Tyler, The Creator (And Collector)

Via Robb Report

Tyler, The Creator is one eccentric individual. His music spans several genres including jazz, contemporary R&B, neo soul, alternative hip hop and that’s just to name a few. His style has also been his own, mixing in streetwear, skater vibes, golf style and even “prep”. It’s unusual to see him in something that doesn’t have a pop of color and unconventional patterns. Like I said, and eccentric individual. In a recent feature in Robb Report, we get a closer look at what exactly Tyler, The Creator collects, and more importantly, why he collects them. As you would expect, it’s kind of all over the place, but nothing out of the ordinary for the young rapper. He’s got an interesting collection of old-school cars and vintage Louis Vuitton trunks. He also seems to be keen on the analog things in life not limited to records, magazines, and of course watches. His collection of Cartier’s alone is worth checking out the recent Robb Report spread.

Noah x Barbour

Barbour jackets were seen left and right at the most recent WindUp Watch Fair in NYC. With their distinct silhouette, weathered waxed cotton fabric, and the brown corduroy collar, how could you not notice them. Barbour has recently linked up with streetwear brand, Noah, for a new line of Bedale jackets. The collaborative project uses a blend of 60% cotton and 40% nylon to capture that familiar feeling of a durable technical fabric made for the outdoors. Noah has tapped into the familiar Bedale jacket design, but injected their own panache with eight new vibrant colors of the 60/40 Bedale. The traditional wax cotton jacket is not lost within this collab. Barbour and Noah will also release a traditional waxed cotton Bedale in a duck camo design with a zip-out liner. Knowing the cachet that Barbour carries with their name, and the hype that comes along with the brand Noah, these jackets will go fast. Check out the Barbour x Noah lookbook and the entire collection here.

Gerber Center Drive Customizable Tool

We’re no strangers to pocket knives and multi-tools around the W&W office. Usually there’s always one within arms reach. Honestly, we don’t need the amount that we already have, but when brands offer up a model that has a mix of funky colors or an option to customize, it’s difficult for us not to pull out the credit card. Gerber has always had a ‘Custom’ division within their range of tools, but for the first time, they’re offering up their Center Drive Multi-tool for your customization. With the ability to choose your own tool pack, the finish, nine different colorways and an option to engrave, the combinations are endless. Now do we need another multi-tool, no? But this might be hard not to pass up.

Rumpl x Carhartt

Another collaboration! Like the Barbour x Noah collab mentioned above, the recent Rumpl x Carhartt capsule just makes sense. If you don’t recognize the Rumpl brand by name, you might have actually seen their puffy camping blankets out in the wild. The outdoor accessory company has teamed up with workwear brand, Carhartt for a capsule consisting of eight individual camping accessories – several blankets, ponchos, a pillow and a drink koozie. Check out the entire Rumpl x Carhartt collection here.


Developing Film With Beer?

If you’re an avid film shooter, then you know that developing film can get quite expensive. The actual trip to the camera store could occasionally be a hassle, especially if it’s out of the way or if life just gets too busy. I’m sure you know you can develop your film at home, but what if I told you that you can get your film processed and have happy hour at the same time? Field Mag recently published an article that goes through a step by step process that describes how to actually do this with your favorite brewski. One thing to note is that your beer needs to be at room temperature to successfully develop your film
