Time Consumed...

I would like to announce that I am taking a temporary leave of absence from Piff's Place. This is nothing permanent, so please bear with me while I attend to some important business.

I shall return to my regular blog duties very shortly.

But in the meantime......

Known for their notable & well-priced offerings, Korean-brand LIFUL have released their Fall 09 Collection. What immediately caught my attention was the U.M.S. Leather Blouson Jacket. Featuring a nice Black outer shell with a Pure Blue lining, it's a must cop for anyone wanting a nice "look" for the coming season.

For additional pics & to purchase....visit The LIFUL Site.

I checked the clock on my wall and noticed, it's time for another one of my lovely fits.

Today I decided to wear my Orlando colorway Nike Penny 1s. This was Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway's first signature shoe and till this day, one of my favorites. They should retro these bad boys every 5 years. lol

Vans Go Native...

Vans continues to tinker with Native American culture. This time they drop The Fringe Pack consisting of two pairs of Sk8 Hi's. Using the moccasin style made very popular in Japan, the Sk8 Hi's offer stitched toe boxes, buttery suede, fringe details, and traditional embroidery. Two colorways are now available...Black & Light Brown. I want both of these BADLY...but something tells me the U.S. won't be seeing these anytime soon.

ABC Mart has both shoes in limited quantities. If your looking for something hot & can do the conversion....knock yourself out.

This is one dope ass collection, coming from Triumvir. I might have to pick up a couple pieces.

Mixing its strong influences of history that have accented past collections with a variety of films and animated features, Triumvir has created a post-apocalyptic world where the old fuses with the new. Entitled “Blind Faith”, the Fall Collection references to the Roman Civil Wars era of Constantine the Great, who adorned, for reasons disputed by scholars, symbols of Christ (Chi-Roh or Labarum) upon his warriors’ shields, standards, and later his own helmet. Fictional works referenced by Triumvir, including Fist of the North Star and Mad Max, are set during times of chaos and anarchy where law and order are subjective and the cruel reign over the weak.

This sets ground for the Winter Collection, “Hell is for Heroes”, which also focuses on the Knights Hospitallers– a Christian military order during the time of the Crusades. Through clothes designed for the protagonist (Blind Faith) and the antagonist (Hell is For Heroes), Triumvir tells an epic tale of two male characters, who live in an abstract world that is a blend of all these. With both of these new lineups, Triumvir moves its production of Cut & Sew back to the United States for better quality control, while also implementing a minor adjustment to the t-shirt program by switching over to a slimmer fitting cut. “Blind Faith” looks to drop Friday, October 16th while “Hell is for Heroes” drops on Friday, November 13th, 2009

That Good 9Five...

Inspired by their iconic time in skateboarding, 9Five Eyewear has dropped a collection that appeals to the skateboarding obsessed, crate digging niche that continues to thrive to this day. Their 2009 fall/holiday collection features a handful of different designs including the Cult Classic, The Blocks, DM-83, Butters & The Major. What most impressed me was their mixing of classic styles with contemporary lines. The end result is a very appealing.

For an in-depth look at their Fall/Winter collection, check out 9Five Eyewear's Blog

Old Skool Indeed...

I'ma have to say BIG UPS to HUF on this one....They came thru big-time.

The San Francisco-based retailer/brand has collaborated with Vans on a set of classic Old Skools. The final result is Str8 Piff. Using 3 colorways (Black, Navy & Cardianal Red) the HUF x Vans Old Skools feature a suede body with grain leather heel-cups. Custom printed triangle pattern on the midsoles, & custom woven HUF labels/embroidery were added to each shoe to provide an extra effect.

The HUF x Vans Old Skools will be available exclusively through HUF San Francisco and HUF Los Angeles on Saturday, October 17th, 2009. Retail will be $85 USD. I think I need all 3!

KickChick's Fits!

KickChick here!

I figured I give you guys what you want, another of my great fits. lol

I'm wearing the Air Jordan 6 Rings in the concord colorway. Yeah, I know you purists hate Jordan fusions. But you can't deny that this shoe is one of the best fusions made. That classic concord X1 colorway with the clear soles? That's a winner in my book. Add a pair of my trademarked skinnies, and I'm good to go.

Mind Lapse...

Peep the un-released video of Common's single "Universal Mind Control" featuring Pharrell Williams.

I actually liked this video better than the original version. I just couldn't get with the sci-fi crap....It didn't fit the feel of the song to me. Plus Skateboard P & his Wayfarers are actually in this version. RICH...

Like Wood?

Oakley has finally unveiled their Frogskins designed by skate icon Eric Koston. Featuring dark gray tinted lenses & a subtle wood grain pattern on the frames, these Frogskins are sure to be a hit for anyone looking for a nice timeless pair of shades.

Expect a worldwide drop beginning November 1st, 2009, including releases at Oakley flagship stores. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a pair of these.

NB or BS...

Hey...Does anybody remember when Baltimore was known as the Home of the Air Force One?

Seems kinda funny since everybody wants to wear nothing but New Balance now. 993s, 574s, 1500s, & the almighty all sizes & colorways.

I'ma stay true thou. No NBs for me. In the words of Martin Lawrence, before I sell-out...I'd get the hell-out!
