Bittersweets NY’s gold “Beyond & Back” necklace is at once sweet and morbid: two skulls representing commitment now and well into the afterlife. The 14k gold skulls hang from an 18-inch petite cable chain and can be engraved with two letters in the brand’s custom Storybook font.
Available in four colors—white, sky blue, coral, and our pick taro—Mister Green’s new LA Weed Tours Tee features a decidedly retro-looking design, on top of their West Hollywood address. The discharge screen printing technique used means that the shirt’s color is removed and replaced, rather than just coated in color, and the ring-spun cotton is enzyme-washed in order to feel soft and worn from the start.
Shepherd Tartan uppers—crafted from premium Scottish wool—pair with a classic waffle sole in the second collaboration between NYC’s Noah and SoCal’s Vans.

Crafted by mysterious independent Italian brand GR10K, this fleece jacket, in “Dolphin Grey,” references military styles—a point emphasized by the fact that they source recycled Polartec from that sector. With streetwear nods and an eco-friendly conscience, it distances itself from the style popularized by outdoor industry veterans like The North Face.
Cannabis brand Old Pal’s “Legalize Humanity” T-shirt represents far more than a stoner mantra.

Each time you’re due, you’re able to pick any of the Nike or Converse silhouettes they have on offer; you send the old ones back and new ones arrive in a customized box.
Released as part of Only NY and the MTA’s collaborative collection, the beach T-shirt promotes one of the city’s most underrated treats: accessibility to dozens of delightful beaches by subway or bus.

Designed by HOUNDS, this flower-adorned T-shirt pushes two positive messages: “It’s OK” and “Be Better Tomorrow.” The release comes from Pittsburgh-based artist Mars Jackson, and the slogan doubles as the title for his forthcoming project. Each shirt (available in medium to XL) comes with a pressed “Flower Tag,” which, if left unopened, can be preserved for a lifetime.
