 We Love Seattle
…And our tees say it all!
 
If you’ve lived in Seattle for more than thirty days you’ll start to develop a giant love for this city… whether its the food, scenery or the wonderful dog parks that give Charlie the opportunity to run in circles every Sunday afternoon; we live in a gorgeous place! Its been said that beauty inspires creativity and these shirts are prime example of how our city has been an inspiration for others.

Designed by one of our ever-so-talented interns, Francis, the tee on the left is a combination of our logo and Seattle’s sky line. We lovelovelove them. And yes, its quite the biased opinion 🙂 Sizes are limited so grab them while they last!

The artist for Wet Cement made a recent trip to Seattle and snapped this cool picture of the intersection between Westlake and 6th Ave (right)…. and we just HAD to get it! The graphic is on a great burn-out tee, like all other Wet Cement products. Between the picture and the soft feel of the shirt, we know its a piece all Seattle-ites should have in their Summer wardrobe.
Wet Cement ‘Westlake’ Tee: $74.50

Marc Von Borstel – Seattle Photographer

May 15, 2009

I recently went to Swan Lake  with a valued friend – at the compliment of one of the Pacific Northwest Ballerinas, also a dear friend…

it was beautiful. 

Swan Lake is the paramount Ballet for traditional works and I had long been wanting to see it.  So thank you JA. 

Thus Swan Lake [and prompting by a certain ballerina]  is responsible for this post.   Yes, fashion is quite evident during ballet’s;  from the conductor, ballerina’s, and patrons to the audience and even doormen.  But the movementand form of the human figure is the reason for fashion…  and Marc Von Borstel [one of  seattle’s best fashion photographers] does a brilliant job capturing this.

Timeless: Ferrari in the Riviera

May 2, 2009

Top Gear inspires me.

Richard Hammond and  Captain Slow (James May) participated in a race of time, style, and virtue – yes, good clean fun.  The premise revolves around Hammond making the statement that the only way to travel along the Italian Riviera is in the classic Ferrari Daytona. May insists one must charter the Riviera in a XSR 48 superboat – a vessel of pure power & technology, aka superboat on water.
