ALWAYS DOWNTOWN-

Thanks to everyone who came by the Outpost for the Zak Downtown vs. Reason Always Down t-shirt release event last week. A few pieces are still available for purchase in our online shop.

We’ve been seeing a lot of this guy Lenny Emery recently.

Dre and his homegirl just graduated from college this week. Andre has been helping out with the design and development of some of our new items and we’re all the better for it.

RIVER AVE BLUES-

Tonight we’re in the Bronx to kick off another season of Yankees baseball.

The home team lost tonight but we did get to finally try out Lobels famous steak sandwich. We gave it three stars, but for stadium food it might as well be a Michelin rating.

Trickle down effect. Today we posted some of our favorite baseball inspired Reason graphics on the Reason Tumblr at http://www.reasonclothing.tumblr.com – Don’t forget to follow us there too.

#THROWBACKTHURSDAY (PART 2)-

Turns Throwback Thursday was a hit last time around so this week we’re back at it again. Here’s a new selection of some throwbacks from the back catalog of Reason blog posts dating back to 2007 and 2008.

Scott Marceau shot a fun look-book for us for Holiday 2008-

lookbook4.jpg

Remember our Dub-Frequency Reason x Homeroom pop-up shop in Echo Park Los Angeles called The Basement?

Still one of the best jackets we’ve ever made. The midnight bomber jacket in this melton wool construction was the mega hit back in 2008. That print on the inside lining is an arial shot of the earth with New York City right at the center.

The lookbook that launched a thousand blog posts. And back when Price wore all over print t-shirts.

Had the pleasure of meeting Brian (known to the world as the artist KAWS) in 2007 at an event for Rob Walker’s Buying In book.

At the time this was the coolest thing that had ever happened to us. Fall 2007, bootleg Reason New Era caps flood the online stores of the world. This New Wave cap was one of the best fakes around.

Nick Diamond at the launch for our Diamond Supply Co. vs. Reason tee in NY. Still one of the most popular collabs we’ve ever done, selling through the entire order and shutting down our online store in mere minutes.

VICTOR!! One of our in-house artists who has since gone on to work doing comics for the New Yorker and creating art for various prestigious advertising agencies. Creator of some of our most classic Reason artwork ever including Bored Of Education, the NYC tee, The Reason Baseball team logo and many many more.

Mos Def and Talib Kweli at Magic. Tablib was rockin’ our No Pattern vs. Reason New Era cap at the show so I stopped him for a picture and a quick word. Turned out he and I went to the same high school in Brookyln and he had been a loyal buyer and follower for some years already.

Imagine performing for 100,000 people at a trade show in Las Vegas for one of your first major DJ gigs. No big deal right? Sometimes in a tough situation I’ll wonder why I never see Price sweat and then I remember shit like this.

Boom-shaka-laka. The day I walked out of the office and saw this pile of boxed orders ready to go out was the exact moment when I thought there might be some real potential for our homegrown little operation to be something big. This was also when we made custom blue Reason wrap it up tape.

Matthew Salacuse for Reason. Without a doubt our most popular collaboration of all time. I can’t even post a photo of the tee for legal reasons, but I can say that it featured a never before seen photo of Ol’ Ditrty Bastard taken right before his passing, and that it sold out instantly, and that we were sued for making it.

Back in 2008 our friend Scott was just a bright-eye’d up and coming artist in the rap game coming to unwind in our office to play us a new song he had coming out called Day N’ Nite. A lot has happened since then.

August 2008 at the Magic Trade Show. Leaving that neon sign at storage in Las Vegas is one of my biggest regrets ever.

T-WORLD NEW YORK-

Today we finally got our hands on the new hardcover issue of T-world. We were photographed and wrote our segment for the book over a year ago and are thrilled to finally see the finished product.

While most brands took the standard interview Q and A route, we really didn’t want to do the same old interview for the ten thousandth time, so we requested to contribute an original article instead.

We wanted to do something funny and interesting while still relevant to Reason so our concept was to play off our Go Love Your Own City graphic and write a list of our Reason’s To Go Love Your Own City. We pitched the idea to Eddie from T-world and he approved it, noting that Tony Arcabascio (founder of ALIFE) would have the only other non-interview feature in the book.

For now the book can be purchased at select finer book stores and magazine shops around the world and through http://www.t-world.com.au/

Our spread.
Within the next few weeks we will post an actual scan so you can read it for yourself.

Then straight off to the VIP launch party in SoHo. Bumped into our old friend Micah who runs the brand ONLY.

Lots of cool original artwork on the walls. That’s the back of Tony’s head below-

GET THE THERAFLU-

It’s officially Spring in New York. Overcoats are being traded in for tank tops, white sneakers have overthrown Red Wings in the shoe department, and no one drinks hot coffee anymore.

The Outpost is well equipped with Spring goods, and good guys, like Herman, who runs a popular blog called Doobybrain-

NEW THIS WEEK-

Best part about doing these shop updates is that every item I mention as being a favorite usually sells out before I get a chance to send out the post. Follow @reasonclothing on Instagram and Twitter for live updates every day chronicling new product as it hits the shop.

This 1970’s vintage Timex watch for example. Gone.

And the current staff favorite, the double cross pullover french terry hood. Features a cool oversized hood that crosses in front for a unique look, raglan sleeves, and a kangaroo pocket sewn over the bottom rib. Zero logos or branding outside, just a great cool looking summer hoodie. Hardly your average sweatshirt.
