I always consider it such a pleasure when I get the chance to catch up with Carl Chiara, director of brand concepts and special projects for Levi Strauss & Co. This past week, Carl was in town from San Francisco for Levis‘ SS’11 preview, held at the Levis Workshop in the former Deitch Projects space on Wooster. I met Carl at UNIONMADE opening day. We talked about our shared interests in furniture making and wood working as he hand made many of the fixtures in the shop. A Renaissance man, he’s a good friend to Secret Forts, an always gracious and humble guy and this is Carl Chiara’s Fall Three.
1)The Levi’s X Filson oil cloth trucker….I am so excited about that jacket!
2)I am excited about fresh pair of jeans, something to start new with. I am thinking about the 1950’s 501 or a 1960’s 505…I want something new and a different shape, maybe even a zipper fly…
3)And Goat Rock Beach up here by the cabin. It is always grey and ominous and chilly and Buddy loves a long walk there.
Huge thanks to Carl for taking part. Photo via WSJ.
