Wander over to The Generic Man website and you will find yourself lusting after several, several, several pairs of shoes. For example: there is a pair of silver hi-tops that I have almost purchased four times over because I have been dying for a pair of metallic shoes. Soon. To make matters worse (Or better?), their new collaboration with Comme des Garçons has surfaced and it is a sexy, sleek camo pair of kicks.
What are you doing this Labor Day? Well, Otherwild wants to help with a little pool party on September 1. Zac Monday will be doing some tarot reading and Telepathe will be performing and you can buy vintage from PURV.
August 23 at Steven Alan on La Brea is having a trunk show with Objects Without Meaning. There should be some good wears here!

When news broke that OAK was finally making the hop from East coast to West coast, I’m pretty sure I wet my pants a little bit. The brand is known for making and finding and selling a mixture of goth, androgynous, upscale streetwear that come in black, black, some grays, black, white, black, silver, black, and black. Their stores in New York are nice and intimate and, while I have yet to visit their Downtown outpost, I have a feeling that it is somewhat New York-ish still.
Without any pretense (Surprisingly.), the brand popped up in a weird Mid-City location this week, blocks from where I live, like a bizarre white castle amidst historically Hasidic establishments and a smattering of design destinations. What does it mean? Well, the brand has gone full Los Angeles, opening up a sprawling L-shaped building that surely is going to be one of the more popular and successful retailers in town.
