No Rival’s brand new t-shirt, “Elephant’s the New Black” just hit TRUE in San Francisco and TRUE East in Walnut Creek. If you want to be the first on your block rockin’ this out, get down to either one of these TRUE locations and grab one before they are gone!!!

Check out the design below. The front of the shirt is hit with a beautiful crest of an elephant, poached for his Air Jordan elephant print skin. Nice!!! The back says "Elephant's the New Black", but we always knew this. The colorway complements your favorite Air Jordans...at least ours. The rest of our accounts will be receiving these shirts throughout October.

No Rival on Built From Skratch (Episode 48)

No Rival is featured on one of the most recent episodes of Built From Skratch on the MYX Network. We are featured on Episode 48, which is an episode dedicated to hip hop influenced apparel.

You can view the episode locally on Comcast through the "On Demand" channel. Once you arrive at the "On Demand" welcome screen, simply follow this path: Get Local--->Lifestyle--->MYX: Built From Skratch. Again, we are featured on Episode 48.

Built From Skratch is an HONEST hip hop lifestyle show. Here is a little background on this fantastic effort...

Built From Skratch features in-depth interviews with today’s top indie and major label acts, including mc’s, dj’s, and producers. You’ll find elaborate features on hip hop clothing and fashion. You’ll look at the world through the eyes of the illest graffiti artists, and witness the timeless art of breakdancing. Hip Hop is arguably the most influential culture in the world today, and Built from Skratch is the homebase for the people that drive and create the culture – from the music to the art.

Built from Skratch was spawned in the Bay Area and carries a Bay Area mentality. We roam through hip hop’s various regions– the West Coast, the Dirty South, the East Coast, up North, uncovering top notch talent, and exposing the artists that deserve the shine. Within the broad scope of hip hop lies many subcultures and genres, each with a unique vision of what hip hop is. As you travel outside the Bay and across the country into different regions, more and more hip hop genres and styles present themselves, each adding to the broad definition of what hip hop is.

The aim of Built from Skratch is to expose the top artists that make up hip hop’s “Four Elements – MC’ing, DJ’ing, Graffiti, and Breakdancing.” These are the artists that are expanding the culture and the reach of the music. These are also the artists that make hip hop not just a music, or a dance, but a culture and, in essence, a lifestyle. You want the bangin blaps? You want the dopest gear? You want illest artists and dancers? Producers? Magazines? DJ’s? Radio Stations? Hip Hop’s movers and shakers and tastemakers? It’s all right here on Built from Skratch…only on Myx!!!

The World of Dance is the largest U.S. urban dance and hip hop competition.

Our homeboy, Pharside, from the infamous Supreme Soul will be a featured judge at this year's show. I heard the Lost Kids from San Francisco will be performing AND Smart Mark from Phresh Select out of Philly will be representing.

On another note, NO RIVAL just picked up a new distributor in Northern California. You can now find NO RIVAL goods at "The Edge". "The Edge" is one of the best independently owned men's clothing stores in the Bay Area. The store carries over 70 different labels ranging from denim to wovens to tees to watches AND shoes. They specialize in casual denim-inspired attire, pulling from the fashion forward L.A. and N.Y. scene. The shop has a clean and contemporary style and is very comfortable to browse. A friendly and knowledgeable staff always greets customers as they enter the store. Customers are also offered a complimentary bottle of water or coffee to fuel their shopping. Oh...and the bottled water...it's the store's own brand of water!!! DOPE!!! This is a store that caters to the male shopper with discerning taste that expects nothing but the best. If nothing else, stop by to see what REAL customer service is like. Be sure to check out "The Edge" if you are in the East Bay...and pick up a NO RIVAL t-shirt!!!
