If you live in Portland, your schedule has changed significantly in the past few weeks. You’ve been spending every other night at a bar or in front of a tv SOMEWHERE, screaming along with the rest of the 503, rooting on the hottest thing in the city, the Trailblazers. The second hottest thing in these streets, behind the team itself, is #TRILLBLAZIN, a #MOVEMENT that started on instagram and has since started a run of shirts combining the font and aesthetic of Tumblr-gods ‘BEEN TRILL‘ and the ever influential Blazer heroes of the 90’s.
What is Trillblazin for those that don’t know? Would you describe it as a clothing brand?
TRILLBLAZIN IS A #MOVEMENT, NOT A CLOTHING BRAND.
Where did the idea for Trillblazin come from?
TRILLBLAZIN IS BASED ON A BETTER TIME FOR BLAZER FANS. IT’S BASED ON TRUE HEROES LIKE RASHEED WALLACE, ZACH RANDOLPH AND DAMON STOUDAMIRE. AND LESSER KNOWN PLAYERS LIKE SCOTTIE PIPPEN AND SHAWN KEMP, TOO.
Favorite Portland sports moment?
Why did you choose to emulate Been Trill? What influenced you about their movement?
FIGURED TRILLBLAZIN SHOULD MAKE A HOT LINE INTO A HOT SONG.
What do you think about the Portland fashion scene?
TRILLBLAZIN DOESN’T THINK. TRILLBLAZIN ACTS. AND TRILLBLAZIN HAS CREATED #FASHION FOR PORTAND.
What do you think of the Trailblazers squad this year?
WILL BARTON AND THOMAS ROBINSON HAVE A GREAT THING GOIN. MO GOTTI WAS THE PERFECT ADD TO THE TEAM TO GET THEM TO BREAK THROUGH. DAME AND ALDRIDGE ARE NICE TOO.
MORE HEAT. MORE TEES. MORE PICS. MORE OTHER STUFF, TOO.
