We always say how bad this season is every year. But I dunno I think we are all just getting older and it isn't aimed at middle aged men

I had this bike in the 90's and was my main mode of transport when I lived in London. Not a light bike though Laughing out loud
Wouldn't fancy the chances of this staying put when chained up outside anywhere.

Never been into Supreme and know nothing of the Ethos !? that goes with the brand. Always raised an eyebrow at the crazy prices for a screen printed tshirt/lighter etc Skate wear?

Anyhoo - Nephew (12) is now fully Hypebeast - had to laugh at the W/E, him trying to convince his parents to buy him a supreme T… "its only £90!!" Laughing out loud

Isn’t that a bit disconnected? ‘90 quid for a t-shirt is ridiculous’. ‘How much was your coat uncle?’ ‘It’s goretex though, you’ll understand when you’re a bit older’

Majority of tees are sub 50 quid if you buy at retail. At the end of the day something's really only worth what someone will pay for it. If someone has 90 quid to spend on a tee or 900 to spend on a coat, fair play

Agree - how far to go down the rabbit hole that is "Worth"
Was more laughing at his 'rents having to deal with it.

Plus - generally speaking - an expensive Goretex jacket is going to be of superior quality and for the most part, you get what you pay for. Spending £90 on a basic tee with cheaply screen printed graphic on isn't the same.

I don’t think supreme have ever released a printed tee shirt that was 90 quid.

I think my first supreme printed tee shirt was £35 from hideout nearly 20 years ago.
How much are they now? £32?

^^Don’t let this get in the way of a chunk like krispyrice trying to make himself heard by somebody…going on his latest WAYWT he looks like he has more experience watching WWE and going to Reading festival than he does in brand awareness

Yeah I know the justifications but we’re no better really. Buying high end tech wear for a bit of drizzle etc. It’s just a mature equivalent of expensive tees. It’s not a dig. I’m as guilty as anyone of it

Kids Dad use to splurge on Stone island back in the day and showed him the SIxSUP collabs.

Trying to get into “high-end tech wear” is it? So that’s the reason you’re trying to flog your Sergio Georgini overcoat in the classifieds

That’s a nice coat Pents. You should invest if you ever get out of dressing like a yout in logo adorned tat from 2nd rate streetwear.

Amazed you have the front to Chuck it after the worst bodying in fuk history since the down blazer days Laughing out loud

Shame no one else seems to think so… maybe try your investment chat down at Rochford covered market instead of bullshitting on a message board about owning “high-end techwear”.

It was an example of buying something expensive and justifying it in fuk fashion I.e. it’s goretex, the build quality is amazing, the materials are amazing. It wasn’t about me personally but I can see why you missed that in your strop.

Never saw that coming.

Feed Me With Your Kiss T-shirt would have looked so much better with You Made Me Realise or Sunny Sundae Smile artwork.
