Went to website and it's looking different-only the few things in stock from all drops are available.

Very happy that y'all twisted my arm into getting those yellow cable cords in XL last week before they disappeared!

Also, some of you wanted that royal blue nylon shirt-there's L and XL available....GET IT!

Thank you for the heads up, I got the blue Fishing shirt finally after missing on it at the drop. Weird that I didn’t get a restock notification though...

It's a funny thing, I've easily spent thousands of dollars over the years on really nice, proper leather shoes over the years. Crockett and Jones, Vass, Carmina, etc. I've sold off a bunch, but still own a good number that I wear and cherish.

That said, hands down the most complimented shoe i wear these days is the Timbs three eyes I picked up maybe a year ago and wear with all my 18 East fits.
That's what I love about the brand, style forum ethos has been to save up money to buy something nice. You'll wear and enjoy it more and it'll be worth it. Don't buy a cheaper alternative, you'll regret it later.

I did that and ended up babying the shoes because they're 500 fucking dollars. That feeling you get when you scuff them. :(

Antonio changed my mind using affordable shoes (other than that. Nike crap) and making it look good. Birk bostons, timberland mocs, Reebok workouts, etc. It's nice to be able to go out (becomes rarer and rarer when you get older) and get drunk with friends and not give a fuck about anything.

Workouts to skate, bostons to take out the garbage and 3 eyes for everything else (throw in an ACG if you hike).

don't think I saw anyone mention in here, but Saeed posted on the All Cap Studio IG that they were going to run back some of the lumumba design in tees/hoodies/totes and new colors. would be great, love those tees and didn't get a chance to get one.

ya'll let me know how the cable cords shrink post wash because the hat is kinda perfect fit right now and i don't wanna shrink it too much!


also, any tips on washing nylon to get some discoloration out? i had on sunscreen and picardin bug lotion (obv no deet when wearing synthetics) when i wore my fishing shirt on a hike, and between that and sweat, there are some areas that are darker where it was on my arms / collar, post wash
not a big deal tbh, but if you have any tips on that.. i assume it's whatever oils in those things making it darker

How substantial is the hat? I ordered one, and was thinking it might work well for a winter hat in Canada, but $100 ($65+$35 shipping) is kinda steep, so I’m debating cancelling the order.

IMO the cord material doesn't shrink much. Washed the cords a couple times, didn't change much.

As for oils on nylon, I'll put baby powder on it for a day or two to lift the oils out. If I'm feeling frisky afterward, I might pretreat with whatever stain remover I have (oxyclean). Seemed to work pretty well for previous nylon washes...

Sweet, both these things are helpful. Good to know the cords don't shrink much and I'll give the baby powder a shot.

I mean, it's reasonably thick for a bucket, but I'm the type of person that wears a wool beanie basically anytime the temperature goes in the realm of freezing so...
I'd be happy with it for late fall and milder winter days though (in NYC)
