WAR AND PIECES


There’s a unique new edition to the Levi’s archive care of Chuck’s Vintage in Los Angeles. This World War II era jacket was lined with a cotton flannel shirt, stitched in by hand. Made between 1942 and 1945 the jacket serves as an interesting testament to a time when food, supplies and clothing were sharply rationed. Most likely that blanket lined version just wasn’t around and this was the guys next best option for staying warm. Similarly during that time period the jeans were made with less rivets to save metal, the iconic arcuate stitching was painted on to save thread and jackets were made with out pockets to save denim.

Each month we select the best pictures our readers send us and print them here. We appreciate them all, but can’t use color prints or color negatives. We can use only good, in-focus, black and white print (any size) and color slides (either 35mm or 2 1/4 x 1/4) – nothing else. Whether it’s the exhilaration of a dude and his chick flyin’ down the highway or the let-it-all-hang-out exuberance of a biker bash or the eyeball-poppin’ sight of a sexy honey showin’ her stuff – these photos typify the fun, excitement, and freedom of biking.

WIM WENDERS’ ONCE

This is taken from one of my favorite books, Once, by German filmmaker Wim Wenders. The book pairs his photographs with short stories of his life and travels as a filmmaker. Having just moved to North Beach this one caught my eye again. If you’ve been to San Francisco you might have seen the outside of this beautiful flat iron tower pictured below. It’s now owned by filmmaker, Francis Ford Coppola.

SCENES ALONG THE ROAD

Late last summer, during a month long road trip from New England to San Francisco, Nate Bressler and I found time between the junk shops and flea markets to take some pictures of people and places we saw along the way…
