At its core, The Hundreds is a 2-part project that houses both a clothing line and online-magazine. Both ends of The Hundreds incorporate their trademark lifestyle, attitude, and personal perspective on street subculture. The Hundreds clothing is inspired by LOS ANGELES LIFESTYLE / CALIFORNIA CULTURE and Southern California's skateboarding, surf, punk, and hip-hop cultures. The design is also reminiscent of 1980s surf-culture t-shirts, independent skateboard company apparel of the 1990s, and the advent of "streetwear" at the end of the millennium. The line is sold in limited quantities in the world's most prestigious streetwear and skate boutiques and has been recognized by the industry's leading publications, such as Complex, Streetwear Today, Beinghunted, and Untitled. The Hundreds has also been featured as a cover story in such media as the New York Times Magazine, Giant Robot, KoreAm, MuchMusic Television, and T Magazine. Currently, The Hundreds is stocked in over 250 accounts in every major city of the world. The Hundreds is Huge.
