adidas - eqt.

Meet my current favorite adidas sneakers: the EQT. Just got a pair and they're really really comfy. I'd actually say they're more comfy than the Nike Rosche and have a similar looking profile. I think this is the new Adidas cash cow now that the NMD has been out and about for quite awhile. Look for new colorways coming out constantly.

scoop them up from adidas.com

the pliqo bag.

So a couple years ago Delta Airlines stole my favorite suit. I had very recently purchased, and had tailored, a brand new italian wool, charcoal with light grey windowpane two-button suit. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever owned. Ever. It was like looking into the face of an angel. 

I gave it to the flight attendant to hang in the closet during the flight. Then, Delta failed to return it to me when I left the plane, and when I contacted customer support, they were "unable to locate it". So that was super cool. Like, really cool. Like, so cool I went into a deep depression and became a recluse for the next 12 years. 

Luckily, I've come up with the perfect solution for this type of problem: don't freaking trust an airline with anything you care about. The Pliqo suit bag is the tangible version of that solution.

Finally, a suit bag that actually folds without wrinkling the living hell out of your suit. And so small, you can actually keep it with you, whether as a shoulder bag, strapped to your carry on, or just in your normal luggage.

I've already put in my order, but if my recommendation isn't enough to sell you, check out their kickstarter video and see for yourself. You can thank me later.

Has anyone else ever had a similar experience on an airline, or am I just the most unlucky human?

vuori.

Ho.Ly.Crap. You guys, I've found the holy grail of shorts. First of all, it's important to point out that I'm not much of a shorts-wearing person. Like, generally, unless I'm going to the gym or playing soccer, I'm not going the shorts route. I'm jeans all day. But alas, my mind has been opened to beauty that is Vuori. 


Our friends over at Vuori sent us over a couple pairs and I've been wearing them nonstop ever since. These things are insanely comfy. They're crazy lightweight, they stretch in every direction, and they hold up like a champ. 

Made from 4-way stretch fabric and an anti-odor finish built, these shorts are moisture wicking and quick drying. I've worn them to the gym, to the beach, to the park, our to run errands, and at all times around the house.

There are two main fits (not including the board-short specific fit): the Kore and the Banks. The Kore is a bit slimmer, but honestly, both designs are killer and are super versatile, and come in sooo many color/pattern options.

 

I love these things so much, I immediately bought two additional pairs. Yeah, they're THAT good. Do yourself a favor, and pick some up.

just another american company making dope backpacks? well, yeah, but they're still dope backpacks.

I'm a sucker for vintage styles with a modern finish, and these bags are no exception.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.

Just picked up this gem and it's a breath of fresh air. Finally, a lifestyle improvement book that doesn't hinge on flowery, non-sensical, anecdotal phrases about turning lemons into lemonade or some other fruit into a tasty beverage. This book tells it like it is. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it."

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life. It's pretty inexpensive and pretty enjoyable to get through. I highly recommend picking it up.

But if you prefer, feel free to read through some hot garbage like The Secret so you can just pretend life is full of rainbows and unicorns. Your call.

how to create a unique/successful minimalist watch brand.

This. is. gold. I can't take credit for writing this, but it's just so good I had to share it. I think this is happening in a lot of areas besides just minimalist watches, but this is spot on.

north face x supreme spring/summer '17.

well, if you were debating buying a North Face jacket at a higher than reasonable price, and just weren't sure if you wanted to pull the trigger on a $120 seasonal layer, don't worry! Because now, you can spend 3 times that much on a jacket with the word "Supreme" on it!

 

That's right, the North Face x Supreme collaboration is back for spring/summer 2017 and the full line has been announced for the low low price of ALL YOUR MONIES.

Not interested in a jacket at the moment? no worries, you can spend $368 on some ski pants meant for the streets in case there's a freak snowstorm on your way to work.

I know I sound cynical, but that's just because I totally am. I honestly think that Supreme collabs are usually super fresh. But to be honest, I'm a little tired of the price you have to pay these days to have the word "supreme" on something. Maybe that's just me. Take a look at the full line below and see the prices at the bottom and you tell me if I'm wrong.

Gore-Tex® Pullover: $488
Gore-Tex® Pant: $368
Polartec® Fleece Jacket: $268
Big Haul Backpack: $158
Headband: $54

y-3 sport.

the y-3 sport collection for spring/summer '17 by genius YOHJI YAMAMOTO is here, and it's dope...and it's also insanely expensive. but still dope though. but also really really really expensive.

on the bright side, if you find an extra $700+ to spend on a jacket, you can totally look like a ninja while you exercise on the side of a mountain.

in all seriousness, a majority of the line is super cool and worth checking out, if nothing else than to get ideas and inspiration.

Luftgekühlt.

since air-cooled porsches seem to be the latest car trend, we mine as well talk about them and two guys that probably like them a lot more than you. 

we're talking about Patrick Long and Howie Idelson, the two dudes that created Luftgekühlt and are as rennsport as it gets. Long is a porsche team driver too, so yeah, he's definitely a bigger porsche guy than you. And before you jump to the conclusion on the name luftgekühlt, it literally translates to air-cooled in german which works out nicely for the dudes no matter how instagram it sounds.

Now that you know what luftgekühlt means, i should probably tell you what it is. luftgekühlt is an event for the air-cooled porsche fanatics and die hards. where porsche is religion and the only thing that people care about are the cars. the event was created to get away from the stuffy atmosphere of golf courses and polos where you'd usually see these classics and collector status porsches and just have fun while being around rad cars.

the main gist of this post was to tell you what luftgekühlt is so that i can tell you that luftgekühlt4 is officially on the books. mark your calendar, the first weekend of may 2017 at deus in los angeles you can get your fill of air-cooled porsches and then some. i dropped a couple drool worthy porsche pics in here, but you can go to luftgekühlt.com for more or just simply go to the google machine. dealer's choice. 

*images provided by Luftgekült and Drew Phillips. 

Naturally, a RWB porsche was at last year's event. Hate them or love them, they're a staple in porsche culture now and nakai-san is regarded as a legend or a mass-porsche-murderer.

want les essentiels - montoro.

it's not every day you stumble upon a beautiful pair of black derby shoes. well, today was my day and since i have this platform to share, it's your day too.

this clean and handsome pair of derby shoes comes from want les essentiels and goes by the name montoro.

upon first look they appear to be a basic pair of derby style shoes (which is what initially caught my interest).

then you start to look at them and you notice the little details. 

you notice the texture in the leather. the subtle color and material difference that doesn't instantly pop out at you. you notice much more thought was put into them when you stop and look.

stare. enjoy. buy
