Give the gift of streetwear by brands made in San Antonio

November 24, 2018

Don’t let all the Air Jordans fool you. Inzzo’s Shed in downtown San Antonio is just as much as about the hats, hoodies and other streetwear that makes a statement above the ankles as those colorful, collectible kicks that make sneakerheads drool.

In fact, Inzzo’s owner Gilbert Glaster also sports his own clothing line called Unique Knits. The gear includes satirical streetwear spins on Elmo and Curious George, as well as his own comic characters he created based on his childhood with his granddad, all aimed at just about all ages from kids such as his six-year-old daughter, Genesis, to what he calls “older gentlemen.”

The way Glaster sees it, it’s never been a better time to try some streetwear on for size. And if comes from the streets of the city he and his family call home, even better.

“As far as streetwear stuff it’s really accessible,” Glaster said. “What people love is the story behind the brands.”

National brands such as Supreme, A Bathing Ape and Stüssy have elevated the garb of skateboard and hip-hop culture into fashion statements. And a handful of San Antonio streetwear purveyors look to get in on that game.
