The first time I heard about Take Ivy was from my friend Mr. Williams over at ACL. It's amazing to see the influence since he posted images from the classic book. In the last year, with Michael leading the way, it's been incredible to see how the internet world has transfused to the real world.
My guy Ryan from K-Swiss has put together one of the better collaborations I've seen in a while. As part of the English reprint of the book K-Swiss has partnered with Jack Spade and made a classic heather grey sweatshirt with blaze orange silkscreened elbow patches. As much as I like my elbow patches to be functional you have to commend the humor and cleverness in the concept. If that wasn't enough it comes wrapped in a beautiful bridle leather belt book strap.
Even though K-Swiss is a client, I believe strongly in what they're doing. And that my friends is called buying in, not selling out. From time to time I giveaway some of the more interesting, nearly impossible to get products I see in the marketplace. This is no exception. Retail value is $245 for the very limited edition Take Ivy Kit. You know the routine... Hit me with your name and active e-mail in the comments section. Follow me on Twitter @JakeDavisFilms and if you don't want to risk it, you can cop at Jack Spade now.
