Malcolm started custom work in 2014. It just started out as another of his projects. He was always working on doing something new. Seeing how he can contribute to society. His custom business has been the one-stop-shop for custom clothing. Offering the public his creativity as a service in creating unique alterations to their clothes. Even doing his own designs when he gets bored with store-bought designs. His most popular and favourite shoe to work on are the Air Jordan Retro 1 HI OGs, he’s done his best work on these classics. He loves the ability to create something new out of a finished product, especially when he gets the chance to freestyle for his customers.
