I rarely write about movies that I like, but while exploring the Selvedge Yard I came across these 2 great images. Bullitt is one of those rare gems that I have recommended to everyone I know. Hello, Steve McQueen!!!! My god this man was hot. Ok, that aside, it takes place in one of the most beautiful cities in the world (and my current home town) with one of the most bad ass cars and bad ass car chases ever shot. If you for some reason have missed this amazing film, go rent it out and thank me later.

Marco Zamora takes inspiration from urban landscapes to create intricate images that keep your eyes moving throughout his pieces. I love the juxtaposition of the color vs. black and white along with weight of the urban landscape that his characters literally carry.
This Thursday is the opening for his show at Fecal Face Dot Gallery. Don't miss it.

I think that this is a sad first for me. Sad that it has taken me so long to post menswear. Anyway, this collection is too amazing to pass. With all that being said, check out Native Son. They also have a great video that presents their newest collection.
I recently heard about an upcoming show in San Francisco called RGBY Dreams. It's based on using the colors red; green; blue and yellow as it's analog-video inspired palette. The show is about merging clothing; sculpture and video- into a conceptual fashion show. It sounds intriguing and I highly suggest you check it out. Learn about artist Hailey Loman here and her collaborator Shemoel Recalde, from Shimomitsu here.

"Antonino D'Ambrosio's book The Making of Bitter Tears introduced me to the protest album (namesake of the book) that Johnny Cash made in the 1960s. Johnny Cash sang about the tragic Native Americans history as they suffered death, slavery, disease and war after European colonization. Listening to Johnny Cash's album inspired me to re-discover the history of the Native American struggle, which still continues today."
