Levi's Raw/Selvage Denim Jacket

So last weekend, I came up on a pretty sick raw/selvage denim jacket from Levi's. I instantly fell in love with the various features - from the stitching and the buttons to the classic cut, I was stoked. Plus selvage? Can't go wrong, right? While further reviewing the various features of the jacket, I noticed one troubling comment : "Made in China". I know that Levi has been outsourcing for years, but for the most part, their premium goods have still been made here in the US. This is LEVI STRAUSS - the Company that's been making denim goods since the 1870's!

It's 2010, outsourcing really shouldn't bother me, I just have a hard time when it comes to legends and premium, grade-A products.

I think the Selvage  Yard says it the best: "It may sound strange, but denim represents all that I consider to be good and of value in the world. It’s pure, honest, unpretentious, reliable, hard-working, American tradition that gets better with age. It doesn’t get any better than that in my book. The story of denim is forever entwined with the story of America. It’s part of our heritage, and a genuine American Icon."

Brandon Jennings x Under Armour- Black Ice

The fella's over at Complex hooked up with my favorite young pg, Brandon Jennings, to talk about his new kicks, being the face of Under Armour basketball, and more. Check it out, and while we're at it, keep an eye out of the shoes as well! These are very slick and are supposed to be performance oriented also, and that is a tough combo to pull off.

Supreme - Fall/Winter 2010

Supreme Fall/Winter 2010 preview is up at their homepage. Another STRONG collection. Supreme has always been a couple steps ahead of their streetwear counterparts, and their focus on turning out more mature offerings the last few seasons have been no different. Look for these at your local (if you live in LA, NY, or Japan) Supreme flagships, as well as online, soon.

Kanye and Donda West (Mom) - Rare Moment from '03 Captured on Video

Nothing really to say here that Yahoo! didn't already capture:

A rare video clip titled "Like Son, Like Mother" has surfaced of Kanye West and his late mother Dr. Donda West, sitting and reminiscing about one of his old rap songs....It's a genuine parent/child moment that transcends the music.

Check out the complete article/recap over at Yahoo! for more info.

The Hundreds - Fall 2010

Ok, so I was up in San Francisco yesterday, and stopped by the much balley-hoo'd THSF flagship, and saw this shirt for the first time. Naturally, it was a must-cop. A Simpsons-inspired t? C'mon Son! This took me back to my days as a grade-schooler strolling the swap meets with my grandparents, trying to come up on as many bootleg Simpsons shirts as possible (YOU KNOW YOU REMEMBER!!!). You can purchase your own (purple, black, or white) here.

PS - NEW YORKERS - are you ready for your very own The Hundreds Flagship store? Just asking...
