Now i've gotten lots of mail drops in unlikely packaging before: jacket in (flattened) potato chip cardboard box; tees in industrial thrash bags; trucker cap squeezed in a latex glove box; large-sized fleece hoodie stuffed in tiny ladies shoe box for heels etc...and now this: jeans in Brooklyn's Faicco's Pork Store bag (!)
But i ain't complaining...bag is clean as a whistle and packed in Priority box; but coz in it is my long-awaited
45RPM Sorahiko's

This holy grail of a denim comes courtesy of another unlikely source: Mr Russ B himself!
Allow me to indulge: 14oz. organic hand-picked Zimbabwe cotton, dyed from man-made indigo dye, selvedge fabric, spun from the vintage looms in Japan...i could go on and on. Finally the perfect denim to quench my selvedge thirst
more goodies

Mr B also threw in a couple of Nike white label tees for good measure [you needn't, but much thanks]. These came out last year, and features the retro designs of famous soccer numbers [from various countries' soccer jerseys]; and LA '84.
Also had a package from my lovely cousin, stripe madness from Polo! I think i'm gonna be a zebra very soon, but who cares! haha. I'm blissed out with all the goods, thank y'all!
Starck + Puma: naked

Philippe Starck does his stylistic, streamlined and organic magic yet again with Puma. This time focusing on the "second skin". Check out the range of skin-tight underwear and base layers, form, fit, functional and sexy.

Whats hilarious is the version of story thats told on the site =)
iRiver MPlayer = omg, imusthave!!!

Just released in Korea, the new iRiver Mplayer is just awfully cute! Using the famous Mickey silhouette is one thing, successfully incorporating it into the product design is another! Check out the design sketches

Ladies and those young at heart will appreciate the incospicuous and unsuspecting wow-factor: it can be worn like jewellery and acessorize bags, totes, mobile phone and key fobs etc

Wanna know how to use? The Mickey ears simply become volume and track skip knobs! It doesn't hold much [2Gb or 200++ songs], but given a choice between this or the new ipod shuffle, i know what i'm choosing, ha!
No word on whether it'll be available in rest of the world, but if anyone is able to hit up Akihabara, please hook me up!

Broke out the NH Fragment tee, paired with skinny jeans and Stussy ProKeds

Chilling out on the morning train-ride to work
Welcome to Springfield

Inspired by Jeff, introducing Xymon Simpson =) (and no, kids, thats not a Futura tee, hahaha!!!)
Get yours done at Simpsons movie site.
Vans Simpsons movie

For a project that has been years in the making [no kidding, Matt registered the movie website more than 10yrs ago], its gonn be BIG this summer. I think any designer will kill to be involved in any Simpsons project, let alone have a free hand on collaborative footwear. Looking at the names in the list [all of which looks drawn on-point], i think its gonna be wild
Stussy HRJK10 x Porter
The Stussy Harajuku 10th celebration was a couple months back, and i still have not seen the end of the collabs!

This Porter pack looks awesome! Friends and fam always get these sorta swag, i just wish some would swing by my way...[wishful thinking yet again, but you never know]
Supreme s/s

Color variations of the Showbiz & AG "Goodfellas" album-inspired print; and new PhaseII tee [black looks fierce]

These lovely vinyl critters were created by Simone Legno of TokiDoki and StrangeCo.
Get some cutie apparel up at their shop as well
SlamJam revamp

Fresh new look for the boys in Milano, go check out the new presentation of proddy at SlamJam store. And if you're wondering how the apparel will fit, the boys gladly show you at the Features section. For those that have shopped @ SJ before, it's great to put a face to Riccardo finally! haha!
Big ups to the boys[and girls] for the new development [esp with the new stussy.EU chapter coming up]
Now this is what i call a real fan! Narrator from Unkle77 forum has compiled his own FULL-LENGTH music video to complement Unkle's track "Edit Music for a Film", edited from his extensive DVD movie collection:
Edit Music For a Film video
Heck i think you can call it a remix: "Edit Film for Music", props!
Sit through the entire vid, and recognise all the images/scenes used in the vid. My personal fave: the sword fight scene!
Big ups to Unkle77 mod Shivo for the info

summer time

If the Madras patchwork is too severe for you, this could work. Pair it with printed or striped button downs, Hockneys/Christo's and you're set ala Eric Clapton! ha

Good looks as well from Sophnet, love the stripey polo. Hirofumi hits the right spot yet again!
S2C summer tees
Found out that the "Killer Wave" print was done by Wes Humpston, part of the Summer line. So is this hottie:

Can't get any more OG Stussy Rastafari than Peter, Bob and Bunny. Basically Stussy fonts, plain and simple, but means so much more to others...
S2C x FujiRockFestival = OMG.OMG.OMG

Iggy Pop...ya kiddin' me?! I've got to have this tee! Anybody?!?!

Damn, i remember being the first to post about Rapha and their line of OG-vintage-bike-goodness, and now everyone's finally getting into it. Nonetheless, its niche marketing will [probably] ensure the hypesters don't get into it. Lovely piece of history with the Paul Smith collab, much like all Rapha garments, they all have a story to tell.
And that fixed.T? functionality, pure and simple
Nexus7 maddness again

Aw man, i can't take this much more or i'll become deadbroke. Tomohiro-san bringing more collegiate-based customs and cut&sew...and even more frickin' Moss hotness!
GDC x Gshock

Yep, been out in the hype-world for about a minute. Sold out in less time than that. Sheesh, simply can't believe it...even the lower-production collabs sold slower! Power of hype-machine in full how many peeps out there actually know GDC?!
Jeremy Pettis aka first to print this on a T wins

Jeremy Pettis does excellent prints, check out his latest book of 26 animals. Comes in downloadable font typography too. wait for kids to reprint its entirety on tees and claim DIY-ingenuity
singular surnames

Anna K still every bit a babe [forget about that Spanish dude] and Maggie Q does the PR route for Die Hard 4.0 alone. Now if thats not star-power, i don't know what is.
Fow sure, you'd know i'm typing nonsense and figuring out that she's wearing a pretty sheer dress. God bless hetro dress-designers!
