Superfishal Earthquake Hoodie in Brown released by Upper Playground

Upper Playground favorite Jeremy Fish releases his Earthquake Hoodie this week with his signature style and storytelling capacity. Jeremy Fish explains the inspiration behind this art like this:

“According to the California natives, the reason we have earthquakes is because the land is built on the backs of giant turtles. Earthquakes happen when the turtles argue, and their shells grind on each other. Turtle tectonics!” -JF

1973 Sierra Designs Catalog in the Oakland Museum of California Collection

6161b1eef812 PM.png 1973 Sierra Designs Catalog in the Oakland Museum of California Collection vancouver the catalog sierra designs shot 2012 02 23 people oakland museum flash expedition california

A cool find. In the Oakland Museum of California collection is the 79-page, 1973 Sierra Designs catalog. As the museum notes of one of the great Bay Area outdoors brands, the catalog is “printed partially in full color and partially black and white. Many of the photographs in the catalog were taken as part of a 10-day hiking expedition up the West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, which was organized by Sierra Designs. The first part of the catalog is a narrative of this expedition, with journal entries of two of the people on the expedition. Featured in the second half of the catalog are items, mostly illustrated by line drawings, which were manufactured by Sierra Designs, including sleeping bags, jackets, climbing equipment, camping accessories, footwear, tents, and backpacks.” (ocma)

One of those really, really good ideas from one of the best men’s label we can think of. Band of Outsiders has brought in the embodiment of California art, Ed Ruscha, to be the face of their Spring 2012 line. The shoot was done outside Ruscha’s studio in Culver City, California, and it makes us want to be wearing a skinny tie more.
