Suitsupply Autumn/Winter 2014 Advertising Campaign

By on Sep 1, 2014

Suitsupply kicks off the Fall/Winter 2014 season with a new campaign celebrating individuality. Portraying a sharply dressed individual juxtaposed against backdrops of all kinds of beautiful uniformity, it is a depiction of Suitsupply’s manifesto ‘don’t fit in, but get your own perfect fit’. The quintessence of the radical, the Fall/Winter 2014 collection breaks away from norms and conventions. “We’ve taken cues from the rebels, loners and outcasts of style & history to create a collection that’s distinctive and nonconformist.” says CEO & founder Fokke de Jong. The result is an experimental narrative of bold and exceptional personality. Through the lens of classic Italian tailoring, the collection is infused with contemporary trimmings. The emphasis is on luxurious fabrics defined by exquisite craftsmanship – such as cashmere and baby alpaca blends – and a color palette that...

2015 Indian Scout Motorcycle

By on Aug 14, 2014

The Indian motorcycle name returns with the 2015 Indian Scout. This is the first all-new revision in over seventy years, with this one incorporating the model’s trademark “rigid” triangular shape and a cast aluminum frame, the lightest in its class. It features a solo tan leather bucket seat sitting 25 inches off the ground, a 61.5-inch wheelbase and a 31-degree lean angle. This will be one of the more sportier cruiser-style bikes out there and the 1133cc V-twin engine delivers the performance. Look for the 2015 Indian Scout to be available later this year in black, red, matte grey and matte black with an MSRP of $10,999...

How To Improve Your Style… For Free!

By on Aug 12, 2014

1. Learn How To Sew Every guy should know how to make little fixes with a needle and thread, like replacing lost buttons or patching holes. A little effort to learn will pay off big time by adding some unique character to your clothes. Your fixes don’t have to be perfect—and that actually makes them cooler, and a bit more personal. 2. Button Swaps = A Brand New Look Changing small details, like your buttons, make a big difference on any garment. Breathe new life into a black blazer by swapping in nautical-inspired gold buttons from that navy one in the back of your closet or give a tired button-down an upgrade with mother-of-pearl ones off a shirt that doesn’t fit (or you wouldn’t dare wear) anymore. You can even switch out buttons on heavy-duty outerwear like peacoats and topcoats to refresh them come winter—it’s like buying a totally new coat that’s...
