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.

A New Sunray Shines in Oakland, California http://megadeluxe.com/gear/sunray-flieger?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=sunray-flieger http://megadeluxe.com/gear/sunray-flieger#comments Mon, 31 Mar 2014 18:19:47 +0000 http://megadeluxe.com/?p=33803 Assembled by hand in his California Studio, John McConnico offers this limited edition mechanical wristwatch with old world quality and fresh contemporary styling. Well done my fellow Oaklander.

The Sunray Flieger Watch

“The Sunray Flieger is an aggregation of curated wristwatch elements. Having its roots in 20th century aviation history, the Pilot watch offers optimal legibility in a sleek package.”

The Sunray Flieger Watch

We have an admitted weakness for tool watches, especially if they’re referencing historical details yet are updated for a contemporary audience. John McConnico shares the same passion. Having been a watch collector and horology enthusiast for more than 20 years (and with a background in designing products and building brands) he’s spent the last year strategizing the design & production of limited edition timepieces. The Sunray Flieger is the first edition to be released.

The current limited edition watch is available in 2 overall styles (an Athracite Black dial or French Blue dial), as well as a special “Blackout Edition,” consisting of a PVD-coated black case with a screw-down crown. Additional upgrades are also available, such as Swiss ETA movement, Sapphire crystal, and leather strap options. John assembles each watch to a customer’s specifications, and in 4-6 weeks it is shipped along with a unique edition number, card of authenticity, and one-year warranty.
 
The primary goal of the project is to create a boutique quality mid-priced watch in an affordable package, with the customer relationship being paramount. As John puts it,

…the act of buying a timepiece is based on emotion and personal identity, in addition to practicality. A person should feel connected to a watch’s production, lineage, and DNA. It is this intimate relationship that will live along with each watch, and hopefully be carried on to its subsequent owners. We couldn’t agree more.

More information can be found on the Sunray Flieger website. John will also be offering a 10% discount for Megadeluxe readers. Enter the code MEGA10 upon reserving a watch: www.SunrayFlieger.com.

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.
 
Jersey short sleeve is made by American Apparel.
