Manchester menswear shop and woodsy dude haven Oi Polloi has gone full-throttle into the publishing industry, these days making about as many zines to read as clothes to wear. Their new endeavor is a collaboration with publishing company Project O, and they've merged the two mediums, matching a bunch of new printed publications from O with some awesome clothing, all in celebration of their favorite topic: the great outdoors. First up is a zine called The Acid Rambler, which pays homage to 11 notable men like Henry David Thoreau, Thelonious Monk and skateboarding pioneer Mark Gonzales. Polloi’s in-house brand Cottonopolis created a series of tie-dyed Acid Rambler tees to commemorate the launch, which are available now in very limited quantities. If you happen to be in London tomorrow night, make your way over to Project O’s opening party and exhibition where there will be a private viewing of the new ‘zine with guest author Tom Richardson, along with exclusive screenings of new short films curated by The London Surf Film Festival.
