Supreme Spring 2014

The last few years - I've had absolutely no problem copping my favorite pieces from the Supreme drops (namely, the product that happens to be minimally branded). This year? Both items I wanted were sold out by 8:02am this morning (i.e. 2 minutes after going up for sale). Not sure if tastes are evolving, or if the thirst for Supreme is that real. Either way - your boy is bummed - and I'll still be here when the popular train moves on.

Skrekstore - Durr Watch

I wanted to pick up a Durr watch from Skrekstore- but didn't think I needed to rush since I'm committed to wearing my Cold Picnic joint all year as part of the 2014 challenge. Welp, I was wrong, since the the Durr watches are sold out of all colors. If you didn't catch one while they are out - the Durr was a watch/bracelet designed to help one understand the relative nature of 'time'. It buzzes every 5 minutes - and that's that. Having the time of your life - it probably feels like its constantly buzzing. Stuck in the doldrums and it feels like its broke or not vibrating at all. Be on the lookout for drop 2 shortly.

Andrew Whyte - Legography

UK Photographer Andrew Whyte, a long exposure specialist, did a pretty sweet project, titled "Legography", where he follows around a Lego photographer and documented his travels around London and its surrounding areas. This is a dope concept that was executed to perfection. Check out the entire collection here, and be sure to check out Andrew Whyte's other projects while you're at it.

Nike Flyknit Lunar2

I was just watching an interview with Nike Flyknit Lunar 2 designer, Sean McDowell, when out of nowhere I hear wifey appear in the room and say "you aren't getting those". Hmmm...sounds like a challenge? 

As you know - I'm a pretty big fan of the Nike Flyknit Lunar  which resulted in me having 1 pair to run in and one pair to rock - and the pair that is using for running is just about expired (I've put over 500 miles on those puppies to date), and with all of the technological advances (locked down lace, flywire, 9 oz) in the Flyknit Lunar 2 - sorry  B, it's gotta be done. 

Check out the official specs after the jump, and purchase here

Supreme/Spring Summer 2014 - Shorts Collection

I alluded to it the other day - but I was pretty impressed with Supreme's Spring/Summer 2014 collection. In particular - the shorts collection is on point. In addition to the work shorts posted above, look out for the water mesh short and the Garvey shorts (yep - I'm a sucker for elastic bands).

Nike Club Speed Hoody

I like what Nike has been doing with some of the vintage inspired looks. Grey on grey 'blur' hoody looks like something Mom and Pops rocked in the 80's - and I don't mean that in a bad way at all. Purchase here.

The Motley - Atlas Fragrance

The last small batch cologne we featured was Juniper Ridge, and the response on the site was quite favorible. Here is another option, this time, coming out of The Motley in Los Angeles. The cologne is concentrated, so you are getting a travel friendly amber glass bottle (flight safe), and comes in a tin container personalized for you. Read more after the jump, and purchase here. Figured this is Valentine's appropriate, no?

Dom Kennedy feat TeeFlii - Still Calling (Video)

I just had a moment. I wanted to post the new Dom Kennedy video (this is the 2nd from his 2014 release, Get Home Safely), and it dawned on me that not only have we not got around to posting our Annual Music Recap, but I also haven't posted the results of the 2013 APC/Denim challenge! Damn. Continue to stay down. We'll get back on track.

Catch soon to be west-coast legend Dom Kennedy's video for Still Calling after the jump.

The Hundreds - Black Carlton Jacket

I'm not sure how this jacket missed my radar when it was widely available, but it did, and now its time to either accept that its gone, or suffer the re-seller market.

2014 Sochi Winter Olympics

USA Today has a nice re-cap of some of the winners and losers from Friday's Opening Ceremony of the 2014 Olympics. I think it was quite clear that Tonga held it down and took the crown, but you can check out their list here if you missed it.

Nike FB Shirt

Maybe it's just because Wifey likes me in red, but, I'm really liking the throwback football style shirt from Nike. In this case, FB doesn't stand for Fat Bastard. Purchase here.

J. Roddy Walston & The Business

Not sure about you - but I had never heard of J. Roddy Walston & The Business until last night when they were the musical guests on Conan last night, and uh, they killed it. You can catch them touring the states this year from April through June. Check out a performance of theirs after the jump - and you can see why Coachella is the perfect venue to kick off their 2014 tour.

Kiss of Death

This is a pretty sweet statue out in Barcelona. Check the details below, via WeTheUrban

Located at Barcelona’s Poblenou Cemetery, this magnificent sculpture, titled Kiss of Death (El Petó de la Mort in Catalan and El Beso de la Muerte in Spanish), depicts death (in the form of a winged skeleton) planting a kiss on a young man’s forehead. According to the story, in 1930, the Llaudet family was mourning the death of their son and created this sculpture for his tomb. The epitaph bears famous verses by one of Catalan’s greatest poets, Jacint Verdaguer:

“And his young heart can not help;
in his veins the blood stops and freezes
and encouragement lost faith embraces
fall feeling the kiss of death”

The Simpsons x Denver Broncos

Between the domination of the regular season, and excellence exhibited in the AFC Championship game versus Tom Brady's Patriots, I had huge hopes for this year's Super Bowl. When I stumbled on this "Simpsons predicted the Super Bowl Outcome 5 years Ago" article, I was pumped. Needless to say, things turned out the exact freakin' opposite of what I expected today. Eek. Literally am at a loss for words right now.
