LAYERxlayer, whose made-to-order bags we’ve posted in the past, has a collection of great looking denim aprons soon to be available. Like their bags, the aprons are also made-to-order and produced with American grown & woven denim which provides durability and breaks in well over time. At this quality, they should be the first choice of any artist or craftsman that uses an apron. While you can’t order online directly yet, they should be available soon and you can contact LAYERxlayer to be placed on notification list. When available, the aprons will come in black, grey, or raw denim varieties and cost $75-$95.
This Stussy x Manhattan Portage collaboration brings in a fresh new year with clean lines on either black/white or blue/white colorways. Unfortunately the bags are only available in Stussy Japan stores for now, but Manhattan Portage announced they’ll be sold worldwide later this Spring. We’ll keep you posted when they become available.

Veja, French producer of eco-friendly sneakers, bags and accessories, has released their debut line of laptop sleeves and wallets. While we haven’t gotten our hands on them yet, they’re both looking pretty damn sharp. The wallet features an acacia-tanned leather exterior and an organic cotton interior while the laptop sleeves are made with an eco-friendly cotton canvas with leather details. The wallet is available in both medium and small sizes in burgundy, geranium, and black varieties. The sleeve comes in graphite and navy colors in 10″, 13″, 14″ and 15″ sizes. Both are available now at the Veja online shop at prices ranging from €55 to €75.
If you’re ever looking for a new hat, your first stop should be Coal. Founded in 2002 with a goal to make headwear more than just an accessory, they craft each hat with exacting detail and only the best materials. The result? Some of the best looking, high-quality headwear around. Best of all, they’ve got designs to suit nearly any style. They have truly succeeded in their mission to create a “headwear culture.” Most items are priced in at $30-40 range and are available for purchase at CoalHeadwear.com– though you really can’t put a price on a warm head anyways.
We’ve covered wooden sunglasses before, but there’s still plenty of room in the niche for Capital. The company produces vintage-inspired frames from domestically sourced hardwoods. The glasses are handcrafted in America, making each pair a bit unique. They’re made with the upmost workmanship and use only quality materials such as Carl Zeiss Sola lenses. Though Capital currently offers only two styles, the Bonnie/Clyde and the Ellie, both look great. The glasses run from $95 to $115 with the option of a polarized lens upgrade at Capital.

The blade is a traditional design historically popular in the Higo region of Kyushu. It’s the perfect size to carry with you and has a hole in one end to tie a rope through. The knife is available online for only $23 at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum Shop.
