I like these from HUF because of their unique twist on a hybrid mix of an outdoor boot and a running sneaker. It's unique and looks to serve its purpose in situations where you want to wear boots but it may not call for heavy duty style boots in a casual situation.
Here we go with another pop culture icon fitted cap. You can't go wrong with these, especially if done correctly and it doesn't hurt that it's a familiar brand of the iconic 80's Transformers. I dig it
You cant tell its varsity jacket season. This raglan style varsity jacket is pretty cool. It's sleek, it's unique, it works. It has a very "high class prep" feel to it.
"Fred Perry and Raf Simons come together to produce this stylish reinterpretation of the classic varsity jacket taken from their collaborative Fall/Winter 2013 collection. The jacket features a season-appropriate Melton wool shell in burgundy with contrasting white leather sleeves. The front includes two jet pockets, a snap button closure and a letter ‘F’ applique on the chest while the back carries Fred Perry’s iconic laurel leaf. The interior has one inner pocket and is lined with cotton. Two-tone stripes finish off the jacket at the hem, cuffs and collar."
I could go into details about the Lakers defeat over the Clippers but I'm just happy that the Lakeshow came out and proved the critics wrong and showed the world that we can compete in the Western Conference.

Here's another TRDA Brand *Exclusive Sneek Peek* at the "OG Zebra Print" Logo Hat. Zebra print is one of the latest trends and I've decided to incorporate it into the TRDA Brand "OG" Logo
Now this hat is a fresh and new twist on the Arizona Diamondback franchise logo. It's creative, it's fresh. I especially dig the Arizona Diamondbacks typography script going across the lower half of the hat.

This picture makes me want to write a story called "The Hidden Railroad". This picture intrigues me. It drives the explorer in me to want to see more. I give credit to the Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider franchises for that.
Let the trend continue!!!! Adidas has unveiled their contribution to the smart watch trend. Now this watch may not have cell phone capabilities but it has its fair share of advance technology that cater to an audience that may be looking for a smart that caters primarily to work out needs and standards.
Here's what Freshness Magazine.com had to say the new Adidas smart watch.....
"The trefoil brand has taken the wraps off the adidas miCoach SMART RUN, a new wrist-worn fitness device and music player featuring the brand’s miCoach interactive training service, as well as GPS mapping, heart rate monitoring and more. The various features are housed in a stainless steel case packing a 1.45-inch full-color touch screen with 184-by-184-pixel resolution, along with a magnesium backplate and soft-touch silicon strap. Underneath the hood, the watch runs Android 4.1.1 and a built-in accelerometer that counts the runner’s steps to provide stride rate, GPS to monitor distance, running routes and track speed, and an MP3 player with Bluetooth wireless audio for music and audible coaching guidance. Available in November on adidas.com, the miCoach SMART RUN will retail for $399." via Freshnessmagazine.com
Judging by picture I've seen, Supra is rounding out the year with an impressive bag collection for the Fall/Winter 2013 season. Supra made a great decision with going going with a gunmetal/black color way for this collection. It's sleek, professional, and fits the season well.
Anyone who knows me, knows I'm a fan of accessories especially bags and in particular backpacks. I give Supra two thumbs for this collection and hopefully we'll get an in depth review on each of these bags so we can all get a closer at them.

So here we have it, the second smart watch to be released in the U.S. I'm not going to get into details but I will say that Samsung has already grabbed my attention with their aggressive ad campaigns in regards to the fictional smart watches of pop culture.
The smart watch wars are set to explode onto the scene soon creating a new buzz in technology which I affectionately call the "Smart watch era".
I'll wait till to see what other brands come out with and then I'll make a decision about which smart watch I'll pick up.

I needed a set of headphones that I could us for listening to music as well video editing. As you can tell by now, I have particular taste in what I'm looking for.
There's a ton of headphones out there but I was looking for a very particular set of headphones that could rival the features and quality of Beats by Dre headphones. Now the average somebody reading this would most likely say, "why not just buy a pair of Beats by Dre headphones? Trust me, I have my reasons.
Anyways, I was searching the internet just hoping to find something but the search wasn't going all that well until I saw the Scosche RH1056md headphones. These headphones were everything I was looking for in style, build, and quality. So there you have it, my latest weapon of choice.
Japanese skateboard sculpture artist, HAROSHI, needs no introduction, as his works have become a familiar sight on the internet. From designing trophies for the Battle of the Berrics to holding his own in various exhibitions in US, his distinct artworks never cease to amaze the viewers. We reported on his latest joint venture project with Japanese skateboard company, UNIFUL, last month, and some of the boards are available for purchasing online through Kinetics in Tokyo. There are only 150 pieces made, and each deck is hand signed and numbered by HAROSHI. If you missed his artworks in the past, this could be your chance to pick up his work before these are sold out as well.

Skateboarding is art..........
Beautiful LOGO is the title of a new book by Mike Doyle, one that perfectly distills what the reader finds in between the covers of the 280-page volume. Doyle himself is a graphic designer who’s an accomplished builder in his own right, and his piece “Odan” graces the cover. Considering his keen eye, it’s no wonder that Doyle was able to curate such a stunning compendium of LEGO artwork, showcasing builds ranging from lifelike replicas of everyday objects to imaginative renderings of spacecrafts, mansions, and mythical creatures. Check out an extensive preview below, and purchase Beautiful LEGO now through Amazon and other fine book sellers. via Freshnessmag.com
Stussy and iconic New York-based leather crafter Schott have joined forces once again, this time for a sage green aviator jacket due out this fall. Building upon the collaborative 100-year anniversary collectionthat dropped earlier this year, the new jacket – based on the military’s timeless MA-1 – comes complete with a sage green nylon exterior, bright orange interior and faux squadron patches throughout. The Stussy x Schott Aviator Jacket for Fall/Winter 2013 is set to hit Stussy’s Japanese chapters this Saturday, October 12 for ¥44,940 JPY (approximately $462 USD). via Hypebeast.com
I like this jacket a lot. It has an old school bomber jacket feel to it. Back in the day our parents used to buy us the bomber jackets and we would do our best to fill it with patches to look like aviator pilots.
You can't go wrong with a grey and deep blue color way. I might have to grab this one or be inspired to create one of my own.

This is just tough!!!! This poster represents a number of things I'm a fan of.
One, the Back to the Future movie franchise. My brother and I used to sit there on a random Saturday afternoon and watch all three Back to the Future movies straight through.
Two, Marty McFly's style. I remember being in the fourth grade and watching Back to the Future 2 and after watching it the next day at school I rolled up my jacket sleeves to look like it had no sleeves so I could look like Marty McFly.
Last but not least, the Nike Air Mag sneakers. How can you not want a pair of those Nike "sneaks" from the future. If I could get my hands on a pair, I would get them but it's a stretch. I love high top sneakers and I think the Nike Air Mag's from Back to the Future 2 are the ultimate high tops.
Yes, this is real lol. I've said it on so many occasions but jus when you think they've run out of ideas, they come up with this. Wow. Do you know how much trouble I would have got into as a kid if this was around in my day????

As we all should recognize, October is breast cancer awareness month. We all know someone who has either passed away from their fight with breast cancer or has survived their ordeal.
This month we take the opportunity to show our support and bring awareness to breast cancer prevention.
