This is totally shameless, but Jack Threads, an invite-only discount streetwear shop, is giving away an iPad and to enter you just have to get your cronies to sign up for their worthwhile, I-honestly-go-there-every-day site, no big. You sign up, get discounted deals on rad stuff every day (similar to Woot and the like) and get credits for their store when your own friends sign up and buy stuff.

So, if you want to get some deals on shoes like Clae, Vans, Supra, etc and clothing from the likes of Mishka, Hundreds, Stampede and so forth, and enter CrownDozen into a drawing for an iPad then, um - clicky-clicky right here.

{     Selector!     }

Selector! is a reggae-inspired, design-oriented t-shirt brand made by reggae fans for reggae fans, owned and operated out of Venice, California by longtime clothing and magazine industry player John Hall. Having worked for several years in the biz with the likes of Mass Appeal, Vapors, Missbehave, Staple, Digital Gravel, Ludwig, The Hundreds and more, in 2006 John decided his obvious next move was to create a label of his own. Focusing on his love of reggae and it's poor representation in the market, Selector! was born.

Looking at the available tees for the serious reggae fan all John saw were weak, nearly insulting efforts consisting of tired designers throwing pictures of drums under palm trees and slapping bad cliche phrases underneath. And Bob Marley - so much Bob Markey. Where were those that came before Nesta? Beginning with simple, creative pieces, John payed tribute to classic reggae artists like 60's ska groundbreaker Prince Buster and the "Godfather of Rocksteady", innovator Alton Ellis. The graphics were strong, the icons classic, and Selector! was off.

With Selector! John wavered into darker, "street" territory only on a few occasions, focusing more-so on the positive "one love, one heart" message which has carried reggae around the world over these past decades, even unifying island music's many "one" concepts (one blood, one God, one people, one world, one love, one peace) into the label's hand-drawn, most signature design titled 'Universal'.

Moving forward with the brand, John has recently pushed to widen his label's appeal by interlacing Selector!'s Jamaican-roots with reggae's international influence, resulting in designs like the 'Jamaican in NY' tee and it's spirited overlaying of the NY logo with the colors of the Jamaican flag.

These backward-recognizing tributes compounded with Selector!'s forward-facing ideas, as well as John's creativity and continuing close involvement with the clothing and magazine industry, solidify the label's upward rise and ensure us that there is much more greatness yet to come.
