    Grey Floral Shirt

    Not only do the monotone florals of this shirt supply the appropriate amount of the macabre to the outfit, but by perfect coincidence it looks kind of similar to the dope Jose Guadalupe Posada illustration we used as the featured image.

  • Black Scale x Golden Bear

    Varsity Jacket

    When Black Scale teamed up with the Varsity dons Black Scale, the result was unsurprisingly something special. The leather chest panel gives it that premium edge, whilst the black and white ribbed cuffs keep things collegiate.

  • Undercover

    Ribcage Rucksack

    Nothing more reminiscent of the dead than the bones themselves, and this rucksack puts a ribcage right on your back. Japanese-label Undercover bring the goods, providing a main compartment and two side pockets to store all your daily necessities, be they for the dead or otherwise.

  • En Noir

    Quilted Sweatpants

    The rule of thumb for wearing black on black, is keep mixing up those textures. If sweatpants wasn't enough of a curveball, En Noir went and made a quilted pair. Perfect for that luxury-loungewear balance we all crave so hard.

  • Converse

    First String x Chaz B Chuck Taylor Hi

    Converse hooked up with renowned LA-graffiti artist Chaz Bojorquez on these high-top Chuck Taylors. The classic 1970s silhouette has been updated with a black heavyweight canvas upper and suede trim, and unique accents including hexagonal eyelets and a Bojorquez's signature 'Senor Suerte" skull on the tongue.

  • BBC Black

    Bucket Hat

    I insisted on including a bucket hat so I could make some joke about "kicking the bucket," but now the occasion has come around I can't even think of one. Nevermind. Crafted in the USA from ripstop cotton with ventilation on each side, it's a dope hat either way.

The Weekly Outfit: Dia de Los Muertos

Dia de Los Muertos, aka Day of the Dead for those of you who don’t have a basic grasp of Spanish, is the Mexican holiday in which friends and family gather together to honor and remember lost loved ones. The occasion has gradually acquired a distinctive, bold and colorful aesthetic, which could be partially due to its Aztec origins. But bright colors these days are just an absolute nightmare to pull off. Making sure the shades complement your skin tone, avoiding the textbook error of being mistaken for a clown – nothing cool about any of that. Keep well away from the dangers and instead get yourself a crisp black and white outfit that still embodies the spirit(s) of Dia de Los Muertos.
