    At 3:10 who were the two other guys in the photo next to him?

    The only thing I would say is beware if the other generation does not want to get involved. I’ve got a close friend who’s father imagined he would take over his family business and the son did not want to. It created for sure tension and pressure.

    Wow, serious knowledge



  8. P Jacobson on March 18, 2022 at 5:39 pm

    This guy is inspiring because he literally started from the bottom and took from that key lessons that he later implemented in his rise to success. He doesn’t act entitled rather humble and gracious. A real cool and genuine guy. (At least that’s the impression I got from this interview)

    If it wasn’t for the fashion of hip hop this guy wouldn’t of made it.I remember late 70s to 80ees we use rock Tims and sheepskin/shearling coats which we bought from Delancey street right off the Manhattan bridge.

    These blueprint will teach you that selling without passion and faith will not win your goals, especially your ideal vision. Thus you don’t have to compete but complete…



  16. HAMANSUTRA on March 18, 2022 at 5:49 pm

    The best idea was to open a Store on Flatbush Ave. That really impressive me, cause nobody really will open a Store in one of the dangerous areas. #kith

    Aside from Ronnie being a legend in the sneaker and streetwear realm, those chairs are so freaking cool 👀

    -Learn HVAC get a job , get a van , start your side hustle / side work. Build your empire.. Get a low budget beach spot in Puerto Rico , maybe Philippines , Vietnam, Mexico ..etc… I chose PR cuz you don’t need a passport with a felony and can go there on the weekends and get back for work… Let others run your business , sit back check your bank account… Not saying shoes or clothing can’t be done.. but ,,,, good luck… I gave u a more realistic blue print that will work.. fyi you can get a certificate in a month and have the government pay for it . Trait work is where it’s at.. being a combat vet helps also, but u will pay something dearly.. street wise , I’m a CWB and been reppin illegal life style since birth ,, most people don’t learn untill it’s to late on the streets ,,, Retired at 36 , not rich but got 4 kids n a nice lil Viet woman and chill n feed the pigeons.. now i volunteer gettin people out of jail threw all alternative Sentancing , threw Psychology and letters .. 🔥… Go get it … And God bless . . 🌬️🌊☘️✨

    Anyone know if this is on Spotify?



  40. P Jacobson on March 18, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    The fashion/shoe designer turned brand are the most interesting come up stories. Complex should have told more of these type stories on the Blue Print series. This interviewer is great because he’s knowledgeable and doesn’t kiss ass or ask lame questions. It’s too bad that shows like Blue Print aren’t shown attention like Sneaker Shopping or Full Size Run . I enjoy shows like this one so much more than those



  41. ToddFieg on March 18, 2022 at 6:14 pm

    Hmmm we have the same last name 👌
