Fashion Week: Presenting Our Latest Collection…

It’s been a slow day at the office, as our staff has slowly crawled to work after indulging in overwhelming amounts of free alcohol last night, so we apologize for the delay in posting our latest lookbook online. Big thanks to everyone who came out for our runway show at Lenox Ledges yesterday, it was a great success, and the kind words regarding our collection mean the world to all of us who worked so hard to bring it to you. So without further ado, here is the latest ready-to-wear fall collection from Quartersnacks, “Grown & Sexy.” Lookbook styled by Switch Mike. Available at Barney’s, Bergdorf Goodman, Transit Active Wearhouse, and Caldor.

Alex Olson x Dylan Rieder Charity T-Shirt Auction

Skateboarding’s two most handsome socialites have put their differences aside, and are collaborating on a one-of-a-kind “Nightlife Beef” t-shirt for an eBay charity auction, referencing a dark time when tensions still ran high. Proceeds go to purchasing plane tickets and accommodations for underprivileged socialite skateboarders otherwise unable to make it to this year’s Fall Fashion Week, so they could frolic with models, test their namedropping skills at doors, possibly pick up a cocaine habit, and sell their skateboard to pay for brunch. The description reads: “Alex Olson / Dylan Rieder ‘nightlife beef’ shirt. size large. unworn.” Also worth noting is that this charity auction is being conducted by former rabies victim / condom factory worker / Battery Park Russian hat salesman turned auctioneer, Bob Sacamano (now evidently based out of Rochester.)

Bid now, because many appraisals are already estimating that this item will exceed the $30,000 ending bid on Nike’s 1-of-1 eBay Dunks.

Diamond Plated Edition

Several months ago, the G Man spoke of an insane endeavor, in which he intended to film a video part exclusively on Crosby Street. Disregarding it as some sort of new age, alcohol-inspired pursuit at bringing notions of “abstract spots” to absurd new heights, I forgot about it. That is, until I actually noticed that an inordinate amount of footage from Crosby Street and it’s outlying areas of easy-to-skate-but-still-cool-looking spots had made its way to this website over the past year. The surge in skating this neighborhood probably correlates to this website’s roster becoming more fashionable in recent years, requiring a cobble-stoned proving ground best-suited for landing yourself in a Sartorialist post (or on Quartersnacks, its distant skateboard-related relative), and perhaps even meet an ambush of eggs, water, Heineken bottles, or paintballs (yes, rich people shoot paintballs apparently) from silk robe wearing residents disgruntled at their massive rent seeming less worthwhile when they hear your wheels raging across their diamond plated front steps.

This has been sitting around on a boredom-fueled Final Cut timeline for a couple weeks, so I figured it would make sense to throw it up on the site, even though it is practically all recycled footage. February isn’t exactly a month known for acquiring a ton of skate footage in New York, so recycled stuff that is thematically re-edited is the best we can do for now. After all, it is fashion week, and what’s more fashionable than an all SoHo skate clip?

As a bonus, the geographic restrictions on this clip are so intense, that the classic Quartersnacks spot-that-isn’t-a-spot, the Crosby Garage, was left out because it is north of Houston Street. Dedicated to the G Man and his endless dedication in skating ridiculous spots amidst the most fashionable area in Manhattan.
