Loving the new collection from our friends at Actual Pain. They have really upped their game and are now getting into the denim game. I definitely need to get a pair and perhaps a pom beanie. Much more to check out at the web store.

Some Macafama tees are on eBay. I always liked this design and if you do as well then you better swoop, because a little birdie told me these might be the last of their kind. For collectors sake, grab one.
Earlier this year Tokyo Fixed announced their collaboration with Andreas Samuelsson. Since then, they have been busy teaming up with some of their friends across the UK including Il Soigneur and Cyclodelic, to turn Andreas’ pattern into a range of t shirts, a cap, and a musette.
Such a great collection!

Today we are proud to announce the release of Hell On Wheels, a collaboration that has been in the works for over a year. With Seattle being such a tight-knit community it was only a matter of time before we teamed up with T.J. Cowgill of Actual Pain. His clothing line has picked up a lot of attention in the last couple of years and we are honored to be a part of his Summer collection (set to release any day now). You can get your hands on several different styles of Hell On Wheels, including tees, tanks and crewneck sweatshirts. They are now available at the Zlog Boutique and will be carried at Actual Pain retailers.
Levi’s has recently been working on a cycling inspired collection. This video breaks down the many features of the 511 Commuter jeans that should be hitting Levi’s stores soon (available on the web now). If these skinny jeans are a hit, I hope they have the foresight to make them in several cuts (514, 520, 501?) to accommodate those horse-legged cyclists along with the skinny dudes.
The Anorak uses a pullover construction with two way side ventilation. The magnetic front piece is fully adjustable so you can protect your neck in the style of your liking. The 3XDry Cotton Linen fabric has a sturdy hand feel that combines the soft touch of cotton with the crisp handle of linen and the unparalleled performance of Schoeller’s 3XDry treatment.
The wait is over! Tanks are re-stocked in the Zlog Boutique. Head over and snag one before they are all gone.
Outlier can do no wrong, these field green chinos look great!
The Outlier 60/30 Chino in Field Green. Limited edition Independence Day release.A superior chino. Simple, incredibly comfortable and well suited for the rain, grit and motion of real life. Pants you’ll want to pull out of your closet and wear everyday. Lightweight, breathable and gifted with a true freedom of movement.Outlier’s 60/30 Cloth is a carefully considered blend of cotton (64%), micro-denier nylon (29%) and elastane (7%). It combines the comfort and good looks of a classic cotton khaki twill, but with the four way stretch freedom of a cycling short and the durability of a hiking parka.
The wait is over, we finally put the Drop Bars Not Bombs tees back into production. It has been a year since they were last printed and they are sure to go fast. Stop by the Zlog Boutique and get a tee shirt or a tank top before they are all gone.
Outlier is on the fast track to the future with these new Northeast Slim Edition pieces appropriately photographed in a train yard. Their forward thinking approach to classic designs, paired with high-tech materials make for exceptional garments, that are ready for abuse.
The Slim Dungarees are a lean version of our Keirin Cut Dungarees. Don’t call them jeans. There’s no denim in here. No cotton to suck up sweat and rain and clam up your life for hours as it sort of dries. If Levi Strauss set out today to sell pants to gold miners, do you think he’d pick a fabric centuries old or would he do what he did 160 years ago and find the toughest, most durable and most comfortable cloth around? Made out of our Workcloth Doubleweave Canvas, the Slim Dungarees boast a rugged canvas exterior and soft brushed interior, making them as comfortable as they are durable. They shrug off light rain, coffee and beer yet breathe with ease. They look great covered in grime and paint yet clean up like nobody’s business. The tough, the comfortable and the good looking rolled up into one pant.
Sometimes the simplest things in life are best, which is why we made the Northeast Pivot Sleeve Shirt. As much as we love testing performance fabrics all day, sometimes even we want to throw on a soft and comfortable button-down oxford and call it a day. With the Northeast Pivot, we took our patent pending pivot sleeve shirt construction and did it up with a beautiful oxford cloth we sourced from Spain. A killer button-down shirt with a great range of motion that you can wear every day.
Cut and sewn in NYC. Now available via the Outlier Webshop.
The Slim Dungarees are available in Black and Indigo Blue for $188.
The Northeast Pivot Sleeve Shirt is available in Blue, Gray and Lavender for $128.
I stopped by the launch party for Actual Pain’s new Spring line, Icons of a New Mythology. The collection continues to thrive and mature into a high-end brand with a strong taste for gothic imagery. To celebrate the launch, tattoo artists were cranking out free tattoos, based on flash designed by Actual Pain operator T.J. Cowgill. I snagged myself some gear and so did most of Seattle, considering the next day everyone was sporting new AP duds.
T.j. at Actual Pain just put up all of his new spring line ” Icons of a New Mythology” up on his shop. I always look forward to seeing what new stuff T.J. comes up with, and as always I love almost everything I see. It’s really cool to have brands like Actual Pain and Flying Coffin in Seattle, because you have a better connection to the people whose clothes you’re buying. I know I support the homies, so go out and support a real dude who is making some cool shit here in Seattle.
The Zlog Boutique needs to clear some space for new 2011 product so head over and take advantage of the deals. Sale starts February 21st (Presidents Day) and ends on the 28th.
This winter collection is amazing. I need some Nari Furi in my life!

Our fastest Zlog crew member, Daniel, also does a little modeling for Mike Martin, who is the mind behind the clothing line. If you didn’t know, he’s also the co-creator of Mash Sf, the movie that served as a catalyst for the fixed-gear movement. Now, Mike is focusing on his high-end label, while keeping the cyclist in mind. Season 4 has just dropped at Martin, so go check out all the goods.

I am in love with the things that are in the works over at D’emploi. You really can’t beat handmade stuff and I am happy to know that they source material from places various places around NYC. That being said, I need the backpack and bandanna! Although their web store isn’t live yet, you can check out his wares at the Handmade Show in Brooklyn on the 4th.
D’emploi also has a kickin’ blog that I’ve been following for years.
