Tactical Layering

Farm Tactics is a brand that has gotten a little bit of hype around the blogosphere and it's not hard to see why.  Repurposed materials, a growing collection, and made in the U.S.A. manufacturing are just a few of the reasons Kyle Ng's brand is on the steady come up.  I have been interested in these guys for quite some time, but had yet to find a stockist carrying some of the newer pieces from their ever expanding line.  Well, Context has two impeccable Farm Tactics crew necks up for preorder right now in shades of both blue and red.  I talk about crew neck sweatshirts a lot because they are an essential item that is often hard to get right.  Farm Tactics rolls with a pretty slim fit (think Japanese sizing), which is good in this case.  That's going to help eliminate a blousing effect around the waist and better suit someone who plans on layering pretty heavily in the coming weeks.  You can always get a cheaper crew neck, but I doubt it will be this nice as far as fit, quality and looks are concerned.  And it still comes in at under $100 to boot.  These babies ship Oct. 1st and I have a feeling we are looking at a potential sell out, so get on it if you want it.  If you have any questions about sizing you can always call up the Context guys and they will talk you through it hostage negotiator style.



  1. check this new collection arriving

  2. I'm sure Geoff is wearing one of these in Series 3 of Curb Your Enthusiasm. It's being a little stretched!

  3. Nice layering... but is it just me or is that guy's fly open?

  4. 7 Days of Big Boi: Day 6

    Get the South dick up out your mouth, what are you talking about
    See we know everything you're about, so try another route
    Paperboy, you can't destroy what we done built
    Pick on someone your own size, or fuck around and get killed
    But not like the kilt above you knees, BB
    Will plant you niggaz like seeds, or fertilizer for the trees
    Emergency vehicle last seen speeding from the scene
    Nigga, take one for the team now he's bleeding from the spleen
    Stay so fresh and oh so motherfucking clean
    No blood spatter or evidence, long distance with a beam
    We come in peace while some of ya'll niggas come in greed gluttons
    Fucking up the game like ice, heroin, or speed, slow down nigga

    Speed it up like The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, boy go fast
    Not a hobby, this my life, you disrespect it, that's your ass
    As one half of the Outkast, return like the ghost of Christmas past
    It's the son of Chico Dusty, must be West Savannah bad
    Had to got to church every Sunday with Great-Grandma and Grandad
    Taught me always follow Jesus when the grass didn't have a path
    If I ever fell astray, then God will get me back on track
    Didn't say that Rico, Ray, and Pat was getting with me and Three Stacks
    Then we spitting cuz we killing everything we attack
    Special Forces of this rap game, so you best take heed of that
    All that shit you rappers lack, we got plenty, here's snack
    Don't ruin their appetitie, cuz you shit is really wack
    Wack ass nigga

    Another battle one, Another story to tell
    Listen to the angelic plucking of strings
    As Sir Lucious puts his left foot forward
    And rides off into the horizon of infinite regression, victorious
    Undefeated on the battle field against the means of ignorance, greed, and hatred
    All contenders to the throne are left naked
    Because the truth is the only thing you can never be stripped from
    And if you want to commit to that truth
    Then you could end the vicious cycle that's affecting our youth today
    I you just stop lying, if you just stop lying
    Stop lying.....lying

  5. I can't believe Senor Schlossman posted something not made for the 65+ plus crowd. Bravo!
