Tonight’s midtown mission got cancelled due to 30 MPH winds, and this Knicks-Pistons game is dreadful (has there been a fun Knicks game this year yet?), so here is an uncharacteristic Tuesday night update.
The Wade Desarmo Dime remix is recommended based on:
1) Between the white Jordan 3s, an allegiance to the tall tee ten years past its expiration date, Jason Kidd jersey jeans, and the airbrushed Scarface shirt (above), Wade may be the leading post-nineties icon for Hip-Hop White Guy (HHWG) fashion.
3) A close friend of the website drunkenly met his wife on account of her wearing the iconic “Horty” Shorty’s sweatshirt. It was at the Jane on Halloween a few years ago.
Anyone with knowledge of that story has since been on the lookout for pretty girls in nineties skate apparel. (What an icebreaker!) So, this past spring, there was a pretty, mildly #ethnicallyambiguous girl on the Jane roof wearing a longsleeve with the Zero skull print from the Thrill Of It All era. In theory, the only thing that stood in the way of #truelove was a faded Zero shirt. Her story for how it fell into her hands was “I’m a model,” so #truelove immediately went out the window. She was perfect in a terrible way, but after about one minute of conversation she asks, “Do you know Wade?” “Wade? No.” “You know, Wade Desarmo.” A brief pause to take in the hilarity of a girl saying the words “Wade Desarmo” to you. “That’s who I lost my virginity to.”
Attaboy Wade. Great work from the Dime crew as well.
P.S. There’s a good chance some of the new QS gear will be available online tomorrow. Check back in about twelve hours.
