HAIGHT IT OR LOVE IT

Haight Street has been a popular location even long before any of the "street wear" shops opened up. OG shops like TRUE and FTC have been holding it down over the years while newer ones like Black Scale, Pink Dolphin, Shoe Biz, add to the already busy block. Today I decided to hit up Haight Street to check out the two new shops on the block. Our San Jose family, Cukui, made the trek up the 101 and opened up shop in the city this past Saturday while hometown Nicky Diamond opened up down the street. Both shop build outs came out clean but would you expect any less? These two shops will definitely add to the culture of Haight Street.  Congrats again to Jae, Orly and the rest of the Cukui family and to Spank, G and the rest of the Diamond SF crew.
(For anyone who is looking for our Summer D1 hats, Cukui SF, still has some in stock so hit them up!)

This past Saturday was Island Reggae Fest, thrown by Cukui, over at Great America in Santa Clara. CT and I drove down to support and spend the day with our Cukui family and this was my first time checking this event out. This is a crazy event! Hella people and families were out enjoying the day at the park, good island music, some (hella) people were putting it in the air, good vibes all around, it was dope, really felt like I was back in Honolulu, but with a certain "city" feel to it. It kind of felt like Birthday Bash over at the Waikiki Shell. Of course I was thinking how much FITTED product I would see and I definitely didn't expect this  but FITTED hats and shirts were EVERYWHERE, Island Camo, Wai'Ale'Ale prints, Aloha's, Kamehameha's, were all over the place. Definitely a good feeling seeing all the FITTED gear being rocked. Shout out to Cukui family, Jae, Orly, Justin, Danny, Hot Rain, Chris Reezy, Blaine, Boog, ThaKuya and most importantly, Happy Birthday, Nixon!

Posted by admin in Cukui, FITTED, Native Rights



Last Friday June 24, 2011 the Cukui and FITTED family held a collaborative event @ Manifest in Chinatown, entitled Native Rights. Along with this event we released a Native Rights t-shirt, which is still available. The evening conveyed a family-like atmosphere, with a mix of the familiar Chinatown cuddy feel. Musical ambiance was provided by DJ Cutso from the Bangerz. Special thanks to all who attended! and for those who missed out, you missed out! 
Special shout out to Manifest, Cukui Family, Danny (Dandiggity) Le , DJ Cutso (Buckles O'Leary) and to Mr. & Mrs. Jason and Genevieve Locquiao Congratulations!
