Ruined Rep About Us Banner

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,

Drink, Smoke, Be Creative

I'm just going to put this out there now, I am on the liquor writing this blog post. So if I say anything that doesn't jive with you then I'm sorry Mom and Dad but I still love you. Growing up I was never really into drinking or smoking, but I would say that over the past 7yrs that has changed. I've always been a creative person making people laugh with my stupid jokes, but I needed something that would allow me to open up a can of whoop ass and express myself the way I needed to express myself! I was out on a run the other day and some guys dog took a shit on the sidewalk and didn't pick it up, I wanted to say something but it wasn't my sidewalk, so I just let it happen. So creativity is something that most people think they have, but for the most part don't! Which is where drinking and smoking comes into play.

Being on the booze can be dangerous for some people as I don't know how to hold my liquor all the time. That's why when I know that I'm going to have a really good party night loaded with all sorts of alcohol I sleep at home so that my mom can take care of me. Over the years she has mastered me not puking everywhere, but yet contained in a nice garbage bag placed next to my bed. I did however wait to watch other runners pass by until one guy stepped in the shit, classic! But I don't want to talk about those nights, the negatives, I want to fucus on the positives. How getting drunk can unlock a sense of creativity that allows you to make pins like the pins that Ruined Rep makes! So don't be afraid to come home from work and pour yourself a nice drink to take the edge off and allow for creativity. This could be creativity on a side project, creativity in the kitchen, even creativity in the bed! Just let it out!

When I reefer to smoking I don't mean cigarettes. I'm talking about the pots and the pans baby! For me personally the situation needs to be right for me to get creative on the pots, since I tend to fall asleep if we are just sitting around. Keep in mind I look cute as all fuck, but still. The guy only realized that he stepped in dog poop a block and a half later when he paused to stretch, but thankfully I followed behind to watch it all pan out. If you find yourself in a comfortable environment with good people, creativity on the pots can take an idea and turn it into a masterpiece! Trust me, look at Ruined Rep.

I'm not saying that being creative is impossible when sober, because I do a lot, if not most of my creative work sober, but being intoxicated can help you find ideas that just would have ended up going with you to the grave. Don't do drugs or drink if you're not of age! Also, don't do drugs or drink booze if you get addicted to things easily, you'll end up Ruined you life, and we're about Ruining our Rep.

Make sure to check out the entire collection of Ruined Rep Pins to see what kind of creativity can come out of a nice strong glass of vodka or a perfectly rolled joint prepared by my friend since I don't know how to roll!
