Two years ago I bought a pair of vintage camo pants and took them to my tailor to get altered. Slimed down the legs, added elastic cuffs and added a draw string to the waist band. Within a week I got more compliments on my pants than anything I have ever worn (including footwear). People wanted them. Badly. The first camo pant from Red Label was the first real apparel piece I worked on. I was super proud of the fit and although there are a million changes I would have made to that pant today, it was a great starting point. Fast forward two years, the line has grown exponentially. No restraints, no pressure, no quotas and no help. The Mercer pant took 6 months to perfect. I wanted to create a classic that can stand alone for a decade. A pant that can be worn at anytime to fit any look day or night. Production hasn’t been easy. I’m used to working with billion dollar companies that have the best manufacturing capabilities in the world so when I started producing things myself it was a light slap in the face. It took two years for me to really understand how the apparel business works and now I’m proud to have a creative director and a product manager that have helped direct the brand. Paying attention to details is always most important and I’m excited to see how you guys will react to some of the pieces that are coming. Kith will continue to push the envelope and I appreciate all the support we’ve been getting since day 1. The project that has taken most of my time for the last 6 months is dropping soon. White Label Chapter 2. Stay tuned.

- Just Us.

Two years ago almost every person around me asked why I would get into apparel design. My answer was simple, the challenge. I love to create and the feeling of accomplishment is greater when working uphill. The projects and collaborations coming this year are the result of hard work and no sleep, something Mr. Mcnairy is very familiar with. This collaboration with Mark will change the game, the main reason we got together in the first place. Stay tuned.

I’ve never been to Pittsburgh so when I got the phone call about the Invigorate Your Sole Lecture at Carnegie Mellon University, I was excited to get on board. I’m still not sure on how I feel about speaking engagements, I don’t believe I have accomplished half of what my goals are so it’s a little weird for me. The truth is, I don’t believe I’m doing anything that others can’t do. All it took was work and dedication. Come see on Monday to hear more about the process and how to get it going in this industry. Seats are limited, be sure to RSVP at http://on.fb.me/XZUjNX.

United Arrows’ Beauty & Youth has teamed up with New Balance to bring the “Beauty & Youth” 1700. An upper made almost entirely of rich navy suede with a mesh vamp, the sneaker features textural and tonal contrasts with hits of 3M and tan leather. The cream leather lining plays off the grooved midsole with hits of navy all around. A graphic collage inspired sock liner commemorates the collaboration. The limited collaborative sneaker is available now for $160 at Kith Manhattan and KithNYC.com.

Winter is right around the corner, so it’s only right to drop my second installment of my Fall/Holiday Sebago line. The Iriquois draws inspiration from my previous model the Odanak, with a toughened exterior for the winter months. The black version boasts a premium smooth leather, while the brown is made of oily chestnut suede. Both boots are leather lined and are hand made in the Dominican Republic. Both styles also include the detachable fringe collar, and a Vibram sole to match up well with the season. 96 paris produced in both colors will be available this Friday, November 25th at 11am Est. for $160 at our Brooklyn location, New York location, and Ronniefieg.com

If you’re someone who really cares about how your footwear is made and concerned with the quality (raises hand), look no further than Ralph Lauren’s Fall/Winter line. All pieces are made in the USA with the most premium materials and craftsmanship. All angles are covered from the shearling lined Downshire and Ashridge boots, the casual look of the Valton and Derrance, or the wool shafted Venedict boot. All of which are great looks for the upcoming months and are true investments. These boots are made for a lifetime. Be sure to check them out on KithNyc.
