THTC and the UK B-Boy Scene
I first met Gav when he asked me if we'd be interested in promoting his new Zulu Nation range. He wanted real faces of hip-hop culture not models who can't hit a beat. We said yes and I don't think I've seen my crewmate Hiroshi break without his Zulu Nation jacket since. We did London Fashion Week and the Big Issue's Catwalk Fundraiser, it was crazy. We made a lot of contacts and went on to work with a lot of great charities and artists.
When Gav asked me to write something about THTC's connection to the UK b-boy scene I jumped at the chance because they've been supporting events and giving opportunities to real b-boys & b-girls since day one. They've helped support and promote so many events on the scene like Battlejam, Evolution, B-Boy Unit, Urban Sinfonie and of course Throwdown.
When a lot of people hear about ethical organic clothing they think it won't be for them, but THTC shows everyone that fair and natural can look dope too... And from experience I can tell you they put up with a lot of wear and tear.
