It's impossible to tell that LA is fucking freezing from a photo. Happy Monday!

By now you probably know that when we moved to LA we took over The Hundreds old building. But what you may not know is that our current warehouse manager used to be a shipper for TH and worked here previously. I recall telling Bobby that when they moved to Vernon they forgot something. I think I also said that he must have come with the lease. Jokes aside, I'm happy Daryl has come over to the 8 side. REBEL8 is a better place because of him. And with his crew, they are shipping out your Black Friday orders as fast as possible.
Here's a glimpse of our next drop. Coming sooner than later.
Last night The Hundreds took over Disneyland to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. It was amazing! I haven't been there since I was a kid and last night I miraculously transformed back into one at the historic theme park. I literally was running around screaming for hours. Great seeing a bunch of familiar faces and meeting quite a few new ones. Big thanks and congrats to our friends over at The Hundreds.
The Hundreds Are Huge, Inc.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Ran into a ton of rad people, but had to get a photo with my homie, the legendary skateboarder, Eric Dressen.
Snapped a bunch of photos riding Space Mountain three-times over (which is now my ultimate favorite roller coaster ever), but they all came out incredibly blurry. Follow my Instagram for more than once-a-day updates.
I spent the Thanksgiving weekend in Half Moon Bay. I was told I must have brought the LA weather with me, as HMB seldom looks like this. I've always lived coastside. I can't count the times how I'd end my days in SF with a decompressing bike ride out to Ocean Beach. Sucks that I seldom see water now I'm in DTLA. Nonetheless, it was rad to walk the beaches again if only for a few hours.
Now it's time for me to stare at these photos and try to remember what the good, clean, crisp air up North feels like, while simultaneously make sure your orders get out to you ASAP. Big thanks for making this Black Friday the biggest day in REBEL8 history! I truly appreciate it.
Happy Cyber Monday! Hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving. I'm still full.

Please do not hit refresh or click submit on your order more than once. That may result in charging your card multiple times. If we do have actual duplicate orders from you in our system, we will cancel and refund all but one. You do not need to email us.
If you see multiple pending charges on your credit card, but your order did not go through and you did not receive an order number, you will not be charged. These are simply holds on the funds by your bank that will automatically be released once they finish processing (typically a few business days). Your bank may tell you it is up to us to release these funds, which is completely not true. We do not have your money and there are no funds to release. Give it a few days and these will automatically be removed from your credit card. If we do have actual duplicate orders from you in our system, we will cancel and refund all but one. You do not need to email us.
Everything we have in stock is up on the website. We do not have extras laying around the warehouse or in a hidden box. Items will sell out FAST! Don't sleep on it. If you like it, grab it. We have no plans of making any more.
All orders will be shipped as is. We cannot add to, change, or remove items from your order or combine multiple orders. All sale items are final. No exchanges/refunds. So please order carefully. If a product is on your order but not on our shelves (out of inventory) we will automatically refund that product and ship the rest of your order out. You will only be charged for what ships.
You will get a tracking number once your order ships. If you have not received a tracking number by Friday the 13th, please feel free to contact us. ALL EMAILS BEFORE December 13, 2013 will be ignored. We apologize in advance for any fuck ups and will definitely make it right after Friday the 13th!
No, you cannot get the sale price applied to an existing order you placed seconds before 12:08AM PST November 29, 2013 or the day after the sale. No, any discount code you have will not work during the sale, nor can it be applied thereafter. They will be active after the sale.

Once again, THANK YOU for your business and support. Happy holidays!
It's All Black this Friday.
The name Mike Giant is synonymous with his graffiti moniker, Giantone, which has been painted on walls throughout the world thousands of times over. Giant's legendary stature in the underground graffiti art scene is built solidly upon twenty-four years of hard work, undisputed skill, and a keen distaste for authority and their laws of the land. Shot on the roof of our Downtown LA home base, the Winter '13 lookbook brings us back to our original graffiti roots while further showcasing the legitimacy behind the 8.

Over these past few days we've been shipping our Winter 2013 collection to stores worldwide. And while we typically give a longer window for product to land in doors before we release it online, that will not be happening this Holiday season. We now thrive in a huge warehouse with multiple ship stations and a competent staff that allow us to effortlessly ship both wholesale and online retail orders simultaneously. With that being said, thank you for allowing us to grow and become the strong brand you know as REBEL8.
"Don't Tread On Me" is what the top stair reads on the way to our second floor at R8DTLA.
Winter is selling out. Already. Go visit your local stockist immediately.
If you want a job in our spotless, absurdly organized, perfect-inventory warehouse, you'll need to report to Warehouse Manager Daryl. Good luck!
After an OCD-thorough cleansing and Hundreds de-branding of 1729 Wall Street, I thought I'd never find another Adam Bomb. But just minutes ago, this little fucker was spotted under some stairs. Safe travels, Adam. You are now on your way to Japan.
I also spotted the mysterious Giant.
He breathes smoke.
Just another hectic Tuesday. Join our newsletter (you can find the link at the top navigation bar). You missed some seriously huge news today if you aren't a subscriber. Don't let it happen again.
Had a nice little Saturday watching Giant paint. Hope you had a great weekend! REBEL8 Winter is coming.
I never shut the door to amazing talent. I'm looking to fill the following positions immediately: Graphic Designer, Cut N Sew Designer, Production Assistant, Bookkeeper. You must already live in LA. Email jobs@REBEL8.com with your resume and/or portfolio or website link. All other details including compensation will be discussed if I feel you're an organic fit to the REBEL8 brand. I look forward to your submission! Please note I will only reply if we are interested in interviewing you. Thanks for considering REBEL8 a real career opportunity.
10 years deep, we've produced and dispersed quite a few stickers. Today however, is the first time we received a million of them at once. Time to spread the 8!
Too busy to blog. But not too busy to give you a glance at Spring 2014.
It's rad to have big friends doing bigger things. Take Joey for example. He handles all operations for Diamond [Supply Co.]. They move more product in a single day than we do in an entire… Never mind. Fresh to see Joey still rockin' our Sk8-Hi REBEL8 x Vans! But equally upsetting to see him so damn comfortable on my couch.
And then there's me. Working endlessly while still trying to smile & breathe. Hold fast I tell myself. It gets better.
But as much great shit I do, and as much bullshit I get through, I wouldn't want to be doing anything else with my life. Thank you.
It still trips me out how much love you give REBEL8. But my level of being stoked on your support trumps any shock or disbelief of the great lengths you take to represent the brand. It humbles the hell out of me really. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Here are a little more than 300 REBEL8 tattoos that I know about.
And remember, while there are thousands of Mike Giant graphics inked on people across the globe, a REBEL8 tattoo is our trademark Diamond 8 logo, the words REBEL8 or Rebel Eight. If your REBEL8 tattoo is not on our tattoos page, please email it over to email@example.com.
I spent the past weekend in beautiful San Diego, and of course I left my camera at home. So while there are no photos for you today, understand there will be no memories for me ever. Stoners unite!
But on the bright side, the very first REBEL8 tee is finally back from framing and waiting for hanging. This original from 2003 was donated to the REBEL8 preservation cause by my homie Mike Padgett. It was all downhill from here.
