ACL mentioned what we have thought since we first tried on a Batten jacket at Steven Alan earlier this season: Batten Sportswear is an Engineered Garments to the surf/ retro-outdoor world. ACL got a glimpse of the new Fall/Winter 2012 line that Batten will be releasing, and those fleeces, the pocket-crewneck sweatshirt, and these parkas are near the ideal of what we like to wear all day everyday. We live in SF, the comfort-wear capital of the world (we stole that line from Parra when he was here a few weeks back).
It’s the happy medium between camping and a hotel, plus you are allowed into trailer parks. Think of the photographic opportunities. You can go ready made style and luxury in the Eddie Bauer Airstream or do it yourself with a fixer up like the ones below:
First off, a nice collection of Air Jordan IIs, in the form of the Retro “Candy” Pack here. Fun shoes, shoes we wouldn’t wear per se, but if you were a sneaker head, these are good. The backs are fresh.
But the reason we post these, is that if you go to 248 Fillmore right now, there is a similar look at the Open Office we noticed this morning… interesting.
This goes for men and women. You can never go wrong with this shoe. In any color. In any year. The Nike Air Jordan 1 retro will always be in style and look good. Yes, women, too. HUF will have these on Saturday, June 19. We posted some other new things at UPSEEN today, so check those out.
