If you’re like a lot of people that love Ralph Lauren when news of the Polo Bears limited return surfaced you hurried to make sure you had the funds to scoop. With Retail at about 320 USD with tax these things aren’t cheap and so some had to put off the purchase for a week or so only to find out Macy’s.com would also carry the sweater, and get this, 50 dollars cheaper.
Golden you thought, and maybe you’ll be able to sweeten the deal with an extra 25% off, even better. So you make the purchase online or by phone and chill out happy that you snagged a sweater about 100 bucks cheaper than RL.com was selling for. So a few days pass and your package arrives, only, wait a minute. What the, whats this? Its a Polo Bear sweater alright, but what happened tie? Where is the red sweater? The detailed crest on his jacket? The red sweater around his waist? You even notice he’s not as smug and his Khaki’s are now grey. Why is my bears ears droopy? %$^&, this isn’t what I ordered you scream to yourself. Well my friend, you are correct. It seems as though Macy’s is carrying an alternate Polo Bear Sweater not as detailed as the one on RL.COM (but are advertising the RL.COM version) No, the Macy’s version looks more like the 2001 version (in red to the left of the photo above). Check out the photo’s above and let us know if you’ve purchased the Macy’s.com version.

The inaugural Kids Rock! Runway Show kicked off September 11th NYC on a very humid and hot night at Grand Central Terminal. Hosted by Amare Stoudemire, the show was dedicated to benefiting the Amar’e Stoudemire Foundation and nonprofit organization K.I.D.S.
Along with Stoudemire’s children, celebrity kids that walked the runway included: Carmelo and La La Anthony’s son Kiyan, Lil’ Jon’s son DJ Young Slade, Kelly Bensimon’s daughter Thaddeus Ann, Sherri Shepherds son Jeffrey Tarplay, Derek Jeter’s nephew, the children of New York Yankee’s CC Sabathia and Angie Martinez’s son Niko. The kids sported the hotest looks of the season for the little ones from Brand Jordan, Nike, Nike SB, Converse and Levi’s. Check out some fliks from the night including myself and the homey J. Conroy with Lil’ Jon and the very lovely Angie Martinez. If you want to see the entire show check out the DeFY. New York Youtube Channel.
The school year is riiiiiight around the corner and if you are entering your senior year (or have a child entering their senior year) then you’re probably already thinking Homecoming and Prom. For the fella’s, a clean classic shirt and tie or Tux will work and if you want to stand out you’ll probably throw on a set of the craziest sneakers; a pair of Yeezy’s, Jordan XI’s, maybe even a pair of Etonic Akeems if you really know your kicks but for the ladies, things are a tad more complex. On one hand you wanna stand out and look good but you don’t want to look like a World Star video vixen in the making. After thats said and done, price is always an issue as is quality cause lets face it, this dress might very well be worn several times. No sweat, you can get a jump start for your dress shopping (or your daughters dress shopping (or if your man is into the Rodman look dress shopping for him)) and head on over to DressFirst. Prom dresses and homecoming dresses are up to 60% off with free shipping (not including everything else available on the site that is up to 80% off) and so much good stuff to choose from.
Fans and friends of KESH showed up at the East Houston St American Apparel store to celebrate the launch of a 12 piece capsule collection. The CEO and Founder of AA (Dov Cherney) made a rare guest appearance alongside the ATL Twins, Ben Pundole, Chelsea Leyland, Dev Hynes, Jenne Lombardo, Kilo Kish and Natalia Kills to name a few. The collection consists of a mixture of both mens and women’s pieces incorporating classic silhouettes with KESH’s shapes and self portraits in her sig black and white color scheme with a limited run only available on the site and in select cities (including LA, London, Paris, Tokyo, Stockholm, Berlin and Seoul) with prices ranging from $34 for a hat to $88 for a jacket. KESH and AA came strong with these pieces which could easily be framed and put in a gallery as they could be worn. They also conjure up memories of the late 80′s early 90′s house/dance/Hip Hop fashion scene with the collection looking like something you might have spotted on the members of C+C Music Factory,Daisey Dee or even Salt N Pepa for that matter.
