Exclucity New Dix 30 Location
Montreal-based sneaker and clothing store Exclucity has been doing big things over the last two years, including the Galaxy Foamposite and Yeezy 2 releases. Exclucity has been known to do it big. When their second location opened in the Downtown area of Montreal, they sold pairs of Galaxy Foamposites, Jordan Concord 11s, Cool Grey 11s, Jordan YOTR 7 and of course the pair I picked up, The 30th Anniversary Camouflage Air Force One.
Exclucity has now announced a third location opening on December 7th, in the Dix 30 area of Montreal. Gentry Humphrey (Fomer General Manager of Jordan Brand for the uninformed) will be in attendance to answer questions, take photos and sign autographs (don't forget, shoes count as things that can be autographed). Gentry spent many years as the head of Jordan Brand and has now moved over to Nike to fry bigger fish.
Exclucity has also announced a chance at winning a 1000$ shopping spree in which the winner will be announced at the opening of the new store. The contest opens November 27th and closes December 1st. In order to enter you must visit either the West Island or Downtown location of their store. At the same time they are having crazy Black Friday sales that you can take advantage of between the same dates as the contest entering.
Keep your eyes and ears open as Exclucity will be announcing a list of sneakers that will be available at the openeing of the new location. Expect a crazy line, no matter the weather.
French singer Laurence Nerbonne has definitely caught our attention. The music for her catchy single "Montreal XO" represents the city's vibe in all types of ways. This simple yet powerful music video was shot in Montreal and directed by Julien Demers Arsenault. The Montreal-made video features local talents and we even spotted some MARKANTOINE clothing in there. This is the kind of indie-pop release that will get stuck on loop in your mind (in a good way) as you rewatch it for the Nth time to...

Montreal DJ and Producer Shash'U has released yet another visually appealing music video, this time for his single "Ur Body". The track is off his ‘80s-inspired PWRFNK EP in which we have covered in his full interview piece as soon as it came out. Putting a playfully creepy spin on his roots in the professional street dance world, this body part-swapping clip directed by William Fradette takes viewers to “the lab” for real. A modern-day wink at the ol' fashion Frankenstein story, but with a...

Era Istrefi is an Albanian Kosovar singer-songwriter. She rose to fame after releasing her debut single "Mani për money" in 2013, and she's definitely caught our attention with her latest music video for "Bonbon" which you can watch above. Although you might not comprehend the lyrics, the whole thing will definitely be easy to digest as it is very similar to any good pop hit that could potentially play at the club. The beat which was produced by Cricket, BigBang & Toton is strong. It's...

We're always on the cusp of wanting to know what local Montreal designer Pedram Karimi has got up his sleeves. His avant-garde image brands him as a designer who likes to make garments that could stand-alone as art-pieces, and he definitely knows how to pick the right models to showcase his looks. His Spring/Summer 2016 campaign is in, and we are getting great vibes from it. Featuring long necks and perfect bowl-cuts on adrogynous models, filtered by a blue-silver tone, which ties in the old...

“Man braids” are apparently the newest trend that will hit the heads of menfolk this year. I’m sure their braids will look pair so well with other trends like beard baubles, mustache glitter, and whatever other Pinterest-fueled fad that looks more fun than practical. Beyond the fact that braids can’t be a new trend (cough cornrows cough), my main annoyance is with the name. Man-braids. Man. Braids. MAN. BRAIDS. It follows the same formula as the "man-bun". Adding 'man' in front of it is...

In case you forgot who Roosh V was, let me sully your mind with this summary: Roosh is the creator of The Return of Kings, a website that promotes “neo-masculinity”- which just a fancy way of saying a movement based on extreme insecurity and blatant misogyny. Roosh has sparked protests across the world after attempting to share his teachings about neo-masculinity and being a PUA (Pick Up Artist). Roosh received a lot of criticism for attempting meet-ups in Canada, which lead him to disguise...

With the tilt shift process, Montreal...

The Hangover. A morning consisting of a fuzzy, fried and foolish brain. I shamefully walk into work (after the guy whose face or name I can’t even remember drops me off) and reminisce on the one night stand the night before. Where are my undies? Well fuck. Where's my phone? In the pool. Where's my dignity? Lost. drank. Staring at the remnants of the kebab and goon and Vodka and Baileys and every other alcohol mixed to mankind infused vomit on my shoe, along...
