On a recent trip to our favorite denim destination, we fell in love with local name-stay, Williamsburg Garment Co. The brand specializes in men’s and women’s denim with a focus in quality.

We’re constantly looking for new tunes here at the DETAILS office and CHVRCHES is the latest act to catch our ear. The Scottish synth-pop trio has signed with Glassnote Records, a label known for bands like Phoenix, Givers, Mumford and Sons, etc. We’ve seen all the aforementioned acts and there if there is one thing owner Daniel Glass knows, it’s how to pick a stellar live act.
Check out “Recover” and ”The Mother We Share” and stayed tuned for an upcoming EP release on March 26th.

Dodgeball anyone?? No??
Anyway, BWGH (Brooklyn We Go Hard) has become one of our latest obsessions over here at DETAILS. Fortunately for us, the Paris-based label has recently release some shots from their Spring/Summer 2013 look book and we couldn’t be more excited about the collection. Maybe it’s because the model is leading the life we dream of – jaunting around Europe, driving luxe boats, and mentoring some sort of little league soccer program. Or, maybe its because some of these pieces are just plain gorgeous (see color-blocked, suede bomber). Either way, we’re loving it and think you should too. Head on over to their tumblr for more shots from the look book.
