This song led to years of low self esteem and codependency for me. But I think it also contributed to a rash of teenage boys wearing tight black shirts and women’s jeans in north Jersey back in the early 2000’s. These same teenage boys then ended up moving to Brooklyn, riding fixies, and getting neck and hand tattoos. I wonder what is next, a movement back to shell-top Addidas, JNCO jeans, and wallet chains?
With the launch of the Liberty Street X Buhay Makulay scholarship shirt coming up this weekend, it just seems appropriate to tell you all a little bit more about the project. The collaboration actually started about three months ago when we were trying to decide what the theme of the scholarship shirt should be. At which point the phrase “Love Thy Neighbor” was put up for consideration. The entire idea behind the scholarship shirts was for us to be able to help the people around us that needed help and “Love Thy Neighbor” just seemed to capture everything we are trying to achieve.
The launch is also an opportunity for us to say thank you to the early adopters of Liberty Street Clothing Company. I am very much looking forward to the launch because it will be a chance for me to see some old friends and make some new friends, all of whom have decided to join us in our quest to make people’s lives better. There is nothing like an entire community coming together and striving toward the same goal. I am continually amazed at how willing people are to help out. Thanks guys! You all are a huge source of encouragement!
Was that title some obscure Transformers reference? Nope, just the name of the coffee shop where we recently had our latest team meeting. We discussed several things from upcoming expansions to the launch of our Liberty Street X Buhay Makulay scholarship shirt on Saturday. From the start, I liked their space travel themed shop as well as the chairs they hung up toward the front portion of their shop. It always seems to be nice and cozy in there and if you are ever up for a nice cup of coffee while a portrait of an astronaut looks over your shoulder dip into Subspace on Emerald Avenue in Ortigas.
