Fioroni Fall/Winter 2012 just took everything you thought you knew about cardigans and told it to fuck off.

Detachable, lightweight nylon inner on the gnarliest cashmere zipper cardigan you’ve ever seen, with leather detailing and a lined hood to top it off. Only like 1,500 euros, but come on, this is nothing for peasants to mess with.

GRAIL SIGTHING: Every once in a while, you see a look that is pretty average, but it includes a piece of clothing that exhibits a detail or characteristic to which you are deeply drawn. This is one of those looks, and this blazer is one of those pieces. I am a big fan of green and blue, and I am also a huge fan of windowpane check. That being said, I freaked a little bit when I saw this blazer. I need to figure out who makes this masterpiece.

Black/Navy Reversible Cotton and Leather Bomber from Balenciaga.

The diagonal button stance on the collar is the perfect detail.

The coolest blazer/jawn you’ll see for a real long time.

Commonwealth Proper has some samples in, and this completely unstructured blazer is one of them. The blazer is made from linen, with linen/cotton lapel padding, suede elbow patches, and MOP buttons. The craziest thing about it is the pockets though. Slanted patch pockets… Slanted patch pockets……. SlLANTED patch pockets. I tried this thing on yesterday, and it is literally the perfect piece of casual tailored clothing. In case you couldn’t decipher, I am in love.

Craig was some sort of mad scientist on this one, and it came out beautifully.

The North Face Purple Label 65/35 Mountain Pullover Jacket. If this cotton/polyester blend wasn’t only available in Japan, it would be mine. Almost grail status here.

I don’t always want to cop 8oz. Denim, Tibetan monk inspired, belted, contrast-lapel(?), cardigan-type jawnz, but when I do, It’s probably by Visvim.

This isn’t the kind of thing that I usually post, but bare with me here. You may enjoy this if you’re one of those jawnz addicts.

This could be the coolest piece of clothing that I own, and by far the most unique garment to hit your dashboard today. This is my Nike FIT white camo quarter zip. It has an upper arm zipper pocket, and is stamped with the PRE LIVES on the back neck. For those of you that don’t know, Steve “Pre” Prefontaine is a legendary American olympic track star, born in Oregon (Nike’s home state). Nike did a limited edition campaign in memory of Pre.

Why so special you ask? What if I told you this is a prototype garment?

Yeah.

To the best of my knowledge (and I’ve done some research), this is one of a very small number (if not the only one) of these in existence. The garment was produced in a dark gray and green, but I haven’t found any trace of a white ever being made. I have a relative who works for Nike, and by some crazy chain of events, I ended up with this a few years ago. I just wanted to share a unique piece of clothing with you guys, even if it’s not what I normally wear.

I’m not the most knowledgeable on the subject, so if anyone wants to call me out on this, please do.

Anonymous asked: Define jawn?

All you need to know:

History of the term “jawnz”: 

"Jawn" has always been used as a substitute for the word "thing". It’s been used forever. Way back to the days of the Mayans. "Jawn" translates to "object" in the Mayan language. The word retained its sole meaning until the mid 1800’s.

It was during this time (approx. 1858) that Abraham Lincoln forged the first pair of selvedge jeans out of a raw denim American flag, because he was a great patriot and tired of the low-quality denim found at department stores. He termed them “Jawnz”, a mixture of “Jawn” and “Jeans”. 

The Jawnz War (or Civil War as some now call it) started because of a dispute dealing with the cuffing of jeans. The South believed that jeans should never be cuffed, and the North believed it was up to the individual to decide the way his or her jeans were styled at the ankle. Needless to say, the North was victorious, and the citizens of our country now wear jeans both cuffed and uncuffed. 

After Lincoln’s assasination, the production of jawnz sky rocketed, and by the early 1900’s there were so many cheap imitations of true jawnz that people were being locked up for fake claims of “producing next-level shit”.

It was during these dark days that the “Four Run” was assembled. It was a coalition of four of the greatest male sartorial minds of the time, Winston Churchill, Albert Einstein, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Teddy Roosevelt, dedicated to finding and attaining the most sacred of “next-level jawnz”. The “four” men would talk and “run” messages and ideas back and forth. Due to different dictions and verbal inflections, the name “Four Run” was shortened. The term “Forum” had been born.

 Throughout the rest of the century, forums started in taverns, speakeasies, sheds, houses, storefronts, and basically anywhere men could stop to talk about their newly copped jawnz. The internet was created to share information and pictures depicting newly crafted jawnz. Everyone knew they had to have pics, or it didn’t happen. This way, they could share their jawnz and attain credibility, leading to “internet fame”.

 We now speak of “Jawnz” as any high-fashion, next-level, well-made, game-changing, highly desired piece of clothing or accessory. Jawnz give the wearer a type of super power, an edge on any other male and instant tractor beam to #menswear bloggeurs.

The Four Run once spoke of a “grail”, a jawn so powerful, it could start wars and end nations. It is the secret dream of any #menswear blogger to find the grail, although many doubt its existence. A select few believe it is in the possession of the Illuminati. 

I am glad you asked this question.
