State of Mind

This past holiday weekend, we spent our Black Friday at State of Mind in Whittier, CA. Our buddy Joel runs the place on his own and cleaned it up all spiffy for the event.

The line kept growing even before we opened the doors. Thanks to all who came and supported!


Gettin' hectic. Shopping time!

Thanks to the guys who repped L&O!

Some happy Glad Rags Ink customers sporting their own threads. Marcus of The Posse.

Lethal Art.

Jason (SwagSyndicate) swung by wearing our 2 Year Anniversary tee. Much love!

This guy actually recognized me from Dear Life, the band I'm in. Thanks for supporting the different parts of my life! Much appreciation to that.

Shopping spree!

Forget Sandlot. This is the Parking Lot.

And the moment you've been waiting for. The free tacos.

You get a free food coma with the free tacos, whether you like it or not.

Once again, thank you to ALL who came out and supported the store and the brands in it. It really means a lot to us and all the people who work hard to make these things happen.

Here's a peek at part of our Holiday 09 offering. The logo tees are back.

Branding is an integral part of any business industry, and we feel fortunate that so many of you are able to appreciate something as simple as our trademark logo because you know that it stands for something deeper and more meaningful. That's when you know you've truly left a mark on the trade.

More updates coming soon. Keep checking back as Holiday 09 production rolls along and make sure to follow our Twitter and Brian's Twitter.

Gonna need another re-fill to get through production this season.

El Mercado 6 Year Anniversary

Last Friday we made the trek to LA to witness a milestone in the streetwear community. El Mercado was celebrating 6 years of being in business and in this industry and our current economic climate, I'd say that's a damn good reason to throw a party.

Meet Ian. We got in touch with him while working with Elm Company and this was actually our first time meeting him in person. He's the mastermind behind the whole operation and I'm sure he will be first to tell you that being in retail and in streetwear isn't always fun and games. From what he was telling us, there wasn't much reason to celebrate last year in 2008 for their 5 year anniversary due to the economic downturn but now things are starting to look up. He stuck with it, made some sacrifices, and things are buzzing once again.

Coming from the viewpoint of a fellow small business, L&O and Glad Rags Ink would like to tip our hats to Ian and the El Mercado family for doing it big for 6 years, through good times and bad. Much love and respect.

El Mercado was definitely popping that night, and with free beer, good tunes, and $1 tacos I am not surprised!

Ah, refreshments.

Ran into our good friend Ace (DRTY KNUX) right when we got there. He was pretty twisted already and made fun of us for getting lost on our way over. Jerk!

Ian also introduced us to the gentlemen who run 9Grand. We only met briefly but looks like we'll be seeing more of these guys in the near future. Keep an eye out for them, their cut and sew is on point!

Of course, it wouldn't be a party without LA Lemon and Kutters.

We caught up with Garrett and Sifry to discuss some future projects and events. Our brands are like BFF's or something.

Such a clean looking store. Make sure to stop through and support your local shop!

Not a bad way to spend a Friday night in LA.

We are in the midst of planning a special event at El Mercado in early December, so stay tuned for details on that. You won't want to miss this one.
