A rather interesting reaction from Shawn Stussy regarding the latest BE@RBRICK x Stussy collaboration for one of the series 19 chase figures.
Okay, I try to focus on the positive and soulful with this little blog project here... But, on my cruise through the blogosphere this morning I come across this photo with explanation of what it is, blah, blah, blah... Well now I am forced to make one thing perfectly clear to any of the brethren that frequent this location, or anyone interested in my journey... I, Shawn Stussy, have nothing to do with the corporation using my surname in any way, and have not since I sold my interest many years ago... After seeing something of this caliber touted as something cool, I am more than a little confused and a bit embarrased to tell you the truth... Dude, please tell me this is not what people out there are waiting for... SS

Whether you check the blog on the regular or have been putting in serious work to help us build, it is all noticed and graciously thanked.
Happy Holidays to you all!

W)TAPS and Supreme are back at it again with for the holidays with a collection that draws inspiration from the old school days of baseball.
This reversible jacket comes in both navy and red. Side 1 above, side 2 below (except both sides are the same color, I'm just showing you one of each).
This Winter, Supreme and WTAPS have teamed up to produce a collection that includes a reversible melton wool/cotton varsity jacket in two colorways, three graphic T-shirts and a melton wool pillow in two colors.
Available in-store on December 29th. Available in Japan on January 2nd.
*Jacket and pillow available US in-store only
*T-shirts available in-store & web store
That reversible varsity jacket is absolutely amazing. If it was anywhere close to fitting in my budget I would be all over it!
Here we have a look at the BE@RBRICK Series 19 figures, including the chase ones.
My favourites amongst them are the Spock Star Trek figure and the Leopard print one.
Available now at all BE@RBRICK stockists.

As if everything wasn't already cooler in Japan, NSW just keeps adding fuel to the fire. So to absolutely shit all over our weak "East vs West" aka DJ Clark Kent vs Eddie Cruz (UNDFTD) rivalry series, Nike is introducing the Ueno vs Harajuku rivalry series to Tokyo. This series starts with a set of Terminators...
(FYI: Ueno and Harajuku are 2 popular districts within Tokyo)
The Harajuku pair is nice and subtle, but the Ueno pair is absolutely perfect to me. All black shoe, nice mix of what looks like kevlar on the toe and a rip-stop material on the toe box, plus the laces and eyelet hardware, PLUS the awesomely colorful rear collar for a touch of hidden loud color.
Um, can you tell I want these? But unfortunately they are a Tier Zero release that I would be surprised to see hit stateside. Damn, why don't I live in Japan again?? Oh right, that whole "job" thing...
