Back in ‘98 a few Englishmen known as The London Police headed out to Amsterdam, the world of illicit drugs and red light districts to revamp the aesthetically boring drug capital of the world. The city soon became marked by characters known “LADS”. From 2002 onwards, The London Police would send out representatives to all corners of the globe to mark the streets with LADS.

For the second installment of the Acapulco Gold Holiday lineup, the New York label has gone with a flower motif. Made on heavyweight Canadian fleece, the Flower Zip Up Sweats use cut twill letters with contrast embroidered flowers. The New Era Flower Cap takes the Classic AG logo and gives it the same twist, with the flowers running around the front and back of the cap. For the first set of decks this holiday, Acapulco Gold looked to the “B.I.G.” Bear for inspiration and came up with a perfect combination. The decks come in 7.75” and 8” and are made in the USA. Available now at Acapulco Gold retailers. Also be sure to visit the freshly updated acapulcogoldny.com for an exclusive download of DJ Love on The Run’s Mix CD.
