[The Hundreds] - 2009 Discussion Thread

and since you mentioned outliers, what other business type books can you recommend? i read outliers and buying in by your request and they were both great.


Oh, last question/answer.

Ben loves The Art of War. I think there is some good, but some bad to that. All of Gladwell's books are good. I like reading books more on BRANDING, than BUSINESS.

i'm also a branding hound. thanks for your time and answers.

Selling The Hundreds Bridge Burners tee and Tolfer tee sz L. Get at me!

I just realized something....
Has there ever been TH mesh shorts??

Would have fit the theme of the hardcore shirts collabs.

They did sweatpants shorts before, but not the classic mesh ones.
would probably instantly pick those up.

It just happens, because that's what The Hundreds is about. I know some of our diehards want to keep The Hundreds for themselves, and others may see the brand as only for a specific group of people... (hipsters, hypebeasts, skaters, black kids, filipinos, white kids with bad hair, whatever).. but The Hundreds is about diversity. Look at us. Ben's background is Persian. I'm Korean. Scotty's half skunk. Right here outside my office I see a Guatemalan former DJ, a Black guy from the Bay, a Vietnamese Subie head, a Canadian lumberjack-type fellow, a Jewish rapper.

The Hundreds is about that, and embraces that. Our interests are all over the place, and so the brand is all over the place. There are pros and cons to that, but you definitely have a hard time pigeonholing us.

yeah, no disrespect, but the DMC collab was original and creative or whatever, but it doesn't look that great.

i like the old stuff with a bit more subdued colors and graphics... i still wear a bunch of shit from 2006-2007... "The $ of Music" and "Nevermind" flip are still my faves of all time... The shirts are getting faded due to being washed so much.

I've been down with TH since day one, and I've enjoyed watching the super sonic growth. I find it refreshing to see 2 guys make a living off their life's passion. Congrats!
As I get older I find my taste in fashion has toned itself down, simplicity is key. I find the new t's (the DeLorean collab) absolutely hideous! In my opinion, they look like the t-shirts you cop at one of the kiosk's in the middle of a mall where some dude airbrushes whatever design you ask for. They scream CHEESE! I know my 2 cents don't mean much in the grand scheme.

Never been a fan of The Hundreds. I don't need my clothes to tell a story, which incidentally is what The Hundreds blog does an excellent job on. Work really doesn't allow me to wear t-shirts, and when I do get a chance to wear tees I prefer free ones from the last software conference, or my old Supreme joints. But, this collaboration with DMC made me a fan of this brand.

Everyone has a dream, and to see it come to fruition is a rarity, but to involve it with a brand and lifestyle becomes amazing.

People can hate on this brand all they want. I know I have. But, at the end of the day they do what they want, and racking up sales. Perfect business model? Perhaps.

Bobby explains the DMC collabo:
"For this special collection of t-shirts and baseball caps from The Hundreds, we worked with Delorean Motor Company exclusively to pay homage to an iconic automobile. A car that represented a generation, a culture, and a certain nostalgia that only resonates stronger with time. Each t-shirt is a different take on a Delorean and DMC-12 from The Hundreds perspective, mirroring various Southern California car culture tees, while still maintaining an appealing design for our customer and DMC enthusiasts alike. The New Era baseball cap is also a salute to DMC's aesthetic. The 3 Adam Bomb emblems are indicative of the 3 letters on the car's grill, and the undervisor pattern is derived from the DMC-12's familiar back taillights. We hope that this special collection reminds the culture of an era that inspire The Hundreds and a car that symbolized an entire generation. On behalf of The Hundreds, Bobby Hundreds"
