  2. I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece LA celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to proceed to the checkout on Dimepiecela site. I’ve read in Vanity Fair that the brand was bought out by a UK-based hedge fund for $50 m. I’ve just bought the Dimepiece Tribe Utility Duffle from Ebay and absolutely love it xox

  3. Wow! I was in the group of people that is in the picture of the Ripper hitting the bulls eye. My dad competed and got 57th. Met Steve Moyes at that meet. I was 11 years old that summer. Thanks would love to see more pictures of that meet!

    1. Hi Tony, whew if I’m reading your post right that was: Bullseye! July, 1975. Eipper-Formance Cumulus 5. photo by Leroy Grannis. I was given the B&W photos by Town Park manager John Wontrobski who somehow found and bought them, go figure.

      Guess I’ll have to dig through a small box of archival material and look for more gems.

      BTW, join the TAF FB page 🙂
