Cash Only Drop 5: Collection Overview
Sibling brand to Garth Mariano and Matt Evans’ Butter Goods and Lo-Fi, 2018-launched Cash Only returns to Flatspot to welcome yet another collection inspired by their subversive narrative and their love for their Aussie West Coast ties. Honing in on old school memorabilia and throwback graphics, a trait that follows in the footsteps of Butter’s admiration for cross community culture, Cash Only’s latest release is one that captures expressive characterisation in its rawest form.

Dubbed an ‘Australian based multi-faceted conglomerate’ known for their ode to fringe culture classics and their ability to capture the gritty, street-wise charm associated with evolutionary skate styling, Cash Only’s latest release turns its undivided attention to the pastel tone trend for FA21. Heavyweight fabrics such as premium cotton and insulative fleece address colder spells with a consideration for heat retention and generic comfort, whilst the brand’s urbanised underpinnings remain loyal to their ‘touch of sentimentality’ design style as they celebrate ‘90s era street graphics in line with contemporary necessity.
Known for their ode to all-time movie classics such as past season references to Martin Scorsese’s ‘Taxi Driver’ and the 1991 film ‘New Jack City’, new season Cash Only t-shirts such as the Corp Logo T-Shirt plays to the brand’s anti-establishment vibe with its rehashed big corp screen printed logo, whilst the expressive, graffiti-style Throwie T-Shirt captures their youthful character without detracting from their street friendly sense of appeal. Following on from similar styles such as their DJ T-Shirt and their Tupac Shakur inspired Trust Nobody tee from FA20, the playful For The Children T-Shirt and nostalgic Hench T-Shirt combine subtle big-wig music scene references with a hint towards the hot topic of preservational design. Shades of tan, berry, golden yolk and denim retain summer feels for the warmer months, whilst classic cuts and resilient 6.2oz fabrications ensure a reliable day on day wear regardless of applied setting.
In keeping with both seasonal and noted sportswear stylings, Cash Only sweaters such as the t-shirt complementing Corp Logo Hoodie and the collegiate inspired Felt Logo Hoodie arrive in casual shades of navy, charcoal and ash heather for a vintage sense of character, with the spacious hooded neckline, classic kangaroo pocket and cuffed trims a retained testament to tradition. Intricate embroidery across the chest of the Corp Logo Hoodie is matched by embroidered felt applique across its Felt Logo sibling, with Cash Only’s signature namesake designed as the focal point of each design. For admirers of the brand’s no-nonsense persona and admiration for yesteryear street culture influence, the canine themed Bulldog Crewneck Sweatshirt is crafted from resilient midweight fleece to deliver an insulative wear and a plucky undertone to match.
Tapping into the rising popularity of painter pants, work pants and expressive denim wear tradition, the Cash Only Baggy Denim Jeans, in both washed black and washed indigo, pair casual ‘90s influence with contemporary demand to complement both street and skate settings with ease. A slight taper and contrast gold stitching pays homage to industrialist aesthetics, with the brass hardware, concealed drawstring adjusters, dollar sign embroidery, bulldog rear patch and the classic waist tab all signifiers of Cash Only’s commitment to both quality craftsmanship and certified out-the-box ingenuity. Cash Only headwear staples such as the 6 panel cotton-twill Corp Cap in either monochrome black and white or in the ‘80s era multi tonal variant help provide ample protection whilst tackling any outdoor activity, with the graffiti inspired Cash Only Slipmats styled in honour of the brand’s illustrious music and street culture roots to deliver the perfect layer of customised protection across your turntable.
