The Craft and the Makers

craftmakers.jpg

Though the world has been obsessed with what the best developers can make with a line of code, there has been a major resurgence in what you can build with your bare hands. Gestalten takes a look those talented individuals with their upcoming book, The Craft and the Makers:

"Craftsmanship is in more demand than ever and small manufacturers are experiencing an overwhelming renaissance. We are increasingly looking for products that last and have their own histories; things that meld form, function, and emotion into a compelling entity. This desire will continue to shape our attitudes toward consumer and luxury goods as well as innovation for the foreseeable future. Today, there are already many people who are not concerned with a logo, chasing the next trend, or contributing to a disposable society. They would rather seek objects of real value and own things with which they can truly identify.

The Craft and the Makers showcases savvy businesses that are choosing to focus on craftsmanship and aiming to create things with a soul. A decisive role is played by melding tradition and innovation--from the raw materials used to the finished product. The book introduces small enterprises as well as the personalities that drive them. These artisans are using their skills to produce handicraft that meets the highest standards. Whether furniture, porcelain, or leather goods, all of the products featured here offer today's true luxury: the perfect fusion of creativity and craftsmanship that results in quality and durability. Reflecting this spirit, every page is a testament to the products created with heart that are much more than a sum of their parts."

If you're an athlete you probably already know that there aren't a whole lot of great suiting options for more muscular builds and the ones that are available aren't exactly flattering. J.Crew has come to the rescue with a new suit called the Crosby.

It's everything that's great about their popular Ludlow suiting with a fit that's more in tune broader physiques. They've strategically added room in all the important areas adding more width in the shoulders, chest, and arms and more room in the seat, legs, and thigh. The fit and finish is still maintained with all their premium fabric options and a flattering cut that is up there with the best that Saville Row has to offer.

The watch comes in a brushed black 38mm case which is quite refreshing after it seemed like the trend of manhole-sized monsters wouldn't never end. It also has a sapphire crystal face and features a black NATO with black hardware, and day and date functionality.
