A$AP Rocky speaks on his “Hood By Air” diss:

The people behind the brands didn’t acknowledge me as a pioneer because I didn’t sit down and create the name Hood by Air with Shayne [Oliver]. I’m taking full credit for that brand, for anyone knowing anything. Yes. I’m taking credit for that. I liked it when I was way younger. It had a little run here and there, but nobody ever really kicked it off. I knew Shayne on a personal note. I was like: “Yo, let’s bring this shit back.” It took me years. Shayne’s stubborn. He’d give me a sweater one year, a T-shirt one year. It was like that. I have a lot of shit from back in the day, and I’d say after “Peso”—because we have Hood by Air in the “Peso” video—by the time it hit 2012, 2013, he was ready. Because I was out there in the field. I just made that shit look jiggy.

Officially renamed and inspired by the original meaning of Ewing’s own middle name, we are proud to introduce the Packer Shoes x Fabolous x Teyana Taylor x Ewing Athletics “Aloysius” 33 High (Fame & War Project).

The black/”OG” edition of the “Aloysius” 33 High by Packer Shoes & Fabolous was designed to serve as a medal of honor for all of the bravery Patrick has displayed on the court and his formidable defense. Constructed using the highest quality luxurious full grain leather hides ever used by the factory, the main design cue comes in the form of custom “Ewing Defence Regiment” crest logo on the tongue which is a direct reference from the Jamaica Defence Force – the combined military force of Patrick’s native land. Staying true to it’s inspiration, the logo contains the original British variant spelling of “defense” with a “c” which correlates to Jamaica’s origins as a British colony.

The gold/black “Aloysius” 33 High by Packer Shoes & Teyana Taylor celebrates the “fame” of being an professional athlete and all the success attraction that came with being under the bright lights of the Empire State during the golden era of the 1990’s when the 33 High was reigned supreme on the streets and courts of NYC. Also constructed using the highest quality luxurious full grain leather hides ever used by the factory, the entire upper features a metallic gold treatment. The main design cue comes in the form of custom “Ewing Empire” logo on the tongue which signifies the iconic status held by Patrick in NYC.

The numerals on the dial of the Slim d’Hermès are a meeting of Art Deco or the Jazz Age and the digital age, devised for Hermès by the graphic designer Philippe Apeloig. And what distinguishes them is what is missing. Slim d’Hermès comes in several versions: time-only with a 39.5mm case and 7.64mm thick, in rose gold (£11,400/$18,500), and in stainless steel (£5,100/$8,500). The perpetual calendar version (9.04mm thick) is available only in rose gold (£24,200/$38,900).
