Outfit Architecture…

Sunday, December 15th, 2013


Outfit Architecture is the next wave for all advanced Lifestylers. Those of us who have been doing this thing for years have enough pieces in our archives to assemble outfits for weeks.

The winter supply line soldier looks something like this below.


I was so thirsty to post this ‘Fit I didn’t wait for the knit watch cap. I’d like to ask y’all what color should I make the cap? Orange rust or should I pick up the plum colors?

This trekking parka is one of the gems from the 2012 Modern Explorer series.


Bloomigdale’s is once again the top shop on my list for catching the end of season sales.

Everyone in fashion has been all about these pants with the jersey cuffed ankles. Blue label made these pants during the Hi-Tech era and I just unearthed them from my archives. I could see RL doing these again from the Denim and Supply brand.




These pants are designed specifically for the winter since they are lined throughout.

If you are a frequent visitor to this page you remember we put this shawl knit on the wishlist a few months ago. Bloomingdale’s offered the sweater for $100 which was basically 75% the MSRP and squarely in the comeup zone.


The best part of this acquisition is the young lady working the floor who knew I was looking for this piece held onto one in the backroom hoping I’d make a return trip to the store even tho’ I was there earlier in the week.

I’m about to turn shit up for the 6″ Field Boot as I did for the Iditarod Superboots and the World Hikers. This is a classic Timberland style that must not be slept on. Forget what the most popular rappers are wearing because they ain’t up on this.


I also brought out some NWT Rugby brand socks just for the holidays

SneakerCON DC Recap…

Friday, September 27th, 2013


SneakerCON is the premiere Buy-Sell-Trade sneaker convention. It brings out everybody in the culture and beyond. Think of it as a traveling sneakerhead circus. Resellers, vendors, customizers and kids getting their hustle on.

Thousands of ‘heads convene for the love of kicks.

And this wasn’t even a pic of the entire venue…

Sneakermoms are the shit. Without them we couldn’t be sneaker fiends.



I fux with customizers too. A few years ago you could get more dap wearing fakes. I’m glad the game is giving them their shine right now.

Grandpa swag surfin’.

Props to pops.

Salutes to all the hypebeasts in the building. Y’all make the event dope.







Dude is definitely a ‘sneakerhead’

D.C. kept is all the way funky with the footwear too.


You know its real when you see cats rocking Timbs all year ’round

My man Tarik made a video from the event for the SneakerNews folks. Peep that below…

Tupac Back?

Thursday, September 19th, 2013


Tupac might be the biggest mainstream reference people have today when considering the iconic and legendary Timberland Iditarod class Superboot. His role in the seminal Hip-Hop movie ‘Juice’ cemented in people’s minds what an NYC street thug wore as he went about his business.

I didn’t buy my first pair, or any pair for that matter, of Iditarod Superboots to do my thugging. These boots were purchased because Timberland represented invincibility for your feet. That was always the ‘hood appeal to Timberland products. The idea that a boot could withstand temperatures as deep as 40 degrees below made you feel like Superman.

The 40 Below is dropping again this November. Here is your chance to cop a piece of Hip-Hop history. Here is where yon get yours.
