I know we’re a little late on this contest but anyhow: With all of the creative fans that we have out there, I want to see who can carve the best Still Proud inspired pumpkin. All you have to do is send in your pic to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll have the chance to be 1 of 2 winners selected by our supporters. As far as what to carve, just let your creativity flow and as long as it’s Still Pride inspired (quote, design etc), that’s the only requirement. You can also peep these previous submissions for some ideas. The contest ends Wednesday, October 29th at midnight and the winners will be chosen the next day and announced on Halloween!
1′st place: 3 T’s of your choice
2nd place: 2 T’s of your choice
Now show me what you got!!
Known as the “Friendly Isle,” Molokai’s a quaint, tight knit community of Hawaiian’s just shy of 7,000. What it may lack in numbers, Molokai more than makes up for it with its warm atmosphere & endless shakkas. I’ve been back & fourth over the years (as my dad was born & raised) but at the thought of meeting new family & showing my lady a more authentic HI experience, I couldn’t pass up my dads offer. So for the weekend, we set off for some family time, exploration, & of course ONO (delicious) island soul food. Molokai at a glance:
Poi, which is made from Taro, is one of those Hawaiian staple foods that many outsiders don’t get due to its bland taste, but we don’t mind. If you’re in the islands, give it a try!If you’re going to eat meat, knowing where it comes from & how it was prepared is one of the most crucial aspects. Kalua pig is another Hawaiian staple where the pig is cooked in an “Imu” (underground oven) for at least a day. What results is one of the best damn things on the planet akin to cuban shredded pork for those of you wondering what it’s like. Another must try if you’re a fellow carnivore. This is the Lin-kee family which I’m related to via my dads maternal side. I had never met most of them up to this point & it was good times all around catching up over the weekend! Shouts to the cuzzos for that bomb Molokai homegrown :)In no particular order: poi, kalua pig, venison skewers, poke, lomi lomi salmon, crab, potato/mac salad & white rice, too many feels…Hawaiian style breakfast: pancakes, scrambled eggs, fried rice & portugese sausageThis is Halawa valley falls. A 40 minute hike through the jungle & a river or two to one of the greatest waterfalls I had ever seen. This one’s typically off the beaten path & is invite only as the falls border two families property’s.

If you would have told me 5 years ago that I’d still be here trekking along, I’d have a very puzzled look on my face. When I started this brand (back then, just a T-shirt company), I had no idea what this would turn into. No knowledge of running a business, how a design turned into a T-shirt or anything, I just had something to say & I want to thank all of YOU for keeping me going! I’ve been through more than you probably care to know these last 5 years and it means the world to have your support!
On that note, with this release I wanted to take it back to our roots. The drop’s comprised of 3 T’s (inc a reprint of our Defend Hip-Hop piece in a new colorway) along with our 2nd Basketball Jersey. Not many pieces were printed of each so DON’T SLEEP on what’s in the shop bc it probably won’t be up for long!
With the utmost love & respect,
Big ups to the homie J-57 for repping our Gadsden 4th tee in this banger!
As I’ve been hinting at here & there, we’ve been working hard as of late on a couple releases in between our main seasonal drops. Besides our first Hawaii capsule that dropped last week, we’ve had another one up our sleeve and that is the big 5 year drop! Throughout the past 5 years we’ve evolved a bit & with this one I made sure to bring it back to our roots. The release which is comprised of 3 new T’s & our 2nd Basketball Jersey will go live at 7 am (EST) on Monday (9/8/14). Enjoy the sneak-peeks & as always, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD:
When putting together a lookbook, I’m always aiming for a certain feeling or attitude to explain the release with the photos I use. From the location & ambiance to the look on the model, all of these characteristics come into play when we’re out there doing our thing. What this results in are hundreds of photos to sift through which ultimately get narrowed down to 8-15. With this post, I wanted to remove the veil & show you some of the other (unedited) flicks that are equally dope that unfortunately didn’t make the final cut. Enjoy:
I’m a bit late on this but here’s our (bi) monthly roundup of photos from y’all. Keep the #stillproudclothing tags coming:
