BOX LOGO T-SHIRTS

Thanks to a “certain brand” simple box logos seem to be all the craze these days.

Available in Three lush colourways of Cobalt Blue, Military Green and Crisp White.

A contrast to the simple front graphic and an impressive feature on the Military Tee known as the “C-Town” is the puffed / raised printed art work on the back, boasting variations of the brands alternative  “C Chain” logo. Straight forward freshness!!!

SOUVENIR SNAP BACK CAP RED / NAVY

At a time in street fashion where the 5 panel cap and the “dad” hat seem to be at the forefront of the new wave in head wear, The “Souvenir” Snap back and respectively all 10 DEEP snap backs still fight for the cause of relevancy. Brilliantly executed graphic work is expected from the brand  but the “souvenir” boasts 3 embroidered individual logos at the centre and both side panels.

STRAIGHT RAZOR STRAP BACK PINK / BLACK 

The “Straight Razor” is a low profile unconstructed 6 panel. This shape is becoming ever more sought after and represents a much more casual and modest approach to head wear fashion. The silhouette is classic and some what nostalgic with no additional flexing on the graphic work, simply the iconic “X” logo embroidered at the front panels and a small branded woven label at the back. The cap completely transforms with two available contrasting colourways of Baby Pink and Solid Black.

NAMSAKNOI SNAP BACK CAP HALFTONE CAMO 
camohat_d4 camohat_d1 camohat_d5

Military styled caps are a  basic product for most brands, but its the design, quality and detail that  separate the rest from the best and the “Namsaknoi” definitely falls into the latter. Full body and bill custom halftone camo means this isnt just your generic camouflage pattern and combined with heavy embroidered  foreign text and flag graphics this is a pretty unique looking item.

The Hundreds Dad Hats @ The Alternative Store

The head wear accessory game has spun a full 360 and 2016 has seen the full reemergence of the “Dad” hat. Historically the “Dad” is the original baseball cap, created in 1860 and worn fashionably from around the middle of the last century. Finding its way from sports stadiums to the streets and adopted by fashion and youth culture this iconic silhouette tells us a lot about nostalgia in street wear.

The Hundreds are never ones to fall behind on whats hot, and recently deeming the style as “The crown of Normcore”  many fans looked to the brand in anticipation to see what the guys from LA could do with such a classic item. We jumped straight on them over here at the store of course, check them out below.

The Hundreds Solid Strapback Cap

An original low profile, curved peak, 6 panel structure with an embroidered “solid bomb” graphic at the front and  “The Hundreds” text embroidered at the back. Simplicity is what this style is all about and the popular logo works perfectly for this purpose. Available in Navy, Black, Maroon and Baby Pink the hardest decision about purchasing one these is just what colour way to get it in.

The Hundreds Rose Strapback Cap 

The second release of the Rose “Dad” hat sees a new washed cotton construction that gives the cap a slightly altered look and a more organic, softer feel compared to the first range. The super popular single Rose graphic is unchanged and applied to new seasonal colourways. Again not much to think about or scratch your head over with these bad boys, you will instantly be bang on trend as soon as you put it on.

THE HUNDREDS X SPRING 16

We have some brand new high spec clothing from LA based brand The Hundreds Spring 16 collection. Bang on trend and constructed using the latest materials and technology we chose the cream of the crop from the release to highlight just how next level these pieces are compared to the lack luster, regurgitated  high street garms on offer.

The Hundreds Dell Jacket

Your average high street breaker may be made from nylon, but probably not taslan nylon, an air textured fabric that holds the same qualities as cotton with the benefits of advanced fiber technology, reducing slack and bobbling giving an overall even and cleaner finish. Another impressive feature is the addition of the The Hundreds own water resistant coating, this apart from keeping you dry extends the life time of the garment and increases wear resistance. The Dell is also very visually pleasing, a particularly under branded item for The Hundreds and sporting only a simple text print at the sleeves, a contrasting electric Blue lower body and a center front flap pocket with a concealed Velcro closure. The Quality goes all the way down to the hardware, a tough YKK zipper and welt pockets are all details not to be over looked when it comes down to the subject of quality.

The Hundreds Livmore Pullover Hood 

A classic Black White and Red colour way and built from high quality 380gsm brushed back fleece. A contrasting piped nylon middle panel that boasts a direct “THE HUNDREDS” screen print at the front and back along with a contrasting Red nylon hood lining adds that little extra touch of class and detail to the product. This hooded sweatshirt has a super nice cut and shape only to be fully appreciated when worn. Additional features such as metal eyelet armpit vents, a trendy straight bottom hem with side slits and a Kangaroo pouch pocket are sure to satisfy all your hoody needs.

The Hundreds Culver T-Shirt Black 

Once again not just your regular Tee here. The Culver is a cut and sewn, panelled custom product with a Tri blend construction and a neck binding crewneck collar. Front and back sport yoke detail allows a stretching quality for extra comfort and easy fitting. The Hundreds “Tail Slant” Logo is applied using felt applique that gives this Tee an impressive textured finish  along with the brands sports woven label at the hip.
