Going local for your streetwear needs just makes total sense when the product is at par with the hyped stuff out there. You fulfill your aesthetic desires, you get that feel good vibe of limited edition-ness (a lot of these collections don’t hang around forever), and you don’t have to spend silly money going through resellers and shippers and all the hassle that comes with copping an item from overseas. When you support local that's fresh, it's always a win-win situation for you and the brand you'll have on your back.
The minds behind this brand have recently rebooted into a more timeless aesthetic—perfect if you're after everyday wearables with subtle branding.

If, like us, you remember the halcyon days of Cubao X, then you've probably lusted after some of this brand's threads. The strongest brands always represent their roots well, and THE has mastered that aspect.
