FLEET FOOTERS BY 10.DEEP
If we told you that 10.Deep continually does it, you would probably come back at us with a question asking what exactly “it” is. Well, in this case, “it” would have to mean producing garments of the utmost desirability. You would then probably ask us how we know 10.Deep’s goods are so desirable. And to that, we would respond by telling you to cool with the questions man! But after that, we’d tell you how this Fleet Footers Teamshirt is the perfect combination of a jersey and a T-shirt. And how the white and navy contrasting panels and the striped cuffs and v-neck are the details that create sought-after merchandise. But don’t go and pull a rookie mistake and overlook the embroidery on the front and back - you’re much better than that. Go get yours now, HERE.
REMEMBER YOUR DREAMS
As John Lennon once said, “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” Have you ever been trying to recount a weird or amazing dream to a friend and you just can’t put the pieces together? There’s an innovative new app called Shadow that helps you record and remember your dreams. It wakes you up with an escalating alarm that gradually transitions you through the hypnopompic state from sleeping to waking. Once you’re up, type, speak, or answer questions to record your dream as you come to consciousness. The brillant thing about it is, over time, patterns emerge. The longer you use the app, the more accurate and rewarding the experience becomes. Download it HERE and never forget your awesome dreams again!
USER FRIENDLY BY OAKLEY
We don’t know about you, but riding a packed train to work in the morning with loose headphone wires has resulted in unwanted snags more than once. It’s kind of embarrassing and definitely kills the vibe. The User Friendly hoody from Oakley stands to solve the loose wire problem with a hidden loop hole in the front pocket. You can easily feed your headphones through the grommet lined portal and zip your hood up ensuring you’re only getting that downtown-bound cutie’s attention if you wish to. Available in four different shades of that heather hue HERE.
PAC-MAN BY HAVAIANAS
We’re about to really date ourselves here, but growing up the first game system we had was an Atari 2600 and the first game was Pac-Man. You see, when you only have a single game to play you spend hours, days, weeks with the singular task of beating that game. Pac-Man became one of our best childhood friends and the ghosts, well to this day we’re not a fan of those dudes. Thanks to our buddies at Havaianas we can revel in our youth all summer long with these flip flops. They actually glow in the dark! They’re available HERE for dudes (and ladies too).
DISCHORD BY SPY OPTICS
The surfing-biking-skiing-snowboarding bros over at Spy Optics hooked us up with this pair of shades aptly named the Dischord. Just so happens these glasses share the same name as one of our favorite record labels, so straight out of the box we liked them. They’re custom built with high quality propionate and six-base PC lenses for 100-percent UV protection. They’re available with tortoise, orange, blue, and black frames HERE.
STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
So you know we love movies right? Star Trek Into Darkness kicks off the 2013 sci-fi summer blockbuster schedule, officially opening in theaters today. Fans say it’s a “must see!,” so even the critics have to line up for this one! It’s okay if you’re not a Trekie, J.J. Abrams is an incredible storyteller. He’s the director behind the movies Super 8, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, the TV show Lost, and he’s about to start working on Star Wars: Episode VII. Get your popcorn and your 3-D glasses ready because it’s all about the visuals with this one. The set design and the costumes are also amazing. Into Darkness lays the groundwork for young Captain Krik as he grows into his leadership of the Starship Enterprise. This flick is probably going to be the summer’s best feel-good sci-fi movie. Aside from the awesome visuals and costumes, J.J. Abrams allows each character to come to life throughout the film. Even though the setting is way in the future, each character shows lots of old school traits based on friendship, trust, loyalty, and honor.Go check it out!
Thievery on any level and in any environment is something that needs to end once and for all. Now, while I know that it can never be stopped entirely, we’d like to think that there is hope for stopping it in such places as, we don’t know, say the lunchroom. Check out these anti-theft lunch bags. They’re zipper bags that have green, mold like residue printed on both sides to deter those pesky sandwich bandits. This simple little trick will make you like the Batman of the break room. Plus, now you won’t have to get to the fridge only to find out your lunch was consumed by some over indulging co-worker named Bob; not that we’re describing any one in specific. Pick yours up HERE.
RAINS BLACK BY TOPMAN
When the skies open up and the rain begins to fall, looking proper while trying to stay dry isn’t always the easiest thing to do. But here at NYLON, we don’t like to sacrifice style just because a little inclement weather has crept our way. That’s when we look to the team over TOPMAN to keep us in check. They sell this blacked out, waterproof jacket that will not only keep you dry, but have looking sleek as well. It’s a 50-50 blend of polyurethane and polyester, so don’t hesitate to throw in the washing machine after wearing it through all those catastrophic downpours. Available on-line HERE and at TOPMAN retail shops.
COOLER COVER BY COLEMAN
What’s that saying about a house divided? There’s something about football that always sparked great debates in our living room growing up and on one occasion salsa was thrown, ruining mom’s couch, but we digress. The basic fact is, where two or more are gathered, team favoritism will cause tension and if you’ve found yourself arguing about which team to rep at the weekend BBQ you might need to check out these Coleman cooler covers. We suggest a truce and maybe you grab a couple, they’re only 24.99 and this way you won’t have to buy four different coolers to keep the family happy. Check out all 15 team options HERE and stop fighting, or at least take it outside!
FRENCH FRIES BY 212
Whether you call ‘em chips, pomme frites, or french fries, we don’t care, we’re gonna come clean about our love for this beautiful food right here and now. You may recall a previous post or two about that umbrella or these socks. A new venture from “Bowery” Bobby Waltzer, of Peg Leg fame, and Sebastian Bear simply called 212 recently released this French Fries shirt and we’re bout it, bout it. This 100-percent cotton, digitally printed wonder with pearly yellow buttons is going to look good with a red bow tie at our homie’s wedding next month. Yes, we’re serious about this french fry affair. Cop one HERE and fall madly in love with the rest of the 212 collection of goods.
AIR MAX BY NIKE X A.P.C
Often times a beautiful marriage yields many offspring, and when it comes to the NIKE and A.P.C union we’re so glad to welcome their newest baby into the world. You may remember their first release of the ‘court’ back in 2008. The American sportswear brand and French fashion house dropped their second collaboration sneakers last year, and when the shoes sold out in hours it was obvious that this was a match made in heaven. The latest offering consists of two styles, the Air Max and the Dunk, available in monochromatic colorways. The Dunk will be sold for $100 and comes in black and hay. The Air Max, our personal favorite, in either all white or all black are going for $120. Depending on where you are, they might already be sold out, check HERE for shop locations and get on the phone now!!
FLORAL CAMPER 5 PANEL BY STUSSY
When you put floral print on a 5-panel strapback, you’re almost certainly going to wind up with a piece of headwear glory. It’s basically a recipe that’s impossible to mess up. That being said, you’re still going to find certain brands that will do it better than others. In this instance, Stussy is that brand. They’ve decided, as usual, to head to the kitchen and cook up some heat by creating this royal blue, red, and white colorway. The Hawaiian floral is noticeable, but not too loud, and of course the hat is finished off with a few bold Stussy typefaces and a Stussy logo. Like I said earlier, not all floral 5-panels are created equal. Buy yours HERE.
MARAUDERS 93 SHORTS BY A TRIBE CALLED QUEST
Listening to Midnight Marauders last night around, well, midnight, the realization that our college girlfriend probably still has the last A Tribe Called Quest we owned sent us on an internet search. What did we find but something better than we could have ever imagined: the Marauder 93 shorts. If you didn’t already know, the album was released in 1993, and if that was before your time, then there is no day like today to discover this classic. These hand-sewn shorts are made right here in NYC and we’re pretty sure no girl is ever gonna walk off with ours. Get yours HERE and remember that seven times outta 10, you’ll probably wear them at night…while listening to Tribe.
OWEN JACKET BY J BRAND
Browsing through the J. Brand website we came across this Owen jacket and immediately thought of this photo of one of our favorite dudes Eddie Vedder. You know, a jean jacket, is a jean jacket, is a jean jacket…unless it’s a piece that makes every outfit better. This number from the experts at J Brand is slim fitted, made of 11.5-ounce denim, and available in vintage marble (blue) and vintage grove (olive). Whether you put it on and listen to Ten is up to you, but we do know it will definitely complete your look. They’re selling out so head over HERE before they’re all gone.
