This past weekend was a fun eventful one. The good people of Primitive Shoes/Apparel turned five. Now if you remember 2008 you would recall it not being considered by most the best time to launch any new business due to the fact we were hitting the biggest recession in recent history. While I am sure a lot of businesses who launched at this time failed there was also a number of them who succeeded and I can say it is awesome to know that Primitive is one of them. Whatever they did, they did right and it shows how they grew from a tastemaker shop to a full on apparel brand. I think it has to do with how the guys behind it look at their approach to doing things and along with that remembering to give back to the people that support them. This year they held their annual b.b.q. that goes on in back of the shop and then the following day they held a X-Games after party event at club Icon in downtown L.A. So today I am gonna post the photos from the b.b.q. at their shop which was filled with a lot of smiles and some quality food from the good people at Free Range. It felt more like family event then a gathering of acquaintances which was fitting for the day and leading up to their next party which was much different. So check the photos below remember to swing by their shop and wish them a happy 5 year.
