half full
End of the week and my tank's half full...optimistic? more like trying to psyche myself up for the coming week. Somehow i think its pretty pathetic to be thinking too much of the following week on a Saturday. Leave the worrying to Monday i'd say...lets just enjoy the present
Marc Jacobs

Probably the most understated color of the range, but i love it all the same. Heck, it'll match all my dull shirts anyway haha
Visvim Eiger Sanction

Package arrived from S78's Oz storage (yeah storage, scary eh?), Eiger Sanction shorts to relax in. One of the perks of staying in the equatorial region, i don't have to worrk about winter... and it should function well in torrential rains.
Stussy Luminox

I swear those dudes at Stussy enjoy torturing me. It took me a while to hunt down the first Luminox collab and now they dropped, not 1, but 3 different variations! argh! This rendition has a bigger tech velcro wrist strap that befitted its co-brand's clandestine heritage. Anyhow, grab the orange one from Stussy Direct while you can
Bodega beef jerky!

Awesome packaging from the wacky guys of Bodega, for the Lumber Jack Purcell collaboration of Bodega and Converse
nice 1's

Now this one really takes autographed kicks to the next level. Nike invited some VVIPs for a sneak preview of Jordan Brands upcoming development and decided to bless 'em with these laser-etched the guests' sizes. Now that's a nice touch for those influencers
Atmos x Porter Pendleton
Getting into the season of all things woolen, plaid and checked, the guys from Knowitnothing brought in some limited stock of the Atmos Porter Pendleton packs and pouches.

Modeled by KIN's resident cam-whore...LOL

I like the pattern work on them...did they make any messenger or sling bags for this range?
Atmos x New Balance 574

Atmos just doesn't let up on the plaid-rage...peep the Atmos 574 "buffalo check" collection.

With mismatched colors rivalling the "what the dunk" SB, yet somehow working well to bring out Atmos' trademark "standout" image, i'm liking both pairs!
Info via

New accessories for G1950. That ring-pendant is too awesome, available in white or black crystals. Also check out the cute little "on/off" alarm clock, that operates based on the position is has been titled. ha
Goodenough JP
The woven belt's been frothing on the rivival wave for a while now...if i can get a good price, i'd want this as my next belt!

Nexus7 Smedley

I want this skull beanie so bad...
Fred Perry Emma Cook

British womenswear designer Emma Cook joins Fred Perry's growing list of guest designers on the Blank Canvas project. Simplistic touch of the famed golden laurels? Maybe, but those 2 pictured above are straight up lovely. Get 'em for the girls this Chrissy
Milkfed AW07

More sweet clothings for the girls...those are hearts! Oh, where can i get them online for my gal? any info, T?
wanted: w)taps "henson" T

This has been out for a long minute, but if anyone has discount hook ups for them, pls help! Danke!
Its Thanksgiving, and i giv thanks for:
Vanessa Minnilo letting us join her on vacation;

i've officially joined the "i hate Nick" club...dayumm!

no title
Long time in a while since i've hibernated at home for the weekend. Pretty much brain-fried from the week's work, i'm just glad for down time. Guess it'll be back to my original wya of random pics and stuff... =)
Glut of swoosh-related stuff:
ACG pack huaraches

I quite love the colors of this..just coz i have such a nostalgic feel for ACG back in the days. Bring back the day-glo and nylons, more nylons!
Set just dropped at Proper. Hook ups anyone??? *cue oliver-twist "please"*
nike hk expansion

This one is too cute: tiny flyers in orange shoe boxes to inform all about nike hk's expansion!
LeBron V commercial: "You want to be better than me"
Beginning of new era, evolving from the days of wanting to "Be like Mike"...

ads via W+K
nike "UGHS"
Pretty apologetic that i had to show you guys ugly shoes the previous post. Sometimes you gotta know the ugly's to know the pretty's, nah mean? hahahaha

Winter seems not only to freeze the world, but the brains as well. Perhaps the people at the factories forgot to know when to stop. Coz theres no way the legendary ACG Air Moc's can be deformed as such. Perhaps its the new Nike x UGG. Perhaps they make them in the same factory in China...theres just no excuse for this

*edit* ok there is an excuse for this. apparently the purple moc hi's are for milkfed...good luck hunting for a pair though. gracias to T for the re-clarification =)
alphabet soup
Also posted about the Air Max 90 "alphabet" pack. Interestingly, i've had a turn of heart after seeing more. The Air Stab Premium and AM90 are pretty on-point for the upcoming season. Cop them for daily beaters

But they seriously need to rename them like "sesame street" or "jeremy scott" pack.
4th pic in the right corner is a windrunner overcoat...very interesting! anyone with more info?
Subcrew Garni

I don't normally cover Subcrew stuff, but in the spirit of the season, this Garni creation is blinged-out just right! Should be dropping next month. Knowin' the HK/China markets, just wait a couple of weeks for the cheaper knock-offs lol
MM x MMJ theatre8

Next act casted by MasterMindJapan for Theatre8 features the queen of all pin-ups and quite possibly the first to grace a printed tee: Marilyn Monroe. Peep more "i bet you can't price this tee higher than me" MMJ products at the site.
Look Ma, No Brakes
So that was what those tee-prints meant

Completely left out of my head till i was reminded by the flyer. Initiated by La Carrera Cycles, graf kings Stash and Futura inked their artwork on limited edition (but of course) legendary bike-maker Ernesto Colnago's bike frames.

Kicked off by the Bull Run charity event in memory of the late tenor Luciano Pavarotti, La Carrera will host a bike exhibition from Nov17-Dec17. The Colnago Master Pista bike frames will be back i production and both Stash and Futura concoctions will be available to public(ie: commoners like us) from Jan'08

Peep the frame designs (Fu's polka dots are awesome, TDF jerseys-colors!). And of course there's gonna be tees, not everyone can afford those frames! separate frame-matching tees and an event collaborative tee to round it off.
Hit up the official site for info/updates

*edit: check out detailed pics of Futura's edition here
GDEH reversible down vest
Down jackets are a godsend in chilly weather. A vest is pretty versatile with sweats, hoodies and those in-between weathers

A reversible one is great for expanding the wardrobe just a little more
Guerillazine No5
I'm still waiting for the re-opening of the (+65) CDG guerilla store (whispers put it at Jan/Feb dateline). In the meantime, peep some store shots from 'zine No.5 (including the new Warsaw deployment)

Speaking of which, the Warsaw store is the 3rd iteration in Poland, quirky-typically opening in a former fruit store. The first? under a bridge in an abandoned passageway. Brilliant
Heidi Klum for Max

Theres something criminal about getting Hidi naked and then shrouding(and airbrushing) her in sheer. Its like buying a f**kin' expensive shoe, not wearing it and keeping it on ice and... oh wait, never mind
