Naked & Famous Skinny Boy “Glow in the Dark” Denim - Since their inception in 2008, the good men over at Naked & Famous Denim have been pushing the boundaries in the world of pants. Not only do these guys create well-fitting, quality garments but they also only use the most unique and rare denim fabrics from Japan.
In the last couple years, we have seen everything from the heaviest jeans ever created, the 32oz selvedge denim jeans (which you might have seen standing up on it’s own at the Capsule last summer), to the delicious Scratch-n-Sniff raspberry scented raw selvedge denim pant. However, their is one style that really made an impression on us and had us all in awe at parties or “inna da clubs”, our favourite, The Glow-in-the-Dark denim pants.
Now, Naked and Famous has decided to step up their game in the world of “teeny-tiny” and offer up their Glow-in-the-Dark denim pants to our youth.
Made from phosphorescent coated 9 oz. (98% cotton, 2% elastane) denim, the Skinny Boy literately absorbs light, and slowly releases it in the dark. Each pair will include a mini blacklight flashlight which activates instantly the coating and allows the wearer to actually draw vanishing images on his or her pants. How exciting for any kid!
The Naked & Famous Skinny Boy “Glow in the Dark” Denim pants will be available exclusively at Blue & Cream in sizes 2 – 12. Get ‘em now!

Nike SB Janoski for Toddlers - Having been quite popular with both adults and kids, it was only a matter of time before Nike would introduce the favorite SB Janoskis in itty bitty baby sizes.

As the younger generation of skate kids appear to be introduced to the sport at younger and younger ages, we think that Nike is really moving in the right direction with this release. Good moves.
