New headphones "Nixon Nomadic All Black"

I had to buy new headphones, because the synthetic leather of my old ones started to crack. No worries, I've had them for a long time so it's no big deal. These new Nixon's won't have that same problem as they have memory foam on the inside of the earpieces in stead of synthetic leather.

Patrick Boivin

A colleague of mine from the audio visual department told me about Patrick Boivin and the work he did with action figures. Everything is filmed in his living room where he even recorded a commercial for the Google Nexus phone. This guy is a true artist.

Newest family member...

I found this limited edition Levi's Vintage Collection jean from the LVC spring 2004 line. This 1901 "Denim Devotee" jean is limited to 1690 pairs worldwide. All the repairs are exact replicas copied from the original jean in the Levi's Archive.

Also a nice fact is that it doesn't have the famous red tab, as the red tabs were introduced a few decades later.

Living supplies "Habitat"

Habitat is basically your higher segment Ikea. Everything is still reasonably priced, but the quality is very good and there is definitely good design concepts behind the products.

Pelican cases. Water resistant, crushproof, and dust proof.

Innovation "G-Star NYFW f/w 2010"

Too many denim brands look to the past for inspiration and seek to be authentic. G-Star respects history, but obviously moves forward through innovative design and technique.

My new arrivals from Topman LTD

Topman LTD is basically their premium line, which sets itself apart from their mainline by having a more sophisticated design and premium quality. From the LTD spring collection I chose the two pieces above: a heavy denim shirt and mustard carrot shaped chino.
