Brooklyn We Go Hard: Paris vs. New York
When Humberto and the buyers came across David Obadia and Nelson Hassan's embroidered sweatshirts in Paris, they knew they needed to bring them back to New York. Stitched with the names of NYC boroughs, Brooklyn We Go Hard

In addition to picking up the main line, OC also teamed up with David and Nelson to produce our own BWGH for OC
exclusives! Check out the guys looking handsome in our "Opening Ceremony Parle Francais"
