Word of the Week: REPETITION February 28 2014

As we step into the last week of February, what was once seen as a brand new year is now feeling a bit more comfortable. The months repeat, the weeks go by and the days grow a little faster. But the word Repetition goes behind a daily routine. Repetition has been used in many creative ways as a technique of artistic expression. You can find this being used in music, from the repetition of beats to the structure of a chorus and verse. Dance is another form of artistic expression where repetition is key.
...
As far as fashion goes, repetition has recently been a popular visual trend in mens streetwear. In our opinion this trend in mens fashion is where sophistication meets street. There are a couple of brands we've seen rockin' this matching top and bottom phenomenon. Just to name a few, Stussy, Publish and Mjolk.
Here are some examples:

For the daring trendsetter type, you gotta come into the shop and give it a try! 
We are excited to be carrying a matching set of one of Publish's new Spring designs -
"Kiles Polka Stars" in the ever so popular Jogger pant, a classic button up, and of course a camper hat.

WORD OF THE WEEK: Movement January 29 2014

This week's word of the week at Asmbly Hall is MOVEMENT.
...
Most of us are busy busy busy during the work week. Getting from point A to point B, making meetings, getting to the bus on time, or making that last train home; it can all get a bit stressful. But through these stressful times it's nice to stop and watch the leaves fall, and take a break from our emails to watch the buildings pass us on the bart ride home. There is movement everywhere, even when we pause from our busy lives. Here at Asmbly Hall we our inspired by MOVEMENT, making moves and being moved by the beautiful things that happen around us...
..
Our very own Sophisticated Prepster Rons1ne often stops along his way to the shop to reflect on moments in time, photographing movements as he moves...
Here's a few photos from the past couple days representing movement through his eyes:

We also hand selected a few menswear items at the shop that remind us of movement:
This Screenprinted Hoodie inspired by the Aztec print moves from orange, purple and blue shades and patterns.
This camo inspired button up leaves no room for negative space. The pattern moves in every direction, a perfect button up for those busy moving days.
Staple "Sycamore Vest"
This outdoor inspired vest visually documents the outdoors. A perfect accessory for those busy cold days!
This button up is a work of art. Shades of mustard and splashes of blue on this cotton shirt look as if it were a watercolor painting. The splashes move from top to bottom and left to right, another perfect button up for those busy bees out there.

So move on over to the shop to check out these awesome pieces, also found on our online store...
