A Gentleman’s Cut At Pappy’s Barber Shop

By on Feb 20, 2013 in SOCIAL | 0 comments

Designers + Barbers are more similar than you think. Pappy’s Barber started its roots 13 years ago as a body-piercing parlor based in San Diego. Marc is the owner of Pappy’s Barber/Propaganda Tattoo, but what drives him? What inspires him? Marc “Pappy” Bennett is one of the few if not the only traditional barber who embraces the feel and experience of how True Gentleman’s Haircut should be. A key part of Marc’s success is living a drug and alcohol free lifestyle. With a clear mind his goals were set and paved for him with full motivation and self-inspiration by keeping his mind right. “Extraordinary lives come from extraordinary mindsets.” Marc says. If your mind is clouded with substances how can you strive on your business yet alone progress to get where you really want to be. A Positive mindset and drug-alcohol free life is what drives Marc’s lifestyle to push forward his...

SOULECTION 100TH AFTER SHOW X New Wave Soul In SoCal

By on Oct 24, 2012 in MUSIC, SOCIAL | 0 comments

2012 has got to be one of the best years for Fitted Life and I. I’m truly grateful to have been a huge part of the ride to Fitted Life’s current success – on top of the connections and networks we’ve made this past year. One event which I’m particularly grateful for is getting acquainted and befriending Joe Kay & Andre Power of SOULECTION. I’ve partnered up with these guys in a past photo coverage of San Diego’s very own Freddie Joachim & AbJo’s live performance at Kava Lounge. Since then, I’ve remained in close contact with the two and documenting live art shows and music events in the Southern California area. I love attending these events to show some love with high appreciation for local artist. Their degree of passion to the arts brings back so much energy towards the community. I’ve been photographing these events since April and it has been a great experience. For...

5 & A Dime’s 3RD Annual Motor Union Meet Showcases At San Diego

By on Aug 17, 2012 in MOTOR WORK | 0 comments

Today marked 5 & A Dime’s 3rd Annual Motor Union meet at San Diego’s very own Green Flash Brewing Company. I must say despite this heat wave SoCal San Diego has been having this past week it didn’t stop attendees from enjoying the clear blue skies, gorgeous cars, and an ice cold brew. To hit off the event I went straight to the bar and had to get an ice cold goodness that is beer (of course!). It was a great venue, 5&D really stepped it up this year and really knew how to shake up the place to keep things interesting. HRE Wheels held raffles to the grand prize winner of a set of genuine HRE forged wheels which was pretty awesome. Another thing going around was the booth over at 9FIVE Sunglasses; “Smash your sunglasses and get a free pair of 9FIVE Sunglasses.” Unfortunate for me I didn’t have any sunglasses and didn’t want to smash a pair of prescription eyeglasses. Good...

By on May 7, 2012 in MOTOR WORK | 0 comments

Every year I look forward to picking up Mike from LAX to cover Formula D, but all good things don’t necessarily come to an end. Mike and I decided that it was best to push our brand towards the direction we saw fit. So this time marked our final coverage of Formula D from us two. As much as we loved covering the intensity of drifting that is FD, we are not only a car culture blog, but a lifestyle blog covering interest that best reflect what Fitted Life is all about. We have our roots in motoring and we will continue to pursue content for all you petrol heads out there. We are a lifestyle clothing brand that moves forward the mindset and ideals of like minded people such as yourself through music, style, and art. We thank you all for supporting us. Cheers.

ART & DESIGN // Art In The Park At Bluefoot Bar & Lounge

By on Mar 8, 2012 in ART & DESIGN | 0 comments

Passion. Last weekend I spontaneously made it to an art event my friends at Soulection hosted. This time around they hosted Art in the Park at Bluefoot Bar & Lounge which brought out a nice concoction of music and art. Live art performances were in full swing with Delr One, Konstant Be, Lyle Abrahams, Showlove, Andre Lupian, Roger, Jawny, Duckman, and Jackie Marlin. Likewise, spinning on the 1′s and 2′s were Yoshi & Abjo. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to stay long enough to see these two perform, but I know you guys did great. A big shout out to you both. The event reminded me that music and art are only a few expressions of individuality. It reminded me of how much I love art and all aspects of design. Not only is it tranquil to my state of mind, but it momentarily provides me an escape from reality. I’ve worked on a few hand rendered things, but the artists at...
