One of the most exciting things that I discovered at Agenda NYC was the legendary urban apparel brand Cross Colours is back and better than ever!! What was even cooler than that was I got to meet the founder and owner Carl Jones! Carl is a pioneer of urban apparel AKA street wear and a legend in the HipHop community. After a long 20 year hiatus, it’s awesome to see him doing it again. The new Cross Colours line will be coming out this spring, make sure you support!
