Folk - Fall

The neckline is a little low for my tastes, but aside from that, loving the cut of this shirt. Purchase here.

STS - Sole Music EP

I know you can't judge a book by its cover, but  can you judge a mixtape by its cover? If so, this is sure to be a hit. Ha.

Fresh off his critically acclaimed cameos on The Roots’ How I Got Over, STS linked up with Honey to showcase the two loves of his life: women and sneakers.
The Sole Music EP includes 5 new songs plus the O.G. version of “Sole Music” from STS’ Demand More 2 mixtape, as well as the Sole Music Remix, which was blessed with a guest verse from fellow sneaker-head Donwill of Tanya Morgan.
Production on the EP is handled by Parafino, SB Charles, Kenny Beats, Harry & Alex, and Count Justice.

Raleigh Denim

Raleigh Denim: Handcrafted in North Carolina from David Huppert on Vimeo.

Great piece on a quality upstart brand, Raleigh Denim. From the people that make the denim what it is, to a breakdown of the manual process, to how they couldn't have made it without the stimulus package. Just an example of one couple following (and living)thier dream.....

American Apparel and Sesame Street? Definitely an interesting collaboration here.

DOPE Couture - DOPE Tales

Picking up where last season's Jetson's inspired gear is none other than Dope Couture with this season's version, paying homage to Duck Tales. Collection really makes use of some clean lines - the black and white pops. Available online now.

DopeTales, our summer release is a themed sequel to last summers Jetsetter's collection. It is a high-style modern interpretation of the late 80's comic book series turned television show. In typical Dope Couture form we visualized each character in lifestyle situations with updated gear and a completely different perspective. This time around we produced designs completely absent of color for a more fashion noir approach.

Opening Ceremony - Woven Leather Belt

Nice! Purchase info available over at Complex.

This is Easton!

Stumbled on these new Raw, Selvage jeans from emerging brand Easton out in Indonesia. Model shown above is the "Backspin", my personal favorite, but check here for a preview of their current season. I'm diggin the classic silhoutte, with the added details of the selvage on the low-sitting back pockets and front coint pocket. Price point of $70, which is pretty amazing if the quality is as good as it sounds - although shipping will run you $30 (from Indonesia).

Tanner Goods - Cardholder

It's not very often that I come across with an everyday product with a new, eyecatching design, that remains simple in nature and functional (ie not different to just be different). Above, find Tanner Goods cardholder/wallet (see specs below). Tanner Goods, known for their USA-made fine quality leather products (and the patch on Tellason denim, haha) came forward this excellent design as part of their latest collection. Purchase here.

Basic Cardholder mixes sleek design with a grab-and-go lifestyle. It is constructed from 3/4 oz. vegetable dyed English Bridle leather.
The wallet features a lined interior and has hand burnished, dyed and waxed edges. Each is stamped with our “tg” logo by hand.
Hand-built in Portland, Oregon
Wallet dimensions 4" wide x 2.5" tall.

Pinocchio x Kaws x Medicom

“Arrested motion claims to have confirmation that these Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket toys will be coming to life via Medicom. They were first blasted all over the internets by Arrested Motion who, when walking about a museum exhibition, spotted the little cuties. This was (is) The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum‘s first KAWS exhibit, as well as Brian Donnelly (KAWS)’s first solo museum show. Then there’s all sort of other toys like EAMES, Ren and Stimpy, The Clash Mickey Mouse…” - WFDJ

Spotted over at The Clipse' spot.

Jordan - Comfort Max 11

Here we find a new Jordan Hybid, mixing the famed Jordan 11's (pic), and mixing it up with the classic Air Max 1 sillohette (pic). I've looked at this pic for a couple of hours now, in addition to discussing with my boy, and I still can't decide if I love it or hate it. I guess only time will tell. I'm thinkin' I'm a fan - but can't be sure? I'm going to have to take some time on thiss one, but I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

Freshjive - Reserve Store Archive

Just wondered over to the Reserve Archive, and noticed they had one of my favorite Freshjive designs of the past few season on sale for $10 (great graphical depiction of the 7 deadly sins delivered in a simple, straight forward manner, while still pushing the edge). The Reserve Store Archive is a place where you can come up on discontinued and deadstock styles by Freshjive, F*cking Awesome, Warriors of Radness, and more. Give it a look.
