XLarge’s second collection of summer gear is dropping early next month. A small preview includes a logo New Era (partly inspired by China?), a multiple colored stripes set of shirts and two styles of plastic frames, each available in different lens. Check with XLarge dealers around your area for availability.
While the original pairing of Stussy x Original Fake for OF’s 2nd anniversary revolved predominately around sunglasses, a further look into the collection includes a few more items. Utilizing OF’s familiar imagery, some attire perfect for the beach plays to the strengths of Stussy’s roots as a surf brand including board shorts and a towel. The board shorts are slated for a May 3rd release while the sunglasses and towel are yet to be determined.
Whenever you approach staple items such as work boots, a successful product requires a little bit of ingenuity in creating something fresh for a style which has undergone many design alterations from various brands. Japanese brand Cause took a familiar silhouette made famous by Red Wings and added some beneficial features. Shaving the weight and offering a perforated tongue for breathability, together these two go a long ways for a better wearing. Two material choices are available, black leather or sand colored suede.
As an accompaniment to the R3 sunglasses from Recon (among them, a joint designed by Futura), technical brand Acronym and accessories maker Bagjack put together a special case. The case features a wrap around flap on the front, fastened by a button. No word yet on a release date.

One of the most well received and well documented video games in the last few years, Grand Theft Auto IV has been perceived as one of the most detailed creations of its kind incorporating numerous features to create an extremely realistic gameplay. Rockers NYC had the opportunity to outfit Jamaican gangsters Little Jacob and Real Badman in vintage Rockers gear. As the game is quickly played and details uncovered, I wouldn’t be surprised to see more cameos from various brands.
