Babe wanted a Hundreds Santa Monica exclusive snapback cap so i got it for a late birthday present. My standing on The Hundreds is still not a positive one, especially after opening up a Hundreds store in Santa Monica (seems like they are straying away from their roots and the reason why they opened their first store.) Gotta do what you gotta do to keep the babes happy!
The space is pretty dope though, its their biggest shop yet and the design is pretty much on point, especially their shoe room.
Last week’s shopping consisted of A.P.C. and SelfEdge. First went to A.P.C. so my friend Peter An could get a pair of jeans, and i wanted to check out the new Vans x A.P.C. collaboration. While Peter was trying on his jeans i couldn’t find the Vans so i just thought they didn’t get them which didn’t really make sense. Eventually i asked someone if they had them, and they had them in the back, so i got my size.
Really love them, the only thing that i’m disappointed with is the fact that the A.P.C. logo inside the shoe was glued instead of printed, so its already peeling off, after 2 wears. The minimal branding on the outside of the shoe is amazing, the Vans tag is blank. The Heel insole is leather which feels nice without socks especially since its a great spring shoe.
Next Went to SelfEdge to look at jeans, one of the guys eventually talked me into 3Sixteen ST-100x. I walked in with a mindset of not getting a pair of jeans..but i walked out with a pair. The dudes there were probably the nicest people i’ve met in a shop before. Totally cool and extremely knowledgeable and just really chill to talk denim with. Also was really impressed with the shops layout.
Nubuck upper, with an extra hook eyelet, whatttt? Back ankle has been shaved off, and comes in grey, sand, black, NAVY, and red. Supreme but honestly, what’s up with the 266 dollar price tag? Release in May.
Hahaha, why am I throwing myself into this situation again, why don’t I ever learn that I don’t need this in my life, I moved to LA, get with the program, start a new life for yourself, notes have been taken, learn from them
