The transition from summer to autumn and winter can be a difficult one to say the least. As the sun and heat fade to make way for grey skies and colder temperatures, it’s necessary to rejig our wardrobes to accommodate for the seasonal shifts.
Some men think that the best way to land themselves on an influential street style Instagram or in a best-dressed gallery is to either pull off cutting-edge trends or wear something timeless.

Leather crafters like Jonathan Medrick are a dying breed. When Medrick opened his leather goods store, Jonathan’s Leathercraft, in 1992, he was one of many leather crafters in Marin. One by one, he’s watched them go out of business, unable to compete with China’s low prices.
Medrick, who lives above his Fairfax shop, which is tucked in a suite just off Bolinas Road, differentiated himself by making his products out of wild hides such as deer, elk and antelope. Over the years, he’s made everything from moccasins to clothing to wallets. His store also carries the work of his longtime girlfriend, Kim Whybrew, who designs and laces handbags and custom vests.

Fendi attempts to address the Italian national youth unemployment crisis by luring a new generation into becoming traditional artisans. Recent generations of Italian youth have shied away from traditional handwork. But Fendi sees craftsmanship as an answer to the country's youth unemployment crisis. They were there for an accelerated lesson in the newfangled employment potential of old-fashioned craftsmanship.
There’s a key moment in The Wild One, the 1954 youth-ploitation movie in which an outlaw biker gang runs rampant through Hicksville USA, when a starstruck girl inquires of their ringleader, an impeccably leather-jacketed, cuff-jeaned, scuff-booted, 1950s fashion icon Marlon Brando, “Hey Johnny, what are you rebelling against?”
Brando’s response, with a world-weary sigh: “What’ve you got?”
Buckle up for this year's most stylish waist management.
