American Craftsman Project

In a time when the economy is dominated by mass production and over consumption, it’s nice to see companies still getting it done the old fashion way, by making products from beginning to end by hand. While small businesses are the backbone of the US, they don’t receive the nationwide attention that they deserve. Photographer Tadd Myers of Texas is shedding light on these good folks in the American Craftsman Project, a series of stories and photos highlighting craftspeople in all different trades. It’s reassuring to know that there are Americans who are still passionate enough about their craft to combine blood, sweat and tears with their knowledge, passion and skills to create masterpieces that no machine in a factory could ever achieve. The Project is already under way but Tadd needs some help getting his book published, b s p o k e d definitely wants this on our coffee table so help him out!

Langly Camera Bags

Langly is a fresh new company with recent kickstarter success.  Freelance photographer, Evan Lane prototyped two styles of rugged camera bags to protect his expensive shit.   His mission was to construct “the” bag that would merge functionality and fashion.  After many persistent attempts Lane came out with two styles, the Alpha and Delta backpacks.  It is still relatively new so pre-order one now. ($199)

Wewood Collection ’12

WeWood came on the map a couple years ago with an avant-garde approach to watch making. Italian born, they sport a sophisticated look, and uses state-of-the-art Miyota movements. But that’s only the topsoil. WeWood’s philosophy is rooted far beneath their sleek designs. They stick to their guns, and their philosophy is to replace what they take. For every watch they sell, WeWood plants a tree to help restore mother nature. b s p o k e d wanted to feature this eco-friendly company and their impact on both the fashion world and the environment. ($120-$139)

3×1 Denim Solutions

We all know quality jeans deserve the best care. We go months without washing them, stick ’em in the freezer, salt soak…anything to make sure they stay the same. To be honest these urban legend methods of preserving a pair of $300 raw denim are just a more comforting way of preparing for inevitable. Scott Morrison’s Soho store 3×1 is easing that grimace of our faces with Denim Solutions. An 8 0z. bottle lasts for 15 washes and at $20 a pop, it will keep that precious pair of jeans around a little longer. (we still recommend not washing that often)

Light Blue Ivy Polo

A polo shirt is not usually something I would get excited about wearing, because, well they are usually boring. But the good people at Left Field applied a small detail of Liberty print to the placket of a ringspun polo and came up with something fresh.
Woven, cut and sewn in the US.

Genuine Horween® Peanut suede. Hand-stitched moccasin construction. Vibram sole. Form-fitting inner. Waxed stitching. Rawhide laces. Handcrafted in the USA. What more do you need to know?

Apt 606

Joining the ranks of high profiled “talent” in Miami is the men’s and women’s boutique, apt606. They are slated to open doors on August 11th along with an online shop offering brands like Nike, Thom Browne and J Brand. My favorite part has to be the sharp design of the store itself. Well designed furniture with function, from displaying product to taking a load off after a day in the intense Miami heat.
