Fuck, why is sashiko stitching so amazing? I want sashiko stitched everything. This Blue Blue Japan jacket is 560 dollars, but that is 560 dollar bills that really couldn’t be better spent anywhere else. Those dollar bills have a destiny,...

Wow, this William Fox And Sons sweater is v white, v high contrast aka v difficult to keep clean. And, looking at the fabric, it’s inevitable that the care tag says “dry clean only.” No way you could drop this...

In bars like D.C.’s Smith Point and New York’s Dorrian’s, the subtleties of dress are important. Flamboyance need not apply. The women at these establishments are too conservative to be swayed by rare hemlines and elongated anoraks. Instead, they are...

There are some unspoken rules about the things we write about at Four Pins. Believe it or not, we do put in a little effort to write about things that are affordable. Sure, there’s the occasional $1,500 parka that we...

New York City is a tangled juxtaposition of beautiful and horrible, arousing and repulsive, frustrating and relaxing, right and wrong, and those complicated feelings have manifested themselves into “vibes.” VIBES, VIBES, MOTHERFUCKING VIBES. They’re sweeping this city and are as...

Wearing nothing but black sweaters this fall is totally the move. Like, just have a bunch of different versions to rotate between all season long. So, when someone asks you if you just wear the same sweater everyday, you can...

Man, Monitaly makes really nice coats. And not, like, subtly nice either. Nah, really fucking nice. Everyone you know will definitely remark, “Wow, that’s a really nice coat.” Too bad it costs $800. That is a lot of money for...

There are times when you realize who are the most important designers out there. And, like, yeah, we already knew Yohji was a god amongst mere mortals, but I guess he wanted to throw down the hammer of justice and...

Wow, Goodhood just made a coach’s jacket that pretty much everyone can get behind. If you don’t like this you probably have questionable taste, if not just straight up garbagio taste. Like, this jacket so good and so murdered out...

Raf Simons x Fred Perry came up with this sweatshirt that has a gigantic patch sewn on the front. I’m all the way down with this despite barely ever fucking with regular, mainline Fred Perry. You guys should cop because...

The headline says it all on this one. These are $700 pants by Sacai and they are fucking dope. Because my life is relatively dope and I strive to do dope shit, I want to wear these dope pants. As...

Holy shit, this Griffin down jacket with wool paneling is fucking insane. Granted, you’ll probably only be able to wear this jacket, like, two days this winter because it’s almost too warm, but who cares? On those two days, you...

No fucking shit, of course you can find a very similar shirt to these Unused thermals for A LOT cheaper than this, but it won’t have thumbholes or an elongated, curved hem. Not to mention, this shit is made in...
