Age does come into it, but there's a hell of a lot more garish and heavily branded stuff than there used to be.

every time you think the hype bubble is going to burst it simply expands a little bit more…

yeah true.

it's definitely got worse since Luke Meier & Brendon Babenzien left the brand. now it's just let's lazily slap 'SUPREME' on something and call it a day. the kids are lapping it up more than ever though so i guess it's a case of why would they bother putting in more time and effort and creativity when they're basically printing money with ease doing the bare minimum.

Agreed. They ruin the basics, even if some of the items had just slightly smaller graphics they would be better. Just seems like they're not considered designs. I used to look forward to the previews.

I think we're just old and Supreme isn't what it was in the 90's / early 2000's. Kids want stuff that's blatantly Supreme and that's why Supreme sells so much of it. They wouldn't sell a lot of the old stuff now to kids if it was plain.

I don't know why people wouldn't just move on to buy Oamc and Noah now. Both got better output than Supreme nowadays. Especially noah

Noah won't look half as sick on beach ball or a pair of pliers.

Fall/Winter 2010 was the last really strong Supreme season for me personally. I've picked up a few items that have released since then but my wardrobe has been dominated by other brands for a while now. Most of my stuff is Tenderloin, Timeworn Clothing (AtLast&Co & Butcher Products), The Real McCoy's, Nigel Cabourn etc with some Margaret Howell, Adam Kimmel, Junya Watanabe, Engineered Garments & Visvim thrown into the mix.

There's something about Supreme though. I just can't quite seem to let go of the brand completely. It's something deep rooted and emotional but I can't really put my finger on it. This latest collection may have helped me to finally say goodbye though! For now.

Noah is pretty cool, there's definitely been a few pieces from them that have stood out to me but nothing I've really felt was worth buying.
