Freshjive - Spring 2010

So here it is, Spring Delivery #1 of Freshjive's (can we still call them that?)new label-free line of fashion. I got a chance to peep the line-up live in its full glory, and it's nice, very well done. Don't let the lack of the "name" fool you, Rick Klotz and his crew still bring forth a quality designs with a full range, from comical (Revenge T), to disturbing (Join the Army T, to their staple celebrity commentary shirts (Lesbian Divas and Total '' Sucker), to clean and stylish (Prep Jacket), to quality accessories (Ripstop bag) this is one of the strongest and complete line ups I've seen this year. Kudo's to Rick Klotz and co.

Ayame Socks

As a full-time member of the "Grown-Ass Man" club, there isn't a lot of leeway on what I can rock to work on a day to day basis to let the personality shine. This is where a clutch pair of socks come in. Enter: Ayame. A little more pricy than some of my other go-to brands, these are made with nothing but the best.

"Designed and manufactured in Japan, Ayame socks are made from the finest materials with the highest quality in production and detailing."

Available at Oki Noki now.

Maiden Noir – Spring 2010

Not sure what it is, but I like this Maiden Noir shirt A LOT. It says a lot when a shirt can have a strong, unique graphic on the front, while still remaining subtle and refraining from being overbearing. Big ups to Maiden Noir for sealing the deal with it on this one.

Tucker Blair x Sperry

A match made in collaboration heavan? Pretty much. I dig what Tucker Blair is about, from their business model, to the dream life decision their founder made, to the products themselves. So much so, I bought in to the movement by buying from their first line of polo's when they first dropped (Quality? check. Comfort? check. Unique? check). Head over to their website for more on the Company, and the path of a young man in the finance world who left everything he knew to follow his passion.

Tucker Blair has partnered with Sperry Top-Sider to bring our Classic Needlepoint Belts to customers around the country through Sperry's retail store concept. This partnership builds on our commitment to provide customers with amazing products and maximum value. Our needlepoint belts will be priced the same at Sperry stores as they are at - ensuring the partnership stays true to our core philosophy of creating needlepoint belts of unparalleled quality and value.

Captain EO is back!

When I was a young buck, Captain EO was one of my favorite attractions at Disneyland. In fact, when I got the news of the King of Pop's passing, the first thing I did was hit up YouTube and watch the classic film (sans-3d of course, but it was still great).

Looks like Disneyland realized what's up and decided to bring Captian EO back. More, via BB:

“Since we first announced the return of “Captain EO” on the Disney Parks Blog, there has been an incredible response from fans, and we’ve received many enthusiastic emails and phone calls asking exactly when the classic “Captain EO” attraction featuring Michael Jackson will reopen.
Today, we are excited to give you an update on the Captain’s return!
On Tuesday, February 23, as a tribute to the magic, music and messages of “Captain EO,” the 3-D musical adventure is returning to the Tomorrowland theater in which it debuted. While it’s not possible to replicate some special effects elements from the original presentation, it will boast a new 70mm print of the film, and it will sound better than ever thanks to acoustic enhancements made to the theater since the film last played there in 1997.”

Mishka - LA

Michelle Trachtenberg x Nicki Minaj

Ok - so I know Nicki Minaj is getting a lot of hype in the rap/hipster circle, but uh, I never would of thought to stumble on a video of Michelle Tractenberg of Gossip Girl (and current current Complex Cover Girl) fame channeling her inner Nicki like this? I'm still tripped out on it. Thanks to Miss Info for the find.

Stussy x J Dilla

Here is Part I of the III part feature for Stussy's collaborative effor with J Dilla. J Dilla doesn't always get the love he deserves, but much respect to Stussy for honoring him with the featurette and not just slappin his name on a shirt or two to make a quick buck. More here.

I just recently stepped my game up and got a 160gb classic iPod. After 6+ years of trusty duty, my 2nd Gen 20gb iPod tapped out on me. I've been in the lookout for a nice little carrying case/cover for my new bestfriend, and stumbled on iSockit, a company specializing in cloth cases made from recycled vintage fabric. Score! Check out more models here.

The Simpsons x Coca Cola x Super Bowl Commercial

Another Billionaire is broke! Such are the times. Nicely played ad from The Simpons/Coca Cola on this Super Bowl Commercial collab. Nothing special this year, but this was top 5 on my end....

Nike Kobe V x Duke University

NICE colorway of the lightest basketball shoe on the market. Duke exclusive colorway, although it looks like one of the ball boys leaked their 9.5's on ebay. Shout out to Kicks on Fire for the heads up.

This is ill. I date back to Double Dribble, which was my game back in the day. I still remember being thrown off that all the teams at mascots on the bench, like it was college or something, but good game. Crazy to see that Dwade clip at the end of this, we've come so far!

Sperry - Spring 2010

Anyone that's seen me in the last 2 years that I've been heavy in to the boat shoes lately. Whether I'm wearing them to work on a casual Friday or rockin' them at the Roxy in Hollywood on a Tuesday night, the Sperry's are versatile enough to get the job done day in and day out. These grey joints are CLEAN.
