Here at Main Source we are all generally pretty big film fans and in light of the recent Oscar nominations announcement and what looks like is going to be a great year for movies I thought i would do a little post about a couple of the things I and the team are looking forward to.
The latest Tarantino ‘Django Unchained’, I’m really looking forward to Dicaprio’s villain in this.
Probably the one we are all most excited about… New McClane
and finally a little further into the year
New Winding Refn & Gosling… Drive was probably my favourite film of 2011 so I am personally super excited about this one… I think its out in May? or some time in the summer, apologies for the low quality vid.
The Hundreds Winter Collection 2012 has a theme of apocalypse running throughtout the line, a testament to the end of days. Alot of work has gone into the consistency of the theme through the graphics work and the cut & sew range, for The Hundreds the colour palettes they have chose to work with are some what subdued (bar a few obvious pieces) which shows an ever growing maturity and willingness to try something new. We love The Hundreds here at Main Source and this is one of the strongest collections we have had from them so far.
Check out a couple of these awesome images from the Winter 2012 Lookbook
Heres a selection of the pieces we have in at Main Source from this collection

Icons since their introduction in the early 80’s, the Blue Star & Red Star raced through the decade with their cutting-edge, lightweight construction. Both featured clean suede uppers with distinct overlays on the toe, slim line tongues, and a gum cup sole for ultimate grip on indoor surfaces. They were dubbed due to their colour – a common trend at the time – but made their own name in the PUMA hall of fame.
The first ever reissue has seen the Shadow Society delve into the depths of their acute sneaker knowledge, meticulously refurbishing every iconic detail. From the clean suede uppers with their distinct overlays to the font, logo spacing and style of the branding the Shadow Society have set an authentic tone which is further reinforced by the use of PUMA’s vintage Dassler logo.

The Nike blazer started life in 1972, an instantly recognizable basketball shoe, featuring possibly the biggest swoosh ever to grace a pair of Nikes. George “The Iceman” Gervin was the NBA Pro who brought these to the forefront with his famous ice cold slam dunks..
he was most often seen in the Nike Blazer mostly being Leather make-ups back then. The reason the trademark swoosh was as big as it possibly could, was clever marketing from Nike at the time who were starting to realize the importance of brand awareness. The Blazer carried on being made right through to the eighties but came up against heavy hitters that appeared on the scene during that time like the Air Force 1, Dunk and most notably the Nike Air Jordan. Skateboarders instead flew the blazer flag for a time due to it’s flat and grippy sole. Skip to the present and the Blazer is now as popular as it was first time round with the best models being from Nikes VNTG range, standing for Vintage, they are made to look like the first ever issues and that they could have been sat in a box all that time, hence the yellowed looking sole. Not too everyone’s taste mind, we have had several phone calls to the shop from irate parents who have believed we have sent them some old second-hand shoes only to be told that’s what there supposed to look like..”£70 for shoes that look knackered before little billy has even worn them” yep..
This is a Blazer from our current Holiday 2012 Collection.
We’re going to try and keep our music posts a regular thing, Letting you guys know what we’re listening to, what we’re looking forward to and more than likely a pile of nostalgia drenched gems too.
Here at Main Source we are all generally big Hip-Hop fans as you might of guessed so i thought i would do a post about an artist I’m really feeling at the moment, that artist is Roc Marciano who has just released his second solo album ‘Reloaded’. Roc’s first album ‘Marcberg’ which is entirely produced by the man himself recieved a hefty ammount of praise from peers and critics alike. Its a stripped down yet complex, raw and gritty album which still maintains a high level of melodicism and soul. Tough to follow up for sure but with Reloaded i believe he has done so in great fashion, I’m really just stoked on this guy! Before this turns into some kind of break down of everything i like about him as a rapper im just going to give you my current favourite track from the album and hope you can get into dude as much as i have.
Here it is… a re-cap vid for our Ewing Launch Party that featured a rather special appearance by the one and only DJ Boogie Blind. The Brooklyn Lagers were brown paper bagged, the donuts were flowing and Ewings were getting copped left and right. The Vibe was right for the whole evening and we had a great time with everyone who came down. If that was you we love you. forever
