Epic is the newest member of the worldwide Acropolis family!  Located in The Netherlands, Epic carried a very selected array of streetwear and shoes brands.  We caught up with the owner for a Q&A:

Please introduce yourself and tell us a little about Epic?

My name is Ted, 37 years old and the owner of Epic, an independent sneaker and streetwear boutique in Breda, The Netherlands.

What is the biggest trend you’re feeling in streetwear currently?

Pocket tees!!  I’m a sucker for those!!  The more crazy the print on the pocket the better!!

The best thing about The Netherlands is..?

The open minded culture.  Always open to
trying new things, not only in life but in clothing and footwear as
well.  I live in the south of The Netherlands and what I especially like
about this part of the country is the warm-hardheartedness of people.

What is it about Acropolis that you like?

I am really drawn to the clean designs
and the unique story behind the brand!  I love the thought and meaning
incorporated into the design.

What is something that you would like to see make a return in streetwear?

I grew up in the 90's so I have fond
memories of wearing Starter gear from my favorite teams, and this style
is already makeing a comeback.  Other than that, bring back the Polo
long-sleeves!!  The Helly Hansen jackets, Natutica, Polo, etc!!  That
preppy, sailing look, those were the days for me.

AF1's or Jordan’s?

I've been collecting Jordan’s for years
now, so that’s an easy question for me.  It all started for me when I
was around 16 years old and my Dad brought me a pair of Jordan VI
Infrareds back from a business trip to the USA.  I've been hooked ever

What brands are you wearing at the moment?

As a store owner, I believe that you have
to stand behind the product you sell so I only wear the brands sold in
Epic!!  This Spring it's been Staple, Acapulco Gold, The Quiet Life and
of course Acropolis
They all have very strong collections in my opinion.  Besides those
brands, I’m really into Japanese denim.  A rolled up selvedge denim is a
killer look to go with your kicks.

Epic is located at:
Tolbrugstraat 17

I recently shot a photo and video Summer '13 lookbook for Acropolis on location at a beautiful fort in Newport, Rhode Island!

"Knife & Death" is the
collection’s theme and as I edit the footage, everything goes together
so perfectly…the collection features a lot of unique, art-inspired
pockets t’s and tanks, classic tees, snapbacks and colorful v-necks,
ideal gear for the summer!

I am so in love with this brand that is why I am going to say what I'm about to say.

I've been supporting Acropolis for a little while now and own a few garments. Designs are flawless but the pieces are just not there anymore! Please make some garments other than just T's and fleece! Get some Cut N Sew out there, jackets, coaches, jerseys you name it. Please put more variety out there! I want to see this brand get creative in their garments
Thanks for the kind words and support.  We do produce cut and sew pocket pieces at the moment but are having a hard time keeping them in stock.  We also produce tanks, accessories, beanies, 5 panels, fitteds and snapbacks as well as custom, exclusive snap and strapbacks.  We are steadily growing and expanding our retail locations to accomidate our customer-base and have more projects in the works.  Thanks
