Pintrill x Grado = The Perfect Lapel Pin

Our good buddies over at Pintrill have hooked up with Grado Labs to release the Pin Grado, a one-inch headphone pin that needs to go on your bod ASAP. This little guy is Pintrill's seventh release thus far and marks the very first collaborative pin in their arsenal. 

The Pin Grado collab came about when Jonathan Grado reached out to the Brooklyn-based pin-pushers after seeing their work all over the Internet. Both brands have achieved a sort of cult status in the NYC community and now, decidedly, belong together like peas and carrots. 

At only 1.5 millimeters thick, this pin is modeled after the SR80e, which is part of Grado's e Series. Along with this drop, 12 more pins are set to be released over the next 25 days, including the famed and incredible poop emoji.

We've said it once and we'll say it again: these things are almost too hip for their own good—but damnnit if they don't look good pinned to your collar.


Jeremy Glass is the Vice editor for Supercompressor and his favorite emoji is either the floppy disk or the Easter Island Moai.
