New Neuw arrivals!

A ton of gems from NEUW just came in to the shop! Come try on these bad boys from the Black Rope Collection, plus a ton of other pieces for both men and women. We’re talkin’ a bunch of awesome denim, killer dresses, toasty sweaters, and so much more. C’mon what more could you possibly want?!

“Black Rope Denim is traditional rope dyed yarn wrapped in black wax. As punk redefined music, we have redefined traditional denim at it’s core. Black Rope denim customizes uniquely to the wearer revealing 3D layers and the distinct looks of blue and black.”

Neuw is a brand rooted in tradition, yet updated with modern fits and design. For that, we can expect high quality manufacturing with a touch of rebellion. Nothing showcases this vision more than the new Neuw Denim Black Rope Denim collection.

“We make the little shit better. The stuff you have that isn’t noticed first, but can’t be ignored. We pay attention to it. We argue about it. We work day and night to make the little shit as good as it can be, so when you wear it, you feel like you’ve got a leg up on the rest of the world.

We believe that you warrant a lot of respect. When you choose to wear a watch, put on your headphones, or select a wallet to hold your hard earned cash, you deserve to have something that reflects your entire package. You may not know how to say it, but you’ve got something to say and you can’t slap on an off-the-shelf piece and consider yourself you. That’s why in ’98 we started Nixon and that’s why all these years later, we’re still here.

Nestled comfortably against the Pacific Ocean in Southern California and with offices tucked neatly next to some of the best spots in Europe, Australia, and Asia you’ll find Nixon people doing what we do. We make accessories to reflect who we are and the life we live. We travel all corners of the globe to experience life and it is through these explorations, the people we meet and the journey to get there that takes shape in the things we create.

It started as a frustration at a lack of quality watches that simultaneously do the talking for you and has since grown into a group of athletes, rock stars, retailers, and dedicated loyalists that bring Nixon products to market. Fueled by adventures far and wide and often sometimes by those that happen just down the street we deliver products that meet your needs in various high-stress work and play environments. It is through our dedicative team’s perspectives that we contribute to a single unified expression: team-designed, custom-built accessories for a life well lived. Welcome to Nixon.”

Women’s styles from left to right:

Valley (Everyday winter)
Stay cozy in a soft and fuzzy blend of wool and angora, while a springy arch support keeps feet lifted.

River (Tomboy Athletic Lite)
Get swept away in a roaring rapid of print and color and dip your feet into a blend of premium combed cotton and springy elastic arch support.

Outsider (Tomboy Athletic Lite)
Despite its name, the Outsider sock is definitely in with the in-crowd—everyone wants a little face time with their plush combed cotton feel and off-kilter-cool stripes.

El Paso (Tomboy)
The El Paso sock is a perfect pattern tribute to the Lone Star State. Pamper feet with premium combed cotton and put a spring your step with their elastic arch, all while a deep heel pocket cradles and contours your feet.

Cold Rush (Everyday winter)
Swath feet in cozy comfort with a blend of fuzzy angora and wool, while deep heel pockets and a seamless toebox make wintery treks less terrible.

Women’s Invisible Boot socks from left to right:

Helena (Invisible boot)
If boots were made for walking, than ankle boots were made for seriously strutting your stuff—easier said than done when your slippery socks keep making a break for the bottom of your shoe. Enter the Helena, a stylish stand-in that won’t let you down. The secret’s in the Invisible Boot fit—just tall enough to keep ankles cushy but low enough to keep your solution hush-hush. They’re the best boot sock you’ll never see.

Classics (Invisible Boot)
It’s a new cut on a true classic that stays subtle under ankle boots. Why? Because some things never go out of style.

Rudy (Invisible Boot)
They made the Rudy with a blend of buttery soft combed cotton, and added a bit of spring from Spandex so they’ll stay snug under boots.
