AN OLD SKOOL AUSTIN OUTING WITH VANS AND MOSCOT June 24 2016
On what felt like the hottest day of the Summer so far, James and I went to Peter Pan Mini Golf, an ever endearing Austin landmark. The idea was to take shots of some of our new arrivals from a few classic brands, Vans and MOSCOT, in one of our favorite, classic locations.
We also went there to stake out the terrain for a future fashion show. That's all we'll say right now about that...
Anyhow, we got our tickets, golf balls, clubs and set out on our sunny Summer Solstice adventure.
Old Skool (Canvas) - classic white
The Old Skool lives on! This Vans classic skate shoe and first to bare the iconic side "jazz stripe," is a low top lace-up with sturdy canvas uppers, re-enforced toecaps to withstand repeated wear, signature rubber waffle outsoles, and padded collars for support and flexibility. The Old Skool represents timeless skate style with durability that keeps on giving. And they are vegan, which is unusual for the Old Skool style which usually features a leather padded collar and toe cap.
Old Skool - chestnut/true white
Old Skool - midnight navy/true white
Old Skool (Canvas) - brindle
MOSCOT in their (un)natural habitat
Service Menswear is one of the few places where you can get MOSCOT frames in the great state of Texas.
MOSCOT is a New York City Institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear. MOSCOT is known for combining refined, downtown aesthetic with nearly 100 years of eyewear expertise and unparalleled craftsmanship to create its eyewear. While now recognized as a global fashion brand, MOSCOT remains, at heart, a neighborhood optical shop, which I can and will personally attest to.
Lemtoshes (the style we took out to the green) are round, bold, nerdy, and have served creative, thoughtful, free-spirited intellectuals and artistés like Buddy Holly and Truman Capote, to name a few.
Lemtosh - blonde/green
Lemtosh - brown ash/brown
Lemtosh - tort/green
The Slip-Ons on the slide.
Last but not least, we have two Vans Slip-Ons in stock.
Forty years after its inception Vans had started to produce pattern number 48, the Classic Slip-On. The black pair that we have in stock features a low profile, a slip-on canvas upper with elastic side accents, the Vans flag label and Vans original waffle outsole.
The Oxford & Leather Slip-On 59 is a little different as it features low profile slip-on uppers made with textile and leather detailing. It also includes padded collars, elastic side accents, and the signature rubber waffle outsoles.
Slip-On 59 (Oxford Cloth/Leather) - blue/true white
