I just placed a Rush Order for the CHEAT Shirts Today! (…just a few a hours ago; it looks like Rent might be a couple more weeks late :/) I’ll have the Shirts by Thursday and they’ll be Available for Sale this Friday, December 17th. I’ll be lurking around the outside of Madison Square Garden with some friends selling them. Here’s the Mock-up pic from the previous post from a week and a half ago. The actual shirts will be slightly different: No Orangey-Red Gradient in the front, the Text and Numbers will be straight Red and Black.

“CHEAT” – A Lesser Evil (Mock-up)

So, I didn’t get a chance to watch last night’s Heat-Cavs game, but I couldn’t help but hear (or read rather) about it All over the Internet. Anyhow, I thought what the heck, seems like an appropiate time to post this silly spoof idea of mine. A couple months back while I walking back to Frank’s Chop Shop from my lunch break, this idea just came to mind. It was a No Brainer, and I drew it up in Illustrator that same night. Money has been tight, but I’m working an order and hopefully, it’ll be ready for December 17th when the CHEAT make their first appearance this season at Madison Square Garden. ;)

Calabrese x Garbstore Bag / Calabrese’s Barber Shop

I’ve heard of Garbstore a while ago, but I must admit that I’m not too familiar with the brand Calabrese. But it did remind me of a good friend, fellow batber and old coworker, Chris Calabrese.

I used to work side by side with Calabrese at Frank’s Chop Shop but now he’s on to bigger and better things. He now has his own shop, Calabrese’s Barber Shop, in his hometown Keyport, NJ. The homeys from BarberStyle featured Calabrese’s Barber Shop a few months back. Check out the post here. they also had a brief interview with Chris for their Heads Up column, here. Unfortunately, I still haven’t gotten a chance to make the troop out to Keyport to check out Chris’s Shop. :( I plan on doing a more detailed post on Calabrese’s Barber Shop in the near future but seeing this bag made me think of him (pause) and I had to Shout the Big Homey out. Good work Chris! Keep bringing fame to that Calabrese name! Oh, and the other Calabrese, you guys are alright with me, too. ;) via Selectism via BarberStyle
