10 Deep @ Wood Since touching down @ Wood in late 2007, 10 Deep clothing quickly established itself as one of our favourite brands. So in tune with the Wood mindset, rarely a day will go by without a 10 Deep piece of clothing being rocked by one of us here at the store. From t-shirts laced with hidden socio-political statements, to the always inventive cut and sew pieces that Scott, Eric, Jay and co. slice up and serve us season after season, we are continually impressed with the 10 Deep philosophy, creativity and imagination like this we respect.
Established in 1995, the original goal of the 10 Deep brand was to reflect the ideas and ideals of youth street culture surrounding its founder, Scott Sasso, as an adolescent in New York City. Launched in his college dorm room, the name was ultimately chosen from a list of over 50 because of its bold sound. As a slang term, "10 deep" describes a group of ten people brought together in a show of force. As a brand, the name is a reference to a person's ten fingers and the power of a single strong individual to affect change. Strong senses of collective individuality and personal strength are what birthed hip-hop, skate, punk, graffiti, and every youth movement of the last 30 years. 10 Deep clothing continues to reflect those ideals of New York youth culture through gritty utilitarian fashion pieces and graphics that express contrary and critical ideas.
A Shop Called Wood are one of the first to bring 10 Deep clothing this side of the pond, we always make sure we carry an extensive range of 10 Deep clothes, jackets, shirts, hoodies, hats and much more.
