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.

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

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 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.
Red Mtn Entertainment announced this morning approximately 7:15 AM that Kings of Leon would be performing Oct. 15th. Tickets go on sale Aug. 22nd at 10 AM via ticketmaster. Not a fan of ticketmaster, but a fan of KOL. Hope to see everyone there.
