Hall Of Fame 2011

Saw these on Hypebeast earlier today and thought they deserved a re-up on here.. from the 2011 collection from the LA based retailer ‘Hall OF Fame’. Particularly liking the ‘touching spuds’ t-shirt.. It might only be the UK based kids that get that reference though, so apologies!.. but check out the pics and be sure to go check out the Hall of Fame website too. enjoy.


Dephect Clothing Autumn/Winter 2011


Fresh for autumn/Winter 2011 comes the latest range from independent heavyweights Dephect, and being the lovely people that we are, we thought we’d pick out a nice selection from the range for all you even lovelier people out there to check out.

Not only have Dephect dropped another nice crop of tees, sweats and caps etc, they’ve also got a shiny new website (, which reflects their status and continued growth within the clothing market in the UK, Europe and around the world.

Here at strictlykings we can’t speak highly enough of the Dephect boys. These guys do things the right way, no bullshit, no over the top hype, just straight up dope styles for like minded people who appreciate the lifestyle and culture that has influenced us all.. the culture that is Hip Hop! .. And they do it all very well


Check out the selection below, the Tentacle design is particularly dope, designed by Austrian writer Nychos. All you graff heads need to check out this guy, if you don’t know?.. now you know!

For more info and for a look at the full range head over to for all the Autumn/Winter goodness. Peace!


Stussy – Make Beats



The Stussy ‘Make Beats’ Contest is about the fun of modern music making. Whether you’re a beat-maker, rapper, DJ or listener, this contest combines the creative aspect of making music with the fan’s point of view all tied together with some fresh tees and hats. The contest will be judged by Stussy, Low End Theory and Swedish synthesizer company, Teenage Engineering, who produced a new drum machine/synthesizer called the OP-1. In the music world today, it’s rare for a company to develop a piece of hardware, because most people use their computer to make beats. The OP-1 brings it back to the days of drum machines like the 808, when making beats meant banging them out on a machine. The Make Beats contest starts today and invites the public to upload their own original tracks (made on any machine/computer) via the Stussy ‘Make Beats Drop Box’  on Soundcloud.


Think i might have to dig out a few older beats for the comp.. unless i can get the studio up and running in a fortnight (unlikely).. Peep the associated tees and caps below, a must for any emcee/DJ/Producer combo.


Especially liking the ‘play records’ tee.. unlike many, i still play records!

Ellesse Sorrento

Just a quick Monday morning post.. been a fan of these shoes for some time and thought it long overdue to feature them on the blog.. Have recently picked up a pair of these for the Strictlykings summer holiday.. in.. Sorrento!.. too much of a coincidence for me, this holiday is clearly destined to be the best ever.. and no doubt i should look the bee’s knees in these lovely shoes.


The ellesse brand is seriously slept on for my money, and its about time it started getting the love it deserves. Starting here, with the lovely Ellesse Sorrento’s. Word on the street is that these shoes will  shortly be getting some new colourways and a lovely gum sole (man, i love a gum sole!)


you may have to look pretty hard to find a pair though, so i recomend a hardcore google session. Don’t sleep yo! for more information


VANS Chukka x Harris Tweed

Now we are big lovers of Tweed here at Strictlykings.. already proud owners of Tweed Nike Terminators and traditional Tweed flat caps (peace out to Yorkshire!) so when we stumbled across these on the sneakerfreaker we knew we just had to share!.. Tweed sneakers are a must.

here’s the offiicial spiel courtesy of sneaker freaker:

These natty new Vans Chukkas feature uppers made from genuine handwoven Harris Tweed. Featuring the famous red Harris Tweed orb trademark on the tongue, this toasty trio is destined to be an Asian exclusive with an ABC-Mart drop slated for November.


Puma Suede

Morning people.. hope the start to your week is going well.. though id take the oppotunity at the dawn of a new week to drop these lovely pics of some always lovely PUMA Suedes.. due for release via uk sneaker retailer offspring.

Reasonably priced at £50 also.. a must for the summer months.



St. Alfred Spring/Summer 2011

Picked this up from Hypebeast.. i’m being Lazy i know.. but have just been mad busy of late.. so apologies for the lack of content, and for being a lazy dog!..

Some real nice things from St. alfred though, so definitely worth a blog post. peep the stolen spiel and pics..

New from Saint Alfred comes a line of Ts and fitted caps just in time for Summer to start heating up. Established in 2005 in Chicago, Saint Alfred has followed the typical path of successful streetwear retailers and gone on to launch their own brand of apparel and accessories to sell in their store in addition to other companies’ limited-edition goodies. Having worked with Reebok and Vans in the past, the Midwestern brand limits their new releases to clothes – doling out some versatile graphic T shirts and printed hats. Not the first brand to use inverted logos this season, it appears that the backwards-word trend that has popped up in streetwear as of late is here to stay. The Spring/Summer 2011 Saint Alfred releases are available now through Bricksworth

Check out the brand new website, with an online store and much, much more.
