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?

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.

cold feet.

Admittedly, I no longer live in a place where freezing feet is an issue, but I certainly have not forgotten the terrible feeling of frozen feets. So for those of you who still have to deal with this problem every time it gets cold, or if you're visiting a colder-than-usual place and want to keep your toes toasty, I've got the solution.

Those tiny disposable feet warmers got nothing on these bad boys. Heated shoe insoles that can be controlled by an app. killer.

The kickstarter campaign for these babies has reached its funding goals so production will begin soon. Better sign up quick if you want to get them before they're full priced.

you're welcome.

gustin.

gustin is legitimately changing the game. They're not making things that have never been made before, and they're not creating the most extravagent and unique product. But they are, however, changing the way things are purchased, made, and delivered.

the story.

the company has been around for 8 years, making premium selvedge denim and high-end menswear featured in high-end boutiques across the US for around $205. Focusing on high quality, well-made products for style-centered customers. 

what sets them apart is where they went from there. they call it crowdourced fashion. Crowsourcing their products eliminates waste, and allows them to connect on a more personal level with their buyers.

how it works.

1. Gustin decides to produce a particular item of menswear. This item could be a shirt, a pair of jeans, a belt, anything.

2. They design the product and give you a sneak peak on their website, using pictures, and descriptions of the materials and manufacturing.

3. You decide that you want to pick up said product, and so you go online and "back" that item on the gustin website. (Just like a Kickstarter campaign)

4. Once the product reaches the set number of backers required, production begins, payment is made, and an estimated delivery date is set. (Just like a Kickstarter campaign)

5. Now you play the waiting game until you recieve your product. (Yes, just like a Kickstarter campaign)

What's great about this process is that, not only are you receiving an extremely limited edition item, but you're getting it at a fraction of the cost. Instead of spending $200+ on a pair of selvedge denim, you're spending around $80, and having it delivered to your front door.

Sooooo....what are you still doing here? Stop by the Gustin Website and start backing some new digs.

dyer & jenkins f/w 2013 was funded.

if you backed this project you already know it was funded and you've most likely sent your money in for your goods. if you didn't back them, you missed your opportunity to snag some quality basics. don't worry, you'll get another shot next collection and who knows? they might have a few extra pieces made from this collection to swoop. if i get any info on that i'll be sure to post about it. also i'll get some pictures up when i receive my sweatshirt from them. it'll prob end up on the dripcult instagram account. congrats again dyer & jenkins. i’m stoked this got backed and it’s getting made.

dyer & jenkins is trying to bring everyone a solid product at an even better price. every collection is a small batch meaning it's limited and will go quick. don't miss out on this opportunity to scoop up some american made products. seriously though, go over to their kickstarter and donate. i really want my sweat shirt so at the very least help out for that reason. you can get an american made tee for 12 bones. that's a solid deal. jump over donate and get my info on the kickstarter here

lasso.

found these awesome slippers on kickstarter last week. So simple. So unique.

They reached their monetary goal awhile back already so this is just a good way to get in on them before they start selling at actual retail price.

They obviously won't be the best shoes for hiking up the face of a mountain, or for running marathons. But if you're looking for a comfy pair of slippers to keep your feet warm around the house, these are a great option. Check out their kickstarter page to learn more about the project by clicking here.

Kickstart with Parlor Hawk.

You probably already know what a kickstarter is, but for those of you who don't, allow me to briefly lay some knowledge upon your person.

Kickstarter (kih-ck-stah-r-tur) noun

1. A starter, as of a motorcycle, that operates by a downward kick on a pedal.

2.) A website created with the sole purpose of generating funding for special creative endeavors.

It is the second definition of which I speak. I do not, however, wish to inform you of the idea of kickstarter, but rather, bring to your attention one specific kickstarter project: Parlor Hawk's new album.

Parlor Hawk is a Utah/ California based five-piece indie/folk band. There first album Hoarse and Roaring released in 2010 and was featured in the Best of iTunes Indie Spotlight. Needless to say, they're good. Let's face it, we wouldn't be having this discussion if they weren't.

I've seen them live at least six times, and trust me, they're worth supporting. I'm not going to spend time giving you their backstory, or describing every detail of their music right now, what I'm going to do is provide you with the opportunity to listen to their music and learn a little bit more about them. After that, the choice is yours, but I strongly encourage you to show your support for Parlor Hawk and for music culture as a whole. Let's help them do something great. Let's help them create an album.

Look at it this way, by participating in their kickstarter, not only do you get to support local artists and the creative culture as a whole, but you also get free stuff. When you give back, you get back. Donating to the cause, in this case, allows you to choose from a number of rewards, including pre-ordering the album, shirts, autographs, artwork, drum lessons, clothing, and a handful of other rare items as well. 

Parlor Hawk "Every Bone" 

 

Parlor Hawk "Saddest Song"

Parlor Hawk "Home"

Now that you've had a taste, don't you want to be part of this amazing new release? I knew you would. For more information on where and how to donate, or even just to learn more about this project, click Here.
