Parks & Recreation: Snapback & Tees (Summer Edition).
(behind-the-scenes video of Parks & Recreation: Summertime Style)
Lately we've been so caught up in button-downs, selvedge denim, shawl collar cardigans, and double-breasted blazers that we've forgotten about the relaxed easiness of a simple t-shirt and shorts. So we pulled out the snapbacks, fresh tees, a variety of shorts, and matching accessories to help get you through what seems to be the hottest days of summertime. Also, introducing, Ben Swann #TeamTUG.
An afternoon at the park.
10:37AM// Eat breakfast.
11:15AM// Pack your bag for a good ole time at the park (yo-yo, check, frisbee, check, a ton of games to have old-fashion fun, check…).
11:45AM// Always say "hi" to the neighbors or passersby, wave or casually throw up deuces (aka peace sign).
11:51AM// Look both ways before crossing the street.
12:03PM// Keep cool and be nostalgic– buy a popsicle from the ice cream man.
12:19PM// Sit on a bench (in the shade of course), people watch, and ponder upon life.
12:43PM// Play frisbee with a friend. (or any other park-friendly sport to your liking)
1:42PM// Take a breather and relax before heading home, or to your next destination.

Funny it seems, but by keeping it’s dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared.
Rich Soil is a clothing line that promotes creative design, spiritual iconic imagery, and the shared idea that growth can come from virtually anywhere. Started by Lamar Odom and designer Jonathan Garcia, Rich Soil seeks to be at the forefront of new ideas. Drawing inspiration from an eclectic mix of experiences, musical taste and personal philosophy. Rich Soil uses the T-shirt as a vehicle to promote more than a brand, but a movement that represents the creative spirit of all people.
You’ll also notice that many of Rich Soil’s designs include a lion, rose, and or trumpet. The lion and trumpet are iconic imagery taken from biblical references and represents the spirit inside everyone. The rose, as mentioned earlier, represents growth.
