Emma Cook limited edition range for Fred Perry

Via:Retro To Go

British designer Emma Cook is the latest name to produce a limited edition range for Fred Perry, the pick of which is this polo shirt.

It references the classic Fred Perry polo, but adds some length and a wide neck, as well as a take on the Fred Perry laurel around that neck. It retails for £80.

Also so in a range are two dresses and a particularly nasty hoodie - you can see them all on the Fred Perry site.

Find out more on the Fred Perry Store website

Tyler and our Bedroom - Early Nineties.

Back in June, Tyler posted this blog about this upcoming Utah Ska documentary (HERE) Anyhow, I was contacted this by morning by the man doing do this, Brandon Smith, about being involved. So I checked out his blog and I scrolled down and found a post about our old friend Raquel, which also featured a couple of her photos. One of them was this one: This my brother in our room in the early 90's. Look at those old flyers!!! They span from LA, OC, Las Vegas and Utah shows. Some of those are flyers I made. Oh the memories...

Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings

I stumbled across Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings not too long ago and I was blown away that a contemporary band today could have captured that truly authentic soul sound. BLOWN AWAY! I heard their cover of Janet Jackson's, "What have you done for me lately" and it still sounds like they did it 20 years prior to Miss Jackson. Then it all clicked when I heard that producer Mark Ronson wrangled in the Dap-Kings for Amy Winehouse's last 2 albums (which also blew me away). So it all makes sense. Now it's like...Amy who?

So, this morning I am just tickled pink to find this the first official video of theirs (that I've seen) other than live footage. It's done so right! Filmed with two vintage TV cameras bought on E-Bay for $50 dollars each. Ladies and gentlemen, I present this generation's soul salvation:
