Sooo.. seems like watermelon is in season, steez-wise. I couldn’t help but notice the new trend starting with the CLOT x Medicom x Levi’s Denim and Polo collabs. I personally think that the denim is super dope. Then Vans recently gave us a glimpse at their Watermelon collection. As corny as it may sound, i actually think these pieces are dope, not all at once of course, but I def want the denim and the chukkas.

Mick Boogie + Adele… 1988

Fresh off the success of the internationally-acclaimed Viva La Hova, the MB team have reunited to introduce rock star Adele (nominated for 4 Grammy awards) to a whole new audience.

Adele’s album 19 set trends and created influence in the pop, rock and international worlds. But what would happen if the vocals and instruments of 19 were combined with the hip-hop sensibilities of the late 1980s, considered by many hip-hop’s golden age?

The result is the new release from Mick Boogie… Adele: 1988.

More than a mashup, it’s a complete reinterpretation of Adele’s album as only Mick Boogie and friends can do.

I need this shirt. Manny “PAC MAN” Pacquiao is sponsored by NIKE and to promote the best pound for pound boxer on the planet, they made this ill ass tee. It’s a play on Bo Jackson’s classic “BO KNOWS” nike campaign. It’s in the homeland’s colors and as far as I know has only been released at Fatlace in SF. Damn, anyone know anywhere in LA that got em?

FAR EAST TRENDS – UMPIRE FITTEDS.

So everyone knows Japan is an epicenter for fashion and trends from high fashion to streetwear. Hell, I’m known to hit up the Japanese bookstores and pick up some mags for inspiration. Well, this is what’s poppin’ overseas, the New Era 505 model, or the umpire fitted. I’m on the fence with these.. I guess I gotta try one on to see how it sits on my giant dome. But in Japan, theyre slowly replacing regular 59|50 fitteds with Japanese street brands such as MACKDADDY and FTC JAPAN doing collabs. I wonder how long it will take til we see em out here? Or if it even makes it here. What do you think??

I might jump the gun and start rockin referee shirts before they start poppin’!

Who’s with me?

Here’s a look at a new shoe by high-end designer Lanvin. Known for their hi-top models, this is a new look for Lanvin and a clean one at that. It’s kind of a chuck – purcell hybrid. Really clean. It will cost you a pretty penny though.

These Chuck’s are col’ blooded!  The concept of these 100th Anny Chuck’s were to use the lacquer ware finish which is a symbolic of Wajima’s cultural background and also inspired by the arts and crafts of Japan. I wish these kicks were coming out here stateside but unfortunately there only available in Japan. If Japanese isn’t a problem, then order them on Flauge when their released.
