January Session...

Happy New Year Jammers

Hope you guys are well rested and ready to go into the New Year with us and help us grow the brand into something that we can all be proud of. We have a lot in stock for you guys this year and we hope to have your continuous support in the sessions and the clothing brand. Thesis is for all… We are thesis.

We don’t normally have sessions in January, but we have made an exception this year. We have an international host that goes by the name of Toffee from our further homeland Switzerland. Born in South of Switzerland, Toffee has been travelling and working all over Europe and in Southern Africa with many well known and talented musicians and many other interesting projects. This culture lover is making street culture alive in so many different ways back in Switzerland. His set will range from jazz, ethiojazz, old-school hip hop, funk, nu funk, afrobeat and little bit of house. Supporting him on the night is a crowd favorite and back by popular demand is Otto the Jam Jar man. He is known to pull out some classic tunes out of his bag just for the TSJS massive. His set will leave your jaws on the floor. The live act for the night is Meat The Veggies, a band that has grown in stature and stage presence since the first time they graced the stage at thesis. Meat The Veggies have been with us since the sessions were in store and were the first band to play at thesis. We welcome them back minus a few members but the soul and core of the group is still there.

The host with the most is AD 85 and he will be accompanied by the crew selector wireless-g.

Please note that since this is a once off January session, the price at the gate is also once off.

Paez Shoes in Stock

Lightweight canvas shoes known as alpargatas first appeard in Argentina around 1830 among rural workers. We can thank the gauchos—those lonely, mythical, nomadic characters—for spreading the shoes's popularity. Traditionally made only in black or white, alpargatas were comfortable but lacked a certain zest. That got three friends thinking: why not make alpargatas with fun colors and patterns? So that's what they did. PAEZ shoes are produced using fair labor practices and, unlinke some competitors' shoes, are still made in Argentina by the Argentine people who love them so much.
