Published: Mon Oct 25 2010

Where are you at the moment and what are you doing?

At home, working on the SS11 collection.

What was the last piece of music you listened to?

Dennis Wilson, River Song

What was the last item of clothing you picked up?

A vintage D Pocket Buco J 24, Peters Mountain Works side pack

What are you wearing right now?

Toys McCoy USAAF sweatpants, vintage 70s Snoopy t shirt

What was the last moment of inspiration you experienced?

Yesterday, looking at Rin Tanaka’s My Freedamn 3. Amazing book that proves they don’t make’em like they used to!

If you could be another person from history, who would that be and why?

J.E.B Stuart, an officer from Virginia and a Confederate States Army general during the American Civil War. Jeb was a cavalry commander known for his cavalier image (red-lined gray cape, yellow sash, hat cocked to the side with a peacock feather, red flower in his lapel), he inspired Southern morale, basically looked great and was a ruthless tactical genius.

What keeps you awake at night?

Heritage Research

How do you relax?

I surf when I can and play in a bluegrass band.

What can we expect from you in the future? 

Attention to detail, exploration of styles, bigger collection.
