Patagonia’s Worn Wear Wagon Wetsuit Repairs

by The Editors on June 6, 2018

The Patagonia Worn Wear Wagon is hitting the road again this summer, only this time, they’re bringing the gear to repair wetsuits as well (any brand of wetsuit).

Patagonia’s Worn Wear program was created in 2013 to encourage people to change their relationship with stuff. The program provides significant resources for responsible care, repair, reuse, resale and recycling at the end of a garment’s life. Known for building highly durable products, Patagonia strongly believes in the intangible value of things that accumulate meaning over time. The memories contained in patches, stitches and scars can’t be replaced with something new – and Worn Wear aims to help customers celebrate those stories.

If you wetsuit (or any of your Patagonia gear) is in need of a fix, bring it in. One item per person. For all the details, follow the jump.

by The Editors on May 17, 2018

Monster Children, the Australian born, sideways action culture magazine, has announced the transfer of their SoCal office from Eagle Rock, California to “a new workspace and gallery” in Far Chinatown that they will share with Pabst Blue Ribbon. The new spot looks exactly as we would expect — sparse, empty, exposed brick, concrete and plywood floors, a pinball machine, and the occaional PBR logo/product.

Located in a renovated warehouse in the industrial area just north of downtown and across from LA’s State Historic Park, ​1700 Naud ​will also house offices for both Monster Children and Pabst, along with temporary work spaces in an area of LA that is attracting substantial investment from the creative community. Neighbors include David Chang’s new Majordomo restaurant, NYC’s Baby’s All Right, Paradigm Entertainment Agency, Werkartz artist studio, and the groundbreaking street art and graffiti exhibitionBeyond the Streets.

For the official word from the kids, please follow the jump.

Mall Zombie Collabs Rule

by The Editors on April 30, 2018

More evidence that some brands never say die comes from a new collab between Maui & Sons and mall denim company American Eagle according to a story in Apparel News.

On June 1, the denim-focused American Eagle will debut a collaboration line, called American Eagle x Maui and Sons, with the heritage surf brand, said Blake Harrington, executive vice president of licensing and business development at Maui and Sons, headquartered in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades neighborhood. . . The collaboration line will be available exclusively at all American Eagle doors, which number more than 1,000 stores in North America, China and Hong Kong.

Seems like a really cheap way for American Eagle to get some quality retro, surf T-shirt graphics. Good on ya, zombies.
