KZO x Unholy Matrimony Autumn/Winter 2009

KZO and Unholy Matrimony will be linking up again to put forth some great pieces for the Autmn/Winter 2009 season. We have shown you past efforts from the two entities in the past, so we are excited to show you the latest from SlamxHype blogger, Joel K., and Brett Westfall of Unholy Matrimony. Four new pieces are offered all with extremely interesting design features: uneven thermal pants with an antiquated design that places buttons around the rear for easy access and what not; tees (which are not pictured, but the graphics featured in the background of these images are used for them); cropped flannel pants that can zip off below the knee; and my personal fave, the flannel that comes with a detachable hood and sleeves. The flannel can also be folded into a pouch to be carried around if need be. Past works from their combined efforts have produced some very high quality pieces, and I am certain these will be no exception.

I just noticed that Blackbird in Seattle has just received product from this Japanese company and I must say that the quality looks very on point. A range of footwear and a couple of bags from Chausser have arrived at this Pacific Northwest shop and everything looks pretty good in my opinion. The leathers looks great and the construction looks top-notch. The product of course carries a high price tag, but the footwear looks like it will only get better with time making it a good investment in the long run. A few of the silhouettes look good, so I selected a few to post as well as an especially nice looking leather bag.

Working in Los Angeles by Brian Cross

When I was younger, I worked at a now defunct hip-hop magazine and one of my fondest memories of that job was Brian Cross’ photos that he shot for us. Cross, also known as B+, has put together a book of photographs that feature those that are part of the Los Angeles workforce and even though their jobs vary, they share a uniform brand of workwear: Dickies apparel. I have not seen the book at all with my own eyes, but I am sure it will be excellent and more than worth its price tag.
