The Bronze Trade.

I've always been a fan of homegrown talent and brands and this debut collection from The Bronze Trade is no different




Strong, bold tees and graphics and a decent first foray into the game, I can see this brand flourishing and growing to be a big time player in the Streetwear community.

Their first wave of products went online today, check out the lookbook video below:

All That Remains

I am going along to see one of my favourite metal bands tonight in the Garage, All That Remains and I am fairly excited. It got me thinking about music and how every one of the Fat Buddha staff has such a different taste in music. Between us all I think it's safe to say we like every kind there is! (Except maybe country music...) This is a good thing, it keeps the genres and new bands on the playlist nice a varied.

So I had a little wander round the store to see if we sell any music related products and found more than I thought I would! We have the cool KISS t-shirt from Popularity Bear and the MTV styled Carhartt t-shirt too.


I also found a few music books and gadgets... 


Lastly, we have our quality range of Urbanears and Zumreed headphones, essential wear for everyone these days...




Here is my favourite All That Remains song to warm you up and also a wee video I love from local Glasgow band, Bleed From Within, who are providing support for them tonight... Good times!

White Saturday.

If you're lucky enough to live in the States you'll maybe have got a chance to experience the legendary 'Black Friday'.

Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. On this day, many retailers open very early, often at 4 a.m., or earlier, and offer promotional sales to kick off the shopping season. Black Friday is not actually a holiday, but many employers give their employees the day off, increasing the number of potential shoppers!

Some of Fat Buddhas premier brands got in on the action and had some crazy sales (50% off at The Hundreds, 30% off at Rebel 8 and 30% off Benny Gold etc etc)


After all the comotion of 'Black Friday' - it was a suprise to wake up to what i'm calling 'White Saturday'








Baffled by this weather I thought I'd be a good sport and stick up my favourite coat from the Carhartt Winter collection, to tackle these conditions, the Hickman Coat:








Already we have sold out of our first wave of this badboy - so act now before the snow gets worse!

Primative x The Hundreds

The hottest skater of the moment is arguably Paul Rodriguez or 'P.Rod' as the fans know him, so its no suprise to anyone that his retail boutique (Primative) has teamed up with - again - arguably the hottest streetwear brand of the moment: The Hundreds



The Hundreds x Primitive is available in limited numbers, and exclusively sold at Primitive, THLA, THSF, and THNY.
