In this week’s episode of The Dropcast, hosts Jeff Carvalho, Noah Thomas, and Jian DeLeon are joined by Grailed brand director Lawrence Schlossman. He promotes Grailed’s Heatwave giveaway, which this week revolves around a bunch of BAPE-branded home goods. This week Grailed is also selling some sought-after BAPE collabs too. Listeners call in and talk about their favorite BAPE collabs of the past, some of which are very questionable.
Lawrence also weighs in on what Jordan Brand is getting wrong, and explains the story of “Jonah Hill Day,” an annual day party in Brooklyn that actually got the actor to stop by this year. Other drops discussed include Lanvin’s latest sneaker collection (spoiler alert: it gets roasted), the latest bootleg Supreme shop to open in China, and a very, very nerdy discussion about early-’90s anime culture and how it ties into Uniqlo’s final collaboration with manga publication Shonen Jump.
