STEEL EXCLUSIVE: Product of New York by Kyle Pulli
As promised earlier in the week, we here at the Steel Closet present an exclusive look at the Spring 2010 offerings from Pony’s upscale spin-off, Product of New York. Pony’s roots in the athletic shoe industry still frame the silhouettes of Pulli’s new collection, but sleeker outsole treatments, finer materials, and compelling construction make Product of New York more at home on the streets rather than the stadium.
More pictures, and my take on each shoe, after P.O.N.Y.’s press release.
PRODUCT OF NEW YORK
A COLLECTION BY KYLE PULLI
Inspired by a rich heritage as an authentic, performance sport brand, Pony’s Product of New York collection fuses timeless silhouettes with modern distinctive detailing. The Brooklyn Bridge metaphorically represents this assortment “Bridging” Pony’s Brooklyn roots with the progressive, fashion forward nature of “The City.” The collection is crafted from an exquisite materials palette and constructed for supreme comfort. Product of New York is the perfect synthesis of 21st century technical performance footwear and the simplicity of yesteryears’ classic silhouettes
For the Record: Eric Jennings
For the Record is The Steel Crew’s new series of dialogue with leaders and up-and-comers in the fashion, arts, and entertainment industries. We are the inquiring minds, and we want to know more…don’t you?
This edition of For the Record is with Men’s Fashion Director for Saks Fifth Avenue, Eric Jennings. Mr. Jennings was kind enough to give us an interview at the Saks Men’s Store in downtown San Francisco, where he was hosting a spring collection preview.
The full interview after the jump.
Spring Collection Preview @ Saks SF | 3.19.09
Last night at the Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s store, we were invited to a Spring Collection preview party by Saks and Urban Daddy, hosted by none other than Eric Jennings, Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s Fashion Director. It was a homecoming of sorts, since Mr. Jennings is originally from Walnut Creek here in the Bay Area.
Stay tuned for our post next Monday, where we’ll have our exclusive interview (!!!) with Mr. Jennings. But for right now, click after the jump for more pictures of the men’s spring preview.
The Attack of the Short Brim Hats

Cas let me in on a little secret a few days ago: whenever he writes about a peculiar proliferance of a certain look, style, or accessory he’ll label his post “Attack of the _(insert_thingy_here)_”. See what I’m talking about?
Well I think we’re going to be Attacked, sooner than you think, by the short brimmed or “umpire” styled hats. You can go to Hypebeast and check out the new FTC x New Era hat…
Or you can say hi to our friends at the Brooklyn Circus, who do it much better. Example: our dude Gabe the Great, rocking one of the new BKC headtopper / cranium warmers collection (my words, not theirs) -
Set lasers to “Fabulous.”
As the hype builds for the release of JJ Abrams’ reboot of the Star Trek franchise, BBC/Ice Cream has decided to release the “Globe” gloves, which pull doubly duty by protecting your digits from freezer burn (when you pull out the Banquet microwave dinners during The Next Generation marathons) and also allowing you to recognize other Vulcans when you’re out in the cold doing some holiday shopping. Okay, so there’s no official connection between BBC and the new Trek movie, but I find the timing of the release to be a little too coincidental.
I have to admit, these gloves are retarded – but they’re retarded in the best way possible. The implications of an item of clothing that is so massively esoteric is beyond comprehension. It lets everyone around you know that you listen to N.E.R.D., that you are a nerd that watches Star Trek, and you’re a geek that buys grossly impractical gloves from streetwear brands. Suffice it to say, I really, really want a pair of these.
Bonus: It also helps strengthen your hands to keep your lady friends happy.

No prints? Damn.
The speculation’s over. The mysterious posters seen at THSF were revealed to be a drop for the ongoing 5th Artist series. Available now at Post and Rosewood. I’ll send a scout (my brother LULZ) to see if they have the prints that were on the windows too – I’m a huge fan of frameable art.
More pics after the jump.
Mad Men x The Simpsons
I know we just gave you the Mad Men Mania edition, but this was too good to pass up. Plus, what would this blog be if it didn’t have about 5 posts about Mad Men a week?
