HUMAN MADE x Hot Dog Club Varsity Jacket

Any cinephile who knows his ’80s ski movies can tell you that the term “hot dog” means to show off, and one can do just that in this Hot Dog Club Varsity Jacket from Human Made. The new venture from A Bathing Ape founder Nigo is steeped in pre-1950s Americana, an era perfectly distilled in this vintage-inspired letterman jacket. Made in Japan and crafted with premium melton wool, the garment features leather pocket trim, snap button closure and striped ribbing at the collar, waist and cuffs. An embroidered Human Made logo at the left chest is repeated on the distinctive Hot Dog Club patch at the back. It’s available for purchase now through End Clothing.

Kicks Of The Day: Nike Vintage Nylon Blazer Hi x Electrolime

Of all the retro styles to undergo Nike’s pre-yellowed vintage treatment, it appears the Blazer is on the receiving end of that particular honor more frequently than most. It makes sense — the Blazer was born in 1973, after all, and its spartan, no-frills design certainly evokes a simpler time. A new Electrolime colorway, however, makes the case that the sneaker is just as relevant today as it was in the polyester ’70s. Built with a ballistic nylon upper in an appealing neon green hue that highlights the shoe’s clean lines, the Vintage Nylon Blazer Hi is available for pre-order now throughEnd Clothing.

Kicks Of The Day: New Balance M1500 Pre-Order

When the first New Balance M1500 sneakers were launched, it came with a whole lot of features that justified the very high price point. It just goes to show that New Balance was not willing to sacrifice on quality, even if it meant the end product will be at a premium price. And to this day, the M1500 series is a popular sneaker for runners and sneakerheads. For the next season, New Balance is going back to its roots and keeping a minimalist approach towards the whole sneaker. Both versions are made up of white, black and grey on the nubuck and mesh uppers with a hint of mint and lemon as highlights. Expect these classic sneakers to drop around February 2012 and for those who can not wait until then, end clothing is accepting pre-orders right now on their online store.

As sneaker aficionados continue to marvel over the recently revealed rendition of the Nike LeBron 9 “Watch the Throne,” we have since been awarded a closer look at the accompanying jewelry piece, crafted by well-known jeweler Gabriel Urist. The inspiration is clearly connected to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne album art by Givenchy’s Ricardo Tisci, which bears the same luxuriously gold aesthetic. Six pieces have been created to coincide with the six pairs of sneakers that will unfortunately never see retail.

Sugar House Detroit

From hand-crushed ice and freshly squeezed fruit juices to flaming cocktail inventions and an early 1900s environment, Sugar House offers a glimpse into its unique and refined underpinnings via its latest short film by The Work. Compiling a range of internationally curated beers, exceptional wines and locally grown ingredients, the Detroit-based craft cocktail bar puts an entirely new spin on the old “watering hole” cliche.

Union x Luke Meier x Mark McNairy

 Union x Mark McNairy Holiday 2011 Collection
Previous releases between Union Los Angeles and Mark McNairy have been big hits, so why not keep it going, right? This time around, the two hooked up to on 4 new styles, as well as a restocking of the popular “Blue Bey” saddle shoe. In an interesting move, Union, along with Luke Meier, took a classic country brogue and freaked it a bit with the addition of some color pop — including red against a sand color and a light blue against a navy upper — in the welt area with some laces to match. All in all, it’s another solid drop from both of these great labels. These are all currently available at Union.

Top 10 Albums Of 2011

OK Hip-HopDX has put together what I think to be a horrible collab of top 25 albums. I think to give the year 2011 justice that #TeamAlius would come up with its on synopsis on the #Top10 albums of 2011. While reading other sites #Top10 list I became upset, bewildered, confused and finally found myself laughing calling the team and saying "have you read this yet!?!?!" They felt the same way. Some people didn't even deserve to make the cut let alone be mentioned in the list itself. I thought to myself why don't we conduct our own #Top10 list with the office we work in. Testing peoples hip-hop IQ. Not saying that any other office around the world list is incorrect but we feel it could have been a shit ton better haha. Here we go.

We Love to hear comments so please send them in or Tweet them!!!

Top 10 Albums of 2011

10.The Roots - Undun
The Roots have a lot of strong records, but I think that "undun" might top them all. Top notch musicianship and rhymes make this arguably, most debatable hip-hop record of the year for the Grammys.
-Tip The Scale
-Kool On

9.Common - The Dreamer/The Believer
Every song on "The Dreamer/The Believer" succeeds off the strength of Common and No I.D.'s seasoned chemistry and Maya Angelou’s poetry on top of it equals major success.
-Ghetto Dreams

8.Game - R.E.D Album 
It was a pretty solid effort from Game. One of his more well-rounded albums, though we've seen better singular songs from him.
- Red Nation
- The City
- Ricky
- Drug Test
- Pot of Gold

7.Lil Wayne - Carter IV
There goes Lil Wayne, wearing bleached leopard-print skinny pants women’s pants. There goes Lil Wayne, riding a skateboard and falling off. There goes Lil Wayne, who can’t sing worth a lick, “How to Love,” into the Top 10 of the Billboard pop chart. Judging by his behavior in 2011, rapping seems to be the furthest thing from Lil Wayne’s mind, but....well leave that up to the fans he has.
-It's Good
-She Will

6.Wale - Ambition
One of the best surprises of the year. An incredibly solid album, it's a lot less mainstream than his last album, but it's all for the better.
- Ambition
- Miami Nights
- Chain Music
- Legendary
- No Days Off

5.Eminem &Royce 5'9 - Hell: The Sequel
This wasn't a fantastic album. It was mainly an album of Filler Tracks but still hits like a right hook from yo moma if you interrupted her during Oprah haha. Two dope lyricist goin hard on some good production.
- Lighters
- Fast Lane
- Living Proof

4.J.Cole - Cole World: The Sideline Story
This is poetry at its finest. J.Cole's 2011 debut studio album shows that he has a message to send to people listening to his music and that he's 2011's best new artist of the year.
-Work Out
-Dollar And A Dream III
- Sideline Story 
-In The Morning

3.Drake - Take Care
Once again Drake has proved himself to be greater than his predecessors. This was a very slow, melancholy album. But it was still very solid overall with great lyrics and production value.
Must Have Songs:
- Over My Dead Body
- Headlines
- Lord Knows
- Underground Kings

2.Young Jeezy - TM: 103
This trend continues for a majority of the project, but things change dramatically halfway through. For some odd reason with only being out for an official week Jeezy has made it to the number #2 with I guess his lyrics (on repeat) and with content (nothing new). 
-I Do

1.The Throne (Jay-Z & Kanye) - Watch The Throne
A classic in our eyes from the 2 of the best in the game right now. With the play on words, controversial lines and then  ridiculous production value from the best in the business this was a winner with A's all across the board. 
-No Church In The Wild
-New Day
-Niggas In Paris 

Honorable Mentions

Tyler, The Creator - Goblin
Raekwon - Shoalin vs. Wu-Tang
Joell Ortiz - Free Agent
Kendrick Lamar - Section .80
9th Wonder - The Wonder Years 

Seletti Burlesque Chandeliers

I think this is def a convo piece. Would you get for your house???

Yasin Bey aka Mos Def x The Fellowship Mission

In conjunction with Weareblind TV, the Brooklyn-bred artist travels to Paris to likely gain some inspiration for his newly formed band of creative minds, checking out a traveling trade show featuring Sanders & Sanders Shoes and visvim. Again, not much is known for the future of Fellowship Mission, but there have been news circulating the blogosphere that the first release will be an oil based fragrance named Harun -No.7-.


Kicks Of The Day: Complete Technique x Nike Snowboarding “American Eagle” Zoom Force 1

Yo these shoes are from Nike Snow boarding team. Given the name “American Eagle,” this regal casing spawned from Koyama’s fond appreciation for Japanese anime’s “Saint Seiya” and manga’s “Berserk,” forming an underlining theme for the mold. These snowboarding shoes are #Dope I would wear them.

Cranbrook Art Museum

Located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan the Cranbrook Art Museum is a three-story structure that provides 7,000-square feet of art collection storage. The Collections Building is composed of three rectangular volumes decreasing in height and width as the building progresses northward away from the museum. The west facade is a continuous brick wall that steps down as the volumes recede. Void of fenestration the brick is toned a deep, rich brown and clear coated to provide for gentle reflections amongst the fine blades of stainless steel. The building’s interior is an expression of utilitarian concrete block construction enhanced to an artistic light. The changes come courtesy of the SmithGroup JJR which has saved the Cranbrook Art Museum’s accreditation from the AAM thanks to the new-world upgrades.

Kicks Of The Day: Nike Air Force 1 The Gift

Nike flagship store 21 Mercer has created a distinctly unique, and even more limited in nature version of the Air Force 1 dubbed, “The Gift.” Featuring a denim upper, brown leather mid-sole and red accents that give it a hint of edge, it’s finished off with an apropos “gift” embroidered on the rear. While these will never hit the retail stage, you can visit 21 Mercer’s twitter account for your chance at an “after the holidays” present to yourself.
