ACROPOLIS FAMILY | EPICEpic
is the newest member of the worldwide Acropolis
family! Located in The Netherlands, Epic
carried a very selected array of streetwear and shoes brands. We caught up with the owner for a Q&A:
Please introduce yourself and tell us a little about Epic?
My name is Ted, 37 years old and the owner of Epic
, an independent sneaker and streetwear boutique in Breda, The Netherlands.
What is the biggest trend youâre feeling in streetwear currently?Pocket tees
!! Iâm a sucker for those!! The more crazy the print on the pocket the better!!
The best thing about The Netherlands is..?
The open minded culture. Always open to
trying new things, not only in life but in clothing and footwear as
well. I live in the south of The Netherlands and what I especially like
about this part of the country is the warm-hardheartedness of people.
What is it about Acropolis that you like?
I am really drawn to the clean designs
and the unique story behind the brand! I love the thought and meaning
incorporated into the design.
What is something that you would like to see make a return in streetwear?
I grew up in the 90's so I have fond
memories of wearing Starter gear from my favorite teams, and this style
is already makeing a comeback. Other than that, bring back the Polo
long-sleeves!! The Helly Hansen jackets, Natutica, Polo, etc!! That
preppy, sailing look, those were the days for me.
AF1's or Jordanâs?
I've been collecting Jordanâs for years
now, so thatâs an easy question for me. It all started for me when I
was around 16 years old and my Dad brought me a pair of Jordan VI
Infrareds back from a business trip to the USA. I've been hooked ever
What brands are you wearing at the moment?
As a store owner, I believe that you have
to stand behind the product you sell so I only wear the brands sold in
Epic!! This Spring it's been Staple, Acapulco Gold, The Quiet Life and
of course Acropolis
They all have very strong collections in my opinion. Besides those
brands, Iâm really into Japanese denim. A rolled up selvedge denim is a
killer look to go with your kicks.
Epic is located at:
