Jimmy Sweatpants x a number of names* – Jimmy Gorecki’s path started with skating, and now it’s migrated to the world of streetwear. Jimmy’s knack for athletic fleece created his moniker Jimmy Sweatpants, and with that he brought another level of quality to the casual staple. For this latest drop, Jimmy teams up with the UK’s a number of names* to drop two exclusives. Made from 100% cotton, the sweats are available in heather grey or tie-dye with both pairs made in the USA, and ribbed waistband, drawstring cords, ankle draw chords, and extra crotch gusset.

ASICS Gel-Lyte V – Another white Gel-Lyte V from ASICS is no surprise, but the execution for this latest drop is sick. Using the right ratio of grey and black, these runners have a slick resemblance to the Air Jordan 4 White/Cement. The uppers use a fresh white mesh and suede upper, and there’s just enough grey for the ASICS logo on the quarter panel. The tip of black across the sneaker adds the finishing touch, and makes it a clean runner for summer.
Poler High & Dry Pack – Poler has built a reputation on making some kick-ass outdoor gear, and now they add a dry stuff bag to their library of goods. The outer body is made from a splash-proof 300D Campdura material, while a thicker 600D Campdura is used to reinforce the bottom. The interior is lined again with a 190D Campudra lining, and the roll top enclosure ensures your things stay try. With the waterproof zippers and the built-in laptop sleeve, the High & Dry works well on the streets as well as the campgrounds.
Stussy Stock Canvas Bag – Remember back in the ’80s and ’90s when girls would carry those big-ass Esprit tote bags? Southern California’s Stussy wants to bring the trend back and offer their their stock canvas bag. Made from 100% premium cotton, the bag arrives in a natural color with the familiar Stussy script logo across the front. Another black colorway is on the way, and retail is set for $35.
Redux Courg Titanium Watch – As a watch fanatic, I recognized right away Redux’s Courg took a big bite out of Sinn’s U1. Using that diving pedigree, the Courg is an affordable alternative with an aviation-inspired dial. The case is made from lightweight and durable titanium, and they use a reliable automatic movement by Seiko. Measuring in at 39mm, the watch is smaller than most modern timepieces, but there’s no doubt it’s still a looker. Available in four variants, the watch is available now with a reasonable retail price.
Mood NYC Summer 2015 – Skate brands are pretty easy to come by in streetwear, but those that are skate to the core are rare. Mood NYC is one of those rare brands that are still keeping it raw, and for Summer 2015, it’s business as usual. The graphic T-shirt is at the core and within the series are a couple of interesting flips and novel prints. Look for Mood to also add soccer shorts, acid wash fleece, and some sick accessories.

Tanner Goods FW15 Salt and Pepper Collection – Tanner Goods got its start with leather, but by the looks of their latest fall and winter drop, they have a way with textiles too. Look for the Portland-based brand to drop the Salt and Pepper collection with a series of bags that blend a unique salt and pepper woven with premium leather. Engineered to original Swiss military specifications, the durable woven is made from flax and nettle divers that is then coated with DWR (Durable Water Repellent). This is the first time this textile is issued out of the Swiss Military, and is set to hit stores soon.
