On the Radar
Reads and New Gear
Levi’s Fall Commuter Collection
Levi’s Fall collection of commuter-friendly gear includes details like water and dirt resistance, bike lock holders and added vents. Jeans and trousers fit higher in the back to accommodate riding, and some items contain reflective tape to make night riding safer.
Maison Kitsuné x Reebok Collection
Maison Kitsuné has paired with Reebok to bring a fresh collection of baseball-inspired back-to-school essentials. The color palette consists of clean creams, whites and small orange accents, and wouldn’t be complete without a luxe iteration of the Reebok Classic sneaker.
Tod’s Launches Menswear Line
Italian brand Tod’s has been making quality leather shoes and accessories since the 1920s. And they’re pretty good at it. Now, the brand has just launched its first-ever menswear line for Fall/Winter ’15, available exclusively at Mr. Porter. Don’t worry — they didn’t leave out the classic leather driving shoe.
Acne Studios Fall Accessories
Acne Studios’ Fall collection of small leather goods extends the brand’s prowess for leather making to a unique collection of iPhone cases, various pouches, tasteful leather bracelets and more. Rather than having the traditional four-corner design, though, Acne’s collection utilizes an asymmetrical design with two 90-degree corners and two circular ones.
Online Tux Rentals with Generation Tux
George Zimmer, formerly of Men’s Wearhouse, launched an online tux rental service called “Generation Tux”. This follows closely on the heels of his on-demand tailoring app, zTailors. Generation Tux customers can shop by category or by pre-styled looks, view a video tutorial to take their own measurements and order online. Tuxes arrive at the customer’s door seven days prior to the event (that’s five days sooner than Men’s Wearhouse, which does not offer online rentals).
Ábbatte’s AW15 Collection
Ábbatte, purveyor of small-batch linens, brings a collection of garments and home products for fall. Ábbatte manufactures with hand looms and handmade dyes (which they source from local plants) from a 13th-century monastery in Spain. The company also offers courses on linens, fashion, color philosophy and more.
