Fashion Fridays: Clarks x Staple

Words by Jah Banks

STAPLE-CLARKS-SPORTSWEAR-TAWYER-PACK

There aren’t many footwear labels out there as timeless as Clarks. Founded in Britain during the 19th century, the company has weathered through generations of change and trends, while still maintaining a devotion to their iconic boot styles and silhouettes. One style in particular that transcended into the fashion and pop culture world a long time ago is the Wallabee. The list of musicians who have penned a tune referencing the popular “cheesebottoms” is countless: Slick Rick, SuperCat, Rick Ross, WuTang, Vybz Kartel and Popcaan just to name a few. This fall, Clarks is giving us something new to talk about as they introduce their latest collaboration, with NYC-based streetwear brand, Staple.

The late Ras Daniel Hartman is the definitive illustrator of the Rastafari experience, known for his much-copied charcoal and pencil drawings like “Prince Emanuel” (sometimes called “Original Rasta Baby”). You may also have seen Hartman, who passed away in Tanzania in 1990 two years after his repatriation to Africa, as Pedro, Ivanhoe Martin’s best friend in The Harder They Come. When selecting our lists of 50 Great Jamaicans and 10 Jamaican Visual Artists You Should Know Hartman was a “must.”

Fashion Fridays: Burberry’s Fall 2014 Line Includes A Mesh Marina

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Burberry-Fall-2014-Mesh-Tank

Scroll through the advertisements in the latest issue of your favorite fashion magazine, and you might find a familiar object in an unfamiliar place: Specifically, the mesh marina in Burberry’s autumn/winter 2014 men’s line. The mesh tank is a staple in Burberry’s native England, where it’s better known as a string vest, but it has long been associated with working-class slobs, thanks to depictions like Andy Capp and Ras C. Nesbitt. Could its place in a collection from one of the country’s most iconic luxury brands have anything to do with Jamaica, where the undergarment has been re-purposed as a rude-boy fashion staple? We think so.
