Red Wing Heritage Celebrates 50 Years With Special Kangatan Release

red-wing-heritage-kangatan-1

In 1963, Red Wing Shoes developed style no. 888 Kangatan out of the desire to craft a superior sport boot.  It was called the SuperSetter and it was originally made for former Red Sox left fielder Ted Williams. The original boot was globally influenced in it’s design, using Australian kangaroo hide leather, a Scottish zug leather vamp, an English overlay pac toe, German speed laces, Norwegian reverse water-repellent welting, Swiss Vibram lug soles and Red Wing, Minnesota, construction.

It is this premium quality that Red Wing Heritage has built into the new style no. 8180, also called the Kangatan boot. Designed in homage to no. 888, this boot is inspired by the unique styling that made the green sport boot so iconic. Built in Red Wing, Minnesota, the 8180 features the brands’s classic Traction Tred outsole, Goodyear Welt construction, nickelled brass equipment and unique green Kangatan Portage leather.

Maestro Dobel Releases Full Tequila Range of Blanco, Reposado and Añejo With Jane Addiction’s Perry Farrell

maestro-dobel-tequlia-perry-farrell-3

Last week Tuesday, we were invited to attend the release of the Maestro Dobel Blanco, Anejo and Reposado tequilas, alongside the signature Dobel Diamante with legendary rocker, Perry Farrell from Jane’s Addiction. Farrell shared his own tips for drinking Dobel and why he turns to the spirit to fuel his creative song-writing.

maestro-dobel-tequlia-perry-farrell-1

Created by Juan Domingo Beckmann Legorreta, a expert at tequila distillation who strayed away from the traditional teachings to venture down a new path of exploration. These newly released editions are a result of eleven generations worth of agave mastery by the Beckmann estate. Each edition utilizes single-estate blends, produced in small batches for unique character, and is then double distilled for unprecedented smoothness. The result is a uncommonly smooth silver, a six-month refined reposado and the ultimate añejo, aged for eighteen months in American white oak then blended with a European reserve just prior to bottling.

by Alex Bursac

Oscar de la Renta at his fashion show at Neiman Marcus-  Chevy C

“My job as a designer is to make a woman feel her very best.” – Oscar de la Renta

Talented. Timeless. Legendary. Elegant. Classic. Oscar de la Renta, today we honor you and your incredible gift to the world of fashion. With a career that spanned decades, your work was never really about you, but your subject — today’s woman, regardless of her age. You never indulged in fleeting trends or shock value. You stayed true to the fundamental purpose of your work — making a woman look and feel her best. You were a true original — one who leaves behind a legacy, a body of work par excellence, and a deeper meaning to the definition of class. You will be missed.

Listen Up!: Drake “How About Now?”

drake-how-about-now

Somehow, a 17-year-old teenager from Marietta, Georgia was able to upload a previously unheard and unreleased Drake track onto Soundcloud over the weekend. How this particular teenager was in possession of this song remains to be seen, though the entire music press is certainly baffled. The Jodeci-sampling track, “How About Now?” has since been removed – which seems to imply that it is indeed from the rapper’s forthcoming new album, Views From The 6 – but you can stream it below. Word on the web is it was produced by Drake’s buddy, Boi 1da.

Beats by Dre Re-Establish Lebron James

beats-by-dre-lebron-james

Basketball fans in Cleveland were so irate four years ago when LeBron James decided to leave the Cavaliers and join the Miami Heat that some took to the streets and burnt his jersey. But now, after winning two NBA titles, he’s back and they are ready to give him anything he may need.

No matter how great James was in his first run with the Cavs, he had a hard time attracting quality players to join a team that had a long history of losing. Now the Cavs are the city’s best hope to break a 50-year title drought. The NFL’s Browns took the top spot in the NFL in ’64.
