Who would have thought the brand we all got forced to wear by our parents back in the day would have a revival of the cool thanks to none other than Vybz Cartel? True and HILAR!!!
The sun reported on it yesterday...calling Kartel a 'reggae rapper' (seriously, is there not a black member of staff at The Sun that could have written this article?)
Apparently, Clarks have seen a huge increase in sales in Jamaica particularly but also in the UK and US.
From the article.....
"Kartel, 34 — real name Adijah Palmer — said Clarks are deeply ingrained in Jamaican culture and he himself owns more than 50 pairs.
He said: "Clarks is as much a part of the Jamaican culture as ackee and saltfish and roast breadfruit, I swear to you. Policemen wear it, gangsters wear it. Big men wear it to their work. Schoolchildren wear it to school. I personally have more than 50 pair of Clarks. I have more than there are states in America."
Michael Borge, marketing director for Clarks confirmed the company has seen increased demand in Jamaica in recent months."
Showing off their Clarks!
"Everybody haffi ask weh mi get mi Clarks". woiiiiiiiii
THIS IS ANOTHER INDICATION OF HOW POWERFUL 'BLACK' MUSIC IS ACROSS THE WORLD! love it
