Lifestyles Of The Broke and Dangerous. CROOKS & CASTLES Is Back.

Crooks and Castles was started in the mean streets of Los Angeles in the early 2000’s. 2002 to be exact, and that makes them somewhat of an OG heritage narrative as far as the Methylphenidate fueled conveyor belt of street wear is concerned. All hail the return of the great man in the castle, we say. Napoleon has returned from his castoff island. The once championed street kings, who were the toast of Mac Miller, Diddy, Ceelo, Drake, and assorted sponsored skateboarders everywhere have reemerged with the new year’s vigor. You should have kept their seat at the cool kids lunch table warm, O ye of little faith. C&C was one of the first streetwear lines to consciously embrace a narrative and soul, a story in every capsule, and create from a place that was equal parts street and polish. In fact, founders Dennis Calvero and Rob Panlilio issued this statement on…

Welcome To NORWOOD CHAPTERS: The Exclusive Ali Saint Q Interview.

Ali Saint Q is en route to becoming the guy Dos XX should cast as the next “Most Interesting Man In The World”. His line, Norwood Chapters, is the insiders hottest ticket. The way every rappers favorite rapper is secretly Royce Da 5’9, is the way Norwood is positioned for those in the streetwear bubble. Norwood first got noticed for using the Ikea bag in the most sartorial ways possible. Then, other big dogs jacked the concept. But the cool thing about the internet is that it comes with time stamps on posts. Anyone can say what they want, my man Ali did it first. First matters. Ali and I spoke on the phone for damn near an hour the first time we talked. It wasn’t an interview, it was a barbershop culture talk. I grew up in the north east, and he in So Cal, but we spoke an…

Top 5 Amazing Vintage Pieces From Marko The Curator

Rumble In Your Jungle With Australian Label JUNGLES JUNGLES

The term “Jungle” is one of those terms that can be implied or attached to a great many others. It serves as a prefix, suffix, or scene setter, and besides for vacations or trips the zoo, it very rarely means what Webster claims it does. Every city seems to have a jungle of it’s own. Even nations where ecosystem’s cant sustain one. Shit, the neighborhood that you can find the historic Union Station in New Haven CT is called “The Jungle”. And in December in The Jungle, it’s about 30 degrees. That right there is an environmental anomaly. No one has ever said ” It’s colder than a fucking jungle in here .”  Hell, it’s even a subgenre of house music. In this case, it’s an introduction, and a lifestyle. Oh yeah, and a clothing line that immigrated to the states and landed on Wanderset. Australian label Jungles Jungles describes…

How to flex on everyone at ART BASEL.

Art Basel is upon us, and all the Picasso Babies are descending on South Beach for the world’s biggest culture event. Along with the art, the obvious cornerstone and reason for Basel being, the fashion is a very, very close second. The event is populated by those who believe themselves to be a living canvas, with a rather wide range and scope. From Euro luxury to the more outlandish and rebellious, there is no “Basel Look” per se, but an ideal, or ideology. It is with these principals, themes, and motifs in mind that we curated an ideal outfit composite that reflects the spirit and energy of Basel – featuring some of the best designers and brands on The Set. Here it is. Top down. The Hat: DETACHE LABS CIVET 360  The wide brim Fedora is by far the most fitting for the city, season, and energy. The…

Martavis Bryant Designs His Own Play Action Routes. And Clothes.

The Steelers are having a hell of a year. Right now, they sit firmly atop the AFC North, with the only red letter day on the schedule coming the 17th of this months against the rival Patriots. That will most likely decide the 1 seed in the AFC. A huge part of that is the “Killer B’s” – Pittsburg’s new regime that has replaced the old school, defense first, blue collar ground and pound 70’s “Steel Curtain” moniker. Ben (Rothelesberger- QB) Brown (Antonio- WR) Bell (Le’Veon Bell) and Bryant (Martavis-WR). The Steelers are flying high, and in no small part, is that due to the young man who lines up out wide, the last of the B’s, our man Martavis Bryant. Bryant hails from a sleepy southern town of under 2000 people that has only one stop light.  His high school shut down after his sophomore season and he was…

We Hung With NBA Star Draymond Green At Del Toro’s Pop Up in NYC.

Every part of New York City is a labyrinth that is not only it’s own grid on an actual map, but it’s own world inside a world. For long as I’ve spent in The City, I am still discovering new versions of it. Tonight, I was going to see my city through the lens of one of my favorite brands in a whole new way. This is Del Toro’s NYC. If you’re not from here, you probably think all of NYC is Times Square, or more recently, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Where dudes on unicycles host Mumford & Sons look-a-like contests at conflict free coffee joints the way Nathan’s hosts hotdog eating contests. There’s far more in The Big Apple than that. The Village, SoHo, NoHo, The Bowery, St. Mark’s Place, Lower East Side, Hell’s Kitchen, Chelsea – these are the parts that had my heart from a young age. There’s a…

God Save REPRESENT. The George Heaton Interview.

George and his brother Michael Heaton, from Manchester, UK – are flying the Union Jack much higher than most lately. Their brand, REPRESENT, is coming to Wanderset, and the line has gone from street wear t shirts, to full fledged fashion house that uses Brit iconography to craft a brilliant narrative that is just as much trap-punk as it is Victorian. I spoke with George to dive a bit deeper into the story behind Represent. I wanted to find out what made him tick, and where the inspiration and creativity sparked from. As a creative, inspiration is never ending and can stem from anywhere, and that to be, is the most interesting part. As far as culture goes, I childishly wanted to know what the coolest shit from across the pond that we may not even know about here in Trump’s Wonka Factory. Before the Brit’s get a hearty…
