Epaulet Outfits Dave Ortiz Part One
To many, Dave Ortiz will always be revered for being the first employee and de facto manager of Zoo York. The innovative NYC skateboarding and graffiti-art collective was the prototype against which all other enterprising skateboarders would judge themselves.
Dave later went on to found Dave’s Quality Meats on East 3rd street, a seminal boutique and social haven for skateboarders everywhere. Having recently departed from DQM, Dave has since set up his second NYC institution, Dave’s Wear House—a magnet for street style and fixed gear bicycle culture. Head down to Baxter Street in Chinatown and you’re likely to meet him there. You’re even more likely to leave with one of his phenomenal bicycles.
This self-declared “world’s biggest Bad Brains fan” and the owner of Squishy the pug lives in New York City.
