Rewind: SWEAR Street Mix

SWEAR Street Mix 07 e

SHOE PORN.  More to come  I think I literally pulled every picture of SWEARS off the internet.  EVERY PICTURE.  The Street Mixes personally aren’t my favourite style of SWEARS but they were immensely popular.  I think the Camo SMs are the best of the bunch.

If I had massive amounts of disposable income, all my debts paid, and everything else i’ve ever wanted bought and paid for, I might buy these just for the novelty.  Still doesn’t quite cut the mustard, but nice try Karl.

Ha!  I was so busy finding shit for new posts i totally forgot to put this up.  I have maybe 15+ posts upcoming on different models of SWEARS.  I still haven’t written a profile on them, because I pretty much have no info on the company.  Maybe I’ll get around to it tomorrow with my day off.  In the meantime, here’s a few pics of SWEAR Colombos.  Haven’t seen many around and Niki R sold […]

intro to techno snobbery

Welcome to my third attempt at blogging!  Obviously the first two went absolutely nowhere.  But really, i’m shocked and appalled I didn’t think of this concept earlier.  Those that have known me for a while, know that I fucking love raver clothes.  Let’s just say I was stylistically challenged before I was introduced to the joys of Geek Boutique and FDCO.  With the crash of the late 90s rave wave, most clothing companies producing garments […]
