Conceived to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Italian street culture mainstay Slam Jam, the second delivery of the 25 piece Slam Jam x Carhartt WIP 2015 spring collaboration has arrived. Dubbed “Denim,” the release celebrates Carhartt’s denim heritage, and reinterprets classic workwear silhouettes with modern riffs. Crafted under the direction of British designer Andrew Bunney, the Denim Line consists of a rigid paisley-lined denim coat, a rinsed shirt, pants, a reversible bucket hat, and simple tote bag. Check out some of the offerings above and look for the collection at selected stockists such as the HYPEBEAST Store.
25 Biographies Every Man Should Read

Berlin-based Solebox is widely revered for the inspired stories that align with their highly celebrated sneaker collaborations. Filled with purpose, sentiment and conviction, they bring that meaningful commitment to stories to their latest offering, the Solebox x PUMA XS850 “Adventurer Pack.” This two-piece collection is centered around brand co-founder Himket and his travels to the states – in which a unique print was inspired that can be found at the heel of each shoe. The first pair takes to an offsetting toe in grey, while the remainder of the silhouette highlights a black base over a white midsole. Its counterpart, however, opts for a more monotone aesthetic in grey with synthetic suede and neoprene mesh construction. Look for this collaborative collection to release sometime in late May.

Comfort and function has never alluded New Balance and their storied roster of silhouettes. In fact, much of what they does based on those two foundational components, in addition to minimal styling amplified by plush fabrication and unique color concepts. The budding New Balance “District Weekend” Collection keys on each of those core principles while equally drawing steam from the classic weekender bag. Consisting of the 574 ($ 200), 990 ($ 240), and 996 ($ 220), each silo comes infused with a mesh and suede blend married to premium Horween leather accents.
Constructed with the utmost craftsmanship while resting atop a cushion centric EVA midsole, the tricolored New Balance “District Weekend” Collection is available now at Feature.
