The Hundreds has built its reputation and its good relationship with its customers and some very clever branding and marketing, As well as some great feel good product that is especially relevant in the summer.
Bobby Hundreds comments saying that “Branding” is defined as the establishment of the personality that identifies a product. So it connotes an element of human relationship, connection, authenticity. From the start, The Hundreds was formulated as a personal brand, an authentic and intimate lifestyle project. Meaning that everything you see from us, whether here on the website or in our print magazine, the shoes on your feet or the wallet in your back pocket, has been infused with our own story. We do, and make, what comes logically from us and our backgrounds and interests, and that complements the sensibility of the brand. That was never intentional or strategic, as it was natural and organic. We’re obviously the best at being us, why try to be something we’re not?
This shows that they have at all times remained true to their beliefs, always doing what interests them, but things have changed recently and the face of streetwear is changing massively every year, maybe it has been a bit stagnant and needed a kick start, this year it has cleaned up its act and taken it back to basics, quite reminiscent of the early 80’s when people were not afraid to dress differently or flamboyantly, mixing styles, brands and era’s. This is what Booby Hundreds had to say about it “The past decade saw the rise and saturation of modern street culture, and as the next approaches, I’ve imagined a post-streetwear take on our classic apparel aesthetic. So what you will see over these next seasons, as far as our offerings go, is a certain modern familiarity with bold colours, smart graphics, traditional sportswear, and premium denim, but through a nostalgic lens. So what were once vivid hues have been toned down to classic shades, raw and crispy fleece may have a more comfortable hand-feel, and the washes follow suit. There is an obvious emphasis on worn-in sweatshirts and ready-to-wear jackets, while our trademark plaid flannels have taken a more subtle approach. The idea here is that these are your favourite The Hundreds clothes as you may find them to wear in years’ time. And we certainly hope that is the case.”
