Q. What brands are you wearing these days?
Los: In terms of Apparel i am wearing a lot of quality basics like Reigning Champ and Illustrated Example (both Made in Canada). Also i’m obsessed with Jackets so i recently picked up a dope 'Creep by Hiroshi Awai’ Tiger Army coat from Uncle Otis….can’t wait til the weather gets a bit colder to wear it. Footwear wise - I am a sucker for that adidas Boost Technology so you will see me sporting those a lot. Other notables on my current rotation would be the Jordan 1 Bred’s that just released and Atmos Air Max 1’s/90’s. When i need to dress it up a bit my go to are a pair of Clae Bradley’s.
