We have always known Weekly Drop to be done in a audio interview format, but now in addition to their normal Weekly Drops, they have written interviews done as Weekly Drop Reports. For their first interview, they talk to the people behind streetwear label 3sixteen and it’s definitely an interesting read, so be sure to check it out at Weekly Drop.
Here are some more detailed pictures of the Burton Flight Hoody that has surfaced on a few blogs. This here is a first sample, so keep in mind that some of the finishing isn’t perfect and that there might be some changes to it. Disregarding that though, and after running it through a field test yesterday this hoody is now coming on all my trips.
Essentially, it is a technical sleeping bag, with enough swagger to keep you all feeling good. High premium cotton ensures pleasurable wearing and sweet dreams. There’s an extra layer of cotton sewn into the hood, so when you put the hoody on, you can pull a mask over your face to help you counting sheep. Also, sown into the hoody is a inflatable neck support air tube that you can blow up like a life vest. That, in combination with an inside IPOD pocket, 2 hidden pockets on the front, and some Burton earplugs this is the ultimate comfort and function flight piece so far. Scheduled to be released soon.
Here are the first sample photos of the upcoming Vans x Huf 3 Feet High sneaker and they are done in a pinstripe pattern featuring the skyline graphic on top of the Vans logo. These will not be produced and we’ll have to wait until they make the final version of this sneaker that is scheduled for release in March.

There’s a lot of things to get excited about from the Burton company and it seems that they are heading in the right direction with their Warhol Products, iDiom line, and Mark XIII collection. For their team up with the Andy Warhol Foundation, expect colorful printed jackets, and boards bearing Andy Warhol and his artworks. For the Mark XIII collection, there is a new double breasted trench coat on the works. iDiom also has a few things brewing with new polkadot and plaid jackets that’ll soon hit your Burton retailers. Check them all out now after the jump or at Steven Vogel’s blog.
