All too often in today's society people are forced into pressures by others to "keep up with the Jones's". Street Wear was originally meant as an alternative to the pricier luxury brands of the era it emerged in for youth who also sought to be fashionable but couldn't afford the high costs. Today it has turned into the exact opposite. Teenagers are faced with having to buy over-priced brands because they are seen as a status symbol. Often the less fortunate kids are viewed ass less cool because they cannot compete due to economic differences. From Geek To Urban is a welcome solution to this long time problem."FGTU’s fresh and vibrant designs feature the spectacular created from the simplistic, and
embrace the multiple facets of everyone’s individuality. A brand more than ten years in the making, FGTU is an affordable alternative to pricier yet comparably fashionable labels." FGTU is showing people that you can't put a price on style. Here's A Look Inside: From Geek to Urban.
In fashion nowadays, it is rare to come across a brand that is solely committed to uplifting other individuals. Krownz & Kingz is focused on letting other people know that they are Kings and Queens on this earth, income or background. Recently I got a chance to chop it with Jordan Gardner the creator and owner of Krownz & Kingz to bring you "A Look Inside: Krownz & Kingz".

Yesterday I came across a dope brand by the name of Do You Not Them. Their very name is a great embodiment of what a lifestyle brand should be. Their whole concept is centered around being themselves and following their own dreams, while encouraging others to do the same. I like that they're a focused group of individuals who are creating their own successes. They aren't waiting on someone to endorse them and do the work for them. Hopefully I'll be able to get DYNT on an edition of "A Look Inside" for you guys. Make sure you check them out on doyounotthem.com and follow them on twitter @doyounotthemco.
Sir Michael Rocks drops the visuals for "Too Short Back" off of the recent Premier Politics with Tris Man and Shorty K. As always there's some dope fits in this video (saks fifth, vintage polo, etc.) The lovely Tennille was also killing that Hermes crew neck. The black and white gives this video a Craig Mack "Flava in ya ear rmx" feel. I'm still ready for some word on when Special Edition Grand Master Deluxe is set to drop.
Today's edition of "A Look Inside" brings to you The Urban Relaxation. "Urban Relaxation is Is A Movement, Originally Formed By A Group Of Original Individuals, That Promotes Not Caring About What Other People Think, Or Have To Say About You. Code Name Urban Comes From Our Style. & Relaxation Promotes Our Vybe." Recently I connected with founder J $tash, to gain some insight into the movement and brand. The Urban Relaxation is a very original brand, making bold statements through their clothing. They steer clear of following in the footsteps of other street wear brands, and fearlessly blaze their own path into our culture. I bring to you "A Look Inside: The Urban Relaxation"

This week I've been doing a lot of searching for a lot of new upcoming brands to showcase in my "A Look Inside" posts. Sure I could post about some of the more established brands that I've worked with, but I feel there needs to be some light shined on young ambitious brands making their way into the world. The brand featured in this post is everything stated above: new, young, and very ambitious."The Left Field Loop, a music, video production & clothing company, created to reflect innovation, creativity & inspire others to think outside the box." They have only been in fruition for two weeks but already they've managed to put out some very creative threads. Recently I've had a chance to chop it up with their creator J'Nay to bring you "A look Inside: The Left Field Loop".
