Ludwig Van “Submission Series”.

August 10, 2014

For the grappling nerd in all of us – I’m proud to reintroduce the “Submission Series” prints and t-shirts! INspired by my passion for all things wrestling/grappling/jiu-jitsu/judo – what you see here is based on my experience over the many years on the mat. “Have fun with it!”. The prints are 13″ x 19″ Giclée prints printed on museum quality archival paper and this is the second edition (of 25). But what about the t-shirts! GET THEM HERE direct from our partnership with long-time cohorts Digital Gravel. Digital Gravel has been bringing you fresh new gear since the late 90′s! and they are the proverbial “OG’s” in the game. If you OR somebody you know is a #Jiu-Jitsu nerd – DON’T SLEEP! They will not last for long!

Ludwig Van X Gourmet…lost fabric

September 28, 2013

This is a story about original deadstock “mitchell leaf” camo circa 1970. What you see below is how it looked in the first samples of the now collectible collaboration: “Ludwig Van X Gourmet” – Utility Project. Check the upper…see that camo detail? – well, the bummer is that it was ‘lost’ when it was shipped to the manufacturing facility…needless to say at $45USD per yd/ this made my heart drop when i heard the news…But – you can enjoy them here. Enjoy.
