VINTAGE SNAPBACKS

October 17th, 2009

We’ve had our 2nd drop of vintage snapbacks.  The first load sold so quick I didn’t even have time to blog them so for those who missed out we’ve got a 2nd batch.  All brand new, unworn and around 15 years old, we’ve got caps from some of the greatest NBA & NFL teams of all time but just one of each so pleeeeaase don’t sleep.

HACKSAWS CHALLENGE

October 13th, 2009

So it is time for the 2nd BTG event…

FIXED GEAR ONLY

This time we have gone for more of a straight race rather than alleycat. The start will be in Bristol, Water Front, Canons Road. The Check point will be in Bath, Queens Square and the finish line will be back in bristol where you started.

You can choose which route you take as long as you are riding your bike.
The Race will be starting at 4 but make sure you are at the start for around 3 so i can get you all numbered up.
Fancy dress is optional, but i think it would be pretty funny if everyone dressed up.

CRACK & SHINE

September 6th, 2009

“Graffiti is perpetually and increasingly a controversial subject dividing opinion and rousing powerful debate, yet almost nothing is known about the true motivations and inspirations of the artists themselves. Crack & Shine offers exclusive insight into this thriving contemporary sub-culture, gaining access to the personal stories of some of the most secretive, enigmatic and creative individuals to lurk in London’s shadows.

Featuring forty of the most exciting and prolific graffiti artists to have lived and painted in London, Crack & Shine is the only London graffiti book ever to be published. Also presenting the work of London-based photographer Will Robson-Scott, Crack & Shine includes a series of over 50 beautifully-composed photographs, created exclusively for the book; giving articulate and vivid insight into the awkward moments of waiting, the apprehension of hiding and the calm and stillness that comes with seeing the world from an altered perspective.”

We’re proud to say we now have a few copies of Crack & Shine available at Donuts.  Click here for more.

Oh Yeah Yes Please YES

Donuts The Store, Buffalo Trace and Allthatgoodstuff presents..

ohyeahflyerfrontweb.jpg

An exhibition of recent work and stuff by Daddison.

The term ‘fingers in pies’ just doesn’t do justice to the extremely talented Daddison. The illustrative mastermind behind our own events’ posters currently carries out work for Kung Fu London, Blowpop, The Tube and Dutty Girl not too mention countless other websites, magazines, books, publications and other such bits and bobs. His unique style is instantly recognizable and we are really proud to play host to his first solo show in a while at Donuts with all new mixed media offerings. ‘Fists in blancmange’ maybe seems more appropriate….

Opening Preview Friday 14th August, 6.30pm – 9.30pm at Donuts, 1-2 Perry Road, Bristol, BS1 5BQ.

Music on the night provided by DissMiss, John Stapleton and DJ Rogue and free drinks provided courtesy of Buffalo Trace Bourbon and Red Stripe.

Keep X Patta Benten

July 13th, 2009

keep_x_patta_large.jpg

“In celebration of Patta’s 5th anniversary, we’ve joined forces to create a special limited edition Patta x Keep Benten! Cruelty free as always, the uppers are made entirely of synthetic suede. It’s a new twist on our oh so popular boat shoe silhouette. Did we also mention that each pair comes with a durable, matching Keep X Patta tote bag for your everyday?”

So say Keep about this highly anticipated collaboration.  Patta always bring something sick to the mix, as seen a year or two back with their Asics Gel Lyte III which became pretty much the most sought after sneaker of the year.  This time they’ve teamed up with Keep and we’re proud to say we’ll have these available on July 25th.  Needless to say these will be EXTREMELY limited numbers-wise so holla on 0117 929 2625 if you want to talk pre-orders….

Second Son

December 5th, 2008

A few really nice new pieces from our friends at Second Son online now…

fairisle-white.jpg

“Regarded as a pioneer of the “athleisure” footwear movement, in 2001 Clae launched its never-before seen hybrid collection that delivered the comfort of a sneaker with classic footwear styling resulting in a new definition of casual. Driving the new found athleisure category, Clae was awarded the Sportswear International Fashion Award (SIFA) for “Best Men’s Footwear Collection” in 2003. Committed to quality, detail, and style Clae is returning, after a three-year incubation, with some cult classics and newly revamped models for a consumer market place craving a fresh take on footwear.”

Ok so we’ve been sitting on 4 sick styles from Clae for a minute now but we’ve at last got ‘em up and available online. Sorry bout the wait…


Vice are running a series entitled “Creative 30″ on their website this month and today it’s the turn of Charlie from A.IN.T to get the props. We got a lot of love for A.IN.T, they hooked us up a dope exclusive colourway for our grand opening last year and this season’s collection, dropping later this month, is the fucking business. Check the profile here…

Donuts 2.0

September 6th, 2008

The new Donuts at 1-2 Perry Road is open for business!  After a successful 11 months at the old location we’ve made a step up and are settling in to our new store which previously housed Workshop.  New brands in already like Cheap Monday, Clae, False, Keep, Pretty All City and Too Much Posse, plus we got new shit from CTRL and Trapstar and in a couple of weeks we’ll be the only shop in the country to take delivery of the incredible Penfield Colourblock range IN IT’S ENTIRITY.

The NLLR Mixtape Project

June 18th, 2008

So I got invited to a Facebook group the other day and joined, kinda expecting the standard, irritating inbox clutter that would cause me to leave that group again about a day later. But, holy shit, this group is actually amazing… It’s a series of exclusive mixes from some genuinely innovative DJs and it’s all free. And there’s a new mix every friday. The most recent one from Bok Bok & Manara is banging, as is the one our friends Tomb Crew did a few weeks back. Check it here.

Donuts VS Dirty Canvas

June 15th, 2008

So Friday night was pretty nuts… Teaming up with Dirty Canvas from London we brought Ghetto to Bristol and it was unlike anything I’ve ever seen at Tube before. The dancefloor was packed and all up the stairs people were going crazy, film crew in attendance… Just madness. There’s gonna be more pictures and video surfacing but in the meantime check out this little snippet from Ghetto, and big thanks to Robin from Dirty Canvas, Ghetto, Magic and Icekid, Rattus, Amo, Skull Juice and all you peeps that made it down.  Much love.

False preview on SlamXHype

June 11th, 2008

A new brand for Donuts this season is False and we are most excited and proud about this one. This is False’s 5th season collection and the focus is very much on quality. Simple black and white designs hand printed with hand made screens and ridiculous attention to detail, this will be dropping at Donuts in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime there’s a preview on SlamXHype and also an interview with creative director Le Messie.

So the Myspace for London’s hypest Thursday night YoYo just got a reworking courtesy of our boy Ben Monsta.  He’s kept it clean and it looks fresh as hell.  We love ya Ben.  Check it out here.  And don’t call it YoYo’s…

DJ Ayres More Drugs Mix

Another good free mix for y’all. This one’s getting a mention cos Ayres kicks things off with Juan Maclean’s Happy House and I’m proper loving that tune at the moment…

January 29th, 2008

Our boy Ben Monsta swung by the shop today to give us a preview of his new range of crews and tees and his shit is looking fine as ever.
