is j.w. anderson and grindr on brand?

Collaborations are a beautiful thing that births fresh ideas. There's the high-low designer collaborations that should inevitably die soon to it being so passe. Then there's two of my favourite food groups, pizza and poutine providing all the nutrients in one caloric meal. There was also the very short-lived, premature ejaculation that was Mr. Porter x The Fat Jewish and due to really good P.R., it slowly slipped away under our feet.

Currently, I am confounded by the amalgamation that is Grindr x J.W. Anderson for London Collections: Men. Everyone is talking about it, but no one is talking about it.

new year, new denim, still single

Over the past couple of years, I have been championing trousers for some time now in lieu of the hoopla that is traditional denim. Denim was pedestrian. It was mundane, monotonous. It comes in a plethora of washes and what have you, but it was not much of a conversation piece at last night's New Years dinner party that consisted of convenient store snacks.

But wait, a denim renaissance!
