Another issue of Black Ivy Docs brought to you from the guys at Street Etiquette and Ali of A Noble Savage. I’m so glad Ali talked about “editing”. If only more of us put some real effort towards the editing process. Enjoy and read more at Street Etiquette.

While I was in San Francisco back in June, (among other things) I also got the chance to visit one of my favorite urban menswear retailers, Taylor Stitch. Located in the bustling Mission district and right next door to my favorite coffee shop, Four Barrel Coffee (which I’ve affectionately refer to as “hipster coffee”), Taylor Stitch is a shop that specializes in locally made, well-crafted shirts. A limited run is made of each style. What I like most about Taylor Stitch shirts is the way their XS size fits me. It’s damn near perfect – not tight, no bunching up, and they are made with high armholes for easy and comfortable sleeve roll-ups.
After I got back to PDX, I showed off my new shirt to David. He was pretty impressed as well and wanted one too. Apparently they’re pretty popular, because we couldn’t find a shirt in David’s size. So when I received an email last week about a limited run of Indian Madras Shirts, I placed an order for both of us. Needless to say, our order came today and I’m very a happy man.
Thanks Taylor Stitch,

Well scratch it:
My Post-Materialist Summer. At least for now. Back in May, I made a post entitled “My Latest Tech Obsessions“. Drumroll please: The wait is over and my Amazon.com wishlist finally became a reality.
I’ve been swooning over the TDK 3 Speaker Boombox since I first laid eyes on it. The Apple Time Capsule was long overdue. I’ve been really lucky (knock on wood) flying solo with no back-up and not having a reliable external hard drive for as long as I’ve had a computer. Not knowing Clarks run about one size bigger, my first pair didn’t fit, so I got finally got a pair that actually fit.
Aaaaaaaaah, now back to that Post-Materialist Summer stuff I was talking about yesterday.
What a great photoset and another creative project from the guys of Street Etiquette.
CROWNED is a portrait series by Street Etiquette that depicts the styles of 12 individuals through the lens of Andre Wagner that showcases the subject’s personal hairstyle. Inspired by the likes of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, ASWAD, BDK. and the Native Tongues collective, it’s clear that personal style starts at the top and matriculates downwards. The entire feature can be seen here. Check it out.
It’s been about 3 yrs since I’ve had to break in a new pair of raw denim jeans. Sadly, my last pair of Unbranded Denim jeans were laid to rest after putting them in the washing machine. BIG MISTAKE by the way.
So after months of window shopping and checking out online denim forums, I figured it was time to get a new pair and settled on APC Petite Standards. Since I am a student, and APC’s are on the lower end of the raw denim price spectrum, price was definitely factor. Plus I really love how APC’s age and fade.
This also gave me the chance to check out MACHUS. It’s a new shop in Portland’s Lower East Burnside neighborhood. They carry a lot of high end clothing and feature items from local designers as well. It’s definitely worth it to drop in. Plus they always have great sale/clearance items!
