"Oh Im So Old School"

Ok these are not “HERMES BOAT SHOES” but when I saw the image of these new Kicks from the Converse Jack Purcell line, the first thing that came to me was that classic Jay Z lyric…

“Lampin in the Hamptons, the weekends man
The Stan Smith Adidas and the Campers
Or playin guts on the cruise, Hermes boat shoes
The Izod bucket on I’m so old school”
That Ni$$a Jigga

Is it me or are these joints kind of hot?? It is me or might Diddy be rocking these? Is it me or will Diddy BE rocking these this summer while in St. Tropez with his man-servant Mr. Bentley shielding him from the Mediterranean sun with a Louis V umbrella?

Yes that’s the Louis Vuitton LC ARC EN CIEL UMBRELLA

(Shout out to my mom for giving me the LV bug)

These Converse Jack Purcell are def taking on a nautical theme, Converse drops a new rendition of its classic Jack Purcell Ox. The kicks feature a mostly white base, complimented by navy flag detailing throughout the uppers with a multi-color flag motif on the clear outsoles.

Summer is coming!

as Jay says……. “Who is this Hot?”

Hit me on the Twit or on the Book.

Shawn Stussy – S.Double

Posted in Accessory, Clothing, Design, Fashion, Hip-Hop, History, New York City, Skateboarding with tags , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2010 by mattyfresh697400

Shawn Stussy had a profound effect on my adolescence.  Stussy did not have th greatest distribution in the late 1980’s and early 90’s. And  living on the east coast in NYC did not making finding Stussy any easier. For me this was the golden age of skateboarding and  really the birth of the street/surf/skate wear industry.

On the Upper West Side there was jean store called Pandemonium that would occasionally have some cool Stussy Tees. Eventually Union opened in SOHO and all my Stussy dreams came true. I would hop on the Lance Mountain Powell mini and shoot down to the shop in hopes of finding that Stussy Chanel Logo Tee or the infamous “Hood” tee (Compton, The Bronx, etc) The beauty of the Stussy brand was that because it was hard to find, if you had the gear it seemed like you were up on something that all skater kids jocked but not all could find.

Eventually in I believe 1991 the first Stussy store opened in SOHO and I had to have it all, I can recall fondly walking into that shop (which was located across the street from where the Apple Store SoHo location is currently housed, at the time the Apple Store was a post office if memory serves me.) Anyway I remember walking into the Stussy store on the day it opened and they were playing DAS EFX on the sound system. The Shit was just perfect.

And who can forget the incredible Stussy print ads from Thrasher Magazine and Transworld. Classic Material. (But that is for a whole other post)

S. Double New York Tee

Fast forward to present day and the Stussy company is no longer owned by founder and lead designer Shawn Stussy, but the flyness still remains. And Shawn Stussy has not stopped delivering the goods either. His line called S. Double (S.hawn S.tussy) is pretty fresh. I don’t have any pieces myself, but I will be on the look out. You should too!

HOMAGE

Seems like the homies at NO MAS are certainly not the only team playing around with iconic sports imagery in the gear game.  HOMAGE has some cool pieces, certainly worth checking out. Being a lover of all things Los Angeles Lakers (Thank you Fletch!) I love the showtime piece featured below.. oh and the Moses Malone Tee is a must have.

PAY HOMAGE.

Homage turns back the clock with shout outs to eclectic moments and personalities in sports, music, politics and popular culture. From Dr. J to Kris Kross, our tees tell stories of triumph, individualism and hustle, preserving the old school and creating new legacies. http://www.homageclothing.com

What happens when three things you freakin LOVE (Like sneakers, hip-hop and Star Wars) come together….you go shopping!!

The Star Wars and adidas Originals campaign has been a prominent fixture over the last few weeks representing two strong brands in the respective world of cinematography and sports. To help cap off a successful footwear-centric capsule, we’ve seen a number of city tours that have involved the iconic Star Wars antagonist, Darth Vader and an army of Storm Troopers. Just yesterday, the Dark Lord of the Sith took over the streets of New York alongside none other than Snoop Dogg.
