Patience my little grasshoppas, these posts take a while. After taking a pole of my jungle buddies, I’ve come up with a list of characteristic clothing items worn by old school junglists. While techno snobs look serious, junglists look tuff. As always post a comment with any additional suggestions.  Always looking for more/better pics.  Thanks to Toronto Jungle for keeping their shit online and in a relatively accessible format. 1. Cargo pants/capris/skirts (eg. UFOs) 2. Crack […]

SWEAR Criminals ??

SWEARs quintessential skateboard shoe.  If I have the model number, it’s in the image’s file name.  I’m not 100% sure the horn ones are considered Criminals (i’m going off of the shoe base).

Radical Self Reliance: Scarf refashion from Masustak Eguzkitan

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Eventually i’ll get around to posting some of my own DIYs, but for now I’m relying on the generosity of others. If you haven’t figured out already, i’m obsessed with crazy collars, cowls, and neck things, the weirder the better.  I attribute this to 1) my techno-snob aesthetic and 2) growing up in Canada.  In an upcoming post i’ll spell out the hallmarks of the techno-snob style a bit more for the non-southern Ontario ravers.

Fast Forward: Gareth Pugh AW 2008

[Ed. note – i’m sick so not much commentary this week.  Sorry ] “Sometime during the genesis of this collection, the Wizard of Oz bumped into Predator” (style.com) Holy shit Style.com, I can’t think of a more appropriate stylistic description.  Well played. [Another ed. note.  Not so well played style.com, you have the worst photos of this collection online.  You might as well have your editor just write prose than use this photographer.]     […]

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.

Rewind: SWEAR Colombo

Pretty much any Colombos

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 […]
