Incase has without a doubt become the go to brand when it comes to iPhone and iPad cases, at least when it comes to just the right amount of design and superior quality.
Their latest offering includes new chrome and metallic cases for the iPhone 4. The Chrome case comes in black, gold and silver. The new metallic cases include the colors red, pink and dark grey, which is our personal favorite.
New York City of the ’70s and ’80s was notoriously rough—a hard, bitter apple. The city was rundown; poverty and crime were widespread. But that environment fostered an incredible creativity. Some of the world’s most celebrated art and music originated at that time and place. Skateboarding, born in California, took on a distinct edge when it caught on on the East Coast. And though today’s New York has been polished into a glistening metropolis, traces of a grimy yet inventive Old New York remain.
Javier Nunez, Akira of AM New York, and NA of Deadline have all built careers off of their deep roots in New York City skate culture. Downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn staples, they’ve seen the city change over the last three decades.
G-Shock and Frank151 brought Javier, Akira, and NA together for a special section in Chapter 45 of the Frank Book and the below video piece to talk about the New York they grew up in, where they are now, and their experience wearing G-Shock.
Big Sean spotted reppin G-Shock while filming a music video in LA earlier this year.

We are proud to announce the release of the fourth episode of Picture Perfect featuring Vincent Fournier. In this episode, Picture Perfect visits Fournier at his studio in Paris, France where we talk about his unique process, inspirations and distinct style that merges fantasy with reality in photographs of robots, research facilities, otherworldly landscapes and cosmonauts. We then travel with Fournier to Cape Canaveral, Florida as he documents NASA’s Kennedy Space Center prior to the last space shuttle launch.
Born in Burkina Faso, photographer Vincent Fournier spent the majority of his childhood in Brittany, France. Earning degrees in visual arts and sociology at Montpellier, Fournier went on to study at l’Ecole Nationale de la Photographie in Arles. Fournier’s frequent visits to the Palais de la Decouverte Museum of Science as a child planted the seeds for what would become the focus of his work. Fascinated by the magic of machinery, Fournier’s photographs explore humanity’s relationship with technology and attempts at using it to gain an understanding of the world. Staging his subjects in controlled environments, Fournier’s images mix fantasy with reality while introducing an element of futuristic irony.’
For his ongoing Space Project, Fournier’s stylized vision is realized at some of the world’s most prominent space centers: Gagarine Cosmonaut Training Center near Moscow (Russia), Mars Desert Research Station in Utah (US), observatories in the Atacama Desert (Chile), and the Guyana Space Center in Kourou (French Guiana). In this episode, we follow Fournier to the NASA Kennedy Space Center. During this long awaited visit, Picture Perfect documents Fournier’s process in finding his unique point of view on-location as he captures the vast expanse of the center and the space shuttles Discovery and Atlantis.

NAVAL BUTTONDOWN (NAVY)
This just makes me laugh. Theres a lot more humor in the line this season
than we’ve had in some time. This was based on a hat I did for a limited
segment of the line I did a few years back called Division. That part of
the line disappeared, but I still get a lot of requests for the hat, so I
decided to create a buttondown version of it. U.S.S. Fuhkmore… It still
makes me laugh.
YANK THESE BASEBALL SHIRT
Its an Ode to to a classic baseball shirt without the Yankee baggage. We’ll
see if I can work this into my wardrobe, but even if I cant, it wont be
because I don’t want to.
WILD AND PEACEFUL TANK
Love the colors on this one along with the idea of combining stripes with
animal prints. I always try to create a few pieces that are push the limits
of whats cool. This with some jeans is a winner.
CARPENTER SHORT (INDIGO STRIPE)
The short itself is not a classic, but the piece speaks the language of
several classics ( railroad stripe, carpenter pant, classic beach short).
By referencing those styles its takes on some of the classic qualities, but
is something new. I’ve already been wearing these a ton.
BARREL DUFFEL (CAMO)
I’m super siked on this as it is, along with the backpack we did this
season, the first time I’ve made bags under the 10.Deep name since 1997. We
sold a lot more of the backpack, but I’m an older dude, so the duffel is
more appropriate for me. The colors on the bag came out perfect.
This was inspired by an imagined sun bleached red, yellow, and green tank
top. Its a reference to reggae and jamaican culture, both of which remind
me of the best parts of summer.
FARG 10 DEEP TEE
I’ve not worn graphic tees for a while now, but these will likely make it
into rotation this summer. I think many good brands take themselves too
seriously and they get too sensitive about criticism, and hate. My thought
is that if your brand is strong, or more importantly you’re a secure
person, people’s hate, or criticism can’t hurt you. That and they’re also
stupid tees to make, and intentional stupidity makes me laugh, and hopefully
will make other people laugh too.
HUF team rider, Mike Vince, gives Push.ca a rundown of five cities that he has spent time in…
In an age when most skateboarders seem like they can’t post their newest throwaway montage online fast enough, Mike Vince’s care for his craft is extremely refreshing. Quality over quantity is the simplest way to sum up Vince’s skating. He does the right tricks, at the right spots, in the right way. Because of this selectiveness, footage and photos of Vince are always gold.
Over the years, Vince has lived in a handful of Canada’s best skate cities and spent endless months traveling abroad. I recently sat down with him as he described just some of the many places he’s skated and what life is like in each.
During the long and wet winter of 2005, I scrounged up enough money to go on my first skate trip overseas. The destination was Barcelona, Spain. The city surpassed all expectations I had, and little did I know that I would return every winter for the next five years. I spent my days enjoying what a skateboarder might consider a better quality of life: flawless spots, cheap food and drink, and a total lack of responsibility. I usually travel here with a few close friends. In recent years, I have enjoyed staying and skating with Milan Mitrovic and Thomas Winkle. I can’t wait for next year!
To my surprise, I have called Vancouver home for the past eight years. I say surprise because I have never really enjoyed skating this city. A great group of friends and mild winters are enough to keep me around though. I skate with anybody who has been a part of one of the many skate houses I have called home here. I usually find myself skating the Plaza.
I was born and raised in Winnipeg. For that reason alone, it will always remain special to me. I try to make it back once a year to visit old friends and skate it’s many great spots. If I’m going skating here it’s with Aaron Rosenblatt and Jeremy Gelfant. We have been skating around the city together since we were preteens. If Winnipeg gets the Jets back, I may need to reconsider my living situation. The city is quite old and has a classic feel to it.
I lived in Montreal the entire summer of 2010. If you skateboard in Canada, this is the place to be. I stayed at the Hotel Berri, a skate haven owned and operated by an all around good guy, Mikey J. I would meet up with McGraw and whoever was around from the Dimestore daily for a shralp at Parc La Fontaine. The locals are friendly and the spots are incredible. Beware of Boulevard Saint-Laurent at night.

New York City
I have been to New York City twice in the past year and can’t seem to get enough. I lucked out when my good friends Ben and Marianne moved there. They help me out with a place to stay whenever I visit and go above and beyond as hosts. The most interesting place I have ever been perhaps. Everything is readily available to you in NYC and every day brings a new adventure; currently my favorite place to travel and skate. See you soon Ben!
Mayer Hawthorne and his band the County also recently finished a tour with Janelle Monae and Bruno Mars on the Hooligans in Wonderland tour. Peep him rocking his Bentens while his band sports our Navy Boynes.
