VIDEO | GILTMANUAL MINUTE : PESKO VS. WOOSTER

Screen shot 2011-11-26 at 8.46.56 AM

This week’s GiltManual Minute brings us the thrill of a cheeky sartorial dual: menswear legend and street style icon Nick Wooster vs. GiltMan Style Director and street style ‘rival’, Josh Peskowitz.  Two men. Two arsenals of choice threads.  One steezy survivor. Well, kind of. In the end (spoil alert!) they shake hands and talk suits … Continue reading

VIDEO | JAKE DAVIS TEST SHOTS | GLENN O’BRIEN

Screen shot 2011-11-25 at 11.04.23 AM

It’s a rainy Sunday and I forgot to post this on Friday. Even though it’s all over the internet and you’ve probably already seen it, it’s O’Brien. You can always stand to watch it another time. All I really need to say about this is: Jake Davis + Glenn O’Brien + the lining on that … Continue reading

VIDEO | GANT RUGGER PRE-FALL 2011

Screen shot 2011-11-26 at 9.13.51 AM

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Christopher Bastin, lead designer of Gant Rugger as well as Douglas Geller, Gant’s head of marketing, at Epaulet‘s Orchard Street shop. Over a delicious Cheerwine-induced buzz, we discussed karaoke, the joys of a Porkslap IPA and their excitement over releasing this pre-fall video.  After seeing it today, … Continue reading

VIDEO | SCHOTT NYC x WILLIAM YAN x WE ARE NOT PILGRIMS

As Friday comes to a close I strongly suggest you all take a moment to watch this short video featuring Greg Chapman, the creative director of Perfecto Brand by Schott NYC. It’s a short and sweet vignette that dreamily meanders the Schott Factory in Elizabeth New Jersey, following Chapman as he muses about his inspiration … Continue reading

VIDEO | GANT BY MICHAEL BASTIAN S/S 2011

So happy to see another piece by duo Tom Rand (of the Scout) and director Brennan Woods.  Last season, they teamed up with Gant to capture a  backstage view of Bastian’s collection, and I’m happy the partnership has continued into Fall. In my opinion, these two make some of the best videos on the internet, … Continue reading

VIDEO | TAILORING TRADITION THE NAPLES WAY

As the descendant of Italian tailors and seamstresses, this little vignette made my heart jump. Regardless of background, you should take a few minutes and watch it, for if there’s anyone in the world with a passion for tailoring, it’s classy men from Naples. Attenzione Italiani: questa piccola meraviglia è narrato tutto nella lingua più … Continue reading

VIDEO | LEVI’S SPEC BERKSHIRE BOYS

Love every second of this, especially the opening title shot.  Nice work (again) by Varsity Creative, who never fail to be awesome. More of their stuff here. – M

VIDEO | THE WINDMILL CLUB FALL 2010

Just a charming little video of mischief and merriment.  Also, the cyclist tie which pops up around the 27 second mark confirms that small bikes on slim ties is officially a trend this season.  Nicely done and perfect for a Fall Friday, Brooklyn Bridge and all. Check out The Windmill Club here.  – M (via The Pursuit Aesthetic)

VIDEO | GANT S/S 2011 "LIFE LIKE A FILM"

Another fantastic video by the producer/director duo, Tom Rand and Brennan Stasiewicz. You might know them from the craftsmanship video series over at The Scout. This time they take us backstage for the Gant by Michael Bastian presentation in NYC. The video captured the whimsical, charming, and I’d say, best side of the collection, which is quickly shaping up … Continue reading

VIDEO | VIBERG BOOT

I recently stumbled upon this video about the Viberg Boot company produced by Inventory Magazine’s “Inventory Films”. It is about a year old so I’m surprised I haven’t seen more coverage, but, as one would expect from Inventory, it is still a beautifully shot piece about a company with an authentic past.  Inventory’s description does … Continue reading
