this is probably the best looking jacket i have ever seen. and it belongs to GQ’s style guy, the legendary glenn o’brien.
this schott perfecto leather motorcycle jacket has been with o’brien since the 70’s as you can tell from the rough frayed edges, supple rich aged leather, and all its worn perfection.
now you must be thinking what makes this specific jacket better than all the rest?
its that drawn on crown in the back. that little piece of artwork is what separates this jacket from all the rest, that little piece of artwork is what makes this jacket the most bad ass leather jacket in all the land.
that crown was not just a doodle o’brien or someone drew on but it was drawn on by the late great new york city artist and o’briens close friend jean-michel basquiat. the crown was basquiats signature, a symbol of their friendship.
this jacket has seen and been through it all. this jacket is a symbol of the free spirit that encompasses us all that allows us to live and dream. and with his signature crown drawn on by the late jean-michel basquiat himself, all these things makes this jacket the most bad ass leather jacket in all the land… the end.
the new york city based skateboarding/clothing brand supreme has continued to roll out their products for the spring summer 2014 season.
these tea tree oil toothpicks retail for around $20-30.
i guess regular plain old toothpicks just aint cutting it anymore. you know what they say, you aint a hypebeast til you pick like one. HA
maison martin margiela and converse has come together to create a new footwear collection for Spring/Summer 2014.
theyve chosen the chuck taylor all-star 70’s hi and the jack purcell ox as their sneaker of choice to use in this collection. each shoe is painted in MMM’s iconic white paint. with normal wear, the paint is designed to gradually flake, crack off and reveal the solid color leather uppers. the chucks will reveal a amber glow and true navy upper, while the jack purcells will uncover a azure blue and biking red upper.
priced at $250, they have been available since may 23 at maison martin margiela stores and select converse stores.
these are one of the few select pair of sneakers i am obsessed with at the very moment, obsessed.
since high school… thankful to have them in my life. #tbt #nyc #blessed
