CLSC – Simple and Classic, stay true.

CLSC first started out with six partners who developed 20 ideas for brand names on a piece of paper. Through process of elimination, they narrowed the list down to Honor Roll and Classic Ambition. Classic Ambition was favored, but it was too long. So they dropped
the ambition and cut up Classic to become CLSC which also stands for Can’t Live Scared of Change.

l

CLSC comes from California, not stereotypical sunny casual California, but from the vivid, classic, diverse and iconic city of Los Angeles. CLSC is a lifestyle, an inspiration, just like special moments captured by the camera lens – classic moments in time. CLSC combines elements of sports, drugs, sex, and music into their emblematic creations, thereby energizing and opening your mind.

CLSC’s favorite motto, “Sucks to Suck,” is simple, yet impactful. When your friends gets into bad situations, it is an expression used to feel sorry for them or even tease them, depending on what happened. We live in an imperfect world, and shit happens, so we can express our feelings through clothes without saying a word – and CLSC understands that.

CLSC owner, Josh Vides, was an employee for one of the most popular brands in the streetwear world: The Hundreds. He was constantly inspired during his time there, and he became a street-culture enthusiast. So with endless ideas and a desire to do even more, he formed CLSC. Living in a house with no A/C, existing on cheap food and drink, he kept his dream alive and worked tirelessly to make it happen.

sc

Since 2009, CLSC continues to grow stronger. Now they’re going global, showing the world their unique designs that give their fans the opportunity to express their own uniqueness while spreading the “classic” lifestyle. Josh has not only reached a career milestone, a personal milestone – he became a father. He is true to his family, just as he is true to his brand.

CLSC’s legacy lies with its fans –champions of individuality who are notbeing afraid to express their opinions about sports, sex and music. Josh is working hard to make sure “CLSC” is a vocabulary everyone will know, and his hope is that the brand inspires its fans and encourages people to demonstrate their style and individualistic approach
to life.

Team tee

Jackie Robinson was the first black player to play in the MLB. He played for the Brooklyn Dodgers. After Jackie left the league and had passed away, his number was retired in 1997. Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees was the last person in sports to be able to wear the number 42, now that Rivera has retired, there will never be another player to wear the number 42 in sports. Moving forward CLSC will be utilizing this number to pay tribute to the late and great Jackie Robinson who changed the history of sports so many years ago. Available in black, white, heather, and navy.

TAIWANDERINGS WITH CLSC

Josh’s first ever pop-up shop is located in a country he has never been to before – Taiwan. See what he thinks about this journey, and what happened on the event day. Also see how he wandered around in the city of Taipei, and trying new, cool, or even bizarre food.

1st Day
Josh’s journey started from wandering around Taipei city(in the morning. After a series of interviews in the afternoon, he made it to some of the famous spots such as Long-Shan Temple ”龍山寺”, Wan-Hua Sector ”萬華區”, and Hua-Xi Street ”華西街” a.k.a. Snake Alley.  He had a great experience and a big culture shock with Taiwanese culture and foods on the very first day.

2nd Day
This is the day when all the events will be unleashed. And Josh finally visited his very first pop-up shop.

_DSC0401_019

When Josh first stepped into the store, he was greeted by the CLSC’s theme decor filled with their signature red and “world map” pattern design.   We invited “IP Lockers” to perform “Locking” as a starter, following by a quick interview and social party (special thanks to Heineken!). We also have a CLSC backdrop which allow selfie lovers to preserve this precious memory forever.

3rd  day
Josh decided to shoot lookbook photos in Ximending “西門町”, which is most of the young people’s favorite location. Ximending Station Exit #6 is the busiest area in Ximending, and that’s exactly where we started our shooting. The main purpose of this was to create some local contents. Josh was surrounded by a lot of people and we’re wondering what he was doing.

Cruising through the city, Josh headed to the Skate Park with some cool graffiti paintings to do more lookbook shooting.

4th day
On the last day of his trip in Taiwan, we took him somewhere nice to visit. Tamsui “淡水” is the northern part of Taipei, an actual riverside town. Josh had a blast at the castle called Fort San Domingo ” 紅毛城” that was originally built by the Spanish in 1629. After this awesome trip in Tamsui, he enjoyed Shinlin night market “士林夜市”where all the good foods are served.

John visited Endless Sun (Xiao Mao) who is one of the most famous tattoo artist . He got  a cool tattoo “經典台灣” which means classic Taiwan!

Not only for business, Josh had a nice trip to Taiwan for these 4 days. We hope we can have him again in Taiwan.

CLSC Pop-up Shop in Taiwan

The CLSC lifestyle lands in Taipei this January, when the innovative U.S. brand’s first pop-up shop in the world will debut at HOPES – the U.S. multi-brand store located on the fourth floor  of Eslite Wuchang in Ximending.

Josh, the talented designer who formerly worked at The Hundreds, started CLSC in 2010 to build an inspiring brand revolving around his views on sex, drugs, sports and music. CLSC, derived from the word “classic,”embraces the spirit of having classic tastes for everything you experience in life. Setting trends, rather than following them, CLSC uses high-quality inventive designs that let you define your own personal style.

CLSC- Can’t Live Scared of Change

CLSC is a new and upcoming street wear brand and the acronym is pronounced “classic.” Josh Vides is the owner and started CLSC in 2009 with a group of friends. He began by designing a small collection of four shirts and released them at a local boutique in Rancho Cucamonga. From there, the brand spread widely and is now carried by well- known retailers including Active Ride Shop.

CLSC has just collaborated with sports- themed apparel, La street wear brand, Hall of Fame. It is a baseball playoff inspired collab with a twist of Josh Vide’s creative designs. The logo that is intertwined with California and LA Dodgers turned out great and is selling really well. Although street wear is crazy competitive, Josh Vides knows how to keep up and create something new, yet innovative.

CLSC

The future goals for this brand is to do a collaboration with In- N- Out and the New York Yankees. Vides also hopes to increase the success of this brand and have it be carried worldwide. He is very involved with his buddies and would love to be able to support his friends/ family from CLSC.
