Uploaded moments ago, our first ONLY NY range is now looking good on the site, aswell as instore. As it was our first drop we decided to test the water (and you guys love it already) with some basics: Logo tshirts, Snap-backs and Crew-necks - all in summery colours. Here's a few of my favourite items below:
One of the most popular tshirts we have had in-store in recent months has been the Marines t-shirt in Fir and Crimson colourways - consistently selling out, we finally got another batch in this morning!
This classic looking stripe shirt, will not be around all summer, so grab one fast!
Easter has always been my favourite holiday, extra long weekend baby :), and of course Easter Sunday ( or rather Easter eggs ). Well guess what? Today is that day.
Fat Buddha on Easter Sunday is a glorious place. I'm even including Old Firm Sunday in this gloriousness. Today myself and Pad got to do everything we needed while helping the beautiful people of Glasgow with whatever it was they needed!
Another positive surely has to be the fact that the weather stayed with us for the majority of the day.
This made me laugh this morning! Hope it brightens up your day as well :)
Spring 2011 and Diamond Supply Co is back in a very big way for Fat Buddha. After months of trying to get Diamond in, we got our first drop of 6 brand new tees - instore now - earlier this week! Sure to be a big hitter for us again, this is our first batch of product just in-time for the sun to come out.
Last week we took another delivery of one of the most consistent streetwear brands around: UNDEFEATED - aswell as the classic Block Logo tees, then we thought we'd got for something a bit special the U Cardy
The U Cardy - With a classic Letterman shape and chunky feel this is perfect for those cool nights. The U Cardy features thick wooden buttons and hidden front pockets.
I came across this site a few weeks ago - http://re35.net/ They claimed to have come up with a digital cartridge for your 35mm analog camera that effortly transfers your snaps into flash memory so you can upload them straight onto your computer.
It turned out to be too good to be true and doesn't really exist - however, it's gotten everyone talking about the need for a product like this. What do you think? Do you think that it would be great in saving both time and money when it comes to development and scanning? Or do you think it takes away from the whole idea of film photography - will the images ever really be the same? Will the digital aspect take away from the grainy, unpredictable nature of film that we all love?
Tonight I'm off to see funny man Peter Kay at Glasgows SECC, which as expected is completely sold out.

For those who don't know, Record Store Day aims to celebrate the art of music in an age where it's consumed in a multitude of different ways. This year (Saturday April 16th April 2011) will see 251 exclusive releases up for grabs. Record Store Day is celebrated worldwide, and sometimes special releases are available in one country, but not in another. This year theres rarities up for grabs from shop favourites like Radiohead, The Smiths, Arctic Monkeys and Nirvana. If you can beat the crowds, its worth popping in to your local record store for some eBay gold!
Coming in 3 different colourways, and a snip at only £69.95 - The Apollo headphones come with memory foam ear cushions, is iPhone compatible and comes with a handy travel pouch for taking them with you on the go!
When I was in Paris a couple of months ago I bought some film from the Lomography shop to try out whilst I was there. I had used some of their 'Xpro Slide 200' film before and loved it so quite fancied trying another colour positive film and so I picked up their 'Xpro Chrome 100'. Here's a few of my snaps from the visit -
View from Pont Neuf over to Pont des Arts -
Notre Dame Cathedral -
And, one from home - Glasgows 'finest' Architecture -
This films original intention is E6 processing as it's 'positive' film, however when cross-processed in C41 (as 'negatives') produces the lovely blue tones you get with this film. As it's 100 speed aswell it's still got some lovely fine grain to play with.
The best thing about this film is that recently we got it in stock into Fat Buddha! Only a few rolls however, so come grab some if you wanna try it out!
