Having been introduced to the Wood Wood x Clarks Sportswear collaboration through a series of three atmospheric teaser videos, we’ve now finally got a look at the Tawyer silhouette in all its glory. Arriving with a navy and burgundy matte nubuck upper, the Wallabee-inspired silhouette features a padded collar which protects a sock-like sleeve that amps up the inner. Leather laces and heel tab bring an upscale vibe to the silhouette while referencing Wood Wood’s SS14 “Utopia” collection, and the whole package sits on a clean white sole unit.
The Tawyer is available now from Wood Wood’s online store.

It’s surprising, given the amount of backpacks out there, that not many brands actually nail this basic piece of equipment.

As the name suggests, the design sits somewhere between a pack and duffle bag, and features an internal laptop sleeve as well as many exterior pockets within it’s rugged cotton Tin Cloth construction. The metal hardware is an additional bonus.
You can find it at Nomad.

Footwear label CLAE have teamed up with apparel brand AXS Folk Technology on this fascinating collaboration. Founded by Kyle Ng — designer of Farm Tactics — AXS Folk Technology provides a modern take on the tradition of artisanal craft, an instinctive creative partner to design one of CLAE’s refined styles.
The CLAE AXS Mills combines CLAE’s popular cork-sole runner with AXS Folk Technology’s signature hand-dyed natural indigo fabrication. The result is unconventional yet functional footwear that is unique and independent, synonymous traits of two independent brands getting together to have some fun and create something wonderful.
The French Federation and the future of French football — Raphaël Varane, Blaise Matuidi, Paul Pogba, Yohan Cabaye and Mamadou Sakho — unveiled the new French national team away kit for 2014, and made their own personal pledges to make their nation proud this summer. France will compete in Brazil this year in an away uniform that combines their inherent style and flair for fashion with the best in performance innovation.
“This new away kit is unmistakably French. It is understated yet stylish and gives France a clear national identity on the pitch,” – Martin Lotti, Creative Director for Nike Football.
The “Marinière,” a classic French design motif, makes a subtle return to the away jersey in the form of a tonal grey mariner stripe. The jersey also features a new crest, inspired by the classic cockerel worn by the French team in 1958. The symbol is enlarged, freed from it’s badge, and given the space to become the ultimate symbol of national pride. The crest is meticulously embroidered and inspired by the intricate bullion technique, which lends textural interest. The new and bigger blue cockerel stands proudly alone with its elegant plume of feathers elevated. The away jersey has a stand collar, and inside the back of the neck is a small pennant featuring the red, white and blue colours of France’s tricolor flag.
Basically, it’s awesome.

2Pac was known for his music. That statement is obvious. But beyond his music – and his acting and his poetry, he was known for his trendsetting taste in streetwear.
That all came to a terrible end on September 13, 1996, in Las Vegas, when ‘Pac got shot. But what if he hadn’t, what if the world hadn’t been deprived of one of its best musicians and dressers? What would 2Pac wear if he were still alive in 2014?
For this week’s SlamXGarb, a weekly curated outfit for a diverse collection of people and events, we answer that question. See below.
The Timberland “40 Below” Super Boot
Back in November 2013, Timberland updated the “40 Below” Super Boot that 2Pac made famous in 1992′s Juice. The label got A$AP Rocky to promote the newest iteration of the classic footgear. But if 2Pac were still alive today, he could and probably would have done that himself.
The UNDFTD Arc Zip Hoody
When 2Pac died, the East and West Coast were still in the thick of their not-liking-eachother thing. It’s hard to tell whether Shakur, had he lived, would have eventually gotten over that beef, but if he wanted to go all-made-in-LA, he could start with one of the modern versions of his staple hoodies from UNDFTD.
The Public School Quilted Biker Vest
2Pac loved his leather vests; he basically made them ok for streetwear kids to rock. No one makes leather vests like NYC’s Public School, and though he’d have to cheat on his West Coast labels to get one, maybe he would.
The John Elliott Co+ Quilted Escobar Sweatpants
The fit may have changed since 2Pac’s day, but the sweatpants is as much a staple of streetwear as ever. 2Pac would probably have gotten himself a pair of John Elliott + Co‘s tapered-leg Escobar pants.
The Stampd Black And White Bandana
‘Pac could have kept his West Coast label-repping going with one of Stampd LA’s clean bandanas. The headgear was as much a part of any 2Pac outfit as anything else.
The Jewelry By Guillermo Andrade of 424 On Fairfax
No one knows how to deck out LA’s most fashionable people in vintage and new jewelry like Guillermo Andrade. If 2Pac were alive today, he’d without question be involved with Mr. Andrade and his 424 On Fairfax label.
