in my bathing apes

While the online store for Bathing Ape has been up for a couple months now, you probably haven’t heard too much about it.  The new releases aren’t marked by an email or RSS feed, so you have to hope you’re online at the right time for exclusive drops.  That being said, I’m not sure when these scarves released, but I’m a huge fan already.

I would probably wear a lot more BAPE if it weren’t for the price.  I can’t justify $73 on a graphic t-shirt, much less the $200+ for sweaters and $500+ for outerwear.  Even as it stands, you’re better off having basic outwear and save bright colors/patterns for your accessories.

That’s why a camouflage scarf would be perfect.  Wear it with a tweed blazer and go for the Kanye look or throw on your heaviest parka and bundle up.  Yes, it’s camouflage, but it’s not military surplus looking.  And the best part is that it costs just as much as a t-shirt from Bape: $73.

Info: 10 inches wide by 63.25 inches long, available on BAPE.com

And while you’re on the camouflage kick, upgrade your home as well:

re: nigo’s addiction

The proof:


Nigo is a collector to the extreme.  Not sure if I like these more than Kanye’s Fendi trunks though.

nigo has got the hookups

From pretty much every brand, it would appear.


Speechless.

I’ve always kind of thought grilles were tacky.  Mike Jones, Paul Wall and Nelly have popularized them (plus Lil’ Wayne’s recent $150k permanent grille) but they’ve gone the way of the dodo bird lately.  Who is still repping them?

None other than one of the godfathers of streetware, Nigo.  Seen on his Honeyee blog, and reinforced through a questionable Google Translate, this Jacob & Co. grille is removable only by a dentist and requires monthly checkups.

Excessive?  Maybe.  But have you seen his house?  This doesn’t surprise me at all.

BAPE obviously pays well.  Nigo posted a picture on his Honeyee blog of what is presumably his new Bang & Olufsen setup.

I’m sure the rest of his house is even crazier.  And notice the Haring book on the coffee table?  And quite the interesting shelving near the TV…
