The Most Legendary #Menswear Grails Of All Time

#Menswear grails like “classic” hip-hop albums have the magical ability of turning a subjective topic into stone-carved, objective history. Just as no one can in good conscience argue against Illmatic as a genre-defining piece of work, the following garments helped mold the tiny digital culture we call #menswear. These are not simply items coveted for their aesthetics, but, rather, for their ability to shift paradigms both big and small. Whether due to unique fabrication, prohibitive pricepoints, limited runs or a lighting-in-a-bottle-just-at-the-right-time releases, comfortable lust eventually turned to desperate need, hopeful browsing replaced by something much more crucial. Thanks to most of the reasons that made them grails in the first place, these items soon became the subject of lore, fish stories and fables. “Did you see pic 8 of Tommy Ton's Pitti slideshow? How the fuck did he get one?!” It's funny, you almost don't ever want to acquire a grail lest it stop becoming a grail all together. The following items will forever be etched into the collective consciousness of #menswear, where they will continue to live on forever. Well, there and on all our blogs. And that's kinda how it should be.

    The FUCK do you mean “will forever be etched into the collective consciousness of #menswear, where they will continue to live on forever”?
    In 10 years, no one will give a shit about what you guys have done. Stop taking this shit so seriously

    Don’t forget the S2A x Justice perfecto. People were hurting for that jacket so badly a few years ago. Even made it to the sweat-stained masses…with every fast fashion shop and mall shop around — including Urban Outfitters — selling a knock-off…

    Ah, yes. A sweet short history of modern #menswear. The Isaia blazers are actually ready to get out of the closet again. Now, that the hype is over the quality remains. Some of these things I considered once but am happy I didn’t buy into them (B Cucc cargs and McQueen per soles.)
