As we bid adieu to March, emotionally eat your way through this month's Greatest Hits, baked fresh by our editorial elves across the nation, in trees subleased from Ernie Keebler. Emailed to SF: Acronym Designed in Munich with the regimented attention to detail only zee Germans can deliver, Acronym's a tricked-out outerwear/accessory line that's received the German Special Forces' stamp of approval for their in-house-engineered functional elements and materials. When you think of Germany, think of bags!
Emailed to Nation: Understand Rap A testament to the collective power of square-ass white folk, UR's an earnestly conceived repository of user-submitted explanations for confusing rap lyrics, helping to "bridge cultural and generational gaps that are preventing people from appreciating rap music". Honestly, you should really read this hilarity
Emailed to Philly: UNDRCRWN Mos Def Collection UNDRCRWN fan Mos Def has collabed with the Philly streetwear outfit on a t-shirt line, including "RBG" (African color-schemed, bandana-style paisley patterns inspired by Dead Prez's "Revolutionary But Gangsta" cover), the bubble-typed black "Boogie Man", the olive "Brooknam" (the Brooklyn Bridge outlined by the borough's pet name), and "Mos Caricature", depicting Mos with an unusually large head -- you'd have one too, if you starred in 16 Blocks and Be Kind Rewind. He's like the new Johnny Cupcakes!
Emailed to MIA: Christy's Crown Hats A branch of the Christy's hat company (est. 1773, London), Christy's Crown taps a Miami-based designer to cool-up the line, fusing their centuries-old expertise with tweaked silhouettes, non-traditional deets, materials, and colorways. While you're visiting your g-parents, you might as well get a cool hat
Emailed to LA: Killspencer Just launched and crafting manbags made at least partially from military-issued material, Killspencer's named after Art Center-hallway graffiti targeting its founder with that same message, which he decided was cool after getting over the initial shock, and not getting killed. A decidedly cooler name than LiveSpencer
