DATE: March 14, 2014 by Mitch de Vries Tags: Tenue de Nimes, Jeans, Workwear, Red Wing Shoe Store Amsterdam, Red Wing Shoes, Engineer
It is just so incredible to see how the motorcycle culture has adopted old workwear and brought it back to a functional meaning. In the past century old workwear has evolved into casual lifestyle wear, except in the world of motorcycling. This short film is a beautiful example of it. Here we have Todd Blubaugh, an excellent photographer,... Read more +

Once again we find ourselves looking at a short film starring loads of motorcycles. Completely in awe were we after watching this film. Truly inspiring, the sense of liberty and spirituality is beautifully captured. It makes one want a motorcycle of its own and roam the world on such a forceful machine.

We do not know how many miles the average postman walks in a year or so. What we do know is that I can not think of many professions that might pass more miles. Logically then, a Postman should require not just a decent pair of shoes, but a pair of shoes with extraordinary quality... Read more +

City of Shadows

DATE: February 11, 2014 by Mitch de Vries Tags: 1920s, American heritage, Inspiration, Photography, Suits, mugshots

These marvelous photographs could have been part of a series family portraits or even business portaits. On the contrary, these are all mugshots of criminals taken by the Sydney Police Department in the 1920s. Thieves, dope users, counterfeiters, drug traders, sexual offenders and the occasional murders, they are all there. It's remarkable how unique and well composed all of the crime offenders are portrayed. Judge for yourself... Read more +
