Homegrown street brand Butan Wear launched their summer collection back in October – as you can tell i’m slowly catching up. Their collection of graphic tees, hoodies and accessories will  appeal to the Hip Hop kids (young and old). Check out the collection in full at


I mentioned these guys a couple of posts back. Butan Wear have just launched a whole bunch of new hoodies and they’re superfly. Also great for keeping warm during the current grimness of winter (if they’d brought them out sooner maybe i wouldn’t have the stinking man flu i do now).

Get them before you cooler younger brother and his hip hop chums beat you to it.

I was up in Joburg a couple of weeks back and got my hands on a splendid gold print Butan Wear t-shirt. Now i’m about as Hip Hop as Paris Hilton these days but everyone has room for a bit of bling in their life. Note to self if i pair these with the gold dunks it maybe treading over the line. I picked the tee up at Sowearto in Rosebank (lovely staff there by the way) which is ironic actually as they’re based round the corner in Cape Town (and have been since 2001…). I had to take it off on Saturday and change into something more harmless as I was getting funny looks on the streets of Calvinia (middle of nowhere, karoo) they ain’t feelin the ghetto obviously.
