Cali-based Strictly Quality is a boutique store that lives up to their name, offering tees, crewnecks and other streetwear that’s equal parts fun, edgy, and bold. Building upon blank slates of mostly white, grey and black, the tees incorporate graphic designs paying homage to the streets with large typefaces and graffiti-inspired art. Currently, the store stocks only a few brands: Faded Culture, The Rest is Useless, TWO LTD, and Wetherby Co, and while they might not be up everyone’s alley, there’s definitely a sizable amount of cool to be found in this collection, which you can check out right now over at the Strictly Quality storefront.

If you’ve already beach-ified your bathroom with one of those radically custom SinkinSurfboard sinks, but still find that your standard mirror in there is just a little too plain for your liking, we’ve got you covered. The Skate Mirror from Suck UK will give your room decor that extra kick it needs, in the form of a faux skateboard constructed from stainless steel and a mirrored glass panel alongside genuine skate trucks. Mount one of these either vertically or horizontally, or heck, just prop it up in the corner as an art piece. Just, uh, don’t try to actually skate on one of these things. Available now direct from Suck UK.
You could probably dig up your old box of Crayolas and try your hand at making a pair of these, but it probably won’t turn out as nice. The new Marc Jacobs “Crayon” Sneaker is a decidedly unique offering, combining a minimalist aesthetic with an ode to our childhood days of yore for a humble yet striking look. The kicks feature a canvas upper construction that’s marked by its thick blue piping, a design cue that is sure to turn more than a few heads around town. Rounding out the shoes are top-notch tonal stitching and a slick, seamless white outsole. Available now exclusively in Japan from ZOZO; those looking to land a pair of these should hit up White Rabbit Express and their Buy Anything from Japan service.

Regardless of his less than sterling track record lately as majority owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, there’s no question that Michael Jordan’s on-court accomplishments have withstood the test of time. Among his most memorable moments is his game-winning jumpshot over the Utah Jazz’s Byron Russell in Game 6 of the ’98 NBA Finals, sealing the Bulls’ second three-peat that decade, and Jordan’s sixth and last championship ring. And now, Jordan Brand is revisiting that unforgettable moment in a huge way with the release of the Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot”, the same shoe MJ wore when he nailed that clinching shot all those years ago. → dope! gimme more!
