Saline by Stefan Junir

June 07, 2016

The ocean has been a constant in my life. An ever present source of vitality, a safe heaven where all worries melt away, a joyful exit from the day to day and a consistent inspiration. 
 
John F. Kennedy said it well:
"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it's because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it's because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea - whether it is to sail or to watch it - we are going back from whence we came."
Local photographer, Stefan Junir, captured some incredible "Saline" images on film recently and was nice enough to share with us.

NORTH Fall '16

October 13, 2016

North Fall '16 is a collection of classic essentials all made in Los Angeles. The collection comprises of 4 timeless pieces:

Its a perfect broken in denim jacket based on a vintage type 3 but cleaned up and simplified. Followed by a classic CPO Shirt Jacket with an incredible dead stock fabric that once you touch it, you'll have to have it. Then we've got our chambray shirt, which we simplified so its a little less workwear and a little more versatile. You can wear it so many ways. And finally our chinos, which we worked hard on the fit of these pants. They've got a touch of a higher raise for comfort and then we really spent time on the taper of the leg and in my opinion we achieved a perfect fit for a chino. The great thing about the collection is you can literally wear all the pieces together; each compliments one another well and that was my intention.
