It's safe to say that OSTT is not the spot to get your daily fix on politics - no questioning that. It's no coincidence that that anytime something shady happens - from work promotions to sports - the first comforting phrase you often here is 'its just politics'. Not a lot of positive connotation in that word there. Anyway, I saw this picture online the other day, and it struck a chord with me. I've always prided myself as treating the CEO the same way I treat the people that come in to water the plants or empty the trash in my office at the end of the day. It really seems like the majority of people out here are only focused on what the next man can do for them to ascend to the next step in their journey.
Is the picture above just a photo-op? Who knows. It's politics. But either way - the message is strong, and its good to see the tone being set at the top.

that snapbacks are back - then 2012 has been the year of the camp hat (aka the 5 panel-hat). HUF (along with Supreme, obviously) is one of the companies that has been making hats in this style for years (and to me, that's worth something). HUF's summer hat collection is pretty strong - check out a few more hats after the jump - and purchase online here.

Animal Livin' XL Tee brought to you by AKEEM. You already know that the leopard print is in this season. Purchase here. (Note - old school fans of the WWF/WWE - This collaboration is with the Japanese designer Akeem, not Akeem (the Afrikan Dream). Don't let the animal print fool you.

Nike? Oakley? I think we can all agree that Eric Koston has some of the best sponsors of the skaters out there. Oakley puts Mr. Koston to work, and he delivers - on their latest collaboration. Tourtoise print on a pair of Frogskins? There are also pairs of the Holden and Plaintiff done in a similar colorway worthy of checking out. Great way to 'class up' a summer time favorite. Available 7.1.12 at Oakley.

This Bape x Undefeated collaboration is looking TOUGH (not literally of course - there are a lot of bright/floral looks that are built for summer) - but you know what I mean.. Available at the end of the month - check out the lookbook in its entirety here.

I probably don't give OBEY enough love on here - but there was no way that I was letting this Keith Haring x OBEY collaboration project slip through the cracks. Everyone's favorite street artist turned mogul Shepard Fairey got together with the estate of the iconic Keith Haring for a capsule collection featuring men and women's clothing, art, and other gear/accessories. Check out a preview video after the jump - as well as a write-up on the project from OBEY.

It is located at 1187 Coast Village Road, directly behind Richie's Barbershop (it's open Thurs-Sat from 2-6pm). I make a point of stopping by whenever I'm in the area - as should you!

Here is some creativity that has been missing when it comes to lookbooks! Rather than hiring some models (or just using staff) and shooting flicks - Bobby Hundreds decided to draw the entire cartoons rocking the new collection. Well played. Check it out here.

The NBA season may be winding down - but the summer leauges are just getting started. To feed the hunger - Nike brings out the latest edition of the Kobe VII - aptly titled "What the Kobe". Taking inspiration from the 2007 "What the Dunk" kicks - the model above takes colorways and designs from nearly each of the previously released Kobe VII's for this insane mash-up. Interesting, yes. Wearable? Depends how good your game is. More pics at Kicks on Fire.

Highly acclaimed artist/singer/songwriter Daniel Johnston got the pencils out and designed 4 new shirts for Supreme. After Saturday's Pacquio/Bradley fight, I kind of figured this shirt was relevant. Check out after the jump for more information on Daniel Johnston and his inspiration behind the collection.

New Balance subsidiary Warrior Sports recently unvieled the new Liverpool kits for the 2012/2013 season. For those not in the know - Warrior signed a deal to produce the Liverpool line (home kit, away kit (pictured above), third strip, European strip, and training kit ) for 6 years in a deal worth over $200 million (an amount that nearly doubled Adidas highest bid of $110 million over the same period of time). There are a couple stories I found online that really do a great job of breaking down the design process that went in to creating the kits - from how they were going to incorporate more than a century of the club's history, to how the kits would be manufactured from a performance standpoint. Check out an article from ESPN here, a video featuring a behind-the-scene look at the kits featuring Warrior's head of Marketing here, and a mark-up of the original Warrior sketches and notes after the jump.

When I received this email from Stussy this morning, first thought was - 'wow, Stussy has been going heavy with the collaborations lately' - second thought - who is John K? Apparently, John K is the man behind the infamous cartoon Ren and Stimpy (you 90's babies probably don't even remember the show). In addition to designing the 4 shirts, he also put together a small animated promo clip, and documented the creation process on his blog. Check out a John K. bio and his promo cartoon after the jump (heaving R&S vibe!), as well the other 3 designs. Available for purchase here.

Formerly of Warriors of Radness fame - these gents have started a new line called "Brothers Marshall", and the lookbook is now available for your pleasure (Did I mention its shot by Mike Piscitelli? No? It's shot by Mike Piscitelli). Not many accounts are carrying the brand as of now (UNIV in Encinitas being one of the few) - but I'd expect that to change in the not-so-distant future given their gear (and connects). From a fan perspective, I'm really interested to hear when Brothers Marshall left the WOR crew - because I did feel like their was a clear change in direction from throwback surf simplicity to more, uh, fashion forward looks, that clearly took place a year or two back. Regardless, I like what I see so far.

No luck getting a ticket (and free shirt from The Hundreds) to the Kings game tonight? No worries - Undefeated has you covered with their "LONG LIVE THE KINGS" playoff shirt.

Last time we heard from Server, we were featuring his mural titled "Death to Street Art", which featured the popular imagery featured by artists such as Shepard Fairy, Kaws, Banksy, Barry McGee, and others, showing them carrying the casket of Street Art. Server is back - this time taking aim at Streetwear's hottest brands - from Supreme's box logo, to the flagship mascots of The Hundreds, XLarge, FreshJive, Mishka, Bape, and of course, Stussy.
