A Bathing Ape "silent drop" #2: Full Camo reversible t-shirts



"Silent drops" are happening quite often now a days with A Bathing Ape, whether it be because staff is giving misleading information or someone is just neglecting to let the staff know in the first place. Anyways, today (March 31st, one day before the 13th year Anniversary of A Bathing Ape/Nowhere ltd.) dropped the infamous camo colors (Red, Green, Blue, Purple, Pink, and White) as a reversible tee. I managed to acquire a sold out Purple in size medium.

Reversible tees are definitely a product to invest in; not only is the material a tad thicker and more controllable than a standard t-shirt, but you get two designs for a slightly higher price of one. I rather like both designs (especially when a little purple camo sneaks into view from the bottom of the t-shirt) but I must say the stunning purple-camo color is here to stay.

Fapestas In Retails Stores..




When it comes to Fapestas in retail stores..You know Fape is saturating the market.."The House of Flava" in Mission Valley, San Diego carries Fape Shoes and Clothing for retail price!! So watch out the next time you think your buying a real Bape at "The House of Flava" its mostly likely going to fake..I mean just take a look at the pictures..Its self
explanatory..sheesh...Looks like this store name is going to be buried in the ground..

Topics..Discussions..

Well there was a lot of talk about what I wrote last night about the Culture..So much it made it to the Hypebeast Forums..Now to me..Its funny because people thought I directed it towards them..When in fact..It was just an open thought that has been on my mind..And peoples minds and it just had to be said..Feel me? Now..Whizz had mentioned we should expand it..I mean..I'm up for anything..This is just a blog..I can say whatever I want..So hit me up with some ideas..You can give your example..And ill give mine..Etc..It could turn into something good..You never know..Just drop a comment below..Or hit me up on AIM: C to the J L..

Laced Magazine..


Homies at Laced dropped their new Magazine..And let me tell you..Its something to read..Full description over at Hypebeast..My fingers are tired from typing..haha..Wonder why..

Where Has The Passion Gone?

People from the Hypebeast Forum..And friends I talk to online have inspired me to write about..Where has the culture gone..Everything I say is an opinion and..You can love it or hate it..Comments are DEFINITELY welcomed..Voice your opinion..This is a blog! haha

Where has the passion gone? People don't do things for culture, half the time they don't even have a good reason behind what they do..A good example is all these clothing line popping up here and there..And everything being a "secret" or.."Limited"..Or "collabs"..Give me a break..A good clothing company to look at is The Hundreds..Started up a few years ago..And look where they are at now..On the verge of being one of the hottest brand out to this date..They didn't start by making things limited..Or doing collabs..They did it for the sole passion of street culture and what they believed in..

Blood..Sweat and Tears is what makes it..Putting your 110% into it is what makes you who you are..People can have dreams...But it takes a determined person to pursue them..Sounds corny right? But its true..Look at my homie Quan Luv from ALIEN..He's tryin to make it in the hateful business and guess what..Its workin for him..shits sellin out the day it drops! Why? Because he got his head on straight..And he's determined to be something instead of some one hit wonder clothing brand..I've seen it all on the Hypebeast Forums..I've basically been with The Beast since day one..There had to be over 100's of new clothing lines that I NEVER heard from..It seems like..People just try to do things to be the next Nigo..And then once they realize its whatever's..They stop..

The funny thing is..Nigo didn't even want to be where he was today..I'm sure he dreamed about it..But I bet you it wasn't his plan..You say.." yeahhh suree".."What's this kid know" ..I know Nigo loved what he did..And that's why he is where he is today..And no..I'm not a "dickrider" since that's the cool term to use these days..Ha..

So what's your point Chris? My point is..People need to think..And they need to take the culture for what it is..Not what they try to make of it..People hate change..So when someone brings something new to the table..They automatically reject it because its new..And maybe "too hip" for them..So next time you think about starting Hot..Fresh and New..Take a step back..Think about what your doing..And if that's what you want to represent..Don't just throw it on forums and ask..IS THIS HOT? BRING THE HATE!..Shit like that..caz its just not needed..Think of it this way..If you wouldn't wear it..Why would anyone else? yada dig?

want to take this a step further ..Email me Chris@thegalaxyriders.com

Got into the city around 3PM. Went to eat at Acme..Then walked over the NORT..Keep in mind it was 3PM..And there was still a line outside the front..People are nuts..Although I got to see that MIKE hoodie up close..I wish it was a zip and not a pull over..But its still dope..

Then over to the Adicolor store..It was really dope..They had some sick shit in there..They had this all over Adicolor sweatshirt (300.00)...shits nuts..Really made me think about buying the whole kit..Dope garage door..I might add..


I kept seeing these Dipset x Supreme posters everywhere..So I decided to get as many pics as I can of these..I don't know why..Just seemed like a good idea at the time..Ha





And then what I left with..Supreme Dipset Shirt..Thanks to Junior..And when I got home I had a Birthday Present waiting for me..Thanks homie..I really appreciate it!
