AIAIAI Capital Headphone Is Here

All you tram catching, footpath pounding street cats out there probably know just how difficult it can be to find that perfect pair of headphones. Something that sounds great, looks good, won’t get destroyed in your bag. You don’t want the people sitting nearby on the train to freak out because all of a sudden you’re having a nostalgic moment with that Eiffel 65 song leaking out the sides. Can you wear them with a bucket hat or over a beanie? What if it’s raining? A phone call might mean unplugging your headphones and doing that awkward juggle so as not to miss the call. Who’d have thought a musically accompanied commute would be such a tricky thing. Thankfully, the problem solving Dane’s from AIAIAI have been banging their heads together to bring you a solution. Here it is, the Capital. A brief translation of the technical specifications on these means they sound good and are comfortable. They fold up, are water resistant, made from tough stuff and have a mic/remote on the cord. I think tomorrow I’ll take the long way to work.

Bellroy; The New Note Sleeve

It’s a well known fact by now that the crew at Bellroy have a real passion for what they do. They are always coming up with new ways to improve the wallet, which has to be one of the most frequently used items any man can own. So here is one such example; Bellroy’s ever popular Note Sleeve. The Note Sleeve has undergone a some fine tuning since we last saw it. Not only has it it got a new pocket and a tweaked layout, it also comes in a rad new colour, which has been dubbed “Blue Steel”.  This calls for celebration, orange mocha frappachino’s are on me!

Winter time is all about those little things. It’s the marshmallow in your hot chocolate or that towel that’s been hanging on the heater. Well things aren’t about to change any time soon with our latest acquisitions. Keep your toes toasty and your head heated with the new rainbow serpent sock pack from Pass Port as well as the new Super Awesome team beanie. Both in store right now.

New Balance 574 Backpack, Clarks x Oi Polloi & Desert Drille

Hey there Lab fans, it’s been a while. There have been a lot of exciting things happening here over the past little while, with plenty of new stock and even some new shelves! To cut right to the point, here are some of the newest of our new things. First of all is the super fly New Balance 574 Backpack. The crew at NB really hit the nail on the head with this one. Built of something reminiscent of the hard wearing nylon your school bag was made from, featuring buttery suede details. They’ve even put a lash tab in place of the tongue tag! Next we have a couple of Clarks for you. The Clarks x Oi Polloi Wallabee in pale yellow will teach you the definition of soft leather. We have super limited sizes in these,so don’t be a sleeper. Alongside that we have the Clarks Desert Drille, and what can I say… this just looks rad.

New Mr Simple

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.
