In Store Now | Miansai

This fall has been pretty exciting for us as one our favorite brands, Miansai, is now in store.

Miansai is the brainchild of Michael Saiger and his “…aesthetic lies in the nexus of vintage american style, traditional craftsmanship, and old New England…the handmade designs are rustic, classic and timeless, leaving those who wear them with a reminiscent sense of youth and ageless feel.”

We couldn’t agree more. We’ve loved this brand since inception and we are proud to carry it at the store.

In Store Now | CdG Pro Leather Converse

CdG Play and Converse collobrates once again, this time with the timeless Converse Pro Model.

In both a low and high top version, these sneakers are emblazoned with the CdG Play hearts and are a bit much at first glance, but just like everything CdG, it gets better and better the more you look at them.

JanSport x Pendelton x Benny Gold

The wait is almost over. You’ve seen these all over the web and soon enough, the opportunity for you to purchase this amazing capsule collection from our friends at JanSport x Pendelton x Benny Gold will be at Threads and Needles.

For those of you who haven’t heard about it yet, this capsule collection is designed by San Francisco-based streetwear designer Benny Gold. Together with JanSport and Pendleton, they created the “Native” collection for Fall 2013. The bags are based off of the Oswego pack – with a Pendleton blanket created exclusively for the release – the Compadre, Adobe and a laptop case and an ipad case. Pendleton’s signature Native American-inspired patterned wool is featured throughout the collection.

The entirety of the JanSport x Pendleton x Benny Gold Fall 2013 “Native” collection will be available at our store on August 15th, 2013. See you soon!

In Store Now | Shwood Sunglasses

Known for their classic designs made out of not-so-classic materials, Shwood Sunglasses are upping the ante as far as sunglasses are concerned. 

Shwood’s use of universally flattering and retro vibe frames along with Carl Zeiss lens imported from Italy are the many reasons why these sunnies are so coveted. Come by the shop and try on a pair of the sunnies that are sparking curiosities.

In Store Now | Toms Sunglasses

Look good, do good.

That’s the feeling you get whenever you support a brand like Toms. Aside from having one of the best looking and comfiest shoes in the game, they are now also adding sunnies to their product line. 

Similar to their one for one model when purchasing a pair of Toms shoes, when you buy a pair of their sunglasses, Toms will guarantee prescription glasses or medical care for a person in need. Change happens with your purchase.

Fashion with compassion, you can’t get better than that.

| You Should Know | Shwood Select 2012 Video Lookbook

I’m usually not a fan of 3D. It tends to give me a headache. However, I may change my tune after seeing this video.

Our friends at Shwood created their 2012 video lookbook using a 3D technique from the early 1800’s that provides us with a cool and interesting preview of their collection, amidst the backdrop and incredible views of Oregon’s backwoods. Enjoy the video and visit the store to check out our selection of Shwood. We still have a few in stock.

In Store | Rivieras Leisure Shoes

These slip-on shoes go with basically everything (shorts, pants, birthday suit, etc.) and because they are all mesh canvas and cotton uppers, they breathe and keep your feet comfortable and cool (just like YOU!). Come by the store and we’ll help you find the right espadrilles for the summer.

Brand Spotlight | Rivieras Leisure Shoes
We ALL have worn slip-on’s at some point in our lives. Whether it was a pair that our parents put on our feet as a kid or the checkered vans slip-on that we wore during the teenage years, the slip-on shoe is just a part of us.
The Rivieras Leisure Shoe takes the slip-on that we know so well and adds a touch of classic sophistication and modern update to bring us the perfect summer shoe. The brand was created in 2009 by Dan Amzallag and Fabrizio Corveddu. Their design takes inspiration from the light-weight espadrilles shoe that was popular in the 50’s in Spain’s Costa Blanca.
Let’s not get this twisted though. These shoes are as functional as they are beautiful. The leather lined in-soles, breathable canvas and cotton mesh uppers and rubber sole make the shoe as comfortable as they are stylish.
These shoes are moving fast. Literally. We sold two as we were opening the boxes up, so come by and get your pair for that perfect Sunday stroll.
