The Brooks wallet comes in Black and Pecan, features a curduroy finish with leather script label and zip to keep your cash where it's meant to be.

What's Happening this Week

This Thursday sees the truly innovative Sepalcure make their live debut at Glasgow's Sub Club in what is sure to be a night to remember for bass music fans.



Sepalcure is a collaboration between two veterans of the dance music scene, Travis Stewart (MachineDrum) and Praveen (Praveen & Benoit, Braille).  They create what could be described as Bass music with influences from house, synth and heavy use of atmospherics and haunting vocals.



This evolutionary sound they have arrived at really makes them stand apart from todays bass music producers.  Which can be heard on their self titled debut album released at the end of last year.  In addition Travis Stewart is moving to Berlin from their New York base, casting doubt on the future of Sepalcure.  So catch them while you can.




As well as the music those attending will be treated to the collaborative work of Florence To and Produ(k)t who will be taking over the Sub Club with an installation and creative visual experience for this special event that you will not want to miss!

Check here for a preview - Sepalcure Installation

If you need some new threads for it check our web site here.

Catch you there

Nike Giving Something Back


Nike show us once again why they are one of our favourite brands over here at Fat Buddha Store. In a run down area of the lower east side in New York at the city's Masaryk Housing Towers project, Nike basketball has built a gym for the area. As part of their reclamation project Nike installed a brand new locker room, regulation full basketball court and even a scoreboard. The gym is ran as a private club right now, a select choice of pros and local New Yorkers are only allowed in right now but come April residents of Masaryk Tower's will take over the gym and make it their own. Amazing to see brands like this give a little something back to the community.
Visit us Instore and online at Fat Buddha Store for a great range of Nike products available now.

Whats on this week!

This Thursday sees Roots Manuva take the stage at Glasgow's the Arches as he tours his fifth studio album 4everevolution, and I for one am pretty excited.



Roots manuva isn't your typical British Rapper as his blend of hip hop with reggae, dub, electronica and even gospel and lyrics about the soul really make his sound stand out.



 This may be down to him growing up in East London around the original soundsytem culture and having a father who was a preacher, which he claims not only influences his music but the way in which he lives his life.



His 2001 release "Run Come Save Me" gained him a Mercury Music Prize nomination and featured the classic "Witness" (voted the greatest UK hip hop tune of all time by readers of Hip Hop connection.  His influence is said to have opened the doors for future British atalent such as Dizee Rascal and the streets.

He will be touring his latest album which is said to be his most accomplished and well crafted to date.  He is a legend and a must see for all music fans, not just grime heads.  Get your tickets here!

Roots Manuva is one souave individual, Loakes shoes look like they'd be right up his street check them instore and online now.

Hottie of The Week - Cassie Ventura

This week we are showing love for the one and only Cassie Ventura.  She's had a place in my heart for now and for ever more after she released her first single Me and You in 2006 (the song was a belter an all).






With a new album to be dropping sometime in early 2012 on Bad Boy Records we can expect to see a lot more of her this year, I don't think anyone will be complaining.  Here's a teaser for her next video King Of Hearts -


And its not just us that love her either in 2010, London bass hub Local Action released a free remix album of Cassie's work by artists who were inspired by and adored her such as Lunice, Jacques Greene and Brackles plus many more.


As well as this we also saw a collaboration with Diamond Supply Co. x Cassie X Estevan Oriol which consisted of four tees in two different colourways with Cassie prints on them, if you managed to get one lucky you!


Cassie we love you.  Sadly we dont have any of these tees in stock but we do have a whole lot of other Diamond here.

Carhartt Release Shirt


Carhartt's new Release Shirt has been one of the new products to arrive at Fat Buddha Store for 2012. Alongside some other great pieces Carhartt's new range up's the game, maintaining the brands high level of quality, attention to detail and eye catching design. The Release Shirt's horizontal pinstripe pattern looks great on the garment and is visually pleasing on the eye. Featuring a button down collar shown below and front pocket detail this shirt could be worn casually or lend itself to the more smarter affair.

With the pinstripe remaining as popular as ever, it's nice to see Carhartt putting their own spin on things. Made from 100% Cotton and finished off nicly with a small Carhartt branded tab on the chest pocket this shirt truly looks great. Keep your eyes peeled for some more of the brands new range appearing on here in the next while, and also for their special collaboration with NYC's 5Boro. Available Instore and Online at Fat Buddha Store.

Tellason Denim

Here at Fat Buddha we are very excited about 2012 for a whole host of reasons.  Firstly we have a bunch of exciting new brands brands that will be coming to you lucky people in store and online over the next year.  The latest addition being Tellason Denim.



Tellason is a San Francisco based denim collection launched by Tony Patella and long term business partner Pete Searson, the name comes from both their second names put together "Tella - Son", giving a story behind the name is something they found important.

Check out this video for an insight into the brand - Tellason

The company have an ethos of respect and a passion for qualirty and integrity of distribution.  These factors make Tellason stand out as every detail from fabric to the way they are sewed is treated with equal importance, making them that little bit special.



For example the fabric used to create the denims is from Cone Mills' White Oak plant in Greensboro, known for providing the denim industry with some of the highest quality denim since the 1700's, which is then cut and sewn in native San Francisco.  Then every finished pair is examined by hand, thats what I call attention to detail.

Laidbroke Grove Slim Tapered 12.5 oz

Heres two of the pairs we will have in, you may notice the nod to the band the Clash in the names of each denim.  Laidbroke Grove being a Clash song and John Graham Mellor aka Joe Strummer from the same band.

John Graham Mellor Slim 14.75 oz
We are truly honoured and proud to have Tellason denim gracing our shelves.  Watch out for their arrival on our facebook page here

Carhartt Spring Summer 2012

The upcoming Spring Summer 2012 Collection from Carhartt has been ordered and should be available in store and online by next week.  Check out this teaser video for the collection from Carhartt - 



This is a really nice collection, it still maintains the traditional Carhartt workwear influence however they manage to bridge the gap between fashion and utility wear with the use of American heritage combined with more street inspired details.

Contrast Pocket T-Shirt
 This collection has a bigger focus on the "Work In Progress" name which helps it differentiate it from the original US Carhartt workwear line.  While still maintaining the high quality which we have grown to expect from Carhartt.

Check out the full lookbook here

The Spring/Summer 2012 Collection brings a really exciting offering of garments from headwear, shirts, outerwear, denim, trousers plus a whole load of accesories such as wallets and belts.  As one of the biggest stockists of Carhartt we are super excited about it and you should too!



We should have stock in store and online by next week so be sure to check it out!  Untile then check out what other Carhartt we have here.
