Dr. Romanelli (DRx) is a sort of mad garment scientist. He takes old fabrics and materials and reworks them into desirable new goods. For his latest project, he teamed up with FairEnds to construct these one-of-a-kind caps. Each is crafted from old material—military jackets, Levi’s denim, and more—and is levels above anything you’d find at Lids.$150

We guess when Topman, the UK street fashion brand with stores all over the world, decides they want to do a collaboration, they go big. For their new line of selvedge denim, they teamed up with Kurabo Mills, one of the oldest, and most prized, mills in Japan. The collection of jackets and jeans hits stores on June 4 and will go fast.

You may remember Albert Hammond Jr. as the guitarist for The Strokes, or maybe you remember him from his solo albums that went severely underappreciated, but you probably don’t remember him for being a clothing designer. Well, it’s time to meet Albert Hammond Jr. menswear maven. After a line of successful suits, the dapper Strokes member has launched a line of ties that add some fun to a normally stuffy accessory. All handmade in New York City.$79
Billed as the “Uber for tailors,” zTailors is the new venture from George Zimmer, of Men’s Warehouse fame. Customers use an app to have a tailor meet them, take measurements, and alter items. The idea is still in its infancy, but assuming more and more tailors sign up, it will make clothing alterations a breeze.Link
