Headmaster is excited to unveil Headshoppe, the latest iteration of its online store. Each month, Headshoppe will be the place to find a single hand-selected item chosen by the magazine’s editors. Each item will be selected with our smart, sexy, savvy Headmaster readers in mind. We’re kicking things off with the Woodward Avenue Belt by Hex Detroit, a small company whose belts feature buckles crafted from real hex nuts. You can get yours today at the brand-new Headshoppe, and soon everyone will be telling you how nice your nuts are.

Chris Ironside at the Headmaster Alumni Sale


Spring is here, they tell us, and we couldn’t be more excited. We’re so thrilled, in fact, that we’re celebrating with a brand new print at the Headmaster Web Shoppe. Spring Haze is a photograph by the Toronto-based artist Chris Ironside, whose work you might remember from Headmaster No. 3. Chris also made the George Michael-inspired glitter prints that we introduced (and promptly sold out of) back in January at the LA Art Book Fair. Spring Haze is produced in a signed edition of five, and is available at the Alumni Sale right now.
