1688Lbs – Summer Looks

posted by Alex June 16, 2017

Get in tune with one of Chicago’s up and coming streetwear brands, 1688Lbs who just dropped their summer looks today! Peep game as they’ve been hard at work for the past couple of months with their guerrilla marketing, designs and exposure into the local scene. The homies at 1688Lbs have created a different taste in streetwear that’s been missing in the local scene recently. Their style is versatile as it caters to just about anyone from creatives, skateboarders, athletes, and really anyone who is looking for something different and fresh to rock. My picks for the drop are the 1688Lbs City Skulls tee as well as the Signature 1688Lbs Signature Tee. Check out the looks below and make sure to cop from 1688Lbs’s latest drop here!


Lookbook: Raised By Wolves – 2016 Spring/Summer

posted by Alex March 15, 2016


Here’s something to look forward to this week. Canada’s own Raised By Wolves is coming with their Spring/Summer 2016 looks after selling out their Vans collab in just seconds a few weeks ago. Everything goes up for sale on Thursday, March 17th at 10am EST (that’s 9am for us Chi-town peeps) so make sure you’re logged on and ready to make purchases at the appropriate time. I don’t see anything that isn’t appealing from the lookbook, everything seems to be having small but visible details. I’m really digging the 3L College waterproof Mac Jacket and the checkerboard hoodie. Check out the looks shot by Rupert LaMontagne for Raised By Wolves below.

DOPE Spring 2015 Drop 1: NTBFW

posted by Alex February 14, 2015


I’m definitely digging the uniqueness of Dope’s latest drop for their Spring 2015’s first drop. There’s a huge punk influence this season that I think is really setting Dope apart from the regular route that many streetwear companies take. I believe that many brands try to go through a punk route and fail miserably. Dope looks to be doing this properly and is showing why they are Nothing To Be Fucked With. Check out the rest of the looks below. Continue Reading

I always ask myself, “How is DBM ever going to top this season?” and bam, they do it again and I’m sitting here asking myself the same question once again. For the winter drop lookbook they fly across the pond to Paris with the one and only Trashhand to handle the snaps. Congrats to the good homies over at DBM, best believe I’m stopping by to cop some items this weekend. If you’re in the Chi head over to Fat Tiger Workshop, if not, just click HERE.

posted by Alex May 19, 2014


It’s always a good feeling when something new from Benny Gold is released because they always stick to their own route and always focus on putting out quality products.

If you’re ever in the Bay area, this is definitely a place to stop by. For the Spring/Summer lookbook, Benny Gold brings along Savannah Kreisman to collaborate with Western Exposure and produce a pretty dope set of pics. Check out what Benny Gold has in store below!
