I have been meaning to post this for quite some time …. and as of late .. I have to admit.. I’ve been overwhelmed with alot.. (good weather x parties x shopping x family x job hunting)… but with today’s forecast being as gloomy as it is.. has given me enough time to post..

Duncan Quinn.. to me .. is by far one of the best independent designers/tailors of the times.. and to show my gratitude… I stopped by to ask him a couple of questions ( being the great journalist I am).. and .. since it wasn’t that far from my every day commute…I made a quick detour to 8 Spring St.. where I sparked quick convo with the lad.. about an interview. and..although I wasn’t able to capture any pics of him..(slippin’ on my pimpin’)… I was able to catch some pics of the store.(most important thing)…  as well as ask  Quinn some in-depth but brief questions about Life x Collaborations x Brand….

Enjoy

Deluxe The Street Tailor

deluxe-japan-autumn-winter-2008-front

The Japanese street fit.. is all about the denim.. especially if its selvedge.. you know the blue and white strip you find in the inner seem of those hard denims you own.. and if you’re an addict for blue blood the way I am … lend an ear to Deluxe… because this brand pushes the denim aside (which most of us should do at least one day in the week)… using a semi-dress style.. with the usage of dress pants and other materials.. that give that same denim look…. and since I am a fan of anything classic… Deluxe keeps denim in there back pocket .. while highlight everything around it..

Band Of Outsiders Fall Collection ’08

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Before I close out.. officially.. and hit the couch for some shut eye… I want you guys to be up on things the same exact time I am … and although this video post is a lil bit overdue.. it’s from the Band Of Outsiders camp … So.. no matter how old it may be (a couple hours) .. It must pass through here before or after the hype…

P.S.

Sene x Sleep = Recharged for Tommorow

Award Tour x Private Rebellion Collection

fws

Whew.. I was faced with one of those weekends again.. you know.. the one that contains more work than play.. yeah man.. It’s that time of year again.. you know..  the time where finals are kicking you in the face … and your sole objective is to incorporate that bad party habit.. the one that you tried to kick months back.. but never got the courage to put aside for more important purposes.. yea.. It was one of those weekends.. So this weekend… homework was pushed aside untill the last minute.. (sunday)… where I pulled an all nighter… But.. Aside from my usual… I stumbled across a brand that is obviously influenced by the pursuit of higher learning and the Tribe… yeah man.. It’s Award Tour… BABY.. with “Muhammad my Man”… a phenomenal brand ran by a crew of youngsters from the PHILY (all capitals)..  so If you haven’t heard of them.. then get to know them.. because… Award Tour captures that chilled Cambridge Swagg (Dap!) … officially founded in 2007.. the Tour can take on the title of Stussy or Neighborhood… in my opinion.. plus..  I am fully drawn to this company.. So.. Don’t be surprised if I post this brand a million times through out the year.. because just like… they are family based.. we at Ties and Crowbars.. have fully invited the Tour in our living room.. check out the ’08 collection.. entitled “The Private Rebellion Collection”

P.S.

Why didn’t I come up with this idea (Award Tour).. I know I know.. hate is such a strong word

Filthy I remember you told me about these dues a while back too…

The Twins

dee-ricky-no-mas-starter-jacket-bags-2

If you are from New York and you are aware of the fashion scene … you probably know or have spotted these two (or if you don’t get to know them) walking around Soho,NYC… It’s amazing how I have seen these guys change from store rats into Fashion Icons over a period of three years (and they are still young).. It’s like fashion times two.. not only will you hate the fact that he is fresh… but the fact that he is styling on you twice as hard… (Note: studies show that there is always one twin who completely goes astray from the other)… The resume behind these two are pretty solidified.. from what I have seen … they have modeled for BBC… NO Mas (Christopher Isenberg x Dee & Ricky) .. A.NY.THING and a lot of others.. Now they are both pushing and sporting an idea that ended up as the  trademark for KANYE’s 808 & Heartbreak album… Lego Hearts anyone… Yea they are the originators of the Lego Hearts… Yeah.. the same Lego Hearts that are being pinned on every style inclined oxford… 

peep the fact they found a way to incorporate an etch a sketch pad to a belt… 

Oh and did I mention they are Musicians.. (now I’m mad)

Air Jordan Hi – Strap

brad-renfro-13

Jordan x Nike has had me dipping a little deeper into my pockets for this past year and a half… with their re-releasage of classics… you can’t do much but try hard to withstand the storm of temptation.. It’s almost  like you want to turn the other cheek.. but you are getting hit from both sides.. right?.. I mean.. I wish I was wrong.. I mean are these people getting smarter.. or am I becoming more desperate for something new.. I dunno..I’m mad that I have to purchase these.. I am a fan.. of the O.G. and innovation… So.. there is no way I can turn away from a piece that incorporates both… 

November 22nd (next saturday) I will be purchasing two pairs

P.S.

and you thought this year was bad.. eggplant Foamposites anyone (Feb ’09..SHHH)
