The “Necessities for Fine Living” campaign keeps rolling, or sailing rather, as we catch up with musician and producer Ian Longwell as he takes a cruise around the island of Manhattan with his lovely girlfriend Laura, a bottle of rose, and a baguette and brie. If that’s not fine living we don’t know what is. See Craig Wetherby’s photos after the jump. Video by Eddie Grams, music by Roofeeo for TheGoodLife! x Coal Headwear.
Do you ever dream of having your very own clubhouse? A place where you and all your friends can kick it free of all the distractions of the workaday world? Well we had that same dream too and this summer we made it a reality with TheGoodLife! FC Clubhouse! Partnering with our brethren at The House of Marley we took over The Cardinal restaurant in Manhattan’s Lower East Side to create an oasis of epic proportions that became our home away from home for the month-long football fest that was the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brasil. Alongside our friends at NoWhere FC and Avery Dennison we pounded PBRs while Marley speakers pounded tunes from the irie setlists of Jasmine Solano, Roofeeo, Skotch Davis, TJ Mizell, BLK ARK, DJ Gravy and more. We lived the triumph and the defeat of the US Men’s National team over fish sandwiches and tequila grapefruits and we toasted the Germans on their triumphant run while recreating key matches as 2 v 2 games on the only concrete mini-pitch in NYC. In other words it was the best summer ever. Almost everyone we know was there at some point but if you weren’t don’t worry, we got something even bigger planned for 2018. Until then enjoy this mega batch of old fashioned film photos by Craig Wetherby that perfectly recap TheGoodLife! FC x House of Marley World Cup Clubhouse. Thanks to everyone who was involved!

We continue Volume II of our “Necessities for Fine Living” project with Coal Headwear with fitness model and Soul Cycle all-star Emma Lovewell. Turning her lower Manhattan environs into a living breathing gym, Emma creates a workout worthy of TheGoodLife! See more photos by Craig Wetherby after the jump. Video by Eddie Grams.

Hit the jump for classic film photography by Craig Wetherby who again produced the project for TheGoodLife! Video by Eddie Grams.
