Carhartt WIP: Designer Streetwear with Workwear Roots

We’re excited that Nordstrom now offers Carhartt Work in Progress, one of the foundational streetwear brands going back to the 1990s. Our selection includes classic Carhartt WIP items like the coach’s jacket, shirt jacket and anorak, plus other subtly branded basics—all perfect for your fall/winter wardrobe.

We invite you to consider the brand below, and for bonus fashion knowledge, to read the essay “Put to Work,” from the amazing book The Carhartt WIP Archives (Rizzoli, 2016) – the essay is by Gary Warnett, whose blog we read on the reg. Should be interesting for anyone remotely interested in streetwear and workwear.

Big Facts with Luka Sabbat

Luka Sabbat has taken the fashion world by storm these past few years as a model, stylist, tastemaker and all-around creative person. So it wasn’t enough for us to simply shoot photos for our men’s trend campaign. We had to sit down with the man and have a proper conversation.

Read our interview to find out his views on the title “influencer” (often used to describe him), what he’s listening to, his emerging brand/not-brand Hot Mess and where he sees himself at 40 years old—which still seems light years away when you’re 19.

Men’s Style Trends with Kelly Oubre, Jr.

If you followed @nordstrommen during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, you know pro basketball player Kelly Oubre, Jr., took over our Insta story for a day. Sitting front row at several shows, he seemed to have the time of his life.

Check our brief Q&A below where Oubre basically breaks down how to dress like him. Which you might want to consider at least in part: he’s got great style.

What’s Possible in Stretch Jeans?

The question is what’s not possible? You can do anything in stretch denim. PAIGE jeans are especially known for looking great while feeling pretty much like sweatpants. The brand is all about modern style combined with fabric innovation for comfort and flexibility.

That balance reaches a new level in TRANSCEND, the PAIGE collection that gets its stretch from a deft use of rayon and will never lose shape.

In the video below, see four guys test these jeans’ flexibility to the max.

The Big Ideas of NYFW:M, with Buying Director Jorge Valls

Now that New York Fashion Week: Men’s is over, let’s break it down. What was it? What did it all mean?

But first check out these bosses: That’s our men’s buying director Jorge Valls on the left with Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA, the organizer of NYFW:M. Twice a year, these men work together to bring you the future of fashion.

And spring 2018, the season that just showed, was exciting for several reasons—not least of which is that it will hit the floor at the same time as we open our first standalone men’s store in Manhattan.

What will that moment in men’s fashion look like? Here are Jorge’s major takeaways after seeing collections from many of the hottest brands on the planet.

Barena SS 18 Selections and Impromptu Showroom Modeling

Barena is the worn-in Italian brand you should wear if it’s starting to make you self-conscious when teenagers compliment your style. Should you grow up? Yeah.

Have you considered: soft tailoring? In the words of Barena creative director Massimo Pigozzo:

“Soft tailoring is important. It allows you to dress elegantly without being formal and allows you to dress informally without being sporty. There is also tailoring that is not necessarily tight but has a softer edge, for example we also use very stiff fabrics like heavy Melton wool but with super light shapes.”–as told to Jake Gallagher for the blog A Continuous Lean

We visited the Barena showroom with our buyers in New York during NYFW:M—you can see men’s designer buyer Dan Drewes above, selecting our spring/summer 2018 order.

To give you a sense of how Barena hangs, we also shot a few looks on our model friend Mayan Rajendran:

George Heaton talks Represent SS 18, Winston Churchill and British Manufacturing

One of the big retail success stories in recent years is Represent, the British-made brand founded by brothers George and Mike Heaton. Their SS 18 collection at NYFW:M  was a little bit streetwear, a little bit athleisure and very wearable, while conveying a certain toughness in the wearer.

The show had an almost Roman arena quality, with stomping feet coming through the speakers. There was a clear feeling of British strength in the building. We spoke to George after the show about that.

And while it doesn’t relate to anything, really, we just want to throw this out there: George’s watch and necklace contained hypnotizing universes of diamonds. Respect.
