Ben Lyons NBA All Star Game Selects

Saying Ben Lyons balls bi-coastally is an understatement. He was born and raised in the City-That-Never-Sleeps and now resides full-time to the City-That-Chills-The-Most. Los Angeles’ amazing weather, legalized pot and competitive sushi lunch culture don’t hurt its chill factor. Currently, he splits lanes between hosting a weekly show for NBA-TV / Twitter Sports called THE WARMUP, his on-air duties at ESPN-Los Angeles, and being a producer and contributor to FRANCHISE Magazine. He also hosts “Oscars All Access”, the Emmy Award-winning official live stream coverage of The Academy Awards. Somewhere in that vortex of sports and entertainment, Ben finds time for his own projects and was recently named Chief Correspondent of Derek Jeter’s new platform the Players’ Tribune. Ben’s New York roots run deep. His grandfather was legendary NY Post columnist Leonard Lyons, and his old man is Jeffery Lyons, one of the most respected film and theater critics alive. Ben’s…

America F*ck Yeah! Olympic Hockey Looks Available on Wanderset

The Pyeongchang Olympic Games kicked off Friday night in South Korea. You know, the Korea that doesn’t require a Trypophobia trigger warning for its 230-person-deep cheerleading squad.  Sadly, this year’s competition is missing two monster ticket sellers: The triumphant return of Tonya Harding. NHL players for the puck portion. Great job, NHL. Games that barely matter in the dead of winter somehow smite honor, glory and gold? The men’s ice hockey tournament runs from for ten days starting February 15th, yet there’s no Crosby, McDavid, Ovie or Doughty. This is the tournament of no-names. Yet there’s something intriguing about the fact that without superstars and bigger ice, it’s still hockey. It’s still just solid pucks, checks, and wristers from the blue line. Depending on how your team fares in the group stage and into the KO rounds, that could mean a maximum of seven games played during the Olympic span. That’s a lot of hockey. In honor of this, we curated the best attire for whatever rink,…

Dress To The 10s : The Modern Loverboy

Valentine’s Day is coming up. You have a cultural obligation to not shit the bed with the human you date. That means do the right thing like Spike Lee. That doesn’t mean your date wants to go to a Knicks game (the Knicks players don’t even want to go to a Knicks game). What it means is that whether you have that obligatory work dinner or something more adventurous on the docket (a swinger’s party? beret-laden poetry slam in which you “sample” chocolate stouts until you pass out? whatever kind of crazy you are, get it) your gear matters. Don’t give your girl an opportunity to roast you in the group text. Again we say… THE GEAR MATTERS. There’s several directions one can go. If you’re doing the swank cocktail thing in some dimly lit, low-pass-filter-looking neon-adorned grotto, we suggest the street luxe thing. Black moto skinnies from brands like Represent Clo, and anything Gucci Ghost re-imagined is the wave. Less is…

PARIS FASHION WEEK : 2018 Emerging Style’s Look Book

In 1945 the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture established another set of rules to regulate and determine Haute Couture houses. In order to meet the criteria, the house had to ensure they followed the updated rules with one of them being that in each season, a couture house must present a collection of at least 35 runs with both daytime and evening wear to the Paris press. Others included having at least 20 members on staff, and that every design must include fittings and be made-to-order for the clientele. The following biannual events of Haute Couture houses in accordance with the new guidelines set by the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture have been seen as the first pair of fashion weeks in Paris. Some 30 years later, PARIS FASHION WEEK was officially born. The first recognized Paris Fashion Week was held in 1973 and organized Haute Couture, Ready-to-Wear, and Men’s Fashion…

Top 5 Tops from the New CROOKS & CASTLES Drop

Crooks is back. We at Wanderset are super excited about the fact that OG street wear leaders Crooks & Castles are now a part of the Set. It’s official, LA is the street wear king of 2017-18. For Those Who Sin and Mr. Completely have carried the mantle of that, in many ways, was started by CNC. Here’s 5 essentials tops from the CNC House for this season. They even recently started dropping “CNC Tykes”;  apparel for the younger Crook who seeks a Castle in his class room. School clothes for me used to be from Ames. Kids are lucky now. Crooks has reemerged with a vengeance this past year. Scroll down for the play CNC drew up. 5. CNC RED X ROYAL WINGS LS CREWNECK  Right on target for this era, the sleeve art sells the Atlanta Hawks looking logo even better. Everyone needs wings, bro. 4.…

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…

INBOARD’s E-Skateboards Will Turn You Into Marty McFly.

I wanted to be Marty McFly as a kid, and if you say you didn’t, you’re a lying sack of dogshit. The way he zipped around Hill Valley, California on that hover/skate/e-whatever board in the future, after inadvertently inventing the original skateboard in the mid 50’s long before Dogtown and Stacy Peralta thought about rail slides. Between the ultimate cool that was a young Michael J. – and Supreme and CCS, and The Roots and WuTang, and Sublime and no parents after school, I fell in love with real skateboarding but I never forgot the possibilities presented to be in Back To The Future. Sure, some asshole in Dubai claims to have a actual flying device like every 3 weeks on World Star. The only hover boards I’ve been on are the ones the kiosk lads at the mall sell. You know the kind, the ones that caught on fire…

Wanderset’s COMPLEXCON Invasion 17 Recap

The Insanity that was COMPLEXCON 17 has been recapped. It’s around mid-afternoon in West Hollywood right now, and it’s finally quiet. It’s finally much, much calmer. Off the balcony, I can hear the low panned din below of the Sunset Strip, dipping into the weight of it’s own peaks and valleys, in underwater Dolby surround sound. The last weekend just kicked the shit out of (Wanderset Art Director) Drew McCarver and I. But the internet never sleeps. Some cat flew back to Seoul and already uploaded some trill ass images of his cops from ComplexCon 17, and now, we have to run thru miles of content, flicks, clips, and all types of names and numbers to piece together this hot mess neon maze that was more Wonka Factory than shopping experience. We copped a bunch of exclusives only available at the event, and now, only available on Wanderset. They’re one…
