As I mentioned earlier this week, Shinola, A Continuous Lean, and myself will be at Steven Alan this Saturday celebrating Steven Alan’s 20 years of business. We’ll also be taking a peek at Shinola’s Black Blizzard Chronograph, an item I’m particularly eager to see. The Black Blizzard is inspired by the Dust Bowl of the 1930s, and more importantly the homesteaders that weathered the storm. Shinola’s first titanium watch is a tribute to America’s spirit and resilience against trials and tribulations. Only fitting for a ambitious brand that has turned our eyes and ears back to one of America’s most enduring cities, Detroit. To wet your appetites, I’m posting the teaser video here. If you want to see it in person before its November release, don’t forget to come by Steven Alan at 172 Newbury Street this Saturday, October 18th, from 2-4pm.

Japanese clothing line Noun has branched out into handbags under the name of Bag’n’Noun. Noun’s designer Takeshi Ozawa takes inspiration from European workwear for his apparel. For his handbags he wanted to create pieces that were just fun to carry versus being too utilitarian. With durable materials in vibrant hues and only the necessary amount of pockets and gizmoos, these bags are easy and, just as Takeshi plotted, fun to carry. The price points are something to smile about too with most pieces coming in under roughly $150. I’m partial to the Canvas Tool Bag #11 in yellow with teal handles and shoulder straps. Head over to Steven Alan to pick one up.
It’s pretty obvious that I’m on a summer anticipation kick with my posts lately and this one is no different. When it comes to picking out shirts in the warmer months, there are a few patterns that are quintessential. Stripes being one of them. Horizontal, vertical, colorful, tonal, you name it and this year’s S/S collections have got it. Above are some of my favorites, and it’s pretty evident I’m partial to stripes in blue and white.
