BRAND: Brian Wood
FOUNDED BY: Brian Wood
HOME BASE:New York City
WHY WE CO-SIGN: Brian Wood is no newcomer to the streetwear game. He's been making dope, albeit eccentric, clothing since his self-titled line jumped off in 2005. Now, we'll be the first to say it: everyone can't rock Brian Wood's wares. For one, his clothing is pretty pricey (button ups check in around $210+). But what you're paying for is an extreme attention to detail and a style, quite literally, unlike anything else on the market. Go through his past ingeniously themed collections and you'll notice that they consist of pieces that a lot of people couldn't rock on the regular (like the Night Stalkers collection that had button ups with blood splattered cuffs). But for those of you fearless fashion heads, Brian Wood is right up your alley. His naval/desert camo inspired spring/summer 2010 line, Our Ransom is Love, is not the craziest collection he's done, but it features enough unique and interesting cuts and new takes on classic pieces that it should satisfy all your attention grabbing needs. Warning, if your self conscious at all we suggest you just keep on walking, homie.
