SSUR Spring/Summer 2010 T-Shirts

Caliroots take stock in the latest from streetwear OG Russ Karablin and his brand SSUR. “Russ started SSUR (Russ backwards) in New York, early 90s, when he also did most graphics for legendary new york brand Supreme. Now over 15 years later he is still going strong and this delivery is no different.” We’re partial to the ones they’d make you turn inside out at school.

The Carhartt Heritage Line Spring/Summer 2010

The Carhartt Heritage line is dedicated to Carhartt’s long history as a reputable workwear brand. The line is made of classic materials and colours to create that authentic vintage look and feel. This effect is made possible by special vintage washings and dyes only available in the Heritage line. All prints are reproductions of original graphics that honor the legacy of Carhartt Inc. workwear.
Retro-style details accompanied by a special Heritage hangtag highlight the exceptional character of this line. A replica of the brand’s first logo, a train car superim- posed on a heart – Carhartt, forms the Heritage label and helps to distinguish the Heritage line from the rest of the Carhartt collection. Pants are made from original fabrics and though they are based on Carhartt’s historic work pants, the cut has been reworked to suit the contemporary consumer. Sweaters are made from classic materials and printed with traditional ink for authentic character. Vintage-style yarn sweaters and t-shirts are made from slub yarn; a special yarn produced using traditional methods. The soft, thick nubs of the yarn appear as irregularities in the woven fabric, giving it a distinctive knitted surface and retro impression. A new printing process combined with traditional textile ink re-creates the appearance of vintage prints. This way, prints are fused into the fabric and don’t have the rubbery shine of modern designs. Hems and seams are stitched in time-honored fashion, employing the same patterns and methods used fifty years ago. Additionally, some items are washed for a faded effect.

The Roots feat. John Legend - Doin It Again

Samples John Legend’s “Again” (when you’d think they could have simply gotten him to re-recorded his vocals - although I know that defeats the purpose.) This means fans will have to wait for “The Fire”on the new Roots album to really hear what they’ve been working on together recently.
