Carmelo Anthony, Maino, Vado, Uncle Murda fans of Twnty Two
Twnty Two, a New York City based lifestyle brand specializing in limited edition headwear, is pleased to announce its brand new collection. Each hat in the collection is made from the finest materials and is exclusive, with only 100 made. Centered around the theme for pride in one's city, the new set of forthcoming designs will launch on Memorial Day weekend with the “MIA All Day” collaboration with the hot upscale brand DIEM.
Following that, Twnty Two will release a new hat each month through the summer of 2014. Twnty Two's "All NY" snapback titled the “Derek Jeter Collectors Edition”, is a sure fire hit, dropping on the birthday of the MLB champion. A blue and white snapback, with a specially sewn in patch will honor the retiring Yankee legend in style.
Other fun collabs and "quick strike" type releases are slated for super fans of Twnty Two. To get info on these releases check out @TwntyTwoClo (Instagram ) and the www.Twnty-Two.com website.
Twnty Two was launched in 2013 by respected music journalist Datwon Thomas, Gary Gonzalez and Sade Rogers. The brand made a major splash in their hometown of NYC when they released two signature hats, the ”All NY” hat in honor of the Empire State, and the “BK All Day” hat, a homage to Brooklyn, the “borough that’s thorough”.
The “All NY” hat, which is currently sold out, has been spotted on NY Knicks All-Star, Carmelo Anthony who has worn both the red and the black versions. The “All NY” hat is adorned with a leather brim, gold logo, strap detail and green under brim. The “BK All Day” hat, the first offering from Twnty Two, has been rocked by Brooklyn rap artists Maino and Uncle Murda, as well as radio legend Ed Lover. Drenched with a python brim, the black leather hat features the letters BK in white and offers a pop of color with a red under brim.
"It's been amazing to see the brand gain exposure from ideas that started in conversation between us three,” said Datwon Thomas, Co-Founder of Twnty Two. "Gary handles the design aspects with great detail, Sade brings the business and woman's touch and I do whatever is needed to help. It's a true team effort to build the success of the brand."
The Twnty Two Collection includes the following stylish headwear – The “MIA” hat being released on Memorial Day Weekend, retailing at $100, the “All NY” – Derek Jeter Collectors Hat releasing in June 2014, the “All NY” – Summer Love hat being released in July 2014 and the “All LA” – Royalty Reign being released in August 2014. All headwear can be purchased at select retailers and www.twnty-two.com

About Twnty Two
Formed in 2013, Twnty Two is a brand comprised of three dopeness lovers. Gary, Sade and Datwon think everything should be hot enough for you to rock anytime, anyplace and anyway you want. So the mission of our team is to make sure we create products that fits your fresh.
The homebase is New York City, but we are internationally zoned, as you'll see by the products on the horizon. To open a new brand in these times is usually frowned upon as everybody has a new company making hats and tees and such, yet we love the aspect of creativity in clothing and accessories. With that, we had to throw our "hats" in the ring and bang with the best of them. Cus that's what we plan on being, the best of them.
As we double up with the Twnty Two movement, we urge you to trust us in bringing the best purchasing experience and styles to your attention. Join our journey and if you have already copped one of our pieces, thanks for your support.
