What do the Holidays mean to you? Perhaps you think of Yuletide carols and the joy of building a snowman. Maybe for some it brings to mind memories of ignoring your bizarre uncle while seated around a table full of slow cooked meats and hearty root vegetables. Statistically speaking, for many of you it unfortunately means moping around in your underwear and compulsively watching A Christmas Story alone. But for us, it means one thing: gifts!
So, as usual, like some fucked up skeletal Santa Claus we're almost ready to bequeath to you a bounty you will not soon forget. I am of course talking about our brand spankin' new Holiday 2011 Collection! In a tantalizing, advent calendar type maneuver, here's a little sneak peek to tide you over. But this isn't just some bullshit chalky piece of chocolate shaped like a reindeer. It's a stylish video featuring some of your favorite artists wearing our fresh wares shot by Nick Genova.
You may notice the video's beautiful locale. You know how people call Canada "America's Hat?" Well, as you probably know, we fucking love hats! So this year we trucked on up to say yo to our neighbors from the north and hang with some of Toronto's premier musicians. We've got longtime mopster Damian "Pink Eyes" Abraham from Fucked Up, House revivalists Azari & III, Witch Houser High Park, new Jokers of the Scene project Blank Capsule and dubstep dons Zed's Dead all rocking our figurative chain.
Lemme tell you, this collection is the freshest collection since our last fresh collection. Winter scarves, Death Adder beanies, varsity hoodies, a bevy of flannels, cardigans, toggle coats, and a fucking KRANG Bear Mop shirt. So peep the video, take note of your favorite pieces, and get ready to run over to 350 Broadway, Echo Park, or our Online Store in mid November to snatch them up so you can impress your family members, or freak them out depending on their age and comfortability with the underworld. Merry Festivus for all!
