Style - Don't worry, be Happy - Dress like Pharrell Williams April 08 2014, 0 Comments
Pharrell Williams have always been the epitome of style.
Ever since his N.E.R.D days and this stylish rapper is always associated with all things cool.
With his Happy music video trending so rapidly, Pharrell has once again made history and strengthened him as the king of swag.
We know we can't come close to being this dude, but hey, at least we can try, can't we?
So here goes.
4 looks that actually comes close.
1. Casual Day
2. Party time
3. Not so formal
4. Licensed to thrill
That's all folks, 4 styles that get you closer to Pharrell, (if that is what you want to do..)
I know, we did contemplate adding this infamous hat into the style guide, but ah well, I believe that some styles, only Pharrell, and Pharrell only, will be able to pull off.
Take a look at this and you will know what I mean.

Rock out at ZoukOut! December 07 2013, 0 Comments
Definitely one of the most anticipated event of the year, ZoukOut is possibly the best way to wind down after a year of hard work. Well, even if you have been slacking, it is still the best party, hands down.
Most of the guys I know have been hitting the gym so that they would have all the legit reasons to show some buff, but for those who haven't, or don't really care, here are some fashion styles that can let you get away without going topless.
It's pretty much a Tees / Shirts + Berms + Flip Flops affair.
Mix them up yo
1. Tee + Berms + Flip Flops
2. Shirt + Berms + Flip Flops
3. Tee + Shirt + Berms + Flip Flops
Shy, buffed guys can use the shirt as a teaser, if you know what I mean.
Tip 1. Our shirt sleeves run a lil tight. Big biceps or small biceps, will look big in these bad boys.
Here are the selection!
Sail White Tee Shirt
Get onto the beach vibes with this one. Vision yourself holding a shot glass standing by the beach looking towards the moving vessel across the Sentosa straits.
To make sure you get all the attention without doing the talking, SWAG up with this tee. Good lookers get admired, the average looking, you still get credit for being #bold
Anchors have been all the rage this 2013, and much as we love to hate this nautical trend, it seems here to stay till 2014. So the creativity doesn't stop here.
Yolanda Haiyan Relief Tee
When you are having fun, don't forget to do your part for donation relief for the Haiyan victims. The Flesh Imp team would be rocking this at Zoukout.
Monogrammed Shirts are simple, stylish and easy to match. Refer to the various combos available to keep them buttoned / unbottoned.
Get into the tourist mode with Ballard and see what happens if you switch to a pseudo foreign accent.
What's a beach party without Bailey's? Both the drink and the bermudas here are gonna make you navigate like a beach party pro at ZoukOut! Go for it. You know you want it.
They say, go loud or go home. I say just do it.
This one. Conversation piece / Chick Magnet
For the mellow fellow, this one will keep you looking fine and prepped while you feast your eyes on the eye candy at the party.
For Flip Flop ideas, take no further look that these guys!
Have a great ZoukOut guys!
See ya there!
4 Styles to Rock this X'mas! December 04 2013, 0 Comments
It's X'mas and we are all ready to hit the party.
The worse thing is to see someone rockin the same gear as you, while you gotta do the hide and seek.
So here are some style guides for 4 different scenarios for you guys
1. X'mas Brunch by the berth
Cliche as it is, this Tee can't get any less nautical and 'yachty' so if you are at one degree 15, this will definitely give you some real swag.
We were torn between going full nautical with the Bailey Berms but decided that it will be overkill, so we opted for this one instead.
Slip on a pair of loafers and you are good to go.
2. Tis the Tea Time
Teatime is always a little tricky cos, it's neither formal nor casual for some. You could always overdress for tea if you are at the local kopitiam, but end up equally underdressed at The Royal Copenhagen. for all we know, Cooper here will make sure you don't lose any of that style.
Pairing with a simple yet detailed bermudas should give you an all round vibe without looking like a sore thumb, or mistaken for the server.
3. Turkey Dinner
Damien Shirt - Online Exclusive
Fresh off the block, Damien shirt is a good mix of heavy cotton at the front and oxford all around. Smart and preppy for any dinners, yet casual enough to fit a stylish house party you might have after.
As usual, our classic pants with specially placed details give a tinge of bespoke, and cuffing them up just so slightly creates a true gentleman look.
Berowne Blue Shoes
Chunky sole with a mis-matched loafer upper gives that clashed style which turns out pretty good too.
4. It's X'mas Party!
Floral is the key trend this season and we should see more of these in 2014, so be seen as the trendsetter this X'mas!
Go full on swag with Venetia as the colors go cray cray with it. Be scene!
Forget those hashtags! BE the hashtag!
Simple and classic with the ampulet flap in floral adding a touch of cheekiness.
Army Green Foot Wear
Relive the army days with this boot clunk of a dress shoe. Tread with caution in the urban jungle, but fret not when you are on the dance floor!
So there we have it.
4 styles for X'mas and you are ready to turn heads and break necks
Merry X'mas Yall!
5 Hottest Scores Right Now November 13 2013, 0 Comments
YES! The hottest score right now gotta be Badgalriri.
Sorry we digress.
We're supposed to be talking about the hottest fashion score right now but 'the hottest score' just led us into drooling about Riri. Other than the Barbadian hottie, also on our hottest score list is.....
OKAY. Back to the topic.
Here are the latest ready-to-wear trends for FALL/WINTER13 that you might wanna pick up.
Of course we're giving you recommendations with our FLMP pieces.
Of course, we've got some awesome new bombers that have already dropped at our Flesh Imp Scape Store.
You might also like our new Parka.
With the weather these days as confused as Mile Cyrus, you can be sure our latest serious of Outerwear will cover your back.
Just when you think we got them all, here's a surprise find on the list.
Hands down this gotta be the top favorite in our list.
These ones are reversible so you can match different outfits:
Grey has to be the hottest color of Fall/Winter and especially grey on grey.
The trick to keeping up with the latest trend this season is to layer up the greys with other greys.
Try layering grey tee with a jacket in a darker shade of grey.
Our definite color choice and the hue that we're cool in since we were a kid. For our new collection we added a new twist to our usual blue shirts. Using variations of prints, we hype up our shirts with bits and pieces. Less is always more.
We're lovin' and creatin' awesome pieces with one of the latest trend - styled prints. Essential for our climate and a comfy everyday wear, we spruced up our FLMP berms with styled patterns in different ways.
Well you guys (and girls) already know this. Must-have.
Okay we gotta add this irrelevant hottest score inside. Lighten up and enjoy a little laugh. This sh*t never fails to crack me up. If you like them, I have some asian version ones too. Wahhaha.
Comment below to tell us what you like and what apparels or accessories you'd like to see on Flesh Imp!
Payday Mayday! October 31 2013, 0 Comments
We know how it goes.
It's payday and before you know it, it's all gone by the first week.
So if you absolutely have to buy some clothes this November, we pick out some a countdown list of must-haves from our latest collection!
5. Dexon Pants
Fresh off the ports, our latest pants is now upgraded to premium material and awesome hand-feel. And always with the best detailing.
4. Revert Navy Jacket
Yes, I got that right. It's Navy AND Floral.
We threw up some nice florals, and then thought it would be awesome if we could use the same jacket for a more serious occasion and we mucked around the fabric mill to come up with a reversible one.
Wear it as a floral at night and turn it out into a serious jacket in the morning!
Comes in Navy and Green.
3. Bailey Bermudas
2. Leopard Tee
Forget leopard prints ( or preenz, like how our Ris Low says it), let's maul a real one and get it imprinted onto the Tee Shirt!
A new addition to our Flesh Imp Tees, the digital graphic range is all about re-creating pixel perfect designs onto clothing.
If you haven't got any of these Givenchy-inspired pieces yet.
and our number one, which is of course, the very limited edition Flesh Imp X LIMPEH collaboration in celebration of our boy Shigga Shay hitting the itunes chart with the witty rap LIMPEH.
You can check the limited edition collection here.
A limited edition Lookbook with CD mixtape will come with the boxset and we will be giving away some SIGNED mixtapes to some lucky contest winners!
and here they are in person doing the covert signing session!
And me and Vincent doing our best LIMPEH look with the boys.
Staff Picks! October 18 2013, 0 Comments
This season we see tons of exciting new arrivals and when the stocks came in, everyone from the office to the store were stoked and we got them to pick out their favourite.
It might be your favourite too!
Needless to say, Zero being the swag dawg as he is, the LIMPEH vibe is definitely very him!
' I can finally say ' I am Limpeh ' and turn my back proud! - Zero
Cute as she is, Sara has a style between preppy geek and stylish freak. But we all know it just takes a pair of nerdy peepers to make her look like one. Nonetheless, she still wants to make sure that everyone knows with this tank.
' I could share it with my boyfriend, you see...' - Sara
I just want to give this a shot. Period
Vincent is known to wear stylish shirts, and this one is one good fit. Especially when he has it customised to fit his tall frame.
' Been wanting to get my hands on this one ever since I got hold of this unique fabric during the conceptualisation process' - Vincent Q
So there you have it!
Staff picks for you.
What about yours?
Looking Good Without Busting The Bank October 08 2013, 0 Comments
The other day I was at the store and some customers told me it was getting pretty hard to assemble a decent set up looking good without busting the bank.

So we decided to go for a few options.
1. Full get up Cap, Top and Bottom @ $100

And surprisingly, here's what we got!

1. The Aventurer Black Bagpack
We heard you and we know how a bagpack makes the difference between a geek and a hacker so we tore apart that functional (read : boring) laptop bag and threw in large portions of style, faux leather and attitude to give you Aventurer. We know you know that this will kill it even if you are a true blue geek. Cop this here
This is one classic piece that never fails to make a grand entrance to your perfect ensemble.
Switch between casual and smart upon demand, our Flesh Imp Fabric belt looks good both with Shirts and Tees, tucked in and let loose. It stays the way you want it, especially with a wide array of colors. This particular one is my top fave.
One flick of the shirt, and I am on the way to the beach!
Speaking of the beach, the weather's been a killer lately over here in Singapore, and what's better than a cool tank to hit the waves. While I am not known to be an avid swimmer, it's always fun in the sun hitting up some beers, and lap pool chilling. All that with whole lotta style to go too.
It's been awhile since I have donned some camouflage, but lately, it gets kinda nostalgic, especially with all that National Spirit going on. But hey, any excuse to wear some cool camo right? So here is that snow camo pattern that I have been craving for.
5. Nesh Shirt
Well you know we have been dropping quite a bit of shirts lately and a good mix both long and short sleeves. This one is definitely a head turner. A touch of simplicity added with a tri-color tape running across the chest, creating an air of sophistication without the glaring contrast.
Now that you have some ideas, I hope the 20% off will make it easier for your top 5 choices.

The Top 5 Essentials in your Wardrobe July 27 2012, 0 Comments
We are guys. Our clothes are strewn all over the floor in our room. A wardrobe you say? Oh wait, so that’s what the huge, hollow compartment is! I thought it was just another storeroom for more junk.
Yes, a wardrobe is where one hangs their clothes and keeps clean laundry, not a decade of MacDonald’s cartons, or that shirt you wore when you first visited Fun Dazzle (that colourful indoor playground has sadly, closed down for good. Pity.). Start gathering the clothes on your floor and clean out that closet of yours! Time to introduce fresh new pieces of clothing and bid farewell to has-beens!
Having an ample number of styles in your wardrobe is vital. It gives you more leeway in coming up with different ways in creating a casual wear, to a preppy approach. For me, I enjoy having an array of patterned T-shirts, or printed ones. One can never have too many T-shirts!
Here are my top 5 MUST-HAVES in the wardrobe!
1. Printed/Patterned T-shirts
• Digital Aztec prints
• Artistic designs
T-shirts with a quirky twist to the plain background, they rock a simple ensemble in a snap! A minimalistic design on the shirt beats a basic tee so why not? I like mine to have intricate patterns with a mix of dull and bold colors, which spruce up my daily pairings of pants and Bermudas.
2. Plaid shirts
Please don’t tie this with a farm boy image, or a hipster-wannabe. Open your mind and eyes to the 21st century, where nearly everyone and anyone dares to wear the wackiest and outrageous. Men these days are braver to wearing intricate patterns and bold colours, especially with the burst of plaid and tartan for Autumn/Fall.
You can wear plaid shirts with jeans for a casual approach. Roll up the sleeves for an added polished touch. I think any guy can pull off plaid, without looking like an escaped clown from the Russian circus. There are even plaid blazers and jackets to style in!
3. Basic T-shirts
• Crew neck
Other than novelty printed Tees, you should have a few basic Tees in your wardrobe. In the name of essentials and the convenience of what a simple plain Tee, the basics are versatile pieces in completing an ensemble.
4. Denim jeans
Denims are classic pieces, especially denim jeans. Fitted, regular rise, straight cuts and skinny jeans are a necessity in the wardrobe of men. You can play with the lengths of jeans by rolling them up mid0way at the calves for a casual style, like into a pair of 3/4s. There are even different styles of jeans like acid-wash, dark blue denims, distressed black, of the array of choices!
In this hot and humid weather, Bermudas are a MUST. These 3/4s length bottoms are a savior during the blistering heat.
The classic style of Printed Tees July 26 2012, 0 Comments
I love printed t-shirts. Aztec patterns, geometric designs, novelty prints, any of them on a shirt, the characteristics of them can last us to infinity and beyond (I kid you not). There is something distinguished about a printed t-shirt, like how versatile a piece can be styled with, or the design reflects your personality or takes on life. Either way, printed t-shirts are very much a staple in every man’s wardrobe. If a single tone of colour doesn’t complement your taste in clothing, printed t-shirts can take the place of vibrancy.

Date Night! June 21 2012, 0 Comments
Your crush pulls a Carly Rae Jepsen on you and tells you to call her, maybe for a date?
We’re positively sure you won’t decline her offer and in the moment of wonderment, you snap at the thought of your wardrobe.
“What am I going to wear and give a decent impression to the girl?”
Fear not! We’ve got you covered in that department.
“Clothing is the outward expression of the inner person” as renowned Italian designer Giorgio Armani once said. The clothes on your back are what you will communicate to your date on the experience she’s in for. We understand behaviour is the dictation of how your (romantic) evening will go, but showing up in a poor fitting shirt which makes you look like you borrowed the wardrobe of Cee-Lo Green, or wearing a pair of jeans two sizes too small that cramps your legs up (which results in cutting off all blood supply to your feet) would send your date soaking up her pillow at night with tears on why she agreed on going out with you in the first place.
With that in mind, We assure you these tips will get you the girl of your dreams, and too help that your sense of fashion does not equate to Justin Bieber’s style (he has an issue with fitting jeans and wears them 3 sizes too big that it snug nicely, below his butt cheeks).
What should you wear?
A good, fine cut shirt would do the job if you’re indecisive over the prints on T-shirts, or if throwing a vest over your Tee would make you look like a geek (oh girls love the Joseph Gordon-Levitt style by the way). You can button up for a formal appearance, or throw it over a T-shirt for a causal look.
For the love of fashion and looking good, always make absolute sure that your shirts and clean and free from stains. You don’t want to wear a shirt with a 1 month-old ketchup stain on the sleeve, or an unsightly grass stain lingering on the back of your shirt. Have the shirt to be wrinkle-free for an impressionable appearance.
No, we permit you to wear Bermuda shorts on your first date! Save them for subsequent dates when everything is going smoothly and she’s already comfortable with your presence.
Jeans and dress pants, both are excellent choices for presentable bottoms. We would choose dress pants over a pair of jeans as pants are more, professional. Either way, both are appropriate for a first date. Remember to wear them in a perfect fit and length! You would want to feel comfortable throughout the date, and not constantly pull up your pants or tug at your jeans.
That’s just fugly.
Shoes are a no brainer. Just don’t wear a pair of Crocs with socks, or those Havaianas slippers (so what if they cost freaking $50 a pair?) Slippers worn with pants and a shirt would land you in the canal, beaten up. No wait, that’s for Crocs with socks. Either way, you’ll loose the girl, and your friends.
We would go with a pair of wing-tip brogues. Brogues are smart and presentable, or boat shoes! Those are formal-casual which is apt for you if you don’t want to look too formal.
Dos & Don’ts
We’re no Dr. Phil or Oprah Winfrey in giving the best advices about dating, but here are some points to take note (based on experiences and opinions):
1. DO keep the conversation going with your date and have substantial amount of topics/stories to share.
2. DON’T adjust your shirt or pants in front of your date. It only goes to show that you’re nervous (and she may feel the same too) and uncomfortable. Be confident and smart!
3. DO make sure you’re clean from head to toe; clothes are crisped from ironing and wrinkle-free.
4. DON’T over-spray your cologne. You don’t want China to know what scent you’re wearing. Use 1- 2 sprays on the neck/collar of the shirt and you’re good!
5. DO keep eye contact while speaking to your date. She isn’t on the ceiling or on the floor. Look right at her to show interest and smile!

Flesh Imp Feature Product: Tribal prints T-Shirt June 14 2012, 0 Comments
First thought about Tribal prints: were they really inspired by red Indians who locate in a godforsaken, remote jungle?
Rhetorical question, but I will elaborate on why Tribal prints is a fashion statement, and how you can style them. I understand the simplicity of men’s clothing being only T-shirt and Bermudas or jeans; however you do not want to channel the inner clown in your fashion sense. Tribal prints for males come in either prints or weaves so it’s child’s play in pairing them with your wardrobe staples. Read on a little more to find out how our Tribal prints can spruce up that boring set of plain tees in your wardrobe!
Do not overdo the tribal prints to a large extend when you could be mistaken to be a lost Red Indian from an undiscovered tribe. Pair tribal prints with solid colours, be it on your t-shirt or denims, but make sure they stand out in your outfit. It is imperative to wear them moderately.
Casual is definitely the way to go in donning this ethnic fashion. The look of both Indian motifs and Ikat prints works best through bottoms and shirts, and to the most extreme end, albeit the weather in Singapore is an outcry, outerwear like sweaters or cardigans. Tribal prints are always a statement and any one can instantly feel comfortable in them.
Our Tribal T-shirts are amazingly designed, that features the prints to almost a digital pattern, which mashes the past and present to conclude a compose style. The T-shirts come in three colours with different tribal prints to choose from! You won’t go wrong with any of our designed Tees as they complement almost any wear! Of course, please don’t tarnish the label by pulling a Moscow Circus theme. That is a mortal sin to commit in the Fashion industry.

This season, it's all about the craze for python prints, checks, scarves and mesh!
Let the pictures do the talking as they inspire you..
All I can say is that Snake skin is the new leopard print!
Fashion labels are bringing forth snakeskin prints this season.
Such bold prints gives off a masculine appeal.

Predominantly a female accessory.. but who says we men can't look better in it?
Scarves for men adds an elegance to our wardrobe.
And it's no problem if you want to look masculine and rugged in it too.

The first thought of men in mesh gave me a really horrid image in my head..
But after seeing runways of male models strutting in them, it does kind of look funky.

Shirt I, or Shirt I not? January 03 2012, 0 Comments
It's time to get all shirted up!
Remember our post on Oxfords? This time we went all inspired and decided to get creative with the fabrics and cuts to bring you something for the year of the dragon!
Full cotton denim stripes
Check out the Denim details
Great for a match with denim berms or even pants!
We know how boring it is to have either a full polka dotted shirt, or the usual pocket detail. So we went for the extra cut to change the fron chest panel to polka dots. As usual, the tailored collars remain.
One of the staff picks this collection, the Redspot has the makings of a trend setter.
Back gingham panels with sleeve fastener detail, complete with matching 'elbow patch' but in a more 'workwear' style. This brings the lumberjack in you, urban style!
Following the draft of Redspot, we made a full back panel so that this once utility wear gets a facelifted fashionable edge.
No prizes for guessing why we call this 'Yell'. Unlike to usual gingham checks of red and white (yes, that 'tablecloth' one), we gave it a new lease of life by getting crazy on our color palette.
Nice details prevails!
So, if you are still thinking of Shirt you, or Shirt you not, the answer is is 'Yes, you shirt!'
Do It Like a Dude! Wear It Like a Jacket! November 20 2011, 0 Comments
I am sure there are days you get so hyped up about some of the new clothes that you have just purchased, and absolutely can't wait to wear them ALL?
That happens to me ALL the time, but hey, you got only one head, one torso and two legs, so unless you have a co-joined twin, wearing 2 different tops or bottoms seem pretty much impossible eh?
But, yesterday we got inspired by someone at our store wearing our latest Oxford shirt like a Jacket and I thought ' This allows you to wear both at the SAME time!'
And so here we are, wearing it like a jacket!
First, we put on our latest Soft Feel Tee ' America' ($29) and slip on our pants Groom ($59).
Throw up that Shirt ' Blu' ($59) and we have a pretty preppy look for the weekend or party night out.
To add on some spice, we got a detail in the form of keychain 'Feather' ($19)
We looking good or what?

FLMP 2011 FEB/MAR updates! February 22 2011, 0 Comments
From the looks of it, we are gonna have a bunch of pretty nice looking photos for these coupla months, all thanks to Simon, our very talented intern!
We knew Simon had his eyes on this rad looking western-style shirt the moment he whipped it off the shipment.
Yes, we are quite sure that John Wayne would have done the same too.
here's more from the shoot to soothe your cravings from our Fine-Cut department.
You will notice a good mix of denim with flannel, combined with some nice cotton detailing throughout.
And at a good price of $55.00, it's obvious why they are always flying off the shelves.
Click here to see what's new.
Whether it's a day out at the beach or taming a bucking bronco at the rodeo in the arcade, maybe a chillaxing day by the pool, or just some serious partying at Zouk, Straw Hats have become a stylish way to cover those eyes and look a million bucks while you are at it.
Just like how Simon does it. :)
November Collection part 2 November 02 2010, 0 Comments
Part 2 is mainly our Flesh Imp range.
You will be stoked to find out that we have some pretty interesting shirts and pants for this season
Available in Green and Brown Corduroy
We experimented on this new material specially developed for this season where the weather gets all cool and nice. Throw on these for a casual day out at the beach or simply for a night out at the club.
Available in Blue and Dark Blue Denim
The current trend of Pants is sneaking up on us faster than we think and in this season of must-haves, so if you haven't, please add these on your checklist.
Our soft spot of fine details made us produce a pleated version, which we think is not too bad if you are going for that bespoke air without looking too frumpy. :)
Green, Khaki and Brown
With Carrot cut pants taking centre stage this season, it is our turn to let our interpretation to shine with this season.

Flesh Imp FW 2010 LookBook BTS October 26 2010, 0 Comments
The small crew consisting of our photographer Finn, makeup and hair specialist Danielle, merchandiser / stylist Von as well as Vincent and myself walked down the beaten path near the railway tracks to get some rare shots of the seldom-seen part of the island.
Doing up Rohan is easy peasy. Being good looking has its privileges!
This season, we have got a little something extra special for you.
Celebrating our 10 years, we are increasing the product range and doing a little update on our looks.
From urban street wear to Contemporary Street Wear, it is going to be a refreshing change for sure!
Check out Rohan's interpretation of our current collection and you will know what we mean
Turning on the accents of tranquility, the Flesh Imp FW 2010 LookBook is drawing on the substance of simplicity that created a perfect fusion of style and design. More on that when the LookBook is done.
For this shoot, we are experimenting with the Nokia N8 because we heard about its kickass 12 megapixel camera with HD function on both photo and video! (you could say we are tired of hauling a big ass DSLR on shoots!)
Like our veteran photog says, ' Wow, if this Nokia works, I will be using this from now on!
Well, it looks like that might just happen! (when it finally launches end of the month!)
And yes, as usual, the video edit will be out, hopefully within a week.
The shoot was done pretty quickly and we were on our way in under 3 hours!
Flesh Imp FW 2010 LookBook coming soon

In a heartbeat and we are hurtling towards the year of the Tiger.
We are on official countdown to Chinese New Year and yeap, just 14 days away!
It's a double happiness because the first day of CNY is also Valentine's Day, where all couples get lovey dovey.
As usual, we have lined up some fabulous winners this festive season so that you can go a-visiting looking like a million bucks!
Hang in there as this will be a 2-parter (possibly 3!) because it is a MASSIVE update! You will be spoilt for choice. Trust us! We made sure we got the best for you.
Let's start with the guys first this time.
Men's Tee are a must.
We know how you love acronyms and this season, we send you a little love in the form of FML.
For the uninitiated, this is what it means.

and in the Men's department.... January 08 2010, 0 Comments
And in the Men's Department, we have Ronald rocking the shoot for us.
It has been awhile since we last saw him. Used to hang out and ball with him and being one of the first generation of Flesh Imp Crew, it's always good to catch up once again.
Massive drops of Tees, which are mainly made up of photosque prints with hand screened process injected with inky hues of colors for that nu skool touch. Our Polos also make to the top of our list this season with checks, dots and stripes. You might notice the bright button details that we added, and also the slimmer fit.
We are totally loving the Shirts , (you gonna totally love them too!) as we pumped up the volume on the checks and tartans, and also added a short sleeve range for those who wanna do a get-go on those tattoos!
And of course the 4 newcomers in the Premium Denim section. There is no excuse now for saying we don't have what you want. Be it plain gleaming, we have Glitz, or even grey in the form of Joel, maybe you want a little fade in your black, we have Zero (not our designer) and of course, for the distressed fanatic, this is gonna make you jump.
Front Fade lines, aka 'Whiskers'
Pure Black Desire (complete with Waxed Finish Process)
These series of Premium Denim is by far one of the best that we have came up with(yet), and totally hand processed using premium 20 Oz Japanese ring spun Denim. It is also made in Japan! Yes, this time round we spared no expenses to bring you the best.
Even though we upped the ante on the production , it is still retailing at an affordable $73, so trust us when we tell you that this is one denim that totally kicks ass!
*UPDATE* We made it even SWEETER for you, guys!
These mofos are now going for an Introductory Price of $65.00!!
For some weird reason I can't seem to upload pictures on the blog so bear with us(and check out the various links instead) while WordPress sort its shit out.
