Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by Eric Emanuel, the king of coziness, basketball short baller, and champion of fleece. He discusses how 2018 has been a banner year for him, seeing several collaborations with New Era, Rowing Blazers, and adidas. It's Thanksgiving in America this week, and we're thankful for the continued spirit of consumerism.

We carry on the conversation from the last podcast, mostly lamenting about how we took the biggest L in the world on the Palace x Ralph Lauren drop. As always, we welcome...

The Dropcast #32: Spoopy Stories to Tell in the Dark

10/25/2018
More
Hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon head to the Berlin office to hang out with our German colleagues but mostly to interrupt the office workflow by recording our annoying podcast.

Hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by Nigel Minani and Robbie Russell from the Highsnobiety Berlin office. It's their first time in New York, and boy are they excited to eat all the things that make Americans fat! Of course, you can't visit America without being reminded of cold hard capitalism, an overly negative sentiment fueled by the current political climate, and the sheer amount of...

Hosts Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon are joined by Davin Gentry and Scooty Hallums of Washington DC-based label and nightlife spot Diet Starts Monday and cozy clothing brand Premium Co. They discuss Hedi Slimane's debut at Celine (minus the accent over the "e"), and talk about how despite the criticism, it might make good business sense for the label. As one of the guests points out—that doesn't necessarily mean it's a good thing for fashion. Then something surprising happens when we start to...

Hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas are joined by Naina Kamath and Byron Stewart to discuss the hottest news topics of the week. First up is Michael Kors' recent acquisition of Versace, a $2.1 billion deal that actually makes more sense than critics might think. Then things get particularly heated over an op-ed published this week, one that posits that maybe Space Jam is actually a terrible film. Chairs get thrown and bottles are turned into knives as the crew goes head-to-head over this...

Hosts Jian DeLeon and Noah Thomas are joined by Sydney Gore and George Ocampo. They talk about the success of the film Crazy Rich Asians and explain why it's not the Asian Black Panther.

Kanye West also gave us a look at his current sneaker rotation, with a few surprises amidst rows and rows of YEEZY...

8/8/2018

Noah Thomas and Jian DeLeon, are joined by Grailed’s editor-in-chief (and Highsnob alum) Greg Babcock, and of course, Grailed brand director Lawerence Schlossman. They talk about how KITH’s bot-tricking URL swap is a modern stroke of brilliance, and which attorneys probably cater to salty fuccbois. The big theme of the week is the greatest Japanese designers of all time, because it’s the ideal way to plug Grailed’s latest Heatwave giveaway featuring rare Japanese collectibles. Learn a bit...

Noah Thomas, Jian DeLeon, and fashion editor-at-large Corey Stokes are once again joined by Grailed Brand Director Lawrence Schlossman.

Once again, Lawrence assumes a venerable fashion industry old has died by now. Listen and find out who he accidentally kills this week. Later on, Dropcast listeners weigh in with their answers to the question of the week: What is...
