Web Pick #3 – Karmaloop


“It started, like many revolutions, in the underground. A basement to be more specific – Greg’s parents basement to be exact. While hundreds upon thousands of dot.com ventures began to disintegrate, Karmaloop ignored doubts, attacks and negativity (“The Internet?! Ha! You’ll never make money off the Internet!”) after that moving operations to a dilapidated piano factory run by a lunatic landlord… and subsequently chasing out crackheads busting in the office, grinding for low or no money while working other “day jobs,” dealing with floods, theft, and fraudsters, engaging in drinking binges and making numerous trips to New York on the Fung Wah Bus aka “the Chicken Run”. All of it to get the gear you really wanted into your closet and concrete culture into your mind. Yet through it all Karmaloop never lost faith for one good reason…cause you had their back.”

Karmaloop is an American based apparel retailer. Pushing boundaries in fashion culture, the guys at Karmaloop represent hundreds of the biggest brands out there. The organisation also runs other sub retailers, including PLNDR and Kazbah, offering a huge variety of styles to meet the requirements of any and all.

I’ve made a couple of purchases from Karmaloop, and have had nothing but positive experiences. The product variety is huge, and at very reasonable prices, even taking into account UK delivery charges, and taxes.

Oh, and as a member of the Karmaloop Rep Team, make sure to use the code ‘thm93’ on any purchases, to get a 20% discount!

Their Story



About Tom McCluskey

My name is Tom, and this is my blog! I'm 19 years of age, and just beginning my 2nd year of a BSc/BA Product Design degree at Bournemouth University, UK. Otherwise, I live at home in Romford, London (not Essex!) during the summer period. Design is something I'm taking ever more seriously in life. Starting my degree, hoping to explore a field I had dabbled in with GCSE Graphics at school, design has gradually become something of an obsession. Shoe/Trainer/Sneaker design is something that particularly interests and inspires me, I'm quite the "sneakerhead", and I plan on using this blog to showcase my journey through university, and beyond. When it comes to extracurricular activities, I'm a big fan of sports, football and badminton in particular. West Ham United are my team, and you'd struggle to find a more passionate fan. Just ask my girlfriend, I was absolutely delirious when we won the play off's final against Blackpool earlier this year, COYI! Anyway, I hope you enjoy what I've got to showcase here in my blog, thanks for dropping by. Tom.
