From the department of What You're Rocking/Peep Your Steez/Boom! comes "Julien's Japanese Madras Tie" from Dolbeau. For those who don't know, Dolbeau is a Montreal-based purveyor of seriously fresh accessories--ties, scarves, lapel pins, and bracelets. It's the kind of stuff that adds zing to your daily look, and this little madras piece is a prime example. A collaboration with author/artist Julien Smith, the tie is cut from 100% Japanese madras cotton and is tipped with eco-friendly Japanese Bemberg cupro. Its lining is in two layers, brushed cotton and spun horsehair, which give the tie an easy, pliable feel and a lightness appropriate to the warmer months. It is available in six different colors and patterns, and the width is spot-on at 2.75 inches. In case you need additional incentive, each tie is individually cut and sewn by hand in Canada.
The Air Yeezy sneaker is a collaboration between Nike and Kanye West. It's Nike's first such collaboration with a non-athlete. The first edition dropped in '09. The Yeezy 2s drop June 9, 2012. It's safe to say that there has not been a more anticipated sneaker release this year, and maybe ever. There are those who disagree, and that's fine, but you're of the mind that the Yeezy 2s are the most sought after kicks in recent memory for a reason. Kanye and Nike really nailed it this time around.
Good luck getting a pair. Production and distribution are extremely limited. Camp out or enter a raffle or something.
The first pics are of the Wolf Grey/Pure Platinum colorway; the last two are of the Black/Solar Red colorway.
