MAFIA-HUNT

Item: Norway army surplus undershirt

Posted in fashion & style, myself, objects by mafiahunt on September 23, 2010

I picked up this woven mesh t-shirt at my favorite Military shop in Toronto. I don’t have any information about the garment, the price tag read “NORWAY, UNDERSHIRT, 100% COTTON”. I am not an Army surplus buff, like some of my friends, I wish I could have a whole paragraph about the history of this undershirt. Instead you can enjoy some photo’s of myself, bored at my parents house, wearing my new favorite top:

More detailed photo’s soon.

Mohair Jumper’s

I am obsessed with Mohair jumpers. I used to collect mohair sweaters, of all kinds, colors, patterns. I had a plan to re-create one into a sex-pistol friendly garment. Sadly during my “minimalism” period of 2006, I got rid of them.

Nostalgia of madness, has a great collection of Punk induced Mohair jumpers:

EYE‡BALL

Posted in myself, objects by mafiahunt on August 30, 2010

My friend Josh got me a glass eye as a gift, a few years back. It sat in a small jar as a curiosity on my book shelf, yet I always wanted to wear it on a necklace or a pin. My mother set the eye in a amulet (and put the amulet on a silver chain) while I was away in Montreal. The glass eye has always been one of my favorite objects and now I can have it close to me at all times.

Although I am loyal to silver chains, I am liking jewelry made from Fibers. Even better when created in leather. These pieces by Estelle Dévé look so buttery…
