since the dye is very unstable, but the hard work has paid off, giving us a beautiful and truly inspired color.” Well done fellas. Available online

Summers Here, Raid Grandpas Closet

by Accidental Bear

Save yourself a lot of $$ and raid your grandfathers closet for some awesome patterned golfing pants and cut then down for your summer look. Shorts in the park so far this year are at an all time high and by that I mean short! “Hipsters” are cutting off their skin tight jeans mid-thigh and them rolling them up to right below their bum. I will be keeping my shorts at a respectable right above the knee length this summer. Thank you and you’re welcome.

Insight Room Service Shorts

This mid-length pair of shorts from Insight features a raw hem edge that remind us of those Dickies cut-offs we made during our youth (shit, we still do it). But with the Insight pair, the pattern is more appropriate for wooing in your better half (or a new one). Would love to see Mourihno rocking these. Need Supply has them. Airy.

Lee 101 Logger Selvage Denim

by Accidental Bear

It is really close to impossible to keep up with what to do or not do when it comes to denim. For example, I thought you were not suppose to be caught dead in Lee jeans. Am I wrong? Apparently so. I am a true Levis man and basically have 2 denim rules to live by, NEVER acid wash or pleats.

Lee 101 Logger Selvage Denim

Selectism - lee-101-washed-denim-01

Like all things in menswear, washed denim never disappeared, it just stepped out of the limelight for a bit. We remember attempting to bring them back under the spotlight a few times but we usually get comments like ‘looks terrible’, ‘dad jeans’, ‘Obama wears these’. But this is shaping up to be the year that folks come round to the idea of washed denim. All we’ve gotta say is ‘what took you so long?’ (Crooked Tongues)

Levi’s Fall 2011 Collection

by Accidental Bear

Damn it Levi, I told you I’m broke. It’s like you are not even listening. Did you purposefully make your Fall 2011 collection smack me in the face amazing? Shall I just direct deposit my paycheck into your account? On an up note, this fall, I’m going to be strutting the sidewalks looking good.

Levi’s Fall 2011 Collection

curated mag - Levi's Fall 2011 Collection

This week Levi’s unveiled the Fall 2011 men’s collection which builds off both past collaborations and new innovations. A highlight, for us, is the introduction of the Commuter Cycling Series, a set of garments designed purposefully to meet the needs of the commuting cyclist. The denim in the Commuter Cycling Series is a slim cut 511 with utility waistband (set up perfectly for a u-lock) and the pant also employs a higher waste and 3m reflectivity.

The Fall 2011 collection also introduces new pieces from the ongoing Levi’s Workwear by Filson range and pushes the possiblities of Levi’s new program, Water<Less.

Full looks after the jump. Photographs by Phillip Angert.

Selectism.com, MY FASHION GO-TO

Fashion, just add beard!

Thank you www.selectism.com for being my fashion go-to!

Denim Demon ‘Skuvie’ Sweatshirt

Selectism - denim-demon-sweatshirt-01

How many sweatshirts does one man need? That’s the question we ask ourselves, and the answers usually ‘as many as humanly possible’. We like this one because of the chambray chest pocket and the side pocket, making it useful for those days when you’re travelling light. (C Store)

Our Legacy O Neck Jumper

Selectism - our-legacy-o-neck-01

Our Legacy have gone all aran on us with this jumper. While we do feel a little silly recommending a heavy knit when it’s nearly March, sometimes the weather doesn’t play along and warm up when it’s supposed to. And – if you’re in the UK – now is one of those times. (Our Legacy)

Levi’s Saddle for UNIK Bike, Fixerati & Brother Cycles

by Accidental Bear

RAD!

I never thought a bike seat could be sexy. In my over active porn fantasy mind I visualize denim on denim. This is one seat I’d ride bareback! WAIT!?!? WHAT!?

Levi’s Saddle for UNIK Bike, Fixerati & Brother Cycles

Levi’s works over their denim into the form of a saddle for this (one-off?) with UNIK Bike, Fixerati & Brother Cycles. “as produced in collaboration with the Belgian UNIK Bikes , who assembled the frame created by Brother Cycles and components Fixerati.” We like the saddle. Your denim will bleed onto your saddle anyways – so why not make it match. Then again, that stitching may not be comfortable for long. (f)

PRPS – Champions in the denim market

by Accidental Bear

HOLY MACARONI! Yes from head to toe.

PRPS Spring/Summer 2011

via http://www.selectism.com/

PRPS – one of the champions in the denim market – continue to refine their outerwear. Season to season, they continue to gain strength and position themselves father away from the singular denim game. Chambray and worked out tops, including a waist length leather jacket, offer contemporary and casual looks that are pretty accessible to most.

More looks after the click.
