In our grand tradition of keeping you up to date on the international men’s shop scene, we’ve scoured the globe for the newest openings in your regular haunts—you know, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, the usual. Because you never know when you’re going to need a new pair of swim trunks en route to Bali.
As enthusiasts of a well-tailored lifestyle, our quest for noteworthy handsomeness knows no bounds. We’ve trekked the farthest reaches; from Ibiza to London to Aoyama and back to bring you our next installment of the international store report. Think Savile Row tailoring, Japanese surf style and American heritage with some Hong Kong-ese topspin.
And unlike most shop-in-shop situations, you don’t actually have to make it to SF’s Mission District to get your hands on this stuff. Because it’s all online for the taking. Makr’s got their signature leather-y and canvas-y handsomeness on display, but the real standouts are the items they’ve coated in a powder green that’s unique to the capsule collection.
When we took you inside the NYC shop founded by two Internet-famous menswear pals, it was a feast for the eyes—full of hard-to-find Italian blazers and so on. But the stuff was still mostly unattainable for anyone who couldn’t make it to SoHo. And for a couple of guys who made their bones in the online world of menswear, it left a large portion of Tumblr wondering when CSC would embrace their hashtaggy roots. Now, thanks to their triumphant return to the Internet, the #menswear masses can finally get their hands on all that L.B.M., Bastian and in-house suiting they’ve been craving from afar.
To even the most hardscrabble gentleman of style, online shopping can be unsettling—like rowing in a vast ocean filled with “slim-fit" shirts, cryptic neck-to-sleeve ratios and hard-to-translate European conversions that might end up hanging like burlap sacks from your shoulders.
But we’re here to tell you that with a little preparation and study, there’s no reason to be scared of filling your cart with all that Italian linen and Scottish tweed that’s been tempting you from afar for so long.
For those of you lucky enough to be in New York City this weekend, we have some really, really ridiculously good-looking news.
Our comrades-in-style over at UrbanDaddy are hosting a two-day, whiskey-infused extravaganza of dapperness called the Vault on Saturday and Sunday in SoHo (70 Wooster St, to be exact).
In said Vault will be untold wonders of menswear from the likes of Michael Bastian, Slowear, Oliver Spencer, Richard James, Barker Black and more, at unheard-of prices—camelhair chesterfields from MB, gray hopsack suits from Richard James Savile Row, the coveted Incotex pants line from Slowear...
As with any good celebration of handsomeness, the scotch will be flowing freely. And if you happen to be in the giving mood, they’ve also set up complimentary on-site gift wrapping. (Just remember to act surprised when you open them later.)
The Pop Up Flea has become the stuff of #menswear legend. And it’s back for its fifth installment—but you’d be mistaken to think they’re still doing the same old stuff. This one is going to be even bigger and even better. (Trust us, we know a guy.)
If you’ve never heard of the PUF (though we highly doubt that, if you’re reading Kempt), imagine all of your favorite bloggerly things on the Internet materialized in one place: knobby wooden posts you can actually touch, your favorite shoemaker in the flesh, the smell of motor oil and vintage tweed in the air... The whole thing was conceived by Michael “ACL” Williams and our very own editorial director, Randy Goldberg, who has so graciously allowed us to pick his brain on what to expect from the three-day extravaganza that kicks off at 3pm tomorrow at NYC’s ROOT (Drive-In) studios. (And show you a few sneak peeks.)
