S/Double - Stadium Shoe

Shawn Stussy and S/Double have a new Stadium Shoe in a nice mahogony leather available for purchase here. Let's leave the words to them:

The cousin of our 'service shoe', this style is another classic in your footwear arsenal... Constructed on a 'vibram' red eraser sole, the natural contrast stitching highlights the rich leather upper... Fully lined inside, the narrow waxed laces complete the package...

Bronx born artist Jayson Musson and Stussy bring you a collection of 4 shirts featuring Jayson's art and some of Stussy's catch phrases. Never one to shy away from controversial topics (check his "too black for BET collection here) or politics (Barack Obama Battles the Pink Robots) - this collection does a good job of combining both parties ideals, although I'd rather have the collection on my walls than on my shirt. Purchase at Stussy (and don't forget to use the "BLACKSTUSSY" code over Black Friday and the holiday weekend to save an additional 25% off everything! After the jump - check 2 more shirts and my favorite painting from Jayson Musson

My boy Drew sent me a link to Richer Poorer socks - and as impressed as I am (especially with the "Made in USA" pack, I'll have a hard time getting off the wife imposed ban on buying new socks.

Tyga - Last Kings

I tend to stray away from clothing lines designed by rappers - but one that I will keep an eye out for is Last Kings by Tyga. It's first offering is a bit basic and humble - much like Tyga's debut album. However - if the clothing line follows the trajectory of his career - it'll go from Coconut Juice to stripper anthems in no time. Check out the current threads here.

Gonz! - Sun Sea T

I remember when Rick Klotz and Freshjive were just rolling out their new sister brand, Warriors of Radness and bringing back Gonz! in 2008. Both were heavily inspired by 80's surfwear, with Gonz being the premier brand (more limited, higher quality fabrics, and a hefty price tag) while WOR had a more friendly price point). GONZ disappeared after a year or two, only to resurrect as a brand sold direct to Urban Outfitters, while WOR elevated behind T's and shorts - eventually getting nominated for GQ's New Designer of the Year award. Looks like things have come full circle, and you can now purchase GONZ! once again online at the Reserve for drastically reduced prices.

Blake Griffin x Jordan Brand

BG32 x Jordan Brand? This is just makes sense. Not sure if his Jordan Brand ad's are going to be able to top what he's done so far this year for Kia or NBA2k13 (both after the jump) - especially as Jordan typically goes for the more serious ad campaigns. It wasn't that long ago you had to 'Google it' to see who Blake Griffin even had an endorsement deal with, and now he's with Jumpman.
