brooklyndom68 Very interesting read in the NY Times that applies to all skate shops / streetwear shops and especially sneaker shops. Back when social media was "new" it was very common to post sneak peaks of the newest sneakers coming out or collab collections .. It built up hype .. And made the consumer want the product and look forward to it .. But as the article says .. It's all about the newest product being shown today and available tomorrow .. But it also points out that social media is a great way to judge if a product is going to sell or not by how many likes / retweets or comments. You can gauge what the consumer is thinking. In the last few years .. Sneaker companies absolutely forbid you to post pics prior to release dates .. If you do you're in a violation of its policies ..there's loopholes around that BTW .. But back to the point .. Because they want to control the brand image.. It has been hurting sales drastically .. Leaving the companies to scramble and try and fix a problem that's so simple yet they refuse to see it. Adidas for one .. Being the "it" brand right now .. Likes it when sneak peaks of their shoes come out .. It builds hype and they can see what the "consumer " wants .. Not the buyers of big box. So.. With that ... Please read the article. Real good and hopefully the shot callers at the brands get it. Times are changing. Change with them or lose your market real estate. #igsneakercommunity #sneakers #sneakerhead 9h

brooklyndom68 I am fucking heartbroken and speechless ... I don't want to believe this is true but it is. My friend .. Someone who I've known since he was a 15 year old ripper on the ramp .. To becoming the most decorated athlete in the X Games and the biggest freestyle BMXers of all time Dave Mirra .. Has died. My head can't grasp it .. Even more fucked up is that just last night me and @nigelsylvester were just talking about you .. How dope you were on and especially off the bike. You pushed the envelope in BMX .. You're were an enigma an icon .. Im devastated . Ride In Power Dave. You'll always be in my heart. #rip #davemirra #bmx 1w

brooklyndom68 #tbt : before Supreme and later on Obey and Vans .. Way before most of my followers were even born .. I did my first collab .. With Anthrax and Public Enemy and Stussy. Probably the first collab ever for a streetwear brand actually ... This would lead me down the path to opening Brooklyn House which later morphed into @brooklynprojectsla ..having had part in putting together Anthrax and Public Enemy ( another first ) we were all fans and supporters of upstart streetwear brand @stussy ... So we made a small run of 100 jackets for our tour with my artwork .. I was more hyped on having created the artwork than the jacket ... So glad I still have this and it still fits .. Once again .. True to it / not new to it. So this year .. I'm working on something special for the 30th anniversary of this tour .. And the 25th anniversary of @brooklynprojectsla ... Can't wait to show everyone. #brooklynprojects #streetwear #publicenemy #anthrax #supreme #obey #stussy #og #skateboarding #fashion #music #rap #metal #blessed #hypebeast #highsnobiety 2w

brooklyndom68 #tbt : some of my first tours I worked .. 17 yr old punk high school drop out .. But what I learned and experienced you couldn't learn in any school from any teacher. I traveled the world and experienced different cultures .. Wouldn't have traded it for nothing. I was very blessed. #beastieboys #slayer #tourlife #blessed #hiphop #metal #preBrooklynProjects 2w

brooklyndom68 This is a milestone in my life : having been a fan of @calvinklein underwear in the early 90's .. Until now. And having seen the ad campaigns with Mark Wahlberg to Kate Moss .. Now they've come full circle with their ads. Using today's hottest young celebs and artists .. Like my friend right here : @justinbieber .. Thank you bro for all you've done for me and @brooklynprojectsla and @brooklynprojects89 .. Never asked you .. You just did it because you liked the brand and my shop but more importantly .. Because we are friends. This is definitely an ultimate high for me .. And my brand .. To be featured in the new @calvinklein spring 16 ad campaign .. Im beyond words .. And I also need to thank everyone at @calvinklein for the opportunity .. This is huge and can't wait to do more .. #blessed #calvinklein #fashion #bieber #skateboarding #brooklynprojects #happyasfuck #bigthingscoming 2w

brooklyndom68 This goes out to my friend @bobbyhundreds and his article in @hypebeast about how streetwear is dead ... This is one of the main reasons. Back in the early 90's .. Right after streetwears inception .. You had to go out and find brands like X Large / FUCT / Stussy / Pervert / subware and so on .. Or get introduced to them by like minded friends .. There were no blogs to let kids know about this trend. If you knew.. You knew. IMO blogs have had a huge impact in blowing up streetwear.. From the early days of the @thehundreds blog to @hypebeast and SlamxHype and @highsnobiety .. The latter even gave tastemakers like myself blogs within their blog to help with content and uniqueness. ... Overtime .. There were waves of streetwear to fill in voids left when the leading brands started going mainstream .. That's what kept the scene going .. But in time .. Less and less originality started and brands became over exposed .. And the bubble burst. But a big part of that is the aforementioned blogs stopped focusing on streetwear brands and started focusing on lazy wannabe fashion brands who design oversized sweatshirts that make you look like you're wearing something 30 times too big .. And these blogs that gained popularity and more importantly to them : INCOME .. Now started to call brands like the ones below streetwear ??!! Really ???!!! This is streetwear ???!!!??? This is ready to wear runway shit .. I mean the first pic : writing hails atan ( so clever ) in a sharpie on a white tee.. Is that streetwear ??!!!?? I think the one of the ways brands like @thehundreds and so on .. Is to take back social media from the people they helped build and start a joint blog where everything street is shown .. I mean there's 6 or 7 sneaker blogs but not one STREETWEAR blog .. To let kids know what's really good and what the is. Again .. Just my opinion from someone who has seen streetwear come and go and come and go again.. But now .. Don't think it will come back unless something changes. And if you think I'm hating ..you're seriously an idiot. #streetwear #Hypebeast #Highsnobiety #blogs 3w
  •   bobbyhundreds @5amtv Not mad. 3w
  •   bobbyhundreds Great points, Dom!!! I think we do that with our website. It's a response to Hypebeast and HS - I never talk about runway fashion, because it doesn't appeal to me. But, kids today admire Kanye and his protégés and those guys wear Fashion. Virgil has remarked in GQ that Streetwear didn't age well. I disagree. Streetwear can't die, it multiplies. 3w
  •   censoredmunky88 @brooklyndom68 yes indeedy. Good post. To me, it's similar to rocking underground band tees. Letting those that know know haha & those that don't a heads up...same thing I dig about "streetwear" brands. For me, it seems to still be alive & fairly well. A spot to get a heads up on product or share interests is always appreciated. I think that what distinguishes sw brands currently is the artist or artists or collabs they have working with/for them and the creative force vision behind the brand. I find myself searching out artists sometimes over brand. However, some brands are a sure shot where those artists are working or the product is steadily dope. Similar to music & labels for me. All about supporting artists & brands u dig that u feel support what ur into. I'm done. 3w

brooklyndom68 Seriously had the best time today reliving the past and planning some future shit with my boy @robbflynn from Machine Head .. Been friends since the Vio Lence days back in 1988 ...Forgot that he was coming to see me today and I wore a Vio-Lence tee .. We both cracked up. Happy to have him as a friend all these years.. Working on some cool shit together. #machinehead #thrashmetal #vio-Lence #bayarea #killersandkings 3w

  •   suprvln I got so much more respect for Robb. What he said in that video regarding Anselmo needed to be said. I'm glad he stood up and called out Anselmo. As far as I'm concerned Anselmo can go away and never see the light of day. So disappointed. 2w

@BrooklynProjectsLA is probably the only skateshop you’ve got an equal chance of running into Johnny Depp/Justin Bieber/Chris Brown and @neenowilliams/ @themuska/ @coookie_doe. Right off Melrose, Brooklyn Projects has the best mini ramp in LA, hands down. @MountainDew #LAPins
