There’s a new kid on the block in the fitted world: Lacer Headwear. Bringing a new level of originality and customizability into a crowded market, they’ve made the unusual move to combine sneakers and caps… And it works. These aren’t knock-off 59Fiftys either; they’re focusing on creating products of only the highest quality. Their first releases will be a Solid Series and a Hoops Series, with colorways from 13 different NBA teams and a few all-color styles to choose from. You’ll be able to match your Lacer to suit your own styles and interests as well, through a series of special lace locks that you’ll be able to purchase on the side. Lacer hats will be dropping this spring; get more info and keep an eye out for updates at Lacer Headwear.
It can be tough to find a simple, good looking bag that isn’t too expensive. Herschel Supply Co. has that problem solved though, offering about five of their bags for less than $60. One of those is the Heritage Backpack. The bag takes on the same silhouette of their Classic, but with the addition of a synthetic leather bottom & a bit of detailing. The bag measures 17˝x13˝x5.5˝ and is fully lined with Herschel’s custom fabric. Their bags sell fast, but it’s still available in black & navy at the Herschel Supply Co. shop.
Since their 2008 debut album Remind Me In 3 Days…, The Knux have slowly gained popularity for their unique electronic/rock-inspired sound. The brothers are at it again, currently working on a new album and an even further-evolved sound. They’ve released a new track titled “She’s So Up” which gives us a taste of the new feel, something they describe as if “The Stones mingled with The Clash, ZZ Top met Joy Division, and The Smiths chopped it up with PM Dawn.” Whatever that means, it’s good. Give it a listen below and head over to TheKnux.com for a free download.

Check out the music video for the Damien Marley & Nas track Patience. The highly stylized video was directed, shot, and produced by Nabil, who has previously worked with Kanye, Common, Bruno Mars, and plenty others. The video has a few crown & throne moments reminiscent of Kanye’s Power video, but don’t yell “ripoff!” as his official opinion on the piece is “super dope.” If you like the track, make sure to check out the entire album: Distant Relatives.
Make sure to check out this video from Chemistry Surfboards. It offers a behind the scenes look at what goes into the artistic side of their boards all wrapped up in a pseudo-music video. Enjoy!
