Very nice photography from a man called Bill Gentle. He started in June 2008 and began to photograph friends and people that he would meet around his home in Brooklyn, NY. Bill wanted to record interesting people, show their style, and check out what trends were developing. Capture the ways in which people adapt to the cultural influences around them. Inspiring pictures, below a selection. Check out his website for yourself! Keep on going Bill!

A couple of weeks ago I posted my vintage Levi’s ‘Big E’ Trucker Jacket from the ’60′s. It is a great item with handpainted colored buttons. This inspired Dre Tolson from California (U.S.A.) to do the same with his vintage Levi’s ‘Big E’ Trucker jacket. He found this vintage jacket from 1969 on a local flea market and cut off the sleeves as they hadn’t any cuffs anymore. I think the result is really nice, it’s a personal touch at this classic jacket. Check out the process from Drew below. Thanks for sharing and it’s great to hear that my old jacket inspired you.

Cone Mills Denim has been a leading supplier of denim fabrics for top denim apparel brands since 1891. In 1905 under Proximity Manufacturing Company the Cone brothers built White Oak Cotton Mills in Greensboro. By 1908 it was the world’s largest producer of denim. The heavy-duty blue denim manufactured by the mills gave them the reputation of being ”the Denim King”. The company has produced the denim fabric for Levi Strauss since 1915. They are the exclusive supplier in recent years of the fabric for Levi’s brand 501 jeans. Still most of the denim lovers love the great fabrics which are coming from the legendary Cone Mills factory from the U.S.A.
