About Black Scale:
Street-wear brand Black Scale is the brainchild of founders Michael “Mega” Yabut and Alfred De Tagle. In 2007, the company started with street-wear fundamentals of T-shirts and hats, but has since branched out into outerwear and accessories.
“We wanted to do a brand that not only represented our style of fashion, but also [one] that represented the way we think,” says Yabut.
Over the last five years Black Scale has also released collaborations with artists including Jun Cha, Apex, Norm 1, Usugrow other brands like Ssur, HUF, Gourmet as well as a recent, high-profile collection with A$AP Rocky and Fool’s Gold. “Black Scale comes from us learning to balance our darker side.” The word “black” conjures images of the mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility, while “scale” helps regulate and set the brand’s way of thinking. Balance is a key to our aesthetic. Without balance, our vision is irrelevant and meaningless.
This season, fingercroxx works with San Francisco’s hip street wear brand Black Scale for its special 2013 Autumn/ Winter crossover collection. The collection, inspired by baseball culture, boasts a series of fashion reinterpreting classic baseball wear. The collection taps on the cool black-and-white palette, matched with sharp red highlights. For the prints, both collaborators’ logos and brand initials “B” and “F” are seen across the fashion line. To add a unique American street wear twist to the fashions, star prints are also featured as a main visual.
The crossover collection includes baseball jacket, tee, sweat shirt and pants, scarves and New Era snapback cap and more. Limited edition baseball jacket is crafted out of black wool and its sleeves in quality leather. A variety of embroideries are incorporated on the design for a more refreshing interpretation of the classic style. To echo the edgy baseball theme, designers not only added different badges in the series but also the number “13” on to the jacket in commemorating the crossover collection launching in year 2013- a true collector’s item. Designers also reinterpreted Black Scale’s signature reversed American national flag print on the hoodie from the special collection. Both sleeves of the hoodie feature the two brands’ logos while flocking star prints land on the hood for a one-of-a-kind design.
In tribute of American pop culture. fingercroxx and Black Scale worked together with famous headwear brand New Era for a special cap. Apart from logos of both brands, the bottom of the black faux leather cap peak features Black Scale’s signature reversed American national flag print. The design is subtle luxurious and flaunts designers exceptional creativity. Also, as a tradition for all crossover collections, fingercroxx designs a skateboard line as an extension of the collaboration. For this special collaboration, America-based Black Scale takes over the production themselves for originality and top-notch quality. The product will be a timeless collector’s piece for supporters of both brands.
