Essentials: Justin Der of Foosh
OWNER AT FOOSH AND ONE HALF OF ALLOUT DJS
Over 10 years ago, Justin Foosh and Rob Clarke set out to create Foosh in the oil town of Edmonton, Canada. Set on the liberally-minded Whyte Avenue, Foosh became one of Edmonton’s defining pillars of streetwear, music and culture. With a strong element of music uniting Justin Der and Rob Clarke, Foosh has come to represent an all-encompassing lifestyle approach with Treehouse Records claiming its home in the back of the current Foosh store. With a successful business under his belt, Der and Clarke set forth on their new gastropub project, The Common. An equal focus on both food and music has provided Edmontonians with a new neighborhood hangout and once again contributed something inherently different to the scene — not unlike Foosh’s beginnings back in 1999. We caught up with Der as the Harley-riding misfit shared several of his HYPEBEAST Essentials which feature a list of utilitarian items ranging from business-related necessities to a Biltwell helmet and poop bags for his dog Olive. Notably absent are ticket stubs from Tiesto’s Edmonton stop back in 2007.
