After all the hysterical hype, the 15th annual desert festival finally comes to a bittersweet end. Nearly 180,000 crazed art and music fans flocked to this year’s Coachella Festival in Indio, California, with huge expectations of greatness. With astonishing art installations everywhere and the variety of world renown artists performing every second of the day, there’s no wonder why people drop hundreds, if not, thousands of dollars in preparation for this majestic cultural experience. We already cannot wait to see what 2015 will bring for our new generation of adventure-seekers.
Coachella has been a catalyst for reuniting musical groups in the past and is most definitely continuing to do so for our listening pleasure. Celebrating 20 years of their unique sound, Outkast launched their highly-anticipated tour on April 11th, headlining this festival and 40 more thereafter, throughout Spring and Summer around the world.
“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose…Don’t just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans - stank you smelly much, this is for y’all!” - Big Boi

This infamous festival also features various up-and-coming artists, giving them the opportunity for amazing exposure. Rising progressive music producers, The Glitch Mob, hands down rocked the Sahara stage from top to bottom, beginning to end. Their extraordinary sound pulsed through the dense sea of bobbing heads and hands. One of our favorite artists at Coachella 2014, definitely.

In the pursuit of happiness, Coachella attendees flew to the outdoor stage to see Kid Cudi perform. Because he has stopped hanging out with “Mary-Jane,” rumor has it that his music just isn’t the same. We beg to differ. He threw it down with new songs, old hits, and even brought surprise guest MGMT to feature in his set. Long live Mr. Solo Dolo!

A$AP Ferg had the whole crowd chanting “Shabba, Shabba!” No doubt the crowd was hyped up for this midday afternoon performance at the Outdoor Stage. Ferg had help from A$AP Rocky where he debuted a new untitled song. But wait, it didn’t end there. The A$AP Mob took stage with Skrillex to perform Wild For The Night.
The crowd was definitely happy and throwing up their hands for Pharrell Williams, who recently did a collaboration with the timeless French duo Daft Punk. Like every year, rumor had it that Daft Punk was definitely going to appear on stage with Pharrell. However, we didn’t see Daft Punk, but he did not disappoint with his special guest appearances. Over the two weekends, the cameos included: Snoop Dogg, Diplo, Gwen Stefani, Busta Rhymes, Usher, T.I., Jay Z, and The Jabbawockeez. That’s a line-up on its own!

If you haven’t heard of the musically talented Jhene Aiko, you definitely will hear of her in the very near future. She gained massive attention with her Sailing Souls mix tape in 2011, where she collaborated with Miguel, Drake and Kanye West. “I love me, I love me enough for the both of us…” As soon as Jhene began singing that catchy hook, the huge festival cameras came out to play. The crowd was on their toes in anticipation that Drizzy Drake would walk on stage to perform the rest of the song with her. Then a smooth, familiar voice announces, “This is my first time at Coachella by the way.” The sea of fans screamed and cheered in excitement. What an amazing surprise! It won’t be long until we see Drake’s name on the line up bill in the next year or two. Jhene also brought out Childish Gambino and Kurupt for her performance.
The Coachella Art and Musical Festival of 2014 has dwindled down to the end. With all the craze and hype buzzing around the great music and mind-blowing art installations, it’s hard to believe it’s all over – back on that daily grind. Until next year Indio! Thank you!
From the woods of Minnesota, comes the newest R&B thug genius; Spooky Black aka Lil Spook. This midwestern white teenager might surprise you; he definitely surprised us! Think of an American mix of James Blake with shades of Keith Sweat and Jodeci. Are you interested yet? His newest single “Without You” was filmed on a VHS camcorder and give the feel of winter time 1998. Not only is his music on point but his style in on another level. Not in years, have we seen turtlenecks and du-rags. Not to mention the FUBU 05 jersey donned by Lil Spook. This is a pure and raw example of the “Internet Age” generation. It’s about doing whatever the fuck you feel like and putting it up for the world to see.
Oddly enough, his newest album entitled “Black Silk” was available for a mere donation on the BandCamp website just a day ago. Now the link is dead. This is a mystery, maybe he got signed within the matter of hours or maybe just this young thug is a muse for someone else. Either way, try to get your hands on it, we did……
We always receive questions on how to style our Jogger Pants. Below is our take on how we styled each of the three color ways of the Tillary Jogger Pants.
View our Tillary Jogger Pants here.
Although we love our signature joggers, every man needs at least one pair of well fitted, yet stylish, traditional cut pants. Roll them up or keep it traditional, we got you.
Step into the classic cut Marioneer. Featuring durable slub twill fabric, reinforced back saddle paneling, and original ridge quilting on the front thighs, the Marioneer is a must for those occasions when you feel you got to go back to the basics.
The Jogger Pant is now a staple in most men’s closets across North America. Five years ago, this was not the case. The pants started as a mere concept that didn’t really catch on until about a year ago. The men’s pants category has been pretty stale with only a few options. The Jogger Pant gave men an exciting new option to look cool and feel good. The overall key to the pant is the cinched cuff. This allows for free movement and being able to show your footwear in a clean way. With the resurgence of running shoes worldwide, the Jogger Pant quickly caught on. Everyone was buying Roshes, Air maxs, Gel Lytes, and Discs to wear with their Joggers.
So what is the future of the Jogger Pant? Where is the evolution? Above is a sneak preview into the next creation called the Legacy Jogger. These pants are built for your everyday life. They includes an extended ribbed cuff, DWR stain proof and water resistance, and 2% stretch for extra comfort and mobility. The Legacy Joggers are set to release at accounts worldwide on May 1st.

We personally have been a huge fan of ESPO since the late 90′s. Growing up around and admiring graffiti, we checked out an installation that changed our life back in 2000. Barry McGee, Todd James aka REAS, and Stephen Powers had created this indoor wonderland entitled ” Street Market”. This opened our eyes to see graffiti and so called “street art” on a whole new level. Ever since that moment, we were fascinated with concept of punk rock, skate, do whatever the fuck you want artistic expression.
Fast forward to 2014, Stephen Powers workspace, Icy Signs, is open to the public. We decided to pay the man himself a visit and see what is was all about. Over the past decade, Powers has set out to create some of the best text work on a massive scale across the world. He has works in hundreds of countries. World wide respected, Powers calls Brooklyn his home. His work space/ store is located right in Park Slope. On any given day, you can go in and catch Powers working on projects or just hanging out.
Powers has just released an amazing book called ” A Love Letter to the City”. This is the first publication displaying all the artists large scale mural work. These gigantic love letters are place in random setting places like Dublin, South Africa, Sao Paulo, and Syracuse. If you are in NYC, go check out ICY if not pick up the book and explore…..

Daniel Arsham is a fresh american conceptual artist who is current showing his latest installation entitled ” Kick the Tires and Light the Fires” at OH-WOW in Los Angeles. Arsham is quickly becoming known for his unique sculptures and two-dimensional work.
Arsham takes nostalgic everyday items and appiles a very specific process of rock and minerals including quartz, volcanic ask, obsidian, and glacial dust ash. This process gives off a questionable end result. Are these pieces from the future or past? Have they been calcified by the world’s end or are they antiques being restored? All these questions leave the viewer in awe and excitement. Take a look below from the opening night of the show…
