Katie Eary Digital Print Tees

I've gained an appreciation for Katie Eary since finding out she collaborated with Topman and helped  reinvigorate the denim jacket along with a selection of other designers including one of my favourites, Mark McNairy. Recently I came across her website and subsequently her webshop or the Digital Pop-Up Shop. Wasn't ready for what was there. Eary has taken the recent trend of animal print and gone to a whole other level. She has printed four t-shirts featuring cheetahs and hawks, not only that she's become a scientist and bred the chawk - half cheetah, half hawk - and done that too.

The t-shirts and vibrant and artistic and would go great with block coloured pants, basically go simple everywhere else if you're gonna wear these. Or if you extra adventurous go with print elsewhere. Each t-shirt retails for £125 each.

Adidas Originals x Opening Ceremony preview

End Clothing's words:
Ingeniously combining elements of 90′s street culture with swimming and cycling apparel, Adidas Originals and Manhattan-based fashion house Opening Ceremony have joined forces to release a highly limited capsule collection for Autumn/Winter 2012. Commemorating and influenced directly by the London 2012 Olympic Games, the mainly unisex collection infuses layers of bold colour and patterned prints with functional performance fabrics such as neoprene and dry-swim spandex to create a contemporary sportswear collection. 
The first drop from the collaboration showcases Opening Ceremony’s iconic ‘Bandana’ print in all its glory, with the strong paisley-like pattern featuring on tees, jackets and footwear. This is used to most striking effect in their selection of crew neck tees which utilise a patch panel construction to create a typically bold and individual look and feel. A number of tees also add a touch of functionality with the addition of a zip closure chest pocket. The range of apparel is completed by the innovative Reversible Anorak, which is available in Navy and Off-White colourways. The jacket features the strong OC Print on one side, whilst the other is a simple block colour; both of which feature simple front pockets and half-zip fastening. 
The capsule collection is rounded off with a range of striking footwear which follows on neatly from the apparel. One of the most notable styles is Opening Ceremony’s unique take on the classic Saddle Derby Shoe. Constructed from opaque rubber, the OC Dress Rubber evokes childhood memories of jelly shoes, with the see-through uppers showing the internal bandana print on the insole. For those, who want to keep you feet under wraps, the Swim Boat shoe features mesh underlays with OC Print overlays and a spring-loaded fastening system to enhance technical performance.

Grab Your Cards - Mr Porter Sale Round II

A number of you guys really took to the last Grab Your Cards installment where I picked my top sales picks from premier menswear e-retailer, Mr Porter. I've just had a tip that they've gone sale mad and I'm here, once again, to deliver to you my top picks. As with before I'll categorise them so you can easily find exactly what you're looking for, but make sure you're quick because at these prices a lot of the stuff might be gone or going really quickly. Once again I've categorised my picks into outerwearshirtingtrousersaccessories and footwear

*Side note: I would love to make it all fancy but my computer screen has packed in (almost) and I can't use Photoshop. Maybe when I get it working I'll spruce this post up.

Peep my picks after the jump

Albam Club Collar Shirt

I want to live a florallife for as long as I can and this seems like the perfect way to do that. Albam present a range of club collar shirts in a pair of striking prints. Constructed in Portugal using 100% cotton and prints done by Liberty of London and a rounded, button-down collar, white cotton stitched interior elbow patch and side-vent details these shirts are ideal for summer months. My favourite of the two is the one below, I really love the contrast between the bright colours of the print against the dark oxford cotton base. I'll see what the budget is saying and you might see a selfie of me wearing this fantastic garment.

Bear with me

I sincerely apologise to you guys for the sparse posting but in all honesty there hasn't been anything that really inspires me to write about at length but I am doing something exciting so I hope to share that with you guys soon, kind of a commemoration of the blog's first birthday.

Again, I thank y'all for your support and continued readership and hope you'll stick with OMAS as I take steps to further facilitate its growth.

Albam - Beach Bound and Down

I've written about Albam before so you guys should know by now that I'm fully behind the brand and am always impressed by their offerings. If you ever need good quality, durable staples that eschew trends Albam should be your destination.

It's always nice to get stuff in your inbox and I recieved this little set of imagery from good friend, Stephen, who had a hand in styling this set. It goes by Beach Bound and Down and demonstrates ways to layer without being over-complicated. I really like the red-striped hoody and shorts combo as well as the third look. Layering has always been something I've tried to improve upon because honestly I'm not that good at it and the fact I get super hot even wearing one layer but this definitely inspires me to give it a better go.
