The 'Andy Steve'

Andy Stephenson of Florida wanted his name on his kicks for whats left of summer.
He asked for dark green laces but all I could find were some green ones similar to the green of the design which he said made them look like clown shoes. So he swapped them for black and, to be fair, they do look better.
(He also supplied the photos as I did take some to post but Ive stored them somewhere 'safe'. So safe I cant find them lol)
He was well pleased and so will you be if you order a pair of custom jobs from Cuban Petes.

'Hawaiian Sophie' Jacket

Another exclusive from Cuban Petes!

This is a one-off hand painted/drawn artwork on a lightweight mens jacket (from a well known high street store) - size Large.

The design covers most of the back and side and is based on an old school graffiti character created by Sphere and Sketch, which can be seen in the book Spraycan Art.

Her left arm comes round the side with her hand permanently in your pocket (make up your own jokes guys!)
There is "Cuban" detail on the right sleeve and left hand breast pocket.
This jacket is one for the old schoolers and retro fans alike and is sure to turn heads wherever you go.

This one went to the man Perfecta from Cuban Linx. The sites currently down but when it comes back up Ill add it to my blogroll on the right of the screen.
