Last weekend The Blot was able to attend one of my favorite local events, the bi-annual H-Town Sneaker Summit where sneaker enthusiasts and indie clothing brands from around the country come together to celebrate the scene. While I’m not that much of a sneakerhead, I love going to meet up and coming brands (many of which have been featured here on The Blot Says...). For the past few years legendary streetwear brand Crooks & Castles have been in attendance, and this year they brought with them two epic exclusive Texas themed t-shirts and tank tops.
First up is the “Trill in Paradise” t-shirt, which features the classic Texas Rangers logo and font. On its back is a tribute to Chris “Lewds” Natalio, a member of the Crooks & Castles family who tragically passed away earlier this year. The second shirt, and my personal favorite, is the Crooks & Castles x H-Town Sneaker Summit 2012 t-shirt which combines the Crooks & Castles logo with the Houston Astros’ old school logo.
Both shirts were sold in honor of Lewds, with all proceeds going to his family. I, of course, couldn’t pass up an opportunity to support such a worthwhile cause and score such a killer t-shirt in the process. I haven’t heard if either of these sold out or will be showing up on the Crooks & Castles online store, but if they do I highly recommend picking one or both of them up!
