I've never really been into clothing that much or care that much until recently. I used to rock cheap shit I could find at my mall like Old Navy or American Eagle. This summer I got sick of their shitty ass polos and thin shirts so I did some searching online. I came across MooseLimited and it was all history from there. Oh yeah, and one episode of The Wire, one of the characters was wearing a black Crooks shirt with the graphic all in shiny ass gold and it looked ill as fuck. Can't find it on eBay or anything though.

I got into streetwear cause of the Tiffany's and and Undefeated Dunk Highs. At the time, I had never seen sneakers that crazy. It was a wrap. Bought 2 of each.

I wondered about what kind of shoes that really caught my attention. Which were dunks and AF1.

From there I encountered this brand called A Bathing Ape as I was lookin' through the web page (bapesta caught my attention first cuz i was searching for sneakers). the rest is history.

A lot of you guys go way back. I started when I saw my friend wearing one of the Hundreds x Disney shirts. I still cant get my hands on one to this day haha.

i think karmaloop got me into the whole streetwear scene in general. but then i saw a few friends rock mishka and such, and that's how it started.
