We like the holidays around here. We really, really like the holidays. So as we get this week started, visions of canned cranberries and not-quite-traditional sing-alongs are doing the Running Man in our heads. Seriously, it’s a little distracting. Here’s what we’re looking forward to dragging out of the hall closet this weekend and plugging into the DVD player and more …

Lauren Ireland, Print Editorial Director: Music: Nick Drake’s Time of No Reply is quiet and soft—a gentle snowfall in musical form. Pinetop Seven’s Rigging the Toplights is eerie, beautiful, atmospheric; it’s just right for a hushed, wintry walk. And this sounds strange, but Black Sabbath’s eponymous album perfectly captures the winter landscape. It’s a gorgeous (if dark) cold-weather album. Books: I reread Donna Tartt’s The Secret History every winter. Its austere, mysterious atmosphere always gets me in a snowy mood. The Once and Future King is a warm, festive, fire-lit modern re-telling of the Arthurian legend. Movies: Edward Scissorhands is a spooky, quirky, wintry romance. For anyone who has seen enough of Love Actually. Finally, Scrooged. It’s exactly right for a humbug like me.

Plaid: it’s as old as the hills. But today’s best applications of ages-old tartan patterns take that traditional country club madras and your grandfather’s Sansabelts and throw a handful of future at them. Urban bravehearts hoping to steer clear of geezerville should aim for flat fronts and slim, even slightly cropped legs. And it goes without saying (but we will just in case): pair solid tops with checks, please.

Your Friday Spirit Animal

Hey, wake up. The end of the week has arrived. Here’s what English-born pop artist David Hockney has to say about the weekend: “You must plan to be spontaneous.”

Pop-In@Nordstrom Welcomes I.T: We collaborated with Hong Kong fashion collective I.T to bring menswear brands izzue, :CHOCOOLATE and Aape by A BATHING APE to the U.S. for the first time.

When our ace Pop-In Shop photo crew completed their already-ambitious shot list ahead of schedule, did they adjourn to the corner bar for self-congratulatory beers and back-pats? No. Did they snap a selfie and take a nap? No. Did they high-five in slow motion while a building exploded in the background? Probably.

But THEN, they grabbed their gear and headed outside to put in more work. Keep reading to see their full gallery of extra-credit images, shot atop undulating rooftops and on the wrong side of the tracks in SODO (that’s shorthand for ‘south of downtown’), Seattle—and don’t miss your chance to shop rare Hong Kong clothes at Pop-In@Nordstrom Welcomes I.T, through this weekend only.

Considering: Smart Slippers

Look, on days like these, even a total genius just wants to hang around the house in a pair of slippers and eat Nutella out of the jar.

Just maybe—hopefully—not those slippers.

We took the liberty of picking out a more gentlemanly pair for old EinsteinThe L.B. Evans Duke Opera. As for his choice of spreadable Italian snack food? Oh, right. That’s our choice. And we’re fine with it, thanks.

Follow Up: @IronandAir

New series! In which we hook you up with the feeds you need.

 

Ah, the open road. There’s almost nothing as attractive—especially when you’re scrolling through a smart phone app while waiting for your dental hygienist. Or your project manager. Or a stop light. Not that we condone app-surfing while engaged in the driving task but let’s just say we know from experience that it happens from time to time.

Whenever it is that you find yourself in need of a transportive fix, Iron & Air Magazine’s Instagram feed will hook it up. Gregory George Moore, Brett Houle and Adam Fitzgerald smartly repurpose and repackage great-looking original content from their Manchester, New Hampshire-based bi-monthly print and digital motorcycle lifestyle journal and serve it up in a swiftly moving stream of “bikes, autos, outdoor adventure, art, design, music and craft.” 

Should you find yourself actually transported to Iron & Air’s historical mill town home base near Boston, Moore and Fitzgerald recommend the vintage oddities at Modern Gypsy. They tell us there’s also a great speakeasy, but you’ll have to call them directly when you’re there if you want the details on that. For now, make your own martini and enjoy this brief conversation.
