We begin the show addressing the heartbreaking and sudden news of Virgil Abloh’s untimely death. Caesar tries to put things in perspective seeing that he had been recently critical of his work.

Nike sent out an email recently to some of their retail partners essentially telling them that they wouldn’t be getting their inventory for this holiday season all the way through the summer of next year. We discuss how much of that was supply chain issues and how much DTC is playing a role in how brands like Nike are going to move forward.
