garments - the avalanches' t-shirt club

the 't-shirt club' is a project started by the avalanches down in australia. they call it a magazine you wear. why? because there are 12 issues - one for the girls, one for the boys - each month, done by different guest editors. this month it's walter van beirendonck's turn for the guys and josh petherick's for the ladies. the 100 t-shirts produced are only available for one month only and won't be re-released. contributors in the past: paul frank & geoff mcfetridge, contributors in the future: ? you need to check yourself - regularely. before we close this bit - any proceeds of the sales go to charity.

sneakers - picks of the month

another strange development in sneaker-business: european stores are receiving japanese ltd. colors by nike. and we're not talking grey market deals here. so what is that all about? are those colors still 'japanese ltd.' or 'euro-japanese ltd.'? are the japanese no longer interested in their ltd. colors, so that they ship their stuff over to europe...? whatever. the colors are nice, the shoes are ltd., the models are among our favorites. so who cares. the shoes we're about to show you are available from the finest stores on this planet and online: rivington club, foot-patrol, browns, sneakersnstuff, streethreds, apartment, chapter, etc.

... still working on our first 'true' feature. while this is still in progress, take a look at some pictures from ryan mcginness' show 'sign age' which took place almost a year ago in munich at galerie de miguel.
relax magazine - #68

at beinghunted, we try to give you people hints on what to buy, what to read, where to go, and what to see. some of you follow that, some of you don't. this time you should all listen. get relax #68! after a very dry period comes an issue you'll like: there is a huge feature on slam city skates with details on everyone who is involved with it, or has some sort of connection to it (j. jarvis, oeuf, silasandmaria, 176, parkwalk, etc.). when you're finished translating that part, head to the fashion a-z and get your pen and paper ready: supreme figures, kaws be@rbrick, old school hip hop clothing, etc. your list will go on and on. ok, since we still owe you the cover for #67 - here is that one, too.

graphics -

from time to time, we feature some new (at least new to us) names in art & graphic design. today, take some time to get to know neuheus. you'll need it because the site features tons of artwork, photography, adverts, logos, fonts, etc. you will recognize some imagery from arkitip, some of the adverts, and maybe even those 3 skateboard designs that are currently on show at the separations exhibit in philadelphia. excellent photography, as well (basement jaxx, squarepusher, etc.).

sneaker update - supreme dunk

last time, everyone was waiting for the midtowns. now, even more people are camping outside of supreme to get their hands on the supreme dunk. we told you the release date was the 3rd. sorry, for those of you who flew over there just for the day. they are still not on sale. check back for an update - or go to ebay. they'll probably appear there in less than 2 hrs after they sell out at the stores.
sneakers - jb country club classics

for the giants in the sneaker business it's no big deal to put out a new model every month or new colorways every week or so. now imagine yourself doing this all by yourself. doing the design, overseeing the production, checking samples, and finally, also doing all the sales. you think that this is impossible? it's not. jason bass does all of the above and the result is incredible. you might find the style of these sneakers familiar, but the materials and colors definetly stand out. not to mention the attention to detail - each pair (204 per colorway) comes in a box w/ clear lid, shoulder bag, and a hand-numbered certificate of ownership. the first two models in the series - sf and nyc - will be available at true in sf early september. for more details contact jb directly.

retail - foot-patrol

posting this will probably make us irrelevant but maybe you'll keep coming back for non-related sneaker news/shopping hints. foot-patrol london was one of the most anticipated shop openings this year. for sneaker addicts that is. if you are familiar with the 'who' and - most importantly - the 'what' than you also know the 'why' - why the world was in need of this sneaker specialty store, why you won't stop being a sneaker addict, and why we are saying all this. you don't know why? check their brand new website. if you see something you like - email for availability and shipping options. and: please come back!

lodown - tees

we ended last month with t-shirts, we'll start this month with t-shirts. with their website update, lodown also opened ldwn shop which offers an exquisit selection of garments, sneakers, and accessories. just in time for the last sunny days, they brought in new stock: 3 new t-shirt designs by marok, pact, and shandro. but please remember this when you're shopping at lodown: don't get carried away. you'll still need money for food and maybe a warm jacket for winter!

beinghunted - update

this is the beinghunted fall/winter '02 website update. while we're enjoying the last days of summer, the new season is just about to begin. you might have noticed that the last couple of weeks were a bit slow in general. but that's ok - one should definetly spend as much time outside, as one can. it will get cold/rainy/foggy soon enough - at least in our part of the world. as you can see, the new site has an area called 'feature'. here we'll give you more detailed information on the regular bghd subjects. we are currently working on the first piece - until then, check our photos from the nyc urban experience museum.
