As a kid, I practically lived at Memorial Park. It was my local basketball gym, but it was also so much more than that. Away from all the ups-and-downs that we face as kids, everything fell into place in that gym — on that court. It was the place I met my lifelong friends and learned lessons that would guide me after I created Bristol Studio — attention-to-detail, work ethic, and persistence.
I've always wanted to go back and show you Memorial through my eyes. In bringing you into a world so personal to me, I hope it helps you understand me, the brand, and why I do what I do on a deeper level. Thanks for reading.
PS — Modeling the collection is Jordan, a kid I met while playing in this gym who has since become part of the Bristol family. All photos are taken by Mark Peace.
