4×4 squared.  Holy the location in this video looks intense:

New V8 biturbo from Mercedes.  Lime green is possibly the worst color imaginable for a vehicle.  I suppose in the video though it stands out, which is obviously the point.  Drive that color in the city though and you’re just trying too hard to get noticed.

Mercedes-G-Class-SquaredThat thing can sure go in rough terrain, wow.  No wonder militaries around the world use Mercedes vehicles in the same G class as that (the military ones are not as showy for good reason).  I have to much work to do to go down a google rabbit hole right now, but I wonder how Jeeps compare to these?  Is there basically no comparison and the Mercedes blows it out of the water?  Are the Jeeps amazing, and you’re paying a lot for the Mercedes name?

You can find out more information, and see of pictures on the Mercedes G Class Squared website.  Unless you have somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000+ to spend on this, don’t get too excited.

Nike Lab x James Lavelle:

Nike-Mo-Wax-MA-1-Destroyer-Jacket

Available at Haven – $700 CAD ($563 USD)

Haven describes it as a bomber / varsity hybrid.  Talks about the lustre of polyester, supple wool blend, and premium tumbled cow leather.  Are the cows tumbled (tipped?) or is the leather tumbled after the fact?  Kidding fam.  I feel like I have to call audibles on jokes on this site sometime.  Many you guys think there’s something wrong with me for talking about this stuff in the first place… gotta be safe and assume a joke-question about tipped cows might not be caught.

The jacket itself is pretty hot, I must say.  Classic MA-1 pocket on the sleeve, and they tossed us another outer pocket on the chest.  The tonal olive fabrics they use definitely work.  What the hell is up with the black unintelligible patches though?  That shit is straight ISIS.  Like if ISIS had a dope stylist, he (yes HE… I’m not trying to be sexist here but ISIS is not going to have a female stylist) would lace the whole crew in actual ISIS versions of these, along with the all black Balmain bikers and some black on black Common Projects Achilles’.  Think of how fire they would look posted up with the black balaclavas and AKs too? WOOOOOOOOOOO, now that’s what I call marketing terror to the fashion obsessed Western world.  The best part would be, even though take home weapons of war are no longer allowed, jackets definitely are.  When the whole lot of them are dead I’d call a favor in to have one of these show up at my doorstep FedEx International Priority.  I’d deface the patches, and USA USA USA the shit out of the jacket.  Might even be a savage and keep the blood on the fabric for authenticity, carry around the certificate I obviously would have copped from the DNA lab showing that the blood does indeed contain human and goat DNA.  Can’t fade me.  If you run into me, better have Allstate with you.  All day.

James Lavelle (who I hadn’t heard of), started a UK based record label called Mo’ Wax.  He must be doing alright for himself if he is famous enough (or has enough money) to have a Nike collab… I haven’t heard of much in their discography tbh.

Thoughts?  Would cop in current version, or war take-home ISIS version?

Some military themed footwear coming soon from Nike:

Nike-Military-Air-Max-1-Morale-Patch

Referencing key people, places, and moments in the Air Max’s evolution, the new Air Max 1 is packaged with twenty-two patches to create a customized look.

Nike-Military-Air-Max-1-Tan-Black

Oooo that OD colorway!  My next choice would be the murdered out ones, then lastly desert.   Pretty tight they come with the patches.  Definitely opens up some customization options in the future if you want to stick your own small morale patches on the tongue.

I’m not crazy about the flag being on the inside of the shoe.  I’m sure they don’t mean anything by it, but it just seems like a weird place to put it.  I would have prefered a tonal one embroidered on the side, or even one molded directly into the upper are of the sole.

These will all be available on NikeLab February 26th, so get your credit cards ready.  March 12th they will roll out to select stores in the United States.  Nike is priced really reasonably normally, so I’m sure these will be no more than $200.

Thoughts?

Phenomenon Tokyo comes through with the MA-1 bomber, with a twist:

Phenomenon-Tokyo-MA-1-Bomber-Jacket

LOL yea 16 pockets on the back alone, and it looks like there are side pockets too.  So much for just having the MA-1 Bomber classic, one on the arm.  You’ll full on need a second person to help you retrieve stuff from your back.  Either that or you’ll risk looking like a herb removing your jacket to fetch your inhaler, which you no doubt only have because you’re out here runnin’ shit.  *Oh my god oh my god, if I die I’m a legend*

Phenomenon-Tokyo-MA-1-Bomber-Jacket-1I have no idea on the price because the Phenomenon site is mad Japanesey.  Google translate fails me for the most part on there, but I gather that this back pocket version of their MA-1 is part of a capsule collection called “Tokyo Versus The Stage” which they have on for a limited time.

Thoughts?  Would cop?  It’s a tough choice between OD and black with this one for me.

More like *SKKRRRRRRRRRRRRT*. WTF?

Givenchy-Target-Print-Apron-Skirt

So let me get this straight, in 2014 society is so past gender norms that something which is called / and IS a skirt can be made specifically for men?  *slow clap* wow… just wow.  Don’t even get me started about those trap star tights the guy in the picture has on.  Or are they “thermals”? *smh*  Personally I think he should have just went full bad bitch and paired a shiny black leotard with that skirt, but maybe the world just isn’t ready.

$880 on SSENSE.  Just watch out for those school bullies my dude.

Just in case you thought kevlar shoes would save your feet from a barrage of gunfire:

Good looking shoe.  Trust OAMC to do it right.

OAMC-Radial-Lo-Kevlar-Oxford-1

OAMC-Radial-Lo-Kevlar-Oxford-2

OAMC-Kevlar-Low-ShoeI’ve never been as much for low’s as mid’s though.  Hopefully these will drop in a mid, and blow my mind.

You can grab these for $868 over at UNION.
