PAC-MAN 30th Anniversary

I've come to that age where i'm almost the oldest guy in the room most of the time.
Which makes it even worse to know that im just that bit older than PAC-MAN who is having his 30th Anniversary this week.
Google have done a special Google X PAC-MAC edition that maybe most of you have seen, but did you know you could play it?
On your Goggle home page for a limited time only.

The sun is shining and my sneakers are beaming!!

I love it when the sun comes out, gives me the chance to rock my pearly white BW's. Yeh!!

Pissed I can't make it "RESET"

I'm really gutted i'm going to miss RESET because I'm going to be abroad.
Big ups and sorry to Jude, Second Son and everyone there. I wanted to be there and I know its gonna be a day not to be missed. Hope the sun comes out for you lot.

The RESET returns this May Bank Holiday with 14 independent UK brands selling their collections to the public.

The event takes place at the 1948 (Nike) space as a 2 day pop up store with music and food. Wah! Nails will be providing something for the ladies and Zone7 style providing something for those of you keen on your vintage.

The reset is a community event with no entrance fee so come down and support your local brands!

The Brands selling on this two day event will be:


They've done it again.......

Over the last few yours we've seen Second Son pulling away from T-shirt prints and putting together some dapper, gentrified, cut and sew pieces. From their salvage denim, which holds its own in terms of cut and hi quality, to their shirts with little fine details and pig suede elbow patches. Also not forgetting one of their most resent ventures with DURKL on making a deer stalker cap, complete with pipe.

Well, i'm here to tell you that Rufus Exton and Will Kemp founders of Second Son have done it again.

With amazing color and fabric choices we see them produce some pretty stush belts.
All hand made in italy using but only the finest of materials and i'm fully loving the embossed logo on the buckle, nice touch.

You'll be able to purchase these exclusive at the Reset day and then on the Second Son website there after.

"SEW WHAT" @donutsthestore

It's been a long time coming, but Second Son and their extended family member Nash Money have finally got around to making a collab. Nash has transferred his signature moccasin cross stitch from sneakers to clothing with a large-scale photographic print that circles the entire hem of the tee, topped off with a collaborative logo crest at the chest pocket. The t-shirt is available in two colourways: Nash's trademark electric blue on a white tee and bright teal on black. The Second Son X Nash collab will be launched in-store at Donuts in Bristol on Friday 23rd April. The first drop of Second Son's S/S '10 range will be available for sale alongside a display of Nash's best custom work and a photographic exhibition. Music will be provided by Noisses and Crazylegs DJs, while the free booze comes courtesy of Havana Club rum. Be there or be square...

Pending photo shoot to come.........
