Happy Hanukka.

Check out rippedbackpocket.tumblr.com instead.

Feels like this page is slowly dying. (as if anyone gave a hoot)

It's been fun.

Score!


Baking Table.
French, old as shit, and even more expensive.
Now all we need is a bigger kitchen.
(That'll be cheap too)
Shiver me timbers and call me Nancy.
Bake-off!

The Beatles
Digitally remastered









So, the Beatles are on Itunes.
Good for them, except the 70's silhoutte didn't do anyone a favour and no one
thought about remastering that part..unfair if you ask me.

A slimmer cut to the slacks, a tad bit lower waist on the jeans and a haircut.
Voila.
Now, you're ready for Itunes.

(Ringo and John - hopeless)

Mittens rule I tells you!




Well, at least these mittens wouldn't even piss on a pair of gloves teeth if their gum was on fire, that's how bad ass these mittens are.

(Behind the scenes shot from AW2010 shoot a.k.a The Cape Cod Sessions)

I rest my case, like foe shizzle.

Got another 20 laying around? Then I would suggest you get one of these.

BAD TASTE X 2


Hell froze over last week when I went to Daphne's in Stockholm.
Christian Audigier made wine.


Apart from this slip, Daphne's is a very nice addition to our capitol.
A French Bistro for regular (wealthy) folks who enjoys a good meal.

I'm biased, I've known Daphne since we where 12. He allows me into his kitchen to whip up a sauce bearnaise from scratch at 2 am in the morning, drunk as a monkey.

Sadly, fashion will never be as rock'n roll as cooking.

1930's Filson


Union Made label inside the back pocket of a 1930's Filson brown duck canvas pant.

I'd say.
MADE IN THE USA
(ALL of it please)

Tell me there's at least one weaver in the US still doing shirtings?

FROM THE ARCHIVES
YALE


Late 60's in front of "Beinecke Rare books and Manuscript Library" at Yale.
The front guy is sporting Gants famous "The Woolster" at the time it was 23 buckaroos.

Sweetness!
