What are the secrets locked deep in history that are haunting us each and everyday? Who are the makers of today, and who shall we become tomorrow?

The Original Roller Skater

The aspirations that seem to be engrained into our soul are to finally climb out of the epic pits of insanity that we collectively call humanity. Nothing ever seems to make sense. In fact, it is impossible not to feel in RAGE!!!

We’ve always been left simply searching…

Perhaps you search the aisles of the school library for some sign of truth, or perhaps you are wise enough to search the labyrinth of light in the sky for a pattern or sign to guide your every wake. The riddle of the sphinx, has it ever been solved? Or is it simply that it’s question has never even been asked . . . ?

What is it about the night? What do we achieve when we dream? This is a journey by man, a mystery that never ceases to delight. Deep in our dreams, we have found our very own {MASTER MASON} waiting patiently for our arrival. Waiting for us to say we’ll stay.

But that would be like laying awake in the shadows you can actually see at night.
We can go about our day to day and never once seek the layers beneath the fragile surface of time and our past . . .

In fact, it continues to live on and on forever, like something eternally true.

Go about your day to day. Seek the seekers in the shadows.

Lets find the {MASTER MASON} that’s within us all…

+Cum Lupis Ulula +
Howl with the Wolves…

The wind really picked up today, and the sky was just full of grey.

E.O.F. Snapshot of the Day {December 31, 2012} PLUS! {Bonus} New Years’ Music Minute!

EOF- Happy New Year Party Time

Happy New Year Friends, Fans, & Followers!

2012 has been the most exciting of years for us here at The Eye of Faith.

Apart from surviving the End of the World (what happened ? ? ?), so many wicked memories have been made. When we embarked on this endeavor we had an almost supernatural sensibility guiding us, and at the end of the year, it is fantastic to see this other worldly vision take us to the places it did!

We are looking forward to meeting more of you, and hearing your stories, too! 2013 promises to be a productive and exciting New Year for anyone who is willing to get on board the train of evolution. Not the kind of evolution where your eyes can start to see through walls, but the evolution, in part from technology, and in part from the new awareness in the world.

If you are able to embrace this awareness, the world can truly be your oyster!

But until 2013 truly begins, please enjoy the last beautiful moments of 2012, a most mysterious year, and the final morsels of memory it has to give!

AKA : ” LETS PARTY ! ! ! “

Until we meet again,

The Eye of Faith Presents ++The Boss of the Plains ++ {True Stetson-Loving Wisdom}

The Eye of Faith pays tribute to the Stetson – “The Boss of the Plains”. So domineering in it’s stature and presence, there is no way to go by unnoticed in one of these finely crafted  bad boys. A creation that can truly elevate oneself beyond the everyday is a hat, and having the best never hurts. Domat Omnia Virtus. That’s what they say, after all.

If you are a fan of our photos on LOOKBOOK, you’ll definitely remember this look. We called it “A Night at the Improv” in honor of the shirt, but you definitely have to admit the vintage Stetson adds that ultimate something!

Check out these vintage Stetson ad campaigns from the 1950s we found over at Mister Crew. This is the ultimate in timeless and classic menswear. Most of the outfits you can imagine looking superb to this day!

It’s always fun to shake it up a little, but whether you’re looking for something “classic” or something a little more untamed, there’s no denying the power of those subtle details that really finish an entire look. It’s those little touches, such as the Stetson, that really help pull a look together. And really, it’s more than just a look – it’s the ability to harness your own powers over people’s perceptions. Now, that’s pretty wicked {excuse the pun}.

These are the things, we are often missing in our day-to-day. So, we encourage you to go forth and show the world what you got. Be the Big Boss. Fool the world!

+ DOMAT OMNIA VIRTUS +

{Excellence masters all things…}

There is only one brand of Stetson out there,  that is something you can’t fool anyone about. It’s these little pieces of history that really make us feel like life truly is something special!

Make sure you CHECK US OUT on LOOKBOOK, where you can see some of our looks with many more to come…

Until next time,

Vintage Surf Shorts by Scout Original

Scout Original is a Brooklyn brand that specializes in the purveying, restoration, and regeneration of fine quality vintage, rare, dead stock, and surplus pieces. Their pieces all display fine amounts of craftsmanship, detail, and loads of creativity.

Check out these vintage surf shorts that feature hand drawn memories of some mysterious lost paradise. Like images torn from a map; vignettes of hula girls, surfing pin-ups, tropical flowers, sea gulls and scrolls create the effect of a modern-day toile. These are the perfect pants for the park, beach, or a night on the town. Dress it up or dress it down – definitely perfect for that Paradise Found aura we fantasize about constantly.

This is just one example of the wicked works created by the dynamic team of Ryan Sneden and Gianna Galli. The pair draw from themes of nature, history, and popular culture with many iconographic pieces representative of popular archetypes in Americana (the rebel, the athlete, the hippie, the soldier, etc.).

Scout Original really goes to show that history isn’t just for dorks, and it’s about time we take to the relics laying around us and create something unique and remarkable with them!

Get these shorts today from Couverture!

Sincerely,

{The Eye}

EIN TOTER HING IM NETZ (1960)

It was a while before I could accept the title of this film as “Horrors of Spider Island” when saying it in German is just so much more fun.

Sucker for most Vintage Movie Posters, but especially Horror Films like this for something graphic and exciting. A great alternative to that Audrey Hepburn canvas from IKEA.

Found these gruesome pictures over at Project Terror, and thought they packed a punch. Not sure what kind of punch but am guessing it’s going to be a punch right in that ugly spider’s face!

If you want to know if these ladies and their hero survive this horrible ordeal, head over to Project Terror and check out the full film.

Hope we don’t get you too tangled up for the day!

Sincerely,

{THE EYE}
