#Wandersetting : Rep Your City In These Geo-Proud Pieces.

Who doesn’t like representing where they’re from?  As 90’s throwback becomes mod even more so in 2018, these fire drops from various lines on Wanderset are ideally on trend, and allow the wearer to rep from The A to The Bean. NEW YORK: RCNSTRCT 90’s “NY YANKEES PRO PLAYER” DUGOUT JACKET We all had these in elementary school. Well, those jerks that were lucky 90’s Yanks fans.

BOSTON: SQONDER 90’s “BOSTON BIRD” VINTAGE T If you’re from New England, you know Bird was the first Brady in the north east. Rep for one of the NBA’s all time gods, and put on for the C’s.

They even recently started dropping ” CNC Tykes” – apparel for the younger Crook who seeks a Castle in his class room. 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. PINK RACE TYKES YOUTH CREWNECK That salmon-pink color is always rad, and in “tykes” form, complete with yacht club flash tat style symbolism, and a double-needle stitched neckline and sleeves, the damn kid will be the talk of the town. Flex, kid, flex. 3. C&C TYKES KNIFE T  Who knew a switchblade was for the kids?…

Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous, Or Broke & 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…

This Is War. Here’s The Best Pieces From L.A’s ZANEROBE Camo Capsule.

Camo has become the go to pattern for 2017. From BAPE’s Summer “Tiger Camo” motif, to the overplayed hand of “Desert Storm” and “Hoth Ice Camo” seen on everything from dollar store snap backs to Euro-Luxe scarves well above a sane entry price point, it’s everywhere. L.A. street mod line ZANEROBE stuck to the roots. They forwent the crazy color ways and stuck to the ballsy original. In the city of flashing lights and loud noises, the dimly lit pub with classic is the only cornerstone. Same shit here. There’s some outside of the traditional camo pieces from ‘Robe that would fit the aforementioned alternatives, but for this, and they’re done very well, for sure. We just chose to put you up on the illest of the traditional. 1. CAMO SURESHOT JOGGER Slouchy, stretch-cotton joggers in a classic camo exude urban, lounge-ready attitude and comfort thanks to the fit-right…

Kill It At This Fall’s Wine + Cheese Party. The Definitive Style Guide For A Rad Ass Gent.

A huge aspect of developing into a grown ass man is the social. There’s no way around it. One day, your mom just stops getting calls from like, the other moms about so-and-so’s 10th birthday pizza party, and we start getting sleek little invites on foiled card stock to events at vineyards, venues and social clubs with swankier zip codes. These things go two ways. Way 1: They’re a nightmare. It’s either elitist in the “one percent” way, or the trust-fund-kids-with-beards way, and for most of us, it’s southbound and down like Kenny Powers from the jump. We can’t compete with the small talk flexing, nor do we care about stocks, prep school lacrosse, charity gallery shows, or the cold brew coffee infused craft beer that the guy who somehow looks like fucking Halsey is raving about. Way 1 can be humbling in the worst form. Way 2: Co-worker stiffs in…

FairPlay is a Los Angeles based brand, inspired by the functionality of athletic gear while adding a touch of character with intricate sport design. While the line has it’s roots in sport, it also has it’s literal roots in the city of LA. If you’ve ever been to the City Of Angels, you know it’s dusks and sunsets, gently sliding behind the art deco neon and rising smog, are as much a part of the fabric of the city as the Dodgers, Hollywood, Skid Row and Gene Kelly’s musicals. Here’s 5 awesome pieces from FAIRPLAY that use the LA Dusk as a pallet, an inspiration, and actual fabric from the city. This one is for the coast. 5. DREXEL BOMBER This stellar jacket is burnt orange, features beautifully ribbed cuffs and bottom waste line, and 100% Poly-woven. 4. DMITRI ORANGE FLANNEL  For the rare nights in SoCal where the…

SURF IS DEAD. And Not Even “Eddie Would Go” To The Wake.

SURF IS DEAD is a Los Angeles-based label that was created on the broken back of the dying surfing culture. You see, PacSun and all those other lei flowers motif and reclaimed wood mall based “skate and surf” lifestyle stores strangled it. It’s like seeing a Zoo York hoodie at Marshals and calling the whole joint a “streetwear boutique”. Surf clothing brands reinterpret old surf motifs in a modern way while letting the corporate surf culture sink by weight of their own greed. And it’s fucking rad.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_zOvmz6jNU SID has embraced the early 80’s arcade meets DIY left coast aesthetic, where punk rock, lewd visuals, neon decals, reggie ganja, and boardwalk kitch all met to hang ten. We at Wanderset applaud the rebels, the bird flippers, and the ones that defy the norm, repel the grain, and stick to the roots and guns in the face of opposition. Kelly Slater…
