El Rancho Deluxe :: 21 April 2014

“Why call this ‘El Rancho Deluxe?’ Our family used to have a house in the Mojave Desert. There was a farm-house nearby with the most eclectic collection of rusted farm equipment. The farm had no official name, but we lovingly called it El Rancho Deluxe.”

Megadeluxe Rubber Stamped (American Apparel) T-Shirt: Perfect Imperfection

For the past few months we’ve been experimenting with rubber stamps to make our own t-shirts. But like Edison and the lightbulb, we had a few dozen spectacular failures. (Do not worry, only distant relatives were harmed in the process). Using traditional rubber material (that we laser-cut to get exceptional detail) and an in-house secret fabric ink formula – we’ve nailed down the process of making a unique t-shirt.
 
The cool thing: each time you ink up the rubber stamp, the tee comes out a little bit different. No two of these American Apparel t-shirts will ever be the same, and we like it that way: perfect imperfection.

Riding a Royal Enfield in the Shadow of Giants http://megadeluxe.com/videos/a-royal-enfield-in-the-shadow-of-giants?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=a-royal-enfield-in-the-shadow-of-giants http://megadeluxe.com/videos/a-royal-enfield-in-the-shadow-of-giants#comments Sat, 19 Apr 2014 16:41:49 +0000 http://megadeluxe.com/?p=33811 While traveling home from Sri Lanka, filmmaker Andrew David Watson decided to check out Ladakh, an isolated mountain region in the most northern tip of India. Even though it was the end of winter there, he was able to rent a 350cc Royal Enfield to do some exploring, and ride in the shadow of giants.

Riding a Royal Enfield in the Shadow of Giants

“I wasn’t planning to make a short film. I only had my 5d, a few lenses, a still photo tripod and myself. Yet the beauty, isolation and impression of the mountains of Ladakh didn’t let that happen.”
– andrew david watson

 

Andrew David Watson: Filming this was a lot of fun, minus some freezing cold mornings. It was just my camera, a Royal Enfield and myself. I was totally solo. I would set up a shot, ride away then ride through the frame. Since it’s a really remote area I didn’t have to worry about anyone taking my camera! Whether its bicycles or motorcycles, I often prefer to ride alone, as I find it extremely relaxing and freeing. This adventure was the perfect example of realizing how insignificant you are compared to the great wilderness and mountains of the world.

Once again we commissioned artist Damian King to work his “speed” design aesthetic. (We must have had twenty long conversations alone on the look and feel of our thirties racing car). If you like this tee, order one soon since Damian’s last design for us (a limited-edition t-shirt) sold-out within days.
 
Offering two verisons: silver-gray, and slate gray. Jersey short sleeve is made by American Apparel.

Prototipo Chronograph By Autodromo http://megadeluxe.com/gear/prototipo-chronograph-by-autodromo?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=prototipo-chronograph-by-autodromo http://megadeluxe.com/gear/prototipo-chronograph-by-autodromo#comments Mon, 31 Mar 2014 18:19:47 +0000 http://megadeluxe.com/?p=33633 New Prototipo chronographs from Autodromo. I dig two things about Bradley Price and his company Autodromo. One, his encyclopedic knowledge of motorsport history – we go back and forth on Instagram and he never fails to add detail to a vintage car or race. Second, Autodromo: his racing inspired line of watches and accoutrements (gloves and sunglasses) are spot on in both detail and style. The Prototipo line continues on this path. Bradley just sent a recent Autodromo shoot from France. Jealousy ensues.

Prototipo Chronograph By Autodromo

“The Protoype Era in racing was a time that saw legendary drivers compete in equally legendary machines. Fast, colorful and dangerous, Prototype cars ushered in the modern technological age of endurance racing, and wrote the final chapter in the long tradition of open road racing in Europe.”

Prototipo Chronograph By Autodromo

The Prototipo draws aesthetic inspiration from vintage racing chronographs of the late ’60s and early ’70s, but with clean, modern detailing at every turn. Powered by an innovative Seiko hybrid meca-quartz movement, the Prototipo features a sweep second hand and instant chronograph reset thanks to internal mechanical linkages shared with Seiko’s in-house automatic movements. Prototipo delivers the reliability and precision of a quartz watch, with the crisp pusher feel and visual delight of a mechanical chronograph.

In addition to timepieces, Autodromo has a line of sunglasses (Stelvio) and racing gloves (Stringback Driving Gloves).
