I love the rain. I think most people say that the rain brings them down, but it doesn’t have that effect on me. Even when it rains endlessly for days at a time. It helps drown out the background noise and all of the business in my head. Not much is better than putting This Will Destroy You – Young Mountain on the record player and staring mindlessly out my window. It puts me in a unique state of mind, a good place to think. And speaking of thinking, it made me realize that I want to try and take Simple Threads and make it something bigger than it is now, without compromising on my ethics. I want to show you guys the brands I find from not only the US and Japan, but from all over the world. I think the ethos of Simple Threads lines up with a lot of rad designers that I not only want to wear, but also want to share with the niche crowd that reads this blog. So, be patient with me because I’m reaching out and trying to make shit happen. Thanks for reading.
