A utility-minded design inspired by legendary New York street photographer Bill Cunningham’s iconic attire, this bright-blue Photographer Vest from The Quiet Life boasts a mixed-material composure that pays active homage to its workwear and militaria-inspired muse. Made from a combination of Taslon, oversized fabric-mesh and Polar fleece, this split-tone vest is styled to a regular fitting with forest green bonded seams, a curved rear hemline and a full-length YKK contrast-zipper fastening that flows through the immediate centre of the chest from its mock-neck collar. Blue-mesh overlay upper panelling pairs neatly with the khaki-brown fleece lower panelling to deliver a deconstructed aesthetic boosted by numerous exterior chest and above-waist pockets accentuated with zippers and contrasting pull-tabs, whilst the open-mesh rear and the rubber-embossed ‘Quiet Life’ all-black label across the left-chest seals this activewear vest off with a contemporary sense of urbanised appeal.
Known for their relaxed cuts and their collaborative relationship with much-loved artists such as Eric Kenney, Beth Hoeckel and Carlos Gutierrez, The Quiet Life is a West Coast skate and streetwear brand known for their creative spirit and non-conformist attitude. Inspired by founder Andy Mueller’s love for photography, custom design and illustrative artwork, TQL remains a firm favourite brand here at Flatspot thanks to their ‘take no orders’ aesthetic and their notable appreciation for skate’s colourful past.
