KENTON SORENSON DOPP KIT



This manbag, or Dopp Kit, is hand made in Wisconsin using natural leather.

Over time it will age beautifully with use and become a deep golden brown.

The kit has a simple leather wrap around tie closure that can also be used to keep the kit open while in use.




Check it out at context.

WE LOVE THE WOOLRICH WALLET

Simple and beautifull, this wallet is handmade in Italy from a lightweight cut of rich tan leather. It would be great to emboss the Hansen Family logo on the front!
Can be found @ Blackbird.

ROOT BY ART IN THE AGE



A few hundred years ago settlers picked up the recipe for a beverage called Root Tea, which was the combination of roots, spices and herbs that fermented and became alcoholic. A couple hundred years later prohibition started to kick in so Root Beer was created to fill the gap of this product, recreating the flavor it lacked the alcholic contents. Cut to present day where Art in the Age have decided to start creating Root Tea again, alcohol content and all, calling it simply Root.

WE LOVE STARGESS ARCHITECTURE



Home sweet home! Stargess Architecture did another masterpiece! The Calgary-based firm is responsible for the Bowen Island House, a modern-style home built on a cliff overlooking Howe Sound. Naturally finished slate, cedar shingles and copper coloured roof find appropriateness in the coastal context of the building’s surroundings.

MAGIC HOUR AT GREEN LAKE

Short Film by Scott Fisher
Magic hour at Green Lake with skateboards, a steadicam, and a 7D.

We love … Swedish Hasbeens



I got the biggest deja-vu ever this weekend when I found the pair of swedish Hasbeens, that I used to wear as a child every summer in denmark. I love their slogan "nailed in sweden" that they print on their boxes and the logo embossed strap. I found mine in a small shoestore on the french atlantique coast but I checked the internet and saw that they sell them on urban outfitters as well.
