Everyone knows we’re a fan of Ashbury’s work and the guys have been getting better and better over the last few years… From the new gear, we wanted to show off something other than just the eyewear. Ashbury puts a tonne of effort into their apparel – they don’t overlook any details. Getting the right cuts, the right cotton and the right printing to bring out the best in the graphics, the results are awesome. Check out a few of the styles above. Our favorite at the office has to be the ‘Catch and Release’ tee (shoutout to Bass Wassup!). Check out a few styles in the shots above and head over here for more.

Noel Sinclair Boyt is a visual artist, skateboarder, and a great friend. When we first met, Noel was visiting Boston during the reign of Coliseum.

I knew Noel first for his skating–the kind of creative style you can see in his video parts are easily reflective of the personality in his artistic pieces. All things considered, anything Noel’s involved in creating is worth checking out.
