Some deep thought.

Posted in Personal on February 21, 2009 by strikewithnumbers

As we all venture out to new yonders, never forget your past, and where you came from, and what struggles came with that. For those of you who read this blog but know nothing about my personal life, I’ve just been hired as an assistant merchandise coordinator for Levi Strauss & Co. for a Los Angeles region. In a way I’m really excited, but really scared at the same time. In comparison to having a retail gig where being young and somewhat irresponsible is a tad acceptable, moving on to corporate is definitely something completely new to me, hopefully I live up to my own personal standard and succeed with flying colors. I’ve wanted this more than anything in the past, and to finally reach that goal, I’m once again back on track to wanting success within this fashion wholesale world. The reason why I say no matter how far one can get within their lives, no matter how much success and achievements one can attain, forgetting their own personal struggles to get to where they wanted to be will just leave them blind and alone in the end. Especially in a field I’m pursuing where people are constantly stepping on one another’s toes for success. Even though I’m going to be in Pasadena/LA 90% of my life now, I’m still here for whomever in my little bubble I call my personal life if ever they need anything.

Yesterday marked the 46th birthday of the NBA’s all time greatest athlete. Michael Jordan. His airness completely redefined the game of basketball. NO COMPARISON.


Goodbye VISVIM US.

Posted in Fashion on February 17, 2009 by strikewithnumbers

yea, yea….
Apparently I’ve heard from a couple sources visvim will be discontinuing their push of product in the US and apparently HUFSF will still be carrying their G-line.. but the pricepoints will be through the roof. They’ll be stepping up their “already great” quality standards, thus another reason for their price jumps. Apparently they’ll be pushing more towards the European clientele…


Grenson x Odin New York

English footwear company Grenson does a 2 piece shoe collaboration with Odin New York. Which is an upscale boutique specializing in men’s
quality goods from footwear (common projects) to jewelry (Phillip Crangi). The two shoes are comprised of 2 classic silhouettes. One of them is
a canvas made oxford shoe, which obviously mixes business with pleasure.

And another shoe which is a leather chukka boot.

These shoes can be found at ODIN New York both retailing a tad over 300USD.

Every month Johnny Cupcakes will be doing a limited run of t-shirts (65 each store) for both his Boston and his LA stores.
This month (today actually) he will release his first batch of “baker’s dozen” tee’s.
So kids, skip school, and buy these limited and numbered pieces of indie artwork. You’re mom will understand.
