J.Press, gentlemen's clothing store since 1902 teamed up with the brothers Ovadia and developed the J.Press Yorkstreet collection. A few weeks ago the first York Street Store opened it's doors @ Bleecker Street with next door neighbors like Gant Rugger & Brooks Brothers Black Fleece. The store has a lot of heritage and links with the Ivy League background of J.Press, with "Handsome Dan" the Yale bulldog as mascot. (pics via flickr & selectism)

Some 10 years ago a Dutch guy named Gerard Backx moved to the Southern France and founded a denim brand called Atelier LaDurance. I'm not sure if he named his brand after the river la Durance which runs in that area. Being out of the picture for some season the brand is back on the shelves, still having it's DNA - The big square flap pockets, cross stitching, and the vichy pocket lining are just a few of the details that define Atelier LaDurance.
The three founders Stefan Kudla (left), Sascha Kampmeyer (middle) and Tobias Pflug (right) aren’t father and sons.
The Founding Fathers of Vater&Sohn opened their store on March 1st in Hamburg, Germany with a great selection of brands like Tricker's, Rising Sun & Co., Levi's Vintage, Red Wing Shoes, and Filson. Vater&Sohn consider their customers not just as someone who loves boots or denims; he’s also into everything from knives to soaps, coffee to schnaps, and he likes to take care of himself while looking sharp. He’s a family man who brings flowers for his beautiful wife, and why not get the flowers from Vater&Sohn while you’re picking up a new pair of jeans – maybe then she won’t complain so much about all the money you spent.
