If you’re like us, you’ve watched the same holiday movies for most of your life, year after year. After all, nothing quite gets you in the holiday spirit like spending some quality time with the Griswolds or fantasizing about your own Red Ryder BB gun. We decided to pay a visit to the real holiday […]
They’re everywhere you go these days. They’re in the grocery store, the laundromat, on every station you can pick up on your car radio. Holiday tunes will be inescapable for the next month or so and their omnipresence, while sometimes annoying, is also intriguing. What do we really know about all these songs we’ve been […]
It’s that time of year again: Watching your co-workers awkwardly dance, pretending to remember the names of your husband’s interns, watching others sheepishly open Secret Santa gifts as you hover near the “punch” and request All I Want For Christmas Is You to the DJ. It’s Holiday Party season! Usually you’d pull out your trusted little […]
A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to have our good friend Karl of Rogue Territory fly in from L.A. for the sixth installment of our Meet The Maker series. At the shop, Karl released two items exclusive to Need Supply Co., the Drake Camo Ar-G Trouser and work shirt. Amongst the festivities, we sat […]
The wonders of space, matter, solar systems, the earth, mountains, waters, and atoms that hold it all together will more than likely always be a constant and ongoing question until the end. All it takes is one clear night; a quick glance at the sky, and more questions can fill your head than you can […]
YEARS is an insanely amazing project produced by Bartholonäus Traubeck. It literally tells the life story of a tree in musical form. The modified record player reads the tree like it would a vinyl record and interprets the tree rings into an impossibly haunting composition. Technically speaking, it reads the rings by its light and dark value and […]
First of all, if you’re from Richmond, you’ve got to admit the fact that Baltimore’s Future Islands played at The Camel is awesome. Samuel Herring’s voice and energy sounds like it could literally be heard all the way from Baltimore. He’s got more character than a Disney movie and a tone that sounds like it could […]
Checking Thrasher Magazine at least once a day should be a requirement for anyone with a soul.

On our most recent trip to the big apple, we ventured into Brooklyn to meet up with the brilliant minds behind the label In God We Trust. Not only were we impressed by the merchandising and use of space in their Greenpoint shop, but also when we were invited back to peek into their studio […]

Okay, okay, so I know the holidays are over, The Nutcracker blah-blah-blah, but that is no reason to shy away from the brilliance of Tchaikovsky and the gracefulness of ballet dancing, not to mention the killer costume wardrobe and, in the case of this video, the Marie Antoinette meets 2000 Gwen Stefani-esque hair-dos. They really […]
This past season’s Holiday Package was a long labor of love. It was exciting to see each piece from idea to completion. A special very special thanks to Blanchards Coffee Co for their caffeinated wisdom, Big Secret for the laser engraving, Richmond Soap Studio for their knowledge, patience, getting the scent of our soap and candles perfect, and Adam Hogsett […]
What’s not to love about Bianca Jagger? Besides marrying Mick (famously in YSL), hanging with Andy, and playing muse for Halston, she’s also a social and human rights advocate with a laundry list of charitable work under her very fashionable belt. The Nicaraguan stunner was all-out glam while making the party circuits in the 1970′s and […]
Who said dancing was dead? You’ve obviously not kept your eye on NYC. NextLevel squad out of Brooklyn continue to be one of the most notorious flexers or “bonebreakers” out there. Zilla March shows an amazing look into the current state of street dancing that’s going on. Think you’d be scared seeing these guys on […]
Talk about making use of small spaces- Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa made a truly inspired home in Tokyo out of just 8 x 4 m (or about 26 x 14 ft). The house takes the great outdoors very seriously, and moves it inside, using an array of garden life and no walls to keep the inside […]
So here we are at the countdown of 2011 and the lists are coming. Top 10 this and top 10 that. Finding everyone’s 10 favorite of 2011 shouldn’t be hard to do. However there are some lists that do need to be seen, such as the top 10 motorcycles of the year from BikeEXIF. Gracing […]
So over the holidays, our dear friend (and former site model) Brandon came to visit us from his fancy, far-away digs on the West Coast, and aside from making him model all of our new Gitman Brothers Vintage shirts, I had him throw on some of The Hill-Side pieces as well… Here is just a […]
The act of book carving or book sculpture is nothing new. If you’ve browsed around the internet, the chances are you’ve seen people cutting away at books, folding pages, burning the tips, and creating incredible works of art. And then there is Guy Laramee who changes the entire game. “The erosion of cultures – and […]

We found the full downloadable soundtrack and bloopers reel over […]
There’s really nothing like sitting around a roaring campfire in the middle of nowhere with a few of your close friends. That ring of warmth around the fire attracts everything from cold toes and damp socks to amazing stories and pinch of solitude. Toss in a warm thermos of dark roast coffee and that night […]
Once in a while you stumble across something on the internet that is worth every single penny. No matter what it costs. Thus when we realized that for only $1,165 we could be riding around on our motorcycle in a fully functional Storm Trooper suit, we started to count our pennies. Officially licensed, this replica […]

A long time ago, a time during warm weather and lush trees, a time where skirts and tank tops were everywhere, we were on a bike ride through Richmond. It was on this bike ride when (for no apparent reason) we recaptured the many reasons why we love cycling so much. The next day we […]
These vintage photos of Maureen and Noreene came from a lot on eBay, and ended up on flickr. The Irish-American twins, thought to be from Texas, clearly had amazing style and fun-filled lives. The photo set depicts the girls from the late 1930′s up until the 90′s, and is definitely worth a look! See the […]

Cory Richards doesn’t write any fashion blogs. He doesn’t follow trends and probably doesn’t even own a collared shirt. He has, however, survived avalanches, come close to death, saved his friends’ lives, and climbed more alpine first ascents than most could dream of. He is a climber, a photographer, an alpinist, and the first American to […]
There are so many reasons why Leandra Medine, aka The Man Repeller, is one of my favorite bloggers. She’s got a totally wacky sense of style (and the confidence to carry it off) and is funny as hell, just to name a few. According to Leandra, being a Man Repeller means “outfitting oneself in a […]

I took a gander at the workspaces tumblr after Krystle posted an amazing photo of Jenna Lyons’ office, and haven’t stop looking at it since.

It was literally the other day that we were asking ourselves, “What in the hell is musk?” Besides the obvious scent for men, what does “musk” entitle as far as scent? What’s the history behind the scent? Well, it’s Sunday evening and we just so happen to come across the answer we were looking for […]
