Metropolitan, the brand headed by HUF founder Keith Hufnagel, has dropped its second delivery of Spring/Summer 2019. Extending its range of cut and sew apparel and colorful headwear, the ’90s skate brand offers a host of new silhouettes, styles and washes throughout its well-referenced collection.

Standout pieces from the collection include the all-new denim trucker jacket, which sees a vintage-inspired cloud crystal wash produced by a hand-dying process. Featuring embroidered calligraphic logos on the front and back, the jacket is complemented by a logo hoodie receiving the same unique dying process — meaning each piece produced will have a slightly different design.

Elsewhere, Metropolitan delivers a graphic T-shirt featuring a bubble-graffiti logo designed by Keo of the X-MEN crew, and a selection of colorful long-sleeve T-shirts. The long-sleeves are adorned with a tribute graphic nodding to the classic reggae song “Uptown Top Ranking” by Althea and Donna, a track often associated with skate videos.

Priced between $20 USD for logo beanies and $248 USD for the aforementioned cloud crystal trucker jacket, head to metropolitanusa.com to cop your favorite pieces from the collection.

In other news, Palace Skateboard has officially announced the opening of its LA store.
