For Immediate Release In-Store and Online at We are Pleased to Present Our Latest Capsule with One of Our Favorite Visual Creators Give Up!


After everything that has happened, and after all we have been through, what can we say we have anymore? What physical, tangible item remains in a reality becoming more digital every day? We have ourselves and our experiences in real life. We can get on our skateboards and have times with friends as we always have, literally taking us back to square one. We hope you might consider that when riding these boards and enjoying this small capsule of clothing.

Give Up’s Body of Work Always is Much More Real

Give Up and his imagery have always seemed more real than most things we encounter. We hope this capsule with help you return to the center, living more in the now, with what you choose to put on your back and under your feet. When seeing his work in the streets it’s always been the most thought provacative as we pass by in a car, on a walk, or riding our skateboards.
