New York-based haberdasher Todd Snyder has teamed with perennial luggage purveyor Globe-Trotter to release the above two-part collection. In using Globe-Trotter’s revered English atelier, the American brand chose to reimagine an ageless design in the carry-on trolley and briefcase with a lightweight vulcanized fiberboard material, leather trims, chrome details and fabric lining. Each piece appears elegantly masculine with its simple, boxy shape and top-notch materials arranged by expert craftsmen. Be on the lookout for the Todd Snyder x Globe-Trotter collection to hit exclusively at Todd Snyder Townhouse in Tokyo.

Produced from 1966 to approximately 1984, Rolex‘s 5513 Matte Dial Submariner with its no-date watchface is well-known to collectors. The nuanced past of the ref. 5513 is host to many interesting anecdotes, whether the various shifts and changes made to the fonts and text, or the fact that the dial eventually switched from meters-first to feet-first, the smallest differences from one 5513 to another could make the difference between a $5,000 watch and a $50,000 watch. As the watch is no longer in production today, archival 5513 editions still provide a helpful reference in respect to today’s Submariner iterations. You can read even more on this incredible watch over at HODINKEE.

Celebrated British artist Damien Hirst is set to open his own gallery in a street-length space on Newport Street in Lambeth, London. Slated to open in 2015, the gallery will display Hirst’s 2,000-piece art collection, which includes works by the likes of Francis Bacon, Jeff Koons and Banksy to name a few. It will also serve as an office space for Hirst, who currently has a studio on the same street and was quoted in The Observer in 2012 as saying, “It’s a place to show my collection of contemporary art. It feels bad having it all in crates.” Stay tuned for more information when the space opens in May 2015.

Finding a real friend in a modern world is difficult, a soul mate is nearly impossible, and its even harder in a clothing/fashion industry; I have found this post from the man behind The Armoury Hong Kong (he is soon leaving for his better future), to his mate’s birthday, its touching. They are one of the most talented gentlemen in the menswear industry currently. We certainly need more good people like these.
Tomorrow is Totore’s birthday, and there a few people I love more than this man. Seven months my junior, born a world away, he is anyway my brother.
I have inhabited a world of late where those I am closest to, those I most want to support, have gone out of their way to make me feel unworthy, a lesser man for not being as perfect, for not being one of the beautiful people. The industry we work in is hard - it is vain, narcissistic, cliquey, quick to pass judgement, yet throughout it all, I have known few as loyal as Toto, nobody quicker to give me words of encouragement, a stick to beat those black dogs away.
So on his birthday, I wish I was in Napoli to treat this man to dinner, to remind him that more than talent, more than chance, his dedication to his work has made him someone exceptional. If nothing more, it has made him my brother, although I know it has made him much more than that.
Totore - I will eat a burger for you tomorrow, with extra mayo, and look forward to seeing you again soon. Happy birthday, mio fratello.

It’s no small secret that Beats by Dre is one of the hottest companies on the market today, if not evidenced by myriads of wearers and World Cup spots then certainly by its recent purchase. This kind of popularity also made it one of the hottest places to work in its native Culver City, California, which was the chief problem in creating the brand’s workspace. A company that strives to embody its diverse brand image, co-founder Jimmy Lovine was hands-on in the development process with Bestor Architecture – who by the end of it had miraculously changed a plan for 75 people to accommodate 650 employees. The present 3-part headquarters has luxury in spades, devoting an entire building to social interactions with a mixing studio, café, gym, and swing space.

Notorious entertainment news company TMZ recently had their Los Angeles headquarters reworked by fellow Californians Rapt Studio. With the intention of resembling an empty warehouse space through the use of plywood, corrugated metal and concrete, a pseudo-industrial feel is created for the space. The center of the TMZ workspace is of course the 9,000-square-foot newsroom from which Harvey Levin orchestrates. Interestingly enough, these latest imagery provide some insight into the origins of TMZ’s namesake – for those who may not have known, the abbreviation is a reference to the studio zone, also known as the thirty-mile zone.
