Q: What is a clothing piece that got you into collecting and being after rare items?
A: I’d say my pursuit of highly coveted pieces dates back to like 2006, in middle school when I was thrifting BAPE and BBC/Ice Cream tees at Plato’s Closet. The release of the “Blink” Air Yeezy 1 was probably the cop I was most proud of in my teens. I got them for retail in ‘09 and that was the first time I was able to own something super sought after, that I knew I could sell for way more than I paid even after I’d worn it a lot! That ignited something in me. It also showed me the value of what a very rare piece could do to elevate minimal fits on a daily basis.
