Wouldnt it be great to be Naked & Famous

Well here's your chance. Based in Montreal, Canada, Naked & Famous Denim prides themselves on providing “striped-down luxury goods for reasonable prices”. I like the name because it is sort of makes fun of overpriced "Hollywood" and "Glamour" brands as well as our celebrity obsessed society. They have found some pretty creative ways to make their no frills label quite unique. Instead of washes rips or embroidery, they've added 30% silk to their Japanese raw denim for a more comfortable feel.

"Naked &Famous Denim is doing something that no other luxury brand has ever done before! We are the first luxury brand to actually be concerned with providing value to our consumers. Value is usually a taboo word in the luxury segment, most think Walmart when they hear the word. But we don’t care, we are fed up with over-priced undervalued brands, and are here to unmask the bullshit of the “premium denim” industry. We do this by creating a far superior product using expensive and rare Japanese fabrics, but we keep everything raw and simple so we can sell our jeans at reasonable prices. Every other brand competes based on design, trends, or who has more celebrities wearing their products. N&F is the first and only “Luxury Value” brand."-Brandon Svarc(Founder & Designer of Naked & Famous Denim)

You can find Naked & Famous at places like Barneys.

This is the only Black Friday sale that moves me

Well, today is the big day. Remember? It’s Black Friday and nevermind the blowout sales, the big day were talking about is the release of the DJ Clark Kent designed Black Friday Air Force 1. The Black Friday AF1 released early this morning (4am) at Nike Sportswear 21 Mercer New York. Next stop is Concepts in Boston and later on today Superman himself will arrive in Miami for the Shoe Gallery release.

The shoe has black pony hair covering most of the upper with other cosmetic accents that include lenticular material on the back panel, swoosh, and tongue as well as an unmistakable mid-sole wrap made of black patent leather with a chameleon paint effect. The shoe is finished off with with a leather lined interior giving the ultimate luxurious touch to compliment the outer part of the shoe. This is clearly a $300 shoe that Clark somehow arranged Nike to sell for $150, Why do they skip over DC so much!! I need these in my life. More pics inside. via NiceKicks

R.I.P. Sean Taylor-1 year later

On this very day last year, 11/27/2007, Sean Taylor of the Washington Redskins life was brought to an untimely end! Not only was Sean one of the hardest hitting men to ever play the game of football but he was also a father, a son, and a soon to be married man. A man that took what some would call a negative past as fuel to build a positive future. He was feared by WR's, QB's, RB's, & TE's on the field and loved by millions off the field!! We can only wonder what greatness he would have brought to the sport, the Redskins, and his family's future but lets take a second to take a look at the impact he had on the field while he was here!! My prayers still go out to his family and friends. If you have anymore clips or memories please leave them in the comment section. Remember, tomorrow is not promised so learn to appreciate the ones you love while they're here because you just never know!!

If you have been anticipating the release of Pastelle the way I have, then I have some great news for you. After making headlines after his appearance at the AMA’s, Kanye clears the air regarding specifics on the release of his highly anticipated clothing line, Pastelle. Both the jacket seen at the American Music Awards (which he designed less than 3 weeks ago) and the hoody spotted at the Dior show will see a release this coming January as well as a more subtle varsity piece seen here. After much speculation, the kicks he was wearing were officially Louis Vuitton sneakers and once again the Air Yeezy’s are confirmed to drop in March. Definitely another busy month for Kanye.

Air Jordan 2009(2k9) First Look

Here is an early sample of the Jordan 2009, 2K9, 24 or whatever you want to call em for all you Jordan heads that won't give up!! In my opinion Jordan Brand has fell off years ago!! They need to just keep retroing 1-13 and Spi'zikes over and over again in OG colors to make it work!! I can't see the real deal look any better than these. Hopefully, JB will prove me wrong!!
