Supreme x Cost

Legendary NYC vandal "Cost" has collaborated with Supreme to bring forth a series of tee's for their latest drop. Cost, along with his partner "Revs", started a guerilla-style bombing campaign that lasted over 7 years with the intention to "tear the city to pieces and rebuild it". They wheat pasted huge signs like 'Cost Fucked Madonna' and 'Who Killed Revs?' in all the five boroughs, nothing was safe. When asked by a NY Times reporter what it all meant, Cost said "If you could give us the meaning of life, I’d give you the meaning of us."

Being that Supreme is all things NY, it was only a matter of time that they started collaborating with the movers and shakers of NY's graff world, like their last graff project with "JA". The tee's are real nice, I prefer the first one with the handstyles but what about the 212-760-4740 tee on the very bottom, which was a huge campaign Cost did. He wheat pasted that phone number all across Manhattan and actually set up a hotline with an answering machine and claimed to get over 80 calls per day! When people would call, the recorded voice of a woman would come out and say: "My intuition tells me that you're asking yourselves who are Revs and Cost and what are they doing? What is it? What does it mean? What does it mean? What does it mean?"

Grab your tee's here before they're gone.
