Men's VIP List
Both Women's & Men's VIP List
Everyone has their favorite watering hole and three of ours are in NYC. Actually had my first “legal” beer at McSorley’s. Tailgate has a collection of great graphic t’s that feature the great drinking establishments’ logos from around the country; in the old days one would refer to their favorite bar as a Speakeasy. If you’re not so lucky to be able to visit in person, you can look like you did.
With Spring Break upon us and Memorial Day and summer round the corner we were stoked to see some of our favorite gear amongst Selectism’s “10 Wet Short”. Onia‘s Calder Short and Lightning Bolt‘s boardshort were mentioned. If those don’t suffice we also have Sundek and Olasul as well. Pair any of these trunks with a great graphic t, tank, your favorite shades and Havaianas and you’re ready to jet to the beach or poolside.
Havaianas is known for making the world’s best flip flop, straight from the beaches in Brazil and available worldwide. São Paulo, Brazil is the predominant city in the graffiti world with the largest number of works, and considered one of the top cities in the world to appreciate street art and Havaianas has found a way for you to sport some of this killer art. We are stoked about the union between Havaianas and urban art, and have these limited edition flip-flops with prints from 3 renowned graffiti artists: Highraff, Speto and Zezão. Havaianas are a must have for the summer months, whether paired with denim, your favorite boardshorts from Onia, Sundek or Olasul; or rocking shorts from Burkman Bros. Throw on your Ray-Bans or Persol shades and fill a Wm. J. Mills & Co. duffel with some tanks and Fred Perry polos and you’re ready for a rockin’ beach weekend.
With a strong graphic design influence, Highraff blends graffiti, illustration, cartoon language and psychedelic art, which results in organic forms with striking color combinations. His inspirations mainly come from natural forms such as the sun, moon, stars and plants.
Born in São Paulo, Speto is one of the artists responsible for the originality of Brazilian graffiti. He developed a unique style that carries hip hop elements and a strong influence of woodcut.
Zezão became famous for expressing his art in the sewer galleries in the city of São Paulo. It was a way of bringing color and life to forgotten places. During his career, he developed two types of art: the first remits to abstract calligraphy; the second employs abstract and colorful drawings.
There are some staples every guy’s wardrobe should not be without. One is the iconic polo shirt. Launched at Wimbledon in 1952, the Fred Perry polo shirt was an immediate success, known for its laurel logo and adopted as part of the uniform of the punks and mods and today’s hipsters worldwide. We like to stick to our laurels and note that some celebs like and Stephen Moyer and Zac Efron are fans too. Offered in solid or the timeless twin tipped polo in a never ending combination of colors, pair them with jeans, khakis or your favorite boardshort, havaianas and shades for afternoon cocktails by the pool.
J BRAND embodies modern classics with a masculine fit. Whether you’re looking to rock some killer cargos, a simple five pocket twill and distressed jean or a clean dark denim J BRAND‘s got you covered. And if you tend to shy away from a fancy pocket design J BRAND is perfect for you as the provide fashion with a minimum of the unnecessary. Don’t just take our word for it Brad Pitt, Gerard Butler, Zac Efron, Taylor Lautner, Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck and Channing Tatum count themselves among J BRAND‘s many fans. Their styles take you from the street, to the beach to your favorite watering hole and rock ‘em with your best kicks, havaianas or boots.
Persol comes from “per il sole” meaning “for the sun”, highlighting these iconic shades’ function of protection against the sun’s rays. For nearly 100 years Persol has been providing great style and function in eyewear. One of the brand’s early fans was Steve McQueen, known as an everlasting men’s style icon. We love the retro styling of the PO0649 and the collapsible quality of the PO0714 favored by McQueen. If that’s not enough check out many of Hollywood’s stars sporting them too; or you may say modern day icons wearing icons.
GQ’s obsessed and so are we. Need new gear for the beach? Lightning Bolt offers great swim trunks and sick graphic tees and tanks emblazoned with the bolt and we’ve got a great stash to choose from. Pair ‘em with your favorite jeans, havaianas, some Burkman Bros. bracelets and killer shades and you’re good to go!
Founder Donwan Harrell created PRPS with an eye toward form, function, and durability, believing in a “product with a purpose.” With roots in the American south and a decade of world travel under his belt, Harrell’s PRPS denim is a classic, nostalgic vision of American life with a hint of the worldly wayfarer. During his travels the Japanese stood out for the quality of their craftsmanship, so all PRPS denim is woven in small batches on vintage looms by a small community of artisans in Japan. Don’t just take our word for it David Beckham, Brad Pitt and a number of other stars are big fans too! Check ‘em out rockin’ the Barracuda jean.
