KOTD Championship Chain

Champstiles Toronto has had the honour of making the brand new, handmade, burned and beaded CHAMP CHAIN. It made its debut at the Blackout 2, and was won by 'Whitby is the city's own PoRICH.

We knew this piece had to be bigtime, and it ended up being one of the most elaborate and detailed pieces so far.  

It was made with two seperate layers of laminated maple veneers, including red and black colour infused sheets, and a red aluminum outline of the KOTD 'Put your Money Where Your Mouth Iz' logo.

To finish it off, we shopped around for a custom combination of square shaped, gun metal beads in the shape of the CN Tower running up each side.  

The best part about this chain, is knowing how many talented and hungry MC's are gunning for it at any given time.  It represents a big part of the Toronto Hip Hop scene and is one of Champstiles finest.

On the hugely poplular - King of the Dot - YouTube channel, you can view the battle that the new CHAMP CHAIN made it's debut at, and many more... While your at it, you can peep the video highlighting the chain itself for a closer look!

Concrete Guerilla

The biggest CHAMP CHAIN to date… A custom piece made for Concrete Guerilla Clothing owner Duxx. 

He was pretty adamant about the fact he wanted the chain to be large... like real large... like some Flava Flav meets wood steering wheel large!  After meeting him, we knew the chain matched the person perectly.  

The largest CHAMP CHAIN to date, was presented to one of the biggest personalities we've met along the way.  Duxx has also been a big help, lending a hand with the Champstiles website and numerous late night technical issues.

Check out Concrete Guerilla for custom clothing, and Duxx's Concrete Films for all you video needs.
