Even before the movie Gangs of New York was put out, designer brothers Daniel and Michael Casarella evoked a passion for 19th century New York history. They have a remarkable personal collection of clothing and other memorabilia that dates back to that era. From that stemmed their desire to create fashion label which includes t-shirts, cut and sew pieces, as well as jewelry for both men and women that take influence from 19th century New York. The label, Barking Irons, does a terrific job of sticking to their philosophy and theme for each and every product that they produce. As a result, they have garnered the attention of GQ, Nylon for Guys and The New York Times Magazine. Check out their collection at Barking Irons.

Complex shows us the Vans crossover with the 3 shops DQM, HUF, and Kicks/Hi. A couple of months ago, these were floating around the net and were rumored to not be released but I guess they’re out according to Complex. From the pic, the chukka boot collaborations with the 3 stores look really good. At $95, they won’t break your bank as well, so pick ’em up if you have the chance.

Afro Samurai

I don’t usually follow much anime but here’s one that really caught my attention. Afro Samurai, as the name suggests, is about a black samurai who seeks to avenge the murder of his father. Sounds like your typical story but what’s salient about this anime is that it features the voice of Samuel L. Jackson. As always Mr. Jackson voices many memorable quotes in his movies and Afro Samurai is of no exception. There are lines such as “AFRO! Don’t fight this fucker! He’s got arrows and grenades-n-shit!”. Afro Samurai also has an impressive soundtrack which boasts a lineup that includes RZA, Q-tip, Talib Kweli and Big Daddy Kane. Whether or not you’re an avid anime watcher, this is definitly one that’s worth checking out. Afro Samurai is currently airing on Spike TV.

As of late, I’ve really been feeling Boston bags and here’s one that caught my eye via Josh Spear. From Australia, Ecsotype makes various types of bags making use of a glossy look on leather. The ‘School’ model masterfully combines glossy ‘pull-up’ cowhide, marine spliced rope, stainless steel hardware, and woven webbing to create a magnificent bag for all purposes.
