1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Word. I'm a local, used to come in and shop a lot, taken a break... Out of necessity. That jacket is fire though. So you'll be releasing it on 9/10 more or less?

    New Fred Perry X Raf Simons just arrived...

    It’s fair to say, at this point, that Fred Perry is timeless. Their designs don’t lurch from trend to trend; they are what they are, and they are continually adopted by each successive generation.

    Raf Simons, on the other hand, is thoroughly modern. His designs are not only famous in their own right, but have made him a highly valued collaborative partner for several prestigious and iconic brands. What makes Raf Simons an ideal partner is his ability to tailor his modernism to the structure and feel of the original piece. For example, when working with footwear, classic tennis shoes will get a slight, contemporary tweak, while technological runners will be downright avant garde.

    The former sensibility defines the Raf Simons x Fred Perry collection. Staples like the pique polo shirt or the crew neck t-shirt don’t require a reinventing of the wheel, but subtle alterations are bold and striking when applied to designs that normally remain consistent over time. This collaboration truly brings out the best in both brands, which makes something entirely new out of these classics.

    New Fred Perry Editorial just dropped...

    When a subculture becomes as far ranging as punk, and subsections within the larger subculture develop, there are bound to be differences in interpretation. Still, it seems odd for anyone to claim, as is too often the case, that fashion and punk are not compatible. Fashion is a part of every youth subculture, but there are few, if any examples of fashion being so integral to a movement’s central ethos as it was to punk.

    The 1970s are, generally, not remembered fondly in terms of fashion. In the UK, the sartorial disaster zone was downright critical. It’s entirely possible that David Bowie, Brian Ferry and Marc Bolan were the only people in the country who managed to get through the first half of that decade unscathed. Although, the number of people who attempted to look like David Bowie whilst suffering from the significant handicap of not being David Bowie, was a major contributor to the fashion woes of the time. Elsewhere, conventional hippie markers like unstyled long hair, baggy army surplus jackets, and incorrectly fitting pants like bellbottoms and flares were still common. Those who looked to athletic heroes for inspiration came back with distressingly wide sideburns and hair that was, somehow, both lank and voluminous at the same time. On the other end of the spectrum, Rod Stewart’s plaid suits, collars wide enough to land helicopters on, and bubble perms passed for style. To make a long story short, it was a mix of the dour and the ridiculous...SEE MORE

    Vans Vault just did a OG ERA LX with WTAPS...

    Japan’s WTAPS made its name working with two staples of casual fashion, military surplus and classic, midcentury, collegiate, preppy wear. While fairly simple sounding, in theory, these are two styles that require a deft design touch. With military inspired looks, go too heavy and you end up as the poster child for a “if you see something, say something campaign.” With preppy classics, go overboard, and you’ll end up looking like one of Billy Zabka’s henchmen circa 1983. This is why WTAPS abides by the motto “placing things where they should be.”

    The Anaconda, a collaborative effort with Vans Vault, applies the elegant but unobtrusive style of WTAPS to the OG Era LX. The result, a snakeskin textured leather, available in black, blue or white, perfectly captures the aesthetic spirit of Vans Vault and WTAPS. A shoe that superficially shares the look of a standard Vans model is made extraordinary through expert design and attention to detail. In short, this collaboration showcases the best that both brands have to offer.

    Adidas x Wing + Horns apparel just arrived...

    If you’ve ever watched or listened to one of those shows where panelists yell sports opinions at each other, you’ve probably heard some variation on the argument that true greatness is defined by the consistent, effortless execution of the basics. It’s practically a cliché at this point, but there is an element of truth to it. The difference between pure flash and substance is the difference between a YouTube highlight video and a full trophy cabinet.

    On a purely superficial level, there is very little to separate one pair of sweatpants from another. So when these sportswear staples are your stock in trade, there has to be a powerful distinguishing feature that makes people actively seek out your brand. Canada’s Wings + Horns have made an entire mission statement out of unfailingly delivering the highest quality basics. Progressive design, premium material choices, and sharp attention to detail have put Wings + Horns above the pack.

    For Fall 2016, Wings + Horns bring this sensibility to a collaborative effort with Adidas. While the brand with the three stripes are, themselves, no strangers to the notions of simplicity that give their classic pieces a contemporary feel in perpetuity, teaming up with Wings + Horns ups the ante.

    Two footwear silhouettes, the classic Gazelle and the modern ZX Flux ADV and a range of sportswear apparel combine the athletic heritage of Adidas with the elevated construction and sophisticated sensibility of Wings + Horns, taking the athleisure concept to new heights.

    ** Each link that redirects you to a specific garment, unless there's a single garment on a row, will be of the piece that is on the left hand side. If you would like to check out the alternate color or a different piece as a whole, simply click on SHOP ADIDAS and each piece will be laid out separately for you to look at.

    New Air ZM Tennis Classic collaboration just arrived...

    NikeLab and Fragment make ideal collaborative partners. The minimal, contemporary, conceptual concept is an integral part of NIkeLab and Fragment’s design philosophies.

    The Nike Tennis Classic, a timeless silhouette that thrives when presented in the simplest possible way is perfect for this kind of project. The ‘RGB’ concept shows off the classic side of the Tennis Classic and the modernist sensibility of NikeLab and Fragment at the same time. The white leather construction and perforated swoosh design are as old-school as it gets. The textured, colored heel caps, bearing RBG lettering, according to their respective colors, are a subtle tweak that goes a long way. Not only does the splash of color really pop against the otherwise total white, but the understated, sans-serif RGB are a meta aware nod to digital design itself.
