WEEKEND W’MENSWEAR

WEEKEND W’MENSWEAR

Here at Ponytail Journal we love mixing the new with the old. It’s how we believe that we humans move forward in the Universe, how new things are conjured up from our subconscious and how art mirrors our existence. Today we’ve put together one of our classic looks for the weekend so that you can get some of our w’menswear juju yourself.

MOMENTS.

Not so long ago we styled a little w’menswear piece with our pal Christopher Wadsworth for L’Optimum magazine. He has beautifully shot this short for the project and it’s basically a wink to the in between moments that we seem to pass by in life. Enough said.

PAPA NUI SAYS … WHAT INSPIRES A VINTAGE BREATHING AUSSIE.

John Tesoriero lives and breathes our fundamental values about living the funnest life possible, and creating things that speak to quality, functionality, and heritage. His blog "Papa Nui Says ..." is dedicated to military, surfing, form and function, a great resource for people like us who have a passion for greatness through history. ’Oh yeah he makes beautiful things like military wear and post-war engineered surf boards so we asked him about life.

WHEN ATELIER DE L’ARMEE CAPTURED THAT SWEET SPOT IN THE UNIVERSE.

WHEN ATELIER DE L’ARMEE CAPTURED THAT SWEET SPOT IN THE UNIVERSE.

There can’t be yin without yang too far away. Elza and Joost of Atelier de l’Armee are the breed of folk who enjoy well made objects that tests the truth of time, and the pockets of fun that inspire us in life. We ’expound’ on how it takes a highly evolved human - or a fine match between two (sometimes opposing) minds - to produce a product that speaks to people today while referencing greatness through history.
MATTHEW DOLAN MADE A NEW FLAVOUR FOR GALS LIKE US.

MATTHEW DOLAN MADE A NEW FLAVOUR FOR GALS LIKE US.

Matthew Dolan made a new food-group everyone. He shredded his classic American sandwich up into strips, wove it into a rainbow cake and when you bite into it, you burp unicorns while farting sparkles. The sum of its parts made a whole new thing. It’s workwear for women at its highest evolution.
