  • It's On

    Posted April 15 2012

    The code: WINTERFLASH nets you 40% off through Wednesday. If you didn't know, now you do.  Here are our picks for what you should not let slip by: Hunting Jacket in either Indigo or Charcoal This is perfect transition jacket into Spring. It's a great weight to keep the chill off and yet at the same time not too heavy to have you over heating by midday. Both colors are also versatile and will easily play back to our color palette for Spring.  Plaid Shirt in Brown and Green plaid and Tan and Black plaid Both shirts are amazing to wear....
  • Hey Ladies

    Today on Refinery29 Mauro dispensed some advice for the ladies of DC. Some other guys did too but really you guys should listen to Mauro first.  They did save the best for last.
  • Flash Sale!

    Posted April 14 2012

    It's the end of winter. Spring is coming around the bend (and if you live in the mid-Atlantic, tomorrow specifically), so we think a flash sale is in order.

  • You Should Eat Here

    Posted April 14 2012

    If there is one place in the city where you are sure to find us on a regular basis, it would have to be the Queen Vic on H Street. Owner and prorietor, Ryan Gordon and head chef Ian Reeves, have developed a wonderful menu of classic English dishes with a twist. Nothing beats a Pimms Cup on their deck in the Spring and Summer but during the cold season a pint and an order of sticky toffee pudding is just as nice. You can find them at: 1206 H St NE  Washington, DC 20002 (202) 396-2001 and www.thequeenvicdc.com
  • The Root Of It All

    Posted April 14 2012

    Unless you've been living under a rock, you have noticed that a great spirit made in Pennsylvania is gaining a lot of popularity. Art in the Age's  'ROOT' is an amazing beverage that tastes just like root beer because it uses the exact same recipe that was originally used to make Root Tea back in the 1800's (with the exception of sassafras root witch was banned by the FDA 50 years ago - haters). What's even better is that ROOT is 100% certified organic. Seriously there's nothing you can't love about this. Since this it is happy hour we though we...
  • The Ass

    Posted April 14 2012

    In case one hadn't noticed, everyone here is big into music. Nick Cave is one of the many favorites spanning from his time with The Birthday Party and onto The Bad Seeds. Some of his best work, though, is found through his work as an author.  And The Ass Saw The Angel is a perennial favorite and a constant reread that blends Cave's dark story telling sensibilities (who doesn't love Tupleo?) into a Southern Gothic setting that forces you into a wild, dark, and gruesome narrative.  This is a great video of Cave circa '92, reading an excerpt from the novel: You should really add this...
  • Pop a cap in your glass.

    Posted April 14 2012

    We love having small gatherings. When we couple that simple truth with a desire to add a little humor in the things that we do, it becomes easy to see how this handgun ice tray from Fred and Friends caught our attention.   The level of detail in each cube is wonderful, notably the inclusion of beveling on the slide grip and the raised screws on the handle. The tray even carries a gangster feel with it being shaped like a briefcase. The packaging is just as considered as the product itself (the tagline is still smile inducing) which sparked...
  • Songs For The Road

    Posted April 14 2012

    We are headed to NY today to show our Fall '12 collection to buyers so we'd thought it's be fun to put together a mix of the sounds that we will be enjoying on our way up. Who knows maybe this will be a thing. Click the album art or here to download the mix. track list: The Cramps - Human Fly  TV On the Radio - Wolf Like Me Cro-Mags - Hard Times The Replacements - Black Diamond Danzig - Soul On Fire Nas - Life's A Bitch Doug Hream Blunt - Gentile Persuasion Sheer Terror - Just Can't...
  • Wolf Built Bikes (No Relation)

    Posted April 14 2012

    Yesterday we mentioned Redeem in DC because they are one of our favorite boutiques who happen to carry Wolf Vs Goat. Wolves are pack animals and inside of Redeem's four walls there's another wolf running with us. This beautiful bike is built by hand by designer Brad Wolf under the moniker Wolf Built. Each bike is built to the rider's specs so the combinations are endless. The overall look fits well within our preferred aesthetic and it's hard for us to not think about getting our own bikes made with Spring and Summer coming around the corner. You can contact...
  • What's Wrong With Being A Garanimal?

    Posted April 14 2012

    Our new hunting jacket with coordinating sweat knickers are a match made in heaven. If you try to tell any of us here there is something wrong with this fit, you will get the stink eye. It's a great look for those milder winter days that we have had here in the DMV. Both are constructed from our lovely named fabric (check your care tags if you want to know its name). If you are going to be a Garanimal (a typically pajoritive term for an adult who dresses too "matchy - matchy"), keep the rest of the fit consistent,...
  • Banned In D.C.

    Posted April 14 2012

      If there is one common sonic thread that connects us here, it is our shared love for Bad Brains. They represented then and still to this day, the same mentality and values that's drive us everyday. We love their catalog of songs but this in particular is a great video for a great song so we thought it'd be great to share our appreciation of them with you. Here's to doing your own thing no matter who or how many tell you otherwise.
  • The White Wave

    Posted April 13 2012

    We love Hollywood weekend blockbusters as much as anyone else around. We really get into good film though and the Gansel’s “The Wave” is a great example of that. Based on the novel by Todd Strasser the story center’s around the idea of the ease of establishing autocratic control within the confines of a High School classroom that ultimately spills out beyond those walls. It gets pretty heavy and definitely gives the viewer a lot to think about. Highly recommended. One of the ways teacher Rainer Wenger (played by Jurgen Vogel) establishes control is by instructing a uniform of a white button-down...
