Rogue Territory - Lightweight 6 Oz Denim

Even though it seems like heavyweight denim is pretty popular right now, never crossed my mind for me to buy one of those more than 18oz denim. Hence the beautiful fades, we live in Indonesia where the weather is.. you know, hot. It's a reason why sometimes a comfortable chino or trouser or maybe shorts is a good alternatives.

Well, i found something interesting on Rawr Denim. A lightweight 6 oz (yeah that must be super comfy) denim pants from Rogue Territory. This collaboration jeans between Rogue Territory & Ryan Plett uses a 6oz sanforized japanese denim from Kaihara Mills and featured with details such as Selvage on fly, Hidden pen pocket in right backpocket, hand branded leather patch and "trouser-like" front pocket. This pants are also handmade in downtown Los Angeles.

The jeans were available for Pre-order at Rogue Territory, but too bad that the pre-order has closed. This pair is Ideal for the summer heat but still wearable by day and night.

Weaver Moccasin - Marmot Shoe

Take a look at the Marmot Shoe from Weaver Moccasin. Inspired by the timeless classic Clarks' Wallabee design, the Marmot shoe features a leather upper with Goatskin lining for an extra comfort, and as you can see the stitching details are amazing. Grab this Marmot from weaver moccasin at Oi Polloi

Weaver Moccasin is a footwear brand from Japanese designer Hiroshi Takahashi's High Bridge International company. Hand finished in Portugal, these shoes are rarely found outside of Japan.

Based on the original most coveted Clarks Wallabee designs from the late 60's (when they were still hand-made by Padmore & Barnes in Ireland) the attention to detail displayed throughout the Weaver Moccasin range is, as we have come to expect from our Far Eastern friends, faultless. The shoes are genuine moccasin construction uppers, stitched to a doubled layered crepe sole and the overall quality is amazing. Weaver Moccasin are a welcome re-interpretation of some of our favorite footwear.

Jazz Liberatorz - Indonesia

Couple of months back i heard this French Hip-Hop Crew, Jazz Liberatorz, and i have been in love with their music ever since. I'm a fan of hip hop like Wu-Tang, Tribe, Gang Starr, etc., and also a fan of old jazz music like Sinatra, Fitzgerald, King Pleasure, etc., and these two kinds of musics are what Jazz Liberatorz does. Their music is a tribute to the golden age of Hip Hop, taking its strength into the roots of the black music and more notably in jazz music. Through out the album, the listeners will discover warmful sounds of the old jazz fusion records from the 70's mixed with samples and live instruments.

Yesterday, when i once again browsing on Youtube for Jazz Liberatorz, i suddenly find out that in 2007, Jazz Liberatorz released a mini album on 12" Vinyl which contains 6 beautiful tracks and one of 'em is titled "Indonesia". The track "Indonesia" came in version, one which features Tableek of Maspyke, one is acapella and one is Instrument only. Stream these Jazz Liberatorz's below!

Yep, On this Fall 2011, Nike has come up with a new Tech, Hyperfuse, which creates a durable composite material composed of three layers; one for stability, one for breathable and one for durability. All three layers are fused together using heat and pressure to create a level of precision unattainable via traditional cut-and-sew methods. The uni-body design results in lightweight, breathable footwear and minimizes seams that can wear on an athlete’s foot. This time, the amazing Hyperfuse technology is combined with one of Nike's timeless, Air Max 90. Not only applicable on Air Max 90, the Hyperfuse tech is also used on several Nike products like Nike Dunk.
The other highlight is Nike AW77 Hybrid Jacket. Being reintroduced this Fall with technology innovations featuring waterproof Vislon zippers, bonded seams and tape back construction for a better fit. The AW77 Hybrid Hoody can be traced to its debut in 1977, and is today remixed in bright colors and premium details. Made from 100% cotton terry fleece fabric, the hoody provides a soft athletic fit and the full front zip affords customized ventilation to adjust to the swings in weather in our unpredictable tropical climate.
