Everybody loves Palace right now cause they styling so correctly, no arguments here and this new cut from Danny Brady proves it – dope editing and smooth street action from Mr. Brady, what’s not to like. Brady also skates for Lakai, and as a localized bonus peep a Lakai in Vancouver vid after the jump, lots of cool spot spotting for loc dogs.
Damn… perfect video for a grey Thursday morning here on the island. Familiar from the post that sits below this one, here Jordan and James are repping for Danner’s fall 2013 Stumptown collection. This vid is pretty much the 84/85 summer in 1.5 minutes: logging road rips, remote lake swims and epic views from the campsite. The pacific northwest is a feeling, and only sounds like a cliche if you don’t know what I’m talking about…
Love us some Jason Jessee and big fans of Converse CONS and Santa Cruz skates as well, so this collab is a triple win: been looking to break the Vans cycle and try a pair of the new CONS and this just might be the one.
Released in conjunction with their collaboration with Victoria BC’s Viberg Boot, Canadian tastemaking retailers HAVEN have produced this video shedding light on to the history and current trajectory of the Canadian footwear icons. Interviews with patriarch Glen and son/creative director Brett intersect with footage of the production line, giving a great look in to the daily operations of a tried and true domestic manufacturer. Quality first: a pretty damn good mantra. I’m lucky to work with Viberg on projects myself and have massive respect and appreciation for what they are doing in our home city, as well as world wide.
‘The Vans #86 Lampin was originally produced in the USA in 1993, introduced at the time as an updated durable skate shoe. This summer, Supreme will be releasing a new version of the Vans Lampin.’ The first ‘Preme collab we’ve featured this season, can’t knock the ongoing quality of the Vans connection and these are no different: oxblood / navy colourway is my personal favourite.
Teetering on the edge of overblow, Solomon manages to keep this video on the inspiring and beautifully shot end of the spectrum, a treatise of why we seek the outdoors and the serenity of being embedded in nature. I’m no trail runner or nordic skier but I can appreciate the sentiment, I usually can’t turn off the mail client and browser quick enough at the end of the day and trade them for the soundtrack of a freewheel through country roads. Nice work from a brand who is wisely following the lead of other content creators in their marketplace.
Scout is a new line of outdoors goods set to be launched in 2013. Based in Seattle and the brainchild of Ben Masters, the collection is bare-bones: single blade lock-back pocket knives, a chambray pocket square, an insulated selvedge denim and chambray field bed, a single pole tent and a boot in conjunction with Oak Street Bootmakers. Ok, bare-bones but in a gucci way. This photoshoot is the product of Florida’s Makr visiting Masters for a camping trip in the PNW Cascades, testing out the gear, beauty. All pieces available for pre-order now.
Japanese/UK label The River here shows off their s/s 2013 collection, futuristic urban/nature looks that while overall land on the more precious side of the spectrum than we usually endorse, still has plenty strong moments and pieces. Not gonna lie, socks and sandals is a win for me here, as well as the restrained use of camo… keep reading for more.
