One blog to add to your Google Reader is A Continuous Lean. Founded by Michael Williams in 2007, it serves as a place for those who appreciate fine quality and style. Williams was recently interviewed by GQ for his top ten essentials. What made the list? Red Wing boots, obviously. (more…)
There’s a moment in every guy’s life when it’s time to throw out that pair of sneakers you’ve been rockin’ since high school. Instagram founder, Kevin Systrom, got his big boy shoes after making a New Year’s resolution.
His shoe of choice? Red Wing boots that are totally awesome. The copper-toned leather has an already distressed and worn-in look to it. These boots are durable, stylish and a necessity for any guy’s wardrobe. Check out all of our Red Wing Shoes here.
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.
