did u run into any limitations with the deloran colab?
will there ever be a hundreds X black scale collabo, i saw in one of those old pictures you posted was mega, triumvir would be cool also.
and ive also wondered, where do you see the hundreds being at in say, 5 years from now? i know you guys have a good diy ethic and dont really have as many retail accounts as you could, but as the company grows it seems like ecko/lrg fame is almost inevitable.
They are hundreds of streetwear brands but you guys seem to have more success than others. What are they doing wrong?
I've heard you mention your ambition to do some sort of furniture design, have you made any steps toward doing that in the future? if so, would it be under The Hundreds brand name?
tie in question: do you ever have problems with projects or ideas you might want to do but are not consistent with the hundreds brand?

and since you mentioned outliers, what other business type books can you recommend? i read outliers and buying in by your request and they were both great.
It just happens, because that's what The Hundreds is about. I know some of our diehards want to keep The Hundreds for themselves, and others may see the brand as only for a specific group of people... (hipsters, hypebeasts, skaters, black kids, filipinos, white kids with bad hair, whatever).. but The Hundreds is about diversity. Look at us. Ben's background is Persian. I'm Korean. Scotty's half skunk. Right here outside my office I see a Guatemalan former DJ, a Black guy from the Bay, a Vietnamese Subie head, a Canadian lumberjack-type fellow, a Jewish rapper.
The Hundreds is about that, and embraces that. Our interests are all over the place, and so the brand is all over the place. There are pros and cons to that, but you definitely have a hard time pigeonholing us.
Felt like the tees could have been executed better, wayyy better
I find the new t's (the DeLorean collab) absolutely hideous! In my opinion, they look like the t-shirts you cop at one of the kiosk's in the middle of a mall where some dude airbrushes whatever design you ask for. They scream CHEESE! I know my 2 cents don't mean much in the grand scheme.
Never been a fan of The Hundreds. I don't need my clothes to tell a story, which incidentally is what The Hundreds blog does an excellent job on. Work really doesn't allow me to wear t-shirts, and when I do get a chance to wear tees I prefer free ones from the last software conference, or my old Supreme joints. But, this collaboration with DMC made me a fan of this brand.
Everyone has a dream, and to see it come to fruition is a rarity, but to involve it with a brand and lifestyle becomes amazing.
People can hate on this brand all they want. I know I have. But, at the end of the day they do what they want, and racking up sales. Perfect business model? Perhaps.
