Cole Haan Penny Lunargrand Loafer

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.

Being that I just spent the last 3 days up in Portland for the Oregon Brewers Fest (recap of #OBF to come later) - it's only right that I post this shirt. Available over at DQM now.

Mishka x Black Bart - Gold Digger T

I've told you guys a couple times now how much I love these vintage (Black) Bart Simpson shirts (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.

BAPE x London Olympics 2012

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!

Norse Projects - Cornprint 5 Panel Hat

I've always considered Norse Projects as a Supreme-esque store with more emphasis on mature menswear and less skate appeal - so its only right they try their hand at the 5-panel hat. Available for purchase here.

Banksy x Olympics

Gotta love it. Another confirmed Banksy piece after the jump. I guess we'll see how London's graffiti ban holds up with the world watching.

Warriors of Radness x American Apparel

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.

Chen Wenling - 'What You See Might Not Be Real'

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 - UNLV Runnin' Rebels (1990)

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.

Kenzo x Vans - Fall 2012

If you were like me and missed out on the Supreme x Nike 10th anniversary collab this morning (seriously sold out before the clock struck 8:01 PT) - here are some new kicks to look forward to. I like this collection more than the one that dropped this past Spring, how about you? More pics over at The Shoe Game.

Mike Frederiqo x Spongebob

Never been a huge fan of Spongebob (don't think I've ever seen a show, actually) - but artist 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.

Giuliano Fujiwara - Spring/Summer 2013

Granted these are on the other end of the footwear spectrum than the Nike Dunk x Supreme 10th anniversary shoes featured yesterday - but these are just as essential to the wardrobe. It's all about variety! Hypebeast has more pictures of Giuliano Fujiwara's upcoming collection here.

Mark McNairy Spring/Summer 2013 Lookbook (Feat Danny Brown)

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.

Nike Air Roshe

Who is ready for some new colorways of the Nike Roshe? This guy is! I highly recommend this interview with the shoe designer, Dylan Raash, which you can read now over at How to Make It. I know 2012 is hardly half way through - but I think its going to be difficult for a new shoe to enter the market with a better comfort level, design, and price point then the Roshe.

Warriors of Radness x Opening Ceremony

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.

Lacoste - Fall 2012

Nice head to toe stylings from the Lacoste 2012 Fall look book. A little matchy-match for my taste - but you can't knock the gear.

Play Cloths x Pro Keds

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.

Nike Air Roshe

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.

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).
