Eighteen Eighty goes behind the scenes with Jeff Staple and Staple Designs one of the people and brands that have inspired me since my first clothing line; 7 years ago. Jeff Staple is your favorite designers favorite designer. What he has accomplished is such an inspiration for anyone no matter what industry your are in. I have never met Jeff but watching him over the years has done alot for me. I remember being when I started out with my first little t-shirt line, my friends and I thought we were really doing it. Then I came across the story of the Pigeon dunks. I have never been a sneaker head but the chaos that went on at his story got me curious as to who he was and why people we trippin over these shoes. So after a few Google searches, I came across interview after interview and everything changed. I realized how I didn’t care for the product I was putting out, how much time and thought should be going into the stuff I was creating. At that time I was just doing it for the money. I vaguely remember one interview Jeff sad how he love what he did how it was him, it was his life. At that moment I knew I had to change. What I was creating wasn’t me, it wasn’t my life. I stepped away from the clothing line thing for years just to learn more about me and what I wanted to do and for that all I can say is thanks Jeff. Keep doing what you are doing because your an inspiration to many like your art teacher was to you.

I am feeling the movement that Eric and the shwood team are making over there in Oregon. Never could afford the huf hats and gear back in college, and by the time I could, I had moved on. I have always had the utmost respect for Keith and his team at Huf. They always made the right collabs for their brand. This goes together like peanut butter and jelly. Check out how Eric takes a broken skate board and turns it into the freshness below.
