I just discovered the Japanese label Factotum. The website does not offer a lot of details about the brand, except that they have a few flagship stores in Japan. Feel free to check out the brand that seems like it has up-and-coming potential to be a popular fashion label. Unlike the traditional spring collections of most brands the collection consists of longer shorts.

Need Socks?

The monster sock is coming to an Urban Outfitters near you. The socks retail for 8$. The design is so cool that I don't know why anyone would pass on the opportunity to purchase these.

Self Edge X Iron Heart: Cycling Denim

Self Edge, San Francisco's denim know- it -alls, has teamed up with Iron Heart to make a one of a kind pair of jeans. The jeans are built to withstand the extensive wear and stretching that jeans undergo while cycling. The jeans are built with a 21 oz denim made to endure the beatings dished out from the rider. The jeans go on sale November 21st but for anyone interested in purchasing them online the online release is December 21st.

Specific details written out by the Self Edge Blog:

"-21 ounce Sanforized Selvedge Japanese Denim
-Dark Indigo Stitch Half Arcuate Pocket Design
-Reinforced crotch rivet
-Hidden rivets
-Crotch cross-stitch moved 1” forward to delay crotch blow-outs and for the comfort
of the rider
-Rear pockets placed .75” farther to the outside of the jeans to avoid sitting on
anything stored in the pockets
-Rear pockets sized to fit a mini U-Lock
-Higher rise in the back, lower rise in the front for maximum comfort and mobility
-Extra belt loops at the rear of the waistband to avoid torn loops from backpack
usage and to prevent the pulling down of the waistband if a belt is worn while riding
-Spring loaded clip metal key fob hanging from front belt loop
-Medium relaxed fit in the upper and thigh region, super slim fit below the knee"

*Please note hanging knit ties for storage is a bad idea because it stretches them out.

Band of Outsiders: Spring 2008

A very well-done fashion spread by Band of Outsiders for next spring. Scott Sternberg shows all wanna be "Prep" high school kids how to really dress preppy by reintroducing the true 70s flavor. The boating atmosphere was due to the collaboration which is ongoing between Sternberg and Sperry. The atmosphere creates an upper class theme and makes me think of what his trip to the Hamptons would look like.

Sneaker Freaker

Sneaker Freaker Magazine is out now. It's being release this Saturday at Bodega Boston. Each issue is $10 and jam-packed with tons of crap about the sneakers you love to wear. In it is a article with Claws, an article on a New Zealand native photographer on a mission to uncover the reasoning behind shoes on power lines while documenting it, & some interesting stuff on Air Walk which were vans on steroids because they didn't give blisters to skateboarders and were basically the first shoes designed by boarders.

Harry & His Troops

Have you ever wondered how many people go to the Harry Potter release? Well, neither have I; instead, on the way back home from dinner I saw these people and I will just say "no comment."

Gawker's Apology To The Jews- Hilarious

Gawker Apologizes To The Jews

So our earlier post about our wacky Jew-hating ways got the attention of the folks at Heeb, who were name-checked by Mark "I Like Kike" Caro in his admonitory blog post. The Heebs seem to have understood the humor, but a commenter at their site found us less amusing. angryjew.jpg

Well, obviously that won't do. We've drafted a sincere and heartfelt apology.

Dear Jew,

We are sincerely sorry for offending your delicate Jew sensibilities. Yes, it's true, there are a few Jews here in the office—we've crunched the numbers, and four out of five Gawker editors have at least some Jew blood in them (not on them!)—and we do think that gives us the right to make Jew jokes. But you know what? None of us are Irish, thank God, and we still knock the micks every now and again. We're kinda of the opinion that the idea of ethnicity and its accompanying stereotypes are inherently hilarious. So, sure, we may not know a lot about life in Israel—do you guys still eat the Palestinian kids after your tanks run them over, or did you stop that once Rabin came into office? Do we still send Israel billions of dollars a year?—but, guess what, we think the comical ways in which your Jew country kowtows to the craziest Jew elements of crazy Jewiness could not be funnier. Hope that's okay!


I recommend visiting on a regular basis because it's pretty much the most regaling blog ever. I can't say the stuff that gawker says because I pretty much have no readers; however, when I get the 500,000 views a day or something like that which gawker gets I will be full of their commentary don't worry.


I feel bad for this guy, yet I don't, because he is the one moron rooting for Michael Vick on his dog abuse case. Here is the full article associated with this guy:

"Eris Banks of Conyers, Ga., shows his support for Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick during a baseball game between the Atlanta Braves and Cincincinnati Reds in Atlanta, Wednesday, July 18, 2007. Vick was indicted by a federal grand jury on Tuesday on charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation so grisly the losers either died in the pit or sometimes were electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)" How can that guy support Vick on those charges? However, remember he could be innocent. I doubt it. Everyone doubted the Duke lacrosse players; however, it was clear that they were innocent but no one listened to them.

The Cobrasnakes New T-shirt

The Cobrasnake, notorious for his photography of hipsters & t-shirts, has released another edition of t-shirts this time with confetti writing. There are only 250 shirts and they sell out extremely quickly. Also, The Cobrasnake now has a photography competition for those who purchase the shirt & the person with the best photo automatically gets next months shirt free.Go check it out.

YM: It's Readers Still Stand Strong

"LIFE ON THE WEB: Jane magazine is closing with the August issue and Conde Nast Publications will shut down the Web site Aug. 20, but another company Web site for young women has endured far beyond its magazine's lifetime., the digital home of the teen magazine bought and shuttered by Conde Nast in 2004, is seldom remembered, except, perhaps, by its ardent online community, and by the individuals who post on and have battled it since last winter.

If the YM posters are, as they claim, teenage girls, their memory of the magazine may be foggy. Remaining YM subscribers were moved to the Teen Vogue database, the main impetus for Conde Nast's purchase. (WWD is also owned by Conde Nast). Although the properties' corporate connection is unknown or irrelevant to each community, magazine brand identity is peculiarly strong for posters. Teen Vogue's members, a YM poster explained, are "rich girls mostly who don't give a blank about anyone but themselves and their credit cards." One poster, describing herself as a "proud Teen Voguer" didn't exactly dispel the stereotypes by claiming, "the YMers don't have a heart, they are jealous of us because we have style, and they do not." Yet another taunted in May: "Which magazine is still printing?" "

I was clicking around on WWD and found the most hilarious article. Just when you think teenage girls can't get any lamer. I read this.

Blue in Green- A Men's Lifestyle Store

I came across Blue in Green, a jean utopia, which has every pair of Japanese jeans from raw sugarcanes to somet. While exploring around, I also stumbled across a compilation of newspaper articles & featured press articles about them from the New York Times to a magazine from Japan. The articles were all neatly compiled on their website. If you want to check it out go to You may also learn something about denim such as that Union sewing machines were used for old Levis.

Harry Potter's Summer: So Far

The top photo is from Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2007 Men's Collection, the 2nd photo is from the movie, & the 3rd is August's Details magazine cover. My favorite potter look is the first. The Details grooming of Daniel Radcliffe, Harry Potter himself, looks like he forgot to shave. If you actually open up the magazine the article is really only about a page and a half if that. It's not worth it. The photos of him styled are horrid too. Every picture is in a dark room, like an old rundown motel with dim-lit lights & smoky looking ,something you'd never want to see as a photo shoot theme. If you are trying to find the most stylish looks of Harry Potter, they can be found in the youtube movie. Who would have thought Lego has sylists?
