Dice Magazine x Neighborhood Clothing Capsule Collection

One of my personal favorite clothing brands and magazine.

They did a great job on the collab. I know it's a late post, but I love this collection they put together.

Backed with this bad ass video.

 Air Jordon 3 Retro "Infrared 23"

Following this weekend’s release of the Powder Blue colorway, Jordan Brand will drop yet another brand new take on the Air Jordan 3: the “Infrared 23″ edition. A nod of sorts to the impending return of the beloved “Infrared” Air Jordan 6, the White/Black-Cement Grey-Infrared kicks pair a tumbled white leather upper with both perforated black leather and elephant print paneling as Infrared accents are apparent throughout. Due out this Saturday, January 18 at Tokyo’s Kinetics, the “Infrared 23″ 3s will soon be available at additional Jordan Brand stockists across the globe.

Lifestyle | Knife

The Douk- Douk Knife

Meet the Douk-Douk Knife — a no-lock mechanism, no-nonsense, slipjoint knife. Forged from high carbon steel, the knife features a Turkish clip contour blade with a ferro-blackened folded steel handle. With a quick flick of the wrist, this slim, smooth action blade is ready for action and is supported by a strong back spring for safe opening. Originally designed for French colonies, the handle has been etched with native French-colonial mythological creatures — douk-douks –and bears a Melanesian spirit incarnation image that is believed to bring good luck. The Douk-Douk Knife retails for $32 USD online over at Best Made Company

My Beetle Addication

I've been sitting at home and drooling over these cars. 

All I have to say is, this is going to be a good year. I can't wait to have 

my keys in my hand. Until then I'll keep drooling.

BAIT x ASICS Gel Lyte ||| " Basic Model-002 Guardian"

After bringing you a preview of the BAIT x ASICS Gel Lyte III “Basics Model-002 Guardian,” we’ve now got a full look at the upcoming shoe. Expanding on the concept of the “Basics Model-001 Vanquish,” the “Guardian” is a conceptual take on a shoe designed to withstand the harsh conditions of a dystopian world. To that end, the shoe features a reinforced metal wire mesh upper with a custom camouflage pattern visible beneath it and rugged nailhead suede overlays. The wire mesh also features subtle 3M reflective hexagon print on the toe, side and heel. Waxed laces, a black suede formstripe, speckled midsole and orange outsole complete the look for this latest collaboration from BAIT and ASICS. Retailing for $150 USD, the shoes will be available in-store at BAIT’s Diamond Bar and Orange County boutiques on Saturday, January 25. Head over here to register for your chance to purchase a pair.

Cars | Brian's 1973 Vw Beetle

This is my most recent video. I shot it just before the sun went down in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca. 

This video is just a teaser, I'll start shooting the full video tomorrow. 

I'm kind of excited, it's been a while since I've made car videos.
