weekend/weakened warrior
Summer's truly on now, felt the ridiculously warm weather amid the insane humidity. Boy, just wish i can soak in a tub of cold water all day...
I couldn't even be bothered to venture anywhere else, anything in the sun just seems too far away...okok, on-point characteristics of an old man, what the heck, i could care less lol
It is only these times you truly appreciate the icy blasts of airconditioning in shopping malls (global warming be damned). Lots of warm-up (yeap, pun) sales as a prelude to the annual crazy sales season (aka "summer"). Got a lovely deal for the '08 L'eau d'Issey for the lady to add to her collection of Issey summer fragrances

Uniqlo|Fenom|N(N)
Accompanied an aunt to town to pick up a Tag Autoracer for my uncle's b-day pressie...prob one of the fastest pick ups i've ever seen (haha)...so some ladies do shop like men, heh
mail drops
Couple of stuff in the mail the past week
Bapexclusive "angry apehead" print

Yet another holy grail picked up. No, don't ask me exactly how many constitutes a holy grail, or final last search, hahaha!
One of the hardest search back in the day, so glad i managed to track down one at a low price... now to find more :)
DJ Krush MiLight - Mowax - Futura2000

this one came out of the blue during the usual hunting rounds. Around the same time (1997)of DJ Krush's LP MiLight released under Mowax label, the LP sleeve featured F2K's artwork. The tee print captures the artwork, showing both front and back of the canvas. Dopeness

streetweartoday
Perhaps reflective of the current dearth of creativity in streetwear as we knew it recently, i couldn't find much interesting stuff from latest issue of STW2D. I did however find this spread involving kids utterly cute...maybe i'll direct them to Mr A's attention, haha

funny how the term "kids wear" will still be apt even in the grown up form


A sneaky peek at up and coming Brasil streetwear,
and Glen E Friedman's tie-up with Shephard - Obey


and of course, cover story, Johnny Schillereff of Element skateboards

By contrast, Monocle is growing from strength to strength, becoming the current affairs read du jour

Lost of fash mags tell y about deck shoes and nautical wear, but how many have this spread? nada
