DENIM: The Levi's® 505c

As those of you who know me are aware -- I have this thing with jeans. It's a benign addiction to be sure. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a sickness. However, if owning more jeans than I can comfortably wear in a year's time is an illness -- then I don’t want to be well.

CRAFT: Black & White - Twelve Quilts

The show, located at 40 Ludlow Street in Manhattan's Lower East Side celebrates the craft of quilting with the work of a dozen textile artists from around the United States and Canada. The artists were unified by the theme of black and white, and these visual constraints create a level of unity that affords the viewer a real opportunity to appreciate the various techniques, designs, and influences each quilter uses in their own work. 

GEAR: Unused Japan

If you're looking for a hat and money is no object, allow me to point you in the direction of UNUSED -- a flame Japanese clothing brand that is as excruciatingly cool as it is weird and hard to find.
