Undefeated - Fall Sock Collection


I was pretty surprised the other day when I ventured in to Foot Locker (a store I hadn't been to in over months) - and saw their huge selection of Nike Elite socks in every color imaginable. Makes sense given all the young kids I see running around seem to default to these as these as their socks of choice, but still, was surprised at the quantity and variety available in store. For those not wanting to blend it, Undefeated is bringing some more refined performance based socks to the table with their latest collection, available now.

Supreme x Nike Flyknit Lunar1

While Supreme and Nike collaborate once a year, their model of choice usually is a re-release or retro (Trainer II, Dunk, AM 1, etc.) - so I'm surprised to see their current collaboration be a model that is still available in both the original colorways and on NikeID.  I don't think wifey will let me have 3 pairs of Flyknits, and I can only imagine what the markup on these are going to be - but if interested, check out the release on this upcoming Thursday, October 3rd.

Vans 2013 Holiday Van Doren Series

Its time for the (bi) annual Van Doren series release from Vans. How about these prints? Look more like a summer drop then a holiday release - but with these Indian summers the last couple of years, the timing feels right. Expect a Q4 2013 release.

Supreme x Jean-Michel Basquiat

I always feel a little weary when companies do collaborations with the estate of artists who have passed away - mainly because artists are such passionate people and you never really know how they would have felt about the collaboration project had they been alive. Regardless, Supreme collaborated with the estate of Basquiat. If you are unfamiliar about Basquiat aside from hearing him name-dropped by your favorite rapper, read up after the jump. More pics of the collection here.

Apolis Indigo Wool Chore Jacket

Whether its denim or leather - I love watching the aging process of certain pieces as they change over time, and sounds like you can add Wool to the list. Apolis is advertising just that with their new Wool Chore Jacket. At $298 each its pretty costly, but check the details below, and purchase here if interested.  Picture of the Jacket in its original state after the jump. 
The Chore Jacket is a classic work wear silhouette, reissued in an exclusive wool fabric that is woven for Apolis in Italy. Two different indigo dyed wools were used, creating subtle variations in color and texture. Finishing details include fallen buffalo horn fisheye buttons and a hidden pocket fit for a phone and pens. The rounded collar, pocket flaps, and raglan shoulder add charm to this rugged wool blazer.

Dom Kennedy - Reluctant Business Man

LA Weekly has a nice feature article on Dom Kennedy that you can check out online now, and yes, its worth the read. Dom had a huge break by working out a deal with Best Buy to carry Get Home Safely, his upcoming lp, with no distribution - which is really unheard of in this day and age. Talk about independent! Check out his video for South Central Love after the jump, and GET HOME SAFELY.

Swiss ARmy Jetsetter by Victorinox

There are two things I seem to have a ton of, but can never locate when I absolutely need it, and those are bottle openers and chapstick. The thing I love about this swiss army knife is its made with the traveller in mind. This little beauty packs a punch with 7 features (Philips screwdriver, bottle opener, scissors, toothpick, tweezers, wire stripper, and key chain), and most importantly, is TSA approved as it doesn't have a blade. Purchase here.

Ambsn - Jackson Jacket Cardinal

We are still having an Indian Summer out here in Southern California, but I know that elsewhere the rain is already falling, and falling hard. Stay dry and stylish with Ambsn's Jackson jacket, which you can purchase here.

Hershel Hilltop Wallet

Oh yes. The classic tri-fold velco wallet with 80's inspired print from Hershel Supply Co makes me yearn for the days of yonder. Purchase here.

American Apparel - Oatmeal Tri-blend

American Apparel's selection of Tri-blend shirts are far and away my favorite 'blanks', and its a shame that more brands don't use it. AA recently released a new "Oatmeal" color of the cult classic track shirt which you can purchase here.

Nike - Futura Safari Tank Top

Not sure why Nike waited until Fall to release the hottest tank top of the summer - but they did. Available at Champs Sports now.

Kid Robot - All City Breakers

Why get your kid generic forest green army men when you can get them neon break dancing figures? Encourage the next generation to set the violence aside and throw down on the dance floor cardboard!

Nike Lunar Fly 306 QS

I can't tell you why I like these. They are pretty ugly for pretty much anything other being worn as a recovery shoe for post game with a pair of sweats- but I'm drawn to them, and that never works out well for my wallet, ha. More pics over at Nike Blog.

Supreme x Schott Leather

Say what you want about Supreme, but when it comes to their collaborations, they do it with the best. So naturally when it came time to create a leather jacket, they called NY's own Schott's Leather. Made in the US, this leather jacket features a full-zip front, rib collar, cuffs, and waist band. Purchase here. Every man needs a quality leather jacket, right?

Bridge & Burn x Poler - Leisure

One of the brands my buddy put me on after his recent trip to Portland was Bridge &Burn. Established in 2009, this Oregon brand "creates apparel for people who appreciate the clean, well crafted, and functional. Great fits combine with remarkable, distinctly utilitarian details, culminating in clothing that’s made to be worn and a pleasure to wear." Who can argue with that approach?

Purchase Bridge & Burn's collaboration with fellow Portland brand, Poler, here.

APC x Nike Air Max 1's

This iteration of the Nike APC collaboration is my favorite to date, and we all know they've had quite a few now. White on white shoes with a gum sole, post Labor day? Hey, if a fashion house like APC can get down with it, why can't you?

Hangin' With the Homies - Eazy E Air Freshener

Image of **Pre-Order** Eazy-E Air Freshener

You don't need to be crusin' down the street in your 6-4 to appreciate the need for an Eazy-E air freshener. I'm beyond curious to know what it smells like, but to be honest, that won't have any bearing on whether or not I put it up on the ride (hint - its going up). Purchase here.
