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.

The 5 Best Dressed Boxers Of All Time

Boxing & Fashion have always gone hand in hand. Back in the day, being the heavyweight champ of the world allowed you to kick it with the everyone from the Italian Mafia, to the President. During the Kennedy administration, you could hang with both at the same time. Being a pugilist meant something. North eastern boxing writer Mike Natalino has a theory – that boxers carried the weight of their people in their American tale, so they had to dress for that mantle. The Italian immigration wave saw Marciano and LaMotta rise to the top of the sport, no doubt propelled by the emotional pulse of their paisons. The civil rights era of the 50’s-70’s saw fighters like Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson, and countless other black men emerge and lift their people’s hearts. Hispanic fighters from the 70’s and 80’s like Roberto Duran carried the mantle for the latin population,…
