A discussion including Duffer St George, KU USA, Luke 1977, Momotaro and Ed Hardy.
“yes, duffer had a store in london. he wanted exclusive which i gave him. then he didnt come to our stand one season, so i assumed he was moving on. i then sold to jones in covent garden (now gone). at that point, duffer did not pay me for my last shipment to them.
currently ku is only available in japan and at our store in los angeles. togged also carries some. we make 108 pcs only of everything so we sell out in our markets. i dont feel like building a big manufacturing/shipping company. i want to focus more on interior design and hand crafted items, some of which may be clothing.
ku started the ed hardy brand, and then we licensed it out. ”
