HTMIIA-Clothes Tips

Since tonight is the Season Finale of How to Make it in America.  Here’s  a quick rundown on some of the clothes and accessories as seen on the show or on the actors in real life.

Kurt and Bart are the Costume Designers for How to Make it in America.  Their favorite place to shop for the vintage look is at the Fox and Fawn in Brooklyn, NY.  Here they’ve found 80’s costume Jewelry, Vintage Leather wear, Hipster Designer shoes, and Hot brands like YSL and Cacharel.  There’s also a record store in the back of the store.

Ben or as we should say here-Bryan Greenberg personally likes J. Crew, Kenneth Cole and Urban Outfitters. and his personal fav designers include Rag & Bone, Simon Spurr, Dior, and Alexander Wang.

The best overall article I’ve read on Kurt and Bart and the clothes in the show can be read here.  A quick snapshot is:  Kurt and Bart Looked to the Streetz and the Subway for Inspiration.  A typical male characters look would include: Jeans by A.P.C, Jackets from Freeman’s Sporting Club and Sneakers from Gourmet.  I’ve personally seen mostly Nike-no Jordans for some reason, but lots of Dunks.

Dont forget to check out the finale tonight on HBO, I’d write more but I’m late for a trip to the North Shore. Aloha.

 

 

It Doesn’t get Any More “Street” than this!

Yep-It's real!

One of the first QR Code tattoos is on me!  Yep, it’s real, Yep it’s permanent, and Yes I like it!  I still have my stickers and my laminates, but next party I’m at, just flash your QR Scanner on this and Streetzblog.com bound you’ll be in seconds.  It was the first QR Code that Lee Maxwell at Bespoke Custom Tattoo did and he did say it was fun to do but  a bit of a batty eyed session to make, lots of intricate detail.  He used an extra thin needle and it didn’t even hurt a bit!  I’ll get a bigger, better picture later on, but since it’s so new, this is all I had for you today.

I get most of my ink done at Bespoke.  It’s a really fun place to hang and they do great custom pieces.  Check out Bespoke Custom Tattoo on Oahu across the street from Sams and Wal-Mart on Keeaumoku Street.  Lee  did this piece, Tyler and Ryson are also really good at their custom work.  See you in New York in Mid-December.  The Day I get there, I’m heading to Madison Square Garden to see Swedish House Mafia, Jaques La Cont and A-Trak.  Tomorrow I’ll be on the North Shore, hopefully checking out the first Crown of the Triple Crown of Surfing.  I’ll get you an update in about 24 hours.

And don’t forget to watch or DVR – “How To Make it in America” this Sunday night November 20th-Even thought there’s only been about 5 shows, HBO is saying it’s the season finale! Woah! That sure was a quick season.  Hope they come back for Season 3.
