WDYWT (Flash back version)

MAN, I wish it was still summer. I say this but I do love winter and throwing on a nice big coat.

Currently wanting to grab a hat and camera and take a walk in the sun. I am one of those kinds that pretty much has a camera on them at most times. Despite my usual complaints of bursting into flame in anything slightly warmer than Newcastle, I do love some summer and I spent this one living in a Village by a zoo. If you thought I meant the residents, you are an awful person, but on hindsight…

SO then, what garms did I fancy rocking;

Hat: Supreme, SS16, Motion Logo, Black.

T-Shirt: Supreme/Haynes Tagless, White.

Shirt: Penfield, Black/Pink floral.

Jeans: Nudie, Long John, Light Denim.

Shoes: Vault by Vans, Authentic Jacquard LX in Jungle Check, Black/White.

These shoes  are 100% the outfit highlight. In my top pairs that is for sure, show me something snazzy and Vans and I will try my best not to take any L.

Winter is coming.

Is it just me or is it absolutely freezing in the UK now? As my Grandma would say “enough to freeze off someones brass balls”. Please imagine that being said extremely Geordie (Newcastle Upon Tyne accent? Think Geordie Shore but a 70-year-old lady, not whatever things they are..) Also extremely concerned for whoever has brass balls.

If like myself, you are refusing to admit that it is this cold, lets pretend we are still in Autumn not full-blown winter weather.

My recommendation for this last bit of Autumn? 100% has to be a Belstaff light biker jacket. If you don’t know what Belstaff is, you have been missing out, I guarantee once you have a look into these you will be wanting one. Originally designing clothing for motorcycle riders and racers the brand went on to be registered and Trademarked in 1927. Ten years later the civilian range was available across the UK. The brand rose slowly and steadily but it wasn’t until the 90’s when it truly built upon its iconic brand gaining even more popularity in the fashion world. Belstaff always ensured it held onto its ties in motorcycle racing, with its iconic styling of jackets such as the Trial-Master built to last any endurance race.  Belstaff  has always been at the forefront of Britain from aiding with the war effort, to icons such as David Beckham (Golden balls frozen off… brass balls? Could be a link, I’m on a tangent) modelling and creating a collection, to the stars of Hollywood; Will Smith wearing a custom in I am Legend. (Why can’t he make movies this good anymore?) Belstaff has been a part of British motorcycle, British History and Culture for over 100 years and it is showing no signs on stopping now. It’s now reaching globally and gaining more fans than ever, so make sure you keep up to date with this brand.

Leopard

Since Autumn is full of Halloween, I recommend leopard print. Always a contender and my wardrobe possibly has too much. All Saints always have a great leopard print shirt in each season, make sure you have a look and get in there. Also I picked this Vans number up back in 2012 in Berlin, I had packed nowhere near enough, passed a Vans store so I stocked up. This is the last surviving T-shirt, Skate and Destroy, I guess.

Autumn Crisp.

I don’t know who doesn’t look forward to the start of fall. With Autumn fully upon us, it’s now that time of year to get out the warmer clothes. 

Before Winter hits, first is my FAVOURITE season. Autumn. Where the leaves are vibrant, pumpkins are ready for carving, one of the greatest holidays is here and conkers bounce off your head when you go venturing for a stroll. 

(HALLOWEEN, if you were wondering about one of the best holiday’s, check out Tuesday for some non-costume outfits with some edge). Shameless self promoting future blog post plug.

SO. What is essential in your Autumn Wardrobe? We all need some sturdy solid boots for walking and why not get some that look the part. I’m recommending ‘Red Wing’s‘.

Funny story, when showing the other half Red Wing’s in End she said she hated the exact pair I owned. Slightly wounded. Still like to prod fun on this one. Shout out to Bottom Drawer Decor, (blog coming soon) if you are buying a house soon check out what she does, she has an eye for making a room pop, and me buy it, and build it, and carry it, wait I see a pattern here…

If you haven’t heard of Red Wing’s check them here. Hailing from Minnesota in 1905, this is a brand that has lasted the test of time, and on your feet you can guarantee they will last . . . Maybe one pair won’t last you 112 years (could, maybe, probably not). But get yourself out and buy some and flex. 

The wavier the garm the better, always.

So Autumn is that time of year where you can bring out all the oranges and rusted red’s in your arsenal. The outfit that I have put together features a striped Supreme LS Tee from SS17, a Rust Red beanie from FW16 these two pieces are great together because the tones compliment one another perfectly. Combine these with a solid pair of deep navy Nudie Denim and you are almost ready to go. Deep denim goes perfectly with almost everything. Next is footwear, some Autumn trainers could be your route much like mine has been, or to dress the outfit up put on some brown boots (Red Wing’s, yep, I’m a fan – is that obvious?). With any shoes, make sure the detail is on point, I’ve gone for the Thrasher X Vans Sk8 Hi’s. One of my favourite pairs on my feet so expect to see these plenty. 

Now, get out, enjoy Autumn, carve some pumpkins, stroll in them woods, kick some leaves (watch out for dog shit, anyone else worry when kicking leaves they will kick a steamer? Or have I not grown up yet?) and make sure them conkers don’t fall on your head.

TNF X Supreme Season is back.

HYPEBEASTS around the world will be going crazy right now, as Week 9 of FW17 for Supreme is about to drop. With possibly one of the biggest collabs season after season, high price tag, higher demand.

The North Face X Supreme will be here and gone in seconds. Get prepped as Pt1 drops this Thursday. This Hypebeast is waiting for Pt2, if you’ve seen the mock ups you know the earth, wind & fire coming.

What does Pt1 bring? 

Leather Nuptse Jacket: Rating this around a 6/10, nice jacket, not sure about a big padded leather jacket though. Regardless this will sell out FAST.

Leather Base Camp Duffle: THIS is where it’s at, giving this a solid 9/10. All about the red, this is a bag that would sit in any collection perfectly.

Leather Day Pack: This bag gets a 7/10, for when you want to carry some but not all your hype, swap for the smaller bag in this drop.

Leather Roo II Lumbar Pack: 5/10, feel indifferent, nice pack, not for me. I am 100% on the fence here.

Leather Gloves: 0/10, NOPE. These look like something straight from the murder scene in an episode of CSI.

Strong collab, but my money is sitting pretty in my pocket till Pt2 of The North Face X Supreme.

Vans X Brain Dead

When you gifted some real FIRE. 

Vans X Brain Dead. These two Iconic brands collaborated on a capsule collection built up of 2 Shirts, 2 T-shirts, a hat, a bag and 3 pairs of trainers.

The Pink pair are already a staple in both mine and my girlfriends wardrobe, although we don’t allow each other to rock at the same time. I say WE but anyone will know that they listen to this boss. #AfterAnEasyLife

Vans X Brain Dead Pink Era LX

Vans x Brain Dead Old Skool LX

“Brain Dead is a creative collective of artists and designers from around the world. With its disruptive, graphic-led approach, the brand takes its cues from post punk, underground comics, skateboarding, and the spirit of subculture as a whole. Brain Dead is not one person, nor is it one idea. It sits in the space between people.”

Brain Dead to me stand for the different the idea that sitting outside of societies norms is fine, after all who wants to sit in the norm? 

From the offset, the box makes these a stand out pair in my collection, who doesn’t love an exciting box to stand out in the footwear collection. The graphics scream Brain Dead the punk, skate aesthetic of the graphics embody destruction and individuality.

Combine these asthetics on a pair of Old Skool’s, lose the stripe across the side and give a pastel tone and Vans X Brain Dead have created possibly my favourite capsule of footwear. With two of three hitting the shelves in my collection, definitely think the yellow slip ons might have to be tracked down.

Being a Geordie, having a shop like END in Newcastle Upon Tyne is nothing short of amazing. Usually these stores are London based, Footpatrol kicking about the East End. SO being able to cop fire in person like this is something that I don’t take for granted. Only wish when I lived in London I had the funds to allow me to cop all the ‘Preme and Palace in person.

This season pastel colours are in, and they are in BIG, vans are getting in on this with these exclusive colour ways. I think my collection may need 3 of 3…

WEEK 1 Pick ups. 

Perfect t-shirt for your other half to go psycho on, guide marks to help them fuck up your shit. Perfect accessory to show your feels on that basket case. Give them the finger in style. Pin badge, no reason. Part of the pin badge collection, which I have. For no reason again.

MASSIVE L.

Hysteric Piss

SUPREME X HYSTERIC GLAMOUR

Week 5 seen Supreme Collab with HYSTERIC GLAMOUR, a Japanese cult brand brought into fashion by Supreme. Majority of the Expletive collection sold out in minutes with the belt in under 30 seconds (BOT and Autofill required, I guess…) .

Team Cosy wanted in on this big, and surprisingly the Fuck You Faux Fur Coat sold out in under 2 minutes. Fur real this is a popular piece… 

Hypebeast can also sleep in comfort in their new Duvet + Pillow set, if you wanted to put that much cash in on a duvet cover & pillow case. The only piece I picked up from week 5 was the mug, this Hypebeast made a mug of himself and paid £38, delivery wasn’t speedy on this for me it arrived latte…

OK. I apologies for that last one.  

Week 6 Supreme X Andres Serrano

After spending years of my life studying art and hours in galleries I always jump on the artist collaborations. For me to see Andres Serrano as a collaborative artist with Supreme is one of the most exciting. I’ve seen to much art to fain interest in the basic and boring, I want something that shocks, angers, disgusts. Art in it’s true form and nature should bare an impact, leave you with some form of emotion. I always remember my love for art starting on a school trip at 14 and viewing a painting of hell. For the life of me I can’t remember the name of the piece or the artist, but the fear it instilled in me still drives a creative passion.

Andres Serrano on the other hand shocks and appauls his viewers. The piece Piss Christ is a crucifix in a glass jar and filled with his own piss. Photographed, printed and then destroyed. Multiple times. THIS IS ART. The anger and passion that people feel over this is what art should do. 

As a fan of this piece and the artist I feel like I need to tell you Andres, please drink more water cause you are one dehydrated fucker guy. 

YEP, mate you need to drink the ocean let alone your 2 litres a day fella.

Throw this on a T shirt, and his blood and semen on a hoodie and some Vans and you have killer collaboration. For me the piece of the week is the Sk8 Hi Vans, my love for Sk8 Hi’s has been strong since age 12. Have you seen these? Absolute FIRE.

NdBJKJWaEUY

Causing controversy and seeing that Supreme aren’t afraid to push the limits with creativity and lack of care in offending anyone is how things should be. As soon as there was an opportunity to flex in this drop, I was all over it.

P.S. The L was took on the trimmers, phone crash...(damn).

Week 6 is here.

Trim boiz, get the most Supreme fade of your life.
Screen Shot 2017-09-27 at 22.11.49

Trimmer so strong it could shave Chewbacca. 

The one and only cop is the Supreme®/Andis® Envy™ Li Adjustable Blade Clipper. Some fresh pieces dropping but nothing I will be heading out for apart from this. Aiming not to take a L on this. I will update you on my next post, which will be when my week 5 arrives, week 4 arrived yesterday!? So another double post coming.

 

Anyone that claims to have understood every word spoke in Scarface is a liar. 

Slightly sad that we aren’t seeing any of the Scarface collection dropping this week, this is a set of tee’s that I want to see and is going to look fresh a.f. Don’t get high on your own supply.

PS. Is it too early to mention the Bape x Supreme collab? This will be some next level FIRE.
