STORE PROFILE: SEIZE SUR VINGT

Posted by Alfie Avant




From the French class grade, 16 to 20, to the exclusive use of family owned and run workshops in Italy, England and Portugal, James and Gwendolyn Jurney are all class.
It was crystal clear from the very start that Seize Sur Vingt was going to be something unique, the original Elizabeth Street store burnt out any possible clich├ęs with a midnight blue, vintage Lamborghini parked as the centre piece.
In order to keep the growing company under one roof, late 2009 saw the move to a larger Soho boutique. Here you'll find a killer range of made to measure and ready to wear shoes, shirts, suits and accessories. The styles are refreshingly classical yet manage to sneak in tons of quirks, with the man on the move in mind.
You’re ready for the roads in the MLX Perchten 385 driving shirt, with a top pocket on the non-conventional side to avoid the driver side seatbelt, and an ingenious lower pocket to keep your Blackberry snug.
Then there's the Traveller’s Shirt with an all-inclusive double top pocket, a long rear section for your plane ticket and a baby brother up front for the perfect passport fit.
Seize Sur Vingt fill the fashion worlds void by sticking to essential fundamentals yet pushing forward with subtly.


You can find a range of gear online, but do yourself a favour and do it in person

UNDER COVER, COVER

After a brief stint in Mexico, I returned home less a Canon G11, some cash, and my 3rd Blackberry in a week. You really need to stay a step ahead of the underworld to make it in this big bag world. Luckily enough, the savvy designers at Twelve South are on side.
Their answer? An incognito MacBook cover hiding under the cloak of a classic hardcover book. It may look like your headed to a law lecture, but to the amazement of standers by, the inside reveals a velvet bedding, ideal for keeping your pride and joy safe and secure.
The design is built of distressed ridged leather front and back with an opening to allow for incase charging, and sturdy duel zippers that vanish when closed. The result is a snug fitting case, sure to protect your Mac from the everyday bips and bops.
This magical design isn’t going to have the radar avoidance power of Harry's invisibility cloak, but I love it, and it will make you a lot cooler that most other people.
The Book Book has been created for 13” and 15” MacBook Pro’s and is available in classic black or vibrant red for $79.99
Twelve South, with free shipping.
