How are you!? Hopefully you are amazing. As for me, I never knew I could ever be busier than I typically am, but I’m always shocked with how much sh*t I can pack into 24-hours. All work, all play. Life is good.
If you peeped my Instagram (@REBEL8) last night you saw a photo of Giant and myself sitting bumper side on his U-Haul that just made the trip to LA from Frisco. I am STOKED to tell you that Giant has also made the trip to LA. For the first time in ever, he will be working in the REBEL8 offices. FYI, Mike typically would work out of his own personal studios scattered across the globe since 2003. I can’t wait to see this dude everyday!
Some of you do not understand why I decided to move REBEL8 to Los Angeles. I thought long and hard if I would explain my thought-process and ultimately my decision. But I decided to keep all that data locked in my mental. I am confident I made the right choice. And I know it is the right moves both figuratively and literally for REBEL8. It’s one thing to rep your city when you never leave. That’s kool, I did it all my life. But it’s also way too easy. It’s taking it to a whole ‘nother level when you put on for your city in someone else’s. Frisco represent until the day I die. Bay to LA, REBEL8 all damn day. California love.
Now, let me acknowledge some frustrations you have had regarding REBEL8.com that I am now going to fix. For the past couple of years you’ve tried ordering from our website during seasonal releases or special product drops and the site crashed. It bummed me out as much as it did you. And after this last Black Friday and offline Cyber Monday I got on the phone and made power moves. I am proud to announce that our new & improved website should launch June 1 with the release of our Summer 2013 collection. But feel free to cop the latest REBEL8 season on your iPhone! Because the official REBEL8 App drops June 1 as well!
So the new website has a new layout with new graphical needs specific to how we photo our products. With all these moves going forward, I do not want to take even a single step back to photo old sh*t. I rather slang it to you on the cheap. Right now at REBEL8.com, products are heavily discounted 30-80% OFF. Although we don’t need the warehouse room at all, as our new location is six-times the size, I need this inventory outta here. Damn. Up to 80% OFF!?! Don’t know if I am going to regret that decision tomorrow. F*ck it. If that is not enough of an incentive, remember, if you spend $100 you also get FREE* FedEx shipping (*USA only). I’ll also throw in a grip of FREE stickers with every order as well. BOOM!
And for nostalgia sake, this may be the last time you can crash our website.
So get to it. Spend it, spend it. Have fun!
Until next time,
Mike Giant’s U-Haul arrival to Los Angeles, CA. Giant & Joshy outside R8DTLA. April 26, 2013.
