Owner Operator is a line we’ve featured before on the blauge, NYC designed and produced. This summer 2013 collection presentation kills it, nothing quite like shredding the green in shorts and a button-up. As always everything from the brand is available online, and we encourage you to get rad with your credit card.

Supreme x The North Face Spring/Summer 2013

Supreme has been the subject of much internet chatter lately regarding the label’s mainstreaming and what it means for streetwear (read this excellent Four Pins article for reference). Regardless of how you feel about the NYC staple the North Face collaborations are always fire and this s/s 2013 offering is no different: I’ll take the grey jackets without a second thought, and the backpack. The pricepoint may be what makes the decision for most people but there is really no going wrong with this ongoing partnership.

Here it is, the most structured and anticipated seasonal lookbook release in streetwear, ya boys from ‘Preme. Always stronger in fall/winter but damn if this collection isn’t the truth: tons of classic NYC ish to empty the bank account, my highlights being the Schott collabs, the basketball warmup, the tie-dye pullover and the script New Era. Great styling as always, but especially on point for this season. Supreme, the kids can debate ’em until they’re blue in the face, but they’ll still be doing the damn thing better than most (if not all), never slacking. Couple more styles after the jump.

NYC labelĀ Feltraiger just gave the Beast a look at their current f/w 12/13 collection entitled ‘Garage Rat,’ a solid blend of straight-ahead menswear and more motorcycle/mechanic styles. Not too much to overanalyze here, just 5 good looks from a quality brand.

Hard livin for a blauger this time of year: not a lot of collections being released, and churning over such eternal questions as ‘to year-end list or to not year-end list?’ (advance disclaimer: feeling a little lazy this year). All that said here’s the s/s 2013 lookbook from Engineered Garments, the usual warm weather garden wedding swag from the JP/NYC label. More quality and originality from an always reliable label, and more after the break.

Owner Operator is a NYC-based label making technical apparel for cold weather adventures, likely in the mountains. All their outerwear is made in NYC, with other pieces from the collection being produced throughout the USA as well. Classic (understated) styling across the board here, and the packs and hats are especially great: get me that waxed cotton cap and we’re hella cool. Definitely a brand to watch, and everything is available for purchase online.
