If you wanted more reason, check out this lookbook, which is complemented by the Yuketen menwear line, known as Monitaly.
Bring on the white stuff.
PS: I've also added a couple of pics of a cordovan keyring they've just released.

Vive le tour! from Bear Thunder on Vimeo.
I wasn't there, I wasn't even born. But that doesn't make this little film of the 1962 Tour de France any less endearing. The glory days of cycling, may they return very soon.
I found this via the Bureau's new tumblr website, which is well worth a look.

Made by Hand from Persol on Vimeo.
Only when you pick up a pair of Persol glasses do you realise the quality and workmanship that has gone into them. This video provides a glimpse into the production process. No wonder Steve McQueen was so keen on them.

R&D VIDEO: 5515 STONE ISLAND ICE JACKET AW’011’012 from Stone Island on Vimeo.
Stone Island are well known for using space age fabrics made of stuff like metal. This time they've developed something that changes colour according to how cold it is.
The jacket starts off yellow, for warmth and gradually goes black in line with the drop in temperature. Like frostbite.

Now he's bucked his trend with this homage to the post-war European artist, Yves Klein, who was known for leading the Nouveau réalisme movement. None of your real flat here, there's more texture than an anaglypta wall.
You could say it has depth.

Here we go then, another winter approaches and out comes another version of Visvim's now legendary Serra Hiker. Mine have long since gone to a more deserving owner, but this year's have piqued my interest, if only for a passing moment.
Nice distressed leather and other updated touches.

Aside from the very cool Ten-C website and the one or two (literally) retailers stocking it, I could find virtually no information on this.
So here are a few detailed pics of what is a true gobsmacker of a jacket.
