Seth Putnam, Editor of The Collective Quarterly
My friend Seth has been working on something amazing this past year. He, along with two other talented guys, put together a magazine centered on the creative process. It’s called ‘The Collective Quarterly' and each issue they travel to a new city with a group of artists.
Issue Ø is based in Marfa, Texas and if you watch the video below, you can see the places they go and the people they meet. Already in the first issue they have met a saloon keeper with an eyepatch, rowed across the Rio Grande into Mexico, and went cliff diving in Rogue Territory denim.
After talking to Seth and thumbing through the magazine I can already see how this is going to be different. You won’t find lists concerning which top 10 trends to watch, or full page underwear spreads stuck in the middle of an article about best ways to cut in line at a bar in Williamsburg. This is journalism done right. Great articles, beautiful imagery, and stories about real people, in real cities.

playing in the snow is fun, playing in the snow with those that dont want to play in the snow is a terrible, terrible, terrible idea.
make sure everything fits well even if it requires a bit of effort. and avoid wearing a lot of patterns, stick to basics and make sure your coat game is strong. pants should be slim and tops should never really be much longer than 3 or 4 inches lower than your waist.
maybe i’d like to date you. or maybe not. i’m not normally very good on dates. i tend to talk too much, make direct eye contact for 1 or 2 seconds too long and judge you on your dining etiquette all while talking a little too loud and thanking the service staff abundantly. you’d probably say lots of funny things and i would laugh nervously, and then you would laugh AT me. and then i would ask what was so funny, and you would say “oh, nothing.” and i would make some silly remark about how its never “nothing. nothing doesnt make people laugh” and then you’d stare at me, but i’d be looking at the ground. and then you’d pull out your phone and tweet “save me (eggplant emoji)” and i’d passive-aggressively reply by favoriting your tweet just moments later. the restaurant would get pretty busy, and i would ask you about your family, your friends, your apartment and always last, your occupation. you’d have buckets of great answers but i’d miss all your conversational hints as we spelunked clumsily into a dinner conversational crater. two drinks, three, four, seven. who cares about the food? i am drunk & saying all sorts of inappropriate things, you’re laughing politely and tweet again “thread & salt(ed margaritas)” - i respond with the lime emoji.
just kidding. there is no lime emoji.
it is & thank you for the blessing. its serves as my ongoing inspiration blog. because who doesnt like a good reblog?
Hey man, so sorry this has taken me such awhile to respond to. I have no real excuse, so please accept the apology. I got really luck and after starting my blog a few years ago got noticed by ernest’s then social media manager. i knew i wanted to see what the industry was all about by being immersed in it and i did. it was pretty good, but you have to realize that menswear is an industry, not a lifestyle. love those ernest dudes though, they’ve really been making waves.
