AMBSN

I like AMBSN shorts a lot - and not just because they are made in California. They just realized their Fall 2013 lookbook, and with that comes a sale on some of their Summer 2013 goods. Check out the sale here, and shop the new looks here.

CLOT x The Hundreds




























East meets West with this new collaboration between Clot's Edison Chen of China and The Hundreds Ben/Bobby out here in the US. Featuring a wide range of shirts, tanks, shorts, and hats. I like the flips of the CLOT logo with the American flag colorway and vice versa look for Adam Bomb, or the playful "Made in China" tagline on the Eagle shirt. You can check out the collection here and purchase this Friday.

Hennessy - OS GEMEOS

 

This limited edition bottle from Hennessy may not be as hyped up as the KAWS or Futura drops, but the design by Brazilian twins Os Gemeos certainly should be. Check out the press release after the jump.

Warrior x Liverpool: 2013-2014 Kits


If you woke up early this morning, there was an hour and a half span that Liverpool sat all alone at the top of the EPL Standings after a 1-0 win over Stoke City. Hopefully we'll see a similar result at the end of the season. Above are the away kit and 3rd kit that Warrior Sports put together for the 2013-2013 campaign. The away kit was inspired by the 1981 LFC League Winners Cup shirt, and the 3rd kit was inspired by Space Invaders (kidding). You can purchase both kits, as well as their more traditional first kit, here. Don't sleep on the goalkeeper's 2nd kit either, I'm certainly not!

Control

Kendrick has really turned the streets, radio, and blogosphere upside down with his Control verse, and rightfully so. What has gotten most people riled up is mainly due to one of the following 3 items:  a) A kid from Compton just called himself the King of NY*,
b) Kendrick, with only 1 album in his discography, put himself in the same conversation as Jay-Z, Nas, Andre 3k, and Eminem, and
c) Kendrick called out all of his contemporaries, by name in his quest to raise the bar.

My favorite part of the verse is actually neither of the 3, but rather his closing bars, which you can read after the jump. Also, for those of you that aren't necessarily hip-hop heads or adept to listening to lyrics vs hearing them, you can check out Rap Genius for a breakdown of the lyrics.

 As you can imagine, rappers are coming out of the woodwork with their responses, but to date only two have really provided the lyricism to be discussed further, and those are the responses of Joell Ortiz and King Los. Listen to the entire original song here.

Oh, and shout-out to XPAYNE for the art featured above.

Oakley Frogskins LX - Tortoise

I busted my Tortoise "Enclave" sunglasses Monday, and I wasn't a happy camper. The glasses were cool, but I mainly just bought them to support a kid from Santa Barbara who was following his heart and releasing a pair of quality sunglasses with a good price point. I'm not going to knock the quality, because when you sit on a pair of sunglasses, rarely does anything good happen, but that being said, I'm going back to my timeless Oakley Frogskins, the tortoise pair pictured above to be specific. Purchase here.

Naja's - 5th Annual IPA Festival



Naja's Place in Redondo Beach is just now winding down it's 5th annual IPA Festival. With over 88 taps, Naja's will always hold a special place in my heart as one of the few places with a great craft beer selection in Southern California before the scene started picking up in the last few years. For this event in particular, Naja's is featuring over 70 IPA's from around the country - and it's definitely worth taking in before it ends. Some of the highlights include:

El Segundo Brewing Company - Grand Hill IPA
Ballast Point - Habenero Sculpin IPA
Russian River - Pliny the Elder
Dogfish Head - 90 Minute IPA
The Dudes - Outsourced IPA with Lynchee
Strand Brewing Company - White Sand IPA

Happy Socks 2013 - Fall/Winter


Things have changed a lot since I first started posting 'socks' on the blog, and colorful socks with personality are as much of the 'norm' as athletic socks and plain hues of blue/black. Happy Socks are one of the originators and definitely responsible for helping to bring the look to the forefront. Check out Happy Sock's current look book here.

The Civil Wars


Seeing as they are already Grammy award winning artists - I realize I am late to the party on this one - but I don't care, I'm just glad I'm here with my party pants on.

The Civil Wars are a music group that gets categorized as some sort of country / folk hybrid (although you couldn't tell from the picture above). I hate to compare artists because I feel like it robs them of their individuality, but if I had to, I would say The Civil Wars are a mash-up between The xx, The Lumineers, and Hang Dog Expression. Their last cd, Barton Hollow, is fantastic, and their self-titled follow-up is already pre-ordered on iTunes. Check 'em out after the jump.

Lunar LDV Trail's are a great mash-up between a vintage look (based on the 1979 originals) and modern technology for a great multifunctional shoe.
