Kanye West x Paul McCartney - Only One

What a way to bring in 2015! New music from Kanye and Sir Paul in the form of a lullaby to his daughter, from Donda West's perspective. More in the vein of 'Hey Mama' than 'On sight' or "I am a God', and I think we're all ok with that. Listen here, purchase on iTunes.

Just to make sure you bring in the New Year with a smile - one of my favorite Yeezus Meme's from 2014 is after the jump.

J.Crew x Nike - Killshot 2

My buddy got a pair of these for Christmas - and they are pretty sweet. The gum sole gives them an old school vibe (which is about right since the Killshot model was first introduced 30 years ago). The thought here - is similar to VANS, these look good crispy new, and will age well. Purchase here.

Altru Holiday - Portland Sweats

About 2 years ago, I took a gamble. The Jogger movement was just starting to show its teeth, and I was intrigued. I stumbled on a pair from Catch Surf at UNIV in Encinitas, and had two options I was digging. I plain pair in a teal colorway, and a pair featuring an all-over-print a la the Hammer pants. I'm a fan of all things 'tiffany', but the plain pair reminded me just a little two much of the scrubs my wife wears to the hospital. So I went all-over-print, and to be honest, I don't wear them as much as I would the others. 

Ok - I hear you saying in the background, "good story". I put these in a different category from the joggers I describe above. These are sweats, and integrate the all-over-print much better. Purchase from Altru here.

Rogue Ales x Sriracha

I can't speak for the beer (yet) - but as far as the packaging goes - absolutely nailed it. If this is anything like the Rogue collaboration with Voodoo Donuts - I have high expectations. Shout-out to the Sriracha addicts out there.

Park Delicatessen

Man - I'm getting old. I honestly can't keep up with the new-wave Hipster/Cool Guys/Whatever you want to call it. "New" Brooklyn has a hybrid menswear / skateboarding / flower shop called Park Delicatessen, and they stock everything from in house label 5 panel caps and beanies to high end denim, skateboards, notepads, spray paint, and fresh flower bouquets. As dope as it looks (and I'm being serious) - I just can't. I get it, but man. This is just beyond my current state of comprehension (although if it was in town - I could see myself shopping there, and that hurts more).

TUMI - Patrol Travel Puffer Jacket


Innovation - I absolutely love it. It's so simple, but the best ideas usually are. A down jacket the folds up to a travel pillow? Clutch! Two birds with one stone. Purchase here. Picture of the jacket in its travel mode after the jump.

Serial Podcast

This podcast is addicting. Seriously addicting. My wife and I took a road trip up to Nevada Thanksgiving week, and we listened to the first 7 episodes, non-stop. Stops for gas were rushed. Food was inhaled. We had to get back in the car and hit play! Now that we are caught up and current, we're stuck eagerly anticipating Thursday's to get the latest fix. If you have a commute and are interested in mixing up what you listen to - try this on for size. Read about Serial here, download episode 1, and tell me I led you astray. I dare you.

Undrcrwn - 2 Sport Star

This shirt reminds me of a story taking place a couple weeks back. My local grocery store lets employees rock football jersey's instead of a standard uniforms on Sunday's. One women was rocking a XXL Bo Jackson Raiders jersey - so in addition to asking where I could find the whole peppercorns, I asked if she thought that day would be the day the Raiders would pull out their first victory. Her response?

"Honey - this is a throwback Bo Jackson jersey. I don't know nuthin' bout those clowns playing for the Silver and Black today!".

'Nuff said.

Backpack No 563

This is bag is top flight. 7 different shades of Selvage denim and deadstock cowhide leather. Price is steep (and those are Euro's, not Dollars) - but quality is quality.

I realize my post on Rare Panther had a bit of a back-handed compliment to my man SLVSTR the other day, and I by no means meant it that way. Much respect. Check his ode to Kim K's breakage of the internet after the jump.

YG - My Krazy Life

I'm a reasonable enough person to say that I have absolutely no reason to gravitate towards certain types of artists; and YG is an artist in that category. That being said, it's November (nearly 9 months after its release date), and YG's debut album, My Krazy Life, is still in rotation. Music like this fills a void, and their aren't a lot of artists making quality "gangsta rap" (that term feels dated) music anymore (shout out to Nipsey). Keep the spectrum broad...

Raw Selvage Denim Overalls

A buddy of mine is trying to find a pair of quality raw denim overalls. Not this faded/pre-distressed pair as worn by Rikki Barton above, but a pair that he can rock and break in. The best I could find for him (bless is heart) is this Naked and Famous pair. If you have some better sources - get at me via email.

Rare Panther

I'd still rather buy some SLVSTR prints than rock his Rare Panther label (similar to how I'd rather bump some new Pusha T than rock Play Cloths) - but no offense to either venture. Check out the new lookbook here.

Emily Blimcoe

Some of my favorite pieces of art are the ones where I say to myself - "Man, I could have done that! The fact is, it's not that easy, and more often than not, the artist is robbed of the credit they get for creativity, vision, and execution. Enter Emily Blimcoe. Love her stuff. Check it - more after the jump.

John Culqui

I came across John Culqui's art during a family pit-stop to Nikau Kai Waterman Shop in Manhattan Beach, and instantly fell in love. Beach centric beach scenes full of references to the South Bay (El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach) in a pop art fashion - sweet. Check it out here, and support your local artists!
