main (9) Supreme chinatown market kanye west

On this episode of The Dropcast, hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by Chinatown Market founder Mike Cherman and Adam Petrick, global director of brand marketing at Puma. They talk about the rise of Cherman’s brand, known for its bootleg aesthetic and cheeky approach to streetwear, before discussing some exciting new developments they have coming later this year.

Also a lot of knowledge bombs get dropped while we go through the week and news. For instance, y’all probably didn’t know Mike Cherman and KITH have a very special graphic design connection. Y’all also probably didn’t know about Puma’s rich history of fashion collaborations way before Raf Simons touched a Stan Smith or Riccardo Tisci even heard of an Air Force 1. Yeah—it goes that deep.

We also asked our Dropcast listeners to weigh in with their favorite Puma collaborations, and Cherman takes over “What’d You Cop” by turning the podcast into a gifting suite. Listen and find out what goodies he brought. And for a chance to end up in a future episode of The Dropcast, call The Dropcast Hotline at 833-HIGHSNOB (833-444-4766).
