Focus X Carhartt X Surface Pressure Launch Party.....



This year Focus made it to it's tenth year in existence and to celebrate this milestone we hooked up with two of the store's friends and collaborators, Carhartt and Surface Pressure. The remit was to create a print featuring a spot or place in Edinburgh that would reflect the city where it all began back in 2001. So where better than Calton Hill, the view from the doorstep of our Royal Mile store in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town.

The tees are limited to 50 pieces and the first 20 people to purchase will also receive an A3 screenprint of the artwork.

So as is as traditional in Scotland we're going to throw a little party to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and the launch of the tees. Thursday 21st July is the date, 7.30pm is the time and 270 Canongate is the location. If you fancy joining us for a night of booze, music and merriment please RSVP to office@focuspocus.co.uk by the 20th July as spaces are very limited.

Stay tuned for some images of the tees and prints in the next few days.

Supra European Tour - Edinburgh





















Despite the weather's best efforts to ruin the Supra visit to Saughton skatepark, after a few beers in one of Gorgie's finest drinking holes, the park dried up, the sun came out and hammers were thrown down.

The pictures speak for themselves, but thanks to all the Supra team, in particular the one man hype machine and top geezer Chad Muska. All thanks to Manu and Ben at Supra for hooking the tour up.
