Manila's got thrift? Oh yes, oh yes to my recent acquisition of a 70's vintage Wilsons House of Suede leather jacket. Hard find, easy fit, blazer style, rusted red, pin tuck detailing, and an unlit phillip morris fag in the right pocket to make it that much more badass. For some reason Ian Curtis came to mind. What is it about an unyielding gaze and first hand smoke that alludes a sense of 'cool'. I'm not a nicotine fiend, but if I had my pick I go with the gg kretek. Smoke and leather, get it on, get it on..
It looks like Polaroid is re-releasing the Color 600 Instant Film, along with a new modernized version of the classic camera. The film supposedly vibes with the old and the new, and will be at arm's length later in the year. Time to stow away the digi, and rekindle a bit of that candid. I can't wait to dust off my old polar, to merely hear that sexy ringing sound of instant development. Just remember, you only get one shot.
