TheGoodLife! x Coal Necessities for Fine Living: Volume II – Featuring Ian Longwell


The “Necessities for Fine Living” campaign keeps rolling, or sailing rather, as we catch up with musician and producer Ian Longwell as he takes a cruise around the island of Manhattan with his lovely girlfriend Laura, a bottle of rose, and a baguette and brie. If that’s not fine living we don’t know what is. See Craig Wetherby’s photos after the jump. Video by Eddie Grams, music by Roofeeo for TheGoodLife! x Coal Headwear.

TheGoodLife! FC x House of Marley World Cup Clubhouse

TheGoodLife! FC x House of Marley World Cup ClubhouseDo you ever dream of having your very own clubhouse? A place where you and all your friends can kick it free of all the distractions of the workaday world? Well we had that same dream too and this summer we made it a reality with TheGoodLife! FC Clubhouse! Partnering with our brethren at The House of Marley we took over The Cardinal restaurant in Manhattan’s Lower East Side to create an oasis of epic proportions that became our home away from home for the month-long football fest that was the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brasil. Alongside our friends at NoWhere FC and Avery Dennison we pounded PBRs while Marley speakers pounded tunes from the irie setlists of Jasmine Solano, Roofeeo, Skotch Davis, TJ Mizell, BLK ARK, DJ Gravy and more. We lived the triumph and the defeat of the US Men’s National team over fish sandwiches and tequila grapefruits and we toasted the Germans on their triumphant run while recreating key matches as 2 v 2 games on the only concrete mini-pitch in NYC. In other words it was the best summer ever. Almost everyone we know was there at some point but if you weren’t don’t worry, we got something even bigger planned for 2018. Until then enjoy this mega batch of old fashioned film photos by Craig Wetherby that perfectly recap TheGoodLife! FC x House of Marley World Cup Clubhouse. Thanks to everyone who was involved! Words by Tim Brodhagen.

TheGoodLife! FC Repeat Final Four Finish at adidas Fanatic Cup 2014

TheGoodLife! FC adidas Fanatic Cup 2014With sunny 80 degree weather and the Manhattan skyline gleaming in the background, it was a picture perfect day in Brooklyn for 28 of NYC’s toughest clubs to battle for all city domination in the 13th installment of the adidas Fanatic Cup tournament. Having just finished the Fanatic League under questionable circumstances, TheGoodLife! FC was poised to make an impression, and make an impression we did. With wins over The Ace Hotel, Alife, adidas Originals, and the Standard Hotel, plus a cumulative 24-3 goal differential, we blazed through our bracket and the quarterfinals until we were stopped 2-1 by Barney’s NYC in a hard fought semi final match. All in all it was one hell of a day. Huge thanks to adidas, Bradley Carbone, and our squad of Juan Aguiar, Stefano Fossa, Andres Sosa, Miranda Maxwell, Sigrún Eva Jónsdóttir, Vincent Mark, Jeff Greensleeves, keeper Noah Ritter, captain Timbo Baggins, and coach Craig Wetherby for making one of NYC’s most memorable events that much more memorable. Check out our epic recap in film from Coach Craig with words from the Cap’n right here after the jump. Can’t wait til next year!
