We spent a day with the guys at Norman Porter in Fishtown, Philadelphia to learn more about their process, inspiration, and how they fit in with the neighborhood.

Behind the scenes with Photographer Farhad Samari on assignment for Inventory Magazine. Features Cone Denim Product Development Director Bud T. Strickland.
What happens when a bunch of well-dressed men decide to trade in the wingtips and double monks for LeBrons and the latest Jordans? No, not the current state of the #menswear tag on Tumblr, but a basketball tournament featuring an array of menswear personalities like Dan Trepanier (TSBMen), Josh Kissi (Street Etiquette), and Jace Lipstein (Grungy Gentleman). These bloggers went head-to-head with brands and buyers in the first-ever Fall Classic NYC.
Sponsored by Fohr Card, Nike, and The Blind Barber, the three brands realized that since all these tall-ass dudes were already in town for New York Fashion Week, they might as well have them compete for basketball glory. Remember the AND1 Mixtape? It's kind of like that, except with menswear bloggers and the guys behind brands like 3sixteen and shops like Carson Street Clothiers battling for blacktop domination.
