Looks like someone got their hands on a pair of the Cole Haan Penny Lunargrand Loafer's, featuring Nike technology. Not sure if these are ever going to ever get pushed to production after Nike announced its plans to divest of its Cole Haan ownership - so if you happen to be sample size (10) - you can purchase here.

exhibit 1, exhibit 2) - so it should be no surprise to you that I'm a fan of Mishka's latest offering. I'll save the diatribe this time and just give you the link to purchase if you are interested. Also, check after the jump if you are interested in copping a couple of the official bootleg shirts from back in the day.

With today marking the 'official' kickoff of the 2012 Olympics and Opening Ceremonies - figured we had to lead it off another Olympic inspired shirt - this time from Bathing Ape. I'd give you a link, but why front - you know its sold out already. Go USA! Make sure and check out the Olympics tag for all Olympic related posts - I have a feeling there are going to be quite a few of them!

I remember first stumbling on Warriors of Radness during a trip to Fairfax back in 2008 with my boy Drew. From the gate - it quickly escalated to being one of my favorite brands - quality fit with custom cuts, vibrant colors, simple designs - it was great. It doesn't feel like its been almost 5 years since the first WOR post - but it has, and OSTT has been a supporter from jump. News broke yesterday that American Apparel has acquired Warriors of Radness, and I can't front - when I first heard the news, my jaw dropped. With the way things have been going there lately (closing down the Reserve store on Fairfax, designers breaking off and starting their own company, etc) - it was clear to see that a lot had changed from the days when you would head to the Reserve shop for a shirt and have Tyler the Creator or Taco from Odd Future ring you up (yes - they really interned there).
I know a lot of their core supporters are going to call them "mainstream" and stop supporting - but I think the better approach would be to hold off judgement until you see the product that is developed under the new regime. Based on the promo video it looks like the designers and core team are sticking around - so let's see what happens with the clothes (that's what matters, right?). Promo video, press statement, and vintage pictures of OFWGKTA at The Reserve after the jump.

Chinese artist Chen Wenling created this piece, "What You See Might Not Be Real" - in response to the global financial crisis. Powerful imagery. Picture via the Saatchi gallery in London. More pics of some of my favorite Chen Wenling sculptures after the jump.

Retro College Cuts is a company dedicated to supplying you with the best quality retro basketball shorts out. All shorts are made right here in the US, and $1 of each sale goes to the Jimmy V foundation. If Retro College Cuts had tapped this market back when I was still in college and basketball shorts made up 90% of my wardrobe - it would have been trouble for the bank account. Check out their available shorts and t's - and read up more on the company after the jump.

Mike Frederiqo has been doing his thing taking various pop related icons and putting them in to the Spongebob world. Above, check out his rendition of the iconic Mickey Mouse rockin' his square pants. After the jump, find some of my other favorites (Jay x Kanye, Pharrell, The Simpsons, and Hello Kitty images via High Snobiety, Coco Channel, Karl Lagerfield, Murakami, and Terry Richardson images via Freshness). If you are really feelin' it, head over ot his shop and purchase a shirt or a print of some of his past works as well, over at his official site.

Wow - this is this best lookbook I've seen in awhile. Is there anyone you could imagine that would be a better fit to model Mark McNairy's charismatic and eccentric designs than Danny Brown?! NOT....A.....CHANCE! There is a also a nice interview with designer Mark McNairy here that is worth a look. He touches on how he's a fan of Danny Brown, and how they linked up via Twitter. The fact that he had Danny pose with some Cool Ranch Doritos says it all (if you don't get the reference - check #5 on Pigeon&Planes list of top 10 most absurd Danny Brown lines here).
After the jump are some more of the charismatic rapper stylized by Mark McNairy.

Not sure about you - but yesterday's post on Lacoste's upcoming fall line-up saddened me up. I know the 4th of July is past us now - but man, there is a lot of summer left to enjoy! The next piece of the Warriors of Radness x Opening Ceremony capsule project is out now to re-inforce the fact that the sun is still out for quite some time! More of my favs after the jump.

Pro Keds and Play Cloths recently hooked up on 2 pairs of limited edition kicks (the second pair is after the jump). The pair above has a bit of a "Navajo" vibe going, while the look after the jump is more tropical. Speaking of Play Cloths - shout out to Pusha T - he's been killin' it lately.

Not sure if this shoe is on your radar - but if its not - it should be. The Nike Air Roshe is the most comfortable shoe that I've worn in the last couple of years - and its on a new silhouette? Great stuff. The colorway above is actually a women's version - but the men colorways to date have looked strong as well (Grey upper/Teal midsole, Black upper/Infrared midsole, Black upper/White midsole - etc). These shoes dropped with limited fanfare or promotion (I had never heard of them - just tripped at how light they were when I spotted them on a shelf) - but they are quickly making believers (a quick look over at Nike's site shows all but one model have sold out altogether). If you see a pair around - try them on. Join the team.

Do you ever see a shirt, and instantly think that it was meant for a specific friend? Mike - this one's for you. Check out more from Forest Lab and their (LA) sports inspired gear. Also, check out a picture from last year's season's biggest success - the Mamba Rookie tee (you'll have to find your own link to somewhere still selling that one).
