Crain’s reports that “the City’s Council’s Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises unanimously approved the apparel store’s plans to expand its location” by a whopping 76,200 square feet. Next up: the proposal goes to the Committee on Land Use and then to the full Council for the official O.K. If approved, Century 21 would be allowed to occupy the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors of the building, which used to be offices but are now vacant. Know what that means? The discount store would be seven floors deep.
Мишка x Outlier Pivot Plaid Button Down Shirts ($84.00)
Мишка + Outlier Say
A few years back Outlier re imagined the button down shirt. They took it apart and rebuilt it in a way that was conducive to riding your bike, while remaining fashionable. With its innovative seam construction, the pivot offers free range movement without the restrictions usually associated with trying to ride in a men’s dress shirt. You could now reach forward on your bike without the sleeves riding up on you or the back untucking from your pants.”

#mfdoom On June 8th DOOM and Akomplice Clothing are linking up for a “surprise” release.
DOOM and Akomplice have come together to release one of the most innovative and intriguing collabs of the year. The release is being kept a mystery, just like DOOM’s identity is. The project will only be available for purchase for a 1-day (24-hour) window on June 8th. The crate, which is nailed shut, features Ak / Doom logos laser-inscribed on its lid and comes with a custom designed steel crowbar to pry open the mini crate. The project is available exclusively at the Akomplice online store. The contents of the box will not be revealed to those who have purchased it until delivered and opened. Knowing Doom and Akomplice, this is sure to be an interesting surprise.
