If your friday has been anything like mine, STRESSFUL, you could take a few minutes to listen to this and relax.
Sorry for the lack of consistency with this one. Took me a bit to get the photos off of my camera. Featured this week is David Schmidt’s handmade, under the eyes of Marty from Geekhouse, road bike. We went out or a morning ride two weeks ago, in a thick thick fog. Was awesome getting out and riding the Mercer Island Loop again, my favorite ride in Seattle. Be on the look out for a disposable series from that day as well. .
Orange Dream Machine. This bike was made for the Shred Club kits.
Found another image of my fav look from this season’s ready to where from Saint Laurent. Taken by The Sartorialist.
Dylan from Deux North hit me up to share the newest trailer for their next video, HUNT 3. Looks like some beautiful bikes, beautiful country roads, and beautiful footage! Can’t wait to see more. Here is what they had to say:
“Deux North, a cycling brand started by brothers James and Dylan Nord, is out to tell a different kind of story. Using primarily short documentary films these stories aren’t just about racing or riding your bike; they are about the passion behind the obsession, the freedom felt while riding, and the things we learn about ourselves and others in the saddle. It’s the kind of story you have to go out and create, or in their words, hunt.
This is the trailer for Hunt 3, a third in a series of ten trips around the world that involve beautiful roads, fast bikes, surprising people, and a natural setting that’s quite different from the brand’s home in New York City. This particular trip took a group of 5 riders, or hunters, to upstate New York. Setting up camp outside of the small town of Boonville, they split time documenting the local lumberjack competition and hundreds of miles of gorgeous riding.”
Also don’t forget to check out their shop I love the socks!
I just received this album. I had pre-ordered it months ago and forgotten about it, but what a pleasant surprise. The artwork is so great, the record is blue vinyl, and this song makes me want to learn to tango so bad! I just can pick being in a sweet tuxedo, whisking around a snazzy dressed woman to this song. Modern yet class. Love what Monster Rally is doing. Enjoy.
*EDIT* I began searching around for images that represent this music and immediately thought of 50′s-60′s Modern Beach Houses. Somewhat futuristic and clean but also laid back.
So I know that I missed this weeks Weekly Wednesday Post – I have been crazy busy, so it will have to wait til next week. Instead I wanted to share some photos that have been keeping me inspired on the design side of things.
**EDIT** I’m seriously obsessed with the first photo in this post. I love the look. I’d never wear it, but there is just something so awesome about it. Maybe it’s the contrast between a flannel one of the most manly and casual things, and the slightly feminine extremely formal jacket it is paired with.
