Picture this scenario:
We produce a product that we consider to be a blank canvas. We contact Leo Lyxxx, a long time friend of ours who passionately fills blank canvases for a living. Done!...Yes, it really was that simple to get this collaboration off the ground. So why Leo Lyxxx one might ask? Well from our end it was pretty much a "no brainer". Leos artistic expression is humorous, playful, eye catching and executed with a great deal of craftsmanship. What more could one ask for? We gave Leo free hands to create, and in exchange Leo opened his brain archive and pulled out the most obscure 80's horror flicks and dreams of jungle expeditions. The result was a wide array of prints now available to everyone.

If you happen to be one of those lucky bastards living in the southern hemisphere this blog post might not make much sense to you, but if you are stuck up here in the cold northern with us you know what we’re talking about. Winter’s coming and you are desperately trying to figure out how to make those long, cold, dark days go by. Well, wonder no more! Frank will give you his best tips on how to make this winter seem like a walk in the park, without actually having to take one.
Play video games – Yeah, it’s a no brainer, if you don’t have GTA V yet go get it right now! That ought to keep you busy for some time, plus it’s always summer in Los Santos!
Cook – Not only do you need to eat more in winter, cooking is also a nice indoor activity that kills a lot of time if you just go for those slow cooking recipes. Also: you get to eat it afterwards, hurray! And remember: eating alone is boring so invite some friends or a neighbor or parent or whomever over to share the meal with you.
Do charity – Not all charity means standing in the freezing cold giving food to the homeless or trying to get people to sign a petition. You can help challenged kids with their homework, help a new citizen learn the language or help out at a local shelter. There’s a lot of websites helping you find a suitable organization for you, just google volounteer work or charity work in your language. Doing something for others not only is good it feels good to.
Go Cultural – If you are like most people you hardly set foot at a museum, theatre or opera this summer, and no shame in that, summer is for the outdoors. But now it’s time to get your cultural capital refilled, spend your Sunday in a museum and know that you get to treat yourself in the café afterwards for good behavior.
Create something – DIY is hot, and it’s fun! Build yourself a bookshelf or a chair or borrow a sewing machine and make a totebag or a t-shirt or something. Having something in your house that you made yourself is a daily reminder of your own capacity and excellence. Unless you completely fail, in which case it’s a constant reminder of your inadequacy and inferiority.
If, however, you happen to be unlucky enough to have a job, school, friends that needs visiting or you just have to go to the store to buy food, don't miss out on our long johns, leggings and beanies in the Winter Accessories department here on Frank Dandy:

1. If your underwear rip or torn in any way, just throw them away. Don’t be sentimental about old underwear, just let them go, you will feel relieved afterward we promise.
2. Don’t wear loose underwear with tight pants. It looks weird and it feels weird.
3. Take care of your underwear to make them last longer, don’t throw anything but pure cotton underwear in the dryer, so let all boxers with say a microfiber lining (like more or less all of our high quality underwear at Frank Dandy) hang dry.
4. Make sure your underwear is high enough up and have good support, to spare your fellow citizens the sight when you bend over to get that pen you just dropped.
5. Make sure you get underwear that’s actually your size. Follow the size guide and measure your waist if you’re uncertain, here’s our size guide for Frank Dandy’s underwear:

Want to put your new Frank Dandy swimwear in an awesome setting?
-Here's Frank's top 5 favourite beaches in Europe for you!
1. Turkey: Butterfly Valley, Fethiye
This beach is not for the couch potato, you either trekk here in the mountains (about an hour each way) or you get here by boat. But it sure is worth the trouble! This beach has no electricity, water scooter rental or other nonsense, just sand, water and total bliss (and a laid back hippie-style restaurant, no need to starve).
2. France: La Côte des Basques, Biarritz
This untamed yet exclusive beach has been a popular surfing spot since the 50's, and still is! The bars and restaurants surrounding the beach serves tired sunbathers and surfers great cocktails in a relaxed surfer friendly establishments.
3. Spain: Playa de ses Illetes, Formentera
White sand and crystal clear water on each side of the beach. This place is magic! However avoid it during tourist season, the best time to visit this little piece of heaven on earth is in September. And be sure to not miss the fantastic sunset!
4. Greece: Myrtos Beach, Kefalonia
One of the most beautiful beaches in the world for sure, this is a must for anyone planning a trip to Greece this summer (if you weren't already planning one, maybe you should start doing so right now!). Hidden at the bottom of a steep mountain, this beach feels like a hidden treasure to any visitor. This beach has been voted best beach in Greece 12 times, go see why!
5. Portugal: Falesia Beach, Albufeira
The white sand stretches for several kilometers with beautiful red cliffs making it look almost surreal. This beach is truly original and has all amenities you could ever wish for, without loosing it's untamed flair. If you can muster the energy needed to walk some few hundred metres away from the contact points you can also enjoy a bit of privacy.

Nu har äntligen våren visat sig på riktigt och sommaren står bara runt hörnet. Därför är det dags för oss på Frank Dandy att presentera vår sommarkollektion för 2012. Det är en ny sprudlande kollektion som går i lite mildare toner med inspiration från havet och dess flora och djurrike. På ett av trycken ”Spice Ship”, ses skepp med anor från ostindiefararna runt 1700 mitt i Sverige och är ett perfekt utryck för sommaren med vind i seglen om man är ute på havet. Känns inte det riktigt som dig så finns det givetvis andra alternativ med allt från fiskar, reptiler och mönster som ger dig en riktig sommarupplevelse. En personlig favorit från kollektionen är Saint Paul Badbyxorna som kommer i en läcker purpurlila färg med vita detaljer. En riktigt stilren badbyxa med en twist. Ett bra supplement mot ett vitt linne i sommar när man är på väg mot stranden.
Kolla in hela sommarkollektionen här och berätta för oss på facebook vad du tycker!
