Arctic Monkeys are out, ARCTIC FOXES are in!









Today Swedish outdoor pioneer Fjallraven (Arctic Fox) opens up their first ever store in the US.
Classic stuff, don't miss it!
I met Andrea & Co the other day in NYC, have high hopes to get some Gant Rugger shirts in there as well!
Mott street is now officially as hot as the enchiladas at Café Habana around the corner.

I used to carry my books to school in their classic "Kånken" rucksack 1979-82.
1982 I did what everybody else did where I grew up in Stockholm, changed to a (fucking ugly) Salomon backpack.
Kånken was all of a sudden concidered to be the "commie" backpack and all of a sudden we started picking on anyone with a "kånken".

Conclusion?
Kids are mean little bastards, and, they have no clue what so ever about aesthetics, that's for sure.

Go Fjällräven, and good luck!!

Billy Kirk offices..I think I want to live there.
Picture (not very surprisingly) from www.acontinuouslean.com.


"Big Document" by Saul Steinberg. Just a lot of fake signs, seals and mumbo jumbo wording. Genious.





Looks like a draft of the Declaration of Indepence.
Perhaps Jefferson & Co where downing a quart of whisky and went:
"Seriously, dudes, shouldn't we like write somethin' that looks really profound? I mean we totally sidestepped those teasippin fairies and nicked the entire country. You know, just so it looks like we've put some effort behind it?
What was it you said after you got your divorce Thomas? Somthing like "Finally Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happyness",
That's fuckin genious man, write it down"

Buthcer of Blue / Cool store in Holland
