  1. you can't miss Cabazon from the 10 fwy so you dont need an address

    it has a lot of "name brand" stores but I've always been disappointed with the selection and have never bought anything from there. Many labels make goods specifically to be sold in outlet malls which explains why there is so much garbage that you never saw in the real stores. But it's worth a look.

    There is an Off Saks in Ontario Mills Mall (off the 10eastbound at Miliken, right next to fwy) that you could potentially hit up on the way to Cabazon without going out of the way


  2. Saw these at Saks...tried the regular one rinse model. Not impressed at all, especially for $300.

    They also had washed/distressed models, and one with a buckleback which def would have been cooler if it were also a one rinse.

    The fact that the guy that started Von Dutch is associated with this brand is a negative in my book. And the assumption that this will be worn by all the "stars" is the final nail in the proverbial coffin.


  3. among my sartorial influences:

    lifestyle:

    1950s Ted/vintage rocknroll style

    1958-1964 mod (Small Faces, The Action etc)

    1969 Skinhead

    1970+ suedehead/smooths/casuals

    1979 Punk/mod revival (The Jam, The Chords etc)

    Modern designers with these sensibilities (Paul Smith, Ozwald Boateng, Duncan Quinn, etc)

    film:

    Bronco Bullfrog

    Small Faces

    Quadrophenia

    Snatch/Lock Stock

    Gangster No1

    Alfie (both)

    Get Carter (Caine)

    Down with Love


  4. Try Claudio at DNA Groove....he makes excellent mod suits for a good price. Unfortunately you won't be able to try them on but they are very good quality for the $$. If you have a good local tailor to do slight touch up alterations then you'll be set to go

    It will be very hard, if not impossible to find a local tailor that does MTM suits and knows enough of the mod aesthetic to get the details right. I live in LA and you'd think there'd be a tailor like that, but alas, no.

    awesome....put some PB2K behind that and you have a soundtrack to seriously fuck shit up

    all John Lockjaw projects rules ok.

    right now i'm listening to tracks by The Betrayed (hardcore band) and whatever my ipod shuffle brings up, mosts recently songs by The Sounds, The Jam, The Editors, Skrewdriver and Franz Ferdinand


  7. Evisu can be found at American Rag on La Brea or at Up Against the Wall in the Beverly Center...there might be some other small retailers on Melrose that sell Evisu but i wouldnt know which.

    As for sneakers....there's a store next to American Rag that sells a lot of interesting looking sneakers and there are quite a few on the Melrose strip (like Sportie LA's 2 locations)


  8. American Rag is def worth a trip, one of my single fave stores in town and i think you'd at least find the overall selection to be very good even if you don't find the exact pieces you are looking for.

    Traffic has a great selection but their prices seem a tad high, compared to the same item i've seen elsewhere

    personally am not into Michiko Yen or Fake London so can't help you there.

    you might want to check out Alpha on Melrose (west of stores like Fred Segal/Miu Miu, right before the Pacific Design Center... about 20 feet from it)...havent had a chance to check it out but it's supposed to be quite a good store, but i'm not sure exactly what lines they carry.


  9. Hollywood Trading Company on Beverly did last summer.....they were sold out but i dont know if they got any new stock in. that was the only place that sells APC in LA
