Architect and designer Laura Skelton makes wallets out of suits and ties that she finds in thrift stores. The outside of the necktie wallet is made of a silk tie, while the lining is a solid charcoal suit material. The suit wallet is made entirely of pinstripe suit material. And they're handmade in Pennsylvania.
Designer Kim Jones and artistic director Marc Jacobs dropped an amazing Spring 2012 collection for Louis Vuitton. Their skills--Jones is a tailoring wizard and Jacobs is...well, he's Marc Jacobs--compliment each other famously. For Jones, fresh off a multi-year stint heading up Dunhill, this marks his debut collection for L.V. and sets the bar extremely high. For more images, click the link below.
Below are some great lookbook images from Percival, a brand that designs and manufactures British-made menswear. Their third collection is their biggest to date, and is home to a varied range of outerwear, shirting, trousers, and knits. Pieces are simplistic in tailored design yet playful and ambitious in materials, color, and details. Of particular interest to you is the mac in waxed wool.
