Once again, Nike, makes some of the best sports commercials. It's amazing how slowing things down makes everything look 45% better. Dave Chappelle was right all along.

A lot of thing have happened this week...

Ran across this gq article and just wanted to see your thoughts....

Jay-Z's "Run this town" video

New Jay-Z video for "Run This Town." His Blueprint 3 album is gaining a lot of hype and buzz. He even has one of the 2 producers from Empire of the Sun. Can't seem to see the sunglasses, but Rihanna's frames are much like Kanye's ones about 2 years ago.

The Hundreds

One of my favorite clothing stores, The Hundreds, have just posted a preview of their take on sunglasses. I'm really starting to think that shades will become the new sneaker craze... We'll see. The Hundreds are most known for their Bomb logo and targets a skating demographic. However, in the recent year, they've hit the main stream...hard. This frame above will definitely be on my Christmas wish list.

Thanks to hypebeast for the article.

Flat top frames

Flat top frames are starting to make a staple in the sunglass world. Seems as though it's the new style for frames. With that being said, Common Projects and Moscot New York, took the classic wayfarer look and added a matte black finish for the frame. Other features are the glossy tonal detailing and the minimalistic branding. They are going for about $350. Oh and they are very limited in supply. Good luck getting these.

Blogging from Lollapalooza starting Thursday. Wonder who else will be there and the amount of hipster sunglasses. I wonder if Urban Outfitters will have a shortage on neon-framed sunglasses?
