via hypebeast.com Contemporary label OAMC has been turning heads since dropping its Spring/Summer 2014 collection last year. Spring/Summer 2015 collection has a stronger, more defined aesthetic. Perhaps there is something to the brand’s self-prescribed “tough high fashion” mantra; OAMC impresses like a flick of the chin to European runway affairs, unabashedly grabbing influences from technical sportswear, sleek Italian tailoring, and straight up dock-ready workwear. The result is an undeniably complete and versatile collection of goods, done exclusively in upscale materials and well capable of competing on catwalks –- should it ever be distracted from standing with its cigarette outside.

via coolmaterial.com Teqball is a new game, and piece of equipment, that’s essentially the combination of two Olympic sports. From the ping pong (aka table tennis, aka Forrest Gump’s favorite sport after running) side you get a two-sided table with a “net” that can be folded up to practice solo. From the Soccer (aka football, aka futbol, aka the most popular sport in the world) side you get the ball, no hand contact and sweet headers. So yeah, you’re playing table tennis on a sloped table with a soccer ball and soccer rules. In addition to being a game you... Continue reading

via www.inventorymagazine.com While I greatly appreciate the care and attention put into every Visvim collection, there is often one piece that jumps out more than all the others, seeming like it would slide right into a vacant space in my closet. This season that would have to the be the Visvim Nomad Jacket 2.5L. The brand's staple parka looks particularly good in this vivid red colour, and the Gore-Tex shell, button-up storm flap, and drawstring hood with a fold-out brim would make it very useful in the coming months when sunshine turns to rain.

Built on a Vibram Gloxi-Cut sole, it features a rough out moose hide upper and gunmetal hardware for something a little more... Continue reading
