We’re happy to receive this week a new line of graphic tees to the store, PUNK MASTERS. Created by Patty Palazzo, a self proclaimed “t-shirt junkie” , in the summer of 2009 as a personal creative outlet and an opportunity to further explore her love of screen printing (every shirt is hand screen printed by Patty herself!).
While working for John Taylor (of Duran Duran fame) at Juicy Men’s, she fell in love with the imagery and aesthetics from the great classic masters and royalty of centuries past, but found fun in taking the imagery, punking it up, and bringing it to the modern world. The shirts do really well for her; so much so that Duran Duran is wearing them on their current tour!
Our new shipment from NAU is an assortment of parkas and recycled wool zip ups made from sustainable fabrics that are great transitional pieces on their own for now; and when the weather dips, excellent for layering under shells and other outwear…
ECOALF is the baby of president and company founder Javier Goyeneche who wanted to create a fully sustainable fashion brand.
In its early stages he had a hard time finding quality fabrics made from mostly recycled material. So using innovation and finding factories to help with his vision he created a line of jackets and accessories made from recycled plastic bottles , discarded fishing nets and coffee grounds (yes, coffee grounds..the process is pretty cool!).
We are carrying a couple down free vests, jackets and parkas. We also have a back pack and gym bag in two colors that are made from old fishing nets!

We’re pleased to announce that we are trying out a new bag company that is actually made right here in Seattle! POROS (named after the god of expediency) came up with one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” ideas that combines function and style by offering three bags (two made from ballistic nylon and one leather) integrated with battery systems to charge your smartphone or tablet! Simply plug in your mobile device, press the button on the Poros Board located inside the bag, and your device begins charging.
As mentioned before we’re carrying three styles with either Apple Lightning or Mirco USB connectors*: the Birch weekender, the Alder briefcase both made from ballistic nylon; and the cowhide Cedarbriefcase.
We love their simplicity and clean looks; and the convenience of not having to worry about phone/tablet drainage, especially during travel!
Alder Ballistic Nylon Briefcase in Black $199
Cedar Leather Briefcase in Black $269
Birch Ballistic Nylon Weekender in Black $269
