You thought we were holding out on you, right? Surprise, we’re not. That’s right, the Pass-Port & Arcade shared heritage caps have arrived! These super fly hats are part of the collaboration between the multinational shred lords, of which a percentage from every purchase goes strait to the ANZAC Poppy Appeal. Then they’ve sprinkled a little sugar on the colab, these hats have been made by the infamous Ebbets Field hat makers. I’ve got one on right now, don’t sleep, they won’t be around for long.
Mr Simple has to be one of Melbourne’s hardest working fellas. It seems like as soon as I finish putting away new products more new things arrive. Well he’s at it again. Our most recent arrivals see Mr Simple step up his chambray game with the new and improved Banks Shirts in blue, red and black chambray. Not only are they made from a lush new cotton chambray, they come with wooden buttons and are now available for $79! Doesn’t get much better than that… Hang on, yes it does. We also have the all new Captain Beanie, which is available in a wide selection of colours and can be yours for $25 a pop. Here’s the best bit though, these beanies are actually made in Australia. Support your local, we’ll see you soon.
Our favourite Aussie skate label and some of the best crew kicking around Auckland, Arcade, have teamed up to bring us their tribute to the ANZACs. Putting aside the Aussie-Kiwi rivalries they remind us of what our boys sacrificed so that we might all enjoy the full benefits of living in such great countries. The ANZAC tee is currently available in navy and black, alongside a bunch of other new Pass-Port tees which are bound to remind you what you love about being an Aussie!
Reading is a good past time. It broadens your intellectual horizons and makes you more attractive to the opposite sex. Luckily there are still some things in the world worth reading, and I don’t just mean this paragraph. Acclaim Magazine is a rad, highly informative, picture filled magazine containing only the things you need to know about. Issue #26 has just arrived. With it’s special cover by Dust La Rock you should ignore everything you have learned up to this point and judge its quality on that.
If there’s one thing that our pals from AIAIAI like to do, then that is to party. They will be throwing a big party this Friday at the Order of Melbourne as a conclusion to the Field Trip creative conference. It’s set to be a banger, so make sure to pop on up on Friday and see what all the fuss is about. In the mean time hit up the Facebook page here for all the important details.
They didn’t have eBay in 1987.
Staying true to their 1980’s love affair Super Awesome are calling out to Victorian & local Surf Coast residents to clear out their garage like they did in ’87 and bring their old unwanted surf and skate stuff down to the pub and sell it.
The Super Awesome Surf & Skate Trash ’N Treasure is happening on the 14th of April at the iconic Airey’s Inlet Pub bringing hoarders, collectors, and fans of rad stuff together to sell, buy and swap their stuff over a few frosties and rock ‘n roll.
Reminiscent of the classic flea market, find your new & old wears, surfboards, magazines, trophies, cameras, posters, skate decks, whatever you don’t want anymore and pack it into your panel van, wagon or adventure vehicle and head down the Great Ocean Road, park up in the huge beer garden and set up for an awesome arvo of Trash ‘N Treasure.
