Christian Peau Washed Leather Sneaker Boots

Sexy.

Chris­t­ian Peau is a Japan­ese fash­ion house whose design is under­stood to bridge the gap between mod­ern avant-garde and clas­si­cal arti­san-based fash­ion. Unlike many cut­ting edge Japan­ese design­ers that have emerged from the last 10 years, Peau’s is much more Euro­pean in nature. His influ­ences lie in the tra­di­tionl arti­sans from the ear­ly 1800s who were under­stood to be mas­ters in their trade. Drawn from tra­di­tion­al shoe­mak­ing and leather mas­ter craftsmen,Christian Peau has rein­vent­ed the avant-garde in a mod­ern and beau­ti­ful man­ner.

The empha­sis is on hand­made leather garments—each shoe is made by hand in Japan with an assort­ment of hand-stained, paint­ed and washed leathers that are com­pound­ed and nailed togeth­er for a tru­ly unique out­come.

Nixon Modical Rotolog Watch

Cool, unique watch that I saw while brows­ing.

Get pre­ci­sion tim­ing in Nixon’s Mod­i­cal Rotolog Watch with lat­est style sport­ing a funky pat­terned enam­el coat­ing. Whether your steeze is hip-hop or punk the Modical’s cus­tom 30 meter stain­less steel with hard­ened min­er­al crys­tal case­back and stain­less steel straps show Nixon’s top of the line crafts­man­ship with diverse design. The Japan­ese Quartz time move­ment with led is eas­i­ly read from a roll dial on the right side of the cas­ing so you won’t be late for your skate ses­sion or cof­fee shop hang­out or what­ev­er. Use this watch in the dark with its back­ing light cause even though we’re oh so total­ly dif­fer­ent nobody has night vision, right?

MSRP is $449.95. But I saw it for about 50%-off at a deal site (now gone).
