High-end menswear designer Todd Snyder New York will open West Thu, 11 Aug 2022 19:25:07 +0000

Hayes Valley is about to get a new source of high-end menswear. Chic menswear designer Todd Snyder New York will occupy the vacant space at Laguna and Hayes streets. The SF Business Times reports that the high-end fashion brand is leasing the retail location at 590 Hayes Street, which was once occupied by b8ta. The San Francisco-based electronics retailer closed all of its US outlets in February due to repeated break-ins and thefts, as reported by Hoodline.

The Hayes Valley Todd Snyder store in New York will be the brand’s second store on the West Coast and is expected to serve as the flagship location for the West. This summer, the chain is also preparing to open more of an outlet-style outlet at The Grove in Los Angeles. Todd Snyder has six stores in New York and Connecticut. The New York flagship store is actually the brand’s second store to open. The Tribeca store is known as Todd Snyder at the Liquor Store after the brand took over the store from J.Crew three years ago.

Todd Snyder’s road to New York’s fashion mecca didn’t start in a fashion-friendly neighborhood. He grew up in Huxley, Iowa, which has a population of about 3,500. He graduated from Iowa State University in 1992, then moved to the Big Apple, where he worked for fashion staples like Polo Ralph Lauren, Gap and J.Crew. He left J.Crew in 2011 to create the Todd Snyder New York label.

The Todd Snyder New York website describes where the founder gets inspiration for his products. “He infused his love for New York City into the DNA of the Todd Snyder brand, redefining how modern American men can present themselves to the world in stylish and unexpected ways. From bespoke tailoring to innovative capsule collections, Todd’s designs show that good style can be accessible and even playful.

It’s not yet known when the Hayes Valley location will open, but we expect the space to have some sleek new design elements. According to the SF Business Times, “London-based retail architect Th3 Standard is designing tenant improvements worth an estimated $200,000.”

BUFFALO, NY – We’re celebrating Western New York with a barber who drives across the United States in his RV to provide free haircuts to anyone in need.

This week, he’s done dozens of haircuts at Buffalo City Mission.

Now he’s on a roll traveling across the country in his RV visiting 17 states so far since October 2020.

“Here, yesterday was our first day here. We had twenty haircuts, eleven beard cuts,” said Irvin Russell Pelton, Jr.

We met Irvin at the Buffalo City Mission.

“It’s a blessing to be able to do this because of all the wonderful people I meet and, you know, I say I travel volunteering to help people, but actually they help me, you know , “said Irvin Russell Pelton, Jr.

No questions asked, anyone can get a haircut.

“Whether man, woman or child, they sit here, they feel comfortable and they say things that they won’t tell their own family, you know? And again, I consider that a blessing for me, my friends and my family because I have a lot of friends and family who help me support this mission or this adventure, whatever you call it,” said Irvin Russell Pelton, Jr.

Irvin has been a barber for 44 years. He started in Detroit and his mission to serve others by meeting basic needs took him everywhere.

“Last week I was cutting hair in a parking lot. It was hot. This week we’re in a little hair salon in Buffalo City Mission. You know? Praise the Lord. And that’s America. I can do it in the trash. I can do it here. It doesn’t matter,” said Irvin Russell Pelton, Jr.

California was Irvin’s first stop of 2020, and with 33 more states to go, Hawaii, his home state, will be his last.

Irvin will be back at the Buffalo City Mission next week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone is welcome to come in during these times for a haircut.

Posted on Aug 10, 2022 by Sam Anderson

The Rocky Mountain Tech Collection releases today with three new MTB jersey options, plus a hoodie, pair of shorts, and bib liners for both men and women.

Rocky Mountain says the “featherweight” jerseys “look like AC” and implement antimicrobial fabrics and ventilation to stay cool. Meanwhile, the subtle hoodie aims to help you stay comfortable on the trail this fall and look great while you sip a beer afterwards.

The shorts seek to stay lightweight, suitable for casual lunchtime hikes – or pair with bib liners for longer rides. And the bib itself features a mountain bike-specific chamois and silicone grip.

Plus, every outerwear entry gets a safety boost with RECCO integration, which helps rescue teams find injured or unfit cyclists faster without adding extra weight or bulk.

Here are the takeaways from the mountain-focused Rocky Mountain technical collection.

Air Supply 90s, Nelson 70s and Slab City 70s jerseys

  • Rocky Mountain’s lightest jersey “for sweltering days on the trail” (claimed).
  • Ventilated and lightweight recycled polyester to facilitate air circulation and moisture movement.
  • Relaxed but trail-specific construction and shape, such as a slightly longer cut at the back of the waist, reinforced seams and high-wear areas.
  • Antimicrobial fabric treatment fights odors.
  • Variety of options in short and long sleeves, solid colors or with graphics.
  • The built-in emergency ID tag doubles as a goggle wiper.
  • Integrated RECCO reflector.
  • MSRP: CA$75-90 / US$65-80.

Espresso 90 Hoodie

  • The Polartec Power Air fabric incorporates internal threads to create air pockets that trap body heat. It aims to keep body heat in and cold air out.
  • Longer back hem.
  • Full length zipper.

  • Rocky Mountain’s “first all-mountain shorts” sit just below the knees.
  • Lumbar storage area features micromesh to combat soaking: slash pockets and zipped phone pocket.
  • Pass-through area on right thigh provides access to liner pockets (and Darkside bib liner thigh pockets).
  • DWR treatment.
  • Integrated RECCO reflector.
  • MSRP: CA$190 / US$155.

Darkside bib liner

  • Seamless flat straps.
  • Silicone gripper to keep it tight.
  • Thigh pockets, accessible through the Legend 90 Short grommet.
  • MSRP: CA$150 / US$120.

RECCO rescue technology

RECCO works by launching a radar beam from a rescue personnel’s detector. It works like a flashlight beam, and when it hits the RECCO reflector inside your clothes, it immediately bounces back. From there, whoever holds the detector enters.

Special Rakhi: threads of love set with diamonds | fashion trends Wed, 10 Aug 2022 14:03:21 +0000

Since the sacred thread of rakhi got a makeover, the trend has only increased. Also this year, some of the country’s top jewelry brands have launched special edition rakhis and bracelets for Raksha Bandhan in diamonds and gemstones set in yellow and white gold.

Rohan Sharma, managing director of RK Jewelers, attributes the rise to an increase in demand for men’s jewelry. “The increase in purchasing power is another reason. We have always made gold rakhis, but this year the demand has doubled from pre-Covid numbers. We sold around 30-32 gold rakhis in 2019 while sales have already exceeded 50 this year,” Sharma explains. In addition to gold ones, they also receive orders for diamond rakhis. The most expensive Rakhi in their portfolio this year is a 5.5 carat all diamond bracelet set in 18k white gold, priced at 8,000,000. Hinting at a niche market, Sharma says they also take customization options. “We have made more expensive rakhis than this; we made one for the price of 20 lakh on order in 2014,” he shares.

In keeping with the growing demand, jewelers are innovating with styles. Jammu-based Rakesh Jewelers makes unique kada style bracelets with diamonds priced between 3.5,000,000 4,000,000. “We sold 4 to 5 pieces of the kada this season.

And if you think precious rakhis only means chunky bracelets or designs, Hazoorilal Jewelers offers two contemporary styles with 18-karat diamonds set alongside black onyx stones in adjustable cord bracelets. At the price of 1.45 lakh and 1.5 lakh, these bands are a lightweight yet assertive option. “Customer preferences for fine jewelry rakhis seem to have shifted to contemporary bracelets with minimal detailing. These versatile bracelets can be worn effortlessly as an everyday accessory,” says Sonal Narang, designer at the jewellers.

More than expressing a bond of love, these rakhis are also considered an investment. Pawan Gupta of PP Jewelers by Pawan Gupta notes that there are two types of buyers for gold and diamond rakhis – one, who only sees it as a one-time wear affectionately reserved for newly married brothers and bhabhis and second, who opt for bracelets that can also be worn on other occasions. “These are tailor-made rakhis that vary between 50,000 to 5 lakh who have seen their popularity rise steadily,” he says.
