02/24/12 - The Strange Boys
We Recently discovered the band The Strange Boys out of Dallas, Texas and have been Loving their album "And Girls Club". Especially this song "Heard You Want to Beat Me Up", just a good tune and good sounding band. We really like what these guys are doing and look forward to hearing more from them to keep rocking it out in the TS office.
02/21/12 - Denim Obsession
Is there any better feeling than reaping the reward of suffering through wearing the same pair of unwashed, smelly, raw jeans day after day just to get achieve the perfect whisker pattern? For us, maybe not. The above images represent the result of a combined total of 4 years hard work. Yes we are officially obsessed, and yes we cringe at the idea of just how grimy these jeans must really be, but will that stop us? Never. From top to bottom the jeans shown here are: Khozo, Jean Shop, and APC. Next to be added are some RRLs that are currently in the works. This is what keeps us going.
02/09/12 - Falcon Motorcycles
We recently discovered Falcon Motorcycles and have been blown away by the beauty of the custom motorcycles they produce. These bikes are designed with amazing attention to detail and are not only seriously badass, they could each be considered works of art. Designed and built by the trio of Ian Barry, Dan Kanzler and Troy Morris, it is obvious these guys are passionate about their craft and are true artisans of the field. All the elements of what they are doing are spot-on – precise execution, meticulous detailing, strong concept, iconic logo, visually stunning display, the list goes on and on.
Falcon’s concept is to build a set of ten motorcycles, one each year, never to be repeated. “Each Falcon moving forward in the collection of ten, will be designed and built around the engine of an iconic pre- or post-war British motorcycle with racing pedigree.” Based on the the motorcycles built so far, The Bullet (pictured above), The Kestral and The ‘Black’, we can’t wait to see what will follow.
All of the existing motorcycles can be seen here at Falcon’s website which is also impeccably visually designed.
