Aloha family,

If you didn’t know by now this sunday is our official GRAND OPENING. Personally I am very excited and Im sure all the KNOW1 fam is stoked! We have a lot of dopeness in store for you all!

Releasing this Sunday is the EXCLUSIVE KNOW1 x DEFER x BIG SLEEPS x OG SLICK tee shirt.

This exclusive tee will be in limited quantities and be featured in both Black & White tees. The design was a collaborative effort by our good friend DEFER along side OG SLICK of DISSIZIT and BIG SLEEPS. The custom KNOW1 font in the middle surrounded by all new generation hand styles, this is definitely not the shirt to sleep on!

Some of you especially you hip-hop heads may be familiar with the saying “WORSE COMES TO WORST MY PEOPLES COME FIRST” the well known underground hip-hop group Dilated Peoples brought this saying to life with there HIT “WORSE COMES TO WORSE”

This brings us to our second exclusive drop this sunday, “WORSE COMES TO WORST OUR PEOPLES COME FIRST”. This shirt will be in limited quantity and only featured in a Black tee. This shirt showcases the famous quote on the front of the shirt ending with our KNOW1 logo on the bottom. Turn the shirt around and you will see most of the brands you will be able to find at the KNOW1 shop. This shirt represents locals supporting locals. Aint no better love then that!


We all hope to see you this sunday at our GRAND OPENING! Mahalo for coming by the blog and if dont know…. NOW YOU KNOW1!

Aloha Fam, we posted this video awhile ago but I decided to repost it for 2 reasons. 1st reason being how extremely dope this is. Be honest, you can’t deny the awesomeness in this video. 2nd reason, DEFER is making his return to Hawaii and is going to be in the shop for our GRAND OPENING.

Defer is a very humble yet extremely amazing from southern Los Angeles. You can check out some of his work here and also follow him on IG @defer_k2s
