When I think of Belgium, I think of waffles and Godiva chocolate, but apparently the streetwear scene is also alive and well in this northern European country. Avenue just opened its doors in Antwerp, and stocks such notable brands as Fucking Awesome, Rockers, DQM, Nike Quickstrike, Caliroots denim, 10Deep, Patta, and The Hundreds. Sorry, no waffles.
Yes, that’s Joyce Lex, (the lady behind, and in front of, Sinful Things) gracing our bench with her presence. Just hammering out the kinks for the SLB/FISM block party on Rosewood this Saturday, and her Sinful Things sale at SLB throughout the weekend.
The Arab Parrot swooped by The Store today to lace us with his extremely limited run of Parrot-endorsed t-shirts.
Just another day on the corner of Rosewood & Fairfax. You know, music video shoots for teenybopper celebrities, vintage sports cars, whatever.
Sal’s (SLB) been busy running the manliest store this side of Castle Grayskull.
He’s also gearing up for the weekend, as SLB and the FISM crew are throwing a block party on this same corner, on Saturday, between noon and 5. The party’s also doubling as a Sinful Things summer sale, so get there early.
Then later that night, Fast Eddie will host the re-launch party for Sjobeck at his shop downtown, Fast Eddie’s Garage.
Expect lots of tattoos, rockabilly chicks, tires, and beer. Bring Your Own Testosterone.
Good morning. So just to change things up, I went around and asked some of the crew to submit their favorite Youtube music videos for today’s blog. Of course, half these retards didn’t take the assignment seriously, which is why they’re gonna be paid in back-pats and wooden buttons this month.
