RSVP Gallery preview: RSVP Gallery x JUST DON x Mitchell and Ness – “The Official Snakeskin Snapbacks” (Various teams and colorways; Monday, August 8th drop)

JUST?DONĀ® for RSVP Gallery from RSVP Gallery on Vimeo.

Involvement: RSVP Gallery x JUST DON x Mitchell and Ness
Type of caps: Snapbacks
Colorways: Various teams and colorways
Drops: August 8th, 2011
Overview:


A few days ago, I was wandering through my Twitter feed when I stumbled across CtotheJL’s tweet. When I clicked on the link I was amazed at what I saw. Snapbacks with genuine snakeskin bills. I was also amazed at the price tag. $400??? I don’t know if I’d pay that much to rep the my city, but if I ever did, I’d be #swag to the max. According to CtotheJL’s twitter feed, there was a prerelease of these caps, but they sold out QUICK. There is an official drop date, (Monday, August 8th) but who knows how long they’ll last when they become available. If you got an extra $400 and your team is part of the lineup, my best suggestion to you would be to keep a very close eye out come August 8th at RSVP Gallery in Chicago. These are RSVP EXCLUSIVES so you can’t find these anywhere else. Don’t sleep…

CapTracker TV: 5 & A Dime

During my Cali excursion, I also made a trip down to SoCal’s very own San Diego. While I was there, I made sure to visit one of the most unique shops I’ve ever seen. Very few shops look like 5 & A Dime. Fewer shops offer what they have to offer too. From the classic interior, to the brands, to the customer service, 5 & A Dime in San Diego, CA is a boutique that’s as original as it gets. To learn more about 5 & A Dime, check out the video above.

CapTracker TV: Fatlace

As always, my recent trip to San Francisco was friggin’ awesome! While I was there, I dropped by Fatlace to make another episode of CapTracker TV. Located in beautiful Japantown, San Fran, this small boutique has worlds to offer. Fatlace has grown from the single shop in San Fran to a family of three shops across Cali.
