visvim Virgil Plain Toe Folk

We know that visvim is always came up with a good shoe. And i think everybody would want to have one of these. Virgil Plain Toe-Folk. Priced around $690. Damn.
"The hand-sewn shoe is constructed from a premium elk-hide suede upper atop a Vibram outsole and natural cork footbed. Given the highly breathable and moisture-wicking capabilities of the shoes, visvim has no qualms about suggesting users to go barefoot with the shoes."

Left Field Sportswear - Crazy Tee

There are things about Left Field that i've always like. Their simplicity in the design, their original classic and vintage fit, and their beautiful material selections. Using materials sourced from the U.S.A. or Japan, they have always find a unique material for their products that sometimes quite hard to find out there. Their latest creation is the Crazy Tee. These simple basic pocket t-shirt made with playful color combination are made from a 100% ringspun cotton, fiber dyed melange yarns. They are also been washed to give an extra comfort. Originally founded as a 50's style varsity t-shirt company, Left Field NYC also gives a vintage style neck label with a zig zag stitching. Very neat.

Boyz II Men

Been a fan since the 90s, and still am. Safe to say that they are the best R&B vocal group ever since the late 80s and i haven't heard any group who are comparable to them. After being around for more than 20 years and even though they are not in their prime age anymore, their 3 or 4 part vocal harmony is still one of the best out there. Been worked with the names like Babyface, Brian McKnight, Mariah Carey, and even Justin Beiber, their old songs like "I'll Make Love To You" & "End of the Road" are timeless classics. *Posted before on this blog somewhere, but this is a great performance of Motown Classics with Levert Brothers (R.I.P.).
"In the 1990s, Boyz II Men gained international celebrity behind unprecedented success on the pop charts. The group's first single to reach Number 1, 1992's "End of the Road", a phenomenal hit, reached the top of charts across the globe. "End of the Road" would set a new record for longevity, staying at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 13 weeks, breaking a decades-old record held by Elvis Presley. Boyz II Men would exceed even that record later in the decade with hits "I'll Make Love to You" and "One Sweet Day" (with Mariah Carey), which each set new records for the longest period of time a single remained at number 1. As of 2012, "One Sweet Day" still holds the all-time record with 16 weeks at the top of the Hot 100. In short, Boyz II Men ranks at the top of the list three times -- at the number one, three, and four spots -- for the longest running Number 1 singles in Billboard history. Furthermore, when "On Bended Knee" took the number 1 spot away from "I'll Make Love To You," Boyz II Men became only the third artist ever (after The Beatles and Elvis) to replace themselves at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Boyz II Men are among a select group of artists that have held at the number one spot for at least 50 weeks cumulatively, placing them just fourth on that list behind Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and Mariah Carey. These achievements were enough to earn Boyz II Men recognition as Billboard Magazine′s most successful musical group of the 1990s."
*A bit off pitch but still dope yo *Amazing vocal skills from Wanya and B. McKnight *Is Nate rockin' a pair of Jordan Concord?
