Mike Posner - Cooler Than Me (video)



So my man Mike Posner finally shot a video for his hit single, Cooler than Me. If you follow the site, you know I've been a fan of Posner for a bit now, and I think he's going to do big things in the next couple years. It's a shame our boy Big Sean didn't get the look on the video, but they still through together a nice product (blend of the original version and the Gigamesh remix). Oh, and I see you Mike rocking that Dr. Romanelli jacket! I had a chance to interview Mike Posner back when he had a show at the Roxy, never got around to posting it though. For those interested, his favorite brand is the aforementioned, Dr. Romanelli (what out for those customer vintage jackets - mean!), lowkey on the kicks (Puma slip-ons), and most importantly, his favorite Dookie of all time is the one and only Wojo. Yes, these things matter, haha.

Roseweb Wallets



Rosewebs is a small company I stumbled on that makes various items (wallets, purses, all-purpose pouches, etc) all made from reclaimed and recycled lawn furniture webbing (which, as described by Rosewebs, is "an eco friendly,vegan alternative to leather"). All of the items are hand-made, and are of upmost quality (I received my wallet earlier this week, and have been impressed thus far). I was a little hesitant to move on from the money clip, but these are thin enough to get the job done.

Support the 'lil guys!

Stussy x James Jarvis



Illustrator James Jarvis, of Amos fame, collaborated with Stussy on 3 shirts this season. I like the end result - simple graphics that aren't overly branded. Each shirt features a different Jarvis drawing, along with 3 different messages("Dance first, think later", "Keep your art to yourself", and "Please play at a reasonable volume"). Available now at Stussy.com.

Vado - Large on the Streets

VADO "LARGE ON THE STREETS" MUSIC VIDEO DIRECTED BY ARM & WILL PU from FM15 FILMS on Vimeo.



Diggin this quite a bit. Samples Big L, and Vado even flips the wordplay and pays homage to Big L's classic, Ebonics, in the last verse. (I'm going with "paying homage" and not "biting" because Vado shows love to L throughout). Lookout for Vado and the UN, doing big things, and of course reppin' Harlem. RIP BIG L, Flamboyant for life.

Tellason Denim



So evidently I came up on a pair of Tellason jeans today. I'm stoked.... as is the gf (the fit/rise/quality/attention to detail on these are great). Only party that is unhappy about the deal are my APC Petite New Standards (with whom I have had an exclusive relationsip with since September of 2008, haha). There are actual quality/premium denim built for G.A.M. (grown-ass men) - not just trendy jeans with some fancy patchwork/wash/stitching on the back-pocket.

Specs:
100% Raw, Selvage denim from CONE MILLS’ WHITE OAK PLANT - GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA
Leather Patch from Tanner Goods in Portland, Oregan
Cut and Sewn in San Francisco.

Yes, these are 99.5% made of USA products, and 100% made in the USA ("the only thing not [made in the USA] is the woven label in the inside back. And we tried, but it's impossible to find that in the US" - Owner Tony Patella.

More Info:

Ray Ban - Original Wayfarer - Rare Print Edition


Simply stated - diggin these. It's all about the contrast - the classic, timeless model/shape of the glasses, offset by the bright, colorful flower imprint on the inner frame. This is kind of like wearing a pink polo/tee under a suit (a la Miami Vice), or rockin' a mullet (Business in the front, Party in the back).

For additional info, and purchase information, check out Ray-Ban's site here. You already know these are limited, so if you're interested, act quick.

SUPERbrand


Really diggin 3 of the 5 (yellow, black, and navy) - but would touch the other two. All in all, pretty decent first showing Superbrand.

Info Via the FEED.

SUPERbrand Apparel is the brainchild of famed designer and artist Tony Larson. Tony’s work has worked as Art Director for Girl and Chocolate Skateboards and this new label is a move toward his love of visuals, sounds, cement and water. UNIV has been gracious enough to debut SUPERbrand’s new collection as well as provide room in there Encinitas store as a Pop-In Shop.

Travie McCoy ft Bruno Mars - Billionaire (Live, Accoustic Version)



Two of my favorite elements of music (live performances and accoustic versions) are combined on Travie and Bruno's collaboration, Billionaire. Love it.

Sidenote - Can he just go back to being "Travis McCoy"? I'm really not feeling the whole "Travie" thing....

LOL @ Drew - "So, is Bruno Mars in 2010 the Hipster Equivalent to Nate Dogg in the 90's?"

Kobe Bryant - 4x NBA Champion, 3x All Star MVP, 08 MVP and Finals MVP, and World Famous Fashion Model?



LA Times Magazine recently did an interview-feature on the NBA player everyone loves to hate, Mr. Kobe Bryant, while having him model some "white hot" gear, pause. Check it out here(don't worry, there are more pictures), and be sure to tune in to Game 1 of the 2nd Round Playoffs today, as Kobe's Lakers take on the Jazz.

(At least this is in LA Times Magazine, and not a National publication like GQ (ahem, what up 50) so Kobe will for the most part get a pass on this as long as Kobe keeps the championship in LA).
