Carlos of Classic Material | Interview
Carlos is the mastermind behind the t-shirt designs of Classic Material. The Manhattan-born, Brooklyn-raised individual founded the Classic Material firm in 2004, after owning and operating a clothing store in Poughkeepsie since 1997. He became inspired to design his own shirts that reflects his deep love for true school hip hop music and culture. All of the shirts include a hip hop reference, from Run DMC to Gang Starr to Ghostface Killah and more. Many of hip hop’s greatest artists are seen wearing Classic Material in photo shoots as well as candid photos in public. Check out ClassicMaterialNY.com.
