So I was at In-N-Out today, making my usual round..
When this older woman stopped by.
Now I was halfway in the bite of my 4x4 animal style burger,
when she said...
"Those are some pretty cool glasses, you know you're cool when you're wearing those.."
After I swallowed, my first inital shock was.. hey, this somewhat elderly woman knows
whats up! I was suprised she even knew what brand I was wearing...
The next few words that came out of her mouth amazed the shit out of me...
"Yeah, my son owns that brand."
I got goosebumps and a all hot real quick.
I said, "Wait.. did you say your son owns this brand?!"
She replied, "Why yes, my son and Mr. Arnette used to design together"
[she said something like that..]
The brand of sunglasses I was wearing, was Electric.
The mother, of the owner of Electric Sunglasses was complementing me on my sunglasses.
Yeah, it wasnt the real guy but come on.. I was a bit star struck.
So my mom, [promoting my line wherever she can] comes into the conversation,
"Well yeah, the glasses are great. Thats all my son wears. Actually.. my son has his
own clothing line..." Woman replies, "Oh really? How neat! Which one is it?"
[I can speak for myself] I say, "Casen Kreation. But the "C" in "Creation" is actually a "K"
Even before she asks about my line, Im already reaching for my wallet, hoping to God that
I have one of my brand new business cards that I just got made in my wallet...
The woman replies back, "Why that is so good!, its good that you are doing something at such
a young age..." My mom butts in, "I know right?! He's always had a passion for clothing..."
blah blah blah. So.. I look in my superman wallet, and no. It cant be.. I dont have a damn business card to save my life! Mom says, "Oh no son.. you should always have a card on you!?" [im thinking, wow] Shes looking through her purse.. the woman is looking at us like we're crazy. She asks, "Well what was the name again?" I tell her. "Oh okay, i'll be sure to tell my son about you." Doubtful she will forget... Now she wasnt the mother to Supreme or Johnny Cupcakes, but nonetheless a mother whose son is important! I could have gave her a card, and maybe would have had a Electric x Casen Kreation collabo... SHIT! That pretty much made, and did my day.
LESSON LEARNED: ALWAYS HAVE BUSINESS CARDS ON YOU! You never know what mom who has a son that owns a mult-million/billion dollar company you might meet!
Well then... on another note.. I've been getting alot of feedback from the pictures I've posted on the Summer 08 Collection. Thank you. They will be made available to the online store hopefully in days... You can check out the myspace at www.myspace.com/casenkreation The website is still not up, I know I know, majorly slacking it.
