Back in August of 2017, Patrick Matamoros sat down with HYPEBEAST Radio to talk about how he met Kanye West and the resurgence of old band merch. He also described what it was like collaborating with Jerry Lorenzo and Fear of God on a collection. Now, for our docu-series, the vintage T-shirt dealer takes us through one of his typical days.
When Matamoros first moved to New York City, he set up on the corner of Prince and Mercer streets, in the epicenter of Manhattan's SoHo district. He recalls nearly giving up after spending a whole day there not selling a single tee until a man purchased multiple pieces right as he began packing up. Fast forward and he's meeting with Chris Gibbs of Union and taking us on a house call with music producer Benny Blanco in Los Angeles. Take a look above at what it's like to be a full-time vintage tee dealer for the stars where "finding a shirt is like Fight Club" and stay tuned for our next installment soon. In case you missed it, our last video had Blondey McCoy talking about the pressures of being a pro skater, fashion icon and balancing his love for art and music.
i see tons of vintage tees i should cop em too. since this type of stuff is extremely unique, y'all dumb fuck hype reseller kids will NEVER EVER find it. lack of knowledge and experience. thats the beauty of this.
hundreds of bucks for kitchen clothes? No, thanks. But I respect the business he created. Understood the opportunity associated to a niche market, finds the product, works it out and finds the ducks...superb!
They are expensive since today's t-shirts are no longer produced in U.S.A. ... I live in Europe and sometimes i can find t-shirts made in E.U. and i end up buying them ...the quality is way better than asian stuff !!!
There are so many haters in here.. seriously why hate man? why not get inspired by him making money working his ass off. He is working his way up without hurting anybody so dont hate on him. Everyone get their on hustle you just gotta find to make your own money. Stop hating and make yourself better! one love!
Seeing him stretch out the collars even more by putting the hanger thru the top of the tshirts instead of the bottom makes me think know one knows anything but I guess he does.wheres the respect for the collars? Ahhhhh
To everyone wondering why people by expensive old shirts/clothes I'm going to do my best to explain it. People will spend a ridiculous amount of money on a old painting or old antiques. For people into the fashion world. It's like having a piece of vintage art. Its something that is limited and it's very unlikely that anyone else will have the same item. Also the history of the shirt. For example if it has your favorite artist from a kid or just an artist who you currently enjoy. Also vintage clothing tends to have a much higher quality than items produced nowadays. These t shirts are functional pieces of art and our culture.
To the east is the entrance area to the vault. In order to open it, you have to work out how to open all of the doors at once. One of the instructions will open a door without closing any. This must be the last key you press. Now, find a way to open a door that closes only the doors you will open later. And continue until all of the doors are open.
One solution is "NILBOG". (Many other solutions are possible; this one has the advantage of spelling something interesting when reversed.) Each key opens a door while not closing any of the doors you have already opened.
Pushing the Mainentance button (M), will teleport you to caves underneath the castle. When you leave this area, it will open up a new door to the east of the entrance room.
At the very first intersection, to the right is a room. A chest in that room contains the candelabrum needed to solve quest 3.
Continuing down the corridor into the caverns, you will come to a room containing a chest in the middle of the room and a Spark spell containstly bashing down onto it. You can empty the chest by timing you steps correctly. Be careful, as the Spark spell seems to be a master level spark.
The next room and then north leads to where Angela is trapped. She will join your party automatically and you can return her to town to solve quest 6.
Further west and then back east, and then to the end of the passage is a teleporter that returns you to the room south of where you found Angela.
If you instead go further west is the lair of some cobras. You can find several cobra eggs scattered around this room.
To the south is the lair of the Queen of the Spiders. Kill her and you will find her heart. This will satisfy quest 4. There is also a teleporter here that will return you to the starting room.
