Apartment Store Favourites – Hanes Beefy Tee’s and the 1970 Chuck Taylor Hi

The original Hanes Beefy Tee. Around since 1975. The original cotton tee. Heavy weight american classic.


The new and improved 1970 Chuck Taylor. Most easily recognised by the much higher rubber foxing on the outer sole. This Chuck has significantly increased cushioning in the sole, and uses a super heavy grade cotton canvas for the upper. Add vintage stitching details and a vintage plate on the heel and you have the new, much smoother Chuck Taylor.


Oh and this ones colour is called “Crimson”. Seriously feeling the Crimson.
