Parks and Recreation: Summertime Style.

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).

Villains & Vagabonds

They say every girl wants a bad boy- at some point. Or atleast a guy that looks bad, even though he may be a good guy at heart. Well, there’s one brand that will give you just the edge you need, while indirectly upping your street cred in the midst- Villains & Vagabonds. Named accordingly, V&V will surely toughen up your wardrobe.
Launched by the guys who created the clothing line KONTORSION, Villains & Vagabonds works to give classic “bad boy” designs a modern twist. Many of V&Vs shirts feature sexy graphics, scantily clad women, and guns, lots and lots of guns (pistols, ak-47s, magnums, etc)- basically all the makings of a classic Quentin Tarantino flick. This up-and-coming line is Southern California based, and all their tees are crafted at the company’s in-house screen printing facility (gotta love a t-shirt that’s made in the USA).

90’s Cheetah tee, $39

Collateral tee (black), $34

Collateral tee (white), $34

Buffalo Plaid tee, $29

Creative Tees: Lamar Odom presents Rich Soil Clothing

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it learned to walk with out having feet.
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.

Tupac Shakur’s Rose From a Concrete poem portrays the exact message that NBA superstar Lamar Odom is trying to get across- given the opportunity, anyone can grow. And that’s what Rich Soil is all about.

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.

LA Forever, $28
(also in purple and gold)

Heart of a Lion, $28

City Breaker, $28

Creative Spirit, $28

Featured artist for Rich Soil includes: Chuck Anderson, Mike Perry, Carine Brancowitz, Joe King, and more.

More than just a clothing line…

Besides producing stellar tees featuring some of the most creative artist of today, Rich Soil clothing further promotes its message with their Rose Campaign. Originally, based off of the “Rose Court” t shirt, the Rich Soil Team wanted a symbolic representation of growth and human spirit to thrive in any condition. By planting and documenting the Rose in unusual situations, these photos are meant to represent each of our personal struggles and the ability to grow into something beautiful. To partake in this movement email with your name and a photo of a rose with the appearance of growth from an unusual place/location that represents you as an individual.

Oh, let me not fail to mention that Odom’s line also carries women tees that are hot as well. So if you get one for yourself be sure to purchase one for you girlfriend too.
