Dressed to kill in a red and white-striped suit, complete with a silver studded belt and jeweled sleeves, Huck Gee’s latest Dunny is even more badass than the GID Comic-con colorway. True to form, this latest, limited version of the iconic Skullhead is crafted with exquisite detail – tight vertical stripes, intricate paints, and a custom HG-initialed tie.

Skullhead’s massive skull features embedded crossbones, and with his articulated head and arms, and removable wings, this 8-incher is primed for lethal action.

This latest incarnation of Huck Gee’s so-called Bastardized Asian Pop Culture bears its creator’s mark front and center on his broad bone forehead.

Limited to 650 pieces.

Price: $80.00 – SOLD OUT

The Monocle Support Japan Bracelet is produced using leather from tanneries in the Miyagi region, where the earthquake and tsunami ravaged Japan. One side is embossed “Support Japan,” the other “Brooklyn Tokyo x Monocle.” Contrast stitching and adjustable button fastening complete the made in Japan, for Japan, package. One more way to help, and this time you can up your style game in the process. $16
