$100 for a pair of Camo Cargos?


I’ve been hunting for a high quality pair of military cargos for the past week or so (Old Navy durability isn’t exactly reputable). Took my search to eBay and ended up finding some pretty obnoxious prices. For freakin’ cargo shorts! People are rolling this one particular brand out for $85-100 accompanied by a collage of Lil Wayne images rocking the same pair to boost their street cred. Nothing special about them however. Simply a standard pair of Marc Jacobs cargo shorts that retailed for around fifty bucks on their website. That was before the resellers caught wind of Weezy wearing them and decided to cash in, using the all too familiar “hypebeast” factor.

You figure now a days your average teen sees a pic of his favorite pop rapper donning a pair of anything and he immediately wants in. Resellers take this into consideration and view it as a great opportunity. They promptly purchase as many units of product ‘x’ they’re able to until they are OOS everywhere.  Now they can dictate the market and become capable of flipping them for double or triple the price they paid. That’s exactly how resellers work. They prey on the beasts. They do it with sneakers and they do it with apparel. Well I hope I’m not too late in exposing them in regards to this specific item. Did a bit of research and am now 100% certain these $100 Marc Jacobs shorts being sold on the ‘Bay are nothing more than a pair of $30.00 Rothco Infantry shorts with some unnecessary MJ tags slapped on them. So even if you’re a self-proclaimed hypebeast or simply like the “camo dress” look Wayne is sporting, don’t waste your hundo on the Jacobs. Snag a pair of the exact same shorts without the Marc Jacobs logo for nearly 1/3 of the price HERE. Every size available.

Abercrombie & Fitch are some hypocrites with this whole Mike “Situation” Sorrentino publicity stunt

NEW YORK (AP) – The Situation doesn’t usually require a lot of motivation to lose the shirt. But Abercrombie & Fitch wants him to go one further – the company has offered to pay “Jersey Shore” cast members to stop wearing clothes carrying their brand.

The preppy teen retailer said Tuesday it would pay a “substantial payment” to Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino or any cast member who stops wearing its clothing on the popular MTV reality show because the series is “contrary to the aspirational nature of the brand.”

“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image,” the retailer said in a press release.

These idiots should have checked their past t-shirt lines before dropping this nonsense on the Situation. They think this dude will damage their image? I’m thinking these A&F corporate fags have never walked into one of their own store fronts or taken a look around at who wears their $70.00 cargo shorts. Damaged is something their image is well past.

Valens by The Hundreds

Summer is right around the corner. Perfect time for the Hundreds brand to drop the Locs inspired “Valens.” The shape screams LA circa the NWA days. This particular pair of Locs features a shiny black acetate frame with gradient gray lenses. Also available in other colors. Cop here for $79.00. Great way to separate yourself from the countless number of hypebeasts who rock Wayfarers.

Sailor Jerry Rum and Clothing…

splash_rumstuff.jpg

The other day whilst shopping for a new bottle of booze, I decided to pass on the Appleton Estate and instead grabbed a bottle of 92 proof Sailor Jerry Rum.  Doing some research, i found out Sailor Jerry is the Jedi Master O.G. of tattooing and a brand sprung from his prodigees to honor his legacy.  Truth be told it tastes better than Captain, its cheaper, it has a higher proof, and I suppose its cooler now that I know the story behind it.  Captain and Jack are my go-to booze for a night out, but at home I’m now a Sailor Jerry fan.

Not only do they make and sell some of the best rum I’ve tasted in a long time but they have a ridiculous clothing line of tattoo inspired designs, selling everything from shirts to corsets.  This  brand cuts Captain Morgans throat and pops a buck shot in Ed Hardy’s chest.  I even had to give it 2 pics…
