Zoo York

Zoo York was the surprise hit for the store this summer, 95% sell through at full price, great stuff when you compare it with Addict 26% & MHI 15%, indeed quite a difference.
Price is obviously a key seperator, Zoo York T's all come in at £20 against £30/£40 but the prints on Zoo York T's were really strong.

Just been to see the range for next summer and its the best range ive seen out of all the brands we have coming in, not just T's, Sweats, Zippers, Hoodies, Shirts, Jackets & Hats.
We have a limited drop of Zoo York coming into us in August so when it drops do not sleep on it as we only have 1 of a size coming in.

It began in the early '70s in the undisputed center of the universe, New York City. Championed by a tight-knit crew of progressive minds who lived and breathed NYC's raw creative energy, a unique social movement began to take root that was strongly influenced by NYC's unforgiving streets and colorful weave of global flavors. The Soul Artists of Zoo York sprang to life from Manhattan's Riverside Park and built a thriving scene with aerosol, skateboards, block rockin' beats, and originality at its core that quickly took on a life of its own and became an unstoppable global force.By the dawn of the '80s, the term Zoo York had come to firmly symbolize NYC's underground sect of artists, b-boys, skateboarders, punks, and their various creative off-shoots. The Zoo York revolution was in full effect as graf writers bombed trains, DJ's mastered the wheels of steel, and skateboarders staked their claim to now legendary spots like Astor, Washington Square, and the Brooklyn Banks.
In 1993, OG skateboarders Rodney Smith, Eli Morgan Gessner, and Adam Schatz teamed up to found the East Coast's first true skateboarding-inspired lifestyle brand - Zoo York. The trio siphoned creative inspiration from NYC's rapidly evolving skateboarding, hip-hop, and graffiti scenes to produce a variety of culturally relevant, authentic products that were dark and gritty like New York City. What began as a simple line of decks and T-shirts steadily grew into a full blown streetwear collection marked by military surplus, urban-athletic styling that was designed to withstand the city's rugged terrain.
Today, Zoo York is a highly evolved, globally recognized brand with unbreakable East Coast attitude and dialect. As it has since day one, The Institute's product line continues to be heavily influenced by skateboarding, graffiti, hip-hop, punk, and everything in between. The Manhattan-based brand proudly serves up a wide range of casual, utilitarian looks for men, women, and youths that fuse authentic military-influenced overtones with iconic Zoo York City imagery to capture the raw essence of NYC. Additionally, the company continues to be backed strongly by the Zoo Crew which includes original NYC graffiti artists, designers, musicians, new and old school skateboarders, and some of the biggest names in the surf, snow, BMX, and motocross communities.
