The streetwear brand STUSSY is a TRUE classic which continues to set the bar for other so called ‘street wear” brands which nowadays do nothing more than “trendy” graphic tees.  Don’t get me wrong, there are a lot of great brands/designers out there BUT few will stand up to trends and time the way Stussy has pioneered this market BEFORE it was a market in the first place.  Having met Jules Gayton, who is one of the original members & founders  of the Stussy Crew 15 years ago it’s amazing how he and his friends had the foresight to create a brand which was purely for the love of fashion, music, and art into a global brand.  I recently caught up with Jules in Hawaii (Kicks Hawaii) at the launch of his new personal label.  Jules now lives in Hawaii (my 2nd home), and owns Leilow Hawaii and Stussy Hawaii in Honolulu.  To read more about Jules and his take on the industry read the full interview on

Speaking of GLOBAL…check out the new Stussy “Year of the Tiger” tees only available in it’s Japan retail stores.  I’m also a Leo so I’d like to get my little paws on these bad boys!  Hopefully our fellow NyceTwit, Asian Chris reads this post since he’s in Japan NOW!  So Chris…if you’re reading this pick me up all 4 shirts in a size medium…lol!
