This holiday season Mishka NYC has three incredible jackets on the racks to get you thru the harsh winter months, the Malamute Snorkel Jacket, the Paddington Cloaked Duffle Coat, and the Leather Keep Watch Coach Jacket.
Of the three I have to say that I'm instantly OBSESSED with the Malamute Snorkel. It's lightly padded with a wool blend shell, a removable hood, and many other signature Mishka details yet to be seen. Such a clean cut, taking the best elements from a parka and a pea coat, then giving it a slight military feel, this beast is gonna feel warm and look straight heat. WANT.

Presented by NYC-based sports-centric brand No Mas (Spanish for “no more”), artist James Blagden created an incredible animated film telling the story of how Pittsburgh Pirate Dock Ellis pitched a no-hitter against the Padres under the influence of LSD.
More info from No Mas:
In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas and artist James Blagden proudly present the animated tale of Dock Ellis' legendary LSD no-hitter. In the past few years weve heard all too much about performance enhancing drugs from greenies to tetrahydrogestrinone, and not enough about performance inhibiting drugs. If our evaluation of the records of athletes like Mark McGwire, Roger Clemens, Marion Jones, and Barry Bonds needs to be revised downwards with an asterisk, we submit that that Dock Ellis record deserves a giant exclamation point. Of the 263 no-hitters ever thrown in the Big Leagues, we can only guess how many were aided by steroids, but we can say without question that only one was ever thrown on acid.
Sadly, the great Dock Ellis died last December at 63. A year before, radio producers Donnell Alexander and Neille Ilel, had recorded an interview with Ellis in which the former Pirate right hander gave a moment by moment account of June 12, 1970, the day he no-hit the San Diego Padres. Alexander and Ilels original four minute piece appeared March 29, 2008 on NPRs Weekend America. When we stumbled across that piece this past June, Blagden and Isenberg were inspired to create a short animated film around the original audio.
The Prohab Helmet Society is a non-profit in Vancouver dedicated to providing helmets by donation to active individuals who wouldn't normally use them. To help fund their effort, Prohab put together a 2010 Ladies bike calender, a collaboration of artists, photographers, models, and friends. Featuring helmeted women in and around Vancouver having fun with their bikes, the 2010 Ladies Bike Calendar proves/aims to show that you can have fun–and be sexy–while being safe.
If you're into seeing gals and their bikes, then you can pick up a calender for about $23 USD shipped. Printed copies are being sent out early November, with an official release party on November 13th.
