The nascent project of Chicago-based creative duo Colin Heaberg and Will Gisel, Whim Golf is a Made in USA brand that produces apparel and goods of the highest quality, designed through the lens of golf, to be owned and cherished forever. Frustrated with the perceived and actual elitism that has come to characterize the sport, Will and Colin use Whim as a laboratory to "Free Golf!" from its old and stuffy trappings and breathe new life into the game.
Kaleidoscope Magazine Issue 37
New in the shop is KALEIDOSCOPE Issue 37, a special edition labeled OUT THERE, entirely dedicated to the ethics and aesthetics of the outdoors. Aiming to provide a timely take on geography and ecology through the lens of visual culture, their research steps out of the enclosed spaces of the artist’s studio, the museum, and the gallery (which Robert Smithson called “non-sites”) to look at art that's created outdoors and concerns itself with the natural environment, the street, and the outer space.
GREEN IS GOOD

PETER & AL
Established in 2013 as a humble line of caps by Al Verik and Peter Jurado, Paa now constructs full collections that offer thoughtful reinterpretations of sportswear staples and casual classics. Their practice as designers is largely research-based and iterative and involves revisiting and tweaking a series of core products as well as regular experimentation with new silhouettes and fabrics. Carefully detailed and impeccably crafted, each Paa garment proves "essential" in the truest sense of the word.

A CUT ABOVE
The Heavyweight Contender
MAN-TLE R0 Tshirt 2 in White and Black is the brand's loose-fitting unisex short sleeve T-shirt.

The contrasting shoulder yoke panel is cut from MAN-TLE's Japanese cotton chambray 'MT Cloth'. Designed as a way to better understand how their cotton chambrays age, with wash and wear the yoke will patina and change in character while the jersey will remain largely the same.
