Few streetwear labels have endured the test of time like Stüssy has. Born from the California surf scene of the early 80s, Stüssy has been around for almost 40 years, and while most of its contemporaries are either gone or irrelevant, the brand continues to hold a fairly respectable stature in fashion today. And even as Stüssy expands its reaches around the world, its identity remains intact—mostly because the clothes are always solid, simple staples.

Last December, Stüssy continued its worldwide expansion with a pop-up in Metro Manila, through lifestyle boutique Commonwealth and its "POV" space in SM Aura Premier. This included a release of our very own city-specific Stock T-shirts, printed with "Manila" in the brand's logotype.

Now, months after, Commonwealth is dropping another capsule collection of T-shirts and hoodies with the same "Manila" print. This includes over-dyed long- and short-sleeve tees and hoodies in orchid, lime, natural, and black.

To launch it, they've released something of a capsule lookbook featuring iconic Filipino alt-rock band Sandwich: Raymund Marasigan, Diego Castillo, Mong Alcaraz, Myrene Academia, and Mike Dizon. The photos were taken by Jake Verzosa who, as it happens, also shot Esquire's Eraserheads cover. Check it out:

Pieces from the Stüssy Manila capsule are available at Commonwealth SM Aura Premier starting today.
