LRG, or Lifted Research Group, describes itself as ”underground inventive, overground effective.” For Fall/Winter 2012, the lifestyle label’s inaugural footwear collection takes the slogan to heart, encompassing outdoor, athletic, and casual inspirations for a selection of functional hybrids and high-end, reinterpreted takes on classics. Drawing upon a street aesthetic as the primary filter for their silhouettes, the range includes high-tops, chukkas and hiking boots styles crafted in materials as diverse as Nappa leather, ballistic nylon and camouflage canvas. Included among the standouts are the Iroko, a 6” hiker featuring Prime power suede and Nappa leather uppers, along with a heel stabilizer and XL padding; and the Alder, a boot/chukka mashup in full-grain nubuck and leather. Look for the LRG Fall/Winter 2012 now at select retailers and their online store.

PROCESS: The Making of a New Era 59FIFTY

With almost a century of experience in hat making, New Era has been at the forefront in manufacturing some of the world’s most celebrated caps to date. Improving on its products year after year while setting industry benchmarks, New Era has become a household name. Known throughout the professional sports realm, whether it be the MLB, NBA or NHL, New Era’s versatile 59FIFTY cap — also known as the fitted — has graced the heads of athletes and celebrities alike and has garnered attention for its work with Marvel Comics, DC Comics, and a host of heavy streetwear brands. Despite its simplicity of design and relatively unchanged silhouette, a surprising amount of work goes into the crafting of each cap. In this PROCESS we take closer look into the meticulous 22-step journey that a single 59FIFTY cap must go through from raw material to finished product — a process that utilizes the eyes and hands of 22 dedicated and loyal employees who together share a single dedication to quality and craftsmanship.
