These should speak for themselves. Unfortunately these guys are a custom pair by a guy named Sander Nagel, so they could be a bit tougher to get your hands on. Click on his name to link to his site and see some of his other amazing sneaks.

This thing is legit. Designer Alexandros Stasinopoulos did an amazing job of creating a watch that not only functions in an unconventional way but also looks very cool. I hope it actually makes it from concept into reality so that I can get one.
This is a brand that I just recently got into. I am a big fan of some of the plaids they produce. The looks are very simple and traditional and the clothing is well made and will last you for years. They also make some very classic bags. Take a look if you know what's good for you.
The guys from Homeroom Clothing have come out with another solid line this season. Taking inspiration from the traditional American working man, they did a great job of presenting an understated look with a great rugged and yet low-key feel.
Riviera Club is a new Brand out of Santa Barbara with a California look and a very relaxed feel. For a first season they really did a great job with the plaids and pants. Love the line and hope for more good stuff to come...
I havn't been as excited as I am for the movie Where The Wild Things Are in quite some time. I can't think of anyone better than Spike Jonze to take on such a daunting task as to remake one of the most beloved children's books of all time. In addition, the side projects that have been going on such as the pop-up shop have displayed a really fresh and new way of marketing. I am especially excited about the newest team-up because it is with one of my favorite stores. The newest collaboration with Opening Cermony turned out really nice and was not overdone. I especially love the ring.
Up and coming artist Matt Kenny will be participating in the Flatbush Artists Studio Tour on November 7th and 8th. He is one of my favorite people (also a personal friend) and you will not regret making your way to Brooklyn to see the exhibit before he gets too big. Most of his pieces are oilpaint on aluminum.
And as if the neon colors weren't cool enough on their own, the watches are completely customizeable at the online Toy Watch stores! The watches retail for $175 USD. Mix and match to find the best fit for your style.
After conquering Soho and the East village, men's clothing boutique Odin has opened the doors on their third store, this time in the West Village at 750 Greenwich Street. The store gives off a very rustic feel and also gives shoppers a little more space than its other locations. Heralded as one of the best men's stores in the world, this is one shop you should definately check out if you are ever around the area.
You may not know street artist Dain by name, but if you've ever walked the streets of Brooklyn, you are most likely already familiar with his work. Brooklyn born, his art is marked by splashes of neon colors added to old black and white photos. Fittingly, his first solo exhibition is now being displayed at the Brooklynite Gallery. Be sure to get over and check it out if you have a chance.
The exhibit will be showing Thursday - Saturday from 1PM to 7PM from until Monday, October 10 at The Brooklynite Gallery at:
In an fresh and ambitious marketing move, Steven Alan presents the sping/summer 2010 looks in a very pretty short film taking place in the countryside. Big props to women's designer Whitney Pozgay, men's designer Jesse Rowe, and of course to the always impressive head designer Steven Alan himself who makes a brief cameo in the film.
