"Form Follow Function", a phrase which became famous for the modernist architecture movement. "form•function•form" simplifies the phrase, and makes it cyclical, Form follows Function follow Form. form•function•form appreciates, uses and creates pieces that is functional. Their products are mainly Leather goods, made by hand in Florida, USA, with the highest grade components and materials like Horween leather and U.S. Made sailing & fishing equipment. I think it's right that some said that their products are aesthetically pleasing and well-made. 

So far, they has created bracelets, a button stud shell watchband (such a great alternative to the common watch band or straps), spoor key fob and architect's wallet. All are beautiful. Let's take a look.

It's not everyday that we see a good pair of sneaker from the denim brand, Levi's. They are usually an ugly looking shoe mostly inspired by converse or diesel. But recently, Hypebeast has given us shots of what Levi's Japan has come up with. A vulcanized sneaker with two tone hue which is a washed denim and a dyed suede, plus a zipper on the back. The shoe will be available in select stores and unfortunately this would be available mostly in Japan.

Wallace & Barnes

Couple weeks ago while browsing through J.Crew, I found this Wallace & Barnes collection, and i really dig the Arrow Shirt & the Wayland Denim Tote Bag. Read the details below.

"A new collection of old favorites, built using the foundations of traditional workwear, vintage military uniforms and classic outdoor gear as our guide. We borrowed this print from a vintage bandana our menswear designer scored during a trip to a Montana dude ranch, then recast it in Big Sky-inspired indigo-like blues. To achieve maximum softness and bring out its workhorse roots, each shirt is subjected to two hours of stonewashing, then topped off with hardy Corozo buttons (derived from a palm plant and renowned for their durability and ivory-like look)."

"Using the same design as the Wayland canvas tote, we thought why not make one using our ultra-sturdy Japanese selvedge denim. A bit more nautically inspired than the canvas tote, it calls to mind seamen's ditty bags from the '40s. With contrast stitching and plenty of room for a day's leave, this carryall is handmade in L.A. one at a time with obsessive attention to detail and craftsmanship. A truly heirloom-quality bag you'll only find at Wallace & Barnes. Japanese selvedge denim with exposed selvedge along top interior band. Heavy canvas drop handles. Tactical black Scovill snap closure. Tiered interior wall patch pocket. Exterior Scovill snap closure pockets on side panels. Leather reinforcement at hardware. Twill taped interior seams. USA. 9 1/2" handle drop."

Not surprising, cause they are known as one of the best when looking for a good vintage style sports apparel, and they have been around since the 80s and their replica of vintage sports goods are exceptional. But you know, there are actually some other vendors that makes a good vintage style ball cap, and one of them is Fair Ends. In fact, recently Hickoree's Hard Goods has released their Ball Cap that are made by Fair Ends. The Ball Cap is made using unstructured wool twill body accented with wool felt "H" stitched to the front of the cap. The ball cap is available in several colorways, which you can check it out below.
