Nope, that was a variation at the time. When I first got a pair with that tape I thought they were fake too, even though the fit and construction were really really good. But I got eyes on an old Asayan mag scan later and verified it. Don't worry they're 100% visual uparmored product

Ah okay, I lost faith for a second anyway, I never want to sell my DELTA. Fuck it, I'll stash my dogfood in it when I'm 70 and live under a bridge

where it will sit for 5 years? I dunno, more and more old taps just gets listed for reasonable prices on Grailed I'm seeing and it moves then. Guys like us are the only people that really care anymore and we know the true value so aren't willing to pay dumb prices for stuff?

Just one more time but Herschell? WHAT THE FUCK? So fucked, such bullshit:


Compare and contrast with REAL TAPS (TM):


Herscehll is just as fucked as Helly Hanson collab tho, so fucked up.

What's next? WTAPS x Ikea? WTAPS x Norse Projects? WTAPS x Other random meaningless Euro bullshit?

Jules Gayton, Londoner and original stussy tribesman, owner of Leilow Hawaii that used to carry nbhd and wraps, and long time friend of Tet; is the product designer of Herschel, which is why they are collabbing I recon.
