In case you aren't familiar with the mythical ouroboros, the self-eating serpent is a symbol for unity or renewal—depending on what ancient culture you’re studying. The second collaboration between Us Versus Them and Black Scale uses the symbol as a central motif for the partnership that delves into the shadowy mysticism that's not unfamiliar to either brand.

Snapbacks, hoodies, and T-shirts make up most of the collection. But the two labels also created a ring fashioned in the form of the ouroboros, and now you have the background knowledge on the mythical beast to impress the cutest girl at the party. The collection releases Friday, October 4 at all Black Scale brick and mortar locations. Of course, if don’t like getting out of the house, you can always cop the items online.
