My new favorite TV Show: HBO's "How to Make it in America"

I can't rave enough about this show. So Authentic. So gritty. So street. So hustler. So skater. So baller. Sooooo NEW YORK CITY!

This show is about a couple guys trying to make it as designers of urban hoodies & t-shirts. It really reminds me of my favorite, grass-roots t-shirt brand, Oaklandish.

HBO absolutely nails the authenticity. The skateboarding, the street food and the most incredibly hip music tracks and still-photograph montages sprinkled throughout every show. Each episode is like a master work of street-level art; each is like a love letter to NYC ... kind of like every Oaklandish t-shirt is a love letter to the great city of Oakland.
