Today we went to the Met (The Metropolitan Museum of Art). When you think of a museum, you think of this. Rembrandts, van Goghs, mummies, Greek statues, the whole shebang. Except for dinosaurs, nope no dinosaurs.
If you are annoyed by people with little those little gay dogs, it's not a new trend it's been done forever.
They even had a Wemoto print up there.
Like in streetwear they had an overkill of the ancient Egyptian arts.
They also had an Arms and Armour section, which was fucking cool. Guns, knifes, swords, axes and of course armour.

Emmelie from FUCT gave me the tip to visit Blue Ribbon Sushi. Well she knows her food, thanks.
It's no Aunt Emma's, but still we had a good breakfast.
Eline: Pancakes with bacon.
Me: Spanish omelette with potatoes and toast.
And off course big mug of good ol' American coffee.
Benny, you know I'm not showing you all the healthy food I'm eating. Because I know that would disappoint you.
New York meets China.
A lot of ducks in Chinky Town.
Howling wolfs are cool everywhere.
This is a high-end Chinese store, filled with high-end Chinese junk.
This guy was really creepy. He wanted me to take a picture of his bald spot, he looked at it and then wanted me to touch it. Just learn English and tell me what's wrong, alright?

This is specially for Benny, if you follow his blog a little you might know he's addicted to American food.
Benny this was great, me and Eline shared a home-made cheeseburger and a Mexican Chicken Diabolo sandwich served with home-made fries.
This was just lunch and it was great, fucking A!
So me and my girl flew in to NYC yesterday. And luckily the Big Apple had a nice birthday present waiting for me; a whole lot of rain.
But wet streets give a nice effect in pictures.
Today was a pretty amazing day though, about 28 degrees Celsius and a perfect blue sky.
My girl got me this car for my birthday, but it already got stolen. Damn you New York City!
We passed by the Church of Sixpack in the Lower East-side. Didn't know they had such a big following out here.
Check back daily for more NY updates.

We have always made our own T-shirts with different artists, but from now on we're going to drop 4 serious collections a year. Put togehter by none other than my buddy Friso (Freshco). The first one contains 26 T-shirts and has been online for a couple weeks now. Featured artist Kayeko made this ad for his own Tee.
Also check out our feature on SlamXHype.

This our new best friend; Pisang Ambon Boy. He hangs around our house (The Party Palace) a lot. He's some sort of genius and a great source of inspiration to me in the way he lives his life. Please check out his myspace and the video posted below.

We got offered a free booth (thanks Leon) at the Modefabriek, the only real 'fashion' tradeshow in Holland. Well not on the show itself but outside in 'The Village'. I don't know if you've been outside Sunday or Monday, but we've been burning in the hot sun for two days. Besides that drinking beers and talking to people. Life's tough.

So fuck it's been a while, but here I finally am again.
With my laptop crashing, tradeshow season and Jesse going on vacation in one of the busiest periods of the season I didn't have enough time or opportunities to blog I am very sorry, alright?
Well let start of with the Bread & Butter in Barcelona. Me and Jesse were sharing an apartment in the prostitute area with fat Peter (Frisco) Remco (Ontour) and G-G-Gio (Re-Issue). Which equals fun and a high level of streetwear knowledge (YAWN!).
First night me and Jesse had to go to the Sixpack sales meetig, which they held on the roof-terrace of their penthouse, nice! Fucking nice collection, you'll see it in half a year haha. Utopia!
When we were supposed to meet up with Peter and Gio for diner, we ran in to your favourite Fin; Timothy (CTRL). Jesus Christ I can't believe how cool he was looking. Was he always like this or did he turn into a hipster overnight?
We decided to join him and the rest of the the CTRL crew (Freeman, Esa and their Barcelona hostess) for diner. Bam "the Goth" Margera was sitting next to us and even got up so Gio and Peter could sit. Peter was all starstruck, he even took a picture with him (check his blog). He's now thinking of getting a HIM tattoo.
When we were doing serious business on the sales meeting, Peter and Gio went to the Stussy X Boneyard X Neighborhood shop opening and blew all their money on overpriced sneakers and T-shirts. Guess who were paying for beer the rest of the week?
Gio ran into his ex in the middle of the street. For some reason he didn't wanna talk to him and pretended he was passed out.
