Well....a month has passed and we're already in the second month of 2017. This post is definitely over due but oh well life happens.
2016 was the year Second 2 None LMTD. was focused on finding its true self and it's true identity. Not only finding the true S2N and it's look but also showcasing and expressing it. Hence the new logo.
All the new prices that have dropped were never supposed to happen...ever. Then one day the opportunity for a pop up came about and well...you need clothes for a shop. So in 3 months a warehouse garage was turned into a Pop up shop / Art gallery and 4 new pieces were designed and produced.
These pieces are meant to show that true S2N quality and identity. From embroidery to print each piece is made with precision. You have your more mature pieces such as the Gen. 2 hoodie and the Infinity Logo pocket tee (which is sample tee,but black) and then you have some of your playful pieces like the Money Hungry Tee. With the cherry on top being the monogram snapback.
With all that being said be sure to keep following S2N. Nothing can be promised but good clothes and good vibes. Also Look out for a few pieces for the warmer seasons ahead!
The homies from eTc Tacoma have a podcast titled "LikeItOrNot". Hosted by "That Guy" (If you know,you know) and Co-Hosted by one of the main S2N homies, A-Hyp. Looking to shed light on friends of Hyp's that are overlooked from art to music LikeItOrNot blends a little bit of everything into each episode including Tacoma's rich culture. It's very rare to find a place where people are doing what they love purely out of passion and not for the purpose for a quick buck, and Tacoma,WA is definitely one of those places. Follow eTc on Instagram,Twitter and soundcloud (@eTcTacoma) for a true organic taste of culture. Last but not least, listen to one of our favorite episodes featuring none other than our main man A-Hyp.
In between working on the Spring Summer '16 Collection and the Fall Winter '15 collection pretty much selling out, S2N has decided to drop something for the true followers of the brand. Something to hold you guys up until that Spring Summer drops. The Second 2 None LMTD. All-Star pack will drop February 2nd at 8 pm PST and will consist of a matching longlseeve and snapback.
All-Star Pack Drops 2/2/16
Whether it's a simple logo on your shirt or a bold graphic,chances are you are probably going to get asked "What does that stand for?" or "What is that supposed to mean?" Sometimes it's just a logo or design and sometimes there's a meaning behind it. (Serious or not)
When the Ferguson shooting happened news surrounding the incident was everywhere. Black lives matter became a movement and riots were happening basically every night. That is when I knew I wanted to make a shirt,a shirt that had a graphic with a message
At first the idea of making a shirt related to law enforcement was meant to have a serious message with a eye catching graphic. But to me that wasn't S2N. At the same time,I realized cops lives are now targeted because of everything going on.
Everyone knows the analogy of cops and pigs,so I ran with this idea. I was looking for inspiration and found this adult (YouTube it and you'll see what I mean by adult) movie "Fritz the Cat" it had these pigs as cops and I knew that was it. (Since I'm going to have to explain when you watch the clip; I just came across the movie by a simple pig cop search.)With cops literally having to watch their backs,that is why the donut is being thrown at a cop. (Could represent a bullet for all the ruthless homies out there) Thus the Pig Patrol graphic was born. In other words, a serious topic flipped to a fun graphic.
I'm proud to present Second 2 None LMTD.'s Fall/Winter 2015 Collection. Even though Second 2 None is only going on its second year of existence I feel like the brand has progressed and the Fall Winter 2015 Collection shows that.
I have also matured and grown as a person;the overall design and aesthetic of this collection reflects that. In other words I wanted it to have a mature look but still something you could chill in, and wear for any occasion. View the full collection here:
Well things have been pretty hectic from finishing up the Fall/Winter 2015 Collection to dropping new some visuals for the two exclusive tees only available to Tulare,CA residents. (Consider yourself lucky if you have the link to purchase online.) In the midst of all this, I decided I wanted to show and tell you guys about some brands that inspire myself and brands you're missing out on.
This weeks brand to look out for is,Above Average Los Angeles. Former Diamond Supply Co. Fairfax employee,Corey Populus started his brand,Above Average LA a little over three years ago. After "3 years of trial and error" Corey says he finally figured out the direction he wants to take the brand in. After the recent success of recent collections Above Average rapidly continues to get better and better. Expect to see at least one skateboard inspired piece in every collection. Every graphic/design is nice,clean and crisp, AA is growing to be a true authentic streetwear brand from Los Angeles.
Check out Above Average's summer 2015 collection here:

Recently I watched two Graffiti Documentaries, "Exit Through The Gift Shop" and a Banksy VS. Robbo graffiti war documentary. I got really interested and intrigued by this type of art. So I decided to ask an actual artist about his work. San Jose, California artist Allan Pilapil recently went all over Downtown San Jose and placed his pieces of work throughout the area. Originally wanting to keep his pieces of art, Pilapil says he randomly had this urge to place ALL of his art in Downtown SJ. Pilapil placed every piece of art he has created downtown and has not kept a single piece. The feeling of wanting to show off his work downtown may have been random, but the artworks are placed accordingly. Each paining has a meaning. For example he put this piece, "Money Talks" by a bank and busy street corner.
This isn't the first time Allan Pilapil displayed his art where he wasn't necessarily was supposed to. Pilapil often visits museums and galleries in San Jose and puts up his work for display without permission. The most recent one being at the DeYoung Museum. Allan says he usually puts his works on gallery floors hoping a gallery visitor may think it have fallen or think it is on the floor to give a message or tell a story. Lookout for Allan Pilapil's signature spray paint backgrounds and acrylic pieces on street corners, slipped over no parking signs, hanging on fences and galleries all over the San Jose area.
A lot of you guys may support S2N but may or may not know the story or meaning behind it all. I started this brand in January of 2014. I would always see new brands popping up left and right. This is the exact reason why I did NOT want to make a brand. I wanted to go in the marketing aspect of this industry. Since 2012 I've had ideas and concepts for garments and products. I got fed up with seeing (for a lack of better words) these wack brands trying to emerge and doing everything completely wrong. In my opinion these so called "brands" are going about everything wrong. I say this,but in all actuality there is know right or wrong way to start brand. There are no steps, no secret formula, nothing. I decided to stop being an on looker and do something about these "Streetwear" brands. No one even knows what the real meaning behind streetwear is anymore. My goal with Second 2 None LMTD. is to save "Streetwear" from these brands that need stop labeling themselves as a streetwear brand.
I design everything myself. Every concept and idea is thought of by me. With a little bit of help from my printers my ideas are brought to life. Each and every product that comes out of Second 2 None LMTD is made in limited quantities and will never be re-produced again. That is where the LMTD comes from. Second 2 None means second to no one, nothing. You are first .You are the best. If you're not the best you always want to be better,so you can be the best. Whatever it is YOU do in life you always want to BE BETTER and be the best. Second 2 None LMTD is the best and will only Be Better™ from here on out.
Only carry that top shelf
