Craft L.A. Just a great shop

I was pretty mad when my friend Peter told me he was moving to LA, after him pleading with me to come out there, I finally paid a visit and glad I did. All the years of us chatting about Balenciaga, Alden and Turnbull are finally paying off…
When they broke down the walls, they found this really old graffiti on the bricks. Im glad they left it exposed like they did. Its not in your face- you sorta have to almost look for it..
The shop has an incredible selection of vintage shoes, boots and outerwear to compliment the new pieces by Left Field, Alden, Sugar Cane and soon to come shirts by MISTER MORT.
Love a short sleeve sweatshirt, this vintage joint is no exception !
PLease click on this here military shirt jacket and see enlarged
Run by Peter, his Lady Rosa and vintage expert Bill;is this truly magnificent shop. Really a comfortable shopping atmosphere, in fact, you only get spoken to if you so desire, otherwise help yourself! No salesman following you from item to item lecturing you about the designer and all that bullshit. Just quality garments and shoes and good conversation. To borrow from a recent write-up on hyrcollective.com – http://www.hyrcollective.com/daily-blog/2009/05/craft-la/
The space is really nice and open, clean with a emphasis on reused wood and steel for the fixtures and quality on the clothing. Michael Williams wrote a great piece on Craft for GQ’s blog as well

I was honoured when shutterbug William Gentle wrote me asking if we could work together. I was not yet familiar with his website and after checking it out,i obliged. He choses people for their individual style and has them chose looks and heads to a location he seeks out. I have worked with other shooters and have never felt so at ease with a photographer. Lets not kid, Im no model; but I like the way these turned out. Check out his work after i toot my own horn below
