WHY WE CO-SIGN: If you're out on a road trip to the Midwest, be sure to make a pit stop at Flow Clothing, an interesting storefront that brings streetwear to the Milwaukee metro area. Struck with inspiration in the summer of 2005, from a Magic convention in Las Vegas, owner Patrick Jones felt the void in men's fashion back home and thusly Flow Clothing was born. Pioneers for releasing 10.DEEP and BBC in their local scene and situated above the club, Apartment 720, Flow is also hoping to host events to give back to the community and their customers. Propers where they're due.
