Fjällräven.

In the 1950’s, 14 year-old Åke Nordin from Örnsköldsvik in Northern Sweden spent more time outdoors than indoors. After many long treks in the mountains, Åke decided the backpacks at the time were unsatisfactory and took matters into his own hands by building a wooden frame. This evenly distributed weight across his back so the pack did not end up uneven, pear-shaped, and uncomfortable. It also meant he could carry more weight with ease. Åke’s innovation quickly caught on and in 1960 Fjällräven became the first to commercially make and distribute framed backpacks. 

Fjällräven means Arctic Fox in Swedish, honoring the small and highly adaptable predator that lives in the Swedish mountains under the harshest conditions.

From the small town of Örnsköldsvik, Fjällräven has now expanded to every corner in the world. The fundamental ideas remain the same; provide functional, durable, and timeless equipment to make the outdoors more enjoyable for all. We continue to find smart, innovative solutions to make every adventure an unforgettable one.


I guess the point I'm trying to make is, this company is extremely cool, and I don't just say that because it's made in Sweden where it's ridiculously cold. It's just cool. Other words I'd use to describe this brand would be: dope, rad, fresh, neat, awesome, necessary, in my closet. Check out some of their stuff below.











 

Am i right or am i right? Stop by their website here, or find a Nordstrom or other authorized distributor and gear up for fall.

abc's of men's fashion - 60. 

Trench

"There was time when a new trenchcoat could get you killed. Although developed before WW1, the classic gabardine trenchcoat, with its D-rings (for maps cases, medals and swords, if required), belt, epaulettes, sleeve straps,  storm pockets and wool lining, came into its own in the war. It was not official issue – officers ordered their own from the Army & Navy catalogue or bought them at Simpson’s or from the various manufacturers’ West End stores. The problem was, German snipers had been told to save their bullets for officers. So the higher ranks of British army slowly discarded any obvious signifiers of rank when at the front, ditching the swagger stick and often their revolver. However, many a new, young subaltern, perhaps promoted from the ranks (‘a temporary gentleman’), having spent a good few pounds on a dashing new khaki trenchcoat, kept that on. Bang. No wonder the average life of a junior officer was just six weeks.

By the mid-WW2, the trenchcoat had become a signifier not of army rank but of moral ambiguity, mainly thanks to Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, whose Rick Blaine favoured a particularly crumpled, un-military version. The trenchcoat soon became the preserve of men who walked on the shadier side of the street." - hardy Amies

Over time, the Trench coat became less about image and more about function--used as an over layer on top of a suit in rain or cold weather along with the peacoat. this became the go-to overcoat for menswear. Also used as a disguise when the ninja turtles wanted to walk around new york city without being seen... just saying.

Then it disappeared for a number of years.

As the dapper gentleman makes his timeless return into style, the trench coat has begins to creep back into the picture, and it's fantastic.

This thing is no joke. It's crazy light--weighing only 11.46 ounces--and still holds up to tough conditions. the name FuseForm comes from the the process innovated by the north face of fusing strong nylon yarns at the shoulders and breathable polyester yarns through the torso for targeted abrasion resistance.

h&m modern essentials by david beckham - car coat.

i'm going to start with saying i didn't even want to buy this jacket.

i walked into h&m because i was at the mall and saw the jacket. i tried it on out of curiosity and that's when it was all over. the jacket fits great and looks great on too. needless to say, i had to buy it. 

i highly suggest you look at the modern essentials collection that h&m and david beckham created. it's a well put together collection of basics that look great and fit great too.

head into an h&m and put them on your body. if don't have that luxury then shop the modern essentials collection online here

stampd strapped bomber

To be honest, I have no business wearing this kind of jacket. Nothing about my style says "streets" or "thuglife" or "street cred".  But I feel like this is right in Taylor's wheelhouse, and I love the look of it. Do the straps do anything? I dunno, probably not. Looks cool though. Just because I can't wear it, doesn't mean I can't like it. The Stampd Strapped Bomber Jacket.

season of wool.

I love warm weather. I love a cool breeze on a hot day. I love spring showers and fall chills. And as much as everyone supposedly hates winter, I love it and I'm sad to see it go. As winter comes to an end, I say goodbye to the thick coats, wool sweaters, and comfy scarves, and I must say, it's tough. I'll miss you winter coat. I'll miss you infinity scarf, I'll miss you Christmas sweater. But as seasons change, so do appropriate layers. And so with that we bid you adieu.
