Vancouver Island’s Sitka has released their take on the classic ‘Hobo Knife’ made by USA knife maker CaseXX. To celebrate the release of the Hobo knife they have put together this great photo series and video to present the knife in all its glory; train yard lurking, fire warming and bean eating goodness.
“Some go where the wind takes them. Some push back against the breeze with all their might. Some, like the hobo, realizing that from strong winds grow strong trees, choose which gusts to jump aboard and which to let pass by.
Hobos were people who, in the face of economic hardship, took to trains in search of work and a living wage. What began as a means to survival became a way of life for some, and continues to this day.
The Hobo Knife is a tool to aid you on the road. With a removable knife, spoon and fork (complete with bottle opener), this knife has everything you need for life on the road or rails.
The Hobo Knife is a collaborative effort between Sitka and CaseXX, producing a USA-made, custom, one-of-a-kind, utility style knife. The Hobo knife features custom engraved Sitka ‘Hoboglyphs’ on the blade and Sitka branding on the oak handle.”
I am a bit biased on this one as I did the artwork for the knife but as a knife collector and lover myself this is a win/win for me. Head over to Sitka to grab yourself a Hobo and live the life…
Been waiting on a set of seasonal looks from Narifuri for too long now, so it’s time to showcase their new products for s/s 13 via bike-centric retailer Blue Lug‘s own in-house shoot. The Disney jersey collab is really on point and the jackets look great as always: Narifuri is always 100, check the archives for proof.
Here is a quick look at the latest seasonal lookbook from retailer Tres Bien. The shop has picked some highlight styles and pieces to showcase for the summer months. Playful presentation as usual from Tres Bien, with the model styled out in front of a whiteboard with descriptions of the outfits written on it, simple yet effective. A great mix of looks and styles seen here, with a bit more pop of colour for the summertime.
Copenhagen’s Rascals give the first look at their a/w collection here with this vid entitled Awkward Winter, and that about sums it up. Love the grade 9 class school photo backdrop against the pieces, looking 90’s spacey fresh for a Scandinavian fall. Rascals is a new favourite around here, stoked to see a full lookbook for the season.
Another solid Japanese collection for the morning, this from Varde77 and their upcoming autumn/winter 2013 collection. This is one really solid looking line, good mix of rugged work styles and some more refined looks as well, I especially like the fit and cuts, slightly more relaxed which I am really into these days. Also really like the simple presentation, rooftop action, just that easy.
We have been pretty damn consistent over the last while featuring the newest from Japanese label Glamb. Here is their latest lookbook for the summer 2013 season, featuring the collections pieces for the warmer months. As always presentation is on point and the looks are very well styled, another hit from the label.
