All Over Print

Throughout our years of doing what we do, we've had the good fortune to meet and become friends with people who have helped us gain exposure in places we wouldn't normally be found. Our very good friends in the band Winds of Plague just got back from a successful European tour and are getting ready for a grueling schedule on this year's Warped Tour. You can also find them on the cover of the most recent publication of Alternative Press' Mini Mag. Oh hey, and there's Johnny Plague showing love with the tank top!

Fun fact about that tank top: we actually only printed a very limited run of logo tank tops and t-shirts for the bands we work with so that they could have some "beater" garments to wear on stage. We did so that they didn't have to ruin their actual L&O products that we would give to them. We never actually printed any logo tank tops as part of our collections before but since everyone has been seeing them being worn, we've been getting a lot of interest. If you would like to see us release some basic logo tank tops and t-shirts again, let us know on Twitter and Facebook!

Art stopped by yesterday for a quick meeting to discuss some plans for an upcoming collaborative project we have between our brand and their band, so stay tuned for that! It'll be surfacing much sooner than you think!

Art wanted to get in on the planking action too.

Make sure to also check out this month's DUB Magazine featuring UFC fighter and #1 contender in the lightweight division Gray Maynard! Thanks to our dude Melloe Won for getting this all hooked up!

Check out Gray rocking the L&O tees and the LABELS watch! I'd say that's a "knockout" combination.. see what I did there?

What better way to celebrate the arrival of Spring than with a t-shirt full of the natural beauty that it brings? This time around our logo is embedded with a cluster of cherry blossoms printed in full color. Anytime you see cherry blossoms in real life you have to stop, look, and appreciate its unrivaled beauty. Maybe everyone will do the same thing when you walk into the room wearing this tee!

The Blossom Tee is now available in our ONLINE SHOP and on Karmaloop. For those of you who would like to support your local shop, please check our RETAILERS page for an L&O dealer near you!

As many of you already know, the craze known as "planking" has taken the internet world by storm. People everywhere are participating in the viral hilarity and posting photos online of themselves "planking" on random objects and places. As you saw on the Mobile Monday blog, I posted some teasers of our guys doing their thing. Our staff here at the office wanted to get involved so after work the boys started testing out their own "planking" skills. Ridiculousness ensued..

Even after we left the office, the madness continued! It's getting out of control!

PLANKING! Get into it!

Mobile Monday - Best Friends Forever

As promised, I will be blogging regularly again. Our website has been neglected but it's time to change that so hopefully some of you will continue reading again! One thing I want to add to our blogging repertoire is what I will call Mobile Monday. Since everyone on this planet is now equipped with smart phones, I want to start posting photos that we've taken while out and about. Sometimes you don't always have a DSLR readily available for every photo op, so you have to bust out your iPhone, BlackBerry, or Droid. Here's what we've been up to:

It's no secret that we've got love for our friends. L&O would be nothing without the love and support of our circle of friends. The previous weekend, I took a few of my friends ice skating in Pasadena. This rink actually means a lot to me. It was the very first ice hockey club team I played for when I was a child and we even ended up winning a Southern California Amateur Hockey Association championship. I was one of the captains on that team so my coach even let me keep the championship cup trophy!

After working up an appetite on the ice, I took my friends to a place that also reminds me of childhood - Lucky Boy Burgers in Pasadena. My family would eat here all the time after my hockey games and practices and we would always get a larger order of their chili cheese fries. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite burger joints ever.

The next day I came across a deal for some great seats at a Dodgers game for cheap! Fortunately the boys in blue came out with a win and we got to see Rod Barajas go yard!

Every Friday night home game, the stadium invites the fans onto the field for Friday Night Fireworks after the game so luckily we got to experience that. I've personally never set foot on Dodgers grass so this was a treat for me!

Later that weekend, some friends and I made a day trip to Long Beach in search of a hangover cure. We found it at Ports 'O Call in the shrimp fajitas plate. 1 1/2 lb of seafood glory.

After stuffing our faces, we stopped by the shore to check out some tide pools and appreciate the beauty of living in Southern California.

Yesterday, one of our friends invited everyone over for a BBQ and bonfire. Nothing beats good food, good vibes, and good company. Life is good.

I'm sure most of you have seen photos like this going viral around the world. Well, we've started to join the fun at the office. PLANKING! Get into it!
