Throughout the cold winter months in Brooklyn, New York, our friends Crows Nest Barbershop, led by Uppercut Deluxe Ambassador Jon Roth hosted a pop up Barbershop in The General DQM by Vans. The Vans DQM General, first opened in September 2011 in a landmark building in New York’s historic SoHo district, represents the bringing together of two iconic groups – the Dogtown crew and the New York crew. The store presents the very best of Vans, thoughtfully curated in a custom built, boutique environment
The popup Crows Nest Barbershop hosted barbers from all over, dishing out tight cut to visitors from far and wide. The popup was a celebration of the Barber trade with multiple events giving back to supporters. Shane Nesbitt made the trip from San Francisco to help share his wealth of knowledge to local East Coast barbers, the opening night hosted iconic hip-hop duo Eric B. & Rakim, Mike Conti travelled from upstate to cut in Guest Spots, and a highlight for everyone involved was the Barbershops of America exhibit by Rob Hammer accompanied by a DJ set from Walter Schreifles.
To celebrate the popup we produced a limited number of collaboration tins which moved out quickly, for those lucky few who managed to get their hands on one.
