Burton Presents..

It is always tough to let summer go. I’m still lamenting the fact the it is officially over. But nothing gets me in the mood for the colder weather like a good snowboarding vid. Burton had some very good timing when they dropped this gem in my inbox earlier this week. Watch Ethan Driss and Zak Hale shred, below:

New Hood, New Good

I have been in my new hood for one month now. One of the best things about moving to a new neighborhood is exploring and finding all of your new go-to spots. I’m very much enjoying that process.

House of Gant

2015-shotbyjake.com-9995

Even though I haven’t been shooting as much fashion lately, I didn’t want to completely sit out on this round of NYFW. Last week I popped by GANT’s S/S 2016 presentation. I have a thing for labels that steer clear of using shock in an attempt to create buzz. It seems like NYFW has been becoming more carnival-esqe with each successive season.

I appreciated the lack of theatrics at the GANT presentation. The collections (they showed 3: GANT Originals, Rugger and Diamond G) were equally pleasing. Nothing wacky, no shock factor. Lots of solids and conservative cuts. Totally my jam. Here are some of my favorite looks.

Leica Q

Leica-Q-Head-Gear-Patrol-Slide-4

 

I had a bit of envy last week as I was perusing the pages of Gear Patrol. Envy is not an uncommon reaction when I look at that site because so much of the content is right up my alley, and my friends are the ones creating it. The instance that I’m specifically referring to is when I came across this review of the new Leica Q. My comrade Henry lugged one along with him on a trip that the GP folks did to Wyoming. From the feedback that Henry provided, I’m ready to trade in the Fujifilm X100s and put the dollars towards the Q. Or better yet, maybe someone could just get me one for my birthday 😉 Peep the rest of the images and full review over here.

Beachy Vibes

This is the part of the Jersey shore that Snooki has never been to. No boardwalks, no biker gangs– this is Beach Haven.
