So all things considered, Bread & Butter Barcelona could be hands-down the best tradeshow we’ve ever exhibited in. Surrounded with 1,000 of the best clothing lines from all sectors of the industry, multicultural food stations, live bands on 2 different stages, and a plethora of horrible Euro-haircuts for comic relief.. It was further bettered this year with the influx of American streetwear brands, and a growing awareness in Europe of what’s going on Stateside. It reminds me of what was going on with the Magic Tradeshow a couple years back once the buyers started to catch on as to what this whole thing was all about.
Gareth’s a good dude, and still charging hard with Pointer. The UK-based footwear brand is ready to work its way into the American circuit, so start dumping all your stale shoes now.

Oh yeah, that, and a LOT of cheese.
Danny (New Era London) gave us a look behind the curtain at New Era. Check The Feed for a glimpse of the London-exclusive Superhero pack.
And check Danny’s shirt (Yes No Maybe) for a glimpse of the dark thoughts of your twisted soul, pervert.
