the brixton messer.

cult, meet my favorite hat: the brixton messer.

the right blend of folk/americana and modern appeal.

Brixton calls it the messer fedora, but I don't think anyone would mistake you for kevin federline, or a brittney spears obsessed tween girl. You can scoop one up here in green or black or beige for $52

fragment design x nike roshe ld-1000 sp.

i remember sitting at brunch with some friends when this news got dropped on me. i don't remember exactly how we got on the topic of sneakers, but my buddy ace was like, “have you seen the cortez-roshes that are coming out?” 

To which myself and my two other friends we were with stopped eating to exclaim, “what??” 

Ace then nonchalantly responds with, “yeah, look it up. the roshe ld-1000’s,”

naturally i scramble for my iPhone and immediately google them. the heavy hitters i found waiting for me were exactly what i expected. the ld-1000’s are a combination of two of the greatest sneakers (in my opinion) ever made. 

it was like the cortez was reborn.

my friends and i grew up in the hardcore music scene. with every scene, there is a certain style and way you dress that shows you identify with that scene. In the hardcore scene it was usually black t-shirts, band t-shirts, camo pants, camo shorts, dark blue jeans, too much murray’s pomade and a couple different types of shoes. The shoes you wore were either jack purcells, chuck taylors or a pair of nike cortez. There were a few other shoes worn, but those were the main choices for us young and angry adolescents. When I was introduced to the ld-1000’s it was like the glory days all over again. 

as time goes on your style and tastes change. these days i live in my roshes and listen to a lot less hardcore music. roshes are my current favorites because they offer two amazing qualities – style and comfort. i put them on in the morning and often forget they’re on my feet. no seriously, that’s how comfortable they are to me which is saying something. usually the first two things i do when i get home is put my car keys in my tray and then take off my shoes. when i’m wearing my roshes i tend to leave them on and forget i have them on. long story short, i love my roshes.

so when i found out that nike teamed up with fragment design and created the roshe ld-1000 sp i lost my shit. i instantly decided then and there that i need to own these shoes. one of my favorite past nike shoe designs and my current favorite nike shoe design come together to create one beautiful pair of shoes only brings one word to mind – sold. 

unfortunately, these shoes aren’t out yet. the official date has been moved around a few times, but it seems like the real official release date is set on November 6th, 2014. I check every couple days, plus they’re blowin’ up all over the sneaker blogs and instagram which makes it easy to keep up on. they should be available in select retailers and on nike’s website, but we all know how that goes. good luck to you if you’re trying to cop a pair, i know i will be.

invisible bike helmet

In keeping with yesterday's bike theme, i thought i'd share this gem with you. 

The Invisible Bicycle Helmet | Fredrik Gertten from Focus Forward Films on Vimeo.

Is it actually an invisible helmet? no

Does the helmet scarf thing look bulky and awkward? yeah, a bit.

Are the crash testing videos laugh-out-loud hilarious? absolutely.

but the creativity and innovation in a market that really hasn't done much since it's inception is still pretty cool.

They're calling it an airbag for cyclists, and you can read more about it here.

The Scandinavian Bikehook.

bikes are one of the greatest machines to ever be created. you really can't argue that, it’s less of an opinion and more of a fact these days. 

Bicycles are ridden all over the globe. It’s a reliable source of transportation and let’s be honest, they’re fun. I love bikes. I have a stable of them in my room. Yes, my room. They are so loved they can’t be stored in a dark, dirty garage. Even though my mountain bike is currently covered in dirt and mud which makes no sense for it to be in my room – I digress. Some of my bikes are hanging on my wall and others are propped up against my wall. This is where The Scandinavian Bikehook would come in handy. I have a wall hook that I hate. It’s a pain and its made in China, that really says it all. 

The Scandinavian Bikehook is a simple, solid design that makes storing your bike easy. I mean look at it, it’s not a complicated product – and that’s good. The Bikehook comes from a place that’s no stranger to the bicycle, Denmark. I spent some time over in Copenhagen this summer which is basically the bike capital of the world and let me tell you, you need a bike over there. Public transportation is fine, cars are a pain and walking sucks. The bicycle is king in Copenhagen and I lived on my bike while I was there. Quick shoutout to the homie who, uh, lets say ‘lent’ me his or her bike, I thank you and sorry. 

The Bikehook’s simple design allows it to be utilized in any space, big or small. Use one hook to hang the bike vertically or take advantage of both hooks to store your bike horizontally. The Bikehook is also made out of solid wood. You’re not getting some cheap plastic piece of shit. You’re investing in something that’s built to last. 

We’ve got a few images in the post and the video at the bottom for you guys to check out, but head on over to the kickstarted to get a little more info on Scandinavian Bikehook project here. Don't forget to back the project while you're there.

winter chucks.

Converse jumped on the waterproof bandwagon and dropped their line of weatherproof all-stars. for only $60, they're definitely worth a shot. take a look:

Designed with a gusseted tongue and brass eyelets, the water resistant Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Rubber is built to help protect your feet during rainy day weather and music festival mud pits. Stop by the Converse site for more info.

beatle monday.

I just recently created my own beatles playlist of their greatest hits and it's amazing. Not that my playlist is amazing (although let's be honest, it really is), but the music is still so dang good. No band has stood the test of time as well as the beatles. Their hits are just as catchy, and just as popular as they ever were. 

They started an entire movement, invented their own hairstyle, and made women lose their friggin minds all at the same time. And they did it very well dressed... until the drugs. And even with the drugs they occasionally killed it.

 

Little known fact: beatles songs destroy mondays. It's science.

i've just seen a face 

a hard day's night

can't buy me love

here comes the sun

abc's of men's fashion - 54

colour.

The trick to incorporating colour is in pairing a strong and interesting colour (such as red or electric blue or green) with a more classic, safe colour (such as navy or charcoal grey). contrast is key--too many colors will make you look like tacky rainbow. The art is in nonchalance.
