New Jamaica Vibes + Round Frames.

For the past week, I've been jamming to the tunes of fellow yardie – Proteje. And I must say it's been quite refreshing. We all love Bob Marley, but I had been wondering when another artist would come along and offer a modern alternative. I did a little digging and learned that, "there's an exciting resurgence of conscious, organic music in Jamaica" and artist like Protoje are leading the pack. It's a Reggae Revival. Stay Tuned for our Protoje interview. 




If you have't already you gotta get a pair of round frame sunglasses. They're going to be important for the next several seasons, so you might as well get a pair a now. Maybe you've been thinking about it, but have decided to hold on to your aviator or wayfarer styles. I dig that, but round frames gives most looks a smart stylishness… add atleast one pair. Check out our selections below ranging from $18 – $815 (a pair for all budgets):

Fell in the Sun.

It's starting to get a little chilly out there, so our wardrobes are undergoing slight modifications. One item that luckily doesn't have to be packed away from season to season are sunglasses… shades… sunnies – whatever they call them in your part of the world. Browse a few of our top pics below, as you listen to "Fell in the SUn" by Big Grams.

Music Break: A Shakur Summer, Get the Look

It's Tuesday, so why not play a little Tupac as we work. I love music, you love music, we all love music…  After having Marley Monday yesterday, I figured why not share our current listenings with you every once in awhile. Sometimes a song can dictate my post, a single verse can be the difference of why I choose a pair of Italian made moccasin -vs- a pair of Brazilian made huaraches to match a particular look.
