J.Money x Black Scale – One of the first brands I noticed in streetwear was J.Money. The brand from New York doesn’t get as loud as others, but they stay grinding. And for 2015, they link up with West Coast heavyweight Black Scale. The collection comprises of plenty of graphic T-shirts, but above the usual staples, the project also includes a colorful palate of prints and patterns. The collection is available now at select retailers, or directly from J.Money’s online store.
LG G Pad II – A tablet release isn’t going to get the same sort of fanfare it would have five years ago, but the device is still a relevant part of everyday life. Improvements are constantly being made and the latest G Pad II from LG is a behemoth with upgrades nearly everywhere. The screen now measures 10.1 inches and offers sharper HD resolution by display capable of 1920 x 1200. The processor and ram have also been updated, and the tablet is a viable business option with the inclusion of Microsoft Office. This hefty tablet will be paired with an equally large 7400 mAh battery.

adidas Energy Boost Pigeon – adidas’s Energy Boost is nothing to write home about, but when it arrives in one of the most recognizable colorways in sneakerdom, it will catch looks. The mid-tier runner arrives in a colorway made famous by Staple when they famously teamed up with Nike SB. Using various hues of grey with a punctuation of black and red, the colors make a profound statement. Unfortunately, this exclusive is only for the ladies, but since adidas doesn’t fuck with width sizing, simply add 1.5 to your current shoe size to pick up a pair.
Coach MA-1 – Bomber jackets are all the rage, and one of the illest pieces to come out this season is from an unlikely camp. The classic silhouette of the MA-1 has been perfect by Coach.

The leather accessories maker sticks with the tried and true military olive green with gunmetal detailing and a ribbed collar, waist, and cuffs. Using a water-resistant waxed nylon the jacket retains a classic military look, and is available in stores now.
