Do the Relax

Over at Fact Magazine, these guys - King Midas Sound - created THIS MIX live and in-studio. If you've ever tried to clean your ears out with syrup, you'll recognize this sound immediately. Otherwise, give it a minute or less. You'll be hooked, immersed and relaxed.

Holiday outfits - prepare for ignition! Yes, we've just received a new delivery of Toodlebunny, which I was able to photograph extensively, unlike the last time, when half of it sold before I could turn on the camera.

"Sin Will Find You Out"

Large-scale, grommet-pierced canvases sucked flush to the wall, exuding brilliant colours and patterns showcase beautifully Patrick Lundeen's skills as a painter, while the subject matter, an unmistakable mixture of pop-culture and religious iconography shouts (screams perhaps?) playful contradiction. I found this show to be very inspiring.

Now showing (Nov 19-Dec 19) at Skew Gallery: "Sin Will Find You Out". Works by Patrick Lundeen.

New Arrivals: WRATH ARCANE

Jeans - arguably THE wardrobe staple for the casually dressed guy, of whom there are many (myself included) comfortably going about their denim-clad business in this fair city of ours, can be as stylish as they are functional (and indestructible), making quality denim well-worth the investment. Here's a great example. From Wrath Arcane, a label known for its vision and quality, comes this no-frills, straight leg, made in America, raw selvage indigo denim. These jeans are tough, clean and simple, which is what we like. Get them before they're gone.  

straight-leg indigo selvage denim by Wrath Arcane: $189-

On the Way: FIVELEFT

Worth will soon be home to the new "box wallet" by Vancouver's fiveleft. As you can see from the images below, these hand-dyed wallets have a very unique appearance, as they've been processed with found objects such as bicycle spokes and car emblems. Along with the "box wallet", we'll also be restocking Worth's favorite "pop up" wallet, which is very slim and perfect for holding cash & cards.
