The TeesVsTanks concept came about last year around this same time as a photo shoot titled “A King’s Theme: Tees Vs Tank“ highlighting 5 of some of the dopest brands out of Philadelphia. This year I’ve decided to take it a step further bringing 16 notable local clothing brands together for a 15 game 3 on 3 basketball tournament which took place at Parkside Evans Playground on 53rd and Parkside here in Philadelphia.
The brands included Bellargo, TOBH, Neo Daviso, Dosage’s “3D“, Abstract Thought, Anderung, Red Penguin, Chill Moody’s “nicethings“, Natrl Brn Heart Brkrs, Stay Cool,Geek Clothing, Anml Hse, Ibn Majid, Syck Dayz and of course the home team K.R.T. This was a promotion of peace bringing brand recognition in “kingly” love to show our city that anyone of any diversity, social background, and even financial status can come together for a common good or a friendly game of basketball.
Check out the video recap by Garron Gibbs of Concrete Cakes:
Kings Rule Together has marked down prices on some great summer buys. Shop K.R.T. for the last of summer savings on popular summer tanks ranging from $15.00-$20.00. All sizes and quantities are limited, so snag a tank on this hot deal before it’s too late! – K.R.T.
