We've put together a list of KH essentials to help de-stress your Christmas shopping. Orders of $50 or more qualify for free shipping within the U.S., so grab a couple!
Shirt Nine ($32) blends Surrealism with a Rat Pack vibe.
Shirt Ten ($32) is a minimalist presentation of our motto, "Confidence + Humility = Grace," translated into Latin. Available in Denim Blue (pictured) and Washed Red.
Thanks to 2 new colors & the kind words of our friend James Stacey on The Grey NATO podcast, our supremely-comfortable Washed Pocket Tees ($30) have been flying out the door! Available in Denim Blue (pictured), Eggplant, Smoke, and Teal.
Our newest release, the KH x Crown & Buckle Lizard Camo Premium NATO Strap ($16), pays homage to the quirky, lesser-known "lizard" camouflage pattern. Most closely associated with French paratroopers in the 1950s, lizard camo was a descendant of WWII British brushstroke patterns and a precursor to Vietnam-era tigerstripe patterns.
And the KH x Crown & Buckle Cardinal Red Premium NATO Strap ($16) is a deep, vivid shade of red sure to bring any watch to life!
The Recognize Crew ($72),features oversized direct embroidery of our "Recognize" motto on a heavyweight Champion® crewneck.
Shirt Fourteen ($32) will keep their eyes on the prize.
Our wool felt Traditional Pennant ($24) is a nostalgic finishing touch for any bedroom, media room, or home office.

Happy Birthday to Mavis Staples—a true national treasure. Been listening to one of my all-time favorite performances (from Martin Scorsese's documentary "The Last Waltz") to celebrate.
The short version is that Shirt Thirteen came about because I love the college-inspired typography of Shirt Twelve so much. But working "Recognize" into the Kill Hubris lexicon hasn't been quite that straight a line.
Coming of age in the '90s, I heard "recognize" every time I turned around (particularly in West Coast rap). Admittedly, I wore it out myself. If we know each other IRL, you know that the majority of my vocabulary comes from Friday and Tombstone, but—outside of work—a good chunk of the remainder comes from the music I grew up with. As a result, it felt natural to use "Recognize" to succinctly emphasize the responsibility each of us bears for the way we conduct ourselves. It also has an exhortational quality that fits nicely with the concept of arrogance as a self-imposed obstacle, thus the tagline—First Rule Of Holes: If you're in one, stop digging.
Over the years, I have brainstormed, sketched, and commissioned other "Recognize" designs. I even produced one of them four years ago but shelved it at the last minute because it didn't feel all-the-way right. In contrast, everything about this one feels right, and I'd like to thank Bobby Cerda for his typographical expertise on both Twelve and Thirteen.

Caught the double bill of a lifetime Saturday night.
The upcoming Recognize Crew features embroidered, college-inspired typography similar to that of Shirt Twelve.
Sadly this was never released because Liam was absent with a "sore throat." Noel channels the resulting frustration into an energetic performance.
Now that the holiday rush has subsided, I didn't want to let another minute go by without expressing my gratitude to each of you for your support and encouragement in 2015. Kill Hubris continues to punch above its weight thanks in no small part to relationships started online.
You each have my heartfelt best wishes for a fulfilling, healthy, and prosperous 2016.

This is all I've been listening to at my desk lately.
I knew this show took place because "Linger" was included on my Very Best of MTV Unplugged import, but I'd always wondered what became of the full recording. Glad to learn it wasn't lost to time and bootlegs.
(Yes, Vimeo... but I found it after following several YouTube rabbit trails. And the quality is much better.)
