GOREHOUND

Bringing two longtime obsessions together, I wrote a brief cultural history of GORE-TEX for issue #8 of the Stüssy Biannual which is out right now. That membrane is something I’m insane about and I’ve been impressed by Stüssy’s output of late. Lots of other folks I know and respect contributed to this volume, and it seems to be doing a good job of adding some extra substance to the many strains of subculture that the brand is built on. The impending Stüssy Japan GORE-TEX pieces for this winter are some of the best yet too — a couple of logos I would have sold a lung for when I was growing up.
