"Everything is a risk; especially for what we do, wh"You just do what you think is right." Idol Radec is doing what's right all across the board, not just in their pieces, but also in their ethics. Seventy percent of their clothing isere there's no structure or formula," says Thomas. made in the United States, thus creating jobs, and reducing their ecological footprint. These boys take pride in their country, and want to see people taking pride in themselves. Their price points are not outrageous- they are trying to keep under the radar, so to speak; to remain more conservative in a time where people are sticking to necessities, to pieces that will last, and that can be worn over and over. Idol Radec's clothing is so timeless and so well made that not to buy from them would be a bad investment.
While the line is California based, where all three designers were raised, it is undeniably "New York"- in aesthetic, in attitude and in its prowess. The designers stick to their roots, choosing to stay in California in order to "take things slow" and "gain a following". Idol Radec has already gained a following in the likes of Bloomingdales, who noticed Idol Radec after the brand put their Spring 09 collection in a SoHo pop up store. Bloomie's liked them so much, in fact, that Idol Radec is now being sold at their SoHo and 59th Street locations in New York, and in San Francisco, California. So now you too can get your classic Americana fix, right after you lace up your Alden's and get your scruff shaved at Freeman's Sporting Club. Here's looking at you, kid.

As shown in the below photographs, well-dressed guests mingled and sipped pink cocktails and bottles of 1947 Beer. A black painted bathtub filled with ice served as makeshift fridge, and DJ Errol mixed beats that kept the crowd partying until sunrise.

Cheap Monday strongly believes in bringing the customer fun and trendy styles at amazing prices.

Continuing on through Copenhagen, Berlin, and London, Cheap Monday has already sold 200 of their custom jeans.
