The Results Aren’t Out Yet but This Squad Has Already Made Election History

Despite the President’s grandiose claim that he won “BIG” in yesterday’s election, millions of votes are yet to be counted and the outcome cannot be predicted. And while we anxiously await the results, it’s worth acknowledging that, in many ways, we’ve already made huge wins. Your votes have begun ushering in a diverse new set of politicians. Across the country, history is being made with newly-elected progressive legislators shaking up the political landscape. This historic “squad” of state senators, members of Congress, and state representatives signal a positive direction in law-making in the coming term, regardless of who sits in the Oval Office. Notably, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had been re-elected to stand for New York’s 14th District in the House of Representatives. “Serving NY-14 and fighting for working-class families in Congress has been the greatest honor, privilege, & responsibility of my life,” AOC wrote on Twitter. “Thank you to the Bronx & Queens for re-..

BAPE Dresses Banksy’s Iconic ‘Flower Bomber’ in Camo

Visit the original post to see all 4 images from this gallery. BAPE is declaring its love for Banksy. The streetwear giant has teamed up with Brandalism to release an ABC CAMO figurine of the artist’s famed Flower Bomber artwork. This isn’t the first time Banksy – and Flower Bomber specifically – has gotten the toy treatment. Brandalism and MEDICOM TOY previously released versions of the sculpture. However, BAPE’s refreshing take is all thanks to its signature camo print. BAPE’s iteration dresses the British graffiti artist’s Flower Bomber artwork in the brand’s famous green ABC CAMO. The print almost entirely covers the figurine, leaving only the flowers in their original coloring. The figure stands at about 14 inches tall (360mm) and is priced at ¥75,000 (about $715 USD). Flower Bomber is one of Banksy’s most iconic stencils. The drawing famously appeared on the wall that separates Israel from Palestine and shows a masked Palestinian throwing a bouquet of flowers. The man and the..

The Bomber Jacket Will Always Be an Icon & These New Ones Say So

You can trace a large portion of outerwear back to military roots, but of all the standard-issue heirs, the bomber jacket is a resounding favorite.

Since its repurposed popularity in the ’50s, the bomber has been adopted by countless subcultures, from punk to hip hop, and yet still holds strong as one of the most popular casual items available. Almost every label has tried its hand at the bomber jacket and that’s another reason why it remains an essentials wardrobe addition.

How James Bond Made the Submariner Rolex’s Most Iconic Watch

The mythology of James Bond is a pop culture phenomenon in that even if you haven’t seen the movies, you’ll no doubt be familiar with the titular character. For a lot of people that means debonair style and sometimes ridiculous accents, but for watch fans, it’s all about the Rolex Submariner. When Sean Connery debuted as the first-ever Bond in 1962’s Dr. No., he etched himself into Rolex history with his choice of timepiece: the Submariner reference 6538. As the world’s first dive watch, it was a sensible choice for a 007 who was never afraid of getting wet during his pursuit of saving the world. “[Bond] could not just wear a watch,” wrote James Bond creator Ian Fleming in his book Casino Royale. “It had to be a Rolex”. Sometimes referred to as “The Big Crown” thanks to the oversized winding crown and no crown guards, the model packed a distinct vintage look and played off nicely against Bond’s off-duty style of summer polos and camp shirts. Without his wearing it — as he also did in..

What Is Redlining & Why Does It Matter?

The prevailing convservative logic that minority communities remain impoverished due to their own lack of initiative would be laughably untrue were it not so horrifying. To the contrary — minority communities are systematically under-developed and leeched for profit, all but ensuring they remain impoverished. This is a process known as redlining, and it has segregated minorities into neighborhoods of financial stagnation and despair across the country. Although the practice has been around since the 1930s, the term was first coined in the 1960s by sociologist John McKnight to describe the literal “red line” drawn around city maps by the federal government. Traditionally defined by excluding or denying loans and financial services, redlining also includes limiting healthcare (hospitals/urgent care clinics), as well as grocery stores (creating food deserts). The scale of redlining could be argued to include education as well, including recent reports that banks like Wells Fargo and Upst..
