A true lifestyle brand, Bape has come out with not only about every article of clothing and accessory imaginable but also everything from wall clocks to dishware. Well now you can be the most exclusive person at your school or office as Bape's exclusive Nigo's Favorite Shop (NFS) has released some special notebooks and folders.

The stationary detailed to the bottom of the page.

Folders in both signature Bape camo and plaid.

Finally some screen cleaners and stickers from Gold Card members.

These notebooks and folders are only available to Bape Green and Gold cards members (you have to live in Japan, so don't get too excited) who have access to the online NFS section.

If you really want these supplies though keep checking Cliffedge for product updates as they get all NFS products.

Bruxe Spring 2009 Bags

After falling in love with their first season of bags last year, I was very excited to receive an email from Bruxe about the new line for Spring 2009 with some new colors and styles.

The Johnston Computer Pack

The Greene Three Day Pack

The Farrington Low Profile Pack

The new season sees some new colors as each canvas and patent leather bag comes in Black, Ocean, and Cement. Additional to the backpacks here, there is also a "Jefferson Duffle" and a "Sylvester Courier Bag" in the collection.

Need that Ocean Greene Three Day Pack in my life!

Check out a list of retailers that carry Bruxe here.


Too Black Guys - s/s '09 "Not For Sale" Video Lookbook

Too Black Guys takes a, alternative approach in presenting their 2009 Spring/ Summer line of apparel this year with a video lookbook.

The season is called "Not for Sale"

Always racially driven and paying an ode to classic figures, this year TBG plays off of Bill Cosby, Monopoly, BET and more. I have a feeling that "BET sucks" tee might do pretty well.

Available at Too Black Guys accounts soon.

Supreme x Nike SB Bruin

To introduce their new model, the Bruin, Nike SB has teamed up with Supreme for a few special edition pairs to lead the way.

The Supreme Bruin features a fully suede upper, a metallic swoosh, and a grain leather heel that reads "World" and "Famous" on the respective heels. The insoles are also metallic and read "Supreme" across the two with "World Famous" again in each. For a final small detail there is an embossed Supreme logo on the white rubber mid-sole.

Coming out the simple and clean colors of green, red, gray, and black, the Nike SB Supreme Bruin will be available on April 16th (I'm guessing at Supreme locations worldwide).

Oooms - Wooden USB Stick

While Mimobots still have a place in my heart, this new USB design from Dutch firm Oooms is pretty damn cool also.

"USB memory sticks are always nice to have around when transferring files from computer to computer. These sticks from studio OOOMS are made to stand out from their natural environment of computers and offices. The sticks are picked from the woods and are individually selected for their natural beauty, and then professionally handmade into unique and personal USB memory sticks."

Coming in 4gb, 2gb, 1gb, you can go grab the unique wooden USB drives through the Oooms store.
There is also a smaller looking 512mb version that can be grabber through the v-store.

Ever since losing my last USB I am in dire need of another! Wish all the cool ones weren't so expensive though. (Knew I shoulda gone after that YSL giveaway, oh well)

Neighborhood x Original Fake - Raw Denim

As the Neighborhood x Original Fake collection slowly trickles into accounts, one of the much anticipated raw denim pieces should be arriving shortly.

The simple 14oz, level 0 raw denim features the Kaws 'X' over the back pockets, which still will hold the traditional Neighborhood stitching. As always they will come in both indigo and black.

Look for these at any of the very few Neighborhood accounts and stores soon.

Adventures in College: Another Weekend Past

With graduation a little more than a month away, a job search at hand, community service to do, school work to get done, and oh yea a company to start, weekends are the perfect time to catch up on doing ......... well, nothing at all really.

Actually we did have about 250 cups to catch up on cleaning, which for some reason needed to happen all at once.

So we decided to use the bathtub as our sink for the project.

It took a solid hour or so or washing and rinsing but the damn job got done. Our boy Mike helped out.
Sadly I don't think that this amount of cups will ever be necessary again after college.


Sorry Johnny!

Then this morning after driving aimlessly for a couple of hours, grabbing some free samples at the grocery store, we somehow ended up over 30 minutes away from campus in the middle of nowhere. Then decided to come back and eat at the Asian buffet that's only like 5 minutes away.

When the waitress came over with some fortune cookies she had a special chocolate one for Meezy. I'm not saying it was racially driven or anything, but needless to say he was kind of in disbelief.

So I took it and got the ill fortune.
"To truly find yourself you should play hide and go seek alone"

A feast!

40 days left of college fill with more alcohol, friends, and Wale, Colin Monroe, Asher Roth, and T-Pain shows . Got to live it up.


Hot Chicks - Cool Kicks by Playboy x Leaders 1354

Chicago's famous local sneaker boutique, Leaders 1354, and world famous mens magazine Playboy, also founded in Chicago, have collaborated for a spread simply called "Hot Chicks - Cool Kicks."

The Leaders 1354 x Reebok - Reverse Jam

The Hundreds - Johnson Mid

Nike Dunk SB Hi "Big Gulp"

Supra Skytop

Supra Vaider

I'm not exactly a Playboy man but I thought that it was blog worthy and some big news for Leaders 1354.
The rest of the spread includes sneakers from Alife, Puma, Adidas and more from Nike and Supra. It can be seen here as modeled by Playboy Playmate (Miss January 2001) Irina Voronina.

I think this just became long time SwaggerDap reader, Matt's favorite post.

A Daft Punk pair of Be@rbricks has just come out at Colette.
A HUGE release (no pun intended) from Medicom as this is the 1st ever set of 400% Be@rbricks.

Wish these weren't going for $186US but have to say I'm a big fan of these. One year I swear I will be 1/2 of Daft Punk for Halloween, crazy helmets included.

Hurry and grab em now at Colette!

W-Taps x Bape take the next step

Tetsu Nishiyama, head designer behind the W-Taps brand has announced that he will be lead designer the core line with A Bathing Ape!

There is nothing I really cannot show yet
but from next season I will be chief designer
for the core line of A BATHING APE®
so look forward to it.

W-Taps have been collaborating with Bape for a while now, regularly producing T-shirts for the Nigo's Favourite Shop (NFS) section of Bape.

This announcement is huge though and leads me to believe that Tet will be not only designing W-Taps collab items but also the standard A Bathing Ape range as well? One wonders what Nigo has planned for himself next season?

This can only be good news for Bape as W-Taps with Tet are one of the few streetwear brands at the moment that are consistently putting out good gear.

Im really interested to see what they will do with the denim, as I feel this is A Bathing Apes weakest area.

Nike Air Yeezy Release Date #1

Out of the 3 colorways of the Nike Air Yeezy the 1st release will be the Zen Grey/Light Charcoal set to drop April 4th.
A detailed view:

As you probably would have guessed, being associated with Kanye, these will be extremely limited to certain Quickstrike and Tier 0 Nike accounts. For example Leaders 1354 of Chicago is already letting their customers know the business so they can prepare for the camp. So unless you already got them in the mail for free and have it like that, start checking if any of your local spots are getting these babies.

Next colorway will be the Black and Pink for the 1st week of May then the Net colorway for the 1st week of June. So if you miss on these keep saving up for those as the retail is will be $215.

In NYC, in addition to the 21 Mercer store, The House Of Hoops in Harlem, and both the 34th street locations of Footlocker and Footaction will now be getting the Yeezy.
