Vans - Lead Plaid Pack


Vans has definitely made me think about how much stuff you can and cannot match with plaid..this is one of those times. Though, the Classic Slip On and the Boat Shoe are kinda dope. Available now @ Proper.

An Open Letter To Karmaloop.com (Contains Cuss Words)



(seriously, who the fuck sits down to actually make shit like this?)

Dear Karmaloop.com,

Please get rid of all these fuckin lame and tired ass parody graphic t-shirts. I remember back when you had clothing and sneakers that were actually worth something and now you've picked (all that i can see) up nothing but fuckin stupid shirts with rap lyrics and pop culture non-sense printed on them. Im sure they're brands that are well on their way (out the door) and you guys are giving them a chance to get a little shine by buying their clothing lines but in all honestly, you're online shop is pretty much worthless and tends to be a bit much on the eyes due to all the loud ass color schemes of neon shades here and there.

Hopefully you weed out some of this shit soon or...you know what, fuck it.

Thanks.

Wow. Wtf Is Goin On.



Some people will DO ANYTHING to get a record deal nowadays. But, more than likely Im sure someone out there thought this shit was cool and whatnot. Also, a quick note to this group...you wont go anywhere with lyrics like these or simple beats produced in five minutes.

Thanks for your contribution to ruining rap music.

Common, Talib & Sadat X - 1999



Classie hip-hop from the Soundbombing series that used to come out on the Rawkus label. Man, this label was running things for a couple of years and then boom....nothing. I think they went bankrupt or bad marketing. For whatever its worth, good music none the less and also check the first shot of the late Harold Hunter (KIDS, Zoo York) in this!

A.IN.T


A.IN.T was started out of the guys hate of khaki browns, camo's and tag logo designs.

Art in Transit or A.IN.T for short is now bringing a fresh take on British Street wear from London Out.

The brand name A.IN.T was pulled from a classic image found in Keith Haring art book from the 1980's. A chalk illustration on a New York subway entitled Art in Transit explains, “The concept behind it being that anything can be art and transit is motion, which suits the way we work, think and live our daily sh*t.”

The A.IN.T philosophy and drive for difference is not just reflected in the design itself but also with the collaboration of British street wear pioneer and Maharishi, MHI head honcho Hardy Blechman in product production, and Tyrone LeBon son of prolific late eighties ID street photographer, Mark LeBon, shooting the collection.


A.IN.T is proud to be British, showing this through heavy graphics and cool colour ways. The Spring A.IN.T collection is only available in 15 of the top street wear stores in the UK
