A chance to get to know The Quality Mending Co. in NYC. Established in 2002 by Oliver Harkness, the vintage menswear shop with a nice line in own name goods opens its doors for this short film from Co.MISSION featuring employee David Kirby. For those curious to know more, a great interview from Denimhunters over here. Harkness talks about his friendship with Bobby from Boston, his love of denim and the ideas behind the store and its well chosen stock (check out that row of Big Boy Banks in the window). Lots of beautiful vintage to spot, press play.
Jeeps ready. @tripleaughtdesign
The Yamaha XS360 is an interesting motorcycle, the model never saw a huge production run and were, in many respects, the slightly smaller brother of the much more famous Yamaha XS400. Both bikes used an almost identical parallel-twin, air-cooled engine with a crank off-set of 180 degrees, both bikes had the same 6 speed transmission, both bikes used the same frame and both had a weight of 182kgs (400lbs).
Bottled History by Commoner
“Ray Gascoigne has spent a lifetime at sea as a shipwright and sea merchant. His memories and love for ships are made physical through miniatures he constructs with extreme care within old whisky bottles. Over the past 60 years he has built hundreds of replicas of ships from the past and present of maritime legend. Many were built at sea, in the lonely cabin hours of night, and Ray (now 85) continues his craft on land today” (watch video).
