We love it when our stateside family come over to bring us fresh pieces, and last bank holiday our wishes we granted in the form of a pop-up store, held, yet again, at One by One London. This U.S originated brand Ammo Stilo comes from the home of Meek Mill- Philadelphia and they definitely brought their home inspired pieces with them. The brand went one step further by offering free tattoos at One by One’s reputable tattoo studio, you can imagine how quickly that went.
As we pulled up to One by One, there was already a queue of people waiting for the store to open. For a brand we’ve only just been put on to, they certainly have a following in the UK. On walking into the store, the sounds of trap music and and array of lime green was the first thing that we noticed, swiftly followed by a range of high quality T-shirts with Ammo Stilo printed across and a target symbol on the back.
The hottest item in the room, the Stilo chest rig, placed in the center of the store caught everyone’s attention and it wasn’t long till purchase requests were pouring in. From the T-shirts (we’re a fan of the grey by the way), to the socks, belts and other accessories, the brand incorporated the reality of life in Philly into their clothing. Seen on the likes of Young Thug, Dave East, and Lil Durk, the brand clearly has its stake in the US rap scene as they understand each artists’ experience. Speaking to the Ammo Stilo trio, there is definitely a difference between life and crime in the U.S in comparison to London, and this brand has taken life on the corner and put it on tour!
Ammo Stilo is definitely one for the shooters, and they are the real deal not target practice! We wish the guys the best of luck on the rest of the pop-up tour and hope to see them again (perhaps stateside).
