The ACF Revolving Collective Presents: THE HARD GRAFT (The DJ Technique Applied To Menswear) Explained by Liam Maher of Denham
Produced by copenhagers.com, Film & Edit: Mattia Abeni
In occasion of latest CIFF Trade Show here in Copenhagen we got the honor and pleasure to pay a visit the the A.C.F. (Art Comes First) rotating Collective while they were presenting their latest project: THE HARD GRAFT.
We talked to Liam and Jennifer Maher from Denahm about it and put together a lovely explanatory video about it.
THE DJ TECHNIQUE APPLIED TO MENSWEAR
A Collaboration Between Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh with Matteo Gioli and Liam Maher
Progressing the tradition of menswear design from the past through the present into the future involves a process of hybridization, grafting, sampling and mixology.
Like a DJ digging through classic vinyl, remixing standards from the jazz and pop musical canon, menswear designers attempt to harmonize the most potent influences from their vintage research within a single contemporary concept. Sam and Shaka of Art Comes First step into the atelier with Matteo Gioli of SuperDuper Hats and Liam Maher of Denham to cut, scratch, sample and mix vintage menswear in a demonstration of the DJ Technique Applied to Menswear. Lambert, Maidoh, Gioli and Maher will working toward a creative synthesis of sartorial and workwear influences that reflect each of their individual design obsessions.
Scratching with Sewing Needles: Each day of the event hybrid designs will evolve within a nomadic atelier.
Each day finished pieces will be styled into a focused exhibit of looks inspired by the men who progressed modern music from yesterday’s legends like Thelonious Monk
to contemporary pioneers like Yasijn Bey.

His first solo album… and the only one I really liked.
“Everyday Is Like Sunday” is the best SMITHS song that never was a SMITHS song.
WIKI: Viva Hate is Morrissey’s debut solo album, released on 14 March 1988 by HMV Records. The album was a strong debut for Morrissey’s solo career, as he used his traditional lyrical style and retained the basic sound that The Smiths had developed by the time they broke up. It was listed by Q as one of the top 50 albums of 1988. The album was originally going to be called Education in Reverse; some LPs in Australia and New Zealand were released with this title.
The album was released a mere six months after The Smiths’ final album, Strangeways, Here We Come. The album was produced by Stephen Street, who enlisted Vini Reilly of The Durutti Column as the guitarist. Reilly’s distinctive style is evident throughout the entire album, especially in tracks such as “Late Night, Maudlin Street” and “Bengali in Platforms”. The record remains one of Morrissey’s best known recordings and was certified Gold by the RIAA on 16 November 1993. Some of the tracks caused controversy such as the track “Margaret on the Guillotine”, which described the death of prime minister Margaret Thatcher as a “wonderful dream”.

In 1989, when Galinsky was 20 years old, he and a friend spent six weeks driving across the U.S., taking pictures in malls. “At the time, the mall was the new public space, the new community center where people would interact,” Galinsky later said. “This was pre-Internet, pre-cellphone, there was smoking in malls, it was before the Gulf War. It was this weird moment in time where things were getting ready to change.” Over the years, many of these pictures have been reproduced in various publications and on a number of websites. One critic has commented that Galinsky captured, in these pictures, “in a beautifully off-kilter high-flash way, the cool ugliness of suburban style.” Another has written that “What makes these photos so appealing and oddly touching is the nostalgia bound up in them….They are from a not so distant past….The collection is imbued with a sense of the everyday melancholy but also manage to be a pop-anthropological feast.” A collection of some of these photographs, Malls Across America, will be published by Steidl in October 2013.
