London ~ East End in Two Days

P7085245Love these low desert boots w/ the binding of wax or whatever. His short sleeved sweatshirts pretty rad too. He is siting outside the Albam shop which was a new to me really cool shop. Nice oxford banded collar pop-over shirts..
P7085276A new Grenson shop with a cool staff. I just found this article and y’all should really appreciate it!
P7085264Can’t remember dudes name right this second! Matthew?P7085261So sick.
P7085262My favourite. The Casper.
P7085270A Custy.
P7085315Different than the gal in Wiliamsburg or San Francisco in the same polka dotted blouse and cut-offs.
P7085346Hostem has got to be one of the coolest shops in London right now. Like many I saw, they kept the old exterior or made it look old…
P7095391Just some of the brands they carry.P7085371Labour And Wait. One of the coolest shops in za vorld right now. they even have their own section at Dover Street Market. They sell kitchen supplies along with Musc from Portugal and Face Cream for the gals. Both come in the same packaging it has been in since the 30’s.
P7085372Another beautiful building.
P7095453The only way to display shirts. At The New Republic this is what the shirts were displayed in. I will have one in my shop one day.
P7095529In case you thought I was no longer shooting older dudes who stay killing it. The guy on the steps is here to remind you..
P7095544Said his inspiration is all Jerry Garcia. Saw dude outside Levisons on Cheshire Street. Really great 2nd hand mens shop. For a more wordy description check acl.
P7095556A few great short sleeved Levi’s work shirts. Not insanely vintage but insanely good.. Not just because I work here but because s/s work shirts are kinda good.
P7095559I’ve always been a fan of sammy scarves. I wont get into the history of them..that the mods popularized them, but I been collecting them for years. It always amazes me to find so many in one store.. Long story short, the best scarf to wear all year indoor or out.P7095618Some hipness in them streets. But a good look, not mad. At least in London when its summer you can actually wear wool cap and not look stupid. ITS NOT AS HOT AS SAY WILLIAMSBURG where you’ll look like a fool in that cap in the summer heat.
P7105764A store I have covered here before but as it’s my favourite shop in London, and it’s been 2 yrs since I’ve been. I’ll share. Not alot has changed which is a good thing.
P7105804Some silk robes at their shop across the way which only sells pajamas, robes & ties.

Fruition ~ An Oasis In The Desert

P1250662What you are gazing at is probably all sold by now. I have way too many photos in my bank, I’m rich there… and share what I’m in the mood of. Sorry if I teased you, they have tons more!
I shared with you a taste of their designer assortment… What I didnt realy touch on is their extensive collection of deadstock and worn sportswear or streetwear from Supreme, Stussy and many other legendary brands! They also have the friendliest staff of any young retailer. I hear they are opening a 2nd store, great news.
