Rewind: SWEAR Airs

Black Milk blue galaxy leggings

Hooray for making shit up as you go along.  Just making days up will-nilly. Alright, the need for a custom blog design is becoming more apparent.  Bare with me for a bit longer.  Meanwhile, the onslaught of SWEARS continues.  Yes, I think I pretty much have every pic of SWEARS currently on the internet, as well as many gleaned from years of ebay and a few too many hours on the Internet Wayback Machine.  It […]

Rewind: SWEAR Jetty

SWEAR Jetty 01 white 1

I suspect that SWEAR Jettys may be the originators of the whole “fluffy” trend (ie faux fur leggings/boots/bootcovers).  While Elsa Schiaparelli predated them by about 60 years with her monkey fur boots.  But I doubt those ever made it to a rave.  I’d like to know when the Jettys were first produced and if anything similar was made before.

Fast Forward: Gareth Pugh AW 2008

[Ed. note – i’m sick so not much commentary this week.  Sorry ] “Sometime during the genesis of this collection, the Wizard of Oz bumped into Predator” (style.com) Holy shit Style.com, I can’t think of a more appropriate stylistic description.  Well played. [Another ed. note.  Not so well played style.com, you have the worst photos of this collection online.  You might as well have your editor just write prose than use this photographer.]     […]

Happy NYE!!!

Well this was quite the year in terms of personal development.  Still a ways to go, particularly professionally and financially, but I’m looking forward to the new year  as I’ve worked very very hard to build a stable foundation for myself.  Off to a jungle party tonight, then likely to the CoZo and a proper catch up with my old crew.  Believe it or not, in oh 14 years of partying, mostly in the GTA, […]

Rewind: SWEAR Street Mix

SWEAR Street Mix 07 e

SHOE PORN.  More to come  I think I literally pulled every picture of SWEARS off the internet.  EVERY PICTURE.  The Street Mixes personally aren’t my favourite style of SWEARS but they were immensely popular.  I think the Camo SMs are the best of the bunch.

Chanel platform sneakers

If I had massive amounts of disposable income, all my debts paid, and everything else i’ve ever wanted bought and paid for, I might buy these just for the novelty.  Still doesn’t quite cut the mustard, but nice try Karl.
