Carhartt in Japan


My friend Eden just hipped me to this feature on Honeyee; a click-through introduction of Carhartt’s line in Japan. Those jeans on page two have been on my body for months, literally. People are starting to look at me weird.

Regarding Carhartt, here’s an interesting piece by Jeff Staple highlighting brands that aren’t quite as cool in the US as they are overseas.

Marc Ecko Jeff Staple Interview 1-2-1

Jeff Staple has an interview series going on called 1-2-1 for URB magazine. So far there are two interviews on his youtube page, one with famed DJ/whatever you can imagine Bobbito Garcia and the other with Mark Echo. The Bobbito interview is great, but I’ve always been fascinated with Marc Ecko because of how big he has built his brands. His Wikipedia page states that his companies sold approximately $1 billion in 2004 and it’s just crazy to see how much he has branched out… And the dude is only 37. The interviews are pretty quick and definitely only touch on a few subjects, but I’m really digging who photography in the main focus rather than video. It also doesn’t hurt that the photos were taken by Dorothy Hong
