On this week’s HYPEBEAST Radio, we revisit our in-depth conversation with Stadium Goods cofounder John McPheters and CMO Yu-Ming Wu. This conversation took place on the eve of the resale retailer’s 2-year anniversary, and the two had much to celebrate.

The duo and their team have since gone on to even bigger and better things: after a sizeable financial investment from LVMH, Stadium Goods has collaborated with mainstream retailers like Nordstroms and Farfetch.

When we spoke with them back in October, the entrepreneurs shared the humbling stories of their booming opening followed by a slumping second day of sales. McPheters and Wu also explain how the hustle of the reseller’s mentality has guided them as entrepreneurs and businessmen in the episode above.
