Unknwn Teams With Nutrition Brand Ladder on Capsule

Unknwn today will launch a limited-edition capsule collection with Ladder, a sports nutrition company cofounded by LeBron James and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The co-branded capsule is comprised of a white T-shirt and white custom fleece hoodie designed to celebrate Unknwn and Ladder’s shared athlete origin and commitment to fitness and wellness. James is a partner in Unknwn as well.
“At Unknwn, we strive to intersect sport and style, and we’re excited to continue our partnership with Ladder with this new project,” said Unknwn cofounder Jaron Kanfer. “Earlier this year, we launched our community workout program with Ladder and Nike in our store’s courtyard, and this capsule has been an evolution of our work together for athletes. Ladder shares our vision to support athlete development, seen with Ladder’s proven supplement formulas and with Unknwn’s open resources of weekly workout events for our local community.”
James and his trainer Mike Mancias explored advanced nutrition after James experienced cramps in the first gain of the 2014 NBA Finals. After revamping his workout regimen and nutrition, they were inspired to start their own supplement brand and consulted with Schwarzenegger, who has knowledge and experience in the sports nutrition industry.

A Perfect Match: Megan The Stallion Announced As Savage x Fenty Latest Brand Partner

Megan Thee Stallion

Source: Bernard Smalls / @PhotosByBeanz

In a move that makes all the sense in the world, Rihanna’s announced the Hot Girl, Megan The Stallion as Savage x Fenty’s newest brand partner.

If you didn’t know already, Meg rapped about being a savage, classy, bougie, ratchet, those qualities on her viral hit “Savage.” Those same qualities also happen to perfectly embody Rihanna’s insanely popular lingerie line, Savage x Fent. So it should come as to no surprise that everyone was thrilled with the announcement made today (May.21)  by the “Umbrella” singer and her company.

In a statement Rihanna spoke on the decision to work with Megan stating:

“Meg is the energy we were looking for. She is a risktaker with an attitude, character, and personality.”

It also helps that decision comes right on time as the Stallion’s “Savage Remix” featuring Beyoncé is currently tearing up the charts and is also doing numbers on TikTok, thanks to a viral dance that spawned the #SavageChallenge. Megan also spoke on her new partnership with Savage x Fenty while praising the lingerie line.

“I’m so excited to work with a brand that embodies diversity and celebrates women in all their glory. In my Savage x Fenty, I feel sexy, comfortable, and confident. We want all the hotties around the world to feel good about themselves exactly as they are.”

The Houston rapper isn’t lying either, two photos accompanied the announcement, and Megan looks very S E X Y, comfortably and confident in her Fenty as you can see in the Instagram post below she shared.

Ladies and fellas (if you’re shopping for significant other), the collection is available now on SavageX.com, Amazon,  Asos.com, and Zalando.com. Prices range from  $ 13 to $ 105. In more Megan The Stallion news, she also dropped the animated visual for “Savage” today. You can peep it below.

Workers Rights Consortium Launches COVID-19 Brand Tracker

MAKING A LIST: In association with Pennsylvania State University’s Center for Global Workers’ Rights, the Workers Rights Consortium has created a “COVID-19 Brand Tracker.” The tracker offers a list that will continually be updated to indicate which apparel labels and retailers are paying their suppliers for orders that are in production or completed, as well as those that are refusing to do so.
As of late in the day Tuesday, companies that had committed to paying in full for completed orders and in-production ones were H&M, Adidas, Nike, Inditex, PVH Corp., Target (U.S.), VF Corp., Uniqlo, Marks & Spencer, LPP and Kiabi. Suppliers have raised concerns that VF is not honoring that commitment, and WRC is looking into that, as it will with any similar concerns about other companies, according to the site.
The tracker also lists companies that have not made a commitment to pay in full for orders completed and in-production ones. C&A, Gap, Primark, Kohl’s, Arcadia, J.C. Penney, Bestseller, Urban Outfitters, Asos, Mothercare, Tesco, Walmart and Next were the companies listed in that category, according to the WRC’s new tool.
The WRC’s COVID-19 Brand Tracker has ancillary information that acknowledges how COVID-19 has resulted in a huge drop in demand

Tyra Banks, Nine West’s Brand Ambassador, on Modelland and More

“I like to say we’re like the Disney of fashion and beauty and self-esteem,” said Tyra Banks of her newest undertaking Modelland, the “location-based attraction,” as she refers to it, opening in Santa Monica, Calif., on May 1. “We’re there to stay.”
It’s not a pop-up, emphasized the model-turned-entrepreneur. In fact, it’s perhaps the start of an international franchise. “There’s been a lot of interest,” she said. “And there’s a lot of money that went into building Modelland. When you go in there, you’ll go, ‘Oh, this is not popping down tomorrow or anytime soon.’”
General admission day tickets for adults at the 21,000-square-foot venture starts at $ 59 and goes to $ 1,495 (for the “fantasy dream” option).
“It’s a place where everybody can be the fantasy versions of themselves,” she explained at Nine West’s spring 2020 campaign unveiling. Banks is the brand’s newest brand ambassador. “You’re led on this story-driven adventure where you are taking the coolest photos with lighting designed for you. There’s tips and tricks from me.

Andreas Aresti Debuts New Brand Lourdes in Paris

FASHION HOLOGRAMS: Guests treaded carefully upon arriving at the Lourdes presentation on Wednesday: the floor at the entrance of the Dragons Elysées restaurant was a pane of glass atop an aquarium.
That wasn’t the only quirky detail that evening. Instead of racks of clothing or even a photo installation, designer Andreas Aresti decided to show his debut women’s wear collection on holographic screens.
While his name might not ring a bell, Aresti is behind some of the buzziest fashion brands around: he started at 17 years old at Gypsy Sport, then went on to design for Tim Coppens, Kanye West and Stefano Pilati for the launch of Random Identities. The designer is now working on the relaunch of Hood By Air alongside Shayne Oliver.
“My aesthetic is an accumulation of all of these experiences,” said Aresti, who is now 26 years old.
Named after his mother, Lourdes is a brand offering clothes that are easy to wear: multi-pocket jeans, silk dresses, leather pieces and a skirt created out of an upside down ribbed cotton tank top, a nod to Aresti’s personal style – he confessed to wearing one everyday.
The color palette — earthy tones of brown, black, beige and hints of blue — was

Meet the Brand Introducing ‘Soft Masculinity’ to Men’s Skincare

Next time you restock your skincare essentials, pay special attention to the hallmarks that epitomize men’s grooming. Notice the monochromatic or grayscale packaging, with hard lines and minimal graphics. Does the product’s overall vibe skew rugged, sporty, and outdoorsy? Take a sniff. Catch those notes of sage, tobacco, mint, or musk? There’s a reason behind this relatively narrow spectrum of characteristics: Each element has been strategically engineered to be a perfect foil to women’s products and cosmetics— overcorrecting for bright colors; uplifting names, and fruity, floral aromas.

For the founders of men’s skincare brand Soft, this pink-versus-blue tactic is shockingly outdated. Patrick Dolezal, Emily Farra, and James O’Dwyer—three friends who met at Indiana University—joined forces to tackle the men’s aisle, redefining how the marketplace can interpret and sell masculinity in the form of cosmetics. For the launch of their debut product, the Soft Moisture Mask, masculinity means coloring outside the lines. This is a mask for the modern man. Or anyone, really. And that’s the point.

The Moisture Mask by Soft
The Moisture Mask by Soft Justin Hollar

“The philosophy behind Soft is really rooted in the name,” says Dolezal. “Not long ago, if you weren’t ‘masculine enough,’ or you showed any sort of emotion, you were ‘soft,’ and that was considered a negative thing. But being soft is actually great—it means you’re in touch with your emotions, you’re okay with being sensitive, and mostly you’re just comfortable with who you are.” It also has a double meaning: The mask is supremely hydrating, making your skin incredibly soft.


Could Fad Diets Lead to a Long, Healthy Life?

The modern man actually wants to embrace skincare as a self-care ritual rather than a hygienic necessity—and knows that it doesn’t make him any less of a man. How much longer can we wait for brands to acknowledge this natural evolution? With its unconventional branding and engaging messaging, the trio behind Soft shares a message that’s more than skin-deep: that antiquated notions of masculinity need not persist.

“When we began researching the men’s brands out there, we really didn’t find many options,” O’Dwyer chimes in. “Most of the ‘men’s brands’ weren’t selling masks—or if they did, the branding felt really outdated and didn’t resonate with our New York lifestyle.”

Just take a peek at Soft’s website. From the ’70s-inspired graphics to the diverse cast of models wearing pastel shirts and holding flowers, we see that the approachably confident “soft guy” eschews what it means to be a man’s man. It’s more aligned with the “soft masculinity” cultural movement spurred by male K-Pop stars who proudly wear makeup (just not all the way there).

Soft model Ryan, who's also an artist and designer

“We tried to subvert these archaic rules of what is ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine,’ ” he adds. “At the end of the day, we think the guy who’s buying Soft is into the fact that we represent a departure from the historically conservative narrative around men’s skincare and masculinity.”


How to Clean Up Your Facial Hair for Spring

O’Dwyer himself is a believer that the ritualistic aspect of skincare lends itself to general well-being. “We really enjoy the ritual: dimming the lights, putting on a record, listening to a guided meditation, burning palo santo, and smoothing on the mask at the end of the day,” he professes. “That’s something everyone can (and should) treat themselves to at least once a week.” Soft packages up self-care quite nicely, with guided meditations, cocktail recipes, and self-care advice posted on their site. For a self-care starter pack, you can purchase the Ritual Set, which throws in Palo Santo sticks with the Moisture Mask for spiritual cleansing.

“Our branding and photo shoots were conceived to fill a void in the market, but we never wanted to exclude people who are female or non-binary. It was always important to us that people of every gender would identify with Soft—especially since it’s a complete myth that skincare should vary by gender,” tells Dolezal. “Skin is skin, and most of these products have the same ingredients in them. We’ve had great feedback from women from the very beginning; some of them are really into our soft masculinity messaging, but others don’t seem to consider Soft a ‘men’s brand’ at all.”

The Ritual Set by Soft
The Ritual Set by Soft Justin Hollar

With “toxic masculinity” in the rearview mirror, the launch product had to be non-toxic—naturally. So the founders chose to abide by strict EU standards in cosmetic production. Whereas the U.S. FDA bans or restricts just 11 (!) potentially harmful chemicals, the EU’s list features over 1,400 elements. “It was a no-brainer for us, and we didn’t need to compromise anything in terms of quality or efficacy by avoiding those ingredients,” says Dolezal.


How to Get Chris Evans’ Manicured Beard and Slicked-Back Hairstyle

By tapping the expertise of a formulist, the team developed an incredibly effective moisturizing mask, one that boasts exceptional concentrations of enriching ingredients like hyaluronic acid for hydration, niacinamide for skin barrier protection, and squalane for smoothness. Nailing down the scent was also imperative. They landed on refreshing ginger root, a zesty aroma with a subtle earthiness that could easily differentiate itself from a sea of overpowering mint and cedar. Ginger is also reputed to protect against free radicals.

As for the future, Soft has its eyes on expansion. “We want to create products that tap into the ritual of skincare, from additional face masks to bath products, candles, and other items,” says O’Dwyer. “We also like the idea of keeping our product range small so we can really focus on each item and ensure it’s the very best.”

While they’re sticking with a direct-to-consumer online business, the Soft team is also exploring brick-and-mortar retail opportunities, and collaborations with like-minded names in fashion, skincare, music, and beyond. “People are increasingly drawn to brands with a clear purpose and a limited offering, not the ones that are trying to be everything for everyone.”

We give Soft a hard “yes.”

EXCLUSIVE: Christelle Kocher Talks Pucci Collaboration and Taking Her Brand Global

PARIS — Christelle Kocher’s Paris-based brand is gaining an Italian accent.
Between her collaboration with Emilio Pucci, set to bow in Milan today, and her recent alliance with entrepreneur Renzo Rosso’s fashion group OTB, the French designer is leveraging her connections across the Alps to propel her Koché brand into a new phase of expansion.
Hot on the heels of her prestigious ANDAM Grand Prize and collaborations with Nike and Converse last year, she is the first designer to be invited by Pucci to interpret its rich heritage, as part of a new strategy aimed at fostering creativity and innovation at the house, founded in 1947 in Capri.
Kocher, known for her guerrilla-style fashion shows melding sportswear influences with couture-inspired techniques, is no stranger to the brand’s history.
“I love reading the biographies of designers and I read about the life of Emilio Pucci years ago,” she said in an interview at her design studio, located on a cul-de-sac in the multicultural district of Ménilmontant in Paris. An aristocrat, Olympic skier and air force pilot, Pucci pioneered a lifestyle approach to fashion.
“He was a real character, and I think his approach was very modern. His brand was founded on comfortable jersey clothes, which was very

EXCLUSIVE: Activewear Brand Varley Secures a $5 Million Investment

Varley is upping its game. 
The fast-growing women’s activewear brand has secured $ 5 million in investments, which the company plans to use for product development, including moving into new categories, redesigning the web site and hiring additional staff. 
“Women are definitely adopting the performance fashion lifestyle,” Lara Mead, cofounder of the brand, told WWD. “The majority of women now are doing some form of physical exercise. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re running marathons. But maybe they’re walking the dog or hiking with friends or going to a yoga class. We provide that performance outfit for her, whatever her activity is.”

The investments were provided by two of Europe’s most well-known business leaders: Ron Dennis and Anders Povlsen. But Mead, who cofounded the company with husband Ben Mead, said the demand for ath-leisure and activewear apparel has been growing all on its own. 
The duo founded Varley in 2015 after taking a trip to California. It was there that they saw the health-and-wellness movements and ath-leisure movements taking off.
“Much more rapidly than it was in Europe at the time,” Lara said, and realized a hole in the European market. 
“There was nothing really that we felt that translated to a European woman’s wardrobe,” Lara

Juicy Couture in Tie-up With Canadian Brand Brunette

TORONTO — Vancouver Fashion Week serves up a noteworthy debut on Thursday as Brunette the Label takes to the runway to unveil its first collaboration with Juicy Couture.
Known for its message of inclusivity and its Fab Brunette and Babe logoed crewneck sweatshirts, the limited-edition 10-piece collection features the brand’s most popular styles reimagined with Juicy Couture’s classic Gothic font and signature details, as well as an homage to its popular pink, zip-up velour tracksuit.
“My fascination with Juicy Couture started when I bought my first tracksuit in college. Three out of the four people who spoke at my wedding said you’d always find me in my Juicy Couture tracksuit,” said Brunette founder, chief executive officer and creative director Miriam Alden, whose brand launched in 2014 and is sold in more than 700 retail partners in Canada and the U.S.
The collaboration began in February 2018 because of the sighting of a big pink neon sign bearing the words “Babes Supporting Babes” — Brunette’s signature catchphrase.
Exhibited in Los Angeles, the brand’s promo was transferred to Project Las Vegas for display at the trade show. Three days later, one of the senior directors of partnerships from Juicy Couture’s parent Authentic Brands Group passed by

Swerving the Runway: Not Every Brand Needs a Splashy Show to Succeed

LONDON — Who needs the runway when there’s the digital screen, the salon, showroom, shop floor — or a cup of tea and a chat?
Brands such as Duro Olowu, Markus Lupfer, Goat, Needle & Thread, Bella Freud, Rixo and Giuliva Heritage certainly don’t need to walk the catwalk, and neither do scores of others, in London — and other fashion cities worldwide.
In an industry where the noise has become deafening, where sustainability is top-of-mind, and communing with the end-consumer has become second nature for so many designers, the runway — with a few exceptions — can look out of date, expensive, bad for the environment – and just wrong.
During London Fashion Week, which wrapped on Tuesday, protesters from Extinction Rebellion turned up the heat outside Victoria Beckham’s show and outside the official British Fashion Council venue.
The protesters, who want to put an end to fashion production and consumption, chanted their slogans — and pleaded peacefully with showgoers to quit shopping. They held up placards that said: “Repair, re-wear, rebel,” and “Enough is enough. Fashion = Ecocide.”
Early Tuesday, during a lively debate on the sustainability of fast fashion at the Royal Danish Embassy here, Judith Watt, the fashion historian and journalism

The Biggest Fashion and Beauty Brand Controversies of 2019 — So Far

So far, 2019 has had no shortage of brand controversies in the fashion and beauty worlds.
The year started off with a number of gaffes from some of the biggest luxury fashion houses, in many cases resulting in public outcry, public apologies and, sometimes, changes in company policy. Some of the most notable fashion controversies of 2019 were Gucci’s infamous “blackface” balaclava and Burberry’s noose sweater. Kim Kardashian also came under fire for cultural appropriation when she revealed the name her first fashion line, a shapewear collection called Kimono.
From the backlash against Related Cos. chairman Stephen Ross and his many companies to Jaclyn Hill’s beauty brand recall, here is a breakdown of all the fashion and beauty brand controversies of 2019, so far.
Gucci accused of cultural appropriation, twice — February and May 2019

Aitor Rosas Su–Ž/WWD

Gucci came under fire for cultural appropriation not once, but twice in 2019. The first incident was in February when the designer house released a balaclava-style sweater in its fall 2018 ready-to-wear collection and on its web site, which many claimed resembled blackface.
The backlash was immediate on social media, including by Gucci collaborator Dapper Dan, who took to his Twitter account to express his disappointment

Flag & Anthem Names NFL Player Christian McCaffrey Brand Ambassador

Flag & Anthem has tapped NFL star Christian McCaffrey of the Carolina Panthers as its brand ambassador.
Previously, the men’s wear brand started by Azod Mohit and Brad Gartman has partnered with Ford Motors on a capsule collection and collaborated with country star Dierks Bentley, as well.
The partners seem to have been fated to work together. Gartman said he had followed McCaffrey’s career closely, going back to the athlete’s time at Stanford, where in 2015 he broke the NCAA record for all-purpose yards, was named Associated Press Player of the Year and was a runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. Meanwhile, McCaffrey said he shopped the brand and wore the clothes before shooting the campaign.
Gartman said McCaffrey is the “ideal core customer for the brand,” and they are in similar “emerging” stages, with McCaffrey starting his pro-football career in 2017, one year after Flag & Anthem launched. Gartman also described the partnership as “natural.”
The brand photographed its fall campaign in Colorado, which seems to have been a stroke of fate as well, considering that McCaffrey was born and raised in the state. While McCaffrey described the campaign shoot as “cool” and “easy,” Gartman expressed just how “natural” the shoot was.
“It was kind

Jay-Z Named Chief Brand Strategist Of Cannabis Company Caliva

The Broad Museum Celebrates the Opening of Soul Of A Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983 Art Exhibition - Arrivals

Source: Michael Kovac / Getty

Jay-Z just got onboard with the legal weed hustle. Today (July 9), cannabis company Caliva announced it has named the Brooklyn multi-hyphenate its Chief Brand Strategist.

Reportedly it’s a multiyear deal and Jigga is tasked with “driving creative direction, outreach efforts and strategy” for the brand. We’re going to say he has experience in such matters.

Part of Mr. Carter’s duties includes the participation of individuals who were incarcerated for their illegal marijuana activities. The goal is giving the aforementioned a fair shot at getting in the game post-legalization.

“Anything I do, I want to do correctly and at the highest level,” said Jay-Z via a press statement. “With all the potential in the cannabis industry, Caliva’s expertise and ethos makes them the best partner for this endeavor. We want to create something amazing, have fun in the process, do good and bring people along the way.”

Caliva is a cannabis consumer products company that was founded in 2015. The brand boasts a first-place finish in the 2019 High Times Cannabis Cup thanks to the “Z-Cube” in the Best Hybrid category. Other products it sells include vapes, tinctures and beverages.

Jay-Z wins, again.

This Direct-to-Consumer Brand Produces Some of Our Favorite Footwear

Ethical fashion is exploding, and it’s about time. Thanks to companies like Patagonia, Faherty, and Nisolo, consumers are moving away from cheap attire from fast-fashion brands and toward quality apparel made with ethically made products sourced from environmentally and socially responsible supply chains.


Three Sustainable Clothing Companies That Are (Figuratively) Killing It

If you haven’t yet heard of Nisolo, you soon will. The Nashville-based shoe and accessory manufacturer runs on one simple premise: If you’re paying too little for a product, chances are someone in the supply chain is getting the short end of the stick. And if you’re paying too much? That person is probably you.

Patrick Woodyard, Nisolo‘s founder and CEO, has created a quality shoe that will last for years, while being fair to the artisans and factory workers who actually produce the line—and to the planet from which it reaps its resources. 

How Is Nisolo Different?

Most consumers, blinded by the allure of cheap prices, are unaware that expansion of the global fashion industry the last few decades has been violently unjust, both for workers and for the planet. Low wages and poor working conditions are rampant; fully 98 percent of clothing industry employees work in unsafe conditions and/or receive wages below fair trade standards. And with exorbitant water usage, irresponsible waste disposal, non-biodegradable fibers, and filthy carbon emissions from coal-powered factories, the fashion industry is among the top five of the most pollutive industries in the world.


23 Menswear Brands Making the Next Generation of American Classics

Nisolo takes a direct-to-consumer approach so it can offer a fair price to the consumer while ensuring the workers in its supply chain are offered fair trade wages, benefits, and a healthy working environment. At the company’s own factory in Trujillo, Peru, Nisolo offers lessons in health, nutrition, English, and even yoga to its employees and their families. Meanwhile, the company insists its partner factories champion ethical causes as well. All producers and employees must be 18 years or older, and receive safe, healthy working conditions and healthcare and wages beyond fair trade standards.

And for every pair of Nisolo shoes sold, a contribution is made to help protect forests in the Amazon Basin.

What About the Shoes?

Nisolo shoes and boots exude class and effortless style that’s rooted in versatility, comfort, and quality. The leather is responsibly sourced from tanneries committed to the ethical treatment of animals (the leather is always a byproduct of the meat industry) and the implementation of eco-friendly waste disposal systems.

From wingtips to boots to duffel bags, Nisolo is turning the fast-fashion industry upside down with quality products, responsibly sourced, and ethically made. They may cost a bit more, but the quality is unparalleled. And with Nisolo, you know you’re not getting the short end of the stick.

Listed below are some of our favorite Nisolo products. Check out the full line here.

Andres All Weather Boot

Whether you’re traveling country to country or just getting things done around town, the Andres has you covered regardless of the conditions. It features a water-resistant, natural oil-based and vegetable-tanned leather upper, and a Vibram mini lug sole. The gusseted tongue keeps your toes dry. Also available in two shades of brown.

The New Generation of Watchmaker: Cameron Weiss on Building an American-Made Brand

Cameron Weiss, the founder of Weiss Watch Company, was only five years old when he first started taking apart watches. Of course, back then he didn’t have the ability to put them back together. Instead, they would be rendered into a pile of debris, so when family or friends had a piece that had run its course, they would hand it off to him with no expectation of getting it back.

“I would just sit there and dismantle any piece that I could get my hands on,” says Weiss from his workshop headquarters. Those pieces weren’t exactly of the highest caliber, but they helped ignite a fascination with the tiny mechanisms. “I didn’t know that there were people who actually got to put them together as a job.”

Since then Weiss has come a long way, all the way to Switzerland and back, where he honed his craft inside prestigious houses like Audemars Piguet and Vacheron Constantin. That experience, paired with an apprentice-style education under Swiss watchmakers, gave Weiss all the tools he needed to open his own watch company out of California.

Men’s Journal spoke with Weiss on becoming a watchmaker, being a tradesman in the digital age, his Crown & Caliber-backed podcast Watch and Listen, and building an American-made brand.

How did you first learn about watchmakers?
My parents asked me to help them buy a watch for my brother as a present. They didn’t know too much, and they knew how much I was crazy about them. I came across this collector while I was shopping around and ended up talking with him quite a bit. He was the one who first told me about the watchmakers in Switzerland, he had been there and visited some of the factories. I was amazed by the stories of people actually hand-making and polishing the parts.

How did you start training to become one?
I found out from a family friend that there were watchmaking schools, and a certain program called WOSTEP [Watchmakers Of Switzerland Training And Education Program]. They operate with a Swiss curriculum, and while most are in Europe, there are three very small ones in the United States. They cap it at eight students for two years full-time. There was almost no book reading. It was all hands on. Two Swiss watchmakers and the head of the program fly in to grade your final tests. Getting the call that I passed was one of the best phone calls I have ever gotten.

What came for you next?
One of our instructors worked for Audemars Piguet, and I got a job offer from them right after the test. They flew me out to Switzerland, to Le Brassus in the Vallée de Joux, just north of Geneva. It is the watchmaking capitol of the world. I had never been to Switzerland at the time; I had only seen photos and read about it. They drove me through the mountains, through this little village where Audemars has taken over pretty much all of the buildings. Every one of these beautiful, farm-style buildings is working on some part of their watches or built around the workers. I got to walk through the factories and see all of the people assembling or doing complex repairs. There is one special restoration workshop where these very experienced hands are able to work on almost any piece that Audemars ever made. Plenty of antique tools that they don’t even make any more, some of the machines are still manual. It was a life-changing trip. I got the chance to go back when I started working for Vacheron Constantin, and stayed there for a couple of months. I got to train in complex watches with them, which meant I got to explore quite a bit more.

Did you ever plan on living out there?
The idea of starting my own watch line was always in the back of my head, and I thought that I would have to live in Switzerland to do it. That was just the way it had always been done. I was waiting for my French to get good enough, and to get enough contacts, but while I was working at the Vacheron boutique on Rodeo doing repairs on old pieces, I realized that I could do it right here in California.

How did that realization come to you?
I had already started making watches for myself, and I would wear them whenever I wasn’t at the boutique. People stopped and complimented them or asked where I had gotten them. I would attend these pop-up events for American denim lines, which were full of people who cared about craftsmanship and aren’t an electronic watch crowd. But they weren’t going to spend thousands on a Swiss timepiece either, so what they needed was a product that had all the mechanics while keeping the cost reasonable.

How did you start building?
I bought a whole workshop from the widow of a watchmaker. It was an amazing collection and I was honored to get it. I still have his workbench and a lot of the tools I got from him. There are so many tiny hand tools that are tailor made for just one precise purpose. Pin vices, screw drivers, and just gripping parts while you work on it. The tools have to be in perfect condition, because you can damage the piece if it hasn’t been taken care of expertly.

What problems did you come across?
The biggest issue was finding local manufacturers and machine shops that would help make the raw parts. For my own watches, I had been doing everything on my own, with my own hands, but to make a run properly I needed to find people that could help with that part of the process. There were many months driving around meeting with shops in the Los Angeles area. There were a lot of companies that just wrote me off, but there were a few that were excited by the idea. Many of these companies hand never made watch parts before—they were making gear for cars and planes, and so it was a completely new business for them as well. Some of them we still work with to this day.

How did you go about designing the look of your watches?
I wanted to create a brand that was distinctly American. I was a diver growing up and have spent a lot of time in the ocean. I worked for a company that built underwater camera housings before I started making watches. That job not only gave me access to CNC machines but also this beautiful and complicated diving gear. During that experience I discovered this love for old dive equipment and antique gauges. That, along with a fascination with aviation instruments, influenced my design for my first Field Watch.

How has the watch industry changed since you have been in it?
I think the watch industry has become a lot more fun than it was say five years ago when we first started. Everything was done a certain way and there weren’t a lot of the younger brands that exist now, not just outside of Switzerland but also inside of the country. People are starting to understand that you can buy a watch that isn’t a Rolex and that can have its very own cool factor. They are much more open to having a diverse collection with new names in it, which can be discovered in new marketplaces like Crown & Caliber.

What are the benefits of sites like Crown & Caliber?
One of the really cool benefits is it is a great way to find old watches outside of the standards we usually see. There is a really unique selection on there from brands that had been sort of lost to history. They are the kind that could become your favorite new piece, one that turns heads, and before Crown & Caliber, you may have never known it existed. I remember while doing an episode of our Watch and Listen podcast they sent us a white gold Blancpain where the case back opened up to reveal a sapphire. Nobody produces anything like that anymore.

Now you do a podcast with them as well. Why did you want to create Watch and Listen?
I enjoy getting to do the podcast because for so long I was only focused on what I was doing and the watches that I was making. The show gives me an opportunity to really look at what others are doing in the industry and that makes me an even better watchmaker. For most of the episodes, Crown & Caliber will send us a batch of pieces that I get to play around with, and because we also shoot on video, I can show people what is going on inside of them. Some of the pieces I have been really thrilled to get my hands on. They sent us the JLC Duometre Chronograph, which is just an unbelievable and gorgeous watch. One of the most beautiful things I have seen in person.

Have you found a lot of young people interested in becoming watchmakers?
I take apprentices in, which has been a great experience, to help me with the production. I don’t get as many as I would hope for. I think it’s tough in Los Angeles with the cost of living so high. People are interested in it, but they don’t have the time to really invest in building the skillset. There have been some successes still though, one of the guys I had working for me has gone on to start his own company. I can only hope that more and more makers will start up here in the United States. That is one of the main goals I have: to create an infrastructure to have more watches made here.

Now that you have your own workshop, outside of your apartment, what does a day look like for you?
I have a Sprinter van that we have set up for camping that I drive to the workshop. I love the walk through the back, roll up doors in the morning, seeing all the raw materials laid out ready for the machine shop. I have to be extremely diligent at not sitting down at the computer to look at emails or check my phone when it buzzes. So instead I will write a note to get organized and stay away from the laptop. I enjoy having that quiet time to myself in the workshop, getting time at the bench.
I always have a coffee to sip while building; there are so many great roasters around here. I have made a lot of friends in the coffee industry over the years. I will lay out all the parts of a piece in front of me, ready for assembly, and play some music while I work. Finishing one can take a few days, but I love it.

What is the best part of your job?
The most rewarding part is seeing a watch that you built out in the wild, whether it is at a car show or on the street. I will usually try to say hello, or ask them where they got it. One morning I drove up next to a guy at a traffic light and I saw one of my pieces on his wrist. I have to say that made me smile.

Faherty Brand Is Having a Huge Sale on Huckberry

Faherty Brand makes clothing that can be worn just about anywhere (not to mention comfortably be dressed up or down for any occasion). Started by surf buddies Alex and Mike Faherty, the label combines surf know-how and Mike’s previous experience designing for Ralph Lauren into an apparel line that’s a hit for both beach bums and city dwellers. Every item in the brothers’ capsule collection is a love letter to the beach and can only be found at Huckberry. Needless to say, when we learned the brand is marked down, we had to add a few finds to our cart—including this knit shirt.

faherty brand
Huckberry

The button-down is designed to look like a classic chambray, but has the ultra-soft feel you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. The rich (and natural) indigo color dresses up the typically lightwash look, and has natural stretch to move right along with you. The painted metal buttons help dress up the style.

While we doubt you’ll have any problems finding things to pair with the versatile top, we think it’ll look particularly dapper with a pair of chinos.

Shop the Faherty Brand Indigo Jacquard Henley in Indigo Geo Arrow for $ 108.98 (down from $ 128).

Prices are accurate at the time this article was published, but may change over time.

James Harden Named Stance Brand Ambassador For Socks and Underwear

James Harden has added another cushy sponsorship to his resume. The Houston Rockets’ high scoring guard has been named Stance’s first Punk & Poet brand ambassador for socks and underwear.

“I’ve been a fan of Stance for as long as I’ve known about them,” said Harden via a press relased. “I’m excited to officially kick this thing off.”

Harden will release a signature line of Stance socks, along with Stance underwear—a new venture for the fast-growing company, too.  

It seems like Stance underwear will help keep the funk at bay thanks a Butter Blend fabric that’s being touted as super soft and “nourishing” to the skin since it’s made from milk protein.

Stance is the official on court sock of the NBA. Harden joins a roster that already includes Klay Thompson and Allen Iverson, amongst others.

Fresh & Useless: Brand New Girls Sexually Exploited by The Butler

Butler Bill Bailey steps into the Master bedroom to enjoy a drink and finds a pair of hapless slaves locked in punishment bondage. These brand new girls managed to anger Governess Aiden Starr and have been stripped of their uniforms and left naked with a note requesting Bill make them earn their clothes back. Bill is not the sort of man to turn down a good time and makes good use of 19 year old Melissa and slutty cock sucker Karmen. Both girls drool and beg as he runs his gloved hands over their vulnerable flesh and shoves his cock deep in their gagged mouths. Karmen screams as bill violently fucks her in the body stocks and whips her tight body with a flogger. Karmen is set in a predicament, holding both girls uniforms on silver trays that she must keep balanced in the air. If she drops them, innocent little Melissa will be zapped mercilessly while fucking hard dick. It’s an impossible challenge, even for a well toned slave. Karmen has tight nipple clamps and a hitachi tied tightly to her pussy creating helpless orgasms in waves. Melissa begs her to keep her arms up as she exhausts herself bouncing on Bill’s dick, but eventually gravity wins and Karmen is apologizing to Melissa’s pussy with her tongue as both slaves are zapped repeatedly. Bill has been thoroughly amused with the whole affair, and gives the slaves back their newbie uniforms. Then he ties them both on a table with their sweet asses in the air for a proper reaming. These newbies learn how to properly serve the House with many orgasms and faces covered in cum.

Brand New Grand Cherokee

Michigan, USA.

A man buys a brand-new Grand Cherokee for over 30 thousand dollars with 400+ dollar monthly payments. He immediately finds his friend and they decide
go duck hunting. However, all the lakes in their area are frozen.

They travel to the lake with their guns, their hunting dog, their beer, and the new vehicle. They drive out onto the lake ice and get ready. Now, they
want to make some kind of a natural landing area for the ducks, something for the decoys to float on. Remember, it’s all ice, and to make a hole large
enough to look like something a wandering duck wants to fly down and land on, it is going to take a little more effort than an ice hole drill.

Out of the back of the new Grand Cherokee comes a stick of dynamite with a short, 40-second fuse. Now, these two men know that if they place the stick
of dynamite on the ice far from where they and the Grand Cherokee are standing, they take the risk of slipping on the ice when they run from the
burning fuse and possibly going up in smoke with the resulting blast. So, they decide to light this 40-second fuse and throw the dynamite.

Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the vehicle, the beer, the guns, and the DOG? Yes, the dog — a highly trained black lab used
for retrieving, especially things thrown by the owner. The dog takes off at a high rate of doggy speed on the ice and gets the stick of dynamite (with
the burning 40-second fuse) at about the same time it hits the ice, while the two men yelling, stomping, waving arms, and wondering what to do
now.

The dog happily heads back from where it came from moments before, with the stick of dynamite, only to the mounting woes of the men, now really waving
their arms, yelling even louder, and jumping to new heights than ever before. Now one of the guys decides to think, grabs a shotgun, and shoots the
dog. The shotgun is loaded with #8 duck shot, hardly big enough to stop a black lab on its appointed rounds. The dog stops for a moment, slightly
confused, and continues on. Another shot, and this time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused and of course scared, thinking these men have
gone insane. He takes off to find cover, with the now really short fuse burning on this stick of dynamite. The cover the dog finds? Underneath the
brand-new Grand Cherokee sitting on the lake ice.

BOOM!

The dog dies instantly, and it and the brand-new Grand Cherokee sink to the bottom of the lake, leaving the men standing there with this “I can’t
believe this happened” look on their faces.

Later, the owner of the vehicle calls his insurance company, which tells him that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use of explosives is not
covered. He had yet to make the first of those 400+ a month payments.
