north face for j. crew mountain jacket

NF1

and while we’re on the subject of fratty (see below post)…j. crew has partnered with north face for the re-release of its “iconic” mountain jacket.  i’ll be honest, this jacket looks like every other north face jacket i’ve ever owned, but j. crew’s website tells me it’s a lot different i.e. it has reinforced shoulders like the one from 1985 and longer zipper pulls.  ok, if you say so j. crew.

born in the usa / bruce springsteen kit

bruce springsteen’s 17th album wrecking ball is out today.  i’ve heard a few tracks from it.  it sounds like vintage bruce.  i’m excited to give it a spin this morning.  springsteen occupied the jimmy fallon show last week by playing a couple of new tunes and dressing up like born in the usa bruce (you can check that out here).  i can’t say that born in the usa is my favorite boss album, but it’s hard to argue with the all-american style of it’s iconic cover.  here’s a tiny tribute to it in the form of a kit: 

j. crew broken-in pocket tee – you can save a lot of laundry detergent by buying an already broken-in t-shirt.

red yankees hat – that’s a red baseball hat in bruce’s pocket and not a bandana.  it was given to him by his buddy lance larson.  bruce put it his back pocket as a tribute to larson’s late father.

levi’s shrink to fit 501 jeans – fact: levi’s sales went through the roof after this album came out.

braided belt – i would not recommend a bedazzled belt like bruce is wearing on the cover.

frye engineer boots – the boss wears fryes.  who knew.  who also knew that frye is one of the world’s oldest bootmakers.  not me.

fender telecaster – i have a tele.  i f**king love it.

 

“i’m a long gone daddy in the usa.”

sperry cloud cvo sneakers

i love canvas sneakers.  they’re cheap and look good with anything besides formal wear.  i’m a vans man first and foremost, but these sperry 75th anniversary cvo sneaks are the nuts.  i saw them on selectivism last week and bookmarked the hell out of that page.  the only problem with the link they attached to the post is that it’s for a store in the uk and they’re out of a bunch of sizes.  fear not for i have found some here.  if you want the red (above), they’re only $40 right now.  act fast because they may not be around for long.
