Kind of misleading name, but it sounds..masculine.
"Deepfried pigs skin" would have been more accurate.
But only to the point that is actually does taste like pig skin. (which it is, hence the taste)

But, the fact that it came freshly done, still blistering hot, wrapped in a small cellophane bag with this label
stapled to it totally made up for the utter horror it contained,
I devoured them, while thinking: Man, packaging really is everything, I'm such a tourist sometimes.

At the next table, the disgusted faces on the Lower East Side blog-mafia seem to be thinking:
"What a bunch of fucking tourists", while ordering another micro brewery Weissbier they don't even like.

I heart NYC

Spalding Schmalding..

1930-40's Spalding reverse weave.
Didn't even try to win this one..
Check out that front / back thing going on, nice..

Porkslap Imposter!

"Smoked Belly" at The Breslin / Ace Hotel. (which I had)

Serves two, it said on the menu. (which I stole)

Serves an army, if you ask me.
Good stuff.

buying King Magazine.

Rasmus Wingardh / Dyslectic Super Hero Extraordinaire!


welcome to the fucked up head of Rasmus Wingårdh. This blogg is actually a way for me to sort out the process of creating a collection and a way to sort about with whatever stuff i find inspiring. Now, i know that some of you might be shocked by the content, but i don´t really care about that, its my blogg and i do what i want to do with it. So fucking deal with it!

on that note,… please enjoy all the future posts.

Now scoot over to my dear friend Rasmus' seriously profound, insightful, funny and completely dyslctic blog at:
US Royalty / Every Summer

This version is more addictive than crack.
You'll be seeing another way cool video for this song, very soon...
We just need to get our shit together and crack open the gant rugger website..

Video from
In lack of better things to upload / Elton before he completely lost it.

This One's For You Broheim!

My brother moved to L.A couple of months back to start up the LA
branch of his production company STO-CPH.
Last week, they sold their first pilot, to ABC!

God knows he's put in a shitload of blood, sweat and tears into that
godforsaken business they
call showbusinnes. Damn proud of him!

My guestimation is he'll be running LA-LA land in a few years.
Then we can crash an Oscars party together. An event that's long
overdue according to me.

Hat's off bro, tribute label in your honor.

Gimme Head, Parte Deux.

Christies was about to put this Skull & Bones ballot box up or auction
last friday.
Along with it was a ledger, containing hundreds of names of "Bonesmen".
But...they got cold feet and withdrew the object.
Needless to point out there are obvious signs of foul play in this
evil scheme.
There's a curse, a murdered proffesor, a really sexy babe and at least
2 ex presidents involved in this.
I guaran-fuckin-tee it.
Dan Brown, are you listening!!? Another billion dolares are waiting
for you.

Rule number one / Tough season?

Note to self, do not put own name on wastebin.

Unless you're looking for that Charles Bukowski vibe...

Second note to self, do put own name on waste bin, pay blog to cover it to get bad-ass rep.

Anyone who's into pork/meat/duckfat/grease and head cheese should try following threeday dinner combo: 
Also known as  "NYC Pork Bonanza", a.k.a "Eat your heart out"

 The Spotted Pig, The Breslin and Highlander. 
If you're ballsy you do the Dumont Burger in brooklyn for lunch in between, and steal a menu at each place. Pro's only.

I'm amazed how the love of food always exceeds the love of my own health.
Even more amazing, you start any meal with half a dozen oysters, a glass of Bollinger and have a smoke in between, 
you can take whatever pork they throw your way.

Ikat?/ Ikat!

Ikat patterns from one of the vintage swatchbooks I've got at home.
Ca 1920's
I just don't know.
As a pattern, mos def!
I mean look at the colors, the grain in the fabric and the slubeffects
one only see in handwoven desklooms, unperfected beauty, for sure.
The way the colors interact is kind of fantastic, a full

It's like Talking Heads, most people I know hate their music, and then
there's the few "intellectuals that gets it".
- "Dude, Pshyco Killer is the like best song ever man!!!" they tell
(Personally I hold ANYTHING by Journey closer to heart)

I'll stand by, looking from a far and see how this goes down..

What do you think dear readers. Is Ikat an "OCBD killer" come next

- A sub zero Chardonnay. That's what you get for stepping outside for a smoke come January in Sweden.
(Apart from lung cancer, Swedish tobacco should have warnings about hypothermia..)

- The Moose-sign outside Hotel Lydmar needs a Kleenex.

- As metrosexual as it may sound, frost on's really, really pretty.

First receipt of 2010.

Keepin up appearances in Italy over new years, me and the wifey.
Sans kids. We rock.

(OK, it's mostly for sandwiches on new years day. Bit at least it
looks like a Pete Dogherty-order!)

Why did....Oh, that looks nice too. Gotta get me one of THOSE as well. 
That's totally my size! Click!!
1968 submariner to go with the 506XX jacket? Or that shawl collar naval indigo dream..?
Why not? I deserve it, I deserve it all.

I wish...

50's chucks.
Red Label..
As rare as they come.

I have a box.Or two.

The shoes are even nicer..

Click me, I'm a wicked link.

Today we say grace to the house of Pomerol (and MD70), break open a bottle of Chateau Pétrus and wash down our Linguini fresca al tartufo bianco. 

We're on!

Yes you nimwit, I know white truffle season is over, but I keep mine in the fridge, rapped in some tissue paper in a sealed box with rice. This way, you'll be ok until february if your stash (and wallet) is big enough.
If you're clever, you'll also store a couple of eggs in the same box. 
Give it a week. (The eggs will soak up the aroma from the truffles) 
Now, make scrambled eggs.
Good enough to make you jizz in your pants.

David, you're the jizz in mine.

Told you the Cape Cod Sessions would become a classic.

"Thou hast mail"

Postal delivery bag, World War Numero Uno.
Ebay, 25 buckaroos.
(Bad news or not, at least it was beautiful)

Porn for Nerds / OCBD Heaven.

Let's face it, if you understand the meaning of OCBD, you're a nerd.
TNSIL ya'll.

Meanwhile, in Brogues..

The only one to endure the AW2010 shoot wearing brogues.
The other sissys (me) was in full thermal and Sorels.
His reason for having such well clad feet being:
"Well, if you can't kill it in a pair of decent shoes, whats the point?"
He of course trashed the bike later on, needless to say in a very brittish, classy way.
When I grow up, I want to be like Tom.

The Cape Cod Sessions

Hypothermically Speaking

Guy Aroch's crew at work.
Now known in the fashion industry as "The Cape Cod Sessions" the AW2010 shoot was a cold, harsh one.
Just the way we like it.

Scott Hill, visual merch extraordinaire and finder of all things pretty, just opened up "Old Village Hall" on 170 East 2nd St. You all needs to go there, now.

The third thing Scott ever said to me was: "I just wanna rock out dude"

When I grow up, I wanna be Scott Hill.

The US Marine Corps cliché "Adapt, Adjust & Overcome" all of a sudden
