Mollusk Windbreaker


Mollusk Surf Shop out in Venice Beach has been doing there a thing under the radar for quite a bit of time, from carrying some of your favorite surf brands to pushing out their own in-house collection. As Fall comes upon us (I can't believe September is almost gone - this year is flying by) - Mollusk brings out this windbreaker perfect for breezy evenings. 100% made in the USA, this jacket features water repellant poplin, inner contrast liner lining, patch pockets and leather toggles.

Purchase here.

Follow the Sky - Bianca Green



It's not always about exclusivity. Sometimes you just need a nice simple print to spruce up an area of your house or apartment, and no one should be reduced to purchasing their affordable household art at Ikea or other furniture stores.. This print featured above is not at all indicative of Bianca Green's typical works, but I love the imagery and vibrant colors. Purchase here.

DEADLINE LTD. X PLAYGROUND FALL 2012 COLLECTION



I'm loving these two LA based shirts - the first, depicting Jessica Rabbit as a DJ Quik groupie, and the second (pictured after the jump) featuring famed Slauson Donuts and various characters from The Simpsons. Blending infamous photo's with cartoons while showing respect to the West Coast? Count me in. 

Pictures and details on the project (after the jump) via The Feed.

Play Cloths - Mango 5 Panel Cap

I realize I've been posting a lot of 5-panel hats of late, but there have actually been quite a few brands dropping some quality mark ups, whereas in the past if you wanted a 5-panel, you were limited to Supreme, more recently Skulls, or some old fishing stores. You can purchase the hat pictured above from Play Cloths Fall/Winter 2012 collection here.

The Hundreds x Iwan Smit


Iwan Smit and The Hundreds came together on a collection featuring 5 T's, a sweatshirt, and a hat - available now at The Hundreds online shop. I haven't been a fan of a lot of TH's collabs lately - but I can't deny the colorful flip on Adam Bomb offset by Iwan Smit's meloncholy expression, especially on the hat. More pics after the jump...

Enclave Eyewear: twenty&twenty




It seems like I was just shouting out UCSB the other day, doesn't it? Well I can't help it if so much goodness is coming out of the best campus in the UC system!

Daniel Kane, a student at UC Santa Barbara, was looking to find a quality pair of sunglasses that had more to offer than a brand name, couldn't find anything but cheap knockoffs, so decided to create his own pair. With features such as six-layer Polycarbonate lenses (scratch resistant, 100% UVA/UVB Filter) and a Thermoplastic memory frame (BPA and EA free), all while borrowing a familiar silhouette, I think we can say 'mission accomplished'. More information on the project here, and more pictures and (and Kickstarter video) after the jump.  For $30, why not support a college kid's grind AND pick up a nice pair of shades (*Future voice*) "at the same damn time"? Video and more pics after the jump...

Pour Deux by Marc Allante



Marc Allante has a lot of quality prints available on the low. Not high brow or limited by any means - but also not found at your local IKEA, his work to me represents a good entry way to art. I like this imagery in the picture above a lot, and you can  purchase this and many more of his pieces here.

Nike Lebron 9 Low - Liverpool

As Liverpool look to get their first victory in this young season this morning - its only right that we feature the colorway of the Lebron 9's inspired by his favorite club (which he is also partial owner of). In my opinion, its a shame that they didn't keep the LFC emblem on the heel as originally designed - but regardless, Kicks Deals has them for 30% off (purchase here). Original prototype (and other pics) after the jump.

JFK


Leather bomber jacket, Ray-bans, and blue socks? Yes - its time for another edition of presidential swag featuring none-other-than our 35th President, John F. Kennedy. Whether he sits at the top of your list or not, it's hard to argue JFK and his iconic look is anywhere outside of the top 3 when it comes to stylish presidents. More after the jump.

Saturdays Surf NYC


Maybe its just me - but it sure seems like Saturdays Surf NYC grew from t-shirts to other avenues (print publication, cut-n-sew line) rather quickly. Check out more from Saturdays Surf Fall 2012 collection here.

Nike Free Run +2 Suede Pack


Not sure the Nike Free series can be beat when it comes to finding the proper mix between style, comfort, and performance. The recent suede pack (see the full line-up here) leans more towards lifestyle shoes with their vivid and simplistic colorways - definitely a shoe drop too look out for.

Nothin' but a gangsta party...
