Hey, gidday mates! I know that mothers-in-law get all the attention*, but as anyone who’s ever attempted to win a young lady’s heart can attest, the relationship between a dude and his potential father in-law can be far more tenuous. I’d met Jenny’s dad all of two times before I asked for his consent, and I don’t know who the conversation was scarier for — me or him. Luckily we got through it with some nervous laughter and a lot of intense staring at meat on the barbecue, and now it’s plain sailing. So with that in mind, you’re going to read the next sentence as me trying to kiss up to Mr Tom Albright, but the first time I met him I thought to myself, “That man looks like the kind of guy who’d play an American president or a CIA general in an international espionage movie.”Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! If you’ve been reading Isaac Likes for a long time, you’ll know that one of the most exciting aspects of my old life in New Zealand was that every two or so months I’d pack up and travel across the world to some far-flung location. Even when I was depressed at home and feeling like I was losing opportunities by being so far away from the action, I always had a ticket in my back pocket which gave me something to look forward to.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! This one’s a bit of a throwback; I shot it in Auckland last month with Reagen Butler at the end of a long day shooting Tom Bull for the Barkers campaign from early morning to sundown. After Tom’s last shot Reagen and I ran up to O’Connell Street and took these ones just as golden hour was coming to a close. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times — I’m incredibly impressed with what Barkers have done on the tailoring front*. If you’re a dude in New Zealand looking to buy a suit, you literally cannot beat Barkers on price and fit. And if you’re a dude anywhere else, you can’t beat a solid blue suit/white button-down/navy knit tie combo. Everyone’s a winner!Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Eddie Bauer officially opened doors at its first Manhattan flagship yesterday, and invited me along to join in the festivities. Highlights included street tacos, chilled dranks, a series of $500 vouchers given to unsuspecting bystanders, and an opportunity to try on every garment in the shop.Click to Continue!
