It’s been a little while since I did a IT’S ALL ABOUT THEM BOYS post but now I’m back with some awesome stuff for all you male readers or for you girls who want maybe surprise your BF’s with a gift from time to time.
It’s been quite some time since I did a post but even longer since I mentioned iPhones in a IT’S ALL ABOUT THEM BOYS post. However, I found these amazing iPhone cases ever. The company that makes these cases is based out of San Fransisco and their name is IndieCases.
IndieCases works with a a wide range of professional artists who each week submit their iPhone case designs to IndieCases, and then later on in the same week they post different designs on their Tumblr. The design that get the most likes/rebloggs will then be made into limited quantities and can be bought at their web shop.
The designs are very indie, hipsterish and artsy hence the name IndieCases but non the less these cases look awesome. And also, they’re not that expensive which is a bonus!
Jun Watanabe x Lightning Bolt Camo Chukkas
The superior japanese designer Jun Watanabe has teamed up with Lightning Bolt to make a pair of Chukkas. People often see the word Chukka next to Vans, but not this time around. What Jun Watanabe and Lightning Bolt have made to this Chukka is impressive! They come in a green and purple color way, all covered in a less serious looking camo-pattern. The shoe is available at the japanese store ZOZOEPROZE.
Naked and Famous Glow In The Dark Raw Denim
The Canadian brand Naked & Famous who’s famous for their unique jeans style and who’s always using a very rare range of japanese fabrics have now launched their latest jeans. But guys, this is not your regular pair of jeans. It’s a pair of raw jeans that GLOW IN THE DARK.
Have you ever seen that? That’s probably the coolest thing I’ve seen in the jeans industry.
Just charge them up in the light (can be natural sunlight or artificial bulb light) and then shut the lights and watch ‘em glow! The jeans will also glow intensely under UV light (aka Blacklight), so if you wear the jeans in a club with a blacklight, your pants will appear neon green! Even the selvedge edges glow so flip up your cuff to flip people out!
Available NOW at Barneys New York and Barneys COOP nationwide. (Soon to be on www.barneys.com as well.) Not sure if they are or will be sold in Montreal. But if you Naked & Famous jeans people are reading this maybe you can let us Montrealers know if you will be or already are selling these awesome jeans here in Monty.
Bluelounge MiniDock for Apple Devices
The award-winning international design studio Bluelounge is pretty well known for their sleek constructions, productions and ideas. Something that really defines this company for their sleekness is one of their latest pieces, the MiniDock for Apple devices. You simply attach the MiniDock on-to the original USB-charger-piece that you get with your Apple products, and suddenly you got a really nice dock station without the long white cable that most of the time is in the way and looks kind of ugly.

Air Force 1 Premium Hyperfuse
What’s fresh? This is fresh!
Nike’s super light-collection finally takes on our most favorite model, the Air Force Ones. This time around they come in three neon colors, green/yellow, blue and red’ish. The shoes came out very recently in Europe, so hurry up if you want to have a pair!
My favorite color must be the red-ish one. I love it!
IT’S ALL ABOUT THEM BOYS would not be complete if their was no sick car feature included in the post. So this week let’s talk about this hot-ness! Tada! A wild Porsche appears! Not just any Porsche, it happens to be the next release of a follow up to the 997 model.
It has some new lines, LED lamps and more small changes here and there. If you want to see it in real life all you have to do is hop on a plane to Frankfurt next month or you can just enjoy these pics. Up to you!
Nike SB Blazer High “Low End Theory”
After seeing A Tribe Called Quest-inspired Jordans release awhile back, it should come as no surprise that Nike intends to continue the Low End Theory-inspired designs. This time around the popular Nike SB Blazer gets the special rap group makeover with details like a red insole and red swoosh, alongside a green tongue tag and green laces. The shoe’s suede upper includes Low End Theory-esque all-over graphics that are featured on both sides. This quickstrike release can be found at select Nike retailers, including Premier. I am not crazy about this shoe but I get why some people will go bananas over it, so to each their own right?
A Bathing Ape BAPEX Clear Watches
I think that one’s outfit is not complete if you are not wearing a watch. Everyone should wear a nice watch! I’m just saying…either way if you need one or you love watches as much as I do and you just need to add one to your already exsisting collection here is a fresh one.
New BAPEX by A Bathing Ape watches have finally hit the BAPE New York and BAPE.com stores. The BAPEX CLEAR watches offer casual yet formal appearances meant for everyday occurrences and any outfit whether you’re heading to the office or starting the weekend. These ‘light’ versions of the BAPEX CLEAR watches come designed with dark metal bands and either a red or black face featuring the A Bathing Logo logo in the back. HOOOOOOT!
Peter Gregson for Coca Cola
Girls drink Diet Coke or Coke Zero but since this is a post ALL ABOUT THEM BOYS lets talk about plain, old, regular Coca Cola. In case you haven’t heard, Coca-Cola is doing everything it can to remind you that the historic soft drink is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year.
Among the many larger names that have been commissioned to work with Coke in celebration, a sleeper hit has been the redesigns of Peter Gregson. A Serbian artist, Gregson referenced vintage Coca-Cola advertisements from the 1920s and 1930s to revive an old-school aesthetic while still staying true to Coke’s modern, bright red aluminum-plated image. What do you think? I think I would want to have one of each can just on display in my house.

CLOT x Converse 2011 Fall/Winter Chuck Taylor All Star Low
CLOT and Converse are once again at the center of a collaborative effort taking place on the Chuck Taylor All Star Low. Two different colors follow a subdued path to design with a canvas and suede materials. The most interesting aspect of the sneaker is seen with a gum-colored stripe of rubber on the toe.A simple touch of branding is applied to the heel.
Both will be available through JUICE Stores across Asia starting August 26 and on a global level on September 6 via Converse First String dealers. Woot! Woot!
Casio G-Shock x adFunture Master of G Figure Series
Chinese toymakers adFunture were a pivotal part in the promotion of Casio G-Shock’s SHOCK THE WORLD 2011 campaign. Their craft was put on display thanks to a collection of four figures, dubbed the Master of G collection. The watches come with the ability to integrate with some of Casio G-Shock’s iconic styles for an interesting piece of cohesive design.
