The upcoming WTAPS drop accounts for the 11th installment in the 1460 Remastered series, as it ultimately celebrates the two brands’ shared utilitarian and rebellious heritage.

WTAPS brings an unmistakable military edge to the 1460 Remastered, implementing buckle fastenings in place of laces. The boot is also equipped with a standout silver steel toe cap boasting “WT” branding. Another focal design element is the coordinates of WTAPS’ Tokyo-based store debossed across the quarter panel, a first for any Dr. Martens release.

You can get a detailed look at the WTAPS x Dr. Martens 1460 Remastered via the galleries above and below, ahead of the November 28 launch.

A Breakdown of Each Sneaker From Jordan Brand Spring 2021

Air Jordan 1 University Blue

Jordan Brand just unveiled its Spring 2021 retro sneaker releases, providing us with a taste of what’s to come in the new year.

Consisting of fresh iterations of the Air Jordan 1, 4, and 5, among others, in addition to three new women’s exclusives, including the first-ever women’s Air Jordan 9, the collection will begin to release in January 2021 on Nike SNKRS. Below, we take a look at each sneaker from the collection, detailing all you need to know about the individual offerings.

One of — if not the — clear standout from the Spring 2021 Jordan Brand collection is this UNC-themed Air Jordan 1. The 1s feature familiar colors but a fresh scheme, as University Blue leather appears on the ankle, heel, toe, and outsole; white appears on the quarter panel, midsole, tongue, and toe box; and black appears on the Swoosh and collar. The sneaker is marked with a black Wings logo with University Blue branding on the tongue.

The second Spring 2021 Air Jordan 1 Retro Hi OG incorporates multiple design elements from previous Air Jordan 1 models. The most noteworthy aspects include foldable eyelet flaps, exposed foam on the tongue with a reversed tongue tag and tri-tonal color-blocking of Volt, University Gold, and Sail, all harkening back to Jordan 1s of the past.

This women’s Air Jordan 1 flips the “Gold Toe” version of the silhouette, opting for “crinkle” silver in place of patent gold. The colorway, which is inspired by space innovation and the future of flight, pairs genuine black leather overlays on the toe, tongue, and collar with a white quarter panel and midsole, and crinkle silver details on the ankle, heel, and toe box. The sneaker will be available in both women’s and men’s sizes.

This particular Air Jordan 3 Retro is releasing for the first time since 2007. With Sport Red and Orange Peel details on the tongue, eyelets, Air bag, and heel tab, the sneaker boasts true-to-form coloring and upgraded materials including a genuine leather upper, elephant print overlays on the forefoot and heel, and a matte-finished midsole. It will be available in sizes for the entire family.

Another favorite from the upcoming spring collection, the UNC-flavored Air Jordan 4 combines premium materials with a classic Jumpman color scheme. The sneaker welcomes University Blue genuine suede leather on the upper, OG mesh netting on the quarter panel and tongue bottom with cement splatter on the midsole, heel tabs, and wings. It is completed with a woven jock tag on the tongue. The Spring 2021 Air Jordan 4 Retro comes in new packaging, available in men’s and grade school sizing.

This women’s-exclusive Air Jordan 4 is a nod to the strength and beauty of the technical materials used in spacesuits. The black and Starfish Orange metallic mesh on the upper is complemented by matte TPU heel tabs and wings. Elsewhere, black mesh netting is found on the quarter panel and tongue bottom, while touches of orange appear on the toe and heel of the rubber outsole.

An evolution of the Air Jordan 5 Stealth from 2006, this retro Air Jordan 5 has an all-white genuine leather upper, OG silver reflective tongue, midsole with blue splatter finish, and blue lace toggle and sockliner. It comes in new packaging, available in sizes for the entire family.

This Air Jordan 5 celebrates the iconic textural elements of the silhouette, albeit in different areas of the shoe. The OG reflective material typically found on the tongue upper now appears on the quarter panel and tongue bottom, for example. The sneaker is predominantly constructed from suede leather and textile materials, and features translucent elements, a splatter finish on the midsole, and “23” branding on the heel. It will be available in men’s and grade school sizing.

The first-ever women’s Air Jordan 9, this particular sneaker references Michael Jordan’s global impact and influence, as the phrase “Change the World” has been applied to the heel loop. The sneaker then features unique color schemes on each shoe and is made using vegetable-tanned materials and natural plant-based dyes.

The second Spring 2021 Air Jordan 9 boasts a more subdued colorway, pairing black and charcoal genuine nubuck leather with hits of University Gold on the sockliner and branding on the midsole, tongue, and heel. It will be available in sizes for the entire family.

This retro Air Jordan 13 incorporates touches of Starfish Orange, a color that is rooted in recent Jordan Brand history. The sneaker features a white genuine quilted leather upper, the familiar panther paw-like outsole, a carbon fiber shank plate, and the holographic cat’s eye. It comes in OG packaging and will be available in sizes for the entire family.

You’ve Seen ‘The Queen’s Gambit’, Now Here Are Some Actual Chess Sets

chess sets image

If you haven’t already started, completed, or been told by multiple people that you simply have to watch The Queen’s Gambit then what have you actually been doing over the past month? Not only has The Queen’s Gambit offered up some serious ‘60s looks, but it seems to be the only show people are talking about right now. And with a lockdown holiday approaching, both the producers of the show and producers of chess sets of any sort will be thanking their lucky stars that we’ll likely all be succumbing to the perfect storm of quarantine boredom and a new-found urge to play chess.

While muttering “checkmate” is a flex in itself, we’re hoping to beat our challengers on a board that we’re proud of. So, covering design from Keith Haring to a Man Ray-inspired board, these are the best chess sets around. Make sure your chosen battlefield is one you’re fond of because, if you’re like us, you might be looking at it for quite a long time over the coming month or so.

London’s varied skyline forms the pieces of this set while the Thames snakes across the middle of the board. With townhouses as the pawns and skyscrapers playing the more important roles, this set embodies the UK capital’s architecture. Queue evil laugh as you play god and move the London Eye around.

William & Son coat a reversible backgammon and chessboard with leather and a smooth, gray-tone color palette to round out a strong, Art Deco style. Flat pieces work for both games and mean that this one’s easy to pack away when not in use.

The late, legendary Keith Haring honed his style from the simplicity of street-art. One of the most recognizable hands in modern art, his figures make the perfect substitute for the classic chess set up. It might take you a little while to get used to what’s what but once you have, this is one of the best-looking boards around — so good, in fact, that even when you’re not playing it should be on display.

Who doesn’t love New York? This clean chess set from Ian Flood and Chris Prosser celebrates the spiky realness of the Big Apple’s unmistakable skyline from the Guggenheim to the Empire State Building. Perhaps not a great choice for those with small children but then again, which chess set is?

Dada icon Man Ray created this classic chess set with objects he found around his Paris studio. From simple spherical pawns to a flowing violin finial as the knight, this wooden chess set epitomizes the resourceful, highly original approach that made Man Ray such a seminal figure in 20th-century art.

Why Have One Jacket When You Can Have One of These Combo Coats

combination coats

The Highsnobiety Winter Wardrobe Manual is a guide to dressing well when temperatures plummet. Expect big coats, padded pants, snug accessories, and hibernation-ready homeware.

When it comes to fall and winter outerwear, the combo coat is a gift from above. While this time of year usually means trawling the net to find several coats specifically made for one or another scenario, the combination coat ushers in a new level of versatility. Uniting multiple jackets as one, from reversible options to detachable liners via insulating down and waterproof layers, the combo coat means you only need one coat for the rest of the year.

The best bit is that while you’ll be supplementing your wardrobe with more than one piece, you don’t have to pay for it. Consider it the Trojan horse of coats — masquerading as one item when it comes to first-glance style and price, but offering so much more. From adidas COLD.RDY to Burberry, here are the best combo coats for seeing out the rest of 2020 in.

We’ve seen detachable hoods, base layers, gloves, even trousers, but detachable forearms is a new one. Brain Dead’s pastel, color-blocked Mirco Jacket pulls it off with chutzpah, though. This padded number quickly transforms into a warm indoor topper at the zip of an arm.

Arnar Mar Jonsson is the fledgling, London-based label that’s actively taking over the world of techwear. Combining washed-out palettes with technical prowess, Arnar Mar Jonsson is as memorable as it is effective. This lightweight, reversible jacket boasts the brand’s signature earth-tone palette while blocked panels bring another powerful visual element.

It might not be Burberry’s classic check, but this tartan motif is just as eye-catching. Having walked this season’s runway for the label, the Tartan Down Jacket has been on our minds for a while thanks to its detachable hood and massive front pockets.

Forgoing technical, detachable layers for downright visual identity, the Levi’s Type 3 Reversible Jacket comes as a two-for-one package with a very punchy, all-over zebra print to one side.

With COLD.RDY, adidas updates classic silhouettes and drops a handful of new products which are all specced up for the colder months. This down parka comes in two sections: a high-loft down parka forms the base for an overlay jacket that adds weather protection and a unique aesthetic.

A.A. Spectrum takes inspiration from traditional Asian silhouettes for the Mandarin Puffer Jacket. This collarless, shawl-like jacket features dropped shoulders for a draping look. Technical satin converse both sides of this reversible piece with a Thinsulate lining.

One side gives off vintage, Americana vibes with patches and exaggerated striped pockets while the other side of the visvim liner takes a much more refined tack with technical satin. Hypnotic stuff from visvim, as expected.

We love earth tones, you probably know that by now, so this double-sided White Mountaineering offer gets our vote twice. Brown to one side and beige to the other, a feather-down lining ensures White Mountaineering’s second-to-none outdoor expertise.

Inside Icebox: Hip-Hop’s Favorite Jewelry Store

In “Lil Baby & Gunna Go Quarantine Shopping!,” Gunna visibily grins beneath a face mask as he tries on a bedazzling necklace while a jeweler named Zahir stands in front of him. “Y’all remember when I was broke?” he asks Zahir, looking around the Icebox Jewelry store as he removes the heavy necklace and laughs. The expensive piece bounces in mid-air. “I love watching where I came from, and you just never forget. That’s how you just hold onto it.” A picture of him with Quavo, Offset, and others from a while ago is shown on screen to showcase his growth. He’s no longer at the edge of the circle while his rich friends buy jewelry, he’s at the center now.

Since the days of Run-DMC’s gigantic Dookie chains, rap has had a torrid romance with fine jewelery. Artists love to show off the fruits of their labor with spectacularly designed necklaces, watches, and rings, giving them a sense of wealth and superiority that then drives the content of their music. Because of this, rappers have great relationships with individual jewelers who provide them with pieces which go on to become hallmarks of hip-hop culture.

Icebox is the jewelry store of the new generation, not only because of its popularity with the chart-topping rappers of an unprecedented scale, but also because of its one-of-a-kind approach to showcasing what these lyricists buy. The store has a YouTube channel with 864,000 subscribers featuring videos of Lil Baby, NLE Choppa, Lil Yachty, Swae Lee, and just about every other rapper that you can think of having fun at the store while getting custom necklaces made. Rappers love to show this stuff off, of course, but in an age where fans are more connected with their favorite artists than ever, the ability to accompany them on trips to buy new jewelry has made Icebox the most intriguing new industry-adjacent business in recent memory.

But YouTube videos and Instagram posts of what rappers buy can only tell so much about Icebox’s story… Highsnobiety sat down with one of its jewelers, Mo Jooma, for a firsthand account of the store and its success.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CGX_-WFJLW9/

In 1976. It’s the year that our father, Mike, entered the jewelry industry. Four years later, our mother, Dinar, migrated from Pakistan to join him. They started with nothing, selling sterling silver in flea markets, sleeping in their car and driving across America in pursuit of the “dream.”

My brothers Rafi, Zahir, and I literally grew up in our family’s jewelry stores. We worked long hours with our parents, seven days a week, from open to close. Before we could tie our shoelaces together, we knew how to clean jewelry for clients, change watch batteries, and we could help the goldsmiths solder gold chains or size a ring. Icebox, the iteration that you know of today, opened in Buckhead, Atlanta in 2009.

I wouldn’t call it a rebranding so much as an evolution. From the beginning of Icebox, we have always been focused on men’s fine jewelry. Today, there is a direct correlation between our growth and the growth of hip-hop music. It is the new pop. Our evolution is interchangeable with the growth of the genre; we are heavily invested in social media and digital content. Our clients are increasingly asking for the finest quality, finest materials, and most sophisticated design. We stay one step ahead, setting the trends and establishing what’s hot in jewelry.

One of our first major clients, who is a very good friend and who we still work with today, was T-Pain. He was the first person to trust us with large, detailed designs before we ever made pieces like we do today. He lives in Atlanta and still comes by for holiday shopping. We will always value him as one of our most important clients because he trusted us so many years ago.

I can tell you with confidence, because we have spent a long time refining our process and our people, we have the best jewelry engineering team, tools, and technique in the world. Our team is capable of making literally anything in diamonds and gold. Our process starts with the customer’s idea and then it goes through our design department. Once the design is finalized it goes into the engineering stage and several more steps before it goes to the production team to be completed. Because our team is so skilled, we finish most items in roughly four weeks.

The outside world thinks that all of our business comes from entertainers because of what they hear and see online, but we have tons of “regular” clients; business owners and wealthy people who come from all over the world. If I had to estimate, I would say about one third of our business comes from actors, athletes, and musicians.

A commitment to quality, advancement in technology, customer service, and never letting fans of our brand down, and by releasing exciting products all the time. Our executive team is constantly reevaluating the brand and finding better ways to bring Icebox to our clients and fans.

Our volume has increased considerably because, for the most part, our city was one of the first to be fully open. We have had that advantage to put in 100% of our time in the office while others can’t. There is a whole new client base that already knows of and admires Icebox that now visits Atlanta to come see us. The people who are not traveling as much, going out to eat or to the clubs, are purchasing Icebox pieces from our website or over the phone. They are buying luxury goods as an investment.

To be perfectly honest, we have lots of high spenders. If you’ve visited our YouTube channel or if you follow us on Instagram you’ll regularly see our clients dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars. We’ve sold a handful of individual pieces in the 7-figure price range. I’m also not afraid to say we have dozens of local clients who regularly spend well over a million a year, year after year.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CFPl978JxbR/

Our brand, our story, and our clients are all really compelling. So as you can imagine, we get lots of offers for reality TV shows, especially in this day and age when reality content is king. We’ve had meetings in LA where networks bid against each other for the rights to our show. Ultimately, we didn’t like the terms and we didn’t want to give full control to a production company. They wanted every episode to be a manufactured story and we believe the key is to be totally authentic. We decided to do everything ourselves, in house, and we’re very satisfied with our product. We own the content on our YouTube channel and we don’t have to “act.” It’s all raw, authentic, and unscripted and our viewers get to see exactly what happens daily at Icebox.

Humans are naturally voyeuristic and there is something extremely satisfying in watching your favorite celebrities spend insane amounts of money. We’re really the first retail brand in the world to offer that experience; there is no luxury brand consistently letting you watch some of the biggest celebrities in the world spend their money. It’s revolutionary, and we have heard from large retailers that have taken an extreme interest in our strategy and several who have tried to emulate it.

Icebox will never leave Atlanta, because this is home. Atlanta is an integral part of our brand identity. We love this city; we are part of its fabric and it is part of our fabric. Relocating is out of the question, but we will definitely be expanding and preparing to be all over the world. We do have a serious plan to open in several new markets and we’re the type of family who doesn’t talk about our next move. So when we do open our new boutiques, the whole world will know.

Louis Vuitton’s New Tambour Timepiece Has Virgil Written All Over It

Visit the original post to see all 4 images from this gallery.

The new version of Louis Vuitton’s emblematic Tambour watch is inspired by the House’s iconic Damier Graphite canvas, but Virgil Abloh’s influence is hard to miss, given the familiar combination of fluorescent green and black.

LV eschews its minimalist approach this time around, opting for an athletic colorway that evokes Abloh’s bold menswear designs. The black strap arrives with eye-catching green accents, and can be swapped out for an even bolder green version. These same green hues appear on the dial.

The Gaston-Louis Vuitton’s V signature enlightens the entire dial, adding a modern twist. The Graphite Damier pattern also appears on the dial, below the indices and the hands. The case, meanwhile, is crafted from graphite-black PVD with a smoked gray sapphire case back.

The sporty, casual new watches are available as a 41.5 mm diameter automatic and 46 mm diameter chronograph on Louis Vuitton’s website, with prices starting at $5,750.
