Supra Event

Us with the man himself, Chad Muska. Get your (Muska) Skytop II's today at Highpoint Shoes.


Thanks, Again

We just wanted to take a brief time out to say thank you. We have had some pretty special things going on and we could not have done it without a strong core of people and supporters. Slim and I have been working on DD for almost 2 years now, and while our offerings have been minimal thus far, the future is definitely bright.

Have a good holiday.... "shit just got real".



We have a mascot... her name is Olive.

Fresh Ink

Today, Slim popped the cherry on his right arm with a new tatt. Andrick (the artist) is young, but is fuckin DOPE. More to come for sure.

This one is dark, but it reads "Family First"

Is It Winter Yet!?

As we approach the colder months of the year (I know some of the country is already there, but in AZ, we are still approaching), I begin to switch things around in my closets and prepare for winters best. Winter clothing has a certain character about it that cannot be captured in any other season of apparel. Not just cause of the obvious characteristics of length and weight, but more-so for the particular colors, patterns and of course, materials. Here is just a few examples of what I mean and why I get so hyped about winter.


2 New Accounts... get ready!

Yep, we are happy to announce that Dearly Departed will be shipping a small amount of product to two respected boutiques in California. Kingdom in the San Francisco area has signed up, as well as Versus (retail location of Us Versus Them) in Temecula. A big thank you to both parties for believing. If you live out in these areas, SHOW SUPPORT. More to come later.

HP 2-Year Party

That's right, our favorite sneaker/apparel shop will be celebrating its second year of operation next Friday, the 13th. Join us for music, drinks, sneaks, & and maybe a surprise or two.


Tenderloin Project x Black Scale. REAL SHIT.

The Tenderloin Project: help and awareness to San Francisco's troubled Tenderloin area, is in full swing. This video shows a little insight to some of the areas inhabitants and gives them a real "human" aspect. I think sometimes in life, we write-off people like this as just plain objects in our environment... like a rock or a sign... but they are in fact human like the rest of us and sometimes it takes a group or a video to bring light to that, Unfortunately. Black Scale has done up a small run of apparel in conjunction with this project and all proceeds will go back to benefit the people of the area. Available at the new Black Scale flagship store.

Highpoint x Acapulco Gold 2yr anniversary set

As you know, Highpoint will be throwing a party this Friday to celebrate its 2yr anniversary. To make things super legit, they have teamed up with Acapulco Gold for this shirt and snapback set. Highpoint is AG's only account in the state, as they lend their east coast skate style to us in the dry desert. Be sure to pick something up at the party as soon as you get there... these will go fast!



Blakroc: Ain't Nothing Like You (Hoochie Coo) Ft. Mos Def and Jim Jones from Jonah Schwartz on Vimeo.

I like it.
Video reminds me of my days as a recording studio intern... before real life bashed my face in.



DPRTD buttons

Look, a few more treats from your pals over here at Dearly Departed. Our 1 inch buttons come in two styles, in black/white. We suggest placement on the side of that new DD wool snapback you just bought!
