After hearing about the Levi’s 505 denim by jeffstaple for quite a while, the jeans have finally been released. The jeans were created in conjunction with Staple’s 10th anniversary. Jeff picked his favorite Levi’s model, the 505, and re-created his own version of it. The denim features a aluminum back patch which is inspired by their 10th anniversary’s theme. And like all their 10th anniversary projects, an anagram (Levi’s/Lives) was created. The jeans are available now at Tab Device and Elesco in Tokyo and Reedspace in New York.
Here’s a look at California based Triumvir’s 2007 Holiday Collection. The Polka Dot Button Up is a tailored dress shirt featuring matte black rivets and Crack Skull embroidery. Polka-dots don’t usually connote elegance but the sophisticated fit gives the edginess a sense of maturity and the lean silhouette can be refined enough to wear in the evening. The latest drop also includes the Crack Slim Hood, and the Brush Them Off t-shirt, which marks part two of three in the official collaboration series with legendary 1950’s American pin-up artist, Gil Elvgren. Available soon at select Triumvir dealers.
The LD1000 Collection from Nike is based on the original LD1000 model, an innovative long distance sneaker in its heyday. This vintage treatment was meant to mimic the actual aging you’d expect from opening up a pair of brand new albeit 30 year old kicks. However, comfort has been updated with the use of Zoom Air in the heel, arguably one of Nike’s best cushioning systems. The collection also includes a t-shirt and matching hat set. Available at select Nike dealers now.

Puma has captured this concept in a series of Puma Clydes. Three different Clydes all feature distinguished uppers reminiscent of their poisonous counterparts. Set to release in 2008. Available soon at Apartment 16.
