The Know: uniform experiment

what is...

uniform experiment?

Their first line was launched in 2008 with a concept based on mutual respect and appreciation of well designed, quality in art and culture.  

uniform experiment is created by Hiroshi Fujiwara (fragment design) and Hirofumi Kiyonaga (SOPHNET) who both believed that everyday men's suiting doesn't always have to be so structural, uniformed.  So they reconstructed the typical business uniform and made them into something, well, better.  The experiment turned their idea into a unique and fun streetwear for mean, of all ages.  

This is from their SS/2011 line... do you know notice anything? Mixing up the traditional blazer with a more relaxed cut and fit, adding street inspired patterns and pairing it with jeans and Doc Martens.  Genius.

Above we have a modern school boy... perhaps a rebellious one?

Loving the bow tie! Who said the bow tie is old? This is one way you should be wearing it.  Have you read the post about ways to wear the bow tie? If not, perhaps you can check it out like... NOW!

This is hilarious.. can't wait to take a peek of this and read it.  Parents alike agree that their kids just doesn't like to go to bed!  They don't need to pee.  They don't need to drink water.  They just don't want to go to bed. 

This is sure hit for this year's top seller.  Just don't leave it around for your kids to read it.

The Know: The Tuk Tuk is Coming to the U.S.A.

 TuK TuK... TuK TuK... Tuk Tuk....!!!

I love tuk tuk's... in Thailand we use them to get to all kinds of places.  Its cheaper than a taxi cab and a quick ride in short distances when heavy traffic prevents you from moving in your large and stationary car.

These economical mini-transportation is coming to the U.S.A. and is street legal in all 50 states!

So what is a Tuk Tuk?

Motorized, three-wheels motor-tricycle.  Originally, these motor-trikes had a noisy motor scooter engine which were loud when idling.  Hence, how it got its name of "tuk tuk". 


But now.... these have been modified to take you around the city or at short distances.  They are also great for resorts and college students too!  I can dig this little ride, driving all over downtown.  How nice would this be!  Check out Tango Trikes and see more.

The Rolls Royse of Tuk Tuk's...
