Northern Grade, the American-made menswear pop-up market, will be setting up shop this weekend in collaboration with GQ in Brooklyn at The Powerhouse Arena. I've been to Northern Grade pop-ups in L.A. and Chicago and I always discovered a great label or met an inspirational artisan and been able to talk with the faces behind a favorite brand. It's technically a menswear event, but there's plenty on offer in the way of tomboy style and I've always walked away with something really special. If I was able to hop a plane to NYC, my eyes would be on these items:
Pierrepont Hicks women's suede Loafer Camp Moc ($225); Fellow Barber brass fish hook key fob ($35); Almond Surfboards screen-printed Guide to Fins poster ($45); Brass and powder coated bowl from Askov Finlyason ($87); Billy Reid cordovan leather tote ($450); Art + Survival's Shuron Sidewinder sunglasses ($250); Fischer Clothing 18-inch sqaure Dobby Stripe Ben neckerchief/pocket square ($20).
Also this weekend: Parachute Market in downtown L.A.
The Gentlewoman just keeps getting better, their 9th issue is on stands now.
The best socks for long flights.
