IMAGE FEED #1: for the guys

I wanted to start doing a series of posts that were just like streams of visual info. I spend way too much time image-hunting so I have a lot to share. I'm not the best at keeping track of my sources or even what some of these things are, I'd be so appreciative if you shared with me!

I'm kind of playing visual leap-frog here, bear with me.
The first image feed post is for the guys. I don't post enough menswear here so I figure it's time for something like this.

Above three from unknown sources?

The Stone Roses, obsessed with picture #1

A friend showed me this picture and told me that Jiro Shirasu was the first person in Japan to allow himself to be photographed wearing blue jeans.

From Levi's Vintage Clothing's lookbook-another obsession, check it out at this great blog here


Bowie, Bowie, Bowie as Andy Warhol in Basquiat

Mick & Bianca Jagger

OBSESSED with Walter Lockwood's Sukiyaki Western series-quote from Lockwood: 

"This series expands on the work of the postmodern Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone who re-interpreted the idea of the American western film. By appropriating from Akira Kurosawas's Yojimbo and American western films, Leone used an international cast and shot in locations such as Spain to depict the wild American west. My re-interpretation of the Spaghetti Western as Sukiyaki Western points to media and culture in our postmodern world quickly and constantly consuming one another, re-creating itself anew in the process. By constructing images that cast Asian actors as Cowboys/Gunslingers from a Leone film, and staging my scenes in Pioneertown, California, I am bringing the appropriations cycle full circle and constructing a hybrid of Eastern and Western values and popular iconography that dissolves societal, racial and cultural boundaries."

Number (N)ine's final collection. R.I.P.

This was from Margiela shoot...I got it at tFS and can't remember what it was but I love the attitude here.

I know I post Japan a lot on both of my blogs. Sorry. Watch any of their videos post '79, ridiculously good 80's style.

Expect more image feeds in the near future. Hope you enjoyed.

Dear Jane,
speaking of menswear you might like one of my closest soul friend Bri's style. a video of him here: http://www.yoannlemoine.com/video.php?id=NYS1

You should check out the taste of tea, for some more tadanobu asano, and general heartwarming Japanese absurdity. Just a choice scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCIDdyzJnp8

But a really, truly beautiful japanese movie you should see is Tony Takitani.

Just some preparation for your trip to Japan ;)

After working in the mens department in bloomingdales i've become obsessed with menswear. i don't even like the women's clothes we carry compared to the neat stuff we got for guys.

These photos are cool. I like The Man Who Fell To Earth Bowie. That was an interesting movie.

Stone Roses, Bowie as Warhol, and Ichi the Killer, plus I love that Lockwood quote. Can't get much better than this, will have to show this to my husband immediately, he will appreciate it.

I zip to your blog and Mr. Best-Thing-Since-Jesus pops up! Spectacular! And the Bowie photo under his Rock Hall of Fame picture is to die for!! I love the menswear slant; the David Bowie part is especially fine. Fantastic blog!!

Ichi the Killer/Tadanobu Asano is the AWESOMEST! (^o^)

Please keep the feeds coming! Can't get enough of Bowie either... So ethereal and androgynous. The Man Who Fell To Earth indeed. He is not of this world, I swear.

Though I must say I am taken aback by the final collection part... Takahiro Miyashita is seriously not continuing Number(N)ine? (o_o)

Photo of SCHC

I'm a male regular reader of your blog (I guess Kanye West is to hey?? haha) And I want you to know I really enjoyed this post. These images are great, classic, and inspiring, and very interesting too. I also love all of the Japanese inspiration. I do street fashion inspired illustrations, and Japanese street fashion and style in general is always a big inspiration for me. The pics of Yohji Yamamoto are great too! Thanks for thinking of your other readers.
