Good move really.

Sad for the OG wearers though, don’t you think?

They have hardly any 'fashion' brands - an no, not DSM

Not really, people and things changes. Like Hello World and Locks have said once you get into your 30, you have to start forgetting about street wear and slim down your closet with quality.

OG wearers of brands like Nike, should of invested cheap shares in the 90s.

Depends on the person. I'm 48 and when I was in my 30s I tried to take that advice. It just wasn't me, went back to the streetwear I love.

But I guess I can pull it off because I'm actually still thin and people say I look like I'm in my 20s.

Hello World looked really old even in his 20s and Noble Locks has a gut.

I keep hearing this, and as much as I hate myself for it, i agree with MIL. I'm 34 this year, and even though I'm not the oversized-trouser wearing skater that i was in the 90s/00s, these were my formative years and the brands/style then still have an influence on what I cop, albeit a more refined one.

Things like flannels and small box logo sweatshirts yes.

Any hoodies or massive logo prints and you look ridiculous once you each a certain age (and that age depends how old you look).

Already seen a Brooklyn box logo in Soho today - I’m guessing Jagger?

It really depends on your lifestyle, some older guys do pull it off.

Go and spend £30 in primark basics, teamed up with a decent pair or nikes and your see no one cares what your wearing.

Yup and add new eras to that.

Carlyle Group will have continue making it seem limited but available like LV do. Jebbia probably knows this is the best time to walk away from the day to day aspect of the business and relax like Shawn Stussy.

If I was investing in supreme first thing I would do is severely increase the prices

Not sure that would work
It would kill the reseller market which is already struggling
Stuff stops selling out instantly
Highsnobiety doesn't post any dopey articles about how it sold out in 0.159595 seconds
Hype takes a lull
Something else takes its place as most hype brand

“Hype kiddies” ?

Have you actually seen who buys/queues for supreme? It’s not hype kids, it’s the most uncool 13-17 year old kids, mums and tourists.
Like Abercrombie was 7/10 years ago.
