100 Thieves apparel is led by VP of Brand & Apparel Doug Barber, who joined the company in 2019 from premium athleticwear brand Reigning Champ, in collaboration with 100 Thieves’ founder & CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag. Barber is joined by Jide Osifeso and Jan Upright, who round out the brand’s design and development team. Notably, Osifeso joins 100 Thieves coming off a prolific 2019 in which he launched his own brand Hymne, the Weeping Eye collection with Reigning Champ, and led the design for Kendrick Lamar’s recent collaboration with Nike, the React Element 55 KL.
“My goal since Day 1 with 100 Thieves has been to elevate apparel in the gaming community. Doug, Jide, and Jan have been instrumental in bringing this dream to life,” said Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, Founder & CEO of 100 Thieves. “This first collection and our retail experience is the most progressive creative work we’ve done at 100 Thieves, and I’m so proud to have Doug, Jide, and Jan leading these efforts.”
100 Thieves has also revealed more details about its 2020 apparel program. Consisting of six capsule collections featuring a full range of unisex items, this marks a significant shift in strategy for the brand. After dropping just three collections in 2019, the brand found itself heavily traded on aftermarket platforms, making them one of the Top 20 brands on StockX in 2019.
“For 2020 we wanted to create something completely new for the 100 Thieves community. In response to what we heard from our fans, this year we’re making our best ever apparel, doing more regular drops, and putting more product in the hands of our supporters,” said Barber.
