The Fall Three: Jay Carroll, One Trip Pass.

Fresh off his latest coastal adventure, King of the Road Jay Carroll checks in with his Fall Three.
Jay, along with fellow road-trippers Jou-Yie Chou(stay tuned for Jou-Yie's Fall Three) from the Ace Hotel and photographer Nate Bressler, recently wrapped up a stint traveling down the west coast from Portland, OR down to LA and Palm Springs, camping, collecting and generally having a blast along the way.
As you know, Jay's the man behind One Trip Pass, having first set up shop at Billy Reid in NYC back in May of '09 and since, landing at Levis in San Francisco before his latest endeavors in LA and Palm Springs.
He's a rambler, a high plains drifter and one of the nicest dudes out there, always at the ready with a huge grin and a high five.
You can keep up with Jay via One Trip Pass and don't be surprised if he pops up(bad joke) in your city. He'll be the bearded guy, smiling and handing you a beer.
Here's Jay's Fall Three.

1)My Epperson Mountaineering backpack. Meg Company sent these for the OTPxACE airstream shop and I had to have it. It’s the perfect Made in USA pack for the West Coast Indian summer camping season.












2)The re-release of Ted Lucas 1975 record OM on Yoga Records. Soundtrack of the season, record of the year.

3)The stripped Kapital sweatpants from the Fall 10 GO WEST collection. I'm gonna pick them up on my next trip to Tokyo, Jay-pan.















Huge thanks and a dusty high five to Jay for taking part. Send me a postcard pal.

we live in a glorious age when all one has to do is write a blog and suddenly one is tastemaker. Curators are never artists.

And Anonymous poseurs can speak as critics through their keyboards, whilst never venturing out among the American people to discover their dreams and desires.

well said Beanball46. Secret Forts is simply writing about what he likes and thinks and for those that don't like it, don't read it. Easy as that. With that being said, I think it's safe to say that James is a tastemaker.

I agree.

Those three picks are dead on too...

Epperson Mountaineering is mad slept on... much like the rest of Meg Company (other than Yuks)
