It's all Cricket.

Fashiontale magazine is all cricket, you already know that.

Well, Carl-Axel Wahlström who's running FTM pretty much wrote the rules on cricket.

So when he calls and says he's doing a story, based on this blog (?)
and that he wants me to style it (?) you kind of jump at it, full on!
Even if you're scared shitless, you jump.

I'm glad I did.

One for the archives..

For some reason, I don't think this Gant Rugger tee ever made it to production.

I know, "Fun tee's" are for dweebs and people who shop at A&F.
(Read: European tourists and "not so rich white folks")

- Aha, so then it's like a "Love all, Serve all" kind of thing?

- Yes, it's got a sublime philanthropic aspect to it.

- No, it doesn't. Dweeb, you're just a dweeb who loves fun tee's.

- Yeah, sorry.

I gave up at 300 bucks, ended at 420 (wtf?)
With that said, here's the pictures of what could have, and should have, been mine.
Bill Gates, I told you, stop collecting Holubar already, fucker.

Swedish Designer of The Year.

Nice title, won it yesterday by the way.

It's almost as sweet as this 1920's Levi pin I scored at Ebay.
For those of you in the know, check the back of the pin..
"Bastian Bros"(!)

Fall Winter 2010

It's starting to hit the stores!
Vintage Swedish Bike-o-rama.

Once upon a time, bike ads where proper, and to the point.
(Needless to say, I had a Crescent)

Mom & Dad

Sometimes you don't have to go very far to find inspiration.
Screw paying a gazillion bucks for rare ebay findings, sifting through endless piles of shitty rags and flipping through booooring fashion magazines.
Sometimes you just stumble upon your parents honeymoon album and find it to be inspiration for an entire collection.
I've seen it a hundred times before, I just saw it in a new light, from a new angle.
Colors, fit, it's all perfection.

I'd say so.
This is as wicked as they come, and they don't come around often.
(That neck label is one of the prettiest I've ever seen)

Högmarsö Varv

Besides a great restaurant, this gem in the archipelago
is one of few still functioning shipyards in Sweden.
The vibe is amazing, and the stuff that's just lying around is even better..
