Makia Warehouse Raid

Thank goodness for brands like Makia. They recently sent me a bundle of their latest Finnish-designed product including this permanent fixture on my coat rack: the Button Up Hooded Sweatshirt. Apparently it’s also a favorite of musician, actor, and Viking Vesa-Matti Loiri. If you’re still trying to catch up with Makia, check the documentary below or visit MakiaClothing.com

Rapha Summer 2012 Jerseys

09 June 2012, 02.17 | Posted in Art & Design, Cycling, Fashion & Footwear, Products, Uncategorized | Comments Off

rapha_club_jerseyI’m 50% positive that I have dual personality disorder. Today I’m going to be all copywriterish about some of the new product from Rapha. These gents continue to amaze with the functionality and fit of the new Club & Super Lightweight Jerseys. The qualifications for wearing one? You simply need to ride a bike and ride it fast. Ditch the speed chute you’ve been wearing and get one of the best jerseys available from the masters of minimalism and craftsmen of smart style (sounds like something from the J Peterman catalog). Available at Rapha.cc and other fine cycling retailers worldwide.

WAAR/We Are Runts First Look

No longer a part of the Comune camp, Michael Quinones is now involved with a pretty exciting new label called We Are Runts. I’ll let them do the explaining:

We Are Runts [or WAAR] is a creative lifestyle brand built with a product assortment of repurposed vintage military surplus and or short run/deadstock fabrics.  Each piece has been updated, reconstructed and adapted with a modern silhouette while keeping the color palette and utilitarian details of military garb, in addition to being manufactured domestically.  Essentially, it is a collection and identity of kids that grew up, but never stopped loving their youth and what has shaped their lives now as adults (well, sort of adults).
Conceived on the decision to rely on each other, not work for others, the idea of RUNTS and the history of the name really began a while back for us.  We’d constantly refer to each other and our larger group of close friends as ‘RUNTS’ in the industry.  We were always the little guys in the office as far as ownership, and were constantly looking out for each other.  That is the same mentality that we’ve tried to bring here; a group of friends working together and looking out for each other.”
