1. Levi’s – Orange Tab "Party in Your Pants" Topanga Edit

    “Throughout the ’60s and ’70s, Levi Strauss and Company produced youthful and affordable sportswear items to accompany its range of stylish Orange Tab jeans.” This line of affordable, trend-driven pieces has recently resurfaced thanks the clever folks over at Levi’s Vintage Clothing and what better way to celebrate the relaunch than to throw a “Party in Your Pants” on a steamy SoCal summer day.

  2. Escape + Explore: American River Camp Stylez

    Coming down from my Outdoor Retailer high was rough, but I managed to overcome the pain by hitting up the American River for some choice car camping with a bunch of top-notch friends. The particular campground we chose, located in Coloma, is a very special place because it is literally a few hundred yards away from Sutter’s Mill, the site where James W. Marshall first discovered gold in California in 1848. This massive discovery, just a stone’s throw away from where we set up shop, eventually led to a little movement called the “California Gold Rush”, you may have heard of it. We also happened to have a front row seat to the Perseids Meteor Shower, which was in full swing on August 11th-12th, so basically we won on every level.

  3. #AFOMFT @ ORSM13

    This is my first #AFOMFT on Range. #AFOMFT stands for “A Few of My Favorite Things”. Don’t act like you knew that because I just made it up.

I would like to harness the energy of this new found power-tag by using it to highlight some of the key S/S14 items that caught my eye at Outdoor Retailer this past week.

  4. On Our Radar: Victory Press

    Over the years I have gotten more than a few calls from people wanting to “pick my brain” about apparel and trends, specifically in the outdoor industry. One day, out of the blue, I got one of those calls from my homie Jonathan Cammisa. I knew that I liked Jon as soon as I met him. We worked together at Freemans back in the day and as soon as I realized he was from Philly, I was totally sold. All of the best and the worst people I have met in my life come from Philly, so I knew I had a 50/50 chance of becoming lifelong friends with him. So far, so good.

  5. Vans OTW x Outlier Bedford Release Event

    On Monday night, Vans OTW and Outlier hosted an event at Kinfolk Studios in Brooklyn to celebrate the release of their new collaboration the OTW Bedford Sneaker. After working with OTW on some serious concepts, Tyler and Abe from the Brooklyn-based apparel company Outlier were able to incorporate their most celebrated fabric, Supermarine Cotton, to OTW’s Bedford style, making it extremely breathable and highly water resistant. A perfect combo for riding or skating in the city.
