The Hundreds Gets Grizzly

by The Editors on May 5, 2017

The Hundreds and Grizzly Griptape introduces its second collaboration offering, rooted in friendship and mutual respect between both brands and feature illustrations done by prolific graffiti artist, illustrator, and war photographer KC Ortiz.

“The pieces all stand alone but there is a narrative connecting all the work with Adam and Grizzly’s adventure against the system. They are two buddies thrown into situations out of their control, over and over (like any good buddy franchise), and they are able to team up together and beat their enemies in their own style and terms, like true rebels do,” Ortiz said of the collection.

by The Editors on May 4, 2017

In celebration of May the Fourth Nixon has released a limited edition Star Wars watch — The Boba Fett Diplomatic.

The Boba Fett Diplomatic is equipped with a Swiss made ETA 2824-2 mechanical automatic, three hand movement with sweep seconds hand and custom engraved movement rotor.

The box looks even better than the watch. . .which will cost around $2,500 (only 100 made).  Wonder how many of these Todd Richards has scooped up? For the official word from Nixon, please follow the jump.

Patagonia’s CEO Is Watching You Donald

by The Editors on April 26, 2017

In a presidency that becomes more absurd with each day, the Trump administration is now moving to review all of the United State’s National Monuments and Patagonia’s CEO Rose Marcario doesn’t like it one bit. She says:

Our National Monuments were established after extensive public input because they provide unique and irreplaceable cultural, ecological, economic and recreational value worth protecting for our children and our grandchildren. As stewards of America’s federal public lands, the Trump administration has an obligation to protect these most special wild places. Unfortunately, it seems clear they intend to do the opposite.

In a statement released today (Wednesday, April 26, 2017) Marcario urges everyone who loves America’s public lands to contact their members of Congress and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to “express outrage at the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back National Monument protections.” For the official statement from Marcario, please follow the jump.

LRG Sold To Mad Engine

by The Editors on April 26, 2017

We never really followed the clothing company LRG (Lifted Research Group Inc.), but it appears the brand has been purchased by San Diego, California based Mad Engine, LLC, according to a story in the Orange County Business Journal.

Robert Wright and the late Jonas Bevacqua founded the Irvine-based urban streetwear brand— better known as LRG—in 1999 to serve as “a bridge between skateboarding and hip hop. . . “In the months we have spent getting to know each other Mad Engine has shown a commitment to LRG’s future,” Wright said in a statement. “I am optimistic about this new chapter which creates the ability to grow the LRG brand and creates new opportunities and experiences for those involved.”

Mad Engine is a licensing company that works with major consumer brands like Disney, Coca Cola, and Mars and then distributes it through Walmart, Hot TopicKohls, Target, et al.  This likely means that LRG sales likely be bigger than they’ve ever been very soon. Here, we’ll let Big Engine tell you all about their company.

Fish By Fish: Jeremy & Jayde

by The Editors on April 10, 2017

The story of Jeremy Fish, his wife Jayde and how they’re ruling the San Francisco art scene is spelled out in the SF Weekly and it’s worth a gander. Check it:

Both Jeremy and Jayde have achieved celebrity status within the fringes of the established art community for some time, and Jeremy has become a cult figure in the skating industry for his tripped-out line work, often depicting tiny, somewhat morbid, pink bunnies. The image originated from the calling card of a skateboarding crew he created in the ’90s: The Silly Pink Bunnies.

Remember the SPBs? Sure you do. For the rest of the story, flick the flink.
