I came across this film project and was blown away! The guys over at Zero Films are making a film about one mans journey as a door gunner in Vietnam. Those Vets were treated like shit when they came home, which is fucked up, but this film is a step in the right direction to getting their stories told. These are epic stories. Click this image below where you can get the details and even help out if you can. This is fucking bad ass! Buy them a round of Go Go Juice (aka what you would spend at the bar for a Friday night of drinks with friends.)
An Apparel Project By 30SECOUT and Oxcart
You guys have liked what I've made over the past year, so I'm gonna keep making shit, because it's working. Specifically, art and apparel. I usually throw the words "we" and "us" around in the emails and on social media, but the truth of the matter is...30SECOUT is just me, for the most part. I work out of my garage and a bedroom in my house. I recently moved the bulk of my inventory into a warehouse to free up some room for a better art studio than my dusty fucking garage and to focus on expanding the apparel line.
No fucking shortcuts. We're making blue jeans. Right now. In the USA. By we, I mean in coordination with a locked on guy named Mark. He's the owner of OXCART out in Los Angeles. He knows jeans and we're making the best pair we possibly can for you guys. Simple, very comfortable and not tactical. You're going to be stoked!
Big old roll of "special blend" denim! This is the secret sauce we are using. It's a special type of denim, blended for movement and comfort.
Below pic is our raw pattern swatches. Making apparel in the USA has been a dream of mine and it's coming true. We're really stoked.
I'll keep you guys up to date here on our Stoke blog as we approach the product release day.
Thanks for checking out our work!
Got my tshirts, they're fantastic. Soft and perfect fit. Thank you for not skimping and making janky tshirts! Trying to tag you in all kinds of shit on IG so we get you out there! Very proud to wear my shirts, patches and stickers.
I have the dumbest hero story you are likely to hear this month. I ordered the "No one is coming" stickers because of my daughter. She is 16 and was waiting all day in the heat to go to a concert. While waiting, she and her friend noticed a dog on the roof of a nearby house that was being renovated. After a little snooping around, they realized that the dog was stuck up there and couldn't get down. They called the police but didn't get much of a response. They called animal control and were told to call the police. They called a couple other animal rescue places and nothing. My daughter finally told her friend, "No one is coming. It's up to us." No joke. Those are the exact words she told me. They engaged some neighbors, found someone with a ladder, and they got the dog off the roof. Poor thing drank two bowls of water right away. They fed him and left him with a neighbor.
So in my mind, that makes them big damn heroes. When she goes back to school next month, there will be one of your stickers on her laptop.
Not earth changing, but I thought I would share. (The patches and other stuff is for me. Been meaning to get a few.) Hope it brought you a smile.
