TMZ Dude Wears Katin

Guilty pleasure, soo bad you cant stop watching… what ever your excuse for watching TMZ, we’re stoked to spot the long haired dude on the TMZ show sporting the latest Katin clothing. This guy (Max Hodges) might be doing a bad Spicoli impression, but the Santa Cruz local actually surfs and heckles every D-lister who dares step foot in the south bay.

The “Nose tee” he’s rocking is in Katin’s latest line of hand crafted apparel. The custom vintage detail is unique to this surf company that’s been killing it in the south LA bay since the late 1950′s.

Trouble Andrew X Electric Visual: The Mags

It’s no coincidence that Electric Visual teams up with the likes of Kyle “Rowdy” Busch, and now “Trouble” Andrew. The misfit crew at Electric celebrates counter culture activities, producing the most cutting edge eye-wear styles in the underground. Trouble Andrew’s signature shades “The Mags” are a blend of street style with high-fashion swag that even has a blinged out logo.

Here’s how he describes this new style:

Trouble Andrew interprets his fringe genre of music as “Electro post punk country pop with douche wave mixed with douche core. Its douchy crunk rock sk8 punk douche, you douche.” Listen for the remixed Black Flag and Agent Orange beats as he spits rhymes about the highs and lows of partying his ass off. The Brooklyn native is currently on the coast to coast “Slumerican” tour with Yelawolf.

See the schedule for a stop near you and enjoy this track from his mixtape.

Check out this hot new Electric style before they’re all swooped up
