Ato Matsumoto Snow Boots

with one comment

After the great reception of his last cowhide boot/ sneaker Ato Matsumoto now shows some high winter boots that are sure to also turn a few heads.





While they definitely aren’t your everyday boot, they do look like they could withstand a Syracuse winter with no problem. On top of looking pretty comfortable and warm, they also have a lot of character in the zipper down side, puffed out tongue, and velcro straps across the top.

Not sure if I could pull these off but I’d love to try. Unfortunately they’re running for about $630US so I’ll probably never get the chance.

Check for them now at Rowage

Clot x Original Fake Tee

leave a comment »

After a few weeks of teaser pics we finally get look at the highly anticipated Clot x Original Fake tee.



This uber limited tee comes in 4 colorways with the front and back graphic shown.

The random bits of non credible information that I have are that it will be released at Juice HK and The Original Fake Store Tokyo exclusively. The Juice release being this Friday.
I’ll update with any more information I get, and will pics from the HK drop.

Hong Kong Releases – Silver & Gold Bape 88s

leave a comment »

After dropping in Japan and then NY, the Silver and Gold Bape 88s released this Sunday in Hong Kong.
I got there around 8am…

I was lucky number 13…



Almost didn’t get my size but someone was nice enough to trade numbers with me so I got the Siver Hi’s as planned.


After waiting in line we all were brought into the store, which was completely empty, every sneaker off the shelves and all clothes off the racks. The only product visible was the 4 sneakers released which were displayed in the front of the store as almost a prize when you walked in. It took a little while of people trying sizes on and a scare when someone stole my 11 but all was good, a very smooth release.
The people waiting and the staff were both the nicest out of any drop I’ve been to, especially compared to certain NYC shops that will not be mentioned.

I.T. Hong Kong – 20th Anniversary Pop-Up Store

leave a comment »

The fashion kingpin of Hong Kong, I.T., is celebrating their 20th anniversary this week with a collection of collaboration items to a scale we have never seen before.
Here are some quick pics from the opening day



There were crossover shirts and items done with the likes of Neighborhood, A Bathing Ape, W)Taps, Sophnet., and many more local brands.
The begining of the event was for VIP IT Visa card holders only, so the most hyped and sought after Neighborhood and Bape shirts sold out before the general public even had a chance.

The event will last through the weekend and it’s definitely worth checking out, very nice pop-up store located right in Times Square, Causeway Bay.
