What's the good word people of the Internet? My name is Wolf, Kingpin over at Ruined Rep Streetwear Pins. I wanted to take a moment to tell you a little bit about the history of what makes Ruined Rep. Hop in my time machine as I take you back to December of 2014...
I'm on Christmas vacation like most other people during the holiday's and realized that my schedule was just not cutting it for me anymore. I would come home, eat dinner, watch TV, and go to sleep. I needed more! So I started brainstorming things that I can do that will allow me to learn business, but also create something that would allow me to be my own boss. During this brainstorming period I came up with the concept of doing really cool Streetwear Pins since I was passionate about collecting pins, I had a connection to someone that makes pins, and I saw that the trend was picking up again. I'm a believer in the saying "It's not what you know, it's who you know", but you better be able to perform!
But why Ruined Rep? Ever since I was a little kid I was constantly being told that I'm going to ruined my reputation. I was always pushing the limits of what I can get away with. Ruined Rep is my way of distinguishing the people that I want to surround myself with. It's about people getting to know you before judging you. It's about owning your reputation!
I guess what I'm trying to say is that Ruined Rep isn't just an awesome, cool, dope Streetwear Pins company, it's a lifestyle brand too. We've all Ruined our Rep somewhere down the line, but it's how you wear it that defines you. I'm not sure if I got carried away, but I think the message that I was trying to get across came together nicely.
Keep on keeping on,
Wolf | Ruined Rep
Today was a pretty productive day at Ruined Rep HQ A.K.A. my parents basement. I dusted off the old camera and lighting equipment so that, when our pins come in within the next couple of days, we don't hesitate to show you all of them. I took a couple of test shots and I have to say, these pins are gonna be some pimp shit.
I'm not gonna lie, I've got a bit of a sore throat, but that might have to do with the puking that occurred this past weekend. You see, when you mix Patron, Jameson, Kettle One, then go eat two shawarma creations from Boustan, it ends with you technically not eating Boustan. The best part; I woke up the next morning down a pound! #WINNING
You might be thinking; why is this asshole telling this story? The answer is branding. Ruined Rep is more than just a name, it's a way of life. Life isn't about Ruining your Rep, it's about owning it. It's about waking up the next day and living in the moment, and not thinking about the past. We take our fuck-ups, and try to do good on them in the future. If anyone tries to judge you, you simply tell them to KINDLY FUCK-OFF.
