Crooks & Castles - meh, no longer?
Crooks & Castles is pretty much straight up thug. Like way too thug even for me. If you watched the current season of the Wire you'll see plenty of young hoppers and bangers sporting this gear. Essentially not for me. I can't roll like that. Well, that's what I thought anyways. A few of their new prints caught my eye at Karma Loop. The Stand Off, as it'a called, remind me of some Freshjive gear from early 2007, but still slick in my minds eye. There's another called the New Bandito that's kinda cool as well, but a little too affiliated for my tastes. Anyways glad to see they are moving beyond crowns, dollar signs and handgrenades.
