Outlaws! Scoundrels!! Scalliwags!!!
These were the kids my mom warned me about. Oh well. Sorry mom!
Jason Acme (CSBC) runs through the studio…
although his left foot’s draggin’ a little heavier these days. Not sure how he made it over here, but nevermind, I won’t ask.
So here’s some news. Over 2 years ago, we published what ended up being one of our most widely-regarded Chronicles on one of our The Hundreds brethren, whose name is now renowned in the sneaker-collecting community: Corgishoe. For those of you who may recall the article, (you can still check it out in The Chronicles ARCHIVES) we documented Corgi’s collection of 2,000+ fresh vintage sneakers which had never been seen by the public until our feature. That article ended up bringing much of our initial readership to the site, (including the attention of New York Times Magazine journalist Rob Walker, who later went on to write the cover-story on our brand).
Unfortunately, the same week the article launched, Corgi was shackled away. For the past couple years, he’s maintained behind Federal bars, on a steady diet of dry chicken, canned vegetables, and ESPN radio…until 2 weeks ago. Now he’s back, (albeit on the same diet, and yes, listening to ESPN radio on his beat-up radio walkman all day) and if you’ve ordered anything from us online the past few days, this man has probably been the one who filled that order.
Welcome back, Corgishoe.
Time’s stood still. Check that o.g. UNDFTD tee. Since all of his clothes have stayed crispy for the past couple years, his closet is like a time capsule of pre-web-derived streetwear tees. (Yesterday, he wore our Sinatra tee!)
He said it. Not me.
What’s it take? A motor from a walkman or other rudimentary appliance, a guitar string, and home-made ink made of shampoo and burnt flower soot. Taa-daa! Prison tat.
And for all those who know, yes, he still wears the same wrecked New Balances. Every single day.
Over the afternoon, we headed down south of LA to hook up with the folks behind the next brand you’ll obsess over,…
…introducing Stacks & Bundles.
All cut-n-sewn t-shirts and hoodies, with all kinds of screenprinting you never knew existed. Stacks has already landed at some of your favorite upper-echelon boutiques (including Grey One).
More to come, kids… start saving.
