XLarge has gotten together with one of Cali’s premier fixed gear crew, the Wolfpack Hustle to create a special collaborative t-shirt. 40 mile rides in the LA area and underground drag races are Wolfpack Hustle’s claim to fame. The crew meets up every Monday at 10:00 pm at Tang’s Donut on Sunset and Fountain in Silverlake, CA. If you’re looking to grab a tee, XLarge LA is the only place where these will be available.
In a true story of coincidence, Michael Davis of mid 1960’s Detroit’s rock band MC5 stumbled upon their reinterpreted White Panther logo on a pair of Obey jeans his son had just purchased. MC5, perhaps best known for paving the way for punk later had Michael Davis contact Obey to create a legitimate partnership and create this latest collection. No hard feelings though as both parties shared a mutual respect for one another. The collection features an M-65 jacket, a t-shirt and a cap. No word yet on a release date.

Get prepared, because KICKS/HI will be releasing this awesome cap at their Makaloa location promptly at 11:00 am this Saturday, July 28, 2007.
