We Wood Watches


We Wood is a company born in Italy that makes watches almost completely out of wood. The intent is to create products that are all natural and 100% free of toxic chemicals, in addition to that they will also plant one tree for every watch purchased. It’s cool to see companies finding ways to be eco-friendly in random industries you would never expect.

Neuvo Watches


Neuvo watches take the classic ’80s looking watch and add subtle hints of modern style to make for the perfect retro-futuristic look. The watches are currently available in four different finishes and sold exclusively at their website. The best part is they have a very reasonable price tag of only $45.

The Best of Online Boutiques & Shops

The Best of Online Boutiques

Summer is around the corner and I have been looking to switch up my wardrobe a bit for the new season. I thought I might share some of the online boutiques and shops that I frequent for clothing, as well as other shopping for other stuff like travel or gifts. Some of them you probably know of already, but hopefully there’s one or two in this list that you haven’t heard of. Have a peek.


80’s Purple
This is probably my favorite online clothing boutique, and the one I visit most often. They carry many designer brands such as Orisue, Modern Amusement, Cheap Monday, Insight and a lot more.

Tobi is similar to 80’s Purple. A huge selection of both men and women’s clothing, as well as bath supplies, electronics, jewelry, fragrances, hair products, home products and more.

This isn’t a shop or boutique exactly. It is, however, one of the best resources online to find the coolest stuff online to buy.

Zappos probably has a lot of stuff you would have zero interest in. They carry a lot of stuff your Mom, Dad and even Grandma might like. But they also have some really cool and cheap stuff too. If you are looking for a bargain, it’s a good place to check out.

Contrary to Zappos, Oak is not a place to head for bargains. Most of the clothing you will find here is pretty pricey, but if you are looking for some designer clothing that you are not likely to see anyone else wearing check it out.

Upon first look Revolve may seem like a website most of your local club douche visit on the regular. But if you are willing to weed through the shitty brands they do have some good stuff like Ksubi, Beta Unit, GRN Apple Tree, Clae and a bunch more.

Need Supply
This is a clean, simple boutique with a lot of good random stuff for both men and women.


I had dinner with the creators of this shop the other night and they are very cool people. This site gives designers and creatives direct access to buyers, in a very clean and well designed website. Each designer is approved one-by-one so you are guaranteed to find quality goods.

Flight 001
If you are like me a travel a lot then you take pride in your travel gear. You like to be organized, prepared and stylish while traveling and Flight 001 helps you do just that.

Design Public
If we were all rich we would probably shop here instead of Ikea.

A cool place for random gifts and whatnots.

Did I miss some? Let me know and comment below.

New Boxfresh Shoe Line

The UK label Boxfresh known for their awesome threads has released photos of their new shoe line coming out in the second quarter of this year. From the photos provided they all look to be a loafer-style, with thin soles. The model shown above, called the Sipp, is my personal favorite. I love the velcro strap and the large perferated area. Very slick. The line will be available at Coutie when they are released. More photos after the jump.

Grizzly Nights Tees

Lately I have had a thing for simple, duotoned or black and white tees. Grizzly Nights have a line that features fairly basic, but yet bold designs. The tees are designed, hand screen printed and labeled by Grizzly Nights themselves. I really enjoy the minimal approach, using black and white, basic shapes and hand drawn illustrations.

In Your Closet NYC

I hate Ebay. Truly can’t stand it. But In Your Closet NYC is one of the cooler websites I have seen utilizing Ebay. If you are living in New York City and have some extra stuff laying around in your closet that you want to get rid of, In Your Closet NYC will raid your closet and sell it on Ebay. It’s kind of like consignment that makes house calls. It looks like much of what they specialize in is more vintage looking clothing, but they will also sell your books, toys and more. So whether you are are looking to buy some cool shit, or live in NYC and want to sell some cool shit In Your Closet NYC has your back.

GRN Apple Tree – Women’s Line

I have been a big fan of GRN Apple tree for a long time now. I am happy to see that they are taking the dive into a women’s cut-and-sew line, and from the looks of it they have done a great job for their first attempt. In most cases when designing women’s clothing I think there is more room to be creative with the cuts and overall design, and they have taken advantage of it. The piece shown above is a good example of this. The line should be available in retail stores by the holidays, keep your eye out.

Poketo T-Shirts

You have most likely seen Poketo’s awesome artist wallets. But what you may not know is Poketo also has a really cool line of t-shirts as well. Most of them have a really artsy hand-drawn type feel to them that I really like. They are reasonably priced, many of them as cheap as $18.

I am really digging the Diamonds design and Deer in the City.


Despite the overly bubbly/cutesy logo, the concept behind PleaseDressMe is a great one. PleaseDressMe is a search engine designed specifically for t-shirts. The site allows you to search different tees according to color, price, keywords, tags and will also select random tees if you’d like. They have also developed a Firefox plug-in so you can easily access their search. It’s a really good concept, I hope the quality of their results improves and grows. At the moment you get a lot of “College Humor” type results, but I think this will quickly change.

Blood is the New Black

When it comes to graphic tees I am all about simplicity. I really like the combination of simple shapes and good colors. Blood is the New Black has a bunch of designs by a bunch of different designers that fall into this category. I am also always down to support a small company that prices their product at a reasonable cost. Many of the shirts over at Blood is the New Black are under $25, and they are having a sale right now! I am excited to see future work from featured artists at this label.


As Promised, more content for the ladies. It appears as though the female focused streetwear style blog/online boutique Cultist has “revamped, restocked and relaunched” their online store. The store has some really cute stuff from labels like Insight, Hellz Bellz and WESC. I especially am liking their selection of dresses.

GRN Apple Tree

GRN Apple Tree has long been one of my favorite clothing companies. Throughout the years they have managed to stay unique with their designs, avoiding most of the overdone/overused trends that most clothing companies fall into. There is a series of GRN Apple Tree’s newer designs that I particularly like. The series features large prints and masked monochrome or black & white photos, masked by angular shapes. The designs are large and bold, but stay fairly minimal without being to over-the-top. The Pommier V-neck, Snap Shot and Lamp V-neck are a few of my favorites.

Das Monk

As far as I am concerned the quality of graphic tees has pretty much been on a downward spiral for the past few years, but once in awhile you find some gems. Das Monk has some cool minimal, but well designed tees. Best of all they ship for free worldwide if you buy 2 or more tees.

Hooray For Earth – Surrounded By Your Friends (Twin Shadow Remix)

Thursday, October 21st, 2010


Twin Shadow has been making some waves throughout the internets lately. I recently purchased his new album Forget, and I must say I quite like it. I am also really liking this remix he has done for Hooray For Earth, who I had never heard of before this song, but will surely be checking them out after hearing it.

Muscles – Girl Crazy Go (Muscles Inception Remix)

Monday, October 18th, 2010


The last I heard of Muscles he had quit the music business because of problems with his label Modular. This disappointed me because I love his music. However, I was happy to see that if the rumors were true at the time he has apparently changed his mind. A new EP by Muscles titled Younger & Immature is due out October 29.

Here’s a remix of the first single from the EP ‘Girl Crazy Go’. Check out the music video for the original version here. From the sounds of it Muscles hasn’t lost his musical touch, or his ego.

Sleigh Bells – Run the Heart (Bassnectar Remix)

Thursday, October 14th, 2010


Music by Bassnectar isn’t something I would normally post here. For the most part I feel his stuff is for dirty rave hippies, and if you read this blog at all you probably know how I feel about the wobbly bass-heavy Dubstep. That being said this remix done of Sleigh Bells‘ song ‘Run the Heart’ is still bass-heavy, but not completely overboard. It also manages to keep a lot of what makes the original track so good.

Martin Solveig ft. Dragonette – Hello

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010


Chances are if you spend any amount of time on the internet you have heard ‘Hello’ by Martin Solveig featuring the lovely Dragonette (considering it went number one on Hype Machine). But I couldn’t resist posting this super-fun dance-pop masterpiece. It’s basically impossible not to want to dance to this song. I don’t know a lot about Martin Solveig, but from what I have heard and seen so far I am liking his stuff. Purchase the EP with several remixes on Beatport now.

Millionyoung – Local Joke (Neon Indian Cover)

Friday, October 1st, 2010


Millionyoung, aka Mike Diaz, is shaping up to be one of my favorite artist of 2010. I really love this cover he has done of Neon Indian’s ‘Local Joke’. He adds his own personality to the song, so much that it sounds as though he could have written it. I am looking forward to a full-length album from him.
