VH07V SPOTTED!

This week’s “Spotted” shot for VH07V is of University of Hawaii Men’s Basketball star Forward Isaac Fotu. Bruddah Isaac (@Ifotu42) and I got to talking on Twitter and it turns out that he likes the brand. He wanted to buy some VH07V gear so we met up for the exchange. What a cool guy! As a season ticket holder, I was stoked to meet one of the team’s baddest players (IMO)! Best of luck to Isaac and the rest of the team this season! And mahalo again for the support Isaac!

MISSING CAT!

Our friends’ cat Hachi has been missing for the last 13 days and I need your help finding him. Please Share this blog with all of your Mililani friends so that we can bring him safely home to his owners. Here’s a personal note from them:

Our cat, Hachi, has been missing since December 27th. We recently moved back to the Mililani Uka area and we think that he might have gotten disoriented.

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week’s “Spotted“, we have another video of a little SkinnyHawaiians silliness involving everyone’s favorite drink: Green River. A few months ago, I posed a question out to y’all about where the BIL can find some Green River in Hawaii these days. After researching that, I actually tried to make it on my own and suddenly became an expert at it. 😛 Here’s how that turned out…

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* My two new colorways are FINALLY in! Gray/Green for the new football season and Blue/Pink (partially for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure walk)! Both are selling like hotcakes so far, especially the Gray/Green one!

New Blue/Pink & Gray/Green colorways from VH07V

* Speaking of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, my friend Shari continues to sell products and get mad donations for her team: Team VH07V! As of this writing, her team is up to $625 in donations and is at 63% of her $1,000 goal. Help them reach that goal by clicking on that link and making your tax deductible donation! I will also personally donate proceeds from the sale of the Blue/Pink VH07V shirts during this drive right back to Shari and her team. If you’d like to join her team and walk, click on this link.

* Last week’s tailgating kine action prior to the Hawaii Warriors vs. Lamar Cardinals game was a great success. Did you guys go? Got to hang out with some friends I haven’t seen in a long time and have a few before the game. Even got a good seat to catch a glimpse of the first ever Warrior Walk, a tradition that coach Norm Chow instituted this year where the players and coaches walk through the crowd before heading towards the stadium. Here’s some footage I was able to catch of the first ever Warrior Walk:


Warrior Walk – First Hawaii Warrior Walk Before Lamar Game

* As one of the sponsors for this year’s Rice Fest (duh!), VH07V will be responsible for producing both the official Rice Fest shirt (for sale at the event at the VH07V booth) and the shirt for all volunteers. Check out this sample for our volunteers. Pretty legit right? 🙂

Pray for Jay Fundraiser

And lastly… Jon Yamasato, a fellow Kaiser alumni reached out to me and asked if I could help support his friend Jay Veltri, who, at just 33 years old, is in the middle of his 2nd “battle for survivorship” with cancer.

This Saturday, September 8, 2012, the day before Jay’s 34th birthday, there will be a fundraiser held at a private estate at Paiko Lagoon (near Kuliouou). Suggested ticket donation is $25. The festivities will include a live band, buffet, children’s activities, a silent auction, raffle prizes and more! For fundraising ticket information, visit jayveltri.com.

I don’t know Jay personally, but because of our many mutual friends, it feels like I do, so I donated to his fight. If you are also able to donate to his fight or purchase tickets for the fundraising event this Saturday, please do. And please Pray for Jay… Mahalo!

Pray for Jay

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Here’s a mockup of a couple new colorways I’ve been cooking up. The one on the top will hopefully be ready just in time for football season 8) , while the one on the bottom is a colorway I thought might work well for my friend who is involved with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure walk. While they can use it as a fundraiser for their team, for any sales I personally make, I could also donate part of the proceeds back to the foundation. All for a good cause. What do you guys think of either of them?

Two new colorways dropping soon!

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week’s “Spotted“, we got a couple of fans/supporters sending their VH07V all the way from San Francisco’s picturesque Golden Gate Bridge! They are sporting the Blue/White Logo T colorway and the Black/White Logo T colorway.

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Put in a new order for a new colorway I’ve been cooking up, and also put in yet another “fill-in” order! Things are almost getting to that point where I need to outsource fulfillment services. Luckily, I have friends who do that so if ever I need to, it will hopefully make sense to go with them!

* Another reminder that VH07V will be sponsoring this year’s Rice Fest (duh!) and will produce the office Rice Fest shirt (for sale at the event) and will be the official T-shirt provider for all volunteers. If you’re interested in volunteering on September 29th from 11am-7pm, holla atcho boy! 🙂

VH07V SPOTTED!

For this week’s “Spotted“, we got another video sighting of VH07V. Real estate extraordinaire, island entertainer, and all around nice guy Jon Yamasato recently wore his Blue/White Logo VH07V shirt on his popular HI*Sessions Youtube show. Check that entire Youtube channel out! Awesome resource for local Hawaiian music!

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* Ever since columnist Alana Folen covered VH07V in last week’s MidWeek, (new) business has been picking up some steam. Big mahalos to Alana and the rest of the team at MidWeek!

* Moved into my much cozier/spacious/convenient storage space at Hawaii Self Storage. Got a lot more elbow room now to fill up with additional inventory, fold clothes and fulfill orders l’dat! Mahalos to the friendly staff at HSS!

* VH07V will be sponsoring this year’s Rice Fest (duh!), but the even more exciting part is that in addition to having a booth there to sell VH07V merch galore, I will printing up the official Rice Fest shirts for this year which will be worn by all volunteers. Another version of the shirt will also be sold at the VH07V booth with part of the proceeds going back to our main beneficiary: Lanakila Meals on Wheels!

* May have another potential “giving back” type of project in the works, but I don’t really want to talk about that yet in case it doesn’t happen. More on that to come.

* Got some exciting things cooking lately including new designs/styles for shirts/tops, new hats, and more! Speaking of which, here’s another unofficial survey for y’all! What do you guys think of the following hat samples? Will probably go forward with the more popular one(s).

VH07V is featured in this week’s Midweek!

* The other week, I was interviewed by Midweek columnist Alana Folen for a column she writes called “Entrepreneurs”. What an exciting honor! I had no idea when it was supposed to come out until some friends recently started telling me “Congratulations!” I didn’t get my copy in the mail yet, but hopefully soon! Mahaloz Alana! For now, here’s a link to the article online: “New Clothing Line Promotes Aloha” and below is a photo of the article that our very own carokun took and sent to me.

VH07V SPOTTED!

How’s this for a cool “Spotted” shot!? Big Island blogger extraordinaire Damon Tucker wore his VH07V shirt while going skydiving with the folks at Skydive Hawaii. Here’s his blog on the experience, and below is his video. He said he purposely asked them to flip him over – MID-AIR! – to show off the VH07V upside-down! Now that’s a true loyalist! 😉


Taking VH07V to new heights! Damon Tucker does his 4th dive with Skydive Hawaii with his VH07V shirt on! Sick!

Weekly VH07V T-Shirt Updates!

* My “fill-in” order to replenish low quantities of existing VH07V stock is IN! I’ve been so crazy busy with everything else though that it’s just been sitting in the boxes at storage for the last week or so. 😦

* Speaking of storage, things have been picking up so much that I’ve had to upgrade the size of my unit at Hawaii Self Storage. Mahalos to the friendly staff there for helping to make the transition an easy one! Photos of the move to come!

* Speaking of things picking up, here’s a fun little thing we recently did through social media. My super talented, yet very unassuming designer friend mocked up four sample designs for VH07V and we put them to a vote. The idea was that if one of them got super good kine response, that would be the next design to be released. It turned out that all designs got about the same amount of positive feedback.

Whatchu guys tink? Maybe you can be the tie-breaker? Which design do you like best? #1, #2, #3 or #4?
