Troy came by this morning so we could shoot some product and brainstorm about a Greymrkt® pop-up shop that we’ll be doing in Los Angeles and New York in the next couple of months. We can’t wait for you guys to finally come to a physical space, feel the merchandise and buy pieces in an environment where we get to interact with you. Oh, and in case you were wondering, we just restocked our SS18 Zippo’s again.
The biker community felt a shock through their heart yesterday as the news of David Manns death was spread. We will be attending Chopperfest in December where not only will we be celebrating his life but we’ll also be releasing something very special in memory of him at our Greymrkt® booth.

I get a ton of DM’s asking me to explain my personal style. If I’m going to be honest, I sort of dress like an updated or “refined” version of my Dad; which is fucking ironic since I was always so embarrassed of him when I was a kid. Weird how that works but instead of opening up a huge can of daddy issues, I’ll just break down what I’m into.
On any given day you can always catch me wearing at least one article of vintage Harley-Davidson®. I think I do a pretty good job at curating and collecting pieces for my closet from the 70’s-90’s. It can’t just be any HD item because lets face it, some of the designs were pretty shitty but I’m way into their single-stitched tees or collaboration with Tori Richard who makes super rad camp shirts.
As for denim, I really love how Hedi Slimane updated the Saint Laurent silhouette. I have a few pairs but they don’t necessarily hug my body yet give me space like you would wish in any successful relationship. You know? Like, love me but also admire me from afar when I need room to breathe. Acne Studios Ace denim is amongst my favorite but it takes too long for them to break into that comfort feeling that you can only get from someone who has seen you through your darkest and most joyful moments. I recently took my chances on the All Saints Cigarette cut. By far the cheapest on the spectrum of designer denim yet…. probably my most favorite fit. Cost effective and you get exactly (or even better than) what you expected. For anyone like me that loves a good skinny jean but has calves like a fucking ‘roided out body builder, these are the jeans for you. Perfect on the waist and thigh then gives you a little room on the calve and then BOOM back to skinny on the ankle. All Saints, I could kiss you guys right on the lips.
The only shoes that pretty much hit my feet these days are Hedi era Saint Laurent. I’m obsessed with the Skate shoe but can rarely find them in my size since they have long been discontinued. I also love Gucci sneakers and all white Air Force 1’s but feel they’re getting played out. I know, I know, they’re staple pieces.
My accessories are pretty much never changing. I can never leave my place without my Supreme Tunnel shades, Cartier ring and Louis Vuitton Folio iPhone case.
So, that’s me in a nutshell. Lowbrow shit with a highbrow touch. Even when I was super young I always said I wanted to be that guy that looks like a dirtbag but is driving a Ferrari. Something tells me that’s exactly where I’m headed.
We’re going to retro some of our accessories that we’ve made along our journey. The Architcture Rulers will be available next week but our infamous Baby Blockers were just added to the webshop. These things were talked about, blogged about and stirred up so many conversations in the bedroom. But hey, at least we got you to be safe and that was our ultimate goal.
There’s nothing that we like more than throwing free gifts in with your orders. Why? Because we love you and you deserve it.
First things first, we would like to apologize on the delay in shipping. Why the Zippo© factory would shut its doors for two weeks in the middle of July is truly beyond us. With that being said, the production is finally in our possession and we’re glad we decided to double up on the number of units last minute. Thank you to all of the people who pre-ordered. We knew this piece was going to make some noise but your guys’s support has truly been amazing (even celebs purchased multiple pieces for their friends… or one for each of their toxic lovers). The even better news is, your orders have officially started shipping! If you haven’t purchased one yet, you can do so here. *Every international order comes with a tracking number to avoid disruption or lost packages.

One mid-afternoon while enjoying a glass of Sauvignon Blanc at The Belmont with a love interest of mine, a hostess walks over to our table and asked us if we would like another glass? I immediately replied “keep them coming, I promised her my jokes would get funnier”. The hostess said, “Than maybe I should just bring you the bottle”. She was confident, witty and had a very strong energy which is something I am always drawn to when it comes to people I want to photograph. Long story short, Gina was exactly that when she stopped by for a test shoot.

It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of 032c, and visa-versa. Here’s some photos that we recently sent them that they absolutely love.
