I’m always electrified with excitement when we get to creatively share our perspective with the world as it is continually refreshing to immerse ourselves in different sides of the spectrum. Thanks to Rachel and the entire Nike Sportswear team, Val(uable) and I recently partook in a customized design session at The Montalban in Hollywood. An array of design options was available for our use from a pantone of colors for embroidery, chenille varsity letters, and of course the letterman jacket pins that I never fail to overindulge on! Look forward to the finished product soon!

If you haven’t seen it already, see below for the Nike Destroyer jacket that I designed at Bowery Stadium awhile back in NYC! This piece holds dear to my heart as it represents my first year in running and also what we’ve developed in my hometown city Las Vegas. Needless to say, I maximized on every design opportunity there was to offer for this jacket!
Right Arm: Embroidered patches of the cities I ran in 2010 – Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York & Las Vegas
Left Arm: Embroidered patches of the concept retail stores we developed in Las Vegas – FRUITION, Undefeated, Stussy, & Monogram inside The Cosmopolitan
Back Design: Tonal black enlarged NY patch with Mission I’mPOSSIBLE spelt out in gold letterman jacket pins.
Front Right Chest Design: My nickname with the Nike pinwheel “O” embroidered in every color of the rainbow
Bottom Front Pocket Design (not pictured): Tonal black embroidered quote “In God, nothing is impossible!”
Waist and Wrist Ribbing: A extreme overdose of gold letterman jacket pins!
