    APB x bland x Kenny Brimer support shirt 

    As many of you know, Kenny Brimer has been in the fight for his life as he’s been battling Leukemia.  There’s been a great outpouring of support from the local community to help Kenny win this fight, with art shows and events to raise money for the cause.

    A new piece of support now comes in the form of this shirt.

    This is a collabo piece from Bobby of bland and Chad from APB.  The design features a tattoo-inspired logo featuring the words “Skate for Life” and an illustration of Kenny’s forearm and signature sun tattoo.  Underneath the logo are the words “In Support for Kenny Brimer” and the sleeve features both the bland and APB logos.

    This shirt is available to purchase through PayPal on the bland site. It’s $24 + $3 shipping. Hawaii residents, you can scoop up a tee at APB on River St. to avoid shipping costs.

    All proceeds from the shirt go to benefit Kenny and his fight.  So, be a homie and help a homie.

    NEW! Fitted Hawaii “Slaps Wind” New Era and “Sky’s The Limit” shirt 

    It’s goes without saying that the Fitted Ohana go hard on their releases, but this Saturday’s release goes HARD.

    First up is the shirt. If you remember a few months back, the Fitted Ohana released a shirt called “Represent” featuring the lyrics to NaS’ classic “Represent” in the shape of an H. This time around, they done the same effect, but with Biggie’s classic “Sky’s The Limit.” Much like how the NaS shirt was all about representing Hawaii, the Biggie shirt is all about reaching for your dreams and being the person you were meant to be. Done up in white and blue on a red shirt, this is sure to inspired and amaze.

    Speaking of amaze, I don’t think there’s been a hat that has all the elements of dopeness like the “Slaps Wind” hat.  You can’t really go wrong with anything on this piece: majestic embroidered Hawaiian flag gracing the front of the piece, surrounded by digital camouflage and a red underbill.

    There is NOTHING that doesn’t go hard on this hat.

    Since this is only the third Saturday release of the new year, it’s hard to be calling out the year’s best, but this is definitely in the running, no doubt.

    Both these pieces will be available this Saturday at the Kona St. headquarters. Good luck to those trying to get it, as you might have to battle a sizable crowd for this one.
