Mark McNairy, creative director of J. Press and shoe designer of Mark McNairy New Amsterdam, will be taking over for Daiki Suzuki at Woolrich Woolen Mills. This is amazing news for menswear as a Mark designs classic men's pieces but adds interesting, creative twists to them. If you're not familiar with his work, check below for more photos of his shoe line.

Derrick Holt has designed menus and logos for restaurants such as Marlow & Sons, Lodge, Bonita, and my personal fave, Pies 'n Thighs. Check out more of his work below.
On May 20, Supreme releases two sunglass styles The Loc and The Dekker. Both frames are hand-crafted in Japan and come in a couple colorways. I'm glad to see Supreme re-issued the Locs from last Spring. They sold out pretty fast, and now you have another chance to cop 'em.

I'm fairly new to the whole hiking/outdoorsy thing. I play soccer and go on long bike rides, but I don't really have any gear for true trekking. I once did the 5 borough bike ride in jeans for chrissakes! I know that Outlier Tailored Performance is traditionally made for bike riding, but I feel that the 60/30 Khakis would be perfect for a hike up Bear Mountain as well as a long ride to the Palisades. The pants come in khaki and olive.
With Shazam providing no help, I had to wait to find out the song was called Go Outside by Cults. They are a 2 piece, guy/girl group from NYC. It's got a great sing-along feel with heavy reverbed vocals and a motown-like bass line.
The song is perfect for a sunny day, or as I told Alice via Christine, it's perfect private villa music.

Here's a new track from Seattle weirdo rap group Shabazz Places with Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler from Digable Planets. He gets weird and dark on this track. I mean check out the name of the song...32 Leaves Dipped in Blackness Making Clouds Forming Altered Carbon?!?!?!

Sample sales are always a crap shoot. But last season's Opening Ceremony sample sale was pretty huge with tons of clothes from Band of Outsiders, Acne, Opening Ceremony, Pendleton, Loden Dager, and Nike Sportswear. It's always worth checking out and on the last day, everything gets marked down even more.
May 13-16, Thurs-Sat 11-8, Sun 12-7, 33 Howard Street (Between Lafayette and Broadway)
