NALU x KAMEHAMEHA (TEAL)

Monday, August 30th, 2010 by

Releasing tomorrow, August 31st

Aloha kakou!

Tomorrow we’re debuting another new tee: Nalu. It’s a salute to the world-acclaimed sport that our ancestors invented a couple of centuries ago, and the heart and soul that’s shown when one is looking at a twenty-foot face. The original culture of surfing is a spiritual one: looking for the perfect tree, digging up that tree placing a fish at the hole which was an offering to the Gods. Even the construction of the surfboards was extremely meticulous. The colorful graphic on the front is of the perfect wave in the perfect setting. Accompanying the shirt is a custom teal Kamehameha fitted with a purple brim and white Kamehameha logo.

SMOKED MARLIN

Monday, August 30th, 2010 by

Here we have a couple pics of my first Marlin and I have to say this fish lived up to the hype. Getting this fish in the boat was by far my most intense fishing experience and no easy task. It took three grown men and 45 minutes of tug-of-war to land this beast…. big mahalos to Uncle Jeff and Simi for the teamwork. You know it is a given that a big batch of Auntie Irene’s famous smoked marlin dip is in the works.!!

PIMPER’S PARADISE x PRIDE (RED / TAN)

Thursday, August 26th, 2010 by

Releasing Saturday, August 28th.

Aloha kakou!

This Saturday we’re unleashing our Pimper’s Paradise tee plus a brand new, custom Pride. The inspiration is pretty straightforward: although we live in a beautiful city that nearly the entire World considers paradise, beneath the surface there is a darker, grittier side, as with every city. It’s a great contrast of good and bad, yin and yang; we do sort of need both to have it balanced. Pride cap is all red upper with a white logo and tan brim / top button.

BABYLON SYSTEM IS A VAMPIRE x SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS

Thursday, August 26th, 2010 by

Available in stores now.

Aloha kakou!

Quick update: We’ve released a new hat and tee combo which is available in stores now. All black tee titled Babylon Is A Vampire inspired from the late, great Robert Nesta Marley’s Babylon System (song can be found below).The term “Babylon Is A Vampire” refers to the blood thirsty politicians whom prey on those of us who are at the bottom of the capitalist totem pole. Our entire government is structured as a capitalist caste system: rich / wealth = power, and obviously it’s those with power who are at the top of this pyramid. This same “power” is carried by religious leaders whom force their religion on the unknowledgeable, other wise known as tricknology. Tricknology introduces ideals to the masses not based on scientific evidence; basically based on untruths. But Babylon will see it’s demise soon enough! Along with the tee is a custom San Francisco Giants MLB in matching rasta colors.

T.A.S.T.E. (TASTY ASIA STYLE TACO EATERY)

Monday, August 23rd, 2010 by

These days, there seems to be a heavy influx of lunch wagons opening up all over the island. Sadly, the majority of them are unoriginal, uninspiring steak plate trucks. There’s so many popping up all over that it really is pretty overwhelming, to the point where one would grow tiresome of steaks at just the mere sight of one of these trucks. Luckily there are individuals out there that are more forward thinking with instant eateries. Enter Leroy’s T.A.S.T.E. (Tasty Asian Style Taco Eatery) lunch wagon located on the corner of McCully & Beretania. T.A.S.T.E. has been open for about a month now, serving up original taco recipes with original sauces (the wasabi dressing is a winner!). One of the highlights is the char siu avocado teri taco made with homemade char siu. Check out a photo of the menu for what they have to offer. Make sure your entire palate is clean and you have some time to spare; patience is a virtue, but the mouth-watering wait is well worth it! They’re open M – F and every other Saturday, between 11 AM – 2 PM.

CRUSH KILL DESTROY STRESS x ATLANTA BRAVES

Monday, August 23rd, 2010 by

Releasing tomorrow, Tuesday, August 24th

Aloha kakou!

Tomorrow’s release is pretty straight-forward: the social issues we all deal with (whether in Hawai’i or abroad) that creates a great amount of stress. Here in Hawai’i we’re dealing with such issues as the overcrowding of prisons, gas prices via the recession, an influx of homelessness, and social & native unjust. As much as it effects us, we must prevail, and we’re doing a pretty great job at it. The tee features the famous quote from Organized Konfusion in red, white and blue printed on all black. Releasing alongside is an Atlanta Braves custom MLB: black upper with red eyelets, purple brim and button and Brave’s logo.

F.B.I.

Thursday, August 19th, 2010 by

Here are a few photos we snapped from our daycation while visiting the Pu’ukohola Heiau National Historic Site on the Big Island of Hawai’i for the 200th Anniversary of King Kamehameha uniting the Hawaiian islands. Hawaiian culture was on full display, with a marching procession up to the Pu’ukohola Heiau, Hawaiian games, including spear throwing (albeit with a broom stick) and ‘ulu maika. After a few spent hours walking around the heiau, we got back in our soccer-mom minivan and checked out some nice sites around Kona, before heading back to the airport and catching our go! flight back to Honolulu.
