1688Lbs – Summer Looks

posted by Alex June 16, 2017

Get in tune with one of Chicago’s up and coming streetwear brands, 1688Lbs who just dropped their summer looks today! Peep game as they’ve been hard at work for the past couple of months with their guerrilla marketing, designs and exposure into the local scene. The homies at 1688Lbs have created a different taste in streetwear that’s been missing in the local scene recently. Their style is versatile as it caters to just about anyone from creatives, skateboarders, athletes, and really anyone who is looking for something different and fresh to rock. My picks for the drop are the 1688Lbs City Skulls tee as well as the Signature 1688Lbs Signature Tee. Check out the looks below and make sure to cop from 1688Lbs’s latest drop here!
