Ben Solomon aka King Solomon of IRAK has just unveiled his Nike Sportswear Bespoke Destroyer Jacket and we are really feeling it. He utilized a selection of iconography, art work and symbols that he’s used over the years were created onto iconic patches and applied to his jacket.
On the back patch King Solomon describes the back as a tribute to IceBerg Leather jackets, it features my alter ego from the Duffed Out universe and his sidekick Xannie the kid in their spaceship (American Made of course). Trademarked, just to be clear. Those characters were created by long time friend and collaborator Tim Walkiewicz, every chance I get I have to give Tim infinite respect for making such an awesome iconic set of elements that represents us so well.
On the Sace and Sems outlines I put the Semz and Sace outlines on there so they are always with me. ”Dont be scared” is self explanatory, and its really an extension of the “Sace” and “Semz” memorial.
In regards to the skull and crossbones patch the skull is from an original drawing by Clayton Patterson. Clayton is a Lower East Side legend and was the subject of my first film, CAPTURED, and who he is and what he represents is very important to me".
