Fashion Fridays: Official Lee “Scratch” Perry Tees + Buttons


Lee “Scratch” Perry would be a hell of a Halloween costume. Perry’s personal uniform is a compilation of personal artifacts so distinctive that it would be impossible to replicate. So while we’re sure someone’s tried, we doubt anyone else out there could do Scratch justice. Better to spend your Oct. 31st enjoying the many “haunted” and “spooky” tunes the reggae/dub pioneer has had his hand in over the years. From Bob Marley’s original “Duppy Conqueror” (produced by Perry on the Upsetter label in 1970) to his latest release, “Black Ark Vampires,” (premiered right here yesterday) Perry’s catalog is ripe for Halloween listening. If you really must express your love for LSP through your attire, head over to his website, where a pair of smartly designed new tees and some slick new pins are now for sale.

The tees, designed by New Analog and hand printed by One69A, are the first official shirts ever commissioned for The Upsetter, while the pins are currently available for pre-order at £3 a pop. Pree di business below.

Every other Friday, we’ll be talking sartorial shop with the most impeccably dressed men and women of the Caribbean and the diaspora, from familiar faces to everyday people pon di corner. Along the way we intend to show the world what we’ve long held true—no one’s got style and swagger quite like the islands.

Fashion Fridays: Clarks x Staple

Words by Jah Banks


There aren’t many footwear labels out there as timeless as Clarks. Founded in Britain during the 19th century, the company has weathered through generations of change and trends, while still maintaining a devotion to their iconic boot styles and silhouettes. One style in particular that transcended into the fashion and pop culture world a long time ago is the Wallabee. The list of musicians who have penned a tune referencing the popular “cheesebottoms” is countless: Slick Rick, SuperCat, Rick Ross, WuTang, Vybz Kartel and Popcaan just to name a few. This fall, Clarks is giving us something new to talk about as they introduce their latest collaboration, with NYC-based streetwear brand, Staple.

Pop Style Pon The Parkway: Kalique and Jaden


Every Labor Day Monday, Caribbean swagger and New York style come together at the West Indian American Day Carnival (aka the “West Indian Day Parade” or “Brooklyn Carnival”) on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. We decided to bring our street style feature Pop Style out onto the Parkway this year, and the cast assembled did not disappoint, reflecting the mixture of national pride and personal style we’ve come to expect from this most visually stimulating of days. We’ll be sharing shots and stories from some of our favorite people we met popping style pon di parkway all day here.
