Highsnobiety / Selectism | "Thanks For 2009" Drink Coasters

Letterpress Coasters from Quarter Productions on Vimeo.

David Fischer and Jeff Carvalho of Highsnobiety and Selectism posted this video giving a glimpse at the process behind their industry gifts sent out this holiday season. I was pretty stoked to see the use of an early printing press especially when it seems that everything is digital these days. The streets seemed to be lined with half thought out decaying posters on the worst card stocks. Even reflecting on the hundreds of mixtapes people tried to sell me this year and the hilarious artwork on them just makes me greater appreciate I small project like this. So all you emcees and rappers in Time Square, if you letterpress your cover art I'll buy.

"The coasters were run off on Michael’s early 1966 Vandercook SP20 Press using coaster stock. Each sheet housed four coasters which were then cut on a vintage Challenge Advance Guillotine Cutter and corners were rounded using a new old stock 60’s Lassco Corner Cutter. The finished coasters were then hand banded and glue to form. Not surprisingly, we ran out of the initial run but plan on pressing more in the New Year. Many thanks to Michael for an amazing job."

What I appreciate even more is the numerous creative individuals that made this post even possible. You have Michael Dacey at Repeat Press in Somerville, MA who produced the custom double sided coasters. You have Steve Schinnerer/Iloveqp who shot, edited and produced the promo clip and if you really want to go into detail the re-branded logo was designed by Benny Gold. And let's not forget the music.

Acapulco Gold adds four new custom printed flannel button downs to their collection to wrap up the holiday season. The Laborers Button Downs and Workers Flannel come in two colors respectively.

Supra Footwear | Spring 2010 Preview

A recent visit to the Supra 2010 Press Room by Japan's Shoe Master unearthed a sneak preview of what to expect from Supra this coming Spring. Though many have speculated that Supra will slowly digress in the coming year one will argue after seeing some of the up coming kicks. Among the signature collection and at the centre of it all is The Skytop (purple) and Skytop II which appears to be complimented by a rose/gold metallic TK Society. For its non-signature line looks like we will see some more suede, distressed leathers balanced with an array of brights. It also appears that Supra, in an uncharacteristic move, will tone down some of their popular silhouettes with a few neutral monotone color-ways.

Tuesday Chill Track | "Comme des enfants" Coeur de Pirate

The Tuesday Chill track feature has ranged from
Johnny Cash to Corey Heart and just about everything in between. Everything except a good solid Francophone talent.

I came across French-Canadian artist Coeur de Pirate last week and had it consist rotation throughout. The Quebec based artist has kind of flown under the radar for the last couple years unless you have been listening to CBC Radio 3 which I am not sure too many people have even heard of. In March the 20 year old singer-songwriter started an English side project entitled Pearls. So maybe we will hear a bit more about BĂ©atrice Martin in the very near future. Until then creep her myspace and twitter.

Monday Morning Playlist: Eugene Kan

It has been a few weeks without a Monday Morning Playlist and for that I apologize. Although I have had one sitting in my inbox for a few months now. With the launch of last week it seemed only fitting. This will probably be the last instalment of the Monday Morning Playlist before the new year but I assure you I have a few others in the works that will appear in the early New Year with some truly inspiring and creative individuals.

So last week Eugene launched a little side project that has been in the works for sometime - The site is a more personal outlet for Eugene to discuss an array of subjects and issues through his unique writing style and photographic outlook. The site is sure to conjure up and inspire a higher level of dialog that often gets overlooked in the blogosphere.

"It's amazing how your whole perspective can change so quickly. Well I knew launching my own platform would provide a creative outlet unlike most of the stuff I had done in the past, especially with Hypebeast. Everything is 100% me and having said that, you can't imagine what it's going to be like until it's really in your hands. The support has been good thus far and I appreciate all the words from everybody. Going forward, I know that I probably might be totally different and perhaps unappealing to those that know me for a role with Hypebeast. Or maybe this is what they're looking for is something beyond the superficial world of fashion and streetwear? Hopefully it's the latter but as it stands, I think I'll be a little selfish for now and just create stuff that I really appreciate and respect. This all comes irrespective of creating angles in which have to keep in mind the thoughts of your viewers. I'm interested in numbers and metrics, but only for goal purposes and the fact that I didn't start this shit to make money (and lets hope I can make it BIG some other way haha) keeps my collar loose and myself very interested in this project. I think that's about it... and once again, I really do appreciate every opportunity people like you and others have given me." - Eugene Kan

Eugene not only provided us with a sampling but almost two hours of some of his favourites. So sit back, toss on your Nike 6.0 Snuggie, grab a plate of dim sum and enjoy Eugene's Monday Morning picks.

1. Jay-Z – Heart of the City
2. Gang Starr - The Militia feat. Big Shug and Freddie the Foxx
3. Kanye West - Spaceship feat. GLC & Consequence

Congrats on the site and thanks for the time.

Benny Gold | Office Space

Congratulations go out to Benny Gold. The one man design team, skateboarder and brand owner recently signed a lease to relocate his design office and warehouse beginning January 1st. What began as guerrilla sticker hobby has evolved into a highly sought after freelance design business and full fledge clothing company. The brand has been tucked inside his residence for the past 7+ years and upon a brief visit back in November it was clear to see that Benny had out grown his single office space.

I have a great deal of respect for the brand and Benny's integrity. Having the opportunity to discuss design and the brands growth back in November of last year, Benny mentioned his desire to expand with his heart set on one day having an external office and showroom/small retail space. What may be even more impressive is this dream has now come to fruition and has done so all on his own with no outside investment.

By the looks of it the new space is a 2 story free standing building in the Mission District of San Francisco. And if memory serves me correctly I think the space is on 21st Street not to far from Self Edge San Francisco. Not sure as to whether there are immediate plans for a retail space but we would imagine it isn't to far off in the distance.

Best of luck.

Review | Oakley Eric Koston Frogskins and Jawbone

Oakley continues to set the standards when it comes to innovative and creative design. Blending science and art they continue to redefine fashion forward and performance eyewear.

"Decades of Oakley innovation have led to a full array of market-leading products including performance apparel and accessories, prescription eyewear, footwear, watches and electronics. The company continues to build on its heritage of authenticity by reinventing products from scratch to achieve superior quality and genuine innovation that delivers the unexpected. Awarded more than 575 patents and 1100 trademarks, Oakley today is a global icon offering products to consumers in more than 100 countries."

The brand was started in 1975 with a $300 investment by James Jannard. Jannard originally focused his attention towards the Motocross and BMX market producing what he called the 'The Oakley Grip'. In the 70's motorcycle handgrips were just basic pieces of rounded rubber. James developed a unique tread and design that fit securely in the riders grasp out of a material called Unobtainium. Unobtainium was a material that would get tacky when it became wet giving riders superior control and obvious grip over their fellow competitors. Unobtainium is still used in the sunglasses in many nose piece and earsocks.

The first eyewear that James designed were a pair of goggles called the O-Frame. The O-Frame, which featured the iconic "O" logo on the side strap, was the first big step in creating brand recognition. The frame was extremely popular because of its low profile and optimized fit which allowed for better peripheral and downward vision. From there the Oakley empire began to grow and flourish with the first pair of sunglasses coming in 1984 in the form of the Eyeshade. James and Oakley continued to reinvented sunglasses giving attention to every detail whether in the form of lightweight design (Sub Zeros which came in at 0.69 oz) or inventing the Oakley Thump, the first pair of sunglasses with a built in MP3.


A few weeks ago I received a pair of Koston Frogskins as well as a pair of Jawbones. These two frames optimized what the Oakley brand has come to signify. On one side of the spectrum you have a classic in the form of the Frogskins, a mix of tradition and style. Whereas on the other hand you have the Jawbones, a glowing example of innovation and performance.

The Frogskins have secured their spot within pop culture. Coming to the market in the 1980's during a period where Ronald Reagan occupied the White House, people were rushing to theatres to see Arnold as "The Terminator" and Run D.M.C. was certified gold. The frames had been on hiatus for over a decade before they were reintroduced as the canvas for new limited edition pieces. The limited runs have ranged from an all chrome and gold frame courtesy of Supreme to a Purple on Purple combination thanks impart to Paul Rodriguez and his Encino-based retail spot Primitive. The most recent example of the retro classic is the exclusive Eric Koston rendition. The Girl Skate Pro and newly crowned member of Nike SB worked along side Oakley to come up with a nice twist to the iconic frame. The frame is done up in a sleek woodgrain print with a subtle set of iridium lens.

The Frogskin, as expected, fit like a gem while simultaneously going above and beyond to ensure that they not only served as a great addition to any outfit but also as a functioning sunglass. For me personally sunglasses are often used while driving so I decided to take them for a test drive to the cabin. At the end of the two hour drive I had not been faced with an issues. The frames alleviated my eyes from all glare with no stress being put on my vision.

The Jawbones are a recent addition to the Oakley line up. The frame was constructed with the World Class Athlete in mind. So much so that Oakley solicited the help of Lance Armstrong, George Hicapie, Thor Hushovd and Brian Lopes for the development and testing.

The Jawbone utilizes SwitchLock
® technology which alters the frames mechanics while maintaining the integrity of the frame. With SwitchLock the lower portion of the frame surrounding the lens opens allowing an athlete to make a quick lens change to adapt to any conditions. The frame also features a unique suspension system so-to-speak which holds the lenses in place so stresses on the frame do not affect the optics. The design allows for an unmatched clarity and rider protection.

Prior to trying on I questioned the frames comfort. Considering the nose piece was designed to pivot I had concerns but when I put them on the really fit quite well and were very comfortable. The sunglasses not only feature High Definition Optics® (HDO) lenses which makes for unbeatable clarity but Oakley's Hydrophobic® permanenet lens coating that prevents water from leaving streaks and sheens whether in the form of rain or sweat.

You''ll have to hurry if you still want to get your hands on the Koston Frogskins. Not only were they produced in very limited numbers but they are bound to sell out extremely fast which seems to be a common theme with these frames. They retail for $130. If you can't get your hands on those you may be able to grab the recently released Anti-Freeze colured Frogskin frame with Black Iridium lenses which are in stock and retail for $110 USD (
Here). The Jawbones on the other hand come in an array of colours and are fully customizable. They start off around $195 for the black on black coulorway with a fully customizable pair running between $220 and $320.

Thanks Rhett and Oakley for the chance to review the sunglasses.

The Hook Up | Process 'Bombera Street Scarf'

Crawled out of bed this morning to find a little gift tucked in the mail box courtesy of Larry Luk and the find folks at Process Clothing in East Point, Georgia. It's inspiring to see that they have been able to carve out a niche market that transcends the Atlanta based culture in which a lot of inspiration is drawn from. I am equally impressed at the mark they are making on the clothing industry considering they are a Creative and Design agency at heart.

When their Fall/Winter 'Love & War' collection came out in early November it really caught my eye. Being a graphic design graduate I was immediately drawn to the Herb Lubalin inspired text. I find myself being drawn to tonal patterns, strong typography and effective use of colour, likely the reason I was mesmerized by this scarf. The Bombera Street Scarf is 100% silk and measures 43" x 43". The scarf is a great investment or gift at $35. If you are in the Atlanta area you can head over to Standard ATL and get your hands on one.

There are some great deals to be had over at the We Are The Process online store. Thanks for the gift.

Predictions for Hawks/Bulls game at home on Wednesday...Hawks by 7 winning 99 - 92.

Diamond Supply Co | New York Pop Up At Prohibit

Nick and company have been fairly busy over the last few months renovating and preparing their new retail spot in Los Angeles. This past weekend they opened up their new location on North Fairfax, now calling the former Alife space home. Aside from relocation, Nick also announced a pop up shop for the holidays in New York.

Diamond Supply Co will be setting up temporary shop beginning December 16th at Japanese denim shop Prohibit NYC. No word on the duration of the New York stay but Diamond Supply will appear on shelves at the 152 Allen St location in just over a weeks time.

The Lower East side is quickly becoming a shopping destination. This block now houses not only Prohibit NYC and
Teddy Boy but also backs on to Orchard where you can find Self Edge New York, Shut Skateboards and Reed Space. and just up the block from those spots you have First Among Equals. Anyways you can definitely kill a few hours on the block. And if you are hungry pop into Georgia East Side BBQ.

NBA | Earl Boykins Inks Deal With Wizards

Sorry but was anyone going to inform me that my favourite NBA player was back in the league?

The Washington Wizards signed free-agent guard Earl Boykins on November 11 and the move is already paying dividends. Against his former team Wednesday night Boykins hit a pair of free throws with one second left in the fourth to beat his ex-Milwaukee Buck team by two, 104-102 at the Verizon Center. The Wiz are now 5-3 in their last 8 with Boykins in the line up, improving on their 2-7 start without the 5'5" guard. Over the course of 10 NBA seasons Boykins has averaged 9.4 points and 3.4 assists per game. I am sitting at my computer chatting "M-V-P".

Review | Mosley Tribe Dunn Sunglasses

Over the course of the next few weeks we will be reviewing a handful of sunglasses covering the spectrum from great price point entry level sunglasses to higher end options exploring all budgets. Among those being reviewed include the 9five Cult Classic Glens, EC Headwear Wayfarers, Oakley Jawone and Eric Koston Frogskins, and Mosley Tribe Dunns.

The first sunglass up for review is the Mosley Tribes Dunn. Mosley Tribes is a global lifestyle brand created in 2005 by Larry Leight, the Founder and Creative Director of LA based luxury eyewear brand Oliver Peoples. In 2006 Olivers People was purchased by Oakley which in turn was then purchased by Luxottica. Luxottica is the world's largest eyewear company whose in house and liscened brands include Oakley, Prada, Lens Crafters, Burberry, DKNY, Ray Ban, Tiffany & Co. and Arnette.

"Mosley is an expression of euphoric feeling and Tribes describe groups of individuals unified by a shared desire for performance without sacrificing style. Mosley Tribes designs are modern interpretations of timeless classics that combine fashion and function. The sleek, Mod-Equipped designs use titanium metals and injected plastic for a lightweight feel, ideal for active individuals. All Mosley Tribes frames feature VFX lenses (Visual Effects), the ultimate in lens technology and the most environmentally functional lenses available to fit specific customer needs based on light conditions and activities. Already recognized for its unique versions of double-bridge aviator styles, the core concepts of the brand include classic style, sport culture and street luxury." (Olivers People)

Since the brands inception in 2005 Mosley Tribes have carved out a niche celebrity market. The sunglass brand has become a popular choice for the Hollywood elite including Lance Armstrong, Jay-Z, Gwyneth Paltrow and John Mayer. With that in mind I thought it would be interesting to see what all the buzz was about.

For the review Mosley sent over two colorways of their unisex Dunn frame. The frame is comparable to Ray Ban Outdoorsman II and the Ray Ban Large Metal II which both come in around the $129 mark. The Dunn on the other hand retails at a slightly higher price point of $180 but still comes in lower than a pair of Maui Jim's or Paul Smith frame.

Now it has been a while since I have owned a pair of aviator styled shades but I did at one point own a pair of vintage Ray Bans that fit like they were tailored for my face. The fit was the first thing I noticed when trying on the Mosley Tribe Dunn's. The nose piece sat a little high on my bridge and as a result the fit was sacrificed and as a result a great deal of light was exposed to my eyes becoming no longer a practical accessory but more of a fashion only piece. Now I do like sunglasses that are visually appealing and maybe at times a little loud but I also expect them to serve their purpose. It is quite possible that the nose piece could be bent to accommodate a higher bridge. But I would hope that by forking out almost $200 I would be completely satisfied with the fit.

However there are two positions on this. On the flip spectrum I would imagine that (though a unisex frame) a majority of the Dunn consumer would be females who tend to have much smaller features than myself. As a result I would suspect that these frames are highly sought after in the female eyewear market.

Mosley Tribe took a very unique and modern approach to these retro-spec aviators that I would imagine serve their very function quite well on a smaller proportioned face. And if that is infact their target market, which I imagine it is, then these are a great entry level sunglass to compete with the Dolce and Gabbana's and the Prada's on the market. Overall I would give these a very high rating for you ladies out their on the hunt for some new frames and of course you guys with small-ass noses.

Next week we take a look at the Oakley Koston Frogskins and the Oakley Jawbone.

SquareUp | Credit Card Payment System

Square or SquareUp is a new secure mobile payment application for iPhone. All you require to take credit card payment is a 3.5mm audio input socket and some sort of internet connection. By connecting a small card reader plug into the audio input anyone can accept immediate and secure credit or debit card payment. Once the card is swiped the customer signs the screen of the iPhone with their finger and enters an email address for the receipt to be sent to completing the almost effortless transaction.

The application has undergone vigorous testing at Self Edge in New York and Sightglass Coffee Co. and Flower Cart in San Francisco allowing the Square team to work out the kinks to make it market ready.

Square is the brainchild of Jim McKelvey who had the idea back in February of this year after he wasn't able to sell a piece of his glass are because he was unable to accept credit card as payment. The payment system will be releasing in early 2010.

Supra | Skytop II "Goldie"

The Supra Skytop has gained some serious momentum over the last couple weeks with the help of The Supra Skytop II World Tour with Chad Muska. The Supra Skytop II Tour wraps up next week at Wish in Atlanta capping the 10 stop tour. Each of the ten stops received 36 pairs of the Gradient colorway with a total of 600 of the initial colorway being released through the 10 accounts at Factory 413 online store.

The second colorway surfaced last week for a Black Friday drop at Factory 413. The second coming featured a metallic gold upper with patent black accents and vulcanized rubber outsole. The shoe also brags an extra heel protection molded into comfortable high memory polyurethane insole. The shoe has been restocked over at Factory 413 and if you hurry you may be able to get your hands on the super limited run setting you back $150 USD.

Movember | "Beat For The Street" Alexander Spit

I must admit I was not familiar with the adaptation of November until fellow intern Shimon took it upon himself to show up to work the first week of November with a scarce arrangement of upper lip hair. Questioning him on his motives and refusal to shave for the month of November he told us about the Mo-vember campaign. The idea behind growing the mustache is simple yet effective. Start the month clean shaven and over the course of the next 30 days use the facial experiment to garner support from friends and family in the form of financial donations directed toward Prostate Cancer. The participant essentially becomes a walking billboard for the cause prompting an ongoing conversation of Prostate Cancer replacing the pink ribbon with an assortment of a world of Tom Selleck look a likes.

"The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia. The guys behind it joked about 80s fashion and decided it was time to bring the moustache back. In order to justify their Mos (Australian slang for moustache), they used their new looks to raise money for prostate cancer research… never dreaming that facial hair would ultimately lead to a global movement that would get men talking about a taboo subject – their health."

The date the event has raised over $47 million globally making it, to my knowledge, the world's largest charity event for men. Having a close familiar member pass of this form of cancer I have the utmost respect for those who are doing their part to raise awareness and funds to further research and the hunt for the cure. Shout out to all Men of Movember.

Check out Director Matt Hobbs work and the music of Alexander Spit.

The Hangover | Movie Of The Year?

I am dangerously close to having to count the number of times I have seen The Hangover in theatres on two hands now. For those in the know here are a few tid-bits you might find appetizing and if you have no clue about what I am talking about you should probably kick yourself in the face and than find a cheap theatre to see this on the big screen while you still can.

The Nevada scenes in the Hangover were filmed over the course of 15 days. During those 15 days Ed Helms (Stu Price) lost 8 pounds. Helms's tooth that goes missing was actually a dental implant that he received as a teenager that was removed for filming. Zach Galifianakis's (Alan Garner) explict shots in the final photo slide is actually a prosthesis. The dude in the elevator "making out" with the chick is producer Todd Phillips. It was actor Ken Jeong (Leslie Chow) who decided his character should jump out of the trunk of the Benz naked. One of the Mercedes being used for the film was actually stolen from the lot but recovered when production, while filming one of the driving scenes, was being held up by police who had coincidentally pulled over the Mercedes. The baby in the movie consisted of three sets of twins. Kanye paid actor Zach Galifianakis's to make an alternative video for his song "Can't Tell Me Nothing". Linday Lohan was offered the part of Jade (Heather Graham) but refused saying the movie would bomb. The sequel was in the works before the release of the film and will hit theatres October 2010 for Memorial Weekend.

The Hangover comes to DVD December 15 just in time to fill everyones stockings.

And the award for Best On Screen Hair goes to Bradley Cooper. If you know his secret email me.
