In an interview a few years back about his brand Team Works, Neal Santos described his vision thusly: "Quality stuff, shit that won't fall apart after the first wash. And for inspirations, it's fuckin’ not even so much that it's New York shit, it's just shit that hits home. Enough of the bite of the bite of the bite of the funny logo bite. Show me something real, something heartfelt, something that actually means something. Show me. I don't care if it's a full print. Nigga, it could be a oversize full print. I might have to wear a turtleneck but you know, if it's real, dude hook me up."

This attitude perfectly sums up why Neal has been a NYC fixture (and friend of FG since Fat Beats!), and why we asked him to put together the first Foolcast of the Summer. It's hot out here!
