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


come together

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.

danner x see see motorcycles.

here's a fun little video that danner did for their stumptown 2014 lookbook. they teamed up with see see motorcycles to show us what some good friends, bikes and boots can give you.

drôle de monsieur. 

this sweatshirt is definitely on the list. i've been wanting this sweatshirt for some time now, but it's impossible to get.

it's always sold out and sells out ridiculously fast. they release restocks on cest time and that usually means ridiculous hours of the night for me.

the paris based brand, drôle de monsieur, is responsible for this clean and simple crew neck sweatshirt.

it's a basic sweatshirt that has 'not from paris madame' embroidered on the front that comes in three colors. it comes in black, maroon and green. obviously i'm leaning towards the black crewneck.

sweatshirt season will eventually reach southern california and i intend to be ready. this sweatshirt would help me with that

check out their website and keep checking if you're interested in picking up a sweatshirt here

bombay bicycle club.

I was listening to this album yesterday driving along the coast on Highway 1. I had already forgotten how good it was. If nothying else, most of these tracks will make your monday feel like an artistic montage from a movie. If you haven't already gotten this album, I highly recommend it. 


carry me

it's alright now

Gap x GQ.

Gap Inc. is the largest american clothing retailer and third largest in the world. The company is comprised of several brands, including Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, Intermix, and Piperlime. While the Gap brand has always focused on classic, american style, they've recenly collaborated with gq and the winners of gq's best new menswear designers in america. this is the third year this collaboration has taken place, and this year it's yielded, by far, the best results.

here's a look at my favorite pieces from the 4 collections from the 4 designers:




john elliott + co



Brooklyn Tailors



En noir



visit Gap's website for item details and purchase, or stop by select stores to see them in person and try them on. Since these collections are still in the process of being released, not all of the pieces are available for purchase yet. But be patient my young padawans, your time will come.

isaora: staydrybetter.

i can't resist a solid, waterproof jacket. they get me everytime.

i love windbreaks, exo-shells, and most anything with gore-tex in it. wearing it may be a another story, but i'm still about it. i have plenty of windbreakers and shells i never wear, but they remind me of the days my buddies and i were into cycling which naturally reminds me of good times. 

isaora offers it's latest weather proof jackets for this up coming 2014 f/w season. there's gonna be rain and possibly snow, depending on where you are, so you better get an outer layer worthy of handling it.

i want to throw one of these jackets on and head out into some weather. i'll be the first to tell you that i hate weather and i hate the cold. that's why i live in southern california, where we have one season year round and anything around 65 is considered cold, but looking at these images makes me want to take on some rain.

the jackets are clean and minimal. no extras or unnecessary crap slapped onto them, just a simple looking jacket that protects you from the wet weather. all you need. 

check out the full collection at isaora's website here

“Style is the answer to everything.
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art

Bullfighting can be an art
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art

Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men,
although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.

When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun,
that was style.
Or sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
García Lorca.

I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is the difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, naked, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me.” 

― Charles Bukowski

ne.sense 2014 fall/winter “outcast” lookbook.

ne. sense released this beautiful lookbook for their first store's grand opening.

they're using the lookbook to show off what they're going to carry in the store and it looks great.

if find yourself in taiwan this oct. 11th you should probably hit up the store. 

for the rest of us, we can still enjoy the images they've blessed us with.
