We love this … The Lone Wolfs (sic) surf shop on Lincoln Boulevard in Venice, in Los Angeles, was recently robbed. The perpetrators smashed one of the shop’s glass doors. The Lone Wolfs responded with this witty, spray-painted message on the plywood they put up to cover the broken door: “Can’t steal our vibe.”

We’re fans of Saturdays, the cafe-surf shop and clothing brand inspired by the surfing lifestyle. Its original flagship store is on Crosby Street in SoHo, where we recently paid a visit to pick up a gift during the recent holidays. We found some awesome new hoodie and hat designs (pictured below) and scooped up a floral-print flat cap and “Ditch Plains” hoodie with “SATURDAYS” serif-font logotype design.
Eventually every favorite old shirt reaches a point of wear and tear that signals it’s time to throw it out. Such was this case this past week with this light pink “Pop Classics” t-shirt by Swedish clothing brand Acne Studios, pictured below. We had been wearing the tee regularly ever since we purchased it at the Opening Ceremony store in Los Angeles 4 1/2 years ago. The shirt had finally developed one hole too many.
We’re big fans of Acne’s clothing and we’re sad to see this shirt go as it was the most comfortable, well-fitting and perfectly designed t-shirt we’ve owned. That says a lot given that the t-shirt, as global wardrobe staple and ubiquitous fashion commodity, is one of the most mass-produced items on the planet. One would think it would by now be difficult to improve upon. But this t-shirt had.
