Eleventh Commandment would like to wish you a merry xmas. We hope you're on Santa's good list this year. We're not holding our breath.

Play safe and be good to your family. We'll leave the last word to the one and only Tim Minchin.

HMAS Eleventh Commandment @ Lucid Laundry

One of the coolest stores in the country is undoubtedly Lucid Laundry. With two stores in Brisbane (Fortitude Valley and New Farm), the Lucid crew have a sweet layout with some of the best labels going around including Ksubi, Nudie, Alice McCall, Maurie and Eve, Shakuhachi, Flux and of course Eleventh Commandment.

All those that have visited the Lucid Laundry store in Fortitude Valley will have seen the rad little moat running around the shop. Recently we decided to make something pretty for said water feature.

Say a'hoy to HMAS Eleventh Commandment - a remote control pirate ship with custom-made premium denim sails:

Now the Queen doesn't usually award the 'HMAS' title to remote control pirate ships but when we showed it to her she lost her shit. And it wasn't just cos she's really old. Anywho if you're around Brisbane you should definitely drop into Lucid Laundry to check out this floating beauty and stock yourself up with some killer threads.

EC - This is probably the only time I'll ever post images of anything in my bath. Unless you ask nicely...then you might get something really special

Xmas Rage

A campaign started on facebook in the UK has, for the first time in four years, stopped another lamo from X-Factor scoring the number one single at xmas time.

And who did they push to the top? Rage Against the Machine's 'Killing in the Name' was announced as this year's number one festive song - 17 years after its release date- with over 500,000 copies being purchased in the last week.

I'd like to give a massive high five to the guy that started this campaign...probably with an 'on the side' and a 'down below'.

Thought we would chuck this track up, firstly because it's a rad tune but also because our friend Tanya is in it. She's the one getting her grief on at 2.52. Enjoy

Lunatics competition winners!!

Our Lunatics competition is now closed and hot-damn did we get some good photos! Thanks to everyone that submitted entries - there were some fantastic shots of some beautiful and not-so-beautiful people. So without further adieu...

Third prize: Earning herself a year's supply of free hugs and a bottomless sack of kudos is Natalie aka DJ Femme. Natalie is the babe behind the decks throwing down some banging beats and styling in our Midas Touch 2.0 singlet.

Second prize: Staking claim to silver is Katie in our Enjoys Coke singlet for this photo with her and the Jager girls. We would offer her some kind of fake prize for this effort but by the looks of it she already got some quality grope action and we think that's a prize in itself.

And finally the ultimate Lunatic, by unanimous decision, congratulations to Brendan for this photo featuring both our Gingham Ain't Easy tee and Harlequin jeans. Brendan receives a $200 gift voucher to use in our online store and the opportunity to show off his finely sculpted gluteals to the millions (approximately) of women that visit this blog every day. Better than any singles video. Well played sir.

We will be launching another round of the Lunatics comp early next year. That gives you plenty of opportunity to take lots of silly snaps over the silly season and send them in for your chance to win free threads and glory.

Tim Minchin

We went and saw Tim Minchin at the State Theatre last night.

And holy shit he was amazing. He is by far the world's most hilarious / talented / ridiculously intelligent ginja ninja.

I'm sure a YouTube clip won't really convey his brilliance but it was either this or dragging him to each of your doorsteps and forcing him to perform at gunpoint just so we could get our point across.

Couple have sex on Broadway clock tower

Was anyone around Broadway / Victoria Park yesterday afternoon? If you were you might have been able to check out this amorous young couple getting freaky in front of a bunch of astonished onlookers.

We don't know if the girl really likes the guy or if she's just into him because he's got a big clock.

Controversy Fashion Parade for Movember

This Friday night we're taking part in a fashion show at the Sapphire Lounge in Kings Cross to support Movember.

This is probably the best way in which we can contribute to Movember considering neither of us can really brew anything resembling a legitimate moustache.

You might think we're a bit hypocritical sharing the bill with a certain label considering this but to be fair it's for a good cause.

That being said maybe some bad blood is appropriate on a night called 'Controversy'. If you come to the show you might just see some.

I'm a sucker for a flash mob. This is all kinds of rad.

On a sad note four people drowned while the lifesavers were focusing on the dance. But it was worth it.

Kill Your Idols

Recently we got word that one of the dudes in Australian Idol was wearing our gear. Naturally we jumped on his bandwagon and wanted him to win the comp.

- Stan Walker in Treble in Paradise singlet:

But then the following week this chick rocked out in our I Heart Boobies singlet.

- Hayley Warner in I Heart Boobies singlet:

Now we're in somewhat of a dilema, kind of like what I imagine a parent faces when they are forced to choose between two children (albeit two children they don't care about all that much). So probably more like choosing between two step-children.

This analogy is quickly running out of steam, but the point is whoever wears the most Eleventh Commandment proddy in the final will get our undying love and adoration. And the other one will have to go and live with their weird uncle Remus.

Dirty Laundrette

If you're cruising around Surry Hills anytime this summer you should stick your head into a new pop-up store called Dirty Laundrette. The crew there have nabbed some prime real estate on the corner of Crown and Campbell and have picked up a bunch of wicked labels such as Insight, Flux, Fortunes Fool and of course ourselves.

If you head in there in the next couple of weeks you'll also be able to check out a window display we've done for the store.

Or you could just look at the pictures below and tell people you've been to the shop if anyone asks. But the pictures don't really do it justice and that'd make you a liar, so it's probs best to just get off your ass and go pay Dirty Laundrette a visit.

Welcome to the second round of our adventure into the seedy underbelly of fashion on the hard streets of Sydney.

What...too dramatic? Well I've written it now and I can't really be bothered writing something better. Plus the backspace button is all the way at the top of the keyboard.

Anyway enjoy the looks and let us know what you think. (Comment below)

Eleventh Commandment on Radio Metro tonight

"Flick your radio on to 105.7 tonight between (7 - 7.30pm QLD time / 8 - 8.30pm NSW time) for an interview with Henry Holland from label Eleventh Commandment."

It's not every day you get a message recommending you listen to an interview with yourself, but that's the message I just got.

Yep I'm going to be interviewed on the Gold Coast's Radio Metro, which is by far Queensland's greatest radio station and possibly most powerful media outlet (as far as we know).

The interview is taking place in the lead up to tomorrow night's Night of Fashion bonanza at the Ruby Tramp in celebration of the launch of No Name Lane. If you're in the area make sure you get on down to this event - there will be fashion shows, giveaways, pretty people, alcohol...all the ingredients for a night to (try to) remember.

The Down & Dirty DJs will be playing as well, which is reason enough to get involved. Those boys always bring the party.

If you're keen to tune into the interview tonight you can catch it on Gold Coast freqency 105.7 or jump onto the Radio Metro page ( and click 'Listen Now'.

Don't know why I'm the one being interviewed though...Josh is the one with the face for radio.

We've finally got our mits on some pics from the Not Just A Label pop-up store that happened in Notting Hill last month. And god-damn didn't they make the place look sexy. Congrats to the whole NJAL team for putting on such a rad event, we've heard nothing but good reports.
