PRODUCT REVIEW: The Fred Perry x Nicholas Daley Bomber

The new Fred Perry x Nicholas Daley collab is predictably [flames emoji], especially this corduroy bomber. Making a bomber in corduroy is a fucking MOVE. When I wear a bomber I always worry I look like a prick especially because, like every next guy in Berlin, I have an undercut. (My coeditor on my last review: “even though your face is pixelated you can still tell you’re a fuckboy”.) But make a bomber in corduroy – beloved by: beleaguered protagonists of 70s paranoia films; charmingly forgetful college professors in the 70s; everyone else in the 70s – and you kind of look sophisticated.

Easily the best corduroy wearers were Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid though. A few years back I went to a halloween party where the theme was “doubles” or “pairs” or something like that, and me and a pal donned cord jackets and cowboy hats thinking we’d look like Butch ’n’ Sundance – everyone just thought we’d come as Jack and Ennis from Brokeback Mountain. I guess there’s more than one way to be a cord clad cowboy 🤔.

  • Dev Hynes Collaborates with OAMC and Adidas on a Capsule Collection

    Under the music moniker Blood Orange, Devonté Hynes has spent the last decade softening the strident ego of mainstream pop with the wistful jazz and new wave tones, as well as musings on identity, belonging, and vulnerability, on albums such as Cupid Deluxe or Negro Swan. Singer, songwriter, producer, and director Hynes, who goes by Dev, brings his solitary sensibility to his other projects, too – whether scoring films and fashion shows, collaboration with visual artists, or, more recently, starring as the face of a capsule collaboration between adidas and OAMC, a menswear label founded by Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh in 2013.More
