UNVEILED!! AnyForty x J3Concepts leather embossed wallets!

March 25, 2011

Right, do us a favour, you get paid the next few days yeah, well take £25 out of your pay slip, hide it under a book, inside your sisters stuffed toy or cellotape it to your face because in about 3 weeks we’ll hopefully have a limited run of sick in the mouth leather wallets on our store designed by the brilliant Jared Nickerson aka J3Concepts and you’re gonna want one. SO SAVE SOME CASH MONEY, DOLLAR DOLLAR BILL Y’ALL!

Anyway, must calm down, these wallets will feature this artwork…

Fully embossed front and back on 100 black leather wallets and 100 brown leather wallets. We’re using the finest leather that has probably not come from one of the cows in Kanye West’s recent G.O.O.D Farm project. Where all the cows wear Air Yeezy’s and are fed a diet of courvoisier and fields of grass that are grown on the moon.

This leather is smoother than a new born baby’s arse and better quality than a David Beckham free kick.

Got some nice touches planned for packaging too.

These are limited to 200 pieces in total and will fly out the door. We’ll be getting the first Pre Production sample back from Hong Kong in the next week or so, so we’ll post some update pics.

Ohh did we mention we’re also celebrating the launch of our first accessory item with a matching tee? No well take a look at this fucking beauty below…

Spread the word our pretties!

The Publishers Club. Manchestaaaaaaaaa

March 13, 2011

So, we’ve been in Manchester for 2 months now and been to a few cool things, but this was the first event when we’ve actually seen pictures to report from.

Yesterday we hit up Cord bar in Manchester’s Northern Quarter for The Publishers club x Inkygoodness Totem event with our Manchester based Artist Purdi Petunia.

Was a pretty fun afternoon out, drank some Estrada, watched people draw and stick shit on 6foot tall wooden totems, drank some more Estrada, checked out Darren Newman’s jaw dropping exhibition in there and met some new cool people., then bounced!

Hit up our mates at from Ammo Magazine’s Flickr to see his pictures from the afternoon. Much love to Purdi, Jake, Fran, Bec and Dave, was nice to see new and old friends a like.

Watch this space for a AnyForty Manchester event coming soooooooooooooooon yo!!!!

 

New product WIP. AnyForty Classic Collection.

March 12, 2011

Quick one peoples, playing around with a forthcoming range called AnyForty Classic Collection

Basically going to be a range of simple bold one or two colour typographical designs for the family who want to rep AnyForty all day but sometimes don’t want the big lairy illustrated prints. That range is going to consist of two new colourways of the Hydro Script tee and one typographical “Killer A” design by our man Craig Ward aka Words Are Pictures which is also going to be the branding rolled out on the Quintin Co Snap Backs if we ever get round to getting samples made!

Here’s a quick look at the Killer A crew neck. Will be a two colour white and grey print with fabric tag detailing on the right sleeve.

What you saying?!

.

As part of the classics range we’ve also been sampling up some script tees, feeling this one a lot at the moment.
