Nordic Nights and Fair Isle Days

Thank you, PoppyTalk, for the posting today of the beautiful new Bon Iver “Holcene” video, directed by Nabil Elderkin in the gorgeousness of Iceland. Bon Iver is fast becoming one of my fav new groups. Amazing lyrics, spellbinding, dreamy vocals and fantastical visuals.

Makes me pine for the Nordic and Fair Isle sweaters that are ready to pop up everywhere on guys once our temps dive.

Gentlemen, get rugged realism with the reproduction Nordic sweater worn by Kirk Douglas in “The Heros of Telemark” from Norse Project, the funked up original Penfield down vest with Nordic shoulder patch accents and super chunky Nordics that are exact replicas of that Aspen Ski Chalet ’60s ski sweater your dad used to wear from the up-and-coming Ian Velardi.

Wear them and weep. While you’re listening to the haunting hooks of Bon Iver and daydreaming of chilling by the cool blue pools of Reykjavik’s thermal lagoons, that is.
