quick word about drive

i recently saw drive.  it’s easily one of the best films of the year.  a couple of things worth noting: 1) the soundtrack is incredible – sets the mood of the film perfectly.  2) the scorpion jacket ryan gosling wears in the film is custom made and inspired by korean souvenir jackets from the 1950s.  3) the boots are a cap toe boot made by stacy adams.  4) the jean jacket is vintage levi’s.  5) his watch is a replica of a patek phillippe and currently not for sale.  5) the bag he uses in the film is a large filson duffle.  6) sunglasses are selima optique.

  1. Really enjoying this blog, dont even remember how i came across it possible through Esquire, some recent purchases you’ve helped with; the Sperry wingtips, Bears throwback hat, and a vintage store find, the Barracuda Jacket. I still haven’t decided between the Wolverine 1000 mile boot and the Red Wing Beckman boot….

    Stephen, I really appreciate the kind words. Thanks for visiting. You can’t go wrong with the Beckman or 1000 mile. Tough decision.
