Patrik Ervell Fall/Winter 2010

Here is a unique look at Patrik Ervell’s fall/winter 2010 collection, as captured by the Jak & Jil Blog. The photos are amazing, catching the mood of the collection so well. The images show the silhouettes of the clothes themselves, with the angle of the shots and the lighting playing off the transparency seen through out the collection itself. You can check the full line here but I think this is a great way for it to be viewed. More looks after the jump…

Idol Radec Fall 2010

One of the most entirely wearable labels going, Idol Radec‘s fall 2010 collection displays the kind malleable masculine styling that looks good on almost any guy. Super basic palate, cuts, and material choices, and I love the classicism and simplicity of the styling.. I would wear any of the looks presented here. This collection is a huge win for me, and I would love to see more of this (done properly) in menswear. Click through for the complete lookbook, and thanks to The Fashionisto for the images.

GQ’s Dress Shirt Primer

GQ recently published this online slideshow on how to pick out the best dress shirt for your needs, staring Canadian rapper Drake. As /85 and I work together in a mens store where we do this kind of stuff all day every day, I was really stoked to not only see GQ cover all the bases, but actually do it 100% correct… I can only dream that every guy would read something like this before stepping foot in the shop. Dress clothes can be the absolute easiest default in a man’s wardrobe, but you need to know how to do it right… and having perfectly fitted shirts (and tie pairings) helps a ton. Click though for the full rundown.

It’s been an amazing couple weeks for techno releases: first, Pantha du Prince unveiled his much-anticipated third LP, entitled ‘Black Noise,’ and it’s the beautiful, spacial trip through layers of bass, noise, bells, wood blocks, etc that we expected from the German savant. Also, his former Dial label boss Pawel finally released his long-awaited self-titled debut solo LP, and the results definitely exceed my expectations. Taking the deep romantic sound of Lawrence and Pantha and adding a slightly more thumping tech edge during certain parts of the album, Pawel has created a true standout in the already much-vaunted Dial catalogue. Above are my two favorite cuts from their respective LPs, with ‘A Nomads Retreat’ by Pantha, and ‘Kramnik’ by Pawel. Such a treat to listen to music of this calibre, with masterfully crafted soundscapes shaped through subtle progressions… looks like 2010 is going to be another great year for electronic music. You can purchase both albums in high quality on Beatport.

They pay homage to the likes of Miles Davis, Nat ‘King’ Cole, and  Huey P. Newton, taking inspiration from these great individuals and mixing in their own personal style attributes. Along with the editorial they have also put together a behind the scenes video to go along with it. keep reading for both the video and the shoot…

Feeling It: Scott Pommier Photography

Scott Pommier is a photographer that I have been watching for a couple years now: my friend Curtis put me on to him a while ago, and ever since then I have been a huge fan. Scott documents his travels through the motorcycle and  skateboarding cultures, spending a good majority of his time in Vancouver as well as all over the west coast. He shoots on 35mm giving his photos a nostalgic feel, capturing his subject matter in a very natural manner, each shot makes you feel as though you were there. Scott Pommier is one of my favorite photographers for so many reasons, keep reading to see for yourself why, and check out his new website for the rest of his work…

Brixton Spring/Summer 2010 Lookbook

Brixton is a line I appreciate based on the simplicity of their aesthetic; that California cool, which is an intangible vibe that can’t really be faked. Every season the line come with a solid collection of basic tops and hats, and their presentation is always top notch. I really enjoy the lookbook for spring/summer 2010, as they showcase the product with the skate/motorcycle/art culture aspects that the line is centred around, and seems to be true to. I definitely need to cop a snapback for summer hangin’… keep reading for more.
